SHINee – Why So Serious? Lyrics

English Translation:

At dawn right after midnight
Something in the mud opened its eyes
Everyone was scared of me
My arms stretched out forward
I’m the living walking dead
My breath was cold

When breathing became boring
That’s when I found you, so shocked

Why so serious?
Romeo and Juliet
It’s not a, ah, sad love story
Everything will be alright
You’re a love story maniac
Who knows about the “inevitable happy ending”

My heart was covered in dust, but the engine is renewed
Once again, my pale lips become a bright colored rouge
Baby, what do you think of me? Baby, what do you think?
I’m not scary so get in, get in

I can’t even remember when this long darkness began, around 100 years ago?
The day I met you is the beginning, that is what’s more important from now on
“I feel like I’ve seen this kind of zombie movie somewhere?”
Oh no, this is special

Let’s stagger when we walk
That’s our way of love

Why so serious?
Romeo and Juliet
It’s not a, ah, sad love story
Everything will be alright
You’re a love story maniac
Who knows about the “inevitable happy ending”

My heart was covered in dust, but the engine is renewed
Once again, my pale lips become a bright colored rouge
Baby, what do you think of me? Baby, what do you think?
We’re not different, we’re already becoming similar

Once the sun sets, wander the streets with me and flail
It may look like we have no brains but everyone has worries
See? I don’t know about humanism, I’ve just come to love you
My blood boils again, you’re the whole reason for this, c’mon

The next scene’s climax is just beginning
When this music grows louder, we’ll be alive tonight

Why so serious?
Romeo and Juliet
It’s not a, ah, sad love story
Everything will be alright
You’re a love story maniac
Who knows about the “inevitable happy ending”

My heart was covered in dust, but the engine is renewed
Once again, my pale lips become a bright colored rouge
Baby, what do you think of me? Baby, what do you think?
We’re not different, we’re already becoming similar
