SHINee (샤이니) – Don’t Call Me [Lyrics]

[MV Teaser]

[Official MV]

Welcome back King SHINee!! I think I watch this MV more than 30 times already since it was released – for the song, details, facial expressions, to see their dance, I simply hit play, pause and replay all over again. Vocals, urgh Onew and Key though! I love Onew’s voice in this. His tone is unique to begin with, but in this particular comeback it sounds richer than usual, calmer yet powerful. There’s a saying “aged like fine wine” and I’d like to describe it like that. I never realize that Key is actually a good dancer… he’s truly one of a kind, with that sassy expressions and good vocal, what can’t you do sir? I don’t even have to say anything about Taemin, am uhbsessed with his water-like dance flow (refer 0:33, 2:13) and vocal. he’s the best really ㅠㅠ Also, Minho in red hair?? Excuse me why everytime SM artists sporting red hair, it’s always perfect for them gosh he’s sexc and mad MAD in this MV. That “trash” part at 2:00 onwards is killin’ me! I mean is that the same baby Minho??

You know sometimes we need to listen several times before we can truly feel and like a song but Don’t Call Me is THAT song which I immediately fell in love the first time I hear it. 4 minutes is too short! The lyrics are sassy, makes me thinking if it’s specially dedicated to sasaeng fans lmao stahp callin them, btches. I like the unique “dum dum dum” in the background, I think it sounds like an acapella or something… LOVEEEE the chorus!! The build up from the intro, verse, lead to the chorus, I go from sitting still to unconsciously moving my whole body, riding the rhythms and beats. Same goes to the choreo, at the “don’t call me” parts before the chorus, they went from simple leg movements to fierce and sexy dances, it’s over dude. I got lost in the rhythm.

“sorry the number you have called has been disconnected” – 3:24

and there goes the dramatic piano, and if you notice, their delicate yet tricky movements matched to the piano notes like they are human keys and the shot continues with Taemin blasting his vocal at 3:36, goosebumpssssss and then at 3:47 their dances are like a mixture of ballet and tango? it looks like ice skating too haha pretty impressive though, i’m sure this whole choreography is one of the hardest for them so far. Last but not least, the harmony at the end *crying in korean* did you hear Onew’s voice went down for the harmony? eargasm really.

This comeback hits different cos reasons.. I had mixed feeling watching em and listening to whole tracks like I’m not even a Shawol, guys… if I can feel like this, imagine how a Shawol would feel. ㅠㅠTruthfully I was a bit surprised when I first heard this song cos it’s different than what SHINee usually did. It sounds typically like SM which is fine for me cos I love SM Town and I thought it could pass as EXO or NCT’s. But then again, I’m glad it went to them or else I wouldn’t get to hear this in their colors. 7th full album is born with a great dedication and they are well prepared for this. Who could’ve guess the 3 of them just finished their military service end of last year!? Nobody overshadows the other, balance line distribution, SHINee’s back yall ㅠ

p/s: a special shout out to this shot at 1:10, I love this part dearly, the look in Onew’s eyes, the calms in his voice, he looks like a hyung with weight in his shoulders.. he sounds effortlessly matured here.

So what I’m trying to say is, I love this song and welcome back SHINee 🙂

Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Yeeaow)
Don’t call

깊어진 밤 집요하게
벨이 울려 It’s your calling
고집스럽고 지독하지
그게 바로 너 Still call

너는 쉽게 포기 못해
그 성질 버리지 못해
온종일 내 이름만 서치해
내 흔적들을 찾아 핥아 대

내 아침을 망치곤 해
그 패턴은 뻔해
관심 꺼줄래
I know where you came from

한때는 나의 Shawty
사라져 줄래 저리
Don’t think about calling

넌 못 버티겠지
집착뿐이겠지
나처럼 잘한 사람 없을 거니까
너도 참 피곤했지
전부 꾸며대니
머릿속 꽤나 어지러웠을거야

Don’t call me (미쳤어 넌)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (You don’t know you waste my time)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (느껴봐 넌 최악이야)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

끝났어 너의 Love
Don’t want it now ooh
사랑하면 보내줘
Don’t want it now ooh

계속 말하잖아
Next time은 없어 In your life
네 사랑 난 이제 아냐
지워 날 잊어버려 제발
난 널 몰라
So 내게 전화하지 마

Sick of all your trash
진짜 늦었다니까
널 믿지 않아 You know why
날 속였다는 걸 알아

비극은 왜 사랑의 몫인데?
슬픈 에픽 속
그 끝을 보고 있네
넌 못 버티겠지
집착뿐이겠지
나처럼 잘한
사람 없을 거니 Ya

Don’t call me (미쳤어 넌)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (You don’t know you waste my time)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (느껴봐 넌 최악이야)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

끝났어 너의 Love
Don’t want it now ooh
사랑하면 보내줘
Don’t want it now ooh

계속 말하잖아
Next time은 없어 In your life
네 사랑 난 이제 아냐
지워 날 잊어버려 제발
난 널 몰라
So 내게 전화하지 마

아직 허튼 꿈속에서 포기 못 했니
I’ll never pick up 지워버렸어
I’m gonna save my love
For the next call
(Sorry the number you have called has been disconnected)
Woo

Don’t call me (끝났어 Love)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (I said I don’t want it now)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (사랑했다면 보내줘)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

난 찾을 거야 Love
더 아름다운
지독했던 너와 나
잊을 수 있는

계속 말하잖아
Next time은 없어 In your life
네 사랑 난 이제 아냐
지워 날 잊어버려 제발
난 널 몰라
So 내게 전화하지 마

Don’t call

Deep into the night
My phone is persistently ringing
It’s your calling
It’s stubborn and awful
Yes, it’s you, still call

You won’t give up easily
You can’t get rid of that temper
All day, you search my name
Trying to dig up all traces of me

You ruin my morning
This pattern is obvious
Please mind your own business
I know where you came from

At one point, you were my shawty
But please go away now
Don’t think about calling

You won’t make it
This is just obsession
Because no one treated you better than I did
I’m sure you’re tired too
Tired of making stuff up
I’m sure your head was dizzy

Don’t call me (you’re crazy)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me
(You don’t know you waste my time)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (feel it, you’re the worst)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

It’s over, your love
Don’t want it now ooh
If you love me, let me go
Don’t want it now ooh

I keep telling you
There is no next time in your life
Your love is not me anymore
Erase me, please forget me
I don’t know you
So don’t call me

Sick of all your trash
It’s really too late
I don’t trust you, you know why?
Because I know you lied to me

Why is all love a tragedy?
I’m looking at the end
Of a sad epic
You won’t make it
This is just obsession
Because no one treated you better than I did

Don’t call me (you’re crazy)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me
(You don’t know you waste my time)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (feel it, you’re the worst)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

It’s over, your love
Don’t want it now ooh
If you love me, let me go
Don’t want it now ooh

I keep telling you
There is no next time in your life
Your love is not me anymore
Erase me, please forget me
I don’t know you
So don’t call me

Have you still not given up that useless dream?
I’ll never pick up, I erased you
I’m gonna save my love
For the next call
(Sorry the number you have called
has been disconnected)
Woo

Don’t call me (It’s over, love)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (I said I don’t want it now)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (if you love me, let me go)
Don’t call me
Don’t call me (Wait I hate your call)
Don’t call

I will find love
A more beautiful love
A love that can make me forget
This awful relationship

I keep telling you
There is no next time in your life
Your love is not me anymore
Erase me, please forget me
I don’t know you
So don’t call me
