Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I’ve been addicted to We Got Married for sometime now (though I’m not done watching the 41 episodes that’s been posted on mysoju — I’m still on the 31st episode). One of my favorite couples is of course the “lettuce” couple (a.k.a joongbo couple) — all because of Kim Hyun Joong — and I have to admit its was because of him that I watched this show.

In one of the many episodes,  particularly the 26th episode, Hyun Joong serenaded Hwang Bo because it was her birthday. The song he sang sounded very familiar, but I can’t seem to place where I heard the song. So I googled it and it is in fact, to me a very familiar song… because it won an Academy Award last 2006 as the Best Song. The song that I am talking about is Falling Slowly, which was the original music for a movie called Once. I love the lyrics and the melody of the song and the fact that it won an Oscars!

once-movie

The song I’m posting isn’t anything Asian but I loved this song eversince I heard it some 2 years ago. It was my cousin who introduced me to the song. I almost forgot about it, until the time I heard Hyun Joong sing it. And now I have to stop my blabber and share the song with you :D.

I’m posting a videoclip I got from the FoxSearchlight channel on youtube. It has clips of the movie. I’m also including a link for the audio only incase you would like to listen…

Audio Version

Falling Slowly

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

** i got the lyrics from  stlyrics.com, and it also says there that robyn did the corrections so credits to her (or him..)

A Love Story – Gavy NJ

I’ve been listening to this song over and over again. It was one of the Korean songs given by my officemates (who is an addict like me). Since I do not understand Korean (unfortunately I’m just relying on subtitles ahahaha), I did not understand what the song meant. But I love the melody. I was addicted to this song long before I understood the lyrics. The song I am talking about (and as the title of this post suggests..) is A Love Story by Gavy NJ.

gavynj

Gavy NJ is a Korean girl group composed of 3 members — who according to some research I did on the internet — whose musical styles range from R&B, pop ballad, blues and disco. I think A Love Story was released late last year or early this year. I tried to search for the video on youtube and luckily wondersmurf has posted the video with english subs. And too my surprise this is yet another sad song!!! ahahaha.. but nontheless I will still be sharing it.

A Love Story (Translation)

i keep looking at only you eventhough there’s someone else by your side
like always only you in my eyes my heart is filled with only you
once in a while, when you give me a passing smile i think  about that smile the whole day
do you get it? if your girl was me, if my love was you

i want to love, i want to have you
even though i can’t say the words that i prepared all night
you’re the only one for me the one who makes me cry the person who makes my heart flutter
it’s ok if it hurts even if i cant have you
i’ll stay behind you and live cherishing only you
it’s ok because I love only you if i can just see you

what do you like so much about your girl that you’re always
laughing when you see her
i guess i’m a helpless girl i’m so jealous of her

i want to love, i want to have you
even though i can’t say the words that i prepared all night
you’re the only one for me the one who makes me cry the person who makes my heart flutter
it’s ok if it hurts even if i cant have you
i’ll stay behind you and live cherishing only you
it’s ok because I love only you if i can just see you

even though i promise not to, my eyes look to only you
my heart has gone crazy it looks for only you even though  I shouldn’t fall in love with you

it’s you, only you
no matter how much i wish it it probably won’t make a difference
i want to go back. i’ll let you go that girl is really lovable
it’s okay if it hurts even if i can’t have you
i’ll stand behind you and live cherishing only you
thank you, even though you’re not my love because i’ll still be able to see you

A Love Story (Hangul)

자꾸 너만 바라보게 되잖아 너의 곁에 다른 사람있는데
언제나 두눈 속에 너만 내맘속에 너만 또 가득찬걸
가끔 스치듯이 웃어줄 때면 하루종일 그 미소만 생각나
알겠니 너의 그녀가 나였으면 내사랑이 꼭 너였으면

사랑하고 싶어 너를 갖고 싶어
밤새 준비했던 말한마디 못했지만
내겐 너뿐이야 날 울리는 사람 나를 설레게한 단 한 사람
아파도 좋은걸 가질순 없어도
너의 뒤에서 난 너만 간직하며 살게
그래도 괜찮아 널 사랑해서 널 볼수만 있다면

너의 그녀 어디가 그리 좋아 그녈 보고 늘 웃고 있는건지
나 역시 어쩔수 없는 여잔가봐 그녀가 너무 부럽잖아

사랑하고 싶어 너를 갖고 싶어
밤새 준비했던 말한마디 못했지만
내겐 너뿐이야 날 울리는 사람 나를 설레게한 단 한 사람
아파도 좋은걸 가질순 없어도
너의 뒤에서 난 너만 간직하며 살게
그래도 괜찮아 널 사랑해서 널 볼수만 있다면

다짐해도 내눈은 너만 향하는데
내맘이 미쳤나봐 너만을 찾나봐 정말 사랑해선 안되는데

너란 말야 오직 너란 말야
바라고 또 바래 아무 소용 없겠지만
이젠 돌아갈래 너를 놓아줄게 너무 사랑스런 그녀잖아
아파도 좋은걸 가질순 없어도
너의 뒤에서 난 너만 간직하며 살게
고마워 내사랑은 아니라도 널 볼수가 있어서
