데이즈 ~ Friday

Daze, “Friday”

 

I contemplated uploading this translation on Friday but concluded it would be way too depressing since it’s such an accurate reflection of my life. Here’s to hoping my friends’ plans to get together are less ambiguous than Daze’s!

 

(P.S. My favorite part is when he says “하나 둘씩” but I repeatedly mishear it as “하나 둘 shit” and also when he says he wants to walk the streets of Itaewon but is clearly in London in the music video.)

 

 

한국어:

 

눈 감았다가 떠보니까

좀 몽롱한 기분

아메리카노 한잔을 마실까

또 잠이오기전에

사람들은 뭔가 분주한것만 같아

하나둘씩 눈앞에서 사라져만 가는데

 

왠지모르게 오늘 따라

이태원 거리가 걷고싶어

너에게 연락을 해볼까?

이렇다 저렇다 할 핑계가

도무지 생각이 나질 않어

결국에 나혼자서 보내

 

금요일 뭔가 일어날것만 같던

금요일 너와 밤길을걷고싶어

금요일 뭔가 일어나길 바랬던

금요일 오늘밤 하루만 이라도

 

시계를 쳐다보니까 벌써 여덟시야

친구들 불러내기가 조금 애매한시간

밤이 조금씩 깊어가는데

설레는 마음은 커져가네

혹시나 하는 생각에

 

잠 못 이룰 것 같은 밤

나 혼자서  니 생각으로 가득 차있네

그러다보면 또 어느새

시간이 벌써 지나있네

오늘따라 외롭게 느껴지는 밤

 

금요일 뭔가 일어날것만 같던

금요일 너와 밤길을 걷고 싶어

금요일 뭔가 일어나길 바랬던

금요일 오늘밤 하루만 이라도

 

몸이 좀 가벼워지는 느낌

달빛이 나를 비추네

너의 생각에 잠길 때

 

집으로 향하는 발걸음이

조금씩 무거워지네

따듯한 밤공기 속에

 

금요일 뭔가 일어날것만 같던

금요일 너와 밤길을 걷고 싶어

금요일 뭔가 일어나길 바랬던

금요일 오늘밤 하루만 이라도

 

 

English:

 

I close my eyes and think things through

so things feel a little vague

How about a cup of coffee

before we go to sleep again?

Everybody else seems so busy

[They just keep disappearing

before my very eyes, one by one]

 

I don’t really know why, but today of all days

I want to walk around the streets of Itaewon

Should I try calling you?

I use this and that excuse

but I can’t stop thinking about you

Ultimately I spend the time alone

 

It seemed like something would come of Friday

I wanted to walk the night streets with you on Friday

I had hoped something would come of Friday

Friday, tonight, if only for one night…

 

I’m staring at the clock and it’s already 8 PM

My friends call me out at some unspecific time

The night slowly grows deeper

My fluttering heart is growing

at the thought of possibilities

 

I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight

Alone, I can’t stop thinking about you

If you look at it that way, without realizing it,

the time has already passing

Tonight I feel especially lonely

 

It seemed like something would come of Friday

I wanted to walk the night streets with you on Friday

I had hoped something would come of Friday

Friday, tonight, if only for one night…

 

My body feels a little light

The moonlight illuminates me

when I think about you

 

My footsteps toward home

slowly grow heavy

in the warm night air

 

It seemed like something would come of Friday

I wanted to walk the night streets with you on Friday

I had hoped something would come of Friday

Friday, tonight, if only for one night…
