Nuguna ireon geolkka
Geoul sok naega
Cham miwoss-eo

Does everyone feel
this way?
I really hated the me in the mirror

Amudo ihae mot hal
Ireon gibun-i nal gamssamyeon

When this feeling that
no one will understand surrounds me

Nae mam al-ajugil balaneun ge aniya
Geujeo naui gyeot-e iss-eo
Geu eokkae wilo

I don’t hope for you to understand my heart
Just stay by my side
On that shoulder of yours

Eodum ttwigo
Ttaseuhan geu ullim-i
Muneojin naui
Gaseum wilo

Breaking through
the darkness
That warm resonance
Over my collapsed heart

Geujeo himnaebolaneun
Geuleon maldeul boda
Geudaeui pum-i
Wilo-ga doeneun
I bam

Rather than words
telling me to be strong
Your embrace
becomes comfort
On this night

Himeobs-i banjjagideon
Byeoldeul-i jeonbu na gatjiman

The stars that twinkled weakly
Are all like me, ready to collapse

Eonjenga ilwojil-kka
Son-e dah-euldeushan kkum-i
Meolge boyeodo

Will that dream that seems within reach
come true someday
Even if it seems far away

Sseuleojil ttaemada son-eul geonnejujanh-a
Jab-eun son-e neukkyeojin ongi
Geu ma-eum wilo

Whenever I fall, you always reach out your hand to me
The warmth felt in the held hand
Becomes comfort for that heart of mine

Eodum ttwigo
Ttaseuhan geu ullim-i
Jichyeo iss-eossdeon
Naui kkumdeul geu wilo

Piercing through
the darkness
That warm resonance
Above my weary dreams

Maebeon himnaebolaneun
Geuleon maldeul boda
Geudaeui pum-i
Wilo-ga doeeo

Rather than words
telling me to be strong
Your embrace
becomes comfort

Geol-eum-eul meomchwo dol-abon himdeun sigando
Eoneusae naui bamgil-e bich-i doeeo

Even during the difficult times when I stop and look back
Suddenly, it becomes a light on my nighttime path

Bad-eun mankeum
Ijeneun geudae ma-eum wilo

As much as I’ve received
Now, it becomes comfort for your heart

Eodum ttwigo
Ttaseuhan geu ullim-i
Muneojin naui
Gaseum wilo

Breaking through
the darkness
That warm resonance
Over my collapsed heart

Geujeo himnaebolaneun
Himeobsneun mal daesin
Geudaeui pum-e
Angin bam-e

Instead of weak words
Telling me to be strong
In your embrace
On that night

Geu wilo
Ttaseuhan geu ullim-i
Jichyeo iss-eossdeon
Naui kkumdeul geu wilo

Above it
That warm resonance
Above my
weary dreams

Jalhago iss-eo
Jal haenaego iss-eo
Sogsag-yeo judeon
Pogeunham, wilo

You’re doing well
You’re managing well
The warmth that whispered to me
Comfort, embrace
