Jive Monkey Playlist: 6/24/16

In honor of KCON NY this weekend, this week’s playlist is jammed packed with some of my favorite songs from some of the artists that are performing this weekend.  For those that have your tickets ready, I’m sure you’re ready to scream for your favorite idols and here are some tracks to get you in the mood.  These songs may not necessarily be tracks that they’ll end up singing at KCON and they might be some of the artists’ lesser known tracks but they are songs that I enjoy listening to and hope that it makes its way to your own playlists.

Okay, “괜찮아요 (It’s Okay)” is one of BtoB’s title tracks and there’s a good chance that they’ll sing it this weekend but it’s one that I didn’t get to previously feature.  However, it’s not only a catchy song to listen to but I remember that every single time it came up on my playlist, it would just catch me off guard because of the harmony of the group.  With this song, they show that they are not just one of the many K-Pop idol boy groups but through the earnestness in their voices, they are able to showcase their talent as singers.

비투비(BTOB) – 괜찮아요

괜찮아요

어깨가 무겁나요
무거운 짐을 내려놓기가 참 쉽진 않죠
누군가 말했죠
내 꿈이 멀게만 느껴질 땐 잠시 쉬다 가세요

매일 같은 일상에 힘든가요
그건 누구를 위한 거죠
결국 또 쓰러질 텐데
힘들어 혼자라 느껴질 때
이 노랠 들어봐요

기대해 즐겨 듣던 그 멜로디 Woo woo
라디오에 흘러나올 그 목소리 Oh

내가 할 수 있는 건 노래 가사뿐이죠
힘들어도 괜찮아 괜찮아 괜찮아 잘될 거예요
I believe in you

3년째지
어느 곳도 날 원하지 않는 삶이
이제 군대라도 가야 하나 싶어서
부모님께 말씀드렸더니 딱 한마디 했어 어휴
그래서 말 못했지 하던 알바도 잘렸다고
Well, 어제는 제대 직전인 친구가
휴가 나왔어
하는 말이 무섭대
대학서 배운 건 다 까먹었어
실업자 100만 시대
그런 건 잘 모르겠고
그 숫자가 차라리 통장 잔고였음 좋겠어

시끄러운 알람이 새벽부터 날 계속 재촉해
쫓기듯 나선 집 밖은
틈 없는 벼랑 끝 같아
뭘 하고 있지 아니 뭘 해야 하지
답이 없는 메아리
난 왜 밖에서 치이고
엄한 곳에다 화풀이해
좌표 없는 항해
위 방황하는 작은 종이배
억지로 눈물을 삼켜
어느새 한숨은 습관이 돼
알아 나도 바보 같은 거
남 앞에선 괜찮은 척
티 없이 해맑던 예전의 넌 지금 어딨니

기대해 즐겨 듣던 그 멜로디 Woo woo
라디오에 흘러나올 그 목소리 Oh

내가 할 수 있는 건 노래 가사뿐이죠
힘들어도 괜찮아 괜찮아 괜찮아 잘 될 거예요
I believe in you

사랑하는 가족들 가족 같은 친구들
얼굴 못 본 지가 밥 한번 먹자 한 뒤로
한 번쯤 여유를 가져도 나쁘진 않을 텐데
지금 내가 외롭진 않을 텐데

노랜 다 끝나가지만
아직 다 못한 말이 많아
모두가 나와 같은 맘이겠죠

기대해 즐겨 듣던 그 멜로디
멜로디 멜로디
라디오에 흘러나올 그 목소리 Oh

내가 할 수 있는 건 노래 가사뿐이죠
힘들어도 괜찮아 괜찮아 괜찮아 잘 될 거예요
I believe in you

It’s Okay

My shoulders are heavy
The heavy burden is not that easy to unload
Someone once said
If I feel my dreams feel far off, just rest here for a little while

Is the everyday routine difficult?
Who does that benefit?
In the end, you’re just gonna collapse
If you feel that you’re alone because things are hard
Listen to this song

Anticipating, that melody you enjoy, Woo woo
That voice that spills from the radio, Oh

The thing that I can do, are only the song’s lyrics
Even if it’s difficult, it’s okay, okay, okay, all will be well
I believe in you

