10cm ~ 그리워라


10cm, “Miss You”

 

My absolute favorite Korean group is back with their third album that presents a collection of songs that will both appease fans who love 10cm’s original sound and listeners who love to hear something new. Their pre-release track “쓰담쓰담” and this promoted song are similar in style to the sound that made 10cm popular, “담배왕 스모킹” and “Dreams Come True” are fairly experimental. The former (loosely translated as “Smoking Cigarette King”) sounds like a metal song in acoustic indie form. The latter is, to me at least, reminiscent of Greek folk music. As soon as I heard it, my mind flew back to watching Zorba the Greek, a film I haven’t seen in at least ten years.

Anyway, the promoted song, “그리워라 (Miss You)” uses a deceptively cheerful sound to delve into the difficulties of getting over breakups – even if they’re clean. 10cm really seem to like their melodica because it features heavily in several of the songs. And I’m not complaining, since it really fits the color of 10cm’s music.

 

(Just a hint for anyone wondering how to pronounce the band’s name in Korean, it’s not “ten centimeters” but sounds closer to “shib senchi”)

 

Lyrics

하국어:

가끔씩 자꾸 니 생각이 나서
잠도 오지를 않고
마음만 괜히 심란하고

우리는 깨끗이 헤어졌지만
지겹던 너의 얼굴이…
지겹던 너의 목소리가…

그리워라라라라라라라라
그대와와와와와와와와
함께 걷고 싶던 거리엔 사람도 없는데

그리워라라라라라라라라
그대와와와와와와와와
함께 보고 싶던 영화는 막을 내렸는데
우리는

어제도 자꾸 니 생각이 나서
밥도 먹기가 싫고
머리만 괜히 복잡하고

우리는 쿨하게 헤어졌지만
귀찮던 너의 전화가…
귀찮던 너와의 약속이…

그리워라라라라라라라라
그대와와와와와와와와
함께 가고 싶던 식당은 손님이 없는데

그리워라라라라라라라라
그대와와와와와와와와
함께 놀고 싶던 공원은 문을 닫았는데

우리는 깨끗이 헤어졌지만
다시는 마주칠 일도 없겠지만
이대로 시간이 흐르는 대로
우연히 다시 만나길 기약하네

 

 

English:

Sometimes I keep thinking of you
so sleep doesn’t come and
only mind is needlessly uneasy

We cleanly broke up but
your boring face…
your boring voice…

I miss it la la la la~
[There are no people
on the street I wanted to walk
with with with you]

I miss you la la la~
[They’ve stopped showing
the movie I wanted to see
with with with you]

I kept thinking of you yesterday, too
I don’t want to eat and
only my mind is uselessly cluttered

We broke up coolly but
your annoying phone calls…
that annoying promise I made with you…

I miss them la la la~
[There are no customers at the restaurant
I wanted to go
with with with you]

I miss you la la la~
[The door to the park is closed but
I wanted to go play
with with with you]

We completely broke up but
There won’t be a day when we will run into each other again but
time is passing like this
We promised to meet again by chance
