Ran, “For the First Time Since I Was Born”

 

NOT to be confused with the Frozen (겨울왕국) song of the same name, this fairly old and rather Younha-esque rock ballads is one of my favorites. Ran has been an active singer for quite some time, but due to infrequent releases and the limitations of a small company, she is too unknown for my tastes.

Where this song lacks in meaning and lyrics, it makes up for in dynamics. Building from a hushed, piano-backed opening to a rock-driven chorus, Ran demonstrates her abilities to deliver up an emotional roller coaster.

 

The video includes Chinese subs, which is great for Chinese speakers! But English speakers are left in the dark, so I wanted to remedy that. Anything in [brackets] means the Korean sentence structure is different from the English, so I had to switch or jumble two lines together.

 

한국어:

방 한구석에 앉아서 있었어
이렇게도 아플 줄은 몰랐어
왜 난 아프고 아프고
살아야 하는데 wanna know
더는 아프기 싫은데
울기도 싫은데 어떻게 하라고
이렇게 떠나지 마
차갑게 날 떠나지 마
사랑할때와 이별이
완전 반대가 돼니

[후렴:]
아파 태어나서 처음으로
이렇게 나 아프긴 첨이야
어떻게 사랑한다고
나 하나라고 왜 말한거야
내가 사랑따위에 비참이
이렇게 날 찢길 줄 몰랐어
눈물아 멈춰라 가슴아 잊어라
사랑은 떠나갔어

그래 너밖에 몰랐어
미련했어 내가 I’m a foolish
더는 믿는게 아닌데
사랑도 아닌데
그 뻔한 거짓말
왜 나만 아픈건데
왜 나만 또 보고 싶은데
전부 날 위한 거라고
그건 널 위한 거짓말

[후렴]

I know 더는 볼 수 없어
I know 더는 안돼잖아
두 번은 안 할래
사랑은 안 할래
난 이제는…

[후렴]

방 한구석에 앉아서 있었어
방 한구석에 앉아서 있었어

 

 

English:

I sat in the corner of the room
I didn’t know it would hurt this much
[Why do I have to live
In pain and hurting, wanna know]
I don’t want to hurt anymore
I hate crying, too, but what can I do?
Don’t leave me like this
Don’t coldly leave me
[I’ve become totally opposed
To dating and breakups]

[CHORUS:]
I’m hurting for the first time since I was born
This is the first time I’ve hurt like this
How could you say you love me?
Why did you say I was the only one?
[I didn’t know love and everything was miserable
And that it would rip at me]
Stop, tears! My heart, forget it all!
Love has left

That’s right, I didn’t know anyone but you
(alt: you were my one and only)
I was stupid, I was foolish
I can’t believe anymore
I can’t love, either
[Why did those brazen lies
Hurt only me?]
Why do only I want to see you again?
And yet you said this was all for my sake
That was a lie for yourself

[CHORUS]

I know, I can’t see you anymore
I know, this won’t do anymore
I don’t wanna do it twice
I don’t wanna love
Now I…

[CHORUS]

I sat in the corner of the room
I sat in the corner of the room