It’s been 3 years,
the life where there’s no place that wants me
I wonder if I need to go to the army now
After telling my parents, they told me just one thing
That’s why I couldn’t tell them, that I lost my part-time job
Well yesterday, my friend who is about to be discharged
Came out on break
He tells me it’s scary,
he’s forgotten everything he learned in college
An era where there are a million unemployed people
Don’t really know about that
Rather, I wish that number was my bank balance

The noisy alarm from early morning keeps rushing me
Feels like I’m being chased, going outside my house
It’s like an unyielding cliff’s edge
What am I doing? No, what do I need to do?
It’s an inexplicable echo
Outside, why am I being knocked down and
venting my anger to an intense place
A voyage without coordinates
Wandering above a small paper ship
I forcefully swallow my tears
At some point, sighing becomes a habit
I know, that I’m an idiot
Pretending I’m fine in front of others
The purely happy past, where did you go?

Anticipating, that melody you enjoy, Woo woo
That voice that spills from the radio, Oh

The thing that I can do, are only the song’s lyrics
Even if it’s difficult, it’s okay, okay, okay, all will be well
I believe in you

My loving family, friends that are like family
Been so long, after saying let’s grab a bite
Wouldn’t be bad if I got some free time for once
Then I wouldn’t be so lonely right now

The song is almost over
but there are still a lot of things I haven’t said
Everyone probably feels the same way I do, right?

Anticipating, that melody you enjoy
Melody, melody
That voice that spills from the radio, Oh

The thing that I can do, are only the song’s lyrics
Even if it’s difficult, it’s okay, okay, okay, all will be well
I believe in you

“너 하나만을 위해 (Only For You)” is technically not Dynamic Duo song per se.  It’s a song that they remade for Two Yoo Sugar Man Project.  The song was originally sung by Goo Bon Seung, a heartthrob singer and actor from the mid-90’s.  He was at the top of his career then and I feel like he suddenly fell off the face of the earth.  It’s not like he was involved in a scandal but rather he just decided to take some time off and then enjoyed having that time off.  He never really left the entertainment world as he has done a project here and there every couple of years but it was weird to see someone at the height of his career suddenly disappear of the Korean entertainment landscape.  One of his close buddies is Jang Dong Gun so I can only imagine where his career could have taken him if he stayed but then I kind of like that he gave it all up to live a normal life.

However, as for Dynamic Duo, the reason why I love his song and wanted to feature this song was because this cover shows the great ear they have for music.  The song feels so outdated with its overly dramatic intro and synthesized hip hop melody.  Even the music video makes me laugh and suddenly, I find it hard to believe that the video made me swoon back then.  And yet, Dynamic Duo (along with composer Philtre) is able to turn it into a song that sounds fresh, funky and most importantly, relatable to the current generation.  Despite being a hip hop duo, the measure of a good artist is an artist who can think outside of the box and adapt it to their own style.  Dynamic Duo does just that.

다이나믹 듀오(Dynamic Duo) – 너 하나만을 위해

*미련한 곰이래 – It literally translates as a foolish or stupid bear as the behavior of bears make them appear as if they are not smart.

**내가 눈 감는 날 올 때까지 – This connotation is in regards to a more permanent action as until the day I close my eyes and not open them again (as in death).

너 하나만을 위해

지금까지 나 살아온 동안에
내가 나의 전부였어
세상 가운데 내가 서 있다고
느끼며 살아왔었던 거야
지금 나의 모습은 너 하나를 위해
예전의 내 모습은 부서져 버렸어
들어갈 준비가 된 거야 지금
나는 너의 맘속으로

어디에서 내가 있어도
어디에서 무엇을 해도
나는 너를 위해서 사는 거야
너의 마음 안에서

나 너 하나만을 위해
나 너 하나만을 위해

다들 미친놈이래 나 보고
미련한 곰이래* 너 보고
우린 안 고민해 주위 시선 아직 차가워도
서로를 보는 눈은 봄이네
수군대고 더러운 소리 해도
밑거름돼 사랑은 꽃피네
일이 꼬여 온 세상을 속여야 할 때도
우린 서로에게 솔직해
니가 요리 해주는 내 시간은 너무 맛있어
넌 뜨거운 내 열정을 담아주는 용기
절대 못 버려 평생 다시 써
계속 같이 있어
넌 내가 모든 걸 포기하고
지킬 만큼 내게 가치 있어
이제 우리라는 밭이 있어
행복이란 씨 뿌리고
머리 파뿌리 되도록 같이 일궈

