EXO – Growl Lyrics

English Translation:

Yo, okay

I’m warning you just in case (listen carefully)
It’s dangerous now (so dangerous)
Stop provoking me (there’s going to be trouble)
I don’t even know myself

My breath keeps on stopping
You walk towards me
You smile at me
Maybe you’re attracted to me too

My sights become dark
When you stare at me
The sound of your breathing
You’re the one that makes me crazy

So nobody can look at you (when you smile)
I want to hide you inside my embrace (I’m so serious)
The stares that are after you
Wakes up inside me
There’s a harsh/fierce swirl/storm

A dark shadow has woken up inside of me
Sparks fly in my eyes as I look at you
Everyone step away from her (step away)
It’s going to get fierce from now on
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
If you don’t back away then I don’t care if you get hurt

With agitated stare and cutting tension
I’m searching your surroundings
You just stay still and look at me
I’ll never let you go you’ll see

The stares that are seeking you who’s vividly shining in the blurry space
The sound of the alarm is ringing in me

A dark shadow has woken up inside of me
Sparks fly in my eyes as I look at you
Everyone step away from her (step away)
It’s going to get fierce from now on
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
If you don’t back away then I don’t care if you get hurt

E X O

Just in case another wolf looks at you
Because my girl is too perfect
I hold you softly within me [OR] I embrace you softly
I become violent just for you

Only the strong one gets the beautiful woman
Just go back because there’s no place
You have zero chance
Stop looking you’re going to wear her out
If you desire her you have to win against me first

Let’s erase everyone one by one except us
Paused as if only you and I exist here

A dark shadow has woken up inside of me
Sparks fly in my eyes as I look at you
Everyone step away from her (step away)
It’s going to get fierce from now on
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
If you don’t back away then I don’t care if you get hurt

I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
I’m growling, growling, growling
If you don’t back away then I don’t care if you get hurt

  • melodykpopfan

    misogyn and sexist song, why SM let the boys sing a sick song like this! women are not a price or a peace of meat that guys can “win” when they fight!

    • Hana

      I think you might be taking this the wrong way. The thing is, they’re singing about how they won’t let their woman fall in love with another man and they’ll protect her. Also, they’re kind of saying they will boost up their charms to make sure their woman stays with them because they love her so much.

      • melodykpopfan

        Lol, “They won’t let her fall in love with another man” you say? it’s sexist as hell. Men don’t have the right to decide what a girl wants or feels ! The girl can fall in love with whoever she wants! And the boy has to accept it! Not fight with other guys to “win” her!Plus reread the lyrics girl, it’s all about how the girl doesn’t have any part of the decision, she is the possession of the boy. He fights for the “price”: the girl. The lyrics are gross! So make yourself a service and don’t defend a sexist song just because you like EXO.

        • Quinnton Alexander

          It’s not sexist or misogynist, it is basic laws of nature. A male being fighting for the female being. We all do it, it’s just people do it differently than animals do. And if you paid attention to the lyrics, it’s an obvious tie in to their song, Wolf, which obviously implies the animal tendencies in this song. It’s pretty obvious that you don’t like EXO.

          • Yve汉。

            Oh men!~ Stop that..Don’t mind her ok?

        • Hana

          I like EXO, you don’t, I understand that part. But about the girl having no say in the decision- You also don’t know if she DOES have a say, because this song is from the boy’s point of view. ^.^

        • nene

          i dont know what your problem is… but this song is from a boy’s point of view(hence no mention about the girl’s decision in the lyrics.. i mean.. EXO are boys.. duh..) and the lyrics are showing his love in an animal instinct kinda way since they’re wolves.
          and i totally find this romantic.. a guy who is so deeply in love with me like that is THE BEST.. not a sexist… :/

          • melodykpopfan

            you’re so delusionals, lol. keep telling yourself fairytale.

          • anon

            you’re being so persistent on this song being sexist it’s funny. i see you’re one of the feminist bandwagoning kpop fans lol

        • parkchanyeol_love

          no it isnt about not letting her fall in love with another man.

          idk yah but. to my p.o.v, this guy and girl has already become girlfriend boyfriend. the boyfriend want to protect his girlfriend from other guys who is staring or liking his girlfriend

          just like typical korean dramas, those protective boyfriend type.

        • ???????

