Lyrics Edit

Sometimes I think, oh yes, I'd move to

Where all the shooting stars are gone

With all of our wishes


How could they bare, oh no, to carry

Around the stupid human hopes

So I'm going to help, I will!

Give me a key to lock

The door to the secret paradise

There are so many queuing up

And I won't let them in

Look at them

They are cheeky

They are never worthy to be saved

Sometimes I feel, oh yes, I could do

Almost everything I wanted

And it makes cry

※Lay your heart, lay your soul

Upon my magic carpet

Now we are flying

To Venus just to kill some time for tea, OK?

Remember, surrender

There's nothing you can do 'cause

Love's such a joke

Like a little Jack-in-the-box, you know

A little Jack-in-the-box
