She presents a melancholy reminiscence of her first love with a nostalgic and youthful feel.
The first great love of my life
was a boy with green hair
whom I saw in a movie of the same name.
He was the saddest boy in the world
on account of the green hair
he suffered and shed many tears.
But I thought – How beautiful it is
that green hair
And wanted it for myself.
Thus began a preference for
the melancholy and exotic lover
that’s caused me trouble all my life.