          If you dont like exo then shut up your big big mouth

        • Lisa

          This is what get me about feminist. Feminist thinks it’s okay to cheat on their boyfriends and, walk all over them.

      • melodykpopfan

    • EXOtically

      Just keep quiet if you don’t like it. Clearly, you not liking EXO and trying to nitpick does not means others don’t like them.

      • melodykpopfan

        no I like them that’s why I care about them singing better song! You are the one you don’t like them, you just want them to look good and don’t care if the song is sexist or not
        I despise fans like you the most.

        • Miyaneo

          This song just makes sense to Wolf, because the concept of it is that boys are wolves, and the girl is the meal. But yes, it is sexist when heard separately from Wolf. The first time I read the translation I was surprised, but I remembered that it was “Growl”, post-Wolf. I have helped not to get angry: D

        • ulzzangkpop

          I agree with you. People like him/her are the worst. Calling them self a “fan” when they only care about what you get out of the songs. You are saying that because you want EXO to sing for the better and not be like this. He/She does not care.

          • Nagisa Motomiya

            well i think that if you really like exo you should just acept everything they are doing wheather it is the best or not

          • XOXO_forever!!!!

            true!!! your very right!!!!

        • Sheen Ailex F. Sanchez

          shut up melodykpopfan!!!!
          and FYI its “SONGS”
          Wrong grammar -__-

    • parkchanyeol_love

      Hmmm i think. when they mean “fight” it doesnt mean abusive fighting. to me, this song is about a guy who really loves a girl, and is willing to do anything just to get the girl.

    • Sheen Ailex F. Sanchez

      it’s not sexist!!!! you just didnt understand the song very well…Duh!!! use you’re brain what there trying to say is they want to protect there lady from the danger that is comming to them…
      And pls if your just gonna comment mean things then just dont bother commenting..
      cause FYI there are “EXOTICS” here and you could hurt there feelings by just commenting mean things about this song!!!!…

  • diidii

    it means the man wanted make the woman to be his and only his. and any other man want to get close (romantically) better watch.
    simple.

    btw, I LOOOVE EXO..!! <3 <3 <3

    I just don’t get what’s so wrong about the lyrics. :/ Am I the only one who loved the song before knowing the English translation and still love the song after knowing the English translation? If I’m the only one then something’s wrong with me =,=

    wow you totually don’t get what peoples mean when they say that seriously

  • kim

    I would definitely want them to be overly protective of me ,i do not care

  • Simply Lu Han biased:*

    This song is not sexist or whatever,I just wanted to tell you how Exo wants (singular because Exo is one) to shout out what men can do just to make their lady safe and sound.To boys’ point of view,they will do anything for their lady even if it costs their own life. To girls’ point of view,we are not given the chance of making decisions but the truth is,us women agree to the boys,they won’t be fighting till death if you don’t agree with them,remember that you will make decisions to the both of you because you are the crown of the boys

  • Lulu Zahra

  • Aleandra Roberto

    exo exo exo luv u!!

  • Excuse Me

    I love this song. Although I wish I never looked at the people’s comments who took this song’s lyrics way too deeply. Do you really think that’s how they’ll treat their girlfriends anyway? How disappointing to hear that some EXOtics have really low expectations . . .

  • Kris is mine

    saranghae EXO!!!!!

    specially KRIS… <3

  • Baekhyun’sGirl

    I’m pretty sure the guys aren’t talking to their women when they say “I don’t care if I hurt you”. They’re saying it to the other guys who threaten to take their women FROM THEM. Duh lol Can’t you tell from watching their interviews that they’re NOT assholes? Use ur brains, people.

  • Shewolf

    Wow what is with the comments?? How is this song sexist?
    I’m pretty sure if I had a boyfriend I wouldn’t want him to fall in love with someone else either o.O

  • Lilly Jay

    Okay guys, stop overreacting, A Korean to English translation is never gonna sound perfect or be to the exact meaning the song meant. I have a different translation which I am gonna post, and it shows that the boy is telling other guys that he loves the girl and won’t let them hurt of steal her off him. I don’t think the song is sexist just the meaning of the song was lost during translation.

