Whitlams

Whitlams - The Ballad of Lester Walker

rate me

Lester Walker wasn't a great talker

He went to parties but always stood along

People amused him, he was always looking on

But now our Lester Walker's gone

Bus rides, highways, looking for a new place

Found a new space and called it home

Seen on beaches making castles in the sand

Being alone was all he'd ever known

Well he's gone

Our Lester's gone from our home

That's what his mother cries

He doesn't even phone to tell her how he is

His room's the same s when he was just a little boy

I know that he'll return some day, yeah she knows he will

Three months later in the park he meets a boy named Sid

They talk of all the things they'd do and all the things they did

Everyday they'd sit and meet and talk and watch and laugh

So close a bond yet so innocent, a love was formed

The two of them climb up a hill and in a warm embrace

They watch the sun slowly set behind a mountain range

All they needed was there and then nothing needed to be said

'Cause nothing can disturb the unconcerned

But then

In the morning paper Lester reads that Sid is dead

Got stabbed in the park late last night

Lester cries out in pain, runs to the window and releases himself

Now side by side they lie in the mortuary

Well he's gone

Our Lester's gone from our home

That's what his mother cried

The phone smashed on the floor she knows where her son lies

His room's the same as when he was just a little boy

Never to return to his mother's loving arms

Oh yes he's gong

Our Lester's gone from our home

She cries and cries

No he don't phone no more, she knows where he now lies

His room's the same aw when he was just a little boy

Never to return to his mother's loving arms
