3. Taeyeon – I (ft. Verbal Jint)/태연 - 아이 (ft. 버벌진트)
But strong girl you know you were born to fly 네가 흘린 눈물 네가 느낀 고통은 다 더 높이 날아오를 날을 위한 준비일 뿐 Butterfly Everybody’s gonna see it soon -x- But strong girl You know you were born to fly The tears that you shed Every pain that you felt To prepare for the day when you flying higher, Butterfly Everybody’s gonna see it soon
This song really speaks to me because I have always felt weighted down, as if I could not succeed on my own. And the first moment I heard this song, even before I knew the English translation, it spoke to me. It was like I knew it would be uplifting and speak of my struggles. And that quote above, the beautiful words of encourage that Verbal Jint raps. That's what hit me the most. Listening to this song makes me feel like I can do anything. Like there is still light a light inside of me that rages on despite the darkness trying to consume it. It makes me see beauty in this corrupted world. And lastly, it makes me believe that maybe I can apart of that beauty. That thing that keeps the world pure.
2. ZICO - I Am You, You Are Me/지코 - 너는 나 나는 너
넌 나고 난 너야 난 너고 넌 나야 마음이 같다면 둘은 서로가 될 거야 넌 나고 난 너야 그림 너무 좋아 -x- You are me, I am you I am you, you are me If our hearts are the same Two will become each other You are me I am you We make a pretty picture
Now this song. This song is kind of different from the other two songs on this list. This song doesn't describe my current feelings, but it does describe what I would want in the future. I aspire to have a love like the one mentioned in the song above. I literally could quote several parts of this song to show you just how much it means to me. However, I chose the chorus because it seemed the most fitting and to the point. This song describes a soulmate, the second half of your heart. It speaks of destiny and a love that is pure, a love that shines brighter than the sun. A love that should be treasured and adored. A love that I yearn for. The kind of love that I wish for myself in the future.
1. Rap Monster - Adrift/랩몬스터 - 표류
무엇을 위해서 살아가는지 알지 못했었지 행복을 위해서 살아간다는데 그게 대체 뭔지 -x- what are we living for we couldn’t know they say that we’re living for happiness but what is that
Remember what I said earlier in this card about order of importance. Well that's where this comes in. Out of every K song I have heard, this song is the one that means the most to me. It' s a song that I feel so deeply that I don't think anyone bar a few close people could come close to understanding just how much it means to me. It has got me through some pretty rough times. I feel that every single line in this song could have been written by mean. It's deep and philosophical. And it explains things in a way I would have never thought to explain them. It puts all those mixed emotions I feel inside into words. And to think that all of that is laid out over a chill ass, thought inducing beat. It pulls you in, it makes you wonder you. It makes you explore your mind. It makes you ask the questions you wouldn't want the answers to. It makes you face the facts that you refuse to acknowledge. This song is everything and more. It's the embodiment of a person who has lost themselves in the world, who wants to figure out who they are. Honestly, I could ramble on and on about the emotions this song makes me feel but I think you guys should understand it by now so I'll leave you with three words. IT. JUST. IS.
BONUS: GOT7 - MINE/갓세븐 -
한 순간도 다른 곳 바라보지마 그냥 볼 수 없어 널 놓칠 수 없어 니 옆에는 나만 남아 있어야 돼 Cuz you’re mine you’re mine you’re mine you’re mine Cuz you’re mine you’re mine you’re mine you’re mine Cuz you’re mine you’re mine you’re mine -x- Don’t look anywhere else even for a moment I can’t just watch, I can’t lose you I have to be the only one next to you Cuz you’re mineyou’re mine you’re mine you’re mineCuz you’re mineyou’re mine you’re mine you’re mineCuz you’re mineyou’re mine you’re mine
This song is dedicated to my wife, @MorganElisabeth. She's one of my best friends and I've known her for about three years now. She means the world to me. I'm pretty sure we are obsessed with each other, but that's a story for another time. Not that I actually plan on telling. Anyway, she is mine and I refuse to share her. And this song has a lot of meaning to me because it explains how I feel about her and how she feels about me. We call this our song. And it will go down in history as so. Also, this song also represents our feels towards JACKBAM/BAMSON. Cause it is real and it is our #1 OTP okay. I mean they call each other wifey and hubby. PLSSSS. Where is their chill? Back to the point. Morgan is mine. I am very possessive of her. And I get jealous when people try to take her attention away from me. Cause she is mine. She's mine, she's mine, she's mine. I know it, she knows it and now you know it to. So remember that. This is a warning vinglers. The song explains it better than I ever can, lol.
