This song has been around for a while. Thanks to you’re beautiful, now I appreciate Lee Hong Ki (이홍기) more than before. His band, FT Island, recently came out with new album FT Island Vol.3 Cross and Change, with title song I Hope (바래).

The concept of the song is a fresh return to the past concept and the lyrics has an awesome lyrics. It has a strong meaning that support the fast and strong Rock beats on this song.

Lyrics of it:

Verse 1>
하루가 지나고 한달이 지나도
너에게 연락이 오지를 않았어
눈물이 흘러 가슴이 아파
아니야 잠시뿐야 아닐거야 아닐거야
아닐거야 나를 달래지 마
니가 떠난 빈 자리만 커져 가

Sabi>
너를 다시 봐도 넌 넌 내 사랑
수백번 봐도 난 난 네 사랑
하늘이 맺어준 넌 내 사랑
니가 잠시 길을 잃은 것 뿐이야
다시 태어나도 너만 바래
다시 사랑해도 너만 바래
돌아올거야 돌아올거야
니가 없는 나는 없으니까

Rap1>
날 사랑한다 해놓고 도대체 어디로 떠난거야
나를 버리고 잡은 내 두 손까지도
우리 약속까지도 나 버리고 깨버리고 어떻게 떠나

Verse2>
꿈일거야 꿈일거야 꿈일거야 나를 속이지 마
나만 혼자 남겨진 게 서러워

Sabi>
너를 다시 봐도 넌 넌 내 사랑
수백번 봐도 난 난 네 사랑
하늘이 맺어준 넌 내 사랑
니가 잠시 길을 잃은 것 뿐이야
다시 태어나도 너만 바래
다시 사랑해도 너만 바래
돌아올거야 돌아올거야
니가 없는 나는 없으니까

Bridge>
이 모든 게 악몽일거라 난 생각했어
아- 제발 이 꿈에서 깨기만 바래

Rap2>
오늘이 지나고 내일 또 눈 뜨면
이 모든 게 현실이 아닌 꿈이길 바래 Oh
모든 게 현실보다 더 미워했던 꿈이였길
나는 바래 널 바래 아직도 너를 원해

Sabi’>
다시 돌아봐도 넌 넌 내 사랑
수천번 봐도 난 난 네 사랑
하늘이 허락한 넌 내 사랑
우린 잠시 멀어졌던 것 뿐이야
다른 여잘 봐도 너만 바래
다른 사랑해도 너만 바래
돌아올거야 돌아올거야
내가 없는 너는 없으니까

Rap3>
난 매일 밤 기도해 내 행복 아닌 불행을 위해
넌 내가 아닌 다른 사랑 못하게
난 너 아니면 안 돼 내 심장이 널 말해
나는 변함 없어 다시 태어나도 너만 바래

Sabi’>
다시 태어나도 너만 바래 다시 사랑해도 너만 바래
돌아올꺼야 돌아올꺼야 니가 없는 나는 없으니까

The translation of the song is this:

Days went by, months went by
But there was no contact from you
Tears fall, my heart aches
No, it’s only for a moment
It’s not, it’s not, it’s not
Only to appease me but
The space you left only gets bigger

Even if I look at you again, you’re you’re my love
Look at it a hundred times, I’m I’m you’re love
You’re my love that heaven made
You only lost your way for a moment
Even if I’m born again, I only hope for you
Even if I love again, I only hope for you
You will return, you will return
Because there’s no me without you

After saying you love me
Where exactly did you run off to?
Leaving me (Oh oh oh oh oh)
My two hands you held and also our promise
How can you leave, abandoning me?

It’s a dream, it’s a dream, it’s a dream
I trick myself
It’s sad that I’m by myself

Even if I look at you again, you’re you’re my love
Look at it a hundred times, I’m I’m you’re love
You’re my love that heaven made
You only lost your way for a moment
Even if I’m born again, I only hope for you
Even if I love again, I only hope for you
You will return, you will return
Because there’s no me without you

I thought that all this was only a nightmare
I hope that I will wake up from this dream

After today passes and I open my eyes tommorow
I hope that this dream is not reality, oh
That all this is a hateful dream, not reality
I hope, I hope for you
I still want you

Even if I look at you again, you’re you’re my love
Look at it a hundred times, I’m I’m you’re love
You’re my love that heaven allowed
You only lost your way for a moment
Even if I’m born again, I only hope for you
Even if I love again, I only hope for you
You will return, you will return
Because there’s no you without me

I pray every night
For my misery, not my happiness
That you won’t love any other than me
It can’t be anyone other than you
My heart only asks for you
It will never change
Even if I am born again, I hope for you

Even if I’m born again, I only hope for you
Even if I love again, I only hope for you
You will return, you will return
Because There’s no me without you

1:59 PM – Heartbeat MV November 10, 2009

After done watching the Heartbeat MV from 1:59 PM, I really can’t find the exact word how to describe my feeling. The MV has been filled with dark images (snake, fire, blood (?), dark make ups, expressions, and it even ended up with Wooyoung’s soul fled from his body. So different than their cheerful Beast side selves that they have been portrayed all of these while. To a certain extent, I think it’s a good thing that they’re growing their talent by taking a risk for portraying different images. In which, they’re pretty successful in creating this new image.

