TWICE – Basics Lyrics

TWICE Basics Lyrics

First time 눈이 마주친 순간
어질어질한 이 공간
꿈속인지 헷갈려 숨이 차올라
조금 더 가까이 다가와 천천히
Can you make me feel like a diamond?

But what the uh
다른 애들과는 달라 Ain’t beggin’ for love
나쁜 건 아니잖아 이게 나라서
어디로 튈지 몰라
Like rainbow bubble gum
그러니 날 꽉 붙잡아둬

알아 나도 Well about myself
쉽지 않단 걸 You might want some help
You wanna try, but not tonight
So I’mma call my friend up, take off my makeup
I’mma sleep good tonight OK

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
다 원해 원해 원해? 서두르지 마 Baby
뻔해 뻔해 말해 뭐해 다 알 텐데
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

타는 듯 뜨거운 사막 위에
예쁘게 피어난 장미 같아
조심스레 내게 다가올 때
나도 모르게 찔러버릴 텐데

긴장이 필요한 순간이야
정신을 놓지 마 지금이야
궁금하잖아 전화기를 들어
질문을 던져 대답해줄게

알아 나도 Well about myself
쉽지 않단 걸 You might want some help
You wanna try, but not tonight
So I’mma call my friend up, take off my makeup
I’mma sleep good tonight OK

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
다 원해 원해 원해? 서두르지 마 Baby
뻔해 뻔해 말해 뭐해 다 알 텐데
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
Slow it down and speed it up like you a spaceship
Baby later 남겨 줄게 my location
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

부족하다고 넌 느끼겠지만
기본에 충실한 태도일 뿐이야
우리 둘 사이 팽팽한 긴장감
놓지 않는 게 더 좋단 걸 알아

I know it feels like you’re paying the price
내 모든 것을 더는 바라지마
So let’s take it back, oh
Let’s take it back

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
다 원해 원해 원해? 서두르지 마 Baby
뻔해 뻔해 말해 뭐해 다 알 텐데
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
Slow it down and speed it up like you a spaceship
Baby later 남겨 줄게 my location
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

TWICE Basics Lyrics English Translation

First time Eye contact
Messy this space
I can’t wait to see if I’m in a dream.
Get a little closer and slow down
Can you make me feel like a diamond?

But what the uh
Ain’t beggin’for love like no other kid.
It’s not bad. This is the country.
I don’t know where it’s going to bounce.
Like rainbow bubble gum
So hold me tight.

I know, I know Well about myself
You might want some help
You wanna try, but not tonight
So I’mma call my friend up, take off my makeup
I’mma sleep good tonight OK

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
You want it all, you want it? Don’t rush Baby
It’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious.
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

Scorching hot over the desert
It’s like a beautiful rose.
When you come to me carefully
I’m gonna stab you without knowing.

It’s a moment of tension.
Don’t let go of your mind. It’s now.
I’m curious. Listen to the phone.
I’ll ask you a question and answer it.

I know, I know Well about myself
You might want some help
You wanna try, but not tonight
So I’mma call my friend up, take off my makeup
I’mma sleep good tonight OK

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
You want it all, you want it? Don’t rush Baby
It’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious.
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
Slow it down and speed it up like you a spaceship
I’ll leave Baby later my location
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

You’ll feel it’s not enough.
It’s just a basic attitude.
The taut tension between the two of us
I know it’s better not to let go.

I know it feels like you’re paying the price
Don’t want anything more of me.
So let’s take it back, oh
Let’s take it back

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
You want it all, you want it? Don’t rush Baby
It’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious, it’s obvious.
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah

I wanna, wanna, wanna take it to the basics
Slow it down and speed it up like you a spaceship
I’ll leave Baby later my location
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah
