정혜선 ~ 꿈 속의 꿈

Jeong HyeSeon, “The Dream in Dreams”

 

This song was actually first released in 1995 on Hyeseon’s second album after she won the Yoo Jae Ha Music Competition with another song on the same album, “My Sky.” This song is a reinvention thanks to producer CURIOUS, but to be perfectly honest I think I like the original version better. Strangely enough, the rock sound of the original sounds far less dated than the newer version. Still, the lyrics are as moving as ever for a song released way before Inception was even conceived.

 

 

한국어:

 

꿈 꾸었지 그토록 원하던

근데 이상한 건 눈을 떠보니

또 꿈인 거야 꿈속의 꿈

겹겹이 날 둘러싼 시간 속에

어떻게 난 너를 다시 찾을 수 있을까?

기억 속에 별빛 속에

언제나 나를 바라보고 있는 너

 

아~ 아~ 꿈속의 꿈

 

또 꿈 꾸었지 간절한 마음으로

근데 놀라운 건 눈을 떠 보니

네가 온 거야 꿈이 아닌 걸

겹겹이 날 둘러싼, 환상 속에

이렇게 다시 너를 만날 수 있다니

진심이야 이제는 나

영원히 너를 떠나-지 않겠어

 

아~ 아~ 꿈속의 꿈

나 나 나 나 나~

꿈 속의 꿈, 꿈 속의 꿈

 

겹겹이 날 둘러싼 시간 속에

어떻게 난 너를 다시 찾을 수 있을까?

기억 속에 별빛 속에

언제나 나를 바라보고 있는 너

 

아~ 아~ 꿈속의 꿈

 

 

English:

 

I wanted you so much I dreamt of you

but the strange thing is, when I opened my eyes,

it was another dream, a dream within a dream

Deep within time, wrapped layer upon layer,

how can I possibly find you again?

In my memory, in the light of the stars,

you are always watching me

 

Ah, ah, a dream within a dream

 

I dreamed again with a heart that longs for you

but the surprising thing is, when I opened my eyes,

you were coming toward me and it wasn’t a dream

Deep within the illusions wrapped layer upon layer,

am I truly able to meet you again like this?

With all my heart, from now on

I will never, ever leave you

 

Ah, ah, a dream within a dream

Na na na na na~

Dream within a dream, dream within a dream

 

Deep within time, wrapped layer upon layer,

how can I possibly find you again?

In my memory, in the light of the stars,

you are always watching me

 

Ah, ah, a dream within a dream
