First Music Game Appearance: beatmania IIDX 6th style
Other Music Game Appearances:
I was the happiest guy That's what everyone said Inside I was lonely then Still I played the part so well No one could ever tell Just a smiling face on an empty shell And then look what you did when you came along (Look what you did) Made me see I was wrong Often I'll think that I'm losing my mind, But I don't really care 'cause I'm satisfied Look what you did to me now My resistance is all breaking down Now it's up to you, I'm in love with you, anyhow (When I dream of you Oh, won't you look) Look what you did to me now Turned my universe upside down Thinking not who I was anymore I guess I was just playing a clown I thank heaven above For showing me what it's made of Look what you did to me now I'm in love
