Let's have a tea time together 2019
One lives inland
One lives waterland
A battle field in humanland
We try to rest our mind as child does
When the battle field is gone, we see only us in peaceful pure dance
In afternoon, when the weather is good for us to have tea
Perfect world Mom and I 2019
Perfect world Mom and I
Because we do not know what it is
as a child does not know yet
We let our soul free
Beauty itself will revealed
Z3 will be forever frozen
Tough fragility sense
Cold but warm inside
