윤하 (Younha) – 우리가 헤어진 진짜 이유 (The Real Reason We Broke Up) lyrics [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

Her live performance in a recent episode of Yu Hee-Yeol’s Sketchbook blew my mind away! I think Younha has made a good (read: can’t be better than this!) decision to go acoustic for this title song as it highlights her powerful vocal and the emotion. And the lyrics make me speechless… Haha :P one of the most realistic break-up song lyrics  ever. It’s so common to find lyrics about post-break-up sadness, begging for the lover to come back or getting tortured by the longing, but this piece talks about the reality of life – that some things fall in the gray area and we don’t have a choice but leaving them untouched :]

Certainly a song worth a space in your music player! xD

Translation

The real reason we broke up
I wonder if you know
Although right now,
You probably don’t care at all

The more I understood you, the farther away you got
You didn’t even get angry like before
The more we tried, the more boring you and I got

All you wanted was anticipation
It was just the beginning that you looked at me
There is no real reason why we broke up
You just didn’t love me
There’s no other reason

Oh you just never loved me
Oh now everything is clear

The real reason I loved you
You probably don’t know
Yes, if you did know
You wouldn’t have left me so easily

You dreamed of a new love
I dreamed of an eternal love
The things we looked at were so different, you and I

Each of us wrote of a different love
Each of our ends remain in a different way
There’s no reason for me to forget you completely
If I’m to be left alone here anyway
I’ll stay a bit longer

I had a bad dream
That I fell for you, who came back to me once again
That I accepted you, who just came back however you wanted

All you wanted was anticipation
It was just the beginning that you looked at me
There is no real reason why we broke up
You just didn’t love me
There’s no other reason

  2. Love this song (and the whole album, really). I’ve seen this translation by pop!gasa when it first showed up, but can you compare with this one, here? There are a few small but important changes (mainly pronouns) I think that give the song a bit of a different flavor. The ones being “I tried not to get angry too easily” and “It was just the anticipation you wanted,” which tie in with the other person wanting only a new love and looking at the beginning.

    Other than the one line where it should be “The Real Reason why I loved you,” I think this one fits more in the context of the rest of the song. Just wondering, as I can’t tell on my own xD

    • Hi Rubble! Thank you so much for your comment 🙂

      I think for the line “I tried not to get angry too easily”, it sounds rather vague to me as there’s no clear subject in the sentence. It can be interpreted as the singer tries to understand the guy, he gets distant and becomes even colder and ignorant (“You didn’t even get angry like before”).

      And for the line “It was just the anticipation you wanted”, I’d say Language By Music’s version is more accurate 🙂 I will fix it to make the translation more accurate.

      I’d say that Language By Music’s version is easier to understand and Pop! Gasa’s version sounds heavier for the choice of English words they use and the way they arrange the sentence. 🙂
