EXO (Korean: 엑소) is a South Korean boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, Exo-K and Exo-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively.

EXO rose to fame with the release of their first album XOXO (2013), which contained the breakthrough hit “Growl”. XOXO was a critical and commercial success, winning both Disk Daesang at the 28th Golden Disk Awards and Album of the Year at the 15th Mnet Asian Music Awards. It eventually went on to sell over one million copies, putting Exo as the best-selling Korean artist in twelve years and earning them the title of “King of Male Idol Groups” for achieving such a feat as rookies.

This song was released in 2015 as part of their ‘Sing For You – Winter Special’ mini album. Here’s the translation of the lyrics:

If you smile at me like that
(Girl, don’t you know?)
It’s hard for me to not feel anything
I’ve already had several cups of coffee baby
But why do I still feel like I’m in a dream?
If my friend saw me, he would’ve cursed at me
I’m not used to being like this or saying this
But in front of you,
It’s like I was never like that

You’re unfair
Are you being selfish? (stop it)
Your eyes, your nose, your lips
No matter how much I look, will they be pretty?
You’re unfair
Just stop right there
You’re dangerous, dangerous,
Take it slow (Oh my)

If you already know
Please stop playing around (don’t you see)
I’m getting more and more lost in you
But if you play games with me
It’ll be too cruel
I gotta gotta slow down
(Baby baby baby) baby oh

If my friend saw me, he would’ve cursed at me
Seeing me be like this or say this
I know it’s too fast but
But you make me say this

You’re unfair
Are you being selfish? (stop it)
Your eyes, your nose, your lips
No matter how much I look, will they be pretty?
You’re unfair
Just stop right there
You’re dangerous, dangerous,
Take it slow (Oh my)

I ask myself why I’m being like this
But instead of a clear reason
The trembling feelings tell me
Nothing else is important
I’m already calling you again

I know it’s really strange
But don’t say anything and just listen

I know it’s unfair
Am I being selfish? (stop it)
Your eyes, your nose, your lips
I wanna be the only one who looks at you,
(I miss you baby)
I know it’s unfair
I’ll tell you straight up
Any more and it’ll be dangerous,
Dangerous, take it slow
(Dangerous, dangerous baby)
(I’m telling)

Girl, girl, be my love
We drank coffee every day
(My baby yeah)
Girl, girl, be my love
We talked on the phone every night (babe)
Girl, girl, be my love
It’s time that you come to me
Oh baby falling let’s fall in love
(Oh my)
