장기하와 얼굴들 ~ 그러게 왜 그랬어

Kiha and the Faces, “You Shouldn’t Have Done That”

 

This was the song that made me fall in love with Kiha and the Faces. The very first time I ever saw them live was at Rainbow Island last year, and their energy and the energy of the crowd was incredible from the very beginning. They played this song toward the end and that’s when I knew – I would have to look this band up when I got back home. What I didn’t know was how much of a fangirl I would become.

This song itself, especially the way Kiha performs it live, is absolute seduction. Maybe there was massive tension between the two people in the past (playing hard to get is coming to be a highly contentious issue in Korea), but what’s to come… is inevitable.

 

 

한국어:

 

그러게 왜 그랬어?

왜 애초에 그런 말을 했어?

이렇게 이 시간에 찾아올 거면서

비는 또 왜 맞았어?

너 지금 무슨 드라마 찍어?

그렇게 걸친 것도 없이 얇게 입고서

 

왜 그러고 섰어?

들어와, 얼른 들어와

씻어, 보일러 켜놨어

나 내일 일 있어

어제도 잘 못 잤어

나 잘게, 씻어

거실 불은 네가 꺼

 

맨날 왜 그래?

맨날 왜 그래?

뭐가 맨날 이렇게 힘들어?

너랑 나는 왜 맨날 똑같은 자리에서

이렇게 힘들어?

 

그러게 왜 그랬어?

왜 애초에 그런 말을 했어?

이렇게 아무 말도 하질 못할 거면서

아 또 왜 울어?

나는 뭐 괜찮아서 이래?

그렇게 모진 말도 잘만 했었으면서

 

왜 그러고 섰어?

일루 와, 얼른 일루 와

이렇게 안고 있으면 미친 듯이 좋은데

 

맨날 왜 그래?

맨날 왜 그래?

뭐가 맨날 이렇게 힘들어?

너랑 나는 왜 맨날 똑같은 자리에서

이렇게 힘들어?

 

 

English:

 

But I mean why were you like that?

Why did you say those things in the beginning

if you were just gonna come here at this time anyway?

Why are you wet with rain again?

Are you, like, shooting a drama here or something?

You’re dressed so lightly with nothing heavier to wear

 

Why are you just standing there?

Come in, hurry up, come in

Wash up; I’ve turned the boiler on

I have work in the morning

and I didn’t sleep well last night, either

I’m gonna go to bed

Wash up; turn the lights off yourself

 

Why are we always like this?

Why are we always like this?

What is so difficult about all this?

Why are we always stuck in the same place,

making things difficult?

 

But I mean why were you like that?

Why did you say things like that in the beginning,

if you were just gonna wind up unable to say anything like this?

Aw man, why are you crying again?

Why, because I’m such a great guy or something?

All you used to be able to say were mean things

 

Why are you standing there like that?

Come here, hurry up, come here

When I’m hugging you like this, it’s crazy good but

 

Why are we always like this?

Why are we always like this?

What is so difficult about all this?

Why are we always stuck in the same place,

making things difficult?
