Note: Original lyrics are transcribed. This track (melodically) reminded me of the urban mix version of I NEED U; maybe it’s the chord progressions.

Wake up in Tokyo
Tokyo in Korean is 동경 (dong-gyung; 東京), which shares the same pronunciation as 동경 (dong-gyung; 憧憬), meaning “longing, yearning, admiration, aspiration.” It is thus possible to interpret this line as: “Wake up from aspiration.”

Feel like a tourist, so
Note: Alternatively, the lyrics can be “Feel like a torso,” where the torso (
the trunk of a statue without the head and limbs) describes (1) his stiff/tired body or (2) his being lifeless/spiritless.

I know it’s time to go

I see Pinocchio wearing a poncho
Pinocchio was created as a puppet but dreams of becoming a real human boy.

That’s me some time ago

Do I miss myself

Do I miss your face

I don’t know

I don’t know

 

Life is a wave that sometimes you cannot see

And ash is a thing that someday we all should be

When tomorrow comes, how different it’s gonna be

Why do love and hate sound just the same to me

 

I can’t sleep, homesick

Babe, I just wanna stay right next to you

If I could choose my dream, I just wanna stay right next to you
