This is so not what I was expecting from this collaboration.

With a production that sounds like Sango or SPRKZT jumped on the beat, the chill vibe of this track came out of nowhere.  Based on the fact that she’s joining Unpretty Rapstar II, we really thought that Hyolyn was going to rap, but she does an amazing job singing instead with her bright tone adding light to the dark production.  Zico and Paloalto lay down some pretty strong verses and their flow is a nice match for the beat.  The lyrics trip into the poetic side of writing, but seem to be expressing that they give a darker side of themselves when they perform but they are still good people who experience trials and tribulations.  A solid track and a nice stepdown from summer into fall, this sets a pretty good tone for Q4 this year.

Lyrics:
I’m still dark inside
The dark night exists for me

I think too much, you tell me I shouldn’t
Deep talks are boring, I just need time alone
It’s never wrong to not know
But you’re a con artist if you pretend to know
There’s so many of them but I still have to smile and pretend I don’t know
It breaks apart, my emotions grow dull
Touch me, save me with your breath
I’m hiding in the darkness, the cracks between my heart are getting white
Sometimes, that’s so scary but I’m strong, that’s just how I feel

I’m still dark inside
The dark night exists for me

I’ll stay here forever
Getting stronger by myself

When I feel you
When I touch you
Then I’m one of yours
Oh – Oh – oh oh

You make me stronger
You make me stronger
Your love makes me stronger

(Oooh – wah – I ride, you ride)

I can’t see you in this darkness
Will you take my hand and be with me
I really wanna know
If you want me, tell me outloud

I don’t like bright lights
Because it shows me the reality so clearly
They told me to get brighter
But then they tell me not to do anything that stands out

My life is busy letting off heat
But the scorching sun keeps beating down
I found some shade and let out a sigh
in hale exhale

for example, just like how you fall asleep when the lights are off
Just like how I give live performances only when I’m wearing black
Just like how you close your eyes when bad things happen
We unconsciously depend on darkness

When the sun sets, it’s morning for me
The dark night exists for me
Because after the short darkness
The curtains open for a new act

You make me stronger
You make me stronger
Your love makes me stronger

(Oooh – wah – I ride, you ride)
