Jal jinae boyeo neoneun
Amu il eopsneun deut cham bunjuhae boyeo
Ttakhi sin-gyeong sseul geotdo
Geokjeonghae jul ildo eopsneun saramcheoreom

You seem to be doing well,
Looking busy as if you have no worries,
Like someone who doesn’t have anything to care about
Or anything to worry about.

Jamkkan dong-an pyeonhaesseo
Himdeulge hadeon niga eopseo

It was nice for a moment,
Not having to deal with the difficulties caused by you.

Tteona boni jom eottae, saenggakcheoreom neon pyeonhae
Neoreul nohchigo maeil huhwehahmyeo jinaesseo
Naman geuraetna bwa, chuk cheojin eokkaereul hwahljjak piramyeo
Nal todakigo gass-eo

How is it now that you’ve left? You seem comfortable, just as I thought.
I spent every day regretting and missing you.
Maybe it was just me, my shoulders slumped, saying goodbye,
You patted me and left.

Ne yubyulnan salang-eul munje sam-assdeon
Naleul yongseohae

Forgive me for considering
your unique love a problem.

Tteona boni jom eottae, saenggakcheoreom neon pyeonhae
Neoreul nohchigo maeil huhwehahmyeo jinaesseo
Naman geuraetna bwa, chuk cheojin eokkaereul hwahljjak piramyeo
Nal todakigo gass-eo

How is it now that you’ve left? You seem comfortable, just as I thought.
I spent every day regretting and missing you.
Maybe it was just me, my shoulders slumped, saying goodbye,
You patted me and left.

Witaeleoun uri
Neoneun jikyeonaeryeo butjapgo isseoss-eo
Doelyeo hwaleul naego neoleul jichige hago
Niga da munjelamyeo michin solil haess-eo

Our relationship was precarious,
You were trying to hold on to it.
Instead, I got angry and made you tired,
Saying everything was your fault and talking nonsense.

Neo eobs-i naneun andwae, ireohge neol mot bonae
Naneun ajigdo mot haejun ge neomu manh-eunde
Ireohge oechyeodo gudeojin ne mam-eul
Dolril su eobsneun naega neomu bimda

I can’t be without you; I can’t let you go like this.
There are still so many things I haven’t done for you.
Even if I shout like this, I can’t change
Your hardened heart, and I hate myself for it.
