“As soon as I came in, the moment I saw you, besides you, this café looks empty.” (Jay Park-Know Your Name Acoustic Ver.)
When I first saw the MV and heard the song, I really liked it. I thought the MV was really cute and so were the lyrics.
Well, the part about him watching her for an hour was, admittedly, a little creepy, but the rest of the song was really cute.
I loved how, in the MV, he does something that I’m sure a lot of us do…fantasize about attractive people we see, despite them being strangers. This version of the song was softer and sweeter than the original, which is why I think I like it so much more.
“Let’s take it one at a time, I’m different than the others. I just wanna know your name.”
“We used to look at the same place, do the same things…those dream-like days have passed by. It’s already been a long time since we’ve had different dreams.” (LC9-East Of Eden)
The lyrics for this song by LC9 are probably why this is my absolute favourite song from them. The lyrics are pretty heartbreaking, and even more so when I think about how this song might have been directed towards their former bandmate, Eden.
Eden was actually my bias in the group…I was pretty sad when he left. And then I was even sadder when I learned about the possible true meaning of this song and who it’s for.
Anyways, this song gave me the shivers…and also made me feel like tearing up.
So, I just happened to be listening to it…and then this post happened. Like always, I’ll end with another one of my favourite lyrics from the song:
“If you’re gonna be a star, shine even brighter. If you’re already a star, shine even longer. It’s not goodbye.”
