사람또사람 ~ 리셋버튼

People and People, “Reset Button”

 

 

Sometimes the world just becomes too much and it feels like life just needs a quick reset. RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS. If only life were as simple as a PC. But it’s not that simple, whether fortunately or unfortunately, and instead songs like this exist for when we just can’t handle things anymore.

 

The video is adorable, and People and People said it was modelled after Mr. Children’s “Kurumi,” a moving music video in its own right (seriously, watch it if you have a moment). But Mr. Children’s is a metaphoric time travel whereas People and People’s is literal. In the video, the old man regrets not fixing the television for his wife so he makes a time machine so he can go back and fix it for her. It’s the little things. I translated the dialogue to help tell the story of the video as well:

 

 

At the beginning (with subtitles):

 

Friend: Oh boss, you’re here? I guess there aren’t a lot of customers lately. What are you working on so hard there?

Old man: Time machine.

 

At the end:

 

Wife: Oh, the TV is working!

Old man: I fixed it!

Wife: Oh, what’s the occasion? I always told you to fix it but you just kept singing songs and saying you’re busy and never fixed it!

 

 

한국어:

 

이렇게 머리가 복잡할 땐

모든 걸 그냥 슬쩍 미뤄버리고

인생의 리셋버튼이라도 눌러버리고 싶어

 

아까 쏟아버렸던 그 말도

정말 부끄러웠던 그 행동도

내가 잘못됐다는 그 마음까지도

이제는 모르겠어

 

어쩌면 우린 막다른 골목에서

길을 잃고 겁을 먹고 눈물 흘리지만

이 밤이 지나 아침이 밝아오면

 

이렇게 세상이 복잡할 땐

모든 걸 그냥 슬쩍 지워버리고

마음의 리셋버튼이라도 눌러버리고 싶어

 

정말 해답이라곤 보이진 않고

흔한 희망이라곤 너무 아련하지만

터프하게 정말 터프하게 눌러버리고 싶어

 

어쩌면 우린 막다른 골목에서

흔들리고 쓰러지고 주저앉겠지만

이 밤이 지나 아침이 밝아오면

 

어쩌면 우린 막다른 골목에서

길을 잃고 겁을 먹고 눈물 흘리지만

이 밤이 지나 아침이 밝아오면

 

어쩌면 우린 막다른 골목에서

흔들리고 쓰러지고 주저앉겠지만

이 밤이 지나 아침이 밝아오면

 

 

English:

 

When my mind is this confused,

I just want to push everything off a bit

I just want to push life’s reset button

 

Even those words that spilled out earlier

Even those really embarrassing actions

Even the feeling that I’ve done something wrong

I just don’t know anymore

 

Maybe we’re at a dead end alley

We’ve lost the way, we’re scared and crying, but

the night will pass and bright morning will come

 

When the world is this complicated,

I just want to furtively erase everything

I just want to push my heart’s reset button

 

I really don’t see anything that could be called an answer

Anything that might be called ordinary hope is just too faint

but I want to be tough, really tough and push that button

 

Maybe we’re in a dead end alley

We waver and break down and collapse, but

this night will pass and bright morning will come

 

Maybe we’re at a dead end alley

We’ve lost the way, we’re scared and crying, but

the night will pass and bright morning will come

 

Maybe we’re in a dead end alley

We waver and break down and collapse, but

this night will pass and bright morning will come
