Celebrity - IU

세상의 모서리
구부정하게 커버린
골칫거리 outsider (ah ah)
걸음걸이, 옷차림
이어폰 너머 playlist
음악까지 다 minor
넌 모르지
떨군 고개 위
환한 빛 조명이
어딜 비추는지
느려도 좋으니
결국 알게 되길
The one and only
You are my celebrity
잊지마 넌 흐린 어둠 사이
왼손으로 그린 별 하나
보이니 그 유일함이 얼마나
아름다운지 말야
You are my celebrity
Celebrity
You are my celebrity
지쳐버린 표정 마치
전원을 꺼놓은 듯이
심장소린 too quiet
네가 가진 반짝거림
상상력, identity
까지 모조리 diet, woo
넌 모르지
아직 못다 핀
널 위해 쓰여진
오래된 사랑시
헤매도 좋으니
웃음 짓게 되길
The one and only
You are my celebrity
잊지마 넌 흐린 어둠 사이
왼손으로 그린 별 하나
보이니 그 유일함이 얼마나
아름다운지 말야
You are my celebrity
발자국마다 이어진 별자리
그 서투른 걸음이 새겨놓은 밑그림
오롯이 너를 만나러 가는 길
그리로 가면 돼 점선을 따라
잊지마 이 오랜 겨울 사이
언 틈으로 피울 꽃 하나
보이니 하루 뒤 봄이 얼마나
아름다울지 말야
You are my celebrity
Celebrity
You are my celebrity
