But they told me, he swears

it is the time of love, a time for friends and adventure
Because the time of love is long and short,
It lasts forever, we remember it. 🎶

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
