[For My Father] 희망에게

The song was inserted in Boohwal’s 10th album, and it was written specially for the father of the writer. Kim Tae-Won’s father was lying sick when he was in the process of writing this song. The title, “희망에게” literally means “To Hope” but it’s retitled as “For My Father” in English. Kim Tae Won’s father is now well and recovered.

The song was composed by Kim Tae Won together with Chae Je Min, and the lyrics written by Kim Tae Won.

모든걸 나 포기할때쯤 그대가 저기 오네요
When I was to give up everything, there you came
있을수 없는 일들이 가끔 일어나지요
Things that wasn’t suppose to happen, they happen.. sometimes
어느땐 힘에겨워도 약해진내가
Even when I feel it’s so hard sometimes.. when I become weaker
나아질때까지 포기하지 마세요
Please don’t give up until you get better

.

그를 사랑해도 되나요
Is it okay if I love him?
모든걸 포기할때쯤
When he’s about to give up everything…
소리없이 지금 다가와
He’s getting closer without sound
날 안아주네요
And he held me..
기적이란 이름 약속하세요
Promise me a miracle
일어설테니
You will definitely stand (back) up
떠나가지말아요
Please don’t leave…

,

누군가가 빌어놓은 소원이 이뤄질테니
The wish that somebody requested will come true, clearly
잠이 든 아이 꿈속에 끝없이 눈이 내리듯
In the dream a child fallen asleep, it seems like snow is falling unstoppable
그리워하던 오늘이
Today that I longed for
지나면 내일이 오듯
If it passes, tomorrow is likely to come..
만나는 그 순간부터 사랑하게 된다는
From the moment we met, I came to love you

.
오늘이 다가올날에 만들어질 추억이면
If it’s a memory to be made on the day coming after today
이젠 난 너의 두 손을 놓아선 않된다는것
I can’t let go of both your hands right now
지금도 만나가겠지 누군가의 어제가 가고
We’ll still be seeing each other from now on, somebody left yesterday
하루가 지나는 일이 언제나 돌아오듯이
Things that passed within a day, will come back .. at any time
영원히
Forever..

1970

This is my current second favorite song by Boohwal. (It used to be my number one before I fell for the new song that’s to be released this Wednesday ^^)

1970, this song was released in the 9th album (2003). The original vocal was 정단 (Jeong Dan).

Composed by 채제민 (Chae Je-Min, drummer) and lyrics by 김태원 (Kim Tae-Won, guitarist/leader).

You can find the lyrics below the video. This video was a recorded session in MTV, from 2007. Vocal by 정동하. ^_^

설레인 당첨금 백만원에 집 한채 사던 시절
The time when I lived in a house bought from winning a million (won^^) prize

차가운 저 아스팔트는 그땐 모래였었지
That cold asphalt (road) was just sand back then

매일 머물던 까만 운동화매장 앞에
In front of the deep-black shoe shore where I hung out everyday,

작은 소원을 빌어보던 아이였었지
(I) was the boy who had a small wish

저 하늘에 수많은 별이 보이고
So many stars seen on that sky

저녁 노을에 아버진 돌아오시네
In the red glow of the sunset, father came home

매일 영원히 파란하늘이 되고
Everyday, always, the sky becomes blue

낮게 날으면 제빈 비를 부르네
Flying low, a swallow calls (for) the rain

세 블록 넘어 매일 지나던 검은 연탄공장이
(I) pass three blocks, (and found)  the black poisonous-gas factory that I used to pass everyday

이젠 알수가 없는 회색빛 빌딩이겠지
Now, it must be (that) building with the unrecognizable ash color

매일 머물던 자전거가게 앞에서
In front of the bicycle store I used to stay everyday,

작은 소원을 빌어보던 아이였었지
(I) was the boy who had a small wish(I) was the boy who had a small wish

* Ref. *

저 하늘에 수많은 별이 보이고
So many stars seen on that sky

저녁 노을에 어머니 날 부르시네
In the red glow of the sunset, mother calls me (home)

매일 영원히 파란하늘이 되고
Everyday, always, the sky becomes blue

낮게 날으면 제빈 비를 비를 부르네
Flying low, a swallow calls (for) the rain.. the rain..
