  • 'Everything's different all of a sudden, After you showed up. The sun is suddenly warm, The tears were suddenly salty, I suddenly don't care about looks. Memories are cocoons in the heart, After you turned around. Untouchable wounds, An itch to review nightly, Am I supposed to be happy growing up. You said Callisto was your name? It suddenly becomes a star. The way you smile, makes me want to go through all your stories. You said a singer lived in the east Four Rings, I said i'd only met one teenager. You say you don't like snow very much. There's nothing I can do, even if I had an old umbrella' * WeChat Translate