For the song itself, I don’t know if you listened to 1:59PM first album, but there’s another version for this song. It’s the Heartbeat – Red Light Mix. You can hear the song below:

It’s not as “dark” as the actual version of Heartbeat. It has more melody and electronic mix in the background, which makes it less depressing than the actual version.  I should put two thumbs up for the actual version because this is the first time I heard someone mixed the actual human heartbeat + drum beat + violin + orchestra, and they’re doing a good job that, it deserves a nod in the head.

On the other side, I can tell that they’re really focusing on Wooyoung this time. I’ve been an avid fan of Wooyoung and never really find any MV / performance in Inkigayo/Music Bank/Music Core that focuses on him as much as this MV. He never really been “in the spotlight” for any choreographs. He usually stands on the end (left/right) or slightly in the middle, but never really been in the middle. In the other MV, usually Jaebum is the one doing the ad lib with Junsu while in this MV, Wooyoung is the one whose doing the ad lib with Junsu. Probably it’s only my imagination without any solid proofs. And… why did they make Taecyon’s hair white? (even though, it slightly better than Kangin’s head over It’s you era). Hopefully on the actual performance, there will be no white hair showing in any of the member’s head.

I don’t really know what’s the new deal or the real deal for 1:59PM, but it’s certainly not wrong to appreciate the music rather than focusing on the facts.

Below is the lyrics and translation for the song itself. Thanks to yeeun2grace.com for this.

Album: 1:59PM, 1st Full Album
Release Date: November 7th, 2009
Lyrics

Can you feel my heartbeat?
Heartbeat
Heartbeat
니가 짓밟고 떠난 심장이
아직도 뛰고 있어
그것도 너를 향해

잊으려고 아무리 노력해봐도
새로운 사람들을 아무리 만나봐도
계속 다시 또 다시
돌아서면 왜 니 생각만 나는지
안 할래 그만할래
아무리 내 자신을 달래고 또 달래봐도
아무 소용이 없어
내 심장이 고장나 버렸어 왜

왜 아직도 나는
이런 바보 같은 짓을 하는지
머리론 알겠는데
가슴은 왜 지 맘대론지
너를 잡고 놓지를 못 해
지금도 니가 나의 곁에 있는 것 같애
이별을 믿지 못 해

누굴 만나도
마음 속 한 곳은
열지 못 하고 계속
니 자릴 비워놔
올 리가 없는데
올지도 모른다고
왜 믿는지 가슴이
왜 말을 안 듣니

Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
끝났다는 걸 아직도 몰라
왜 이러는지 이해가 안 가
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
너의 생각에 아직도 아파
가슴이 뛸 때마다 생각 나

잊어야 해 잊어야 살 수 있어
지워 버려야만 해
안 그러면 내가 죽어
Stop trying to get her back
She ain’t coming
She’s gone
Gotta be moving on
갔어 오지 않아
그녀는 니 생각 하지 않아

그녀는 내가 기다리는 걸
전혀 모른 채 잘 살고 있어
그녀는 이미 날 잊었어
완전히 지웠어
왜 나는 그렇게 못 하니

Listen to my Heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my Heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
끝났다는 걸 아직도 몰라
왜 이러는지 이해가 안 가
Listen to my Heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my Heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
너의 생각에 아직도 아파
가슴이 뛸 때 마다 생각 나

My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster

Translation

Can you feel my heartbeat?
Heartbeat
Heartbeat
The heart you stomped on and left
is still beating.
It still beats…for you.

No matter how hard I try to forget
No matter how many new people I meet
I don’t know why again and again
I turn around and think of you.
“I don’t want to. I want to stop!”
No matter how much I plead with myself
It’s all useless.
Why? Is my heart broken?

Why do I still
do these foolish things?
My head knows it’s stupid
but my heart does whatever it wants.
I can’t let you go
I still feel like you’re next to me
I can’t believe we’re over.

No matter who I meet,
A corner of my heart
is closed off and will always
be reserved for you.
There is no way you’ll come back
but I continue to think that you might
Why do I still believe this?
Why won’t my heart listen to me?

Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
It doesn’t know its over
I don’t understand why it’s like this
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
Thoughts of you still pain me
But with every heartbeat I remember.

I have to forget, I can’t live while remembering
I have to erase her
If I don’t I’ll die.
Stop trying to get her back
She ain’t coming
She’s gone
Gotta be moving on
She’s gone and won’t be coming back
She doesn’t think about me at all.

She has no idea that I’m waiting for her
and is living her life just fine.
She’s already forgotten me
Completely erased me
So why can’t I do the same?

Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
It doesn’t know its over
I don’t understand why it’s like this
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s beating for you
Listen to my heartbeat
It’s waiting for you
Thoughts of you still pain me
But with every heartbeat I remember.

My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster
My heart is beating
Faster and faster

It’s still in Low Quality but for those of you who haven’t seen it, please see it. I love the way they “paint” the lyrics into the PV. I think it’s brilliant. The monotone colors and the colorful walls. I think they did a good job in shooting the PV.

If you need to get the translation, you can read it in my previous post. ^^
