Korean:

교복을 벗고 처음으로 만났던 너
그 때가 너도 가끔 생각나니
뭐가 그렇게도 좋았었는지 우리들만 있으면

너의 집 데려다주던 길을 걸으며
수줍게 나눴던 많은 꿈
너를 지켜주겠다던 다짐 속에
그렇게 몇해는 지나

너의 새 남자친구 얘길 들었지
나 제대하기 얼마 전
이해했던 만큼 미움도 커졌었지만

오늘 난 감사드렸어
몇 해 지나 얼핏 너를 봤을 때
누군가 널 그토록 아름답게 지켜주고 있었음을
그리고 지금 내 곁엔
나만을 믿고 있는 한 여자와
잠 못 드는 나를 달래는 오래전 그 노래만이

새 학기가 시작되는 학교에는
그 옛날 우리의 모습이 있지
뭔가 분주하게 약속이 많은 스무살의 설레임

너의 학교 그 앞을 난 가끔 거닐지
일상에 찌들어 갈 때면
우리 슬픈 계산은 없었던 시절
난 만날 수 있을 테니

너의 새 남자친구 얘길 들었지
나 제대하기 얼마 전
이해했던 만큼 미움도 커졌었지만

오늘 난 감사드렸어
몇 해 지나 얼핏 너를 봤을 때
누군가 널 그토록 아름답게 지켜주고 있었음을
그리고 지금 내 곁엔
나만을 믿고 있는 한 여자와
잠 못 드는 나를 달래는 오래전 그 노래만이

English:

I met you for the first time after taking off my uniform
Do you sometimes remember those times too?
We were so happy when we were together

As we walked together to take you home
We shyly shared our many dreams
With the promise to protect you
A few years passed


I heard about your new boyfriend
Right before I was discharged from the army
I resented you as much as I understood

Today, I gave thanks
When I saw you from far away after all these years
Someone was protecting you to be that beautiful
And right now, by my side
Is a woman who only believes in me
And a song that comforted the sleepless me

At the school where the new semester starts
Our past images are there
The heart fluttering feelings of the age twenty that seems somewhat busy

Sometimes, I paced back and forth in front of your school
When I was tired of my life
Because I can encounter
The times when we didn’t have these sad calculations

I heard about your new boyfriend
Right before I was discharged from the army
I resented you as much as I understood

Today, I gave thanks
When I saw you from far away after all these years
Someone was protecting you to be that beautiful
And right now, by my side
Is a woman who only believes in me
And a song that comforted the sleepless me