어디에서 내가 있어도
어디에서 무엇을 해도
나는 너를 위해서 사는 거야
너의 마음 안에서

난 너라는 하늘 아래서
살아 숨 쉬어 너의 마음 안에서
계산 안 해 머리로
모든 걸 버리고 우린 서로만을 바랬어

내가 눈 감는 날 올 때까지**
너의 사랑 지키고 싶어
너의 마음 안에서 살고 싶어
너 하나만을 위해

어디에서 내가 있어도
어디에서 무엇을 해도
나는 너를 위해서 사는 거야
너의 마음 안에서

어디에서 내가 있어도
어디에서 무엇을 해도
나는 너를 위해서 사는 거야
너의 마음 안에서

나 너 하나만을 위해
나 너 하나만을 위해

Only For You

For the time I’ve been alive until now
I was my everything
I stood at the center of my universe
That’s how I felt and lived my life
But the image of me now is solely for you
My old self has shattered
Now I’m ready to step in
Into your heart

Wherever I am
Whatever I’m doing
I am living for you
In your heart

Only for you, I’m
Only for you, I’m

Everyone looks at me and says I’m crazy
Looking at you, they say you’re a foolish bear*
Don’t worry whether others still give us cold stares
The stares we give each other is Spring-like
Though they gossip and say nasty things
The foundation of love is blossoming
Though we need to trick the world that’s against us
We are honest towards each other
The hours you whip up are so delicious
You gather the courage of my hot passion
Won’t ever throw it away, use it again my whole life
We keep staying together
You, giving up everything I have
As much as I want to protect us, you are worth it
Now there is a field of us
Scattering seeds of happiness
Like we’re forsaking all others, cultivate it

Wherever I am
Whatever I’m doing
I am living for you
In your heart

I, below heavenly skies like you
I live and breathe in your heart
Don’t calculate it in my head
Throw everything away and put my hopes in us

Until the day I close my eyes**
I want to protect my love for you
I want to live in your heart
Only for you

Wherever I am
Whatever I’m doing
I am living for you
In your heart

Wherever I am
Whatever I’m doing
I am living for you
In your heart

Only for you, I’m
Only for you, I’m

Seventeen may be an idol group but they are a unique 13 member boy band.  First, their leader Woozi produces all of their tracks.  The group is split into 3 teams, the Hip-hop Team, Vocal Team and the Performance Team.  “만세 (Hurrah)” is the group’s debut song but I love the Hiphop Team version more than the original track (or even the Performance Team track) for its addicting beat.  It’s only after you hear this song that you understand that the random period in the word is meant to reflect the staccato-esque beat of the song.  It’s important to note that other than the chorus, the lyrics are actually different for this version.

Seventeen – 만.세 (Hiphop Team ver.) (Hur.rah (Hiphop Team ver.))

세븐틴(Seventeen) – 만.세 (Hiphop Team Ver.)

*니가 뜨고= Although it literally translates as “you come up,” the expression is meant to express how someone’s contact information comes up on the phone when a call comes in.

**견우, 직녀and 오작교 = Gyun Woo, Jik Nyeo and Ohjakyo (Bridge) – These 3 references are taken from a Korean fable about Chilseok (7th day of the 7th month on the Lunar calendar).  For more details about the story, go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilseok.

만.세 (Hiphop Team ver.)

Monday
오늘부터 또 다시 달려야 해
이전과 달라
목적지는 뚜렷이
뭐든 허들 넘기 하네
올 한 해를 끝까지 너와 같이
마무리 짓고 싶고
새해가 떠오를 때도
서로의 품 속에서 맞고 싶어
근데 일단은 오늘은
식은 죽 먹지 말고
이번 한 주에 집중하자
매주 나를 시험하는
월 화 수
목 금 토
간절하게 딱 하나만을
기다리며 나를 다스려
That Sunday candy가 고파
아직 일주일이나 남았어

해는 움직임이 없는데
요일은 바뀌어 있어
눈을 감았는데 잠들기엔
내방은 너무 밝어
알람 필요 없어
씻고 눕자마자 일어나서
나갈 준비해야 해
후드 대충 또 걸쳐 입고 6일은

기계 같은 삶에 딱 하루 Sunday
니가 뜨고* 의미 있는 빛이 내려
기분 좋은 전화를 받고 아침을 맞어
해는 금방 저물고
보지 못했었던 달도
뜨지 않았으면 해

