I can tell why people go wild for them It’s the globally trending idol, EXO! Welcome! One, two, three! We are one! Hello, we’re EXO It’s your first time on Sketchbook Could you introduce yourselves? Hi, I’m Baekhyun Hi, I’m Chen Hello, I’m Suho, the leader of EXO Hi, I’m Xiumin Hello, I’m D.O Hi, I’m Sehun Hi, I’m Kai Hello, I’m Lay And I’m Chanyeol, the voice of EXO! The first song you sang for us was “Growl” Since you guys have such busy schedules, I’m sure some of you have to miss shows sometimes What do you do then? We just leave them out – Are we being too cool? / – Can you make it work? Sometimes one or two of us have other schedules, and for moments like that we have about 20 different versions of the song We have loads of them – Loads? / – Yes, and they’re all different – Can you perform in different languages too? / – Yes Only in Chinese and Korean – Just the two? / – Yes, only those – Yes, the two. / – That’s all we can do Even that shows how dedicated you guys are – Right. / – Thanks You performed “Growl” with our band today How was it to perform with a live band? We’ve never performed with a live band before – Really? / – So, to us it was new experience, and as I was watching them practice during rehearsals, I couldn’t believe how great they were They’re the best I think it was even better than our original song Also, I used to be in a band when I was in school so it was fun to experience that again – Right? / – Right I was in a high school band What was your band called? “Coma” “Coma”? So it was a rock band? Yes, of course You guys are well-known all around the world, but those over 30 still may not know you that well So let’s take the opportunity today and appeal to those over 30 and 40 All right Are you ready? Let’s do a huddle cheer – One, two, three! / – Yes! All right So let’s start the questionnaire of EXO I’ll start with an easy one What does EXO mean? It’s from the word “exoplanet.” Exoplanet? An exoplanet is a planet outside of our solar system It means that we’re stars from an unknown universe We’re stars that people have never even heard of! You’re a unique group that Earth has never heard of! Is that why you all have super powers? – That’s right. / – Yes, we all have one We have just about everything – He’s right. / – Really? Think of today as your last time doing this and show us what your powers are We’ll start with Baekhyun, who’s right next to me Baekhyun, what’s your super power? I have light, everyone Let me show you. One, two, three! – Gosh, it’s so dark in here! / – I can’t see a thing!
I can’t see a thing! Since this is my last time doing it, I’ll do it again! Right, so this is my super power That is how awesome EXO is Suho, what’s your super power? – Show that you’re still eager! / – I control water You control water? Okay, good All I ask now is that you edit that part – Really? / – Just until I drink the water Just until that? Sure. We’ll edit you spitting water and use it as our sneak preview We’ll make sure it’s down in slow motion too Next is D.O What’s your super power? I have super strength Wow, you really look powerful The man of super strength! Show us how strong you are We’ll help you any way we can You stomp your feet and we’ll all jump Sure, let’s all jump for him Stomp your feet and we’ll jump back startled Okay, let’s do it One, two, three! Oh gosh! That was incredible Amazing Awesome I was really fond of EXO Let’s go over to Kai who’s sitting behind D.O He’s got an amazing super power I can teleport Teleport? Okay, great Let’s see you teleport – Okay, then… / – Come over here! Sure, I can do that. Where should I go to? Teleport to wherever you want to go I’ll teleport myself and sit on that chair Okay One, two, three! You can come back now! One, two, three! Amazing! I think I’ll teleport myself back home now Did you see that? We couldn’t see him move That was incredible I’m sweating over here Guys, let’s give it up for EXO! – Thank you. / – Thank you There’s so many of you in one group, and you all get a few seconds alone on camera We say that you need to capture the camera Can you do that? I think you’ll need a secret weapon Of course. We all have one We each have one? Baekhyun, what’s your secret weapon? What do you do to capture the camera? I have my own thing that I do In our choreography, we have a lot of hip actions The fans call it the “Perverted Hips” Anyway, the moves look better when they’re done with some force Go ahead and show us Do you want me to show you? Pretend you’re getting your time on camera This is when the camera isn’t on me Okay, let’s start with that – About that much. / – This looks dirty enough! It sees you and now you’re being zoomed in on When that happens, you have to change your glare Okay I once hurt my back while doing that Right So who thinks that they can top that? Kai! To be honest, Kai knows how lethal he can be – That’s right. / – Lethal? He knows that his charm is lethal We do the same move and the rest of us are like this But Kai always turns his head and looks deadly And afterwards, he always finishes with a smile – Like this. / – That was quite accurate Can you show us the original so we can see? Yes, it’s been a while! Three, two, three, four! – He looks so cool. / – Of course He really is I heard that Suho’s secret weapon was dancing exactly to what the lyrics are saying
