Arikawa writes about a man meeting an old flame once more and inviting her for a tea or coffee, and playfully reassuring her that if she needs a shoulder to cry on, she knows who to go to. One of the Japanese commenters on YouTube for this song remarked that this must've been written when Japan was still in a very happy state. Well, 1981....still a decade away from the slow downward economic spiral. In any case, the song is as light and as happy as a fully-fledged hummingbird leaving the nest for the first time.
Strangely enough, "Merry Go Round" didn't get onto the "Reflections"album though I think it fits like a "T".
