I'm a little behind in posting this for you, but here they are.
These are the lyric videos for ALL the tracks on the 'Can You Feel It' album. So if you're interested to know what the songs are about or who sings which parts, you can now follow along.
The members of HIGHLIGHT told fans during their Debut fan meeting/concert that "It's Still Beautiful" was written about their years as the six-member group BEAST, Hyunseung's departure and the ensuing difficulties and friction with Cube Entertainment. Even though the song and MV on the surface appear to be about a romantic relationship ending, the boys are actually saying that despite how painful it is to leave BEAST/Cube/Hyunseung behind, the memories are still beautiful.
Yoseob wrote "The Beginning" and again on the surface it sounds like it's about the ending of a romantic relationship and subsequent process of moving on, but reading the lyrics, I can't help but think of Hyunseung. I'm not the only one either as the comments on multiple lyric videos for this song share those same sentiments.
Hyunseung and Yoseob were friends before BEAST. Yoseob actually got Hyunseung his audition at Cube after he was let go from YG Entertainment. Hyunseung often comforted sensitive Yoseob during their years as BEAST. These two were good friends for a long time. The details surrounding Hyunseung's departure from BEAST are still not fully clear.
What is known is the relationship between him and the 5 members of Highlight is strained at best, if not non-existant. They don't follow each other on social media anymore. If you look at their IG accounts, almost ALL traces of Hyunseung's existance has been erased from their accounts and vice-versa. You actually have to go way way back, before Hyunseung actually left to find photo evidence of the members together. When the members of Highlight have been asked about Hyunseung, they've responded that they haven't spoken to him or seen him but they hope he is well.
Knowing that Yoseob took Hyunseung's departure particularly hard, part of me really wonders if Yoseob wrote "The Beginning" as a way to deal with his feelings and move on. Perhaps ready to forgive and forget as the song suggests. Yoseob's line "If you're ever curious about me, call me anytime" makes me hopeful the song is about Hyunseung and that all six members of BEAST can work towards reconciliation and one day be friends again.
Both of these songs really hit me in the feels man.
"Can You Feel It" is my favorite song on the album. It makes me feel good. However, knowing that the song is about the five remaining members of BEAST coming back and debuting as Highlight makes the song even better.
They are literally singing about their excitement at coming back to B2UTY, making new music and all of the doubt that plagued them in the past several months since they left Cube and set out on their own. They faced a lot of nay-sayers and criticism for their decision and many thought this was the end of BEAST... and in a sense it was. But it wasn't the end for the quintuplet we love so much. They came back to us and proved they are still a force to be reckoned with.
Yes, HIGHLIGHT, I CAN FEEL IT! I FEEL THE SAME TOO!!!
Anyway, I hope you all are digging the tracks on "Can You Feel It" as much as I am. Which song is your favorite?
