Joji “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified

September 12, 2019


I know Asians, we love Celine Dion ’cause
it sounds like the power ballads that … you know, it has the same sort of thing going
on. Me being old with a residency in Vegas, that’d
be it. Singing other people’s ballads, you know,
karaoke shit. I was writing it bit by bit, just creating
it. Just what I was feeling on the fly. Sometimes, I’ll have my engineer but other
than that, it’s just me. I do just sit and write by myself and then
go into the booth and try things This person is just waiting to get to the
point where they get to be with this other person that they’re singing about. “I done fighted it all night” so it’s like
I’m fighting it all night, I’m going insane. When you see me out there, you know, lost,
don’t come following me ’cause you’ll be just as lost as me. If you don’t know what you want and that person
doesn’t know what they want then they’ll end up with each and it’ll just be fucked up. This person might have just chosen another
person or another, just anything, you know what I mean. This person’s in distress. A lot of dudes probably … even with a girl
that they don’t even know, they’ll probably mumble to themselves that shit, you know what
I mean. So, it could apply to anybody. You could be looking at a picture of Ariana
Grande dating Pete Davidson and you’re like “Yeah, you should be with him, I can’t compete.” You know what I mean? It’s someone kind of crooning, calling out,
to someone else being, you know, don’t waste my time, be with me. We cut out the beat a lot when the last where
it’s going “dark”, the whole crowd, just the sound wave hits you. And even through the in-ears, you can just
feel it and it’s really impactful. They’re probably just screaming about their
own little things going on and I can’t help but wonder what they’re thinking about. After I said, “Just hear my voice in you.” You’ll probably shut me out too and you’ll
do great but the option’s still there. By this point in the song, the person is just
a little bit on the fence again, just confused. So, he’s like, “Oh, I don’t wanna go home,
though.” I’m quite prude with my lyrics. I wouldn’t say it was a sexual reference,
it was more just like spend time with me for just another night or something. I wish I was cool enough to make sexual references
like that.