During our song “Overdose”, I do this for “Ask me anything” and pound my heart when I sing “You’re stuck in my heart” So you dance to the lyrics It’s like performance art – It’s art! / – Yes, art! So can you do it to any song I throw at you? Can you do it with ballad songs about breakups? I can’t wait to see this – Don’t back out. / – How about “Parting Taxi”? “Parting Taxi” by Kim Yeonwoo? It won’t be easy Is it possible? Let’s give him a round of applause! Give us the song! Sir, where do I have to go? Haven’t you had a crying customer before? Where would we end up after a long drive in the rain? – What’s that? / – Are you dodging the rain? I’m dodging the drops falling And this is the horse on the taximeter The horse running on the taximeter? I made a mistake of not closing the door though I’m sorry I’m sure it closed when he stepped on the brakes Is this how you entertain yourselves? – No, we’ve never done this before. / – Of course not! – I hope you don’t misunderstand us. / – We’re EXO You guys gained so much fame in such a short time, but I’m sure you had some hard times too Is there something that has helped you through that? How about you guys as a group? Do you cheer each other up? Of course We help one another and root for each other Before we came onto this stage, we huddled up and said “EXO, let’s love.” Everything we do, we do it as a team Whether you’re on a stage or on TV? We especially do the chant when we’re nervous That’s why we did it today before this show How do you do it exactly? Let’s do what we did today Yes, right before we came on stage Someone was on stage before us, so we did it quietly today We’ll show you how we exactly did it Let’s do it downwards This is them in their dressing room before the show One, two, three, EXO, let’s love! That’s really good I don’t think D.O. said that much today – Sehun too. / – That’s right So why don’t you tell us what you’re singing next? Introduce your next song for us Our next song is “LOVE ME RIGHT” Tell them what it’s about Our next song? Wait, about the song? Tell them what “LOVE ME RIGHT” is about Sehun, why don’t you help out? “LOVE ME RIGHT”? Our previous single was “CALL ME BABY” and compared to that, this one is more upbeat Yes, it’s upbeat. I hope you enjoy it! Okay, all right Let’s have D.O. introduce the song like a DJ, and with that, you’re all going to say goodbye. Okay? We will bring you “LOVE ME RIGHT” We’re EXO. We are one! Thank you! This is where we say goodbye to EXO Thank you! Thank you Oh yeah! Come on! Take your time I’m excited tonight So tonight Let us run to the moon Just right, start the engine and step on the pedal Everything is special, it all suits you Whatever you want, I’m going to make it work I’m going to party till the sunset What is this mysterious feeling? Come to me, before the sunrise Without you, anywhere I go I’m a nobody This street is a runway Your eyes on me are like the Milky Way Just love me right Baby, love me right Don’t hesitate and come to me You’re my charming universe Just love me right You are my whole universe Just love me right Just love me right, you are my whole universe Shine a light, run through the stars Past the Galaxy
We can’t stop The moonlight on us is same as always I’m not lost in your orbit yet I can do this all night long Without you, I’m only half a man The night’s full of bright moonlight Stars are like fireworks Why don’t we fly higher? My heart is about to burst and I can only think of us With the Earth below our feet, love me right This street is a runway Your eyes on me are like the Milky Way Just love me right Baby, love me right So come on baby, make me blind Your universe is more beautiful Just love me right You are my whole universe Just love me right Just love me right, I just want to make you love me Though I pass many nights Only you shine brightly in my sky Whisper only to me You and I paint the night sky This street is a runway Your eyes on me are like the Milky Way Just love me right Baby, love me right Don’t hesitate and come to me You’re my charming universe Just love me right, you are my whole universe Just love me right Just love me right, you are my whole universe Just love me right Just love me right, I just want to make you love me You got to love You got to love me You are my whole universe You love me You love me You are my whole universe This next guest He’s the kind of guy that I hate He’s sort of like a prince His voice is so relaxing So all in all, we’re very much alike This is Roy Kim (“Spring Spring Spring”) Spring, spring, spring, spring is here It smells the same, just like when we first met The tree next to the bench you were seated on Is still there as well I said that I’d forget you over time But as I was saying it, I knew that it wasn’t true My love, I knew right away the moment I saw you My love, please spend this spring with me Spring, spring, spring, spring is here again My heart ached without you in this winter Just like cherry blossoms bloom again I sit on this bench again and picture our memories Sometimes love does get a bit numb But now I know that even that was love My love, I knew right away the moment I saw you My love, please spend this spring with me Let’s stop keeping it in, let’s not hesitate anymore I’ll leave the heartbreaks behind and say