    Here’s another Translation:
    Now if you don’t know what I’m gonna say
    You’re in danger babe
    Stop trying to get so close to me
    Or you’ll get scared of what you see

    My heart doesn’t wanna beat,you’re slowly walking towards me
    You have that smile on your face, are you attracted to me as well?
    My eyes get blurry cloudy when those piercing eyes just stare at me~
    The sound of you breathing gets closer
    You make me spin, you make me go crazy yeah~

    I wanna hold you in my arms so that you never will be harmed
    All of the golden eyes just stared at you and it makes me scared

    chorus

    I’m in the dark side
    I’ll make you run and hide
    Won’t let you have her
    I’ll save him with all my might
    Those wolves who try to steal her heart
    I will shoot
    Cause I’m getting scary and I will soon
    ((I will growl)*3 yeah )*3
    If you don’t get away from her then you will get hurt

    My eyes get sharper the tension could kill someone
    If I hug you right now my heart will pound loud baby huh~
    Just stay the way that you are now
    Just look at me not around
    I won’t ever let you go just watch me baby~

    In this foggy misty place
    They shine so clearly, brightly
    The eyes that want you they shine so clearly it scares me
    Chorus

    I’m in the dark side
    I’ll make you run and hide
    Won’t let you have her
    I’ll save her with all my might
    Those wolves who try to steal her heart
    I will shoot
    Cause I’m getting scary and I will soon
    ((I will growl)*3 yeah )*3
    If you don’t get away from her then you will get hurt

    Lets get rid of everyone else, everyone but us~
    So that its only me and you here, here in this big world~
    chorus

    I’m in the dark side
    I’ll make you run and hide
    Won’t let you have her
    I’ll save her with all my might
    Those wolves who try to steal her heart
    I will shoot
    Cause I’m getting scary and I will soon
    ((I will growl)*3 yeah )*3
    If you don’t get away from her then you will get hurt

    ((I will growl)*3 yeah )*3
    If you don’t get away from her then you will get hurt

    people if you can’t even understand the song properly then don’t make assumptions that the song is abbusive and sexist please coz that just makes u look stupid as hell :) thanks

    love exo :)

    • onomono

      Reading the lyrics sounds like a overprotective boyfriend who gets abusive if the girlfriend does something that he doesn’t like. Someone who dislikes it when other guys look at her. It even implies that she can never leave the relationship. Getting violently jealous and being overprotective doesn’t seem like a very healthy relationship.

      • ohsososhified

        It’s not supposed to be like that. It’s a continuation of Wolf; they lyrics are playing with the possessive qualities that a Wolf has. I’m no saying it’s a healthy relationship either, but it’s that kind of meaning ahah. It’s more so uncontrollable desire and possessiveness between a “wolf” or a “beast” and a human. Think Beauty and the Beast.

        • Elina Kang

          … I don’t really understand completely but I’m thankful to you because you actually know what your talking about. But … Are you sure it’s a continuation of wolf?

      • Elina Kang

        Sigh~~~ Why don’t you understand if you don’t know what your talking about, just BE QUIET.

    I love you EXO!

    Seriously, this song isn’t about abusing his girlfriend. From what I read, it’s about being fierce and feisty to protect the girlfriend instead of abusing. He is just being over protective over her, he’ll get mad when someone looks, talks or even touch her. And when boys are mad, they growl. So that’s pretty much it.

      Finally someone who is smart enough to understand the lyrics. Thank you. I was getting really sick of stupid people misunderstanding it. Once again thank you.

