잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

이영훈 ~ 불면

 

Lee Young Hoon, “Insomnia”

 

For some reason, this song reminds me of 10cm’s “Goodnight.” Something about the tone, the simple acoustic guitar, the soothing vocals. They’re complete opposites, though; “Goodnight” is more about sleeping off your sorrow, and “Insomnia” is, well, about not being able to sleep because of sorrow.

 

 

한국어:

 

생각 없는 밤 쉽지 않은 마음

이해할 수 없는 너의 말을

되뇌이는 밤 알 수 없는 마음

설명할 수 없는 너를 향한

나의 오랜 그리움 같은 말이 없는 밤

좀처럼… 잠이 오지 않는…

 

습관처럼 너를 기다리는 밤

혹시 네가 다시 돌아오지 않을까 하며

한참을 바라보던 거리에는

나의 괜한 마음을 달래주 듯

어느새 조금씩

 

별일 없이 나를 지나가는 밤

아무래도 나아지지 않는 불안한 마음은

언제쯤이면 다 사라지려나

다 사라지려나

 

어느새 조금씩

비가 내려

텅 빈 나의 오늘을

외롭지 않게 하는 비가 내려

부끄러운 나의 어제를

변명할 수 있게 하는 비가 내려

 

 

English:

 

A thoughtless night, a difficult heart

I can’t understand your words

A repetitive night, an unknowable heart

I can’t explain why I’m drawn to you

A night when I can’t say how long I’ve yearned

Sleep… hardly ever comes…

 

A night when I wait for you out of habit

As I wonder if you might not come back

I stare at the road for quite some time

It seems like my useless heart will be soothed

Without realizing it, little by little

 

A night that passes without incident

My uneasy heart seems like it won’t heal no matter what

At some point, it will disappear completely

It seems like it will disappear completely

 

Without realizing it, little by little,

rain begins to fall

[Rain that makes my empty days

less lonely begins to fall]

[Rain that makes it possible to

explain my embarrassing past falls]
