Shine With Me
Ive Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Used to cry
Used to cry

우리 처음 만난 추웠던 December
버틸 수 없게 세상은 시렸고
언제 생긴지 모를 이 상처들을
혼자 위로하고 알아주던 쯤
그날은 so magical, so magical
그래, 넌 angelical, angelical
구름을 벗어버린 저 태양처럼
나를 환하게 비추고 있던 너

I used to cry
울고 싶지 않아 괜찮은 척 웃으며
널 본 순간 깜깜했던 밤이
빛이 나기 시작해

어둠 속에 감춘 내 눈물도
니 빛 앞에선 모든 게 다
I used to cry
니가 보낸 한 줄 '사랑해'를 보면서

Shine with me
Shine with me

우리 함께한 뜨거웠던 그 summer
눈이 부시게 세상은 빛났고
나의 오늘 또 내일 웃게 해준 너
고마운 건 항상 나였는데 말야

그날은 so magical, so magical
그래, 넌 angelical, angelical
영원히 변치 않는 저 태양처럼
늘 그 자리에 그대로 있던 너

I used to cry
울고 싶지 않아 괜찮은 척 웃으며
널 본 순간 깜깜했던 밤이
빛이 나기 시작해

어둠 속에 감춘 내 눈물도
니 빛 앞에선 모든 게 다
I used to cry
니가 보낸 한 줄 '사랑해'를 보면서

Oh, shine with me
넌 나와 눈부시게
Oh, shine with me
난 너와 빛이 나게

영원히 ever 조금 더 better
너만을 remember
영원히 ever 조금 더 better
너만을 remember

I used to cry
울고 싶지 않아 괜히 창밖을 보며
널 본 순간 깜깜했던 밤이
빛이 나기 시작해

어둠 속에 감춘 내 눈물도
니 빛 앞에선 모든 게 다
I used to cry
니가 불러주는 내 이름을 들으며

@@itsavias if she wrote whole lyrics it’s would inlclude only “lyrics by : 장원영”, but in spotify it says :
Authors (as lyricist ) : Alida Garpestad Peck, Erik Smaaland, JANG WONYOUNG, Kristoffer Tømmerbakke, RYAN JHUN
Producers : RYAN JHUN, Erik Smaaland, Kristoffer Tømmerbakke



Same with “Mine” :
authors : Celine Svanvbäck, JANG WONYOUNG, Jeppe London Bilsby, Lauritz Emil Christiansen , RHYAN JHUN.
producers : RHYAN JHUN, Lauritz Emil Christiansen , Jeppe London Bilsby


As we can see in “Mine”, she took 2nd place among the authors of texts, which means that she is one of those who mainly wrote texts. In “Shine with me” she is the third main lyricist.
For comparison, if you look at the information of the song "Heroine", Yujin is the very first among the authors there, meaning that she is the main author of the lyricst.I'm not going to discredit them with this, but I want everyone to understand that other people took part besides them.

ANYWAYS STAN IVE AND STREAM “I’ve IVE”



@capabIeofIoves

Yujin, I’ve been your fan for so long, and you don’t know how proud I am of your growth. You’re such a wonderful leader and a true all rounder idol— I’m proud to be your fan.

Gaeul, you’ve endured such a long time of trainee period, and I thank you for sticking with Starship and waiting for Wonyoung and Yujin, and it makes me happy to see you achieving so much and really putting your name out there, making simple parts the killing part.

Rei, your rap and singing always stand out to me in every IVE song. This group wouldn’t be the same without you. I love your cute cheeks, your sweet chemistry with every member, and just everything about you.

Wonyoung, I’m so, so proud of you. You’ve endured so much over all these years— things you didn’t deserve to go through. But you’ve only ever made me proud. Thank you for these tender lyrics filled with love for us… you deserve all the love in the world.

Liz, I really fell in love with you the moment you sang that line in Eleven. Your beautiful, magical voice is so special to me, and I’m so happy you’re getting so much love from many people. You have such a silly, likable personality and the sweetest voice— it’s no wonder we love you.

Leeseo, niece! Your adorable energy always makes the mood bright in lives and content, and I just adore you. I remember when you broke down at the concert, and I just am proud of you for always improving and growing, and I hope you’re always surrounded by people who adore you.

I love you, IVE, and congrats on your first full album! I love every song. 🤍

This is IVE first ballad and will be forever memorable to this fandom and the whole journey of these girls. Wonyoung wrote the lyrics, and each of everyone of them deliver such a powerful voice with the guitar and arrangement. Goshh this song is freakin beautiful. 💓💓😭😭

@minnjuus7621

Lyricist Wonyoung never disappoint me
She literally make me cry with this song
And my IVE girls’ vocals are amazing

@sophialorins.aparis9197

Yes the fact that our wonyoung went through a lot this song is for her

@ishtzr

The fact that Wony almost never cried in public but then she wholeheartedly wrote this. It feels like she only trusts us, Dive, to know her true feelings and what she had been through. Stay strong IVE 🥺 You did great Wony! We are so proud of you!

@choijigumi0929

The line "I don't wanna cry, I smile and pretend I'm fine" hits different knowing this is written by Wonyoung only. Wonyoung has been the type of person who don't show her weakness and rarely cry in front of others. She tend to keep things to herself. I know she shows us how strong she is mentally but I still worry about her. I wish her the best in life.

Nah she’s not the only one who wrote whole lyrics (same as Mine). But yep end version of korean lyrics is by her .

@Hi-gm4vz

@@lluvxcozy__ the people who are credited as writers along with her are the people who produced and arranged the song so that’s why they’re credited. 😊to get a song writing credit for a song you have to have taken a part in creating the song as a whole like those mentioned did. She didn’t create the song entirely by herself but the lyrics yes.

Mariah Carey and sza songwriting credits are the same with her because even if they both wrote the song in it’s entirety the people who helped produce and arranged the song will also get credited as song writers because that’s how it works in the music world.

Sorry for the paragraph but I just wanted to clear this up
