Fly to the Sky’s remake of 김동률 (Kim Dong Ryul) – 취중진담 (ChiJoongJinDam/A Drunken Truth) Lyrics and Translation

 

Album: Recollection, Compilation/Remake Album
Release Date: April 15th, 2008

Talk about a textbook example of when the lyrics make the song. I thought the song was average at best (for FTTS), but when I listened to the lyrics…wow

The lyrics are so natural with no forced poetic metaphors nor imagery.

I love old School Korean Ballads!

Lyrics

그래 난 취했는지도 몰라
실수인지도 몰라
아침이면
까마득히 생각이 안 나
불안해할지도 몰라
하지만
꼭 오늘밤엔 해야할 말이 있어
약한 모습 미안해도
술 김에 하는
말이라 생각지는 마

언제나 네앞에 서면
준비했었던 말도
왜 난 반대로 말해놓고
돌아서 후회하는지
이젠 고백할게
처음부터 너를 사랑해 왔다고

이렇게 널 사랑해
어설픈 나의 말이
촌스럽고 못미더워도
그냥 하는 말이 아냐

두 번 다시 이런 일 없을거야
아침이 밝아오면
다시 한 번 널 품에 안고
사랑한다 말할게

자꾸 왜 웃기만 하는거니
농담처럼 들리니
아무말도 하지 않고
어린애 보듯 날 바라보기만 하니

언제나 네앞에서면
준비했었던 말도
왜 난 반대로 말해놓고
돌아서 후회하는지
이젠 고백할게
처음부터 너를 사랑해 왔다고

이렇게 널 사랑해
어설픈 나의말이
촌스럽고 못미더워도
아무에게나 늘 이런 얘기하는
그런 사람은 아냐

너만큼이나 나도 참 어색해
너를 똑바로 쳐다볼 수 없어
자꾸만 아까부터 했던 말
또 해 미안해
하지만 오늘 난 모두 다 말할거야

이렇게 널 사랑해
어설픈 나의 말이
촌스럽고 못미더워도
그냥 하는 말이 아냐

두 번 다시 이런 일 없을거야
아침이 밝아오면
다시 한 번 널 품에 안고
사랑한다 말할게
널 사랑해

Translation

You’re right, I may be drunk
This may be a mistake.
When morning comes, I may act like I don’t remember
And act uncomfortable around you.
But tonight there is something
That I absolutely have to say.
I apologize for my current state,
But please don’t think that I am just saying this because I am drunk.

Whenever I am in front of you
I prepare myself to say this
But I always say the opposite thing,
Turn around and regret it,
But now I will declare to you
That I have loved you from the start.

I love you so much
Even if my sloppy declaration
Seems corny or unbelievable,
It is not something I am just saying.

I’ll probably never do something like this again
But as the night becomes light
I will hold you in my arms once again,
And tell you that I love you

Why are you just smiling?
Do you hear this as a joke?
Why are you not saying a word,
But looking at me as you would a child?

Whenever I am in front of you
I prepare myself to say this
But I always say the opposite thing,
Turn around and regret it,
But now I will declare to you
That I have loved you from the start.

I love you so much
Even if my sloppy declaration
Seems corny or unbelievable
This isn’t something I say to just anyone
I’m not that kind of man.

I feel as awkward as you do
I can’t even look you in the eye.
I am sorry that I keep on saying
The same things I was saying earlier.
But tonight I’ll tell you everything.

I love you so much
Even if my sloppy declaration
Seems corny or unbelievable
It is not something I am just saying

I’ll probably never do something like this again
But as the night becomes light
I will hold you in my arms once again,
And tell you that I love you
I love you

    Thanks so much for English translation, the first time I heard this song was on the drama “On Air” and it was song beautifully by Lee Bum Soo. I think Fly to The Sky also did a nice remake.

  2. Todd says:

    Thank you kindly for the english translation! I still believe the original to be far superior, as much as I do like FTTS I think they went over the top R&B with what was originally a ballad.

  3. Chinchin says:

    ^^ Thanks! That’s a very good translation..love it!!!

  4. Rae says:

    I love this song. He is and will forever remain one of the best
    musicians on this earth. I am one of his fans that will buy his
    albums just because it has his name on it. He has proven (to me
    anyway) that his music is top notch,very enjoyable, sincere, and
    easy listening! He sings with his heart, and I will always be a true fan, waiting for his next CD…..Aloha!!
