By Kai Murga
Every time I see someone I think about playing
Hide and seek
And when I think about my family, thousands of miles away, I think
Don’t step on the cracks
And when I see someone without a mask I think,
We’re playing the game of life and
If I were to say Simon says, would you change your mind
If we play a game
Like we did when we were kids
And needed each other to not play alone
Would anything change?
