Joji - Slow dancing in the dark

[Verse 1]
I don't want a friend (Just one more night)
I want my life in two (My life in two)
Please one more night
Waiting to get there
Waiting for you (Waiting for you)
Just one more night
I'm done fighting all night

[Pre-Chorus 1]
When I'm around slow dancing in the dark
Don't follow me, you'll end up in my arms
You done made up your mind
I don't need no more signs
Can you?
Can you?

Give me reasons we should be complete
You should be with him, I can't compete
You looked at me like I was someone else, oh well
Can't you see? (Can't you see?)
I don't wanna slow dance (I don't wanna slow dance)
In the dark, dark

[Verse 2]
When you gotta run
Just hear my voice in you (My voice in you)
Shutting me out you (Shutting me out)
Doing so great (So great, so great)

On “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK,” Joji continues the lovelorn narrative from his previous single “Yeah Right” over a dark, ambient instrumental. This time around, he uses the metaphor of slow dancing in the dark to characterize a failing relationship—just like a slow dance where you can’t see your partner’s face, his relationship with this person is intimate but ultimately impersonal. Joji first previewed the song on May 12, 2018 at the Blurry Vision Festival. He announced its official release on September 7, along with teaser photos from the music video.
