Da ij-eossdaneun geojismal
tto hae beolyeossjyo
nae ma-eum-e geudaelan salam
eobsdago haessjyo
Neomuna swibge ijhyeojyeossdago ijen nam-ilago

I’ve lied once again, saying I’ve forgotten everything
That there’s no one named “you” in my heart
Saying that it was so easy to forget you
And that now you’re just someone else

Seotun nae salang-e jichyeo tteonan geudae
neomu manh-i ullyeoseo
Jab-eul yong-gijocha nael su eobs-eossjyo
mianhaeyo nae salang-a

You left because you were tired of my inexperienced love
I couldn’t even gather the courage to hold on
I’m sorry, my love

Dasin na gat-eun salam mannaji mayo
hogsi chaj-agado du beon dasi
Naleul heolaghae juji mayo geudaen yeoligo neomu chaghaeseo
silhdan maldo jal moshaneunde

Don’t ever meet someone like me again
And don’t ever come looking for me again
You’re too tender and kind-hearted
And I can’t even bring myself to say that I hate you

Manh-i bujoghan naleul salanghan geudae
Igeomyeon dwaess-eoyo deo isang-eun geudae bulhaenghaji anhdolog
na ijjeum-eseo eobs-eojineun ge
geudael wihan naui salang-in geol-yo

You loved me even though I was lacking in so many ways
That’s enough for me, so you won’t be unhappy anymore
Disappearing now is my way of loving you

Neomu tumyeonghaeseo ttaelon bul-anhaessjyo
jemeosdaelo sal-aon naleul
gamdanghal su eobs-eul geos gatjyo
mianhaeyo nae salang-a

I was so transparent that it made me uneasy at times
It seemed like I wouldn’t be able to handle living freely
I’m sorry, my love

Dasin na gat-eun salam mannaji mayo
hogsi chaj-agado du beon dasi
naleul heolaghae juji mayo
geudaen yeoligo neomu chaghaeseo Silhdan maldo jal moshaneunde

Don’t ever meet someone like me again
And don’t ever come looking for me again
You’re too tender and kind-hearted
And I can’t even bring myself to say that I hate you

Gomawoss-eoyo naleul salanghae jwoseo na gat-eun salam-i du beon dasi
gamhi bad-eul su eobsneun salang
geudae ttaemun-e haengboghaess-eoyo
ulji mayo geudae jal saeng-gaghae bwayo

Thank you for loving me
It’s a love that someone like me can never receive twice
Because of you, I was happy
Don’t cry, my love, please think about it carefully

Nappeun ildeulman gadeughaessdeon uli
da ij-eoya haeyo

Our past was filled with bad things
We have to forget everything

Dasin na gat-eun salam mannaji mayo hogsi chaj-agado du beon dasi
naleul heolaghae juji mayo geudaen yeoligo neomu chaghaeseo
silhdan maldo jal moshaneunde
manh-i bujoghan naleul salanghan geudae
igeomyeon dwaess-eoyo deo isang-eun geudae bulhaenghaji anhdolog
na ijjeum-eseo eobs-eojineun ge geudael wihan naui salang-in geol-yo

Don’t ever meet someone like me again
And don’t ever come looking for me again
You loved me even though
I was lacking in so many ways
That’s enough for me,
so you won’t be unhappy anymore
Disappearing now is my way of loving you.
