He's pacing 

He's running 

But away from nothing 

Though there's someone behind him 

But how? 

In his condition 

Not to mention the tobacco is his system 

It's kept me guessing 

But I know your vision... 

Was clearly outlined 

You could run a marathon around my mind 

Well, we're almost there 

Bidding farewell to my perfect hair 

But for what it's worth 

I could give less than a political care 

Well... We made it! 

It's finished! 

life long dream now finished 

No more worthless dreaming throughout the nightime 

And no more empty feelings... 

Watching school trackers stroll by me from an empty sideline 

I guess hope carried me at the right time 

I'll always have your back 

Thank you... 


A physically disabled girl meets a blind boy in a new academy she is attending. It has always been the girl's dream to finish an entire track run, but is sadly unable to do so due to her disability. After hearing the girl's dream and seeing the heart touching look on her face, the boy decides to create that can help him overcome his disability, while helping the girl fulfill her life long dream. The boy decides to hide some of his favourite scents near every turning point of the track he plans to run through. Because of this plan, the boy is able to carry his friend (on his back) through an entire track he created and receive the greatest gift he could ever imagine... The smile on her face after years of clouded hope.
