민채 ~ 라따따

Minchae, “Latata”

 

I don’t have a computer at home, so I never upload translations over the weekend. There have been multiple occasions when there was no translation for a song on Friday, so I went home to translate it over the weekend… only to come back on Monday to find an official translation has already been uploaded! Of course, I always benefit from the practice, and it’s nice to check that my translations are on track every once in a while, but I would generally prefer to practice with songs that don’t already have a translation. Makes me feel like I wasted my time. But Minchae’s “Latata” is so calming, the sort of calm that comes after the realization of what went wrong in a relationship and an understanding of how to heal, so I wanted to share anyway.

 

 

한국어:

 

거울 속의 나를 봐

길어진 머릴 자르고 싶어

얼마나 많은 것들을

내 안에 가득 담아두었었나

 

스따따라 라라라

따아 라따따라 라라라

 

너는 긴 머리가 어울려

수없이 너에게 들었던 얘기

어느샌가 나도 모르게

너의 말에 갇혀있었어

도대체 난 누구를 위해서 살아온 거야?

 

스따따라 라라라

따아 라따따라 라라라

 

깊은 잠에서 깨어

나의 마음속에 있는 소리를 들어봐

흐트러진 마음을 감싸 안을 때까지

 

이제서야 알았어

나를 가둬온 건

누구도 아닌 나란 걸

탁해진 내 마음을

모두 잘라낼 거야

 

스따따라 라라라

따아 라따따라 라라라

 

 

English:

 

I look at myself in the mirror

I want to cut my long hair

There were so many things

shut up inside of me

 

Statatala lalala

da ah latatala la la la

 

You said my long hair suited me

I endlessly heard that sort of stuff from you

At some point, without even realizing it,

I became locked up in your words

Exactly who am I living for?

 

Statatala lalala

da ah latatala la la la

 

I awake from a deep sleep

Listen to the sound deep in my heart

until my messed up heart is embraced

 

I get it now

What shut me away

wasn’t anybody but myself

I’ll cut everything out

of my convoluted heart

 

Statatala lalala

da ah latatala la la la
