Always, I need it too

When I said I do

용기와 믿음 [mideum]
Courage and faith

긍정의 리듬 [rideum]
The rhythm of positivity

Always, I need it too

When I said I do

미래를 걷는 [geodneun]
Walking the future,

희망의 걸음 [geoleum]
my steps of hope

.

I was

I was, I was, I was, I was

그래 난 그냥 토박이였잖아 (uhm)
Yeah, I was just a [Gwangju] native (uhm)
Note: Airplane (“
Gwangju native’s big admiration for aviation”)

I was, I was, I was, I was

춤만 좋아하는 아이였잖아 (uhm)
Yeah, I was just a kid who only loved dancing (uhm)
Note: Path (“
My steps head to Seoul; I, who started out just because of the love for dance, now stand on the stage”)

나다워, 나다워, 나다워, 나다워 [nadaweo nadaweo nadaweo nadaweo]
This is who I am, I am, I am, I am

주어진 삶에 대해 감사하는 (uhm)
Being thankful for the life that’s given to me (uhm)
Note: Hope World (“
A life of appreciation for what’s given; A life created by anticipation of life”)

나다워, 나다워, 나다워, 나다워
This is who I am, I am, I am, I am

지금 가장 적절하고 나다워, 다워
It now feels most proper and most me 

.

늘 스스로 주체가 되어 싸워
I always lead the fight as my own boss

결국 내 마음은 멍투성이잖아
In the end, my heart is covered in bruises

평소에 다른 옷 입듯 try on
Like how I’d put on different clothes, try on

좋아하는 운전처럼
Like how I’d do on a leisurely drive,

한번 순리대로 밟어
I go with the flow, stepping on the accelerator 

내 피가 왜 돌겠어?
Why would it be that my blood circulates?

왜 움직이겠어?
Why would it move?

결국 변화하고
Everything eventually changes, and

영원한 건 없잖아
there’s nothing that lasts forever

You know, we know, I know

강을 거슬러 오르는 연어가 될 수 없단 걸
that I can’t be a salmon to swim against the stream
Note: Salmon hatch in freshwater, migrate to the ocean to spend most of their adult life, and migrate back to the freshwater, swimming against the stream, to spawn. There’s a famous 1998 song, 거꾸로 강을 거슬러 올라가는 저 힘찬 연어들처럼 (literal translation: “like the energetic salmon tracing up the river”) by Kang San-eh (ODG clip with English subtitle).

(Future)

그저 내 스스로 정할 수도, 단정할 수도 없는 것
It’s not something that I alone can just decide or assume about

(Future)

다가올수록 무섭기도, 홀로 버티기도 버거운 것
It’s something that can be scary as it gets closer, something that is beyond my own capacity to hold out against

(Future)

Man, you must go with the flow

그저 흐르는 대로 가보자고
Let’s just go with the flow

(Future)

필요해 보여 나에게도
It looks like I too would need it

용기와 믿음으로 희망에 건
With courage and faith, I bet hope on

(Future)