잠깐 소녀야 일주일 내내 보고 싶어
잠깐 소녀야 너는 날 꽉 채워줘
잠깐 소녀야 단 하루뿐이더라도
너 없는 만데이 to 세러데이
그 다음에는 만세
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
일요일이 올 때면 야호
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
네게 달려 가는 중

look at my style
이날을 기다렸어
일요일로 달리는 시간들은
느릿한 게 마치 거북이 같어
견우가 된 거 같아 **
오작교 언제 오냐고
일요일이 되자마자
내 직녀를 보러 마음 급히 달려가
but sunday 짧고 태양은 되게 빨리져
난 이 시간이 쉽게 가지 말길
별들을 보면서 빌고 빌어
1분이 1년처럼 늦게 가길
Monday to Saturday 난 생각해
이 날이 삭제됐음 좋겠어
매일매일 일요일이면 어떨까
상상하게 돼

따스한 월요일
아침 잠이 덜 깬 듯
아직 어제에서 나오지 못했지
떠올라 그 의 순간이
또 다시 잊어버리고
일들을 해나가야겠지
그래야 내가 널 기다리는
한 주가 더 금방 갈 테니
그렇게 6일을 버티네
두 손 두 발 걷어붙이고
3일은 널 본 기억과
3일은 널 볼 생각에
매일 얼굴이 붉어져
앞에 있는 것도 아닌데
그러니 그날만 되면
두 손 번쩍 들고 얼음이 되지

잠깐 소녀야 일주일 내내 보고 싶어
잠깐 소녀야 너는 날 꽉 채워줘
잠깐 소녀야 단 하루뿐이더라도
너 없는 만데이 to 세러데이
그 다음에는 만세
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
일요일이 올 때면 야호
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
만세 만세 만세 YEH
네게 달려 가는 중

Hur.rah (Hiphop Team ver.)

Monday
Starting from today, we have to run again
Different from before
The destination is clear
Jump over all the hurdles
This whole year, until the end with you
Want to see it through until the end
Even when the new year comes
Want to greet it in each other’s arms
But first, today
Let’s not eat cold porridge
Let’s just concentrate on this week
Testing me every week
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Just one thing we earnestly
wait for, it holds me down
That Sunday candy, I crave it
We still have a week left

The sun doesn’t move
The days of the week change
Though I close my eyes to sleep
My room is too bright
Don’t need an alarm
As soon as I wash up and lay down, gotta get up
And get ready to go out
Just throw on a hoody to wear, the 6 days are

A robot-like life, just one day, Sunday
You come up* and a meaningful light shines down
Answering the happy call, I greet the morning
The sun immediately sets
And the moon I never get to see
Hope it doesn’t rise

Hold up girl, I miss you all week
Hold up girl, you fill me up
Hold up girl, even if it’s only one day
Minus you, Monday to Saturday
After that, hurrah
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
When Sunday comes, hooray
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
I’m racing towards you

look at my style
I waited for this day
The time spent racing towards Sunday
The slowness feels like a turtle
Like I’ve become Gyun Woo,**
when will the bridge come
As soon as it becomes Sunday
I hurriedly race to meet my Jik Nyeo
But Sunday, the short sun sets quickly
I don’t take this time for granted
Wish and pray as I look up at the stars
Hope that 1 minute goes as slowly as 1 year
Monday to Saturday, I think of it
It would be great if these days can be erased
What would it be like if every single day is Sunday
Makes me imagine it

A warm Monday
Barely awake in the morning
Still haven’t come out from yesterday
Comes to mind, that moment with you
Must forget it again
In order to go do some work
So that waiting for you
For one week goes by faster
That’s how I survive 6 days
Two hands, two feet, roll up my sleeves
For 3 days, memories of seeing you
For 3 days, thinking about seeing you
My face gets red everyday
It’s not like I’m in front of you
So that’s why when that day comes
I hope up my two hands high and freeze

Hold up girl, I miss you all week
Hold up girl, you fill me up
Hold up girl, even if it’s only one day
Minus you, Monday to Saturday
After that, hurrah
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
When Sunday comes, hooray
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah YEH
I’m racing towards you

Another remake of song, BTS’ “Coffee” was originally Urban Zakapa’s “커피를 마시고 (Drinking Coffee)”.  Both songs are about a breakup and both songs have essentially the same chorus, except for the verses which are entirely different.  I would say that both songs also have a sweet element to it.  However, Urban Zakapa’s version comes off as a bit more subdued where the pain is more palpable and the experiences are a lot more detailed in the BTS’ version.  As much as I love coffee and could never give it up, you never know which old flame might come to mind when you get your next caffeine fix.

