LISTEN: BTS’s V And Rap Monster’s Self-Produced Song “4 O’Clock” Is Literal Poetry

Next up for the 2017 BTS FESTA releases is a song written and produced by BTS members V and Rap Monster themselves!

Titled “4 O’Clock,” the slow ballad features an acoustic-based instrumental, R&B style rap from Rap Monster, and gorgeous vocals from both members. What’s more, the lyrics to the song read like a beautiful, classic poem. Romantic in both senses of the word, the song uses lines like “I call you moonchild,” and “The sound of you singing brings the red morning,” as well as references to nature and light.

Give the track a listen, and check out the breathtaking lyrics right below.

Lyrics:

One day,
I wrote a long, long letter to the moon
It would not be brighter than you
But I lighted a small candle

At a dusky park
A nameless bird that sings
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
You and I are the only ones here
Me and you
Oh you

Following into the deep night
The sound of you singing
Brings the red morning
A step, and another step

The dawn passes
And when that moon falls asleep
The blue shade that stayed with me disappears

Even today, I live moderately
I walk in pace, moderately wearing down
The sun suffocates me
And the world strips me naked
I can’t help it, there’s no other way
I collect myself that’s shattered beneath the moonlight
I call you moonchild
We are the children of the moon
I breathe the cold night air
Yes we’re livin and dyin
at the same time
But you can open your eyes for now
Just like that any movie, like the line (from the movie)
The entire world is blue inside the moonlight

At a dusky park
A nameless bird that sings
Where are you
Oh you

Why are you crying
You and I are the only ones here
Me and you
Oh you

Following into the deep night
The sound of you singing
Brings the red morning
A step, and another step

The dawn passes
And when that moon falls asleep
The blue shade that stayed with me disappears
Following into the deep night
The sound of you singing
Brings the red morning
A step, and another step

The dawn passes
And when that moon falls asleep
The blue shade that stayed with me disappears

Did this song bring tears to your eyes like it did for us? Let us know!
