The lyrics deliver the boyish innocence of desperately wanting to stay with someone until the end despite having a painful and incomplete love is surrounding them. Further highlighting Hyunseung’s unique vocals that fill listeners’ ears starting from the intro, the guitar riffs are also a point of appreciation.
Fans will definitely need something to hug as they listen to this part of the song, “I often have bad dreams these days/Don’t wanna feel bad anymore/Get it out of my head right now/So beautiful beautiful by my side/So beautiful beautiful by my side/Since I met you/All day, I feel like I’m walking on the clouds”. Hyunseung’s singing vocal in English also added more depth to the already soul-stirring song.
