Offers you a second
After which drags you away.

However I’ll all the time bear in mind~
That the laughter and the celebrity
Introduced us collectively
To play the sport
And we performed it, time and again and once more
And it was extraordinary~
Don’t neglect us, “I.”
We’ll be proper right here
Love you,
