Korean:

지나가더군요 마음이 어떻든 시간은 그렇게 계속 흘러가고
믿기 힘들었던 받아들일 수 없던 그 모든 일들에 익숙해지네요

멍하니 있다 눈물이 흘러 누가 볼까 봐 고갤 떨구고
도망치듯 그 자릴 피하긴 해도
풀려진 신발 끈을 묶으려 주저앉다가 무너져 내려
순간 모든 게 멈춰버리긴 해도 익숙해요

버텨지더군요 고달픈 하루도 어떻게 해서든 또 지나가고

수많은 사람 속에서 들려온 안녕이란 말 그 한마디에
가슴이 덜컥 내려앉는 일에도

아직까지도 너의 말투로 말하는 내가 너무 싫어서
그저 조용히 침묵하는 일에도 익숙하죠

익숙하긴 하지만 여전히 낯설고
버텨지긴 하지만 힘든 건 여전해
놓아버린 듯해도 여전히 손끝에
지워낸 듯하지만 여전히 가득해

멍하니 있다 눈물이 흘러 누가 볼까 봐 고갤 떨구고
도망치듯 그 자릴 피하긴 해도
풀려진 신발 끈을 묶으려 주저앉다가 무너져 내려
순간 모든 게 멈춰버리긴 해도 익숙해요

맘에도 없는 말들로 그렇게 널 떠나보내고
멀어진 뒷모습에 참고 있던 눈물 왈칵 쏟아 내버렸죠

그때 니가 나에게 했던 그 말 아직 기억하는지
또 다른 겨울이 찾아오면 모든 게 다 잊혀질 거라고 했던 그 말

English:

Where did the time go?
Whether your mind keeps
going on or not, time does...
Everything that happened
which used to be unacceptable
and hard to believe
I'm becoming used to

I sit around and the tears flow
afraid someone will see, I let my head fall
I avoid that place like I'm running away but yet
when I plop down to tie my untied shoe
I collapse to the ground
Everything in this moment comes to a halt, yet
I'm used to it

Somehow I've been
making it through the days
Time passes by again looking for something to do

My heart dropping suddenly
from that one word "farewell"
heard among the countless people

And just being silent
because I hate myself still talking
like you after all this time
it's all familiar

It's familiar but still unfamiliar, just like before
I've made it through, yet it's difficult like before
Though I thought I'd left it
it's at the tip of my fingers like before
I thought I'd wiped it out but it's full just like before

I sit around and the tears flow
afraid someone will see, I let my head fall
I avoid that place like I'm running away, yet
when I plop down to tie my untied shoe
I collapse to the ground
Everything in this moment comes to a halt, yet I'm used to it

Sending you away
like that with words I had to fake
At the back of your head getting farther I fought off the need to burst into tears

I wonder if you still
remember what you said to me
those words that when
another winter comes it will all be forgotten
