peoples are like songs

Oh btw awhile ago I was awoken by the random realization that All Star by Smash Mouth is a decent Stolen Century song

i hate that you’re right but you’re right. 

Well the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back streets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glowHey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

The place was calm, the light of the fireplace was soft against both of your skins, the atmosphere was surreal, almost as if Minseok’s living room now was a ballroom from another time, maybe one of those you saw many and many times in movies that showed the lives of people in the ‘800.

Just like those people, you and Minseok were dancing to an imaginary song, one which played in your minds, maybe different, but still you managed to dance at the same slow pace. Your bodies attached one against the other, Minseok’s big hands were hugging your waist and your arms were wrapped around his strong neck, your head resting on his chest as you listened to his heartbeat playing a music only for you.

Maybe that music was the one playing in your head, the one that kept you moving. Your feet were naked, his still wrapped in the black socks, you could feel the heat of his wooden floor, heat caused by the fireplace crackling, your only source of light. Outside the two am dark night was surrounding everything.

Minseok lowered his head a little, his right cheek resting against the upper side of your face, next to your forehead. ❝Baby❞ he started, his hands slowly trailing down from your hips, touching your buttcheeks and spreaking them a little, before he touched the hem of your golden cocktail dress. The one he bought to you almost two months before.

You raised your head a little, your tired and slightly dirty of make-up eyes looked inside of his cat like ones. The intensity of Minseok’s stare made you weak on the knees as usual. Since the first day you met the big boss, the famous CEO, you couldn’t help but feel weak and useless in front of him.

Minseok leaned into you, his lips brushing yours, his eyelids became heavy suddenly, almost as if his sleepiness crashed into him in just a second. ❝You shouldn’t be here❞ he whispered, scared of something, scared of you, of what you could have done.

Hearing that sentence your heart broke, your lips retracted from his, leaving both of you with a sensation of emptiness.

Empty - that was what you both were destined to be, because you couldn’t have Minseok and Minseok couldn’t have you, even if moments like those existed in your realities, you still couldn’t be part of each other's’ day lives.

When you first met Minseok you were working at your sister’s cafeteria and seeing the strong man entering the place and giving you a buck of fifty dollars just for a cup of dark coffee, asking you to keep the all change, surely intrigued you, but in the wrong way.

If everything started with money, now it was ending with two broken hearts and a sad reality. Kim Minseok was the CEO of an important company in the centre of Busan, then became your lover, you were the other girl, the one he searched for when his wife couldn’t satisfy him. Soon you however became the only girl in his mind, but he couldn’t do it because having a flame with a normal waitress and divorcing from his wife was going to have a bad influence on his company, which was what he only cared about.

You swallowed the pain, you swallowed some pieces of broken heart who raised with the bile and the sadness. Minseok’s hands were now hidden under your dress, playing with the string of your thong, something in that action made you feel like shit, you wanted to cry.

I should go home❞ you agreed, your voice a whisper too. You knew his wife wasn’t in the house, but you still talked in a hushed tone because talking normally would have meant destroy the moment.

Or maybe❞ he bit his lip, his hips swaying with yours ❝we should run away❞ he chuckled ❝I’m such a fool for you

You choked a sob in your lungs, you loved Minseok, but you also knew that at three in the morning who was talking wasn’t the sober Minseok who murmured ‘I love you’ to you in the mornings.

Minseok - ❞ you tried to speak, tried to find where his right mind went that night.

Y/N❞ he muttered between his teeth, his eyes finding yours almost animalistically ❝I can’t lose you, do you hear me?

People seem to think that everyone over analyze things like in this fandom!

Not quite sure what you’re referring to, specifically (maybe Kiwi?), but yeah. I think it’s very easy to forget that the GP doesn’t look at the minutia we do. They don’t follow timelines and they don’t zoom in on pictures and they don’t have 7 years of detailed history of each band member to hold up against a set of lyrics. Most people just listen to a song and like it…or not. 🤷‍♀️

BTS Explain Concepts Behind ‘Love Yourself: Her’ Album: 'This Is the Beginning of Our Chapter Two’

Mere hours before the release of BTS'Love Yourself: Her, the album’s significance wasn’t lost on the group’s leader, Rap Monster.

“It’s really a huge, big step for us,” the 23-year-old rapper/songwriter/producer told Billboard during a phone call from Seoul. “Of course, every member is so excited about the album. We’ve been just practicing until now, day and night, to show these new songs and perfected performances. I left a message on our fan cafe, the other day, after we finished that 'this EP will mark the turning point of BTS’ and even though the wait felt really long with this album – I think it was the huge event, the BBMAs, were in May – so much has happened.”

The wait has been particularly anticipated for for the band’s famously passionate fan base, known as Army, who have been waiting for new tracks from Rap Monster, Jimin, Suga, J-Hope, Jin, V and Jungkook band after voting them Top Social Artist at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards over fellow pop juggernauts Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendes.

Since then, the BTS guys have landed distribution deals with Amazon and U.S.-based The Orchard (“We believe the physical album, still, really counts and it’s really important to connect with our fans around the world,” Rap Monster said) and hung out with worldwide chart-toppers like Major Lazer, Halsey, Charli XCX(“Maybe it’s just my sixth sense, but I think maybe we will be collaborating with even more interesting artists,” he added); even snagging The Chainsmokers to produce a beat for Love Yourself: Her.

One listen to the tightly produced record – which looks likely to make a big splash on the Billboard 200 next week – and the passion is palpable from the intense lead single “DNA,” the societal commentary in “Go Go,” among multiple lyrics and moments that feel ripped from the members’ personal journals. There’s also loads of passion in Rap Monster’s voice talking about these new songs as he sees and envisions the larger picture and message for his band’s latest batch of forward-thinking EDM, hip-hop and pop tracks. Read on for Billboard’s deeper analysis of Love Yourself: Her with Rap Monster.

