Butterfly [나비]

Butterfly, from Boohwal’s 11th Album “Love”, released in 2006. Another song where you can hear the voice of Boohwal’s leader Kim Tae-Won. The first half up to “good bye” part is sung by Kim Tae-Won himself, and the latter half by Jeong Dong-Ha. The song is written and composed by Kim Tae-Won.

In one of the talk shows, I remember he told the story of writing this song. As you might already know, Kim Tae-Won lives in Korea while his wife lives in the Philippines, so they visit each other often. Although, Kim Tae-Won doesn’t like to see his wife off to the airport coz he thinks that’s too sad (oh, yes, he is a man of tears:). So one day, after saying good bye to her in his apartment, he sat alone and saw an insect flying in. He thought it was a butterfly and that’s how he was inspired to write this song. (but in the talk show we discovered that it was not at all a butterfly.. ^^;)

창을 열어 놓으면 나비가 들어오고 (if you let the windows open, butterfly will come in)
홀로이던 내 방이 순간 들이 되고 (I was alone in my room, suddenly there’s two of us)
언제부턴가 시작한 그림이 없는 종이에 (I don’t know since when, on a paper without any pictures on it)
그 무언가를 그리고 칠을 해 간다네 (drawing something, painting..)
난다..  난다..  난다 .. (flying… flying… flying…)
Good bye… Good bye… Good bye…
어느 작은 섬에서 홀로 등대를 켜고 (on a small island, turning on the lighthouse)
지나는 배를 멀리 보며 어떤 그리움을 지우려고 (looking at the passing ship from afar, trying to let go some yearning)
많이 생각이 나는 자꾸 생각이 나는 (comes to my mind a lot, comes to my mind often)
어떤 시간을 이젠 멀리 등대를 스치며 지나는 배처럼 (like the ship now far passing the lighthouse, one time)
보라빛이 물든 바다 (the sea faded by a purple light)
항상 굽이 다가올 차가운 바다지만 (although it’s a cold sea which bottom’s always coming closer)
사랑해요 사랑해요 나비가 날아가듯 (I love you, I love you, the butterfly seems like flying)
마치 바다 위로 나비가 날아가듯 (just happens the butterfly seems like flying above the sea)
저 바다로 (to that sea)
