동방신기 (Dong Bang Shin Gi, DBSK/G, TVXQ) – Purple Line Lyrics and Translation

dbsk        

Album: T, 3rd album
Release Date: January 23rd, 2008
Thoughts: Nobody truly understands my level of love for this song. Im in the car, going to work; I’m at church, in service; I’m studying and all the while singing along with Mickey as he talks about how much he really wants to touch himself.

Also, what is a purple line?

Lyrics

Now, I see this way
It looks like purple line
Gotta introduce myself

세상을 만질수가 없다면
나에겐 보이지도 않는다면
어떻게 내가 틀렷다는 걸 알 수 있을까
I really want to touch myself
기적만을 바랄 수도 없는 나
그렇게 간절했다면
다시 움직여야돼 right now

Purple Line
Let me set up my world
누구도 걸어보지 못했던 this way
이제는 내 방식
다른 어떤 누구와도
같을 수 없어
나 보고 싶은 건 My Progression
나의 모듣 믿음을 태워도
끝까지 부딪혀서
이겨내는 순간의 Purple Line

시련을 거듭할 수록 내가
아닌 날 경혐할 수 있는 것
이제껏 나를 넘어선 내가 내겐 없었지
거스를 수 없지만
시간은 다시 기회를 주고
언젠가 지첬을 내게
끝이 아니라고 말해줘

Purple Line
Let me set up my world
누구도 걸어보지 못했던 this way
이제는 내 방식
다른 어떤 누구와도
같을 수 없어
나 보고 싶은 건 My Progression
나의 모듣 믿음을 태워도
끝까지 부딪혀서
이겨내는 순간의 Purple Line

내게 있어 소중했던 순간
사진처럼 남겨진 그 영상
영화같은 삶을 사는 내가 되기를
다시 시작됐어 나의 2 막은
어제보다 가치있는
보습으로 태어나

Yo, check it
다시 또 움직여라
또 그리고 생각하라
you must be loving the way
그대의 내면 속의 꿈
너의 정열이 어떻게 모든
things that you do
keep walking, my death
특별한 건 믿지 마
그대만의 멘토는 그대
show you must be tweak

세상은 black and white
거로 다른 믿음가진
South and North like
세상을 믿지마
너와 다른 모습으로
마주보고 있어
나는 다른 길을 가고 싶어
다른 색을 그려보고 싶어
you gotta purple like that
my time is still going on

Purple Line
Let me set up my world
누구도 걸어보지 못했던 this way
이제는 내 방식
다른 어떤 누구와도
같을 수 없어
나 보고 싶은 건 My Progression
나의 모듣 믿음을 태워도
끝까지 부딪혀서
이겨내는 순간의 Purple Line

Purple Line
Let me set up my world
누구도 걸어보지 못했던 this way
이제는 내 방식
다른 어떤 누구와도
같을 수 없어
나 보고 싶은 건 My Progression
나의 모듣 믿음을 태워도
끝까지 부딪혀서
이겨내는 순간의 Purple Line

Translation

Now, I see this way
It looks like purple line
Gotta introduce myself

You say that I can’t touch the world
and that I can’t even sense the truth
then how do I know that my path is twisted?
I really wanna touch (it) myself
but if all I can hope for is a miracle
and I earnestly ask for it
we gotta move it again right now

Purple line
let me set up my world.
Nobody has ever walked on the path this way.
This is my brand new plan
and no matter who comes after
there is no way they can imitate me.
The thing I want to see is my progression,
and even if all my faith goes up in flames
I’m going to fight it to the end,
and at that moment will be the purple line.

As I continuously experience troubles,
I have moments where I am not myself.
I’ve never truly overcome myself.
I know I can’t go in the other direction,
but time gives me more chances
and whenever I become tired
it lets me know that this is not the end.

Purple line
let me set up my world.
Nobody has ever walked on the path this way.
This is my brand new plan
and no matter who comes after
there is no way they can imitate me.
The thing I want to see is my progression,
and even if all my faith goes up in flames
I’m going to fight it to the end,
and at that moment will be the purple line.

The precious moments I spent within,
and images linger as clear a picture,
So that I can live like in the movies.
My 2nd act has begun
I will show myself
with more skill than I did yesterday

Yo, Check it
Hey, you, move again,
and think about it,
you must be loving the way
and the dreams you held within.
What will you do with your enthusiasm?
all the things that you do
keep walking, my death
Don’t trust the fancy things
Only your mentality belongs to you
show you must be tweak

The world is black and white,
with all the different beliefs,
South and north like.
Don’t trust the world,
it is facing you with
a different point of view.
I want to go on a different path
I want to draw with another color
you gotta purple like that
my time is still going on!

Purple line
Let me set up my world.
Nobody has ever walked on the path this way.
This is my brand new plan
and no matter who comes after
there is no way they can imitate me.
The thing I want to see is my progression,
and even if all my faith goes up in flames
I’m going to fight it to the end,
and at that moment will be the purple line.

Purple line
let me set up my world.
Nobody has ever walked on the path this way.
This is my brand new plan
and no matter who comes after
there is no way they can imitate me.
The thing I want to see is my progression,
and even if all my faith goes up in flames
I’m going to fight it to the end,
and at that moment will be the purple line.

  1. 내가 한가지 못하는 말.. says:

    Haha..The “I just wanna touch myself” in the song is a little creepy to be quite honest…

    Like this song but “Rising Sun” is my fav. DBSK song I think.

  2. Seriously, he just wants to touch himself…. Love this song to death. Also, the only thing I’ve ever found on Purple Line as to the definition would be that it is some kind of metro railway….😦 This is not relevant to the song so I feel they must be talking about a different Purple Line….

    It’s like that joke “Purple Feather”… good joke for what it is, but you never find out what the frak a Purple Feather is….

  3. I remembered something from my old history class and searched it on WikiPedia:
    “The purple line was the ceasefire line between Israel and Syria after the 1967 Six Day War.”

    The war was about the borders set between Syria and Israel, and in the song there is mention of “North and South” (Korea, I’m assuming) and things being “black and white”. I think the purple line is just referring to pushing your boundaries and setting your own “purple line” of where you can be, or what you can do. Maybe? Whatever. I guess the world will never know.

  4. Miyuki says:

    The “purple line” is a metaphor for the road/path they’ve been on since debut and how far they’ve gotten since then. I’m not exactly sure as to the reason why they picked purple, but there are many possibilities. Purple is a royal color, and means “precious,” “sacred,” or “majestic.” Also, purple is ChangMin’s favorite color. I think that helped, too.

    In case you were wondering, they spoke of the title and explained it in an interview during promotions of the song.
