상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

투빅 ~ 뒤로 걷기


2BiC, “Walk Backward”

 
I’ve never talked about 2BiC before, not because they’re not astounding singers but just because they’re not my style. For the same reason I was particularly fond of K.Will’s “이러지마 제발” but not really any of his other songs, I’m not usually a huge ballad fan unless there is something particularly compelling about the song. There is undeniably something compelling about “뒤로 걷기,” and I think it hit me from the first moment I heard the harmony in the bridge before the first chorus. It seemed somewhat hallowing, matched by a slight bump from the orchestra.

The music video is equally hallowing, depicting a man, struggling to move on, who discovers his girl has already freed herself from the struggle. Even though he wants to walk back to her, he is eventually able to free himself. The video actually has a much more positive end than the song, as the song doesn’t include the last aspect of being freed.

 

가사 / Lyrics

 

한국어:

이토록 오래 니 등을 바라보는 것
처음인 것 같지만 마지막이기도 해
새로 찾은 사랑에게 가는 널 보며
뒤로 걷는 나는 아직 찾아갈 곳이 없어

뒤로 걸어야만 해
너 없는 내일도 난
널 보며 살아야 해

사랑하는 baby 부디 행복해줘 baby
날 떠나 잘 있다는 소식에
웃으며 널 잊도록
먼 훗날엔 baby 너와 얘기하던 baby
수도 없는 이별 뒤로
흐려지고 말거야 우린

흐를 준비를 마친 꽉 차오른 눈물
언제 흘러내리든 난 할 일을 해야 해

앞을 걸어야만 해
지금을 살아야 해
주저앉으면 안 돼

사랑하는 baby 부디 행복해줘 baby
날 떠나 잘 있다는 소식에 웃으며 널 잊도록
먼 훗날에 baby 너와의 기억은 baby
수도 없는 이별 뒤로
흐려지고 말거야

사랑해 이 말은 더는 네가
나에게 듣고 싶지가 않은 말

Don’t cry 앞을 걸어야만 해
Don’t cry 지금 살지 못해
Don’t cry 주저앉으면 안 돼

지금부터 baby 나는 걱정 말아 baby
이별은 너의 탓이 아니야
마지막 추억이야

너와 걷던 땅과
같이 올려보던 하늘
네가 떠난 어제처럼
나와 함께 똑같이 흘러

모든게 제 시간 속에 흘러가지만
잠시만 더 너를 보며
뒤로 걷고 있을게…

 

English:

[It seems like the first time but it’s really the last
that I’ve stared at your back for this long]
As I watch you going to search for a new love
I, walking backward, still have nowhere to go

I can only walk backward
[As I watch you,
I have to live tomorrow without you]

I love you, baby, please be happy, baby
The more news (I hear) that you’ve been well since you left me
The more I can forget, smiling
In the far future, baby, the talks I had with you, baby
After the breakup where I didn’t have a single option [move]
We’ll become complicated [murky, clouded]

Tears completely bubble up like they prepared to flow
Whenever they fall, I have to do what I can

I have to walk forward
I have to live for the now
I can’t fall down

I love you, baby, please be happy, baby
The more news (I hear) that you’ve been well since you left me
The more I can forget, smiling
In the far future, baby, the memories I have with you, baby
After the breakup where I didn’t have a single option [move]
We’ll become complicated [murky, clouded]

[The words “I love you”
are the words you don’t want to hear from me]

(Don’t cry) I should walk forward
(Don’t cry) I can’t live now
(Don’t cry) I can’t fall down

From now on, baby, don’t worry about me, baby
The breakup isn’t your fault
It’s our last memory

The ground I walked with you
and the sky we looked up at together
Like the yesterday when you left
it falls exactly the same as me

Everything passes in time, but
As I look at you just a little bit longer
I’ll walk back…

 

Korean lyrics from Daum.