My love, I knew right away the moment I saw you My love, please spend this spring with me Guys, please join me! Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring Louder! Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring One more time! Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring Over here! Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring Spring, spring, spring, spring Thank you Didn’t I tell you that he copies everything about me? It’s been a while since we’ve had him here Please welcome Roy Kim Hello, it’s a pleasure to meet you all When you think of Roy Kim, the word “acoustic” first comes to mind But what kind of music do you like listening to? Of course I listen to a lot of acoustic music, but I also like “Loser, loner, turtle and crane…” It’s a very complicated song One that I probably can’t make myself I could try but it wouldn’t come out as cool as that That’s right But I’d love to try it one day. I’m fascinated by it The style that you do is straight-forward acoustic So unlike other styles like dance or hip hop, it’s not easy to charm the ladies easily or instantly Don’t you want to do something to appeal to them? Of course I do. I really want to I do try and figure out ways to allure them Like seducing the fans? I’ve thought of a lot of ways to do that, and those who have been to my concert will know how talented I am in that field Really? I’m truly talented I can’t imagine you being all seductive! Can you show me how you do it? I want to learn! It’s not that hard It isn’t? Okay Let’s see Roy flirt! Do you need some water? You only need some water What do you do with it? Which is your better angle? Me? I’m handsome from all sides But I’ll go with this side The Adam’s apple is a great idea So you look to the side and You have to drink slowly They love it! Look at them! – So here… / – Seducing fans with your Adam’s apple! Let me try what I’ve just learned here Yours sticks out a lot We’re done with the Adam’s apple. What’s next? Then it’s something I do while singing You can’t let people know that you’re doing this on purpose As you’re singing, you walk across the stage Then you undo one or two buttons That alone will get them wild
You have nice collarbones So two buttons? Wait, I need to undo one more Okay. What’s next? – Then you turn to the audience. / – The third tactic Find someone that looks lonely Someone that looks like they’ve never been in a relationship See if there’s someone like that Just one? There are so many here I can’t even Keep looking at that person That person only? I got it Then people within about a two-meter radius will think that I’m looking at them So you always look at that person every time you say something! Yes, always that way Great Also, you get all sweaty after singing a few songs I run around and act like I’m in the zone which makes me sweat because I’m embarrassed That’s right – So then… / – This is your last trick! Yes, it is You get a towel or something and wipe yourself down You wipe everywhere you can on the stage Really? Wow, you’re so dirty. Then what? – After you’re done, / – After wiping everywhere? – Don’t look at your normal spot. / – So someone else? Yes, you throw the towel to someone else You throw the towel that’s drenched in your sweat? Yes, the audience loves it Do you gently throw it like this? Or do you throw it like a pitcher? Like those in Greek temples Just throw like that? Okay, that’s all great stuff So which song do you do this to? “Spring, spring, spring, spring is here…” Like this? No, not to something like that No? Maybe to a more jazzy one – Something sexy? / – Sexy and seductive So let’s take a look at how Roy flirts Give him a round of applause! I’m so thirsty I suddenly want to get drunk Are you thirsty too? Let’s do this! (“The Moon of Seoul”) I am lying in an empty room And thinking of this and that A long sigh comes out with cigarette smoke Another day goes by Not a thing seems to work Even my love has left me With the moon in the sky shining on my glass, I drink one shot and hand one over This is how my night goes The moon I see tonight seems so sad Like me, you’re living with an empty and lonely heart You’re living with sad memories You’re living with An empty You have to keep the “woo” going Heart You get over here! Oh, I forgot the towel! My heart was pounding just now!
