written at around 11 p.m. (the most emo hours), as i was feeling very sad about how long it's been since i've been back to hong kong. the song is about missing a place away from home, one that you're very connected to, and feeling as if life and family is leaving you behind. hopefully, you all enjoy it :-)

lyrics

red brick
bamboo towers
line the skyline
with much power

yellow cars
smoggy skies
neon lights
attract your eyes

Hong Kong is moving around you
you can't help but stand there in awe
Hong Kong is moving without you
but you can't help and drop your jaw

a home away from home
yet oh so far away
been years since I've been back
my memories will slowly fade away

late nights
were alright
dim sum
was always fun

big family
too much food
just eat more
and don't be rude

your family is living without you
all the way across the sea
your family is moving without you
no matter how much you plea

a home away from home
yet oh so far away
been years since I've been back
my memories will slowly fade away

i don’t know when i’ll be back
it feels like i’m losing track
of time

my memories feel so vivid
