Some relationships are hard to define.  Some are hard to watch.  And, in the case of Giriboy, some may not actually exist.   Over the strongly jazz-influenced production, describes a relationship that he is eager to pursue and is willing to put effort into maintaining.  The problem is, by the end of the song, Shin Ji Soo comes in and kinda blows things up.  The visual for the track is fun and full of symbolism about how apart these two really are.

Lyrics:
It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
It’s like I can almost touch your long straight hair
It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
Can’t really take a taxi, can’t really take the bus

It’s awkward between us, like we’ll touch but not
It’s not enough to say we’re something
We don’t meet or text as often
We respect each other’s privacy too much

I act too cool when I see other girls
I keep canceling plans, even on the weekends
I don’t know if I should spend money or not
But I’m gonna get us movie tickets anyway

Do you understand or not?
I can’t figure it out
I’ll just text you for now
Whether or not this works

When we meet, we get coffee and watch movies
We do everything
But you keep changing your mind
Tell me why

It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
It’s like I can almost touch your long straight hair
It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
Can’t really take a taxi, can’t really take the bus

Walking between me and you

Should I go round-trip or just one-way
It’s too ambiguous to be clear
But you get mad when I say we should stop talking

Sleepless nights spent imagining things
Now I don’t even get butterflies so just when I thought things were clear
Your waist looks too sexy for things to end like this
So I go back to thinking dirty thoughts

Should I put my hopes up high or should I just let it go?
I can’t figure it out
I’ll just hold your hand and put my arm around your waist
Is it ok if I do this?

When we meet, you tell me everything
Racy things and stories about your exes
But you keep changing your mind
Tell me why

It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
It’s like I can almost touch your long straight hair
It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
Can’t really take a taxi, can’t really take the bus

Sorry, I just washed up
Will you wait a minute?
It’s really cold today, wanna come inside?

It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
You just texted me, saying you just left
It takes 30 minutes to walk back and forth from me to you
Can’t really put on makeup, can’t really do my hair
