Bye Bye Badman, “Décalcomanie”

 

Long before Mamamoo’s “Décalcomanie” (also good but vastly different), Bye Bye Badman released a song of the same name on their first album, Light Beside You, which is pretty much one of the most awesome album names in Korea. Not their most popular song ever but I enjoy it, nor the easiest to translate, but I enjoy it. The painful appeal is reflected in the lyrics here.

 

 

한국어:

 

딱한 네 눈초리

늘 지쳐있는 표정이

항상 날 실망하게 하는 것 같아

Don’t be afraid boy

 

꿈 꿨던 날들을

보내왔던 현실에 비해

더 기대 하는 네 맘을 알아

머지않아서

 

남색 하늘이 열리고

그 희미했던 별들이 보일 때 쯤엔

우리도 빛나고 있을까?

너는 그 대답을 갖고있어

 

날 어지럽게 한 거짓말까지 아름다워

Your life is so pure

내 뼈속까지 녹아내린 것 같은

눅눅한 기분으로 난 눈을 떠

 

잠들지 못한 밤

그 밤 사이로 난 벗어나

아직 곤히 잠든 널 깨우고싶어

이젠 눈을 떠줘

 

아련한 기억들도

싹 다 잊어버린 것 같아

제발 내 눈앞의 거울을 부숴줘

난 너가될거야

 

차가운 하늘이 열리고

그 희미했던 별들이 보일때쯤에

조각난 내 손끝이 무기력한데

난 다시 네가될 수 있을까?

넌 그대답을 갖고있어

 

날 어지럽게 한 거짓말까지 아름다워

Your life is so pure

내 뼈속까지 녹아내린 것 같은

눅눅한 기분으로 난 눈을 떠

 

이게 다 모두 널 위한거였어

Your life is so pure

 

 

English:

 

Your pitiful glance

Your constantly annoyed expression

It seems like I always make you disappointed

Don’t be afraid, boy

 

[You compare the reality that has come to pass

to the days you had dreamed of]

I know how much more you had anticipated them

They’ll come soon, so

 

The dark blue sky opens and

about the time the faint stars become visible

do you think we’re shining, too?

You have the answer to that

 

Even your lies that make me confused are beautiful

Your life is so pure

I feel like I’ll melt to my very bones

I open my eyes to such a damp feeling

 

A sleepless night

I escape from that night

You’re fast asleep, I want to wake you up

Open your eyes for me now

 

Even the faint memories

it seems like I’ll forget every single one

Please break this mirror in front of my eyes

I’ll become you

 

The chilly sky opens and

about the time the faint stars become visible

my smashed fingertips are useless but

can I possibly become you again?

Only you have the answer to that

 

Even your lies that make me confused are beautiful

Your life is so pure

I feel like I’ll melt to my very bones

I open my eyes to such a damp feeling

 

This was all for your sake

Your life is so pure
