Intro:
(A man walks into a shop)
Man: Excuse me miss, do you sell 'The Iron Box Of The Island'?
Assistant: Yes we do, go straight and turn right and it's on the second shelf.
Man: OK. Thank you very much.
Assistant: You're welcome.

The corridor light closes up
I release my schoolbag
I run to the room's window to look outside
I think back to the book I just bought now
A book that is called 'The Iron Box of the Island'
Placed beside the bed on a big pile
The first page, the sixth page and the seventh page sequence
I could never have thought that the you reading this book with me would need to leave
It no longer is
No longer have
At present I already cannot see
The iron box's keyhole
Penetrated by light
I see it
It has rusted for a very long time
Very old very old
The surrounding dust has besieged me
Very dark very dark
I cannot find the key to the iron box
The thing placed beside the sweets is
The sweetness I really want to recall
Nevertheless filters you and me
Fall low and becomes beauty
The thing that is sinking inside the iron box is
The happiness you gave me
I really want to remember but I cannot remember
Why is it like this?
You are pulling me
Saying you have some hesitation
How is it like this?
The rain still hasn't stopped but you open your umbrella needing to go
I am already used to not going to stop you
Pass some time and you will come back
The love in my impression looks like it cannot withstand that time
Why is it like this?
You look at me saying you have already decided
I cannot hold you back
His hand should be warmer than me
The order of the iron box has become a diary
Has become air
Evolved becoming memory
The love in my impression looks like it cannot withstand that time
Therefore you give up
