EXO – Moonlight Lyrics

English Translation:

Yeah, stop, stop. Those wings will get wet oh, stop, stop

In the gap between a deepening day you come slowly
The darkness skims by and wakes me up
And across the open window receding away

Have you, you, you lost your way again
The night air is still cold, get up
So, baby, hold on I’m worried of leaving you alone
I leave the road and follow behind you

You shower in the pouring moonlight
I haven’t seen that entrancing expression before
I look at you who’s stopped like a picture and at the end of that gaze

A place where I can’t touch you and can’t even hold you
What’s shining under the surface is not that person
Your sad story that can’t come true
The closer you go, the more you’ll hurt, so
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Like this I’m anxiously calling you
Don’t go babe, those wings will get wet

No matter how much I tell you, you don’t listen
You throw your whole body towards him again
Why do you dream a dangerous dream
(Now stop those tiring [actions]) So that your heart can rest a little
My heart watching you feels as if it’ll rip as well

You shower in the pouring moonlight
I haven’t seen that entrancing expression before
I look at you who’s stopped like a picture and at the end of that gaze

A place where I can’t touch you and can’t even hold you
What’s shining under the surface is not that person
Your sad story that can’t come true
The closer you go, the more you’ll hurt, so
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Like this I’m anxiously calling you
Don’t go babe, those wings will get wet

Like nothing happened you try
Even though you’re smiling towards me
Your slender and pale shoulders shake a little, I’m telling you
It’s okay if you let everything go and rest at my side for just a little while
When the sun rises, follow the place where the moon gets dark, fly away then, yeah

A place where I can’t touch you and we can’t be together
What’s shining under the surface is not that person
Your sad story that can’t come true
The closer you go, the more you’ll hurt, so
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
Like this I’m anxiously calling you
Don’t go babe, those wings will get wet
(Stop) those wings will get wet (stop) those wings will get wet

What can you say about this new song?

  • Aries

    Moonlight struck me as the kind of song you’d sing intimately, and I’d fallen for DO’s beautiful, soulful voice in the medley to thw point where I kept listening and listening to the medley again and again. After listening to the full song, I’m loving it even more T.T I’m a little unsure of that falsetto at the end though; I’m one of those fans who really respect idols who can belt out high notes. Baekhyun has a really husky voice, but after hearing that raw demo of Wolf, and watching him skip the high vocals-it brought me MUCH distress, so don’t beat me up for it-my view would be disappointingly biased.

    Overall, the album is a GEM, showing a sexier side of EXO. And THUNDER omggggg.

  • queenbeecrazy

    i think im odd here but i only hear Baek and D.O here :

    • EXOismine

      you’re right. . .^____^

    • hiii

      because it really is only them singing the song.

  • Nenasanghun

    i love exo so much

  • baekdo

    wew, nice

  • maria

    nice song

  • this is absolutely beautiful… i love this song.

  • Park Ae Ra

    This is my fav song. Even i can’t hear any of Suho’s voice here, but .. the meaning of this song just so deep. And of course D.O and Baek’s voice as good as usual. Luv em. #WeAreOne

  • VIP 88StarLight

    i dont understand meaning of this song help me?

    • Minyoung

      A Korean told me about it. She said , “This song is a story about narcissism. The girl in the song is a female version of Narcissus, and the narrator, EXO, is the nymph, Echo! The translations on this clip might not be enough for you guys because it has to be “The reflection on the surface OF THE WATER is not him(or her. Since Korean is a gender neutral language, it can be both.)”, not “The reflection on the surface is not her.” And also, it should be “The closer YOU get the stronger the pain will get, JUST STOP STOP STOP STOP THAT LOVE”, not “The closer I get the stronger the pain will get, just that love , stop stop stop whatever.” Many of EXO’s songs are based on fairy tales(like Wolf and the Beauty, Peter Pan, Run, Baby Don’t Cry(the narrator is the prince of “Little Mermaid”)) or have lots of metaphors : Black Pearl, Thunder, MAMA, Miracles in December, The Star, Love Love Love.”