    As much as I like this song, it IS sexist and I honestly don’t care if you’re gonna defend it. Why do we glamorize possessive relationships? It’s not cute, it’s not funny and it definitely isn’t as “amazing” as many fans make it out to be. And for anyone who doesn’t think it’s possessive, do the lines “no one can look at you” or “I’m searching your surroundings, You just stay still and look at me, I’ll never let you go you’ll see” ring a bell? This song is all about controlling the girl and manipulating her into following his orders (“don’t talk to anyone else, you belong to me, you better look at me, otherwise (you’ll probably get hurt))”) because he can’t control himself which which is fucked up. So to sum it up, this song is about some crazed dude who is incapable of controlling himself around the woman he loves and is frustrated over the fact that she interacts with other people, presumably men, WHICH IS PERFECTLY OKAY, relationship or not, so he takes to manipulate her by going on about how much he can’t control himself and justifying it by practically saying, “if I end up beating anyone up because you talked to them, it’ll be your/their fault, not mine”, to get her to do as he says, and only listen to HIM. That’s. Fucked. Up. And, “only the strong one gets the beautiful woman”?? The hell is that supposed to mean? Women only go for strong, masculine men? Beautiful women are automatically attracted to strong men? That’s bullshit. And for everyone who’s saying “but I’d also want my man to protect me in a relationship”, THiS IS WHAT YOU WANT??? You want your boyfriend to cut out all your interactions with other people because he doesn’t trust you? I’d dump that dude immediately. And no, in this song, the guy MOST DEFINITELY isn’t in a relationship with the girl. The line at the beginning, “maybe you’re attracted to me too”, says it all. He’s in love with her and he’s getting sent mixed signals from her which he immediately takes as her being in love with him too so he starts with the possessive shit already. Like…there’s so many things wrong with this song. The only reason it isn’t being looked over is because it’s by EXO. In reality, this message (over-possessiveness and emotional manipulation) is hidden in majority of pop songs that usually go unnoticed due to who they’re being sung by and, I hate to admit it, because of how the artist looks.

    That’s it for me. And just another thing for these douchebags: If you really love a woman, you’d trust her enough to freaking interact with other people. If your crush interacting with other men that aren’t you is enough to frustrate you to such an extent, I don’t think you should even be in a relationship at all.

    I wish this whole “strong men” and “submissive woman” trend would stop already because it’s annoying and sexist af.

      I agree with you!
      BUT.
      I just take this song for what it is, a song.
      And a damn good one at that.
      I’ve learned to not take song lyrics too seriously unless the artist is actually trying to get a message across.

      This song is not sexist. The lyrics may glorifies abusive relationships. They probably didn’t mean too but it isn’t sexist. Women can be possessive, manipulative, and abusive too.
      Here is something that feminist seem not to understand. It’s okay to interact with other man but it’s not okay to flirt with other men while you are in a relationship. Unless you are in an open relationship, don’t do it. It’s disrespectful.

    • Puleuleu

      /facepalms/ stopped at when you claimed “you’ll get hurt” was directed at the girl.

      As a feminist I can tell you, you really didn’t bother to read AND understand the actual lyrics but instead chose to be oversensitive and imagine things as they are not smh

      And that Lisa is not better, for she grasped the idea of feminism even less jfc, girls,
      educate yourselves please. There’s a difference between sexism and personal preference. To that it is perfectly normal to experience jealousy, it’s a part of human beings, this doesn’t only include romantic relationships. It doesn’t get normal as soon as one part starts to suffer from the other.

      What you guys did was literally taking
      one/several line/s completely out of context for whatever reason and make up a meaning on it according to YOUR liking, instead considering the lyrics around and the actual meaning. “Never let you go” isn’t ultimately a stalker line, bc would you tell your beloved that you will let them go? It’s not in the sense of locking up someone, it’s as a assurance you want to stay with them, but they didn’t say i will lock you up in my basement and gps track you if u escape–omg i cannot /facepalms/ /sighs/ I feel like you’re inserting 50 shades of grey passages into this when really this is as far away from 50 shades as it can get lord help me i can’t do this much longer for these two are killing me OTL

      The only part that may be controverse is the “Only the strongest can get the beautiful woman” but if we reconsider their concept of wolves and all that shit, that line actually makes sense.

      Because of people like you BOTH, others don’t grasp what actual feminism is. This text would have been a ton longer if I was in the mood to analyze that text so that even YOU get it but why even bother omg

  • bailey

    doesn’t seem to be about sexism or an abusive relationship honestly.. have you guys read all the lyrics? it seems more like she’s his girlfriend and she’s beautiful so other guys are always trying to make a move on her, so the boyfriend gets possessive in those moments.. the only way he’s being possessive is by not letting other guys try to get with his girlfriend, which i think is a nice, protective thing.. anyway this song and Kai own my life and i fricken love them both

  • J

    In my experience, if a man is not protective over you or get jealous when other guys try to get with you… it’s because he just doesn’t care at all.

    EXO didn’t write these lyrics in the first place, but there is nothing wrong with them. Some people need to look up the definition of the words “sexist” and “abusive” before throwing them around so frivolously (I’m guessing they’ll have to look that word up as well).

    EXO-Ls growl in defense of EXO all the time, so we are no different.
