Musical Monday – It’s Complicated.

I wasn’t planning on being back so quickly. I’m currently working two jobs, and ironically SaraG is my boss for the role I’m temporarily filling. When she texted on Thursday and asked if I wanted to write Monday’s post on B.I’s new release, I really had no choice but to say of course boss, would love to. And don’t believe her when she says she gave me an out…who could say no to boss SaraG?

I’ve thought a lot about what to say here and not sure anything can truly capture all the feelings. Returning after an almost two-year absence B.I has given us a breathtaking, heartbreaking, beautiful song wrapped in a breathtaking, heartbreaking, beautiful music video. For context and history, I’ll point you to the post from two weeks ago. What I’ll say here is it’s all so so complicated and I’m so happy to have him back, even if it will never be as 7iKON. The lyrics say it all so much better than I ever can, so I’ll let B.I’s words express everything that needs to be said. Welcome back Hanbin, we missed you.

“Having grown up too fast
Our hearts are too fragile
Deadly words like “sacrifice”
We embrace so naturally

What am I here for?
Without a clue
“Let’s just be happy” is all that’s said

Again, facing the night is your heart
I’ll keep it warm with a blanket
Holding back tears at night is your life
I’ll pretend I don’t know

Oh ohoh oh ohoh oh um

My pain that no one knows about becomes nothing
Everyone seems to live like that, with a bruised heart
Making a face that is fine
When do you become grown-up? and what’s next?
Home is usable and comfortable but still so cold
Yeah, when it is all over, the shitty moments may be memories
You never know
Your words today may be your last by tomorrow

What am I here for?
Without a clue
“Let’s just be happy” is all that’s said

Again, facing the night is your heart
I’ll keep it warm with a blanket
Holding back tears at night is your life
I’ll pretend I don’t know

So go ahead and cry”

    I’m not crying you’re…that’s a lie, I’m crying.
