Payback
Ive Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Umm
이른 아침 해와 시작되는 내 꿈 (oh)
울려대는 알람은 기분 좋은 tune
우리 앞에 펼쳐질 아름다운 view
깊이 보기 위해 크게 참은 숨

있어줄 거야 너의 곁에
날 기다리는 너를 위해
너만 있음 만족해

오직 널 위한
너만에 의한
Sweetest melody

그러니까 함부로
날 아프게, 아프게 하지마 how dare?
니 맘을 숨기고 아닌 척 해봐도
소용없어 벌써 이미
낯선 감정 나를 향해 흐르니

Ah 눈을 감아 가볍게
잘 들어봐 그렇게
Ah 눈을 떠봐 니 앞에
'Cause I'd always think of you

Ooh
Umm

사랑은 쉽게 변하지
사람은 쉽게 안 변해
내 맘을 꺼내 보여주면
사랑의 정의가 바뀔 걸

겨울에 핀 flower
추윌 맞서 싸워
너만 있음 난 okay

오직 널 위한
너만에 의한
Sweetest melody

그러니까 함부로
날 아프게 아프게 하지마 how dare?
니 맘을 숨기고 아닌 척 해봐도
소용없어 벌써 이미
낯선 감정 나를 향해 흐르니

Ah 눈을 감아 가볍게
잘 들어봐 그렇게
Ah 눈을 떠봐 니 앞에
'Cause I'd always think of you

Winter's coming
You better get going
어디도 없어, 내가 있을 곳
네가 있는 거기 when I feel lonely
필요해 오직 니 웃음 소리

그러니까 함부로
날 아프게 아프게 하지마 how dare?
니 맘을 숨기고 아닌 척 해봐도
소용없어 벌써 이미
낯선 감정 나를 향해 흐르니

Ah 눈을 감아 가볍게
잘 들어봐 그렇게




Ah 눈을 떠봐 니 앞에
'Cause I'd always think of you
