잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

B JYUN. ~ Aboutime

B JYUN. ~ Aboutime

 

B JYUN., “Aboutime”

 

I love getting requests because it exposes me to new music I might not have heard otherwise. A while back, I translated a B JYUN song I randomly ran across on YouTube, but I didn’t look into any of his other stuff, which was a big mistake because it meant I missed out on this jam.

The beat is the solid bop “Milk” by starRo, and B JYUN layers his chill R&B on top. He also samples dialogue from the movie About Time, which the title is obviously modeled after (albeit confusingly so, because he has also featured in songs called “Time” and “Time Machine,” as well as released a song called “TIME IS BURNIN’ OUT!” ). The movie is about a man who has the ability to turn back time, and the dialogue comes from an interesting scene that takes place completely in the dark. I actually haven’t seen the film yet, and since it sounded interesting and I didn’t want to spoil it for myself, I decided not to see how connected the movie and song were.

But even just taken at face value, the song is definitely a great way to commiserate over losing a relationship that used to be held dear. While the man in “About Time” is able to turn back time, most of us aren’t and we’re simply left with our memories.

 

 

한국어:

 

어제까지도 우리는 같이 있었고

이제는 니가 떠나도

I don’t care about it all

umm 어제까지도 우리는 같이 있었고

이제는 네가 떠나도

I don’t care bout it all

 

어젯밤과 함께 떠나갔던 안개

넌 나를 전혀 바라보지 않잖아

우리 둘 사이 관계는 깊지 않아

관계는 깊지 않아 보이는 거 알잖아

 

팔짱을 끼지 않고 걷기로 해

억지로 웃음 짓지 않기로 해

조금만 떨어져서 걷기로 해

 

나를 바보처럼 바라보던 날도

우리가 별명을 부르던 그 날도

둘이 여기저기 돌아다닌 날도

우리가 모자를 맞췄던 날도

 

이제 없으니까

그럴 일 없으니까

이제 없으니까

 

oh can i rewindin it the memorys?

how can i rewindin it the memorys?

no,can’t i rewindin it the memorys.

i know i can’t rewindin it the memorys.

 

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두 다

 

oh can i rewindin it the memorys?

how can i rewindin it the memorys?

no,can’t i rewindin it the memorys.

i know i can’t rewindin it the memorys.

 

우린 영화보다 로맨틱하게 만났어도

내겐 주인공과 같은 능력은 없어

너를 내려보는 나를  나를 내려보는 너를

다시 되돌리는 방법은 잘 모르겠어

 

내가 어려서 인지 니가 어려서 인지

따지는 것도난 지겨워

내가 어려서 인지 니가 어려서 인지

차라리 내가 어린걸로 해

 

우리는 많은 시간을 함께했어

남들이 못해본 걸 우린 함께 즐겼어

억울하지 않아 그 무엇보다 값진

시간이 내게 알려주는 충고를 듣지

 

되감기 버튼은 없어

몇 장의 사진으로 남아 어서

우리가 함께했던 시간을

그 잊지 못할 시간은

몇 장의 사진으로 남아 어서

 

oh can i rewindin it the memorys?

how can i rewindin it the memorys?

no,can’t i rewindin it the memorys.

i know i can’t rewindin it the memorys.

 

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두

흘러간 시간 기억 모두 다

 

oh can i rewindin it the memorys?

how can i rewindin it the memorys?

no,can’t i rewindin it the memorys.

i know i can’t rewindin it the memorys.

 

 

English:

 

We were together just yesterday

but even if you left then

I don’t care about it at all

Umm we were together just yesterday

but even if you left then

I don’t care about it at all

 

The fog cleared last night

You never even look at me, do you?

Our relationship isn’t deep

You know our relationship doesn’t look deep

 

We decided we wouldn’t walk arm-in-arm

We decided we wouldn’t smile if we didn’t feel like it

We decided we would walk a little bit apart

 

The days you gazed at me like a goof

and those days we called each other nicknames

and the days we walked all over the place together

and the days we wore matching hats

 

because those days are gone now

because we don’t do that anymore

because those days are gone now

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories

 

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, all of it

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories

 

Even though our meeting was more romantic than a movie,

you don’t have any heroine-like power over me

I look down on you, you look down on me

I don’t really know how to go back again

 

Whether it’s because I’m young or because you’re young

I’m sick of bickering over it

Whether it’s because I’m young or because you’re young

I’d rather just say it’s because I’m young

 

We spent so much time together

We enjoyed doing things others couldn’t even try

[It’s not unfair; I’m listening to the things

that those times, more precious than anything else, taught me]

 

There is no rewind button

They’re quickly being left to remain in a few photos

The times we spent together

Those times I won’t be able to forget

They’re quickly being left to remain in a few photos

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories

 

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, everything

The times gone by, the memories, all of it

 

Oh, can I rewind the memories?

How can I rewind the memories?

No, I can’t rewind the memories

I know I can’t rewind the memories
