Danpyunsun and the Sailors, “Love Song”

 

I always kind of dismissed Danpyunsun and the Sailors because, having grown up with major folkies for parents, dragged around to every folkie festival in the area, I was just not that into Danpyunsun’s experimental folk-pop sound. But I always give things a try, and for some reason, this song reeled me in. And then I went back and listened to their other stuff again and liked it a bit more than I remember having liked it. So here’s the first translation of what might turn out to be a series of Danpyunsun translations for a chill, folk festival vibe.

 

 

한국어:

 

어울리지요?

눈을 감고 말해봐요

당신이 원하는 것

원하지 않는 것

이제는 준비가 됐어

 

이유도 없이 비가 내려

흠뻑 젖어 울었죠

시간이 참 쏜살같아요

우리 같이 걸어가요

 

호호호 웃는 벌레들

이 손을 놓지 마

호호호 웃는 벌레들

걸음걸음 마다

호호호 웃는 사람들

 

우울한가요?

우리 잠깐 바람 좀 쐬고 올까요?

조금은 멈춰 서도 괜찮아

가만히 라도 난 좋아

 

어제는 밤새

끝없이 아래로 떨어졌어요

붙잡지 못해 미안한 마음

나는 두려워 내가

 

호호호 웃는 벌레들

호호호 웃는 사람들

이 손을 놓지 마

호호호 웃는 벌레들

걸음걸음 마다

호호호 웃는 사람들

 

 

English:

 

We suit each other, don’t we?

Close your eyes and tell me

(Tell me) what you want

(Tell me) what you don’t want

Now we’re all prepared

 

Rain falls without reason

You got quite soaked and cried

Time flies swift like an arrow

Let’s go for a walk together

 

Ho ho ho, the bugs are laughing

Don’t let go of this hand

Ho ho ho, the bugs are laughing

Every single step

Ho ho ho, the people are laughing

 

Is it too gloomy?

Shall we go get a bit of fresh air?

It’s ok if we just stand still for a while

I like being still, too

 

All night last night

You kept falling down

I’m sorry I couldn’t grab you

I’m scared, as well

 

Ho ho ho, the bugs are laughing

Ho ho ho, the people are laughing

Don’t let go of this hand

Ho ho ho, the bugs are laughing

Every single step

Ho ho ho, the people are laughing
