Korean Lyrics

아무리 기다려도 난 못가 바보처럼
울고 있는 너의 곁에
상처만 주는 나를 왜 모르고
기다리니 떠나가란 말야.
보고싶다 보고싶다
이런 내가 미워질만큼
울고 싶다 네게 무릎 꿇고
모두 없던 일이 될 수 있다면

미칠듯 사랑했던 기억이
추억들이 너를 찾고 있지만
더이상 사랑이란 변명에 너를 가둘 수 없어

이러면 안되지만 죽을만큼
보고 싶다

보고싶다 보고 싶다
이런 내가 미워질만큼
믿고 싶다 옳은 길이라고
너를 위해 떠나야만 한다고

미칠듯 사랑했던 기억이
추억들이 너를 찾고 있지만
더 이상 사랑이란 변명에 너를 가둘수 없어

이러면 안되지만 죽을만큼
보고 싶다

죽을 만큼 잊고 싶다

Translation

I won’t go, I’ll just wait here
Like a fool crying beside you
I don’t know why you had to hurt me
I won’t leave, I’ll keep on waiting.
I miss you, I miss you
At times, you may hate me
I want to cry, kneel down for me
If it turns out that there’s nothing we can do about it

The memory of being madly in love
I find you in those memories
We couldn’t have been more in love

I won’t choose this for you, I will never let it happen
But I’ll miss you as you’re dead

I miss you, I miss you
At times you may hate me
I want to believe this is the right way
I’m leaving to go to you

The memory of being madly in love
I find you in those memories
We couldn’t have been more in love

I won’t choose this for you, I will never let it happen
But I’ll miss you as you’re dead

I want to forget that you’re dead

⤖ So this song has a lot of emotional feelings because on December 18, 2017 Jonghyun died at the age of 27 and when this happened I was asleep until I suddenly woke up as if I was having a nightmare. It was around 8:00 AM and I was wondering what was happening, until my friend told me that he had passed away. My first thought was that this was a horrible joke made by a horrible anti-fan, until the news broke out then I started to believe it and I was in total shock. I didn't know what to do and kept telling myself that this was a nightmare and that I would wake up and he would be perfectly fine... I was wrong. I didn't want to let him go, and up to this day I still believe that he is not gone. But I know that he is in a better place and that he is looking down and protecting us from above.

You did well, Johnghyun

⤖ So the reason why I wanted I have the lyrics for this song is because at the time of mourning I heard this song and the words hit me like a brick. ESPECIALLY the last line of the song and it goes 'I want to forget that your dead' that last note is where I started to really cry my heart out. And from then on I fell in love with the song and it helps me cope with the sadness that I have in my heart.

⤖ Now, I know that Im not the only one that has this sadness their hearts when it comes to Jonghyun. But I know that there will be a time where all Shallows and other Kpop fans will come together and take care of each other. There will be a time where all of us can smile at the sound of Jonghyun's voice and the picture of him smiling. Right now that his death anniversary is coming, we will all come together and celebrate the legend he has left for us to tell his story. Now just because we celebrate his death does not mean we didn't care about him. We celebrate his death because we cared for him more than anyone can think of. His story will never end and his story will never be forgotten.

There are 3 versions:

This is the first version: Kim Bum Soo

This is second version of a duet:

This is the third version: Son Seung Yeon

↑ This is the version I listened to during my sadness, but all of them are EXCELLENT to hear.

⤖ So information about this song: This song is an OST for a Korean Drama called Stairway to Heaven. This Korean Drama came out in Dec 3, 2003 and ended February 5, 2004. So this drama is about childhood sweethearts Jung Suh and Song Ju are separated by events in their lives and families. There are 20 episodes in this drama. From what is looks like it is a great drama and it will probably get you emotional. Not only that, but I hope there are other people who will enjoy this drama.

❉ AUTHOR'S NOTE: Sorry that this was a sad article and I hope that other people will get to listen to this song, but if its not your cup of tea then its okay! Now with the mention of Jonghyun I decided to write down my thoughts since his anniversary is coming up next month so I just thought that this would be a good idea to write down my thoughts of a song that helped me with my sadness. I just wanted to (hopefully) help others with this song. Well that's it for now! Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!
