The B-sides don't immediately grab me like day 1 but I feel the mini is overall more cohesive. I like the title as well as Jumping. I want to like 'love is the way' but I need lyrical context for that 'your lips say no but my heart says yes' portion on both ends :/

Yes that line was uncomfortable... I hope the full lyrics translation helps

For real. JUST when I start to groove I hear it and stop. What you doin' SM?!

Hopefully it’s nothing physical but like someone saying “no [I don’t like you]” and the person still likes them anyway because they ~can’t help what their heart feels~

i rly like their voices on and the instrumentation of love is the way but that lyric straight up triggered a panic attack for me..... :/

ok, just saw a lyric video and thankfully the lyrics & context help this a LOT.

The 'my heart says yes but my lips say no' refrain revolves around how they like this guy but can't get that out and instead find themselves pushing him away - the chorus is them saying 'come close! no, don't! look only at me! NO, DON'T!' - so the song seems to be themed as 'I do like you but am too prideful & embarrassed to say so, please let's be patient with each other while I sort out these feelings.
