Selfless (lyrics)

~BOY MEETS GIRL IN KAWAGOE~

A 1-Year-Anniversary song to remind us of how we met, and the joy we felt at that time...



RAP 1

I still remember the smell of the alcohol and the nabe pot cooking

co-workers screaming my name so loud I got shook and

The head teacher pointing at my seat next to this girl

With a black dress on, white stripe in the middle

Fish out of water, feeling like the monkey in the middle

My Japanese is ok, but can only speak a little

In the moment it’s so hard to come up with answers

But when drinks are involved, conversation calms, mouth’s a dancer


Bless my lucky stars, this girl can speak English well

Short hair, big hips, bright smile

Haven’t seen a beautiful light girl like you in a while or maybe never before, it’s more than your looks

You got a brain that’s outta this world and you don’t even read books

Something unexplainable, the atmosphere was just right

Dreaming about our first ride, wanna bust right

All I know is I just met you so that’s not right

But if I ask her LINE, she’ll say “That’s my line, right?”


Exchange accounts, I shake her father’s hand but but hug her tight

Felt like we knew each other for our whole lives

And if we were only meant to friends, then it’s bummer but whatever

I planned to travel all year but Corona and romance came in the picture, God you’re clever


(He got a sense of humor, don’t he?

I was like “Now this is the most screwed up way of showing me you’re with me, but I’ll take it!”

“I like to stay at home and play games anyways, so I’m not complaining”)







RAP 2

First date was unintentional, A pasta place called DONA

You said you needed an ear, But instead I was a heart donor

Just shopping at CREA mall like I usually do

Your shift ended around 6, so you were finishing soon

I got a text saying “Are you hungry? Let’s get some dinner!”

How could angel ever ask to be with this sinner

(be with descent, uhh/be with this scent, uhhh)

Quit thinking negative, good impressions are always a must

She needs to know that I’m someone she can trust


(So...she goes on to say she got a man in Canada

34 year old, part timer living with his mama, had enough

That’s when the suggestions of comfort flood out but intentions of “Mr. Steal Your Girl

Swirled in my head, so I said)


“Do whatever makes you happy, and you don’t seem to be right now.

If you want a real future with a real man, I’d love to show you how”


(That date lasted three hours, but time flew so fast)


We share the same favorite song from Maroon 5, “Secret”

And my niece and her nephew share the same birthday, peep this

How did God know that I was at my lowest point?

On the verge of jumping a train, exiting out of disjoint (this joint)


We had a group get-together at that same restaurant

After we ate, I confessed she was mine from the start

Even though we were apart, the third strike sealed the deal

January 31st was the night we said what was real


CHORUS

I was so lonely

Until you opened the door and let me come in

Nobody noticed me

But it was meant to be you and me in the end


You taught me to be selfless (selfless)

Because you helped me when I was helpless (helpless)

I've always been by myself

But now I have you so

I promise to selfless too


IT WAS LIKE...


RAP 3

Impulsive kissing, tongue wrestling professionals let’s get into it

Honey tasting like peaches, battered in berries, raw cake mix

(She [honey] tastes like peaches battered in berries, raw cake mix)

(battered = whipped, mixed) (batter = mix [usually for desserts] )

(raw cake = all natural, no plastic)

Can’t wait to bake, But I don’t mind the wait

("the wait" = waiting to have sex)

This goes far beyond the galaxy called a "perfect date"


Pupils wide, two full moons, what just happened?

Is this dream over in a pinch? Psychosis? I’m snapping

We drink for hours, fill our stomachs like balloons on Mario Party

French Vanilla PDA, the factory (fact of “we”) is just getting started

(PDA = Public Display of Affection)


CHORUS

I was so lonely

Until you opened the door and let me in

Nobody noticed me

But it was meant to be you and me in the end


You taught me to be selfless (selfless)

Because you helped me when I was helpless (helpless)

I've always been by myself

But now I have you so

I promise to selfless too
