“Usually I think of the theme, then melody and then lyrics, but this time I thought of the loneliness in the song first. I thought of the image first this time, and it becomes quite easy to write the lyrics once you have that image in your head,” he shared.
“Forever Only” is the fourth song from “NCT LAB,” a project that showcases “solo songs, self-composed songs, and unit songs” by NCT members. The songs are considered separate from official NCT records. “Forever Only” follows “Child” by Mark, “Age of Light” by Haechan, Mark and Doyoung and “Rain Day,” an English-language single by Taeil, Kun and YangYang.
