잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

클래디 ~ 허전함 (피쳐링 릭브릿지스)

ClaD, “Emptiness (feat. Rick Bridges)”

 

It’s been a while since I’ve had the motivation to translate. Life’s been busy and I haven’t found a huge number of songs I’m desperate to translate. But between having already translated half this song and encouragement from people both online and in real life, I might have pulled myself one step out of a slump. I’m not free yet, but in the meantime, here is an awesome song.

It’s title can be translated either as “loneliness” or “emptiness,” but the former is often romanticized whereas this song is a little brusque so I went with the latter. It’s a solid R&B track that I often listen to in tandem with NiiHwa’s “Can’t Stop,” and the simplicity of the music video belies the remarkable quality of the track. Rick Bridges also feels like he’s a giant snowball one push away from being on a roll. It’ll be interesting to see how these two’s careers develop.

 

 

한국어:

 

나의 허전함이 우릴 만드네

네가 질렸나 봐

나는 다른 사람이 눈에 들어 올 거야 내가

하늘에서 비춘 달이 되면 너가

우산을 쓰네

그런 날이 됐나 봐

 

네가 날 거부하는 날

난 날 미워할 거야

너무 다른 사람 된 날

매일 매일 지워낼 거야

 

Time is run away, run away

우리 다른 사람 될까

너의 빈말이라면

다시 우리 사이 저 멀리

 

허전함이 둘 허전함이 둘

허전함이 둘을 바라보네

허전함이 둘 허전함이 둘

허전함이 둘을 바라보네

 

난 네 주변을 돌지

내 맘을 들킬까 봐서

내게 연락이 없는

이걸 안심하며 한숨 쉬네

하루를 벌며 사는 꼴이 지겨울 뿐이야

내가 가진 너의 맘이 너무 작아졌네

 

내가 널 거부하는 날

넌 날 미워할 거야

너무 다른 사람 된 날

매일 매일 지워낼 거야

 

Time is run away, run away

우리 다른 사람 될까

네가 정해준다면

다시 우리 사이 저 멀리

 

허전함이 둘 허전함이 둘

허전함이 둘을 바라보네

허전함이 둘 허전함이 둘

허전함이 둘을 바라보네

 

네가 없는 이 차가운 밤이 나를 밀쳐

너에게 가라고 하는 듯한데 멀리 저

 

허전함이 둘 허전함이 둘

허전함이 둘을 바라보네

 

I don’t know what it is

허전하긴 해도 I don’t care

내 옆에 앉아있던 너의 빈자리를

메꾸는 일은 전혀 어렵지 않아

Oh well I’m fine

 

괜한 말이 아니라 난 잘 살아

너의 착각과는 달리

잠이 들기 전에 드는 생각 중

너가 차지하는 건 nothin

 

네 머릿속엔 늘 high price dresses

Fuckin scandal, I was abandoned

그런 쓸데없는 생각들에

You be the gold digger friend, yo

 

여전히 기억하네 새벽 두 시반

웃기지도 않아 잠을 자야겠다던

너는 클럽 안에서fuck around and ’round and ’round and ’round

 

I know you got that beautiful face

I know you got that seductive ass

I know you got that, I know you got that

I know you got that nuthin

 

너가 손에 쥐고 있는 것들은

모두 껍데기뿐이라는 걸 알아채길 바래

그때 너의 표정을 보고 싶어 애처로운 마음으로

너에 대한 가사를 써 내려가네 so good, ho

 

허전함이 허전함이 허전함이

허전함이 허전함이 허전함이 허전함이

 

 

English:

 

We were made by my loneliness

I guess I’ve grown tired of you

It seems like I’m looking for someone else

If you become the brilliant moon in the sky,

I’ll use an umbrella

It seems like that sort of day has come

 

The day you reject me

is the day I’ll hate myself

The day we become too different

is a day I’ll always try to get out of my head

 

Time is running away, running away

Will we become different people?

When you say empty words,

we just keep drifting further apart

 

Two empty people, two empty people

Two empty people stare at each other

Two empty people, two empty people

Two empty people stare at each other

 

I hang out around you

I’m scared you’ll find out how I feel

but you don’t call me so

I breathe a sigh of relief

I’m sick of living day to day

Your heart that I held has become too small

 

The day I reject you

is the day you’ll hate me

The day we become too different

is a day I’ll always try to get out of my head

 

Time is running away, running away

Will we become different people?

When you make up your mind,

we just grow further apart again

 

Two empty people, two empty people

Two empty people stare at each other

Two empty people, two empty people

Two empty people stare at each other

 

This cold night without you shoves me away

It seems to say I should go to you but you’re so far away

 

Two empty people, two empty people

Two empty people stare at each other

 

I don’t know what it is

This loneliness or whatever, I don’t care

The empty space you left by my side

filling it won’t be difficult at all

Oh well, I’m fine

 

I’m not just saying that, I’m living well,

which is different from your delusions

Of all the things I think about before I sleep,

you’re not one of them, nothing

 

The only thoughts in your head are high-priced dresses,

fucking scandals, I was abandoned

Those kind of useless thoughts

You be the gold digger friend, yo

 

I guess you still remember at 2:30 AM

It’s not even funny, you’d say you’d better sleep

but you’d fuck around and ’round and ’round and ’round in the club

 

I know you got that beautiful face

I know you got that seductive ass

I know you got that, I know you got that

I know you got that nothin

 

[Everything you’re holding in your hands

is merely empty shells, I hope you learn that]

I want to see your expression then, I’m intrigued

I’ll write down great lyrics for you

 

Emptiness, emptiness, emptiness, I feel so good tho

Emptiness, emptiness, emptiness, emptiness
