잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

이루펀트 ~ 생활 속으로 (피쳐링 양다일)

Eluphant, “Invitation (feat. Yang Da Il)”

 

The video already has English subtitles, but they’re just as strange as my own translation. I tried to cobble something sensical together, but sometimes lyrics are art and you’re supposed to cobble your own meaning together. But we’ve all had those days after vacation where we do nothing but long to be back on the road again – or be anywhere but the office. I could write a thesis on the fetishization of foreign cultures through short trips but I’ll save that for another week.

 

 

한국어:

 

눈을 떴을 때의 우드 블라인드 스며 드는 해

물감 칠해 놓은 것 같은 침대로 오면

와이키키 해변이야 나눠 마실까 Big wave

 

Call me ‘Frank’ 내 눈빛은 ocean

Taxi driver MINOS

웃프게 나 빠진 내일은 odd future

그건 나쁜 종교야

모네의 정원도 낡은 고시원

 

이 방은 midnight in Paris

스노우 글로브 눈 내리는 에펠탑도

이 밤의 생택쥐베리

누운 채 너의 Google Map

별들 비행해봐 또

 

She said ‘You should be stronger than me’

너와의 일상은 wine house야 완전 취해

냄새 뱄지 매일에 이미

But I don’t need a rehab

 

한 번도 본 적 없는 길을 걸어

아무도 우릴 몰라보도록

멀리 오길 잘 한 것 같아

이 도시에 반할 것 같아

 

단지 하루가 흘러갔는데

이렇게 느낌이 많이 다른 게

아쉬운 날 homecoming day

다시 back to the real life

 

산책을 하거나 차를 마시고

책을 보거나 생각에 잠기면

요즘엔 뭔가 텅 빈 것만 같아

지금의 난 누군가 필요한 것 같아

 

최고의 날 12시까지 누워있어

목은 아직 갈라지고

모든 일은 too troublesome

자세를 바꾸면

꿈이 멀리 날아갈 듯해

다시 눈을 감고 구름을 올려놓지 발끝에

 

달콤한 여행이 끝난지 딱 하루 됐어

아직도 펼쳐놓은 지도 역시 방에 있어

낯설었던 언어들을 음미하고

여행의 자잘한 습관이

몸에 스며들 땐 그냥 눈을 감고

 

매일 빠짐없이 해오던 일상의 일에

쭈뼛거리게 될 땐 아직 넌

그 여행을 끝낸 게 아니지

조금 더 거기에 취해있을 필요가 있어

Yeah yeah I miss it

 

널 앞에 두고 내 자랑만

늘어놓는 건 dummy 더미

난 여전히 대충 편하게 걸쳐 입고

도미토리처럼 빽빽하게 적어

낯선 땅 그 어색함은 break it down

하루 속에 니가 더 스며들면 좋겠다

 

한 번도 본 적 없는 길을 걸어

아무도 우릴 몰라보도록

멀리 오길 잘 한 것 같아

이 도시에 반할 것 같아

 

단지 하루가 흘러갔는데

이렇게 느낌이 많이 다른 게

English:

 

When I opened my eyes the sun permeated the wood blinds

It came to the bed, seemingly painted with splotches

It’s Waikiki beach, let’s share a big wave

 

Call me Frank, the “ocean” is the light in my eyes

Taxi driver MINOS

Both funny and sad, tomorrow without me will be an odd future

That’s a bad religion

Even Monet’s garden is an old goshiwon

 

This room is midnight in Paris

Snow in the snowglobe falls on the Eiffel Tower

This night is Saint-Exupéry

Lying down, I try finding you in Google Maps

The stars take flight again

 

She said, “You should be stronger than me.”

My daily life with you is a wine house, I’m totally drunk

The smell has already permeated my everyday life

But I don’t need rehab

 

We walk along a street we’ve never seen before

until nobody recognizes us anymore

I think it’s good if we go far

It seems like we’ve fallen in love with this city

 

Just a single day has passed, but

the feeling is entirely different

Homecoming day is an unfortunate day

Back to the real life again

 

When I take a walk or drink tea

When I read a book or am lost in thought

Lately, it feels like something is missing

I think I need someone now

 

The latest I’ve ever slept is until 12 pm

My throat is still parched and

everything is too troublesome

It seems like if I change my attitude

my dreams will fly far away

I close my eyes again and my toes reach the clouds

 

My sweet vacation ended after a single day

A map is still spread in my room, of course

I appreciate all the strange languages

When the trivial habits of traveling

seep into my body, I just close my eyes

 

[When you start to hesitate

from the daily routine that doesn’t stop]

you still haven’t ended your trip

You still need to be drunk there

Yeah, yeah, I miss it

 

The bragging I go on about in front of you

It’s just stupid, dummy

I just throw on comfortable clothes as always

and sleep in a dorm as crowded as my writing

I break down that awkwardness from a strange land

It would be better if you seeped more into my day

 

We walk along a street we’ve never seen before

until nobody recognizes us anymore

I think it’s good if we go far

It seems like we’ve fallen in love with this city

 

Just a single day has passed, but

the feeling is entirely different

Homecoming day is an unfortunate day

Back to the real life again

 

When I take a walk or drink tea

When I read a book or am lost in thought

Lately, it feels like something is missing

I think I need someone now

 

When I take a walk or drink tea

Lately, it feels like something is missing

I think I need someone now
