Lyrics

Lim Jeong-Hee:
가슴아 훨훨 타버려라
추억이 다 재가 돼 버리게
사랑아 훨훨 가버려라
슬픔이 다 날아가 버리게
재가 돼 버리게
날아가 버리게

RM:
믿을 수 없어
우린 이제 끝이란 니 고백
좋았잖아 왜 이제 와서 이별을 고해
떠나간 널 생각하며 혼자서 날 무너뜨려 uh
쌓아온 마음의 도미노를 쓰러뜨려
내가 서 있는건지
아니면 떠 있는건지
아직 분간도 못해 모두 멈춰 있는건지
다 그대론데 우리 둘만은 변해있어
처음부터 없었다는 듯이 고요해져 있어

우리 두 손 꼭 잡고 걸었던 거리 위로 날리는 먼지들
이제 너 없는 현실을 말하듯 울려 퍼지는
슬픈 멜로디
차라리 가버렸음 해
생각도 나지 않게 쭉 떠나버렸음 해
사진을 태워도 기억은 재가 되지를 않고
내게 새겨진 원한과의 아픈 다툼만 남고
이렇게 불을 붙이면 다 재가 될 수 있을까
오늘도 난 추억들을 태우고 태운다 ye

Lim Jeong-Hee:
가슴아 훨훨 타버려라
추억이 다 재가 돼 버리게
사랑아 훨훨 가버려라
슬픔이 다 날아가 버리게
재가 돼 버리게
날아가 버리게

IRON:
너가 내 곁을 떠났다는 현실이
여름이 되도 시린 겨울 인듯 절실히
이별이 실감이나 너 없는 내겐
너의 흔적들이 남아 왜 이렇게
지워지지 않고
날 괴롭히는지
감춰봐도 속마음은 왜 자꾸 튀는지
엉켜버린 감정을 풀려고 해봤지만 끝내
끊어지고야 말았던 너와 내 사이
갈수록 멀어지는 너 때문에 점점
흐려지는 너를 보는 내 눈의 초점
억지로 돌아선 널 잡으려 해봐도
엎지른 물을 다시 담으려 해봐도
이미 완전히 다 변해버린 니 맘
I Can't Rewind The Tape Of Our Sweet Time
차라리 내게 남은 너의 생각이
다 타버려 재가 되어 날아가길

Lim Jeong-Hee:
가슴아 훨훨 타버려라
추억이 다 재가 돼 버리게
사랑아 훨훨 가버려라
슬픔이 다 날아가 버리게
재가 돼 버리게
날아가 버리게

I realize it’s time to let go of you
But 나 혼자
살아가야 한다는 게
두려워
너무 무서워
자꾸만 울게 돼
니가 너무 그리워

가슴아 훨훨 타버려라
추억이 다 재가 돼 버리게
사랑아 훨훨 가버려라
슬픔이 다 날아가 버리게
재가 돼 버리게
날아가 버리게

I realize it’s time to let go of you
But 나 혼자
I realize it’s time to let go of you
But I’m alone

Lim Jeong-Hee:
Dear heart, burn it all down
So that the memories can all turn to ashes
Dear love, go far away
So my sadness can fly away
So it can all be ashes
So it can fly away

RM:
I can’t believe it
Your confession that we’re over now
We were great, why are you saying goodbye now?
Thinking about how you left is tearing me down while I’m alone uh
All the feelings I had lined up like dominos are toppling
Am I standing or am I floating?
I still can’t tell, everything’s stopped
Everything’s as it was, it’s only us two that have changed
It’s turning silent like we were never there in the first place

There’s dust floating on the road we used to walk, hands clasped tight
The reality of being without you now is echoed in a sad spoken melody
I’d rather you just go away
So I can’t even think about it, just leave straight away
Even if I burn the pictures, the memories won’t turn to ashes
Only the grudge engraved on me and our painful fights remain
If I light them on fire, will they all turn to ash?
Today I’m burning memories again and again

Lim Jeong-Hee:
Dear heart, burn it all down
So that the memories can all turn to ashes
Dear love, go far away
So my sadness can fly away
So it can all be ashes
So it can fly away

IRON:
The reality that you’ve left my side
Makes summer feel like cold winter
Breakup is painfully real, all that’s left for me is traces of you
Why can’t I erase them?
It’s tormenting me
Even though I try to hide it, why does my heart keep fluttering?
I’ve tried to undo my tangled emotions but in the end
Our relationship ended up snapping in two
Because you keep getting farther away
My eyes are focused on your fading image
Against my will, I try to grab you as you turn away
I try to pour the spilt water back where it belongs
But your heart has already completely changed
I can’t rewind the tape of our sweet time
I’d rather if the remaining thoughts of you would all burn
I hope they turn to ash and float away

Lim Jeong-Hee:
Dear heart, burn it all down
So that the memories can all turn to ashes
Dear love, go far away
So my sadness can fly away
So it can all be ashes
So it can fly away
I realize it’s time to let go of you

I realize it’s time to let go of you
But the thought of going on living alone
Is frightening
It’s too terrifying
I just keep crying
I miss you so much

Dear heart, burn it all down
So that the memories can all turn to ashes
Dear love, go far away
So my sadness can fly away
So it can all be ashes
So it can fly away I realize it’s time to let go of you

But I’m alone
I realize it’s time to let go of you
But I’m alone
