HANGUL

I can’t believe
기다렸던 이런 느낌
나만 듣고 싶은 그녀는 나의 멜로디
하루 종일 go on and on and oh
떠나지 않게 그녈 내 곁에

Don’t mess up my tempo
들어봐 이건 충분히
I said don’t mess up my tempo
그녀의 맘을 훔칠 beat
어디에도 없을 리듬에 맞춰 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
멈출 수 없는 이끌림

매혹적인 넌 lovely
틈 없이 좁혀진 거리
불규칙해지는 heartbeat
잠시 눈을 감아 trust me

밖으로 나갈 채비 미리 해둬 Are you ready?
오늘은 내가 캐리 도시 나 사이의 케미
이미 나와 놓곤 뭐가 창피해 ma boo
어정쩡 어버버 할 필요 없다고
챙길 건 없으니 손잡아 my lady
가는 길마다 레드 카펫 또 런웨이인걸
발걸음이 남달라
지금 이 속도 맞춰보자 tempo

Baby girl 아침을 설레게 하는 모닝콜
매일 봐도 보고 싶은 맘인걸
지금부터 나와 Let’s get down
모든 것이 완벽하게 좋아
So don’t slow it up for me

Don’t mess up my tempo
들어봐 이건 충분히
I said don’t mess up my tempo
그녀의 맘을 훔칠 beat
어디에도 없을 리듬에 맞춰 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
멈출 수 없는 이끌림

주윌 둘러봐 lovely
틈 없이 좁혀진 거리
너에게 맞춰진 heartbeat
하고 싶은 대로 teach me

여긴 내 구역 Don’t test me
혼자 있기 어색하다면 보내줘 message
Now you got me flexin’
주윌 둘러봐
널 보는 들러리들 속 위대한 개츠비 (Hold on wow)
I’m doing alright baby girl you don’t know
치워 네 머리 위에 물음표
내 사전에 없는 L.I.E
너는 이미 자연스럽게 맞추고 있어 내 tempo

Baby girl 내 어깨에 살짝 기댄 그대의
아련한 향기가 다시 내 맘에
소용돌이치며 몰아친다
이대로 난 영원하고 싶다
So don’t mess up my tempo baby
Don’t slow it up for me

Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo

내 눈을 바라보고 말해
나의 귓가에만 닿게
나만 사랑한다 말해
나밖에 없다고 말해
더 이상 흔들리지 않게
절대 널 뺏기지 않게
누구도 건들 수 없게
내 곁에 너를 지킬게

내 마음이 느껴지니
나를 감싸 안은 유일한 나만의 savior
모두 그런 널 바라보게 돼

I can’t believe
기다렸던 이런 느낌
나만 듣고 싶은 그녀는 나의 멜로디
하루 종일 go on and on and oh
떠나지 않게 그녈 내 곁에

Don’t mess up my tempo
따라와 이건 충분히
I said don’t mess up my tempo
완전히 다른 색의 beat
어디에도 없을 이런 완벽한 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
멈출 수 없는 이끌림

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

I can’t believe
I’ve been waiting for this feeling
I want to be the only one hearing her, she’s my melody
All day, go on and on and oh
So she won’t leave, I want her by my side

Don’t mess up my tempo
Listen, this will be enough
I said don’t mess up my tempo
This beat will steal her heart
It’s one of a kind
To the rhythm 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
Can’t stop this attraction

You’re so charming, you’re lovely
There’s nothing separating us
Heart beat becoming unstable
Just close your eyes trust me

Get ready ahead of time to go out, are you ready?
I’m going to rule the city today and bring the sparks
You’re already out, why are you so shy, ma boo?
Don’t stutter, you don’t have to feel awkward
You don’t have to bring anything, just hold my hand my lady
Every road we walk on is a red carpet and a runway
The way you walk is so unique
Match the speed now, tempo

Baby girl, your wake-up call in the morning makes me flutter
I’m missing you even though I see you every day
From right now, you and me, let’s get down
Everything is perfect, I like it
So don’t slow it up for me

Don’t mess up my tempo
Listen, this will be enough
I said don’t mess up my tempo
This beat will steal her heart
It’s one of a kind
To this rhythm 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
Can’t stop this attraction

Look around lovely
There’s nothing separating us
It’s fixed on you, this heart beat
Do as you want, teach me

This is my area don’t test me
Send me a message if you don’t want to be by yourself
now you got me flexin’
Look around
The Great Gatsby in that crew that’s watching you (Hold on wow)
I’m doing alright baby girl you don’t know
Get rid of that question mark above your head
I don’t use the word L.I.E
You’re already naturally following my tempo

Baby girl, leaning on my shoulder
Your scent is inside my heart
Striking like a wave
I want to be forever like this
So don’t mess up my tempo baby
Don’t slow it up for me!

Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo
Don’t mess up my tempo

Look into my eyes and tell me
So that I’m the only one that can hear it
Say that you love only me
Say that I’m the only one
So that you won’t falter anymore
So that no one can take you away
So that no one will be able to touch you
I will protect you from beside you

Can you feel my heart?
Surrounding and hugging me, you’re my one and only savior
Everyone’s looking at you

I can’t believe
I’ve been waiting for this feeling
I want to be the only one hearing her, she’s my melody
All day go on and on and oh
So that she can’t leave, keep her by my side

Don’t mess up my tempo
Follow me, this is enough
I said don’t mess up my tempo
Totally different kind of beat
You can’t find it elsewhere
This is perfect 1, 2, 3
Don’t mess up my tempo
Can’t stop this attraction
