Alarm Clock

  • songfacts ®
  • With lyrics by group members Minho and Jonghyun, "Alarm Clock" was released March 21, 2012 on the Sherlock EP, and has a distinct George Michael feel to it.

    The song is about either a Groundhog Day style dream or a nightmare, depending on your mood. Bizarrely and strangely, the nightmare would come true for Jonghyun. After struggling with depression, the man with looks, wealth and millions of adoring fans took his own life on December 18, 2017. >>