Let’s start right from the beginning with “Serendipity.” Why was this the right song to choose as the intro and kick off the era?

When I wrote the lyrics, melodies and the first themes of “Serendipity,” I tried to come up with some rare things you find in life, something very special, like the calico, three-striped cat; things that have extraordinary meanings in people’s lives. I wanted to share this moment.

I was reading the lyrics are gender neutral, which I think is really powerful. Was that a conscious decision?

The lyrics were based on rare and special things in life. So, I thought, those feelings transcend genders, cultures and barriers between people.

We always put out the “Intro” just before releasing our single, so the intro is taking the role of telling the concept of this album. But “Serendipity” was actually the right song to share the feelings of our single, “DNA.” The title is about how our DNA is connected in the universe, I think that was the right feel for this album.

Let’s talk about “DNA.” How does this single continue and progress the story of BTS?

When we’re talking about our title tracks, “DNA” is about the expression of a young, passionate love. The lyrics are like, “The two of us our connected fatefully from the start, our DNA was just the one thing.” At the same time, “DNA” is taking BTS to new ground. We tried to apply new grammar and perspectives – if you listen to the song, you’ll understand what I’m trying to say – it’s very different from our previous music, technically and musically. I believe it’s going to be the starting point of a second chapter of our career; the beginning of our Chapter Two.

“Best of Me” is really impressive. It sounds like The Chainsmokers, but it also sounds like BTS. You didn’t lose yourself which isn’t easy when collaborating with new artists. What was that process like?

I love that track! We met them at BBMAs, we were so lucky. Actually, they invited us to their concert just the other day – they had a huge concert in Korea and we sang “Closer” together. For “Best of Me,” they gave us several tracks and samples months ago, we and our producers picked one sample, like, “Okay, this is fit for our next album.” So we worked on it, we sent it to them, we asked them what they think of the track we developed and got their opinions. And we made it! I’m so excited for it. [Laughs]

Your albums always have deeper social and society commentaries. Let’s talk about some of the topics with this release. “Go Go” instantly comes to mind.

“Go Go” is a trendy song, but it’s about how our young generation are living their lives with low expectations and standards so people are upset with reality; they have little hope and there’s so much economic hardship. We wanted to say something about it and emphasize to the world that it’s not their choice, but brutal reality that forces people to live and spend as if there’s no future.

But in Korea, “YOLO” has become a big key word for young people because we don’t have money and it’s really hard to get a chance to earn a lot of money. I think society has a lot of problems for young people. Young people spend their money on claw crane machines at arcades and they spend like $30 on trying to win these dolls. And then it’s like, “Oh! I spent all my money…shit. But I don’t regret.” That’s the biggest luxury for Korea’s young people: collecting accessories, cosmetics, that’s what they think is a luxury. It’s “YOLO” because it’s like, “I’m gonna buy all this! I’m gonna buy all this food and I’m going to eat it! I’m going to do it!” I think it’s sad because it’s all we can. “Go Go” is just saying, “Okay, just do it, we won’t regret it. Just spend several bucks on the machine and eat the food!” But at the same time, the song is very easily to sing along to so I think many people will like that song, especially if they find the deeper meaning.

Of course, I have to ask about making a skit interlude out of your BBMAs acceptance speech.

You need to hear “Mic Drop” because the skit was my speech at BBMAs –  because that was a big moment for our history – and then we put “Mic Drop” next to that because it’s like a flex – like, “Okay, we’re done. We don’t need to give a shit about anything.” That was the right skit and follow-up song for this album.

The last song, “Outro: Her” really spoke to me. It almost reads like a diary.

Ha! [Laughs]

After talking with you, it feels like it recaps the whole album and is really introspective.

I think that was the fastest work I did for this album. I wrote the verse in 20 minutes; it just came, very truthfully, from the bottom of my heart. I thought it was the right outro for this album because it is really a range of emotions – I’m saying I met this person that I really love, this person is the love of my life right now, I’m saying that I was confused and I was looking for love and this world is complex. But I think it’s you so, “I call you 'her,’ 'cause you’re my tear.” “I think you’re the start and the end of me.” That’s what I’m saying: You’re my wonder, but you’re also my answers. You’re my “her,” but you’re still the “tear.”

The hook is saying that love is not all about the happiness, it’s just not just about the joy, it’s not just about delight. If you want to love a person, you should know that there are tears and there can even be hatred inside of it. I think a love really includes all of that. That’s what I was trying to say. It’s complex.

And if fans are so lucky to own the physical album, they’ll hear two hidden tracks at the very. Why keep them secretive?

I think they’re hidden because you have to be a real fan of BTS to understand them. Otherwise, you won’t. Otherwise, you’d like be, “Why are they feeling so confused about things? They’re good?!? They’re No. 1 somewhere, they have so much stuff, why are they worried?” People always talk about that. But if you are true fan of BTS and you buy the album and you listen to the hidden track – if you are an Army and we spent time together from 2013, 2014 – they could understand. It’s kind of more special, more closer, to our true hearts.

Can we take a minute and talk about how fantastic Harry’s voice sounds on this song?  It’s rich, it’s not strained, his technique is on point for rock.  his falsetto is clear and pure. The beginning in particular is clean and precise.    His belt at the end is open and fully supported.  His breath control is spot on.  And the little details like the way he transitions from chest voice to falsetto in the bridge on “will we ever learn?” is SO SMART.  He’s using such strong dynamics.  He has grown so much and I’m just so incredibly impressed.  And so incredibly proud.
