바보처럼 난 아이처럼 또 울먹이며 그대 등 뒤에 서 있죠
like a fool… I… like a child, once again I am close to tears. I’m standing behind her back.

잘 지냈니 그 한마디조차 못해요 자꾸 목이 메어서
How have you been? I can’t even ask you this one thing because my voice keeps getting chocked.

보고싶어 너무 그리워
I miss you. I long for you very much

난 쉴새없이 외쳤던 그대 이름도
your name that I keep shouting out to without having a break…

그대 앞에선 혼잣말로도 난 감히 소리낼수가 없어요
I don’t have the cheek to make a noise even by just talking to myself in front of her

돌아보면 안돼요 나를 절대 용서하면 안돼요 나를
you shouldn’t turn back around to look at me… you should never forgive me…

내게 마음쓰지 말아요 그대를 울게 하는 일 밖에
don’t bother yourself about me. those are only things that would make you cry.

아픈 것 밖에 난 못 주니까
I can’t give you nothing, but pain.

어렸었고 어리석었던 지난 시간에 그 자리에 멈춰있죠
I stood stationary at the place in the past when I was young and when I was foolish

거울 앞에 선 내 두 눈속에서 그대의 눈물이 흘러요
her tears are flowing inside of both my eyes which (I) stand in front of the mirror

돌아보면 안돼요 나를 절대 용서하면 안돼요 나를
you shouldn’t turn back around to look at me… you should never forgive me…

내게 마음쓰지 말아요 그대를 울게 하는 일 밖에
don’t bother yourself about me. those are only things that would make you cry.

아픈 것 밖에 난 못 주니까
I can’t give you nothing, but pain.

내 말대로 해줘요 그댈 위해 추억으로만 남아
do it as I tell you to. leave things as good memories for the sake of her

어쩌다 한번 평생에라도 한번 기억하면 되죠
somehow for once… for once in your whole life… it’s fine so long as you remember me once.

사랑하면 안돼요 우리 서로 미련두지 말아요 우리
you shouldn’t love each other. we should leave any lingering affections for each other.

난 비겁하게 날 속여요 하고싶은 말 단 한마디인데 ‘사랑해’
I fool myself cowardly. there’s only just one thing that I want to say, ‘I love you’.

돌아갈 순 없나요 우리 다신 돌이킬 수 없나요 우리
Can’t we go back to how things were before? Can’t we fix things to how it was before?

단 한번만 딱 한번만 제발
just once, just for once, I beg you.