You forgot to toss your towel I’m so sorry. Here He almost had me there. It was amazing Let’s all thank Roy for that incredible performance So let’s calm things down a bit I’ll button my shirt and come back to Earth As a singer-songwriter, he writes a lot of songs Could you sing for us one of your most recent ones? I really want the audience to hear some of your work Is there one you can sing for us? There is. I’ve actually been writing a lot these days In my debut album, there’s a song called “Grandfather and the Camera” As a follow up, I wrote “Grandmother’s Letter” What’s the story of the song? So in the new year It’s all in the lyrics, so I’ll just sing the song Okay. I’ll go and get your guitar Thanks – “Grandmother’s Letter”? / – “Grandmother’s Letter” Let’s give him a round of applause The day when the whole family celebrated the new year My grandmother handed me an envelope Embarrassing enough, it wasn’t what I expected Instead there was a letter inside “Always be generous to others.” “Don’t judge others or complain.” “Don’t try to win things that are unjust.” “Always be grateful” “And always love.” Great, that was awesome It’s a great gift that his grandmother gave to him I think people will love it, so when will it be released? I don’t know Right now, I don’t have any plans I’m still trying to organize what I’ve written so far Many are waiting for your new album In hopes of hearing some of it on Sketchbook, I’d love for you to sing another song. What will it be? I’ll be singing “Nothing Lasts Forever” The two of them seem to know it. Thank you so much “Nothing Lasts Forever”. And that’s true Sketchbook also… Wait, that’s not it Sketchbook is going to last forever Sketchbook will last forever I’m talking about everything else including me Even moments like this won’t last forever Who are you talking to right now? So If Sketchbook needs a new host, you know who to call Okay, all right With this next song, we will say goodbye to Roy Thank you (Nothing Lasts Forever) Nothing lasts forever But I hope that my love is always beautiful Nothing lasts forever But I hope I’m special to someone Nothing lasts forever But I hope the voice in my heart does I may not be beside you right now But I hope later on we can reminisce forever
About stories without any doubt After it all passes, I hope there’s only love Nothing lasts forever But I hope this world becomes a warmer place Nothing lasts forever I hope we remember how precious familiar things are I may not be beside you right now But I hope later on we can reminisce forever About stories without any doubt After it all passes, I hope there’s only love La la la la After it all passes La la la la After it all passes Nothing lasts forever Nothing lasts forever, after it all passes Nothing lasts forever Nothing lasts forever, after it all passes After it all passes This next artist was on our show about ten years ago One day a petite young girl appeared on TV and blew us away with her appealing tone Now that girl is all grown up and in the front line of those promoting gugak to the public The voice from heaven, the idol of the gugak music Please welcome Song Sohee! No way, it doesn’t always work No way, it doesn’t always work Isn’t she beautiful? Her outfit is also exceptional today Thank you You always wear a lot of hanbok and you always look great in them,
but today you’re exceptionally beautiful Can you tell us about your outfit for us? Today you had an idol group and young artists here – Yes, that’s right. / – Yes Roy does actually look really young for his age Right, and I wanted to look young too. I’m only 19 I chose this because it made me look like a young lady Thank you That’s the story behind it She looks so pretty today My mother was a hanbok designer She spent her whole life doing it, and that’s why it gets me slightly emotional You look amazing in it – Thank you. / – Great Most of you already know who she is, but this is for those who don’t She was born in 1997 Her parents got her into gugak at the age of five In 2008, when she was a fifth grader, she appeared on KBS’ “National Singing Contest” She won first place in both the first half of the year and the end of the year show In 2010, she was awarded the “Prize for Proud Koreans” for her efforts to raise Korea’s status through gugak Thank you Do you remember being on “National Singing Contest”? I first entered when I was eight, and they gave me the “Fan Favorite” because I was cute I worked hard and entered again when I was 12 We have a video of her for those who missed her then Let’s watch it together – What’s your name? / – It’s Song Sohee! – Song Sohee? / – Yes What family of Song are you from? From the house of Song Hae What are you going to sing today? “Odoldok” That’s a song from Jeju Island. Okay, let’s hear it Please give her a round of applause! You also left behind the one you love The moon is bright and I You were so cute That little girl has grown into a beautiful young lady Let’s give her another round of applause Thank you I read recently that your tour was a success Do you only sing gugak at your concerts? I put together a band in my name and I toured with them I did do some different styles infused with gugak such as rock, blues and even some jazz I also danced like a girl group in my hanbok – Really? / – Yes, I tried to do a lot of things You said that you infused gugak with rock I really can’t imagine what that sounds like I sang “Gangwon-do Arirang” to that style Can we hear it for a second? Let’s give her a round of applause (“Gangwon-do Arirang”) Ari-ari, ssuri-ssuri, arariyo I am crossing over the Ari-ari hill Ricinus and camellia, it’s not time to bloom Whom are you groomed so beautifully to seduce? Ari-ari, ssuri-ssuri, arariyo I am crossing over the Ari-ari hill Thank you I’ve been hosting Sketchbook for seven years now, and I’ve met a lot of musicians It’s been a while since I’ve had chills down my spine That was amazing Thank you So how can we not watch her singing and dancing like a girl group? What did you sing then?
