Zen Hermit 2005 (Uttar Pradesh)

I knew we would change as we mature,
we did infact.
We do not hang at those playgrounds anymore,
but i atleast hoped our bond will remain intact.

I called you that evening,
to go for a stroll.
I was gonna tell about the city of seasoning,
but you had ulterior motives that your face couldn't hide at all.

You were speaking your mind,
i saw your determination.
Guess in love you've gone blind,
and i listened to our friendship's obliteration.

Don't worry my friend,
i'll still be there for you.
I don't know if our bond will ever be mend.
I don't know if we can ever start anew.

I've read the script,
maybe till end from the start.
And my costume fits,
so i'll play my part.
