Lyrics

착하게 살고 싶었는데
우리 왜 이렇게 됐을까

사회라는 험난한 도시
발을 들여 논지 얼마 되지않아
난 엘리트 코스라는
고속열차를 탄 채로
거침없이 탄탄대로
걷다가 순리대로
적당한 학벌의 여자
교제 후 약혼에
결혼 준비까지
정신없이 하다보니 역시
내 친구 놈 걱정이

지난날을 돌아보니
벌써 14년이나 흘렀어
그 녀석 중학생부터
공부도 일등에 쌈짱까지
여학생들의
인기도 항상 독차지
그에 반해 난 똑같이
예나 지금이나
어딜 가든 왕따 못난이 속앓이 하는
내 곁을 항상 지켜주던 너
그녀에게 내 자리를 비켜주면서

원망 할 수 있는 권리 조차
박탈 당해 버린 마음
세상의 눈밖에 나 버린 마음
절망 속에서 커져만 갈
꺼질 수가 없는 마음
어떻게 할까

오늘밤만 지나면 넌 그녀의 남자
지난날의 추억은 술로 담자
당장 내가 할 수 있는 거라곤
행복하게 잘 살라는
그 한마디뿐
돌이켜 보면 나는 헛걸음
원하며 구걸하며 헛것을
사고 파는
허풍의 거품
내게 남은 진짜는 오직 너뿐

술과 함께 자꾸 격해지는 감정
머리 속은 멍해진 채 암전
이대로 완전 널 잃어버릴 망정
오늘밤은 내 곁을 떠나지마
너까지 날 괴롭히지마
얼마나 더 마셔야 잊혀질까
내일이면 진짜 나는 없지만
절대 너만은 변하지마

원망 할 수 있는 권리 조차
박탈 당해 버린 마음
세상의 눈밖에 나 버린 마음
절망 속에서 커져만 갈
꺼질 수가 없는 마음
어떻게 할까

Go Go 어떡하죠
(over the rainbow)
Go Go 어디로 가죠
(over the rainbow)
Go Go 어떡하죠
(over the rainbow)
Go Go 어디로 가죠
(over the rainbow)

어느덧 자정을 넘긴 새벽
서로가 서로에게 취해서
너 나 할 꺼 없이
서로가 서로의 따스한 품에 기댔어
어떻게 사랑이라는 게
이리도 간절해 이리도 목을 메
이뤄질 수 없는 사랑에 손을 댄
내게 욕을
해 내 심장을 도려내

마지막일지라도
너를 안고
눈물이 내 말을 대신하고
떨고 있는 너의 손을 잡고
입맞춤에 이 밤의 끝을 잡고

다음 세상엔 더 나은 세상에서
태어나자 난 행복해 (x14)

Translation

I wanted to live a good life
How… did we turn out this way?

This dangerous city called society
Its hasn’t been long since I lifted my feet out
Riding on a bullet train
Called the “elite course”
I was without obstacles on a high road
After walking this road, reasonably
Found a suitable girl of academics
And without thought
After friendship, an engagement, and even getting ready for marriage
Came the worries about my friend

Looking back at days past
It’s already been 14 years
That guy, since middle school
Has been first in class, best at fighting
Always monopolizing
The popularity among female students
Always in that guy’s class, I’ve stayed the same
Either then or today
No matter where I still stay a loner, a coward
You used to always protect me by my side
To that girl you have given my place beside you

The right of resentment
With the feelings that I forfeited and threw away
The feelings I cast out of the world’s view
It is only getting bigger in my heart
A feeling that I can’t turn off
What should I do?

After tonight you are hers
With this drink, let’s capture our past memories
The one thing I can do for you right now
Is say the one phrase
“Be happy.”
Looking back it was unnecessary
Wanting and begging
It was only a phantom of bubbles from the hot air I spoke
The only real thing in my life is you

My emotions become passionate with each drink
It is empty, dark inside my head
Just like this, my goal is to completely forget you
But don’t leave my side tonight
Don’t you torment me too
How much more do I have to drink to forget you?
Tomorrow, the real me will no longer exist
But don’t you ever change

The right of resentment
With the feelings that I forfeited and threw away
The feelings I cast out of the world’s view
It is only getting bigger in my heart
A feeling that I can’t turn off
What should I do?

Go go what should I do?
(Over the rainbow)
Go go where should I go?
(Over the rainbow)
Go go what should I do?
(Over the rainbow)
Go go where should I go?
(Over the rainbow)

Before I know it midnight gives way to the dawn
Becoming drunk on each other
You and I, as if we had nothing else to do
Lean on each other’s warm chest
How can something called love
Be so sincere? Make me so thirsty?
I’m cursed,
I’ve touched a love that can never be
Give me back my heart

Even though this may be the last time
I hold you
And my tears speak my thoughts
I hold your shaking hands
And with a kiss I grab on to the end of tonight

In the next world, let’s be born in a better world
I’m happy (x14)

    Hi there

    Thanks very much for translating it into English! I am now just starting to learn the language! I hope I can at least understand some basics soon.

    You can drop me e-mail or something at ‘Kerry.Chu@GMail.com’ to share any news on Korean music in general, plus anything related to Epik High!
    Tablo’s just released his book ‘Pieces of You’ in both English and Korean! Can’t wait! Getting a tad too excited.. :D :D