      I hope it help you

      • moony

        Thank you very much for the interpretation!

  • bluewayfarers17

    The new album is beautiful and this is by far one of their best songs ever. Baekhyun’s voice is no joke. Urrghh this song. Seriously. ♥

  • misslightvie

    Baekhyun’s powerful voice & D.O’s soft voice ♥ I really love this song..

  • Lynlyn Sumahit

    i like this songs :)) feels me when i’m sad :(((((

  • So this is my point of view, is more like a conversation between exo and their fans specially sasaeng fans

    Yeah,stop, stop. Those wings will get wet oh, stop, stop
    In the gap between a deepening day you come slowly
    The darkness skims by and wakes me up
    And across the open window receding away( EXO is telling that the sasaeng fans need
    to stop in the first line the they will get hurt)

    Have you, you, you lost your way again
    The night air is still cold, get up
    So, baby, hold on I’m worried of leaving you alone( Exo is actually concerned about their fans, sometimes they cross the line, some fans even sleep outside their room or stay until very late at night)

    I leave the road and follow behind you
    You shower in the pouring moonlight
    I haven’t seen that entrancing expression before
    I look at you who’s stopped like a picture and at the end of that gaze(again their fans)

    A place where I can’t touch you and can’t even hold you
    What’s shining under the surface is not that person
    Your sad story that can’t come true
    The closer you go, the more you’ll hurt, so
    Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
    Like this I’m anxiously calling you (Exo is telling that is impossible to their fans to be with one of them yeah is a sad story but don’t you realize we can’t never be with one of them like how many fans we are just in korea? so yeah it’s sad :c some fans get really hurt because they tried to be way too close of the members but they are treated badly for example their manager hitting that girl or the incidents on the airport, we love them I know but is too much love that they can’t even handle it)

    No matter how much I tell you, you don’t listen
    You throw your whole body towards him again
    Why do you dream a dangerous dream
    (Now stop those tiring [actions]) So that your heart can rest a little
    My heart watching you feels as if it’ll rip as well(Exo talks to sasaeng fans but they just DON’T LISTEN, also exo is speaking in third person when they said
    “him”, and again warning about fans sometimes crazy actions just to approach the guys u.u, they feel bad when we get hurt T.T)

    Your slender and pale shoulders shake a little, I’m telling you
    It’s okay if you let everything go and rest at my side for just a little while (It’s ok to be near them but just for a while please don’t spend all of your time
    trying to see them)

    When the sun rises, follow the place where the moon gets dark, fly away then, yeah(some of their fans stay until 2 am outside their dorm they need to rest too please girls)

    IN SUMMARY: (TO THEIR FANS/sasaeng)

    A place where I can’t touch you and we can’t be together
    Your sad story that can’t come true
    The closer you go, the more you’ll hurt, so
    Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
    Just that love stop, stop, stop, stop, yeah
    Like this I’m anxiously calling you
    Don’t go babe, those wings will get wet (Stop)
    those wings will get wet (stop) those wings will get wet

  • sLAY

    First baby dont cry…now i have a new favorite song and that is moonlight…i love baekhyun’s voice when he said” i swear i cannot loving”…at first i dont understand it…but when i search for the lyrics i appriciate baekhyuns part.

    • byunjongin.

      i think like that too❤

  • sehunanoona

    Kyungsoo once again proving that to string ones heart doesn’t always need a high belting note :( his run always is the best dnd this time he sounds serene and hurt :(((

  • Maudy

    Everything about this song gets me…so beautiful <3. Baekhyun's high notes at the end aaahh~ <3.

  • Jessica-May

    When Baekhyun does the high notes, he for some reason reminds me of Rain. Baekhyun and D.O sound beautiful in this song! Officially my favourite~

  • lizzy

    I love kyungsoo oppa’s voice more than baekhyun oppa’s. And love tihs song more than miracles in december.

  • LIYYUTH
