Yukari SHIBUYA [Pulling the Strings]

You and I will try to find out the points where we exists each other.
Among so many realities, the horizon where you and I exist is a place as a dream.
When I draw your appearance near, my disordered mind will be recalled to my body.
My existence is as a dream.
Your existence and my existence are related on the horizon as a dream.