BTS – Coffee

방탄소년단 – Coffee

Coffee

baby baby 그대는 Caramel Macchiato
여전히 내 입가엔 그대 향기 달콤해
baby baby tonight

Girl 나 데뷔했어, 이 말 한 마디면 되겠지?
얼마나 성공할 지 세상이랑 내기했어
네게만 보여주던 내 반달 눈웃음,
요즘 다시 짓고 다녀
내 팬들이 궁금해해줘
아 그리고 잘 안 마셔 마끼아또
알잖아 너 땜에
습관이 된 아메리카노
사귈 땐 이게 무슨 맛인가 싶었었는데
차갑고 뒷맛은 씁쓸한 게
니가 없으니까
이젠 조금 이해가 돼 girl
이렇게 다들 익숙해져가는 거라면
후회 많을 불장난을
다시 선택하겠어 나는
우리의 야속하던 약속들, 수많던 잘못들과
또 다른 잘못들 사이 놓인 말 못할 잘잘못들
맛볼수록 쓰기만 했던 추억이 담긴 잔
왜 들이키게 되는지 알 것 같지만
다 이렇게 사는 거란 말이 왜이리 슬프지 나

baby baby 그대는 Caramel Macchiato
여전히 내 입가엔 그대 향기 달콤해
baby baby tonight
baby baby 그대는 café latte 향보다
포근했던 그 느낌 기억하고 있나요
baby baby tonight

Baby tonight 잘 자요 오늘 밤
괜히 둘 사이 어색한 기류만
흐르던 첫 문자와 첫 통화
기대하던 첫 만남 근데 난 왜
손톱만 물어뜯었을까 긴장해서였을까
시간이 흐르고 자연스레 우리 둘 사인
연인 아님 애인 그런 말들로 매일
서로를 확인하고 확인했지 맘에 새긴
우리의 첫 만남은 캬라멜 마끼아또
처럼 달콤했지
어디든 같이 가고 싶던 마음도
시간이 지나면서
마치 에스프레소처럼 내려놓게 되었어
Uh 괜시리 속 아프네, uh 우린 참 좋았는데
이별은 쓰디쓴 아메리카노
아직도 추억은 여전히 그 카페로 가고 있어

baby baby 그대는 Caramel Macchiato
여전히 내 입가엔 그대 향기 달콤해
baby baby tonight
baby baby 그대는 café latte 향보다
포근했던 그 느낌 기억하고 있나요
baby baby tonight

그래 매일 하루종일
니 향기 속에 취하던 시절과
서로 먼 훗날을 기약하며
이별을 택했던 기억이 나
너와 같이 좋아했던 민트향,
커피를 먹다 보니 너가 생각나며 rewind
시간이 많이 지난 요즘 가끔
니가 보고픈 건 왜일까?

baby baby 그대는 Caramel Macchiato
여전히 내 입가엔 그대 향기 달콤해
baby baby tonight
baby baby 그대는 café latte 향보다
포근했던 그 느낌 기억하고 있나요
baby baby tonight

Coffee

baby baby, You are like Caramel Macchiato
Still, in the corner of my life, your scent is sweet
baby baby tonight

Girl, I debuted, it’ll do with this one phrase, right?
Bet the world about how successful I’ll become
Showing only you my half-moon smile,
Recently, I’ve been going around smiling like that
My fans are curious
Ah, and I don’t even drink macchiatos that much
You know, because of you,
Americanos have become my habit
When we dated, I wondered what this taste was
Cold and the bitter aftertaste was
because you weren’t there
Now I understand it a bit better, girl
This is how people get used to it
Truly regret over playing with fire
Would I be able to go with that choice again
The promises that we made, with the countless wrongs
On top of other wrongs, the wrongs I haven’t admitted
The more I taste it, the cup filled with bitter memories
Though I might know why I keep drinking it
Why is sad knowing that everyone lives like this?

baby baby, You are like Caramel Macchiato
Still, in the corner of my life, your scent is sweet
baby baby tonight
baby baby, More than the scent of a café latte
Cozy that feeling, do you remember it?
baby baby tonight

