My Favorite Lyrics From My Favorite Artist: Stray Kids Edition
Start writing a post

I believe that music is one of the most powerful things in the world. From the sound to the lyrics, music can convey any emotion and touch someone personally.

Music is also universal. Anybody, anywhere can enjoy and appreciate all types of music. I think sometimes people forget that music has the ability to bring people of every background together, but it is a fact that should be remembered.

For me, lyrics are a huge part of any song because I like to understand what the artist is trying to say through their music and possibly establish a connection between myself and the lyrics.

My favorite artist is a group called Stray Kids. They hold a great amount of significance in my life for a number of reasons, but their lyrics are a huge component of why I love them so much.

Before I jump into my favorite lyrics from them, I think some background on the group would be helpful. If you don't know who Stray Kids are, they are a South Korean boy group that was formed by the leader of the group, Bang Chan, rather than by JYP Entertainment, the company they are managed under.

The members produce and write all of their music, which makes the lyrics even more special to me personally. Their writing/producing sub-unit is called 3RACHA, and they are involved in creating the lyrics for all of the group's songs. I love that they play such a major role in the creative process because it makes their songs even more meaningful.

Even though Stray Kids fall under the K-Pop genre, they have many different sounds in their discography. From fun and playful to deep and serious, they are capable of adapting to various styles of music.

Accompanying their choice of sound comes meaningful lyrics, and listed below are some of my favorites from them. Side note: Their songs are in Korean, so I'm writing the translated English lyrics.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
