Lyrics To Tablo’s “Fever’s End”

22 Oct

So even though we already posted a review of Tablo’s new album “Fever’s End” here on DramaPop, I thought it would be fun for all the non Korean speakers to see the direct translations of the lyrics. Tablo is known for his emotional and poingent lyrics so take a look below!

Home ft. Lee Sora

When I step past my door frame, I get dizzy
Because it’s the border to my comfort zone
The useless emotions that dirty my heart is covered with dust
If I get out of here, there’s death
Because I disliked the unfamiliar happiness more than the familiar sadness, I threw away my footsteps
I worry that I’ll become a pair of worn shoes
Because the world, time, people twistedly wear me
I forget. Like the heaps of newspapers and bills in front of my door,
Don’t leave the thoughts and demands of the world in front of me
This is my home – leave me alone
Just don’t come in here

* Now I cry without tears
Just like breathing, I cry again
The sadness that became a home
Though I try to take a step out, I cry at the doorstep
I cry, without me knowing

Do I deserve to be happy?
Why have I fallen deeply into shallow scars?
Anyone may receive showers of arrows in life
But why is the target on my heart so big for me?
Emotions run from one end to another
But for a slow-paced me, I fall behind and out of breath
I cannot hold my heart and I lose the world
A few steps more is happiness but
I raise each step a little more
Anyone can be afraid of this
But to me, it’s more natural than laughter
Crying is easy like breathing – the more you hold it in, your more you let out
Let me breathe – sadness is my home
I want to stay here, in this place
Even if I go out to happiness for a moment
Now I know that I would want to go back

* repeat

Inside my sadness that became my home,
Inside my sadness that became my home, can I invite you in?

* repeat

It’s Bad ft. Jinsil

Everybody says that something’s different, that I’ve changed
They say, you used to be full of love and care but
Since one day, you became cold
Everybody says that something’s different, that I’ve changed
They say, you used to be full of love and care but
Since one day, you became cold, they don’t get it
You used to smile a lot but your eyes, face
The way you speak, it all became dark and scary
Is it because of the memory that I want to kill
I erase myself from my heart
Cause a kind heart is useless
It’s a flaw in this world
So I guess I want to become worse and worse
Like the saying, lovers resemble each other
I guess this is my way to become like you
Bad, love is so bad
It became the reason to breathe
But now you block my breath
*Love is so bad bad bad bad bad
I guess the more you get to know about love, you only become worse
Love is so bad bad bad bad bad
When you get to know love, your heart aches
Y
ou become worse as much as you know
I get angry easily when I used to not
I’m not myself
But I say, ‘what is like me?’ while I know it so well
I don’t see myself clearly
I get embraced in the dark
Even with my eyes closed, I can’t sleep comfortably
I wander all night, even one shot
I couldn’t drink but now I crave alcohol
Anxiously as I stumble on the rainy streets, I pick fights
My lips that used to whisper only good words
Now only swears whenever I breathe
I don’t pass by before the ember becomes a fire
I habitually lie and
I harass love with the name of love
Bad, people are so bad
You became the reason why I open my eyes
But now you block my sight
*Repeat
**The worse thing than you, who is bad
Is that I can’t get over you, who is bad
I break apart and become worse
I become worse to other people
**Repeat

Bad , so bad, it hurts, it hurts so much
What we call love
Love is a sickness
Can I get a witness
Love is a sickness
Can I get a witness
ad , so bad, it hurts, it hurts so much
What we call love
Love is a sickness
Can I get a witness
Love is a sickness Love

Airbag ft. Naul

I need an airbag
Before I hit the great sadness that approaches

On nights that I don’t want to go home,
The taxi driver only avoids the shortcuts
On the radio, the DJ and the guests who laugh too easily just talk
They don’t play music and the conversation gets longer
Usually, I don’t like listening to that so I would’ve asked to change the station
But whatever, there isn’t a song that I want to listen to anyway
They keep blabbing so my thoughts are on mute
Laughter bursts from words that I don’t pay attention to
Seeing as how even the stone-faced taxi driver starts to laugh
I guess it’s a popular saying that is trending these days
Perhaps I’m the only island
Afterwards, someone introduces a requested song
A sad song that I used to really like at one point
I wonder if that person is alone as well
In a place where a long day can rest

