Here, Joji uses the metaphor of slow dancing in the dark to allude to a relationship falling apart. Like a slow dance where you can't see your partner's face, the relationship may still be intimate but has become impersonal.When I'm around slow dancing in the dark
Don't follow me, you'll end up in my arms
You done made up your mind
I don't need no more signs
Joji explained to Genius
what he is saying with this lyric is "When you see me out there lost, don't come following me 'cause you'll be just as lost as me."