I sang one by Girl’s Generation I chose the one with the easiest dance moves, but still I found it too difficult I had to change a few moves so there’s not much to see Let’s give her another round of applause (“Girl’s Generation”) Don’t make fun of me because I’m too young I was too shy to even say that Don’t make fun of me because I’m too young Those are words that just brush past me Don’t make fun of me because I’m too young Thank you She was good, wasn’t she? It wasn’t awkward at all I loved how clear the lyrics sounded Your voice is truly a gem Thank you What do you find so charming about gugak? It gives you a certain pride that you don’t get from other styles When I was young, my friends made fun of me for doing gugak That’s normal for kids that age They said that gugak was old and it was only for grownups But as I’ve been learning the trade, now I am proud of keeping up our precious culture That’s why I always say that the best thing about gugak is pride Even though she’s young, she knows what she wants and she works hard to achieve it We should all learn that from her Last but not least, this is a question I ask all newcomers to Sketchbook It’s a hard one What’s your dream? When I was young, I had a huge dream “I’m going to be an intangible cultural asset.” “I’m going to get in to a gugak high school.” “I’m going to be a professor.” But all that means nothing to me now For me, at least None of them is important to me to achieve my goal – Right. / – That’s why I just want to be one of the artists that bring gugak closer to the people It may be small, but that’s my biggest dream Thank you I hope she doesn’t lose her style and brings us closer to the world of gugak It’s time for your next song. What will you be singing? This next song is very optimistic and full of hope We all have a lot of issues in life, and this tells us to just have fun I will bring you “Taepyeongga” All right With this song, we will say goodbye to Sohee Thank you for being here Thank you (“Taepyeongga”) What is there to gain from getting annoyed? What is there to gain from getting angry? There are many things that upset us So let’s live our lives having fun from time to time Ninano! Nililiya, nililiya, ninano! It’s good, yes, it’s good Bees and butterflies flap their wings around Trying to find a flower Light the lanterns My love that I have forgotten will come back You leave this earth empty-handed So what’s the reason not to have fun? Ninano! Nililiya, nililiya, ninano! It’s good, yes, it’s good Bees and butterflies flap their wings around Trying to find a flower Forsythia, azaleas in full blossom are not as good as
Apricot trees, orchids, chrysanthemums and bamboo You don’t know the Four Gracious Plants And what’s more upsetting than that? Ninano! Nililiya, nililiya, ninano! It’s good, yes, it’s good Bees and butterflies flap their wings around Trying to find a flower Bees, butterflies after flowers fly towards the scent And the golden nightingale flies through the willows Ninano! Nililiya, nililiya, ninano! It’s good, yes, it’s good Bees and butterflies flap their wings around Trying to find a flower Once you hear a song sung by this artist, you’ll know immediately who the voice belongs to That’s how unique her voice is Unfortunately, this artist was a bit unwell so she took some time off from music, but now she’s come back to us healthy as ever I hope you all give her a big welcome The artist with the most precious tone This is Jang Jane
It’s been such a long time and I couldn’t be happier I think it’s been about three years Please welcome Jang Jane. Hello! Hi, it’s great to meet you all I was really worried after hearing about your health I was a bit ill and while I took some time off, I did a lot of thinking Yes, that sounds productive How ill were you? Can I ask why? I have dystonia The left side of my body will become paralyzed starting from my hand It’s something that I have to live with Are you okay now? I always have to take good care of me You got famous for singing with your guitar If that’s happening to your left side, how do you play it? I took a big leap and got rid of it You must have felt so empty I’m okay now, but I did back then At that time, I didn’t know what to do The fact that I was different from others felt like such a big deal for me Things just got a little down But it’s okay. It’s fine What else did you do during your time off, other than exercise and look after yourself? I just had fun Doing what? I met with my friends, went for drinks and talked I’m at that age where I’m curious about dating, so we talked a lot about that You only talked about it? You didn’t do any of it? Well… Yes, I talked about it a lot No wonder your new songs have these weird titles One of them is called “You’re Too Easy To Figure Out” Who on earth did you date? I know… Who on earth was it? There’s one that’s also meaningful “Climax” “Climax” means that deep inside… Oh gosh! Why are you surprised? The climax of joy when you meet someone That’s what I was talking about The climax of love – Isn’t that what your song is about? / – That’s right The climax of both sadness and joy passes, and our breakup is now in the past Like “the spring days are gone”? – That’s right. / – Don’t we get along so well? – I think we do. / – We wrapped that one up smoothly You wrote a lot of the lyrics of this album Yes, I wrote all of them You said that you wanted to write about things that aren’t usually dealt with in folk songs That’s why I wrote about the thing – Sorry? / – The thing What’s “the thing”? That’s what you’re all imagining Really? Can you do that? I wanted to do a funny folk song So what you’re singing about is “the thing” Yes, “the thing” Can we hear some of “the thing” right now? I think it’ll be clearer once we hear it – Is the title “The Thing”? / Yes, it’s “The Thing” Let’s give her a round of applause (“The Thing”) What made us drift apart one day Is it because of the thing? It makes me so angry I’m sure the ladies get it Do you all get it? Really? They’re nodding as if they do! Gosh, I’m so curious I should listen to the whole song to see what it means So now let’s talk about your new album You’ve released it after a three-year hiatus What is the album called? It’s called “LIQUID” and it’s about relationships that flow Liquid means fluids, right? It’s about a relationship that’s constantly moving which in other words is the love of a man and a woman I read your album commentary and it says
that you’re an artist of French folk What is “French folk”? Yoon Jongshin, my producer Why does his name keep popping up? Anyway, he named my style Like this? “Hey, I named your music style.” He called it French folk because the arrangements were done mostly in that style But I still think it’s Korean folk So Jongshin just wanted to call it that? Yes, he wanted to make a new genre He just named it with the most posh word he knew! He has this longing for France How did you know that? He really does He thinks that he’s French! He kind of does Okay, so “French folk” What’s it like being here after such a long break? Being here makes it feel real It’s real that I’m back and that I’m singing again Also it’s my first show back so I’m excited and happy To make up for all that you had to go through, we hope that you’ll take the stage often With this next song, we will say goodbye to Jane Thank you (“Eat”) The unfamiliar sight with a warm embrace Feeling his gaze upon me I turn my head and say hello Good morning, it’s a good morning Would you like to go for a simple meal or something? We put on our coats And we both head towards the door The unfamiliar scent covers my body Get your nose closer and sniff Yesterday that past like simple and natural We’re still awkward around each other We know that we need more time together What’s the rush? Let’s take it slow Go downstairs and eat something first We’re still awkward around each other There’s nothing we can do The night has already passed We can say goodbye here or a week later Get together for a simple bite Why are you staring at me? Are you still not used to me? You say that it was like a dream And that makes me laugh, I think you’re cute It’ll get better over time I’ll call you, let’s grab a bite to eat first
But first eat your order that was just served Did you have fun today? Yes! Thank you very much For our final performance today, 19-year-old Song Sohee will take on a style that we’re not used to seeing her doing I hope you all stay tuned This is where I say goodbye Thank you for staying with me until this hour, and special thanks to everyone in the audience I’ll see you next week. Thank you! (For 14 years, she only knew of gugak) (But today she sings as the 19-year-old Song Sohee) The season when flowers wither with the wind, I still feel like I’m holding your hand Back then the flowers were beautiful And I didn’t know that like I do now Your scent travels through the air I thought it would be forever 25 and 21 The ocean that day was quite friendly I still feel like I can touch it You and I were still there under the sunshine And we dreamed of a heart aching happy dream The song from that day travels through the air I thought it would be forever The you and me of the past Your voice, your eyes Even the tender warmth of your body The more I remember, the farther it gets I can’t hold onto you who’s scattering away The season when flowers wither with the wind I still feel like I’m holding your hand Back then the flowers were beautiful And I didn’t know that like I do now Your scent travels through the air I thought it would be forever 25 and 21 The song from that day travels through the air I thought it would be forever The you and me of the past
I thought it would be forever, you and me of the past 25 and 21
