Singer-songwriter eAeon, member of MoT and Night Off, released a new song today called “Don’t,” featuring BTS‘s RM. They previously worked together on “badbye” for RM’s mixtape Mono.
“Don’t” is the title track off eAeon’s new album Fragile. He has described it as a vulnerable song. Its lyrics signify drifting apart from someone you love. Ahead of the song’s release, he also shared that RM contributed a lot to the track, including the lyrics.
I gave the accompaniment to RM without any instructions or guidance, saying ‘This is your part,’ and he gave me perfect lyrics, melody, and vocal arrangement.
RM never lacks commitment in any project he works on. He’s not BTS’s leader for nothing.
When RM takes part on a song, he contribuintes not only with his voice, but with the comfort he brings through his lyrics. With words that embraces you for what's to come by inspiring you to learn with all you've been through. This song talks about the love for self growth 🤍 pic.twitter.com/JlC5ORtcbj

While we’ve come to expect only great things from RM, we were still amazed by the imagery provoked by both the music video and the lyrics. It’s simply beautiful.

ARMYs have been analyzing the lyrics, revealing the significance of each line. It’s evident that RM puts so much care and thought into his songwriting.
when waves crash they turn white bcse the force of collision breaks apart molecules past the point of refraction so namjoons basically saying even though they’ll inevitably collide he doesnt want to lose each others essence which is extremely pretty

namjoon uses motives of direction and orientation like the moon, the waves, the chimney as his own compass, they're usually there to show him the direction of his love & when they change when the moon distances itself & the waves become clashing & change colour you lose direction

“Don’t” will become known as an iconic song along with RM’s entire discography. He continually proves that he is truly a lyric genius.
i love how namjoons lyrics serve as a reminder that love is universal and so is grief and loss and pain and happiness and it is a wonderful thing for so many of us to understand we are not so different from each other