Baby tonight, sleep well tonight
A needlessly awkward atmosphere between us
Flowed, that first text and first call
Anticipated that first meeting, but why did I
Bite my nails, did I get nervous
As time flowed, it became natural between us two
Lover or girlfriend, with those words everyday
Checking each other out, our hearts have already checked
Our first meeting was a Caramel Macchiato
Sweet like that,
My heart that wanted to follow wherever you go
As time passed
Like an espresso, I put it all down
Uh, might does hurt, uh we were good together
Breakups are a bitter Americano
The memories still take me to that café

baby baby, You are like Caramel Macchiato
Still, in the corner of my life, your scent is sweet
baby baby tonight
baby baby, More than the scent of a café latte
Cozy that feeling, do you remember it?
baby baby tonight

Yeah, every day, all day long
The time I was drunk with your scent
As we hope for a better future for each other
I remember the breakup we decided upon
With you, the scent of mint we liked
As I drink coffee, I think of you and rewind
As a lot of time has passed, occasionally, sometimes
Why is that I miss you?

baby baby, You are like Caramel Macchiato
Still, in the corner of my life, your scent is sweet
baby baby tonight
baby baby, More than the scent of a café latte
Cozy that feeling, do you remember it?
baby baby tonight

Originally released this past Spring, “봄인가 봐 (Spring Love) (It Must Be Spring (Spring Love))” simply captures that feeling of young love between friends who discover that their feelings go much deeper than they originally thought.  While I do love Red Velvet’s Wendy’s collaboration with Eric Nam, doesn’t the music video make you think of We Got Married?  I’m just putting it out there that I wouldn’t mind if Eric Nam and Mamamoo’s Solar covers this song in a collaboration performance at KCON.  If you like this song, I’d recommend checking out the other SM Station collaborations as they’ve all pretty great.

에릭남 , 웬디 [레드벨벳] – 봄인가 봐 (Spring Love)

*널 사랑해 너를 사랑해 사랑해 널 – All of the phrases say “I love you” in a slightly different way but there’s no difference in the meaning.

봄인가 봐 (Spring Love)

눈꽃이 내린 버스 정류장에 날 데려다주다
꼭 내 손을 잡는 너 때문에 나 놀랐어
아주 오래전부터
숨겼던 내 맘이 들킨 걸까
부는 바람에 실린
우리에게 번진
This is love

내 마음에 내려와 사뿐히 내려와
네 어깨 위에도 벌써 내린 그 이름
봄인가 봐
우리 잡은 손 틈 사이
얇아진 외투 사이
어느새 스며들어
우릴 변화시킨 봄이 왔나 봐

첨엔 그랬어 편한 친구
혹 동생 같았어
치마를 입고 꾸민 모습에도 놀라지 않았어
뭐가 우릴 지금 이렇게 바꿔 놓은 걸까
Maybe it’s crazy
Can I call you my baby, yeah

내 마음에 내려와 사뿐히 내려와
네 어깨 위에도 벌써 내린 그 이름
봄인가 봐
우리 잡은 손 틈 사이
얇아진 외투 사이
어느새 스며들어
우릴 변화시켜 Oh

우리 서로에 기대어 잠든 벤치
투명한 하늘에 물든 Sweet cherry blossom
늘 이러면 좋겠다 Yeah
우릴 바꾼 그 이름
봄봄봄 봄 Ooh
널 사랑해 너를 사랑해
사랑해 널 Yeah

넌 봄이 돼줘 항상 나는 꽃이 될게
서로를 녹여주고 열리게 해주면 좋겠다
안 보이던 마음과 마음
마주한 시선 사이
겨우내 숨어있던 꽃이 피었나 봐
봄이 왔나 봐

It Must Be Spring (Spring Love)

As you walk me to the bus stop where petals have fallen
You hold my hand tight, I was surprised because of you
From way back,
did you find out about my hidden feelings?
Carried away on the blowing wind,
spreading to us
This is love

Coming down on my heart, lightly coming down
Already fallen down on your shoulders, that name
It must be Spring
Between the hands we’ve held,
between the thinning coat
At some point permeating,
the Spring must have come changed us

At first, it was like a comfortable friend
Possibly like a younger sister
Was alarmed at you wearing a skirt or being made up
What is it that made us change like this?
Maybe it’s crazy
Can I call you my baby, yeah

Coming down on my heart, lightly coming down
Already fallen down on your shoulders, that name
It must be Spring
Between the hands we’ve held,
between the thinning coat
At some point permeating,
it must have changed us, Oh

