Lyrics

Na na na na na na na na na na na na (eh)
Na na na na na na na na na na

날 부른 네 목소리에 심장이 툭
언제부턴가 따라 해 난 네 말투
다 알아챌 수 있어 네 손 잡으면
네 손 잡으면 you know
어떡해야 너를 버텨낼지 몰라
이런 내 모습에 나도 깜짝 놀라 it’s true
멋대로 자꾸 발이
널 따라서 가는 걸

(매일) 조금씩 쌓여간
(숱한) 너와의 시간 널 향해 멈춘
손끝의 그 떨림을
난 기억해

Stay oh
너와 나 지금 이대로
Baby touch me 널 느낄 수 있어
찰나 같은 순간
그 안에서 더 커져가는
이 느낌은 baby oh
모두 전해져 너에게로

Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na

Feel so good 너의 그 손끝이
날 끌어당긴 부드러운 그 느낌이
알고 있니 그 얼마나 의미가 있는 건지

같은 공간 속에 있는 것만 같아
주윌 둘러보면 모든 게 다 너야 it’s true
스치는 모든 것이
특별해져 너라서

Stay oh (stick around)
너와 나 지금 이대로
Baby touch me 널 느낄 수 있어
찰나 같은 순간
그 안에서 더 커져가는
이 느낌은 baby oh
모두 전해져 너에게로

이렇게 touch me baby (na na na na na na na na na na na na)
(Touch) 이렇게 touch me baby (na na na na na na na na na na na na)
(Touch) 그렇게 touch me (na na na na na na na na na na na)
Oh 모두 전해져 너에게로 (na na na na na na na na na na na na)

기억도 안 나 네가 없던 날이
혼자가 편했던 내 모습이
우릴 이렇게나 원하는 걸 난
Girl 빠져들 것 같은 touch
네 손길에 하나 둘
Oh 모든 게 바뀌는 걸 oh, oh, oh, ohy

(Baby) stay oh
너와 나 지금 이대로
Baby touch me 널 느낄 수 있어
찰나 같은 순간
그 안에서 더 커져가는 (그 안에서 더 커져가는)
이 느낌은 baby oh
모두 전해져 너에게로

(Touch) 이렇게 touch me baby (na na na na na na na na na na na na)
(Touch) 이렇게 touch me baby (na na na na na na na na na na na na)
(Touch) 그렇게 touch me (na na na na na na na na na na na na)
Oh 모두 전해져 너에게로 (na na na na na na na na na na na na)

Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na (모두 전해져 너에게로)
Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na

Full Lyrics

NCT, known for their electric rhythms and dynamic performances, have unleashed a different facet of their artistry with ‘Touch.’ An ebullient anthem of love and connection, the track is a pulsating ode to the tangible expressions that kindle the flames of love in the modern day.

Decrypting the layers of ‘Touch,’ one could easily bypass the glossy surface of an uptempo love song for a deeper exploration into the human need for physical and emotional contact, a pertinent theme in an era where digital interactions often trump face-to-face connections. Let’s peel back the layers on NCT’s touchstone piece.

A Heartbeat Skips in Recognition

At the very heart of ‘Touch’ lies the universal experience of a heart responding to a loved one’s voice. This simple yet profound interaction serves as the cornerstone of the song, highlighting how a single sensory impression like sound can initiate a biological and emotional cascade.

It’s a theme that elaborates on the quintessential human connection, binding two individuals not just on a platonic level, but reaching into their very makeup — the cadence of a partner’s speech patterns, their idiosyncrasies, becoming an intrinsic part of our own existence.

The Chronology of A Touch

Time is an astral player in the narration of ‘Touch.’ The lyrics traverse the gradual build-up of moments shared, where every fleeting second shared accumulates into something that transcends physical presence.

This musical timeline culminates in the inflection point of contact, the touch, transporting the heartbeats into a shared rhythm. The song recognizes this journey as integral to the magic, ensuring that when the touch does happen, it reverberates with the weight of moments led up to it.

Unspoken Dialogue: The Song’s Hidden Meaning

‘Touch’ hints at a philosophical thread that runs deeper than its initial bounce: the silent conversation that happens through physical intimacy. This dialogue, unvoiced but powerful, holds the potential to communicate complex emotions and solidify bonds without a word being spoken.

NCT pleads for intimacy, to be known beyond the confines of language — to be touched and therefore, understood. This existential longing for understanding and acceptance is a fundamental aspect of human nature, which ‘Touch’ encapsulates and expresses with buoyant energy.

The Significance in the Ephemeral

A lingering aspect of the song’s lyrics is the emphasis on the ephemeral nature of touch and how a momentary sensation can carry an immense, lasting impact. The lyrics ponder on the meaning loaded in a simple gesture, amplifying the importance of the transient.

By doing so, ‘Touch’ amplifies the mundane, painting every point of contact — whether a glance or a literal touch — as extraordinary, and in turn, transforming the simple act of touching into a poetic event, a moment worth recognizing and cherishing.

Memorable Lines that Lingeringly Echo

‘네 손길에 하나 둘 Oh 모든 게 바뀌는 걸 oh, oh, oh, oh’ – These lines romantically suggest that a single touch holds the power to metamorphose reality. It is perhaps the locus of the song’s narrative, where the sensory collides with transformative power, encapsulating the zenith of physical connections.

These lyrics invite us to valorize every interaction, to find wonder in the most basic of human necessities. They suggest that touch, far from mundane, is alchemical — it is the means by which we reconfigure our world, one caress at a time.
