Hey Erika You know I like you very much.
I want to see you on the correct face, but is not true that I can see you.
Do you know what I mean, I mean you are singer star, and you live in Japan but I live in Thailand.

So I think it is not true that I can see you , but I can see you at the pictures instead.

Good Bye and Good Luck for everything.

LoVe YoU ずっと大好きです。