Fallen asleep on the bench as we lean on each other
Transparent skies tinged with Sweet cherry blossom
It would be great if it was always like this, Yeah
That name that changed us,
Spring, spring, spring Spring, Ooh
I love you, I am in love with you,
I’m in love with you, Yeah*

You be Spring and I’ll always be a flower
Melt each other and it would be great if we open up
The heart and feelings we didn’t see
Between the look as we face each other
The hidden flower that must have barely blossomed
Spring must have come

I love Mamamoo because they are a group that’s silly and spirited.  However, it’s rare to find a girl idol group in which all of the members are solid singers.  Although “I Miss You” is a slow ballad, I love the steady and calming pace of this track.  It’s a track that showcases their soulful voices and even though it’s not easy to admit to these feelings of insecurity, there’s something courageous about just being able to express.

Mamamoo – I Miss You

마마무(Mamamoo) – I Miss You

I Miss You

저녁 노을 하늘을 바라보면
So much I miss you
바람이 좋은 이런 날이면
난 너너너너너

좋은 노래 소리가 들리면
So much I miss you
좋은 영활 볼 때면 또 생각나
난 너너너너너

너와 나누던 나의 하루는
이젠 없는데

별이 뜨는 밤이면 언제나
So much I miss you
소리 없이 눈물이 흐르면
난 너너너너너
너의 목소리도
So much I miss you
어제도 오늘도
난 너너너너너

나를 어루만지던 그 손길
So much I miss you
내가 보고 싶다고 떼를 쓰던
너너너너너

너와 나누던 나의 하루는
이젠 없는데

별이 뜨는 밤이면 언제나
So much I miss you
소리 없이 눈물이 흐르면
난 너너너너너
너의 목소리도
So much I miss you
어제도 오늘도
난 너너너너너

요즘 너 대신 안고 자는 티슈
폰 재생목록에
슬픈 노래만이 가득 찬 이유
이 노래처럼 내 맘을
위로해 줄 것 만 같아
But I miss you
(방안 곳곳 남겨진 니 흔적
온통 눈물로 번져)
누구나 하는 이별
왜이리 유별나게 구는 건지
오늘따라 유난스러

너의 속삭임 너의 손길은
이젠 없는데 오 난 너뿐인데
난 니가 그리워

별이 뜨는 밤이면 언제나
So much I miss you
소리 없이 눈물이 흐르면
난 너너너너너
너의 목소리도
So much I miss you
어제도 오늘도
난 너너너너너

별이 뜨는 밤이면 언제나
So much I miss you
소리 없이 눈물이 흐르면
난 너너너너너
Whenever Wherever
So much I miss you
Whenever Wherever
I miss you So much
난 너너너너너
No No No So much I miss you
난 너너너너너

I Miss You

When I look upon the evening sunset
So much I miss you
A good breezy day like today
I’m you you you you you

When I hear the sounds of a good song
So much I miss you
When I see a good movie again I think of
I’m you you you you you

My day that I shared with you
Now I no longer have it

When it’s a starlit sky, always
So much I miss you
When I shed tears silently
I’m you you you you you
Even your voice
So much I miss you
Yesterday and even today,
I’m you you you you you

That hand that caressed me
So much I miss you
When I hassle you about missing you
You you you you you

My day that I shared with you
Now I no longer have it

When it’s a starlit sky, always
So much I miss you
When I shed tears silently
I’m you you you you you
Even your voice
So much I miss you
Yesterday and even today,
I’m you you you you you

These days I’m sleeping hanging on to a tissue instead of you
On my phone’s playlist
The reason why I have it full of sad songs
Like this song, my heart feels
Like it’ll be consoled
But I miss you
(Reminders of you in the corners of my room
Entirely filled with tears)
A breakup that everyone’s been through
Why are you being so unusual
Today of all days, acting out of the ordinary

Your whispers, your touch
Now I no longer have it, oh I only have you
I long for you

When it’s a starlit sky, always
So much I miss you
When I shed tears silently
I’m you you you you you
Even your voice
So much I miss you
Yesterday and even today,
I’m you you you you you

When it’s a starlit sky, always
So much I miss you
When I shed tears silently
I’m you you you you you
Whenever Wherever
So much I miss you
Whenever Wherever
I miss you So much
I’m you you you you you
No No No So much I miss you
I’m you you you you you
