[LYRIC TRANSLATION] “Seoul” (서울사람) – Hong Jinyoung (홍진영) feat. Bray (브레이)

(Hong Jinyoung V/O)
Hello, it’s the first broadcast of Hong Jinyoung’s Seoul FM. I’m DJ Hong Jinyoung. It’s my first time being a DJ so I’m very nervous but going forward, I will be joined by the various stories of the listeners. Then, before we officially start, should we listen to a song? Hong Jinyoung and Bray sing it, “Seoul”.

(Hong Jinyoung)
I still like you
I can’t leave this place
Where are you?
Please find my lost love

When I pass by Yeongdeungpo, where we met often
I keep looking around
The shabby bar where we unthawed our hands
Has already been demolished
A tall building stands in its place
Where are you? Aimlessly, I’ve stopped.
I’m looking blankly at
Someone who looks like you.
I’m anticipating again in this place.

(Hong Jinyoung)
I don’t know how many times I’ve been fooled
Everyone is like you
Everyone has a warm expression
Sufficient smile
Only I’m crying again

I don’t know how many times I trusted
Everyone resembles you
Please find me
I’d rather just stand still here

Everyone is curious only about my name
Though they won’t even remember it
When I shake and totter, they only embrace me

I wanted to be a cool person
As much as there is distance
I tried cutting my long hair
I’ve tried wearing clothes I haven’t worn before
With various appearances
It seems not a thing has changed
This city has become a forest and I’m an ant
By my shoulder with thing passing by chaotically
Calmly, thus far, lonely

(Hong Jinyoung)
Can you not find me
Because I’ve changed too much?
Perhaps it’s the same for me
Nothing is different so you’re slowly forgetting me

Did you maybe pass by me?
Even if you saw me from afar
The side of me that you loved before is
Different from now

This city is erasing me

(Hong Jinyoung V/O)
Even though everyone who shared their story are all living in the city of Seoul, there are many diverse sides. Even if a moment of exhaustion comes to you, I hope that you can have strength, sometimes through music, sometimes through stories. I was happy to encounter countless stories of Seoul people. Then, I will say goodbye here. Let’s meet again tomorrow.

(Hong Jinyoung)
I still like you
I can’t leave this place
Where are you?
Please find my lost love
