전기뱀장어 ~ 이별순간

Electric Eels, “Farewell Moment”

 

This was my introduction to Electric Eels. This was the very first time I ever heard any of their music or saw any of their videos. And how could anyone possibly resist the absolute hilarity of this cheeze?! It was inevitable from the very first moment. I learned their music, was terribly disappointed at the Daejeon Cherry Blossom festival, but finally fought my way to the front for their performance at Greenplugged – drummer Minhyuk’s last performance. And what luck that they had a signing event as well!

But I can honestly say that, of all the fans I’ve ever encountered, Electric Eels fans are the BEST, most friendly and considerate fans! After the whole fiasco of the signing event (You need a ticket? Where do you get a ticket? You have to stand in line? What line? Even Korean fans couldn’t figure out that particular clusterfuck), they made sure that I both got a picture and my album signed, but also went out of their way to make me feel included and welcome. I know I couldn’t possibly have thanked them enough, so I hope to one day see them again and thank them even more. Valley Rock, possibly? ^^

In the meantime, translating is the only possible way I can give back even a fraction of what I’ve received from this band.

 

전기뱀장어 그

 

한국어:

 

네게는 보이지 않던 사랑의 증명

아픈 내 맘으로 대신할 수 있겠네

마주선 너의 치마엔 내 맘을 모르는

꽃송이들 어지럽게 피어 있었고

 

끝난 영활 다시 한번 본다고 해도

똑같은 결말 일 텐데

이젠 돌아서기만 하면 되는데

너는 후횐 없냐고

 

정말 딱 한번만 그 때로

돌아가게 된다면

너는 내게 무슨 말을 할 건데

다시 그런 순간이 오면

 

나는 너의 손을 잡으며

아직 널 좋아한다고

이제 여기 마지막이 될 나의 시작을

네가 함께 했으면

그렇게 말할 거야

 

나보다 잘 지내길

바라는 내 못난 마음 말 못하지만

헤어지는 너의 모습은 왠지 모르게

내가 알던 너보다 더 행복해 보여

 

정말 딱 한번만 그 때로

돌아가게 된다면

너는 내게 무슨 말을 할 건데

다시 그런 순간이 오면

 

나는 너의 손을 잡으며

아직 널 좋아한다고

이제 여기 마지막이 될 나의 시작을

네가 함께 했으면

그렇게 난 말할 거야

 

 

English:

 

You couldn’t see evidence of my love

Instead, I can show you my hurting heart

The blossoms on your skirt didn’t know how I felt

They were blooming dizzily in front of me

 

Even if you watch the same movie again,

the ending is still exactly the same

If only I could go back in time now

I would ask you if you have no regrets

 

If only for just once,

if I could go back to that time,

what would you say to me

if that moment came back again?

 

As I held your hand,

I would say that I still like you

Now my last beginning is here

if I could spend it with you

That’s what I would say

 

I hope you’re doing better than me

Although I can’t say what my poor heart is hoping for

I don’ really know why, but after breaking up

you look better than when I knew you

 

If only for just once,

if I could go back to that time,

what would you say to me

if that moment came back again?

 

As I held your hand,

I would say that I still like you

Now my last beginning is here

if I could spend it with you

That’s what I would say
