Letter - From the Lost Days is a song from Silent Hill 3 and is track 12 in the Silent Hill 3 soundtrack. The song was composed by Akira Yamaoka with vocals sung by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. In the game, the song plays during Heather Mason and Douglas Cartland's car ride to Silent Hill.

The lyrics can be interpreted as Alessa Gillespie's thoughts and feelings towards her future self (Heather), or a 7-year-old Heather to herself.

In the Silent Hill film, the song plays on the radio in Rose Da Silva's car on her way to Silent Hill. The track stops when she is near Silent Hill and the radio undergoes interference.

Lyrics

A letter to my future self
'Am I still happy?' I began
Have I grown up pretty?
Is Daddy still a good man?
Am I still friends with Coleen?
I'm sure that I'm still laughing
Aren't I? Aren't I?

Hey there to my future self
If you forget how to smile
I have this to tell you
Remember it once in a while

Ten years ago your past self
Prayed for your happiness
Please don't lose hope

Oh, oh what a pair, me and you
Put here to feel joy, not be blue
Sad times and bad times, see them through
Soon we will know if it's for real
What we both feel

Though I can't know for sure how things worked out for us
No matter how hard it gets you have to realize
We weren't put on this earth to suffer, and cry
We were made for being happy, so be happy
For me, for you, please

Oh, oh what a pair, me and you
Put here to feel joy, not be blue
Sad times and bad times, see them through
Soon we will know if it's for real
What we both feel

We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy
We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy
We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy
We were put here on this earth, put here to feel joy

Trivia

  • There is no mention of any Coleen in any Silent Hill game. It can be assumed that she was Alessa's or Heather's friend.
  • The narrator mentions her father being a good man. Because of this, it is more likely that the narrator is Heather rather than Alessa because Alessa's father is unknown and Heather thinks of Harry as a good man.
