Dear mr. Brandon Boyd,
Hi. I am writing you a letter now, and the funny thing is i’m still bothering to write you letter even though you will never notice me.. but still I want to write a letter to you.
I am Lexin Ann Morales and I am loving your band for a few years now. Well, I just want you to know that I love your band.. so much. Once when I was a kid I heard the song “Drive” on the radio and I was hooked.But I was too young then, that I didn’t bother to know what’s the title of that song, all I knew was “Wow, that song was good.”
Years had passed and I met my boyfriend when I was in high school. I used to borrow his stuffs. When I borrowed his PSP, I browsed his music playlists and I saw that most of his songs are “Incubus”. I was so curious so I listened to the song titled “Drive”. When I first heard the tune of the song I knew it was familiar. Yeah, the song that I was used to love when I was a kid!
From that day on, I just realized that Incubus is just an amazing band. I can’t stop listening to your music! I downloaded ALL of your songs so that I can listen to you whenever I want.
A wish also grew inside me that day–I wish I could see you guys perform. I would do anything just to see Incubus and if I am given a chance, I would be very glad.
Once in 2011 I heard from my boyfriend that Incubus will be having a concert in Manila, that’s why he attended the concert. I was so sad then, I didn’t come because of two reasons: I have no enough money to buy the ticket and my parents won’t let me to come. I remembered when I cried myself to sleep because I won’t be able to see you guys perform live. How I wish I was there in the moment where i’ll see my most favorite band performing.
Because I love you guys so much, I created a tumblr blog about Incubus and currently it has a lot of followers. I post all my editions and edits of your photos there, I also post your songs and tour date pictures and videos. Most of my followers are from Brazil, Mexico and Chile.
Sometimes i’m getting a lot of messages from my followers of how much they love your band, and we will share how we love Incubus, what’s our favorite song, what album is the best for us. Sometimes they also share that they’ve been into your concerts for how many times, and I will be sad and I will envy them. But seeing these followers of my blog makes me happy. Running this blog is an achievement for me, and you are my inspiration, Mr. Brandon Boyd, and the rest of the boys in the band.
When i’m sad, I always listen to adolescents and suddenly I will feel better. I remembered when my boyfriend once broke his promise to me and all I can do is to listen to Promises, promises all night because I relate to the lyrics a lot. When I’m happy, I listen to you too. All I can say is that Incubus has a big part in my heart. You guys will always be a part of me and I will be forever a fan of yours.
I am never dreaming for you to notice me, I know that’s impossible. But I just have once wish
to make—Can you come back here in the Philippines?
I know that it’s impossible and i’m not in the position to wish something to you, but I want you t know that it’s my biggest dream to see your band performing live. And if you’ll come back here and have a concert, I promise i’ll do anything just to have money and buy ticket for your concert. If my parents won’t let me to come, i’ll do anything just to make them let me. If i’ll have school classes on the day of your concert i’ll ditch my class! If I don’t have any money, i’ll work, or i’ll sell my cellphone or things!
See how desperate I am just to see you guys.
I love you, mr. Brandon Boyd. I love you too Mike, Jose, Ben and Chris. I know that you’ll never notice me, but I am hoping one day that you’ll know that someone like me exists.
Thank you for the wonderful music, Incubus.
Thank you for existing and being an inspiration to others.
I am really looking forward to the day that you’ll come back here in my country, and I will be there to see you.. I wish that day will come.. If that happens, I will be the happiest creature on earth.
Your lover from Philippines,
Lexin Ann Morales
