어반 자카파(Urban Zakapa) – 거꾸로 걷는다 (Walk Backwards) lyrics [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

A very simple song with an equally simple yet beautiful and haunting music video ❤ The lyrics talk about how difficult it is to erase old memories from our mind. And sometimes it feels like we walk backwards and going round and round , only to find ourselves at the same place again.

 

어반 자카파 (Eoba Jakapa/Urban Zakapa) – 거꾸로 걷는다 (Geogguro Geodneunda/Walk Backwards) 

돌아서기 아쉬워 거꾸로 걷는다

Dol-a-seo-gi a-swi-weo geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

끝을 아는 내 발길 거꾸로 걷는다

Ggeut-eul a-neun nae bal-gil geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

거꾸로 걷는다 거꾸로 걷는다

Geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

돌아서기 아쉬워 거꾸로 걷는다

Dol-a-seo-gi a-swi-weo geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

거꾸로 걷는다 거꾸로 걷는다

Geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

돌아서기 아쉬워 거꾸로 걷는다

Dol-a-seo-gi a-swi-weo geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

눈 감아도 보이는 내 등 뒤의 길

Nun gam-a-do bo-i-neun nae deung dwi-eui gil

차라리 모르는 채 거꾸로 걷는다

Cha-ra-ri mo-reu-neun chae geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

거꾸로 걷는다 거꾸로 걷는다

Geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da, geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

돌아서기 아쉬워 거꾸로 걷는다

Dol-a-seo-gi a-swi-weo geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

거꾸로 걷는다 거꾸로 걷는다

Geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da, geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

돌아서기 아쉬워 거꾸로 걷는다

Dol-a-seo-gi a-swi-weo geo-ggu-ro geod-neun-da

 

Translation

I don’t want to turn around so I walk backwards
My footsteps already know the end so I walk backwards

Walk backwards, walk backwards
I don’t want to turn around, so I walk backwards

Walk backwards, walk backwards
I don’t want to turn around, so I walk backwards

I see the street behind me even if I close my eyes
I’d rather not know and just walk backwards

Walk backwards, walk backwards
I don’t want to turn around, so I walk backwards

Walk backwards, walk backwards
I don’t want to turn around, so I walk backwards

  1. Thanks for the transalation. It’s such a lovely song. Walikng Backwards could also refer to this. The person doesn’t want to turn their back on their loved one, even when departing, so they walk backwards to be able to see the other one in the last moments… something like that

  2. Reblogged this on Chao's blog and commented:
    As always, Urban Zakapa keeps the harmony of their voices amazingly. Eventhough the lyric is very simple, but the song is so ear-catchy. I replayed this song for couple times. I just can’t wait for their next album!