* I need an airbag
Before I hit the great sadness that approaches
I need an airbag
It’s too late to avoid it

There are so many things to take care of these days
I can’t even get properly drunk
But it’s not like I avoid drinking sessions
Maybe it’s because I don’t want to be alone
Or is it because I want it to be obvious that I want to be alone?
Lonliness is a common thing to me
Will I be able to share myself if there was someone by my side?
It’s a question mark that I don’t want to place at the end
But to my relief, I hear a loud voice on the phone
I guess the taxi driver’s plans for drinking have been canceled
He hangs up the phone and grumbles, as if he’s mad
My eyes linger on the family photo taped above the meter
I wonder if the reason for this wandering is because
There is no home, or there is nowhere to go
Or is it that there are lots of places to go
But no one to wait for me?

* repeat

I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
Once again (x2)

I’m dangerous right now
I’m dangerous right now
Don’t crash into me

I don’t know since when it started to fall
But at some point, I look out the window
And as if it’s been raining for a while,
There are puddles on the street floor
Reflected in those puddles, I see a neon billboard for car accidents
Right then, why am I remembering you, who is probably doing well right now
Why are tears forming?
The number “1” next to the word “Death:” seems so lonely

* repeat

On this night where I long for you
The rain comes and my heart gets slippery
I need you, yes I need you, my airbag

I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
Once again

I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
I guess I’m all alone again
Not again

Tide ft. DJ Friz

You, facing danger
Everything is floating away
Resisting the water
When the world is an aquarium

At some point you turn twenty
Avoiding the fish hook
Breathing a breath of relief
When the world is a net

Swim, swim, swim away.
My dreams dive into you and drown
Swim, swim, swim away.
My life dives into you and drown

Crossing every line
Emphasizing being upright
Telling others to be straight when you’re crooked
Trying to run
When you’re surrounded by walls
You try to place those bricks
When you are a star
Because of the useless requests of the adults,
You become a shooting star
The hand that gave you the shovel points fingers at you
And tells you that you dug your own grave

Try ft. Bumkey

Oh, even if all the tears of the world
Are welled up in my small eyes
I wish I could shed your tears as well

You just had to meet me when I was at rock bottom
Whenever you smile, my heart aches
To me, everything is guilt
Is that a half-smile?
Is that a smile that did not fully bloom because it doesn’t know a different world?
You say you’re alright but I guess I can only give you the state of being alright
Because I hated to show you this small and embarrassing empty hand,
Like a fool, I make your extended hand, an empty hand too
Earlier, maybe later – why couldn’t we have met when there was good news?
You could’ve rested under the sunlight in a green forest
But you, who walks with me in the rain under my rain cloud,
My love, an unfortunate person
This isn’t how my heart is
I didn’t become your better half in hope that you’d take half of my unhappiness

* repeat

You just had to meet me when I was at rock bottom
The sound of your cries make my heart ache, to me
Even though I want to comfort you, I’m exhausted and my face grows dark
I can’t make you laugh and I put you to bed, who passed out from crying
My stopped two hands are your watch
What has crumbled is not mine but your future
But why is it when I see you are different when you wake up
I think of my own reality that hasn’t grown a single inch
I’m sorry – even if I say it thousands of times, I’m sorry again
That this small room and this low ceiling is the sky
That I am your umbrella and the rain

Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight
Good morning

repeat

Baby I’ll try
Someday, I will be happiness to you
Try
Someday, I’ll be the best for you
Try
Today, it’s just words but girl I’ll try
Baby I’ll try
Someday, I’ll give the whole world to you
Try
If I can’t, I’ll change the world for you
Try
Today, it’s just words but girl I’ll try

    Thx for the post! There are so many different interpretations of the lyrics… I can tell that these songs are really meaninful, so I really wish I was a native Korean just so I could fully appreciate his real words.
