1. Only One

You’re only getting farther
you’re the only one
As much as I loved you,
you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and
it’s foolish but good bye
Though I may never see you again,
you’re the only one
Only one


We awkwardly sit across each other,
Making small talk and asking what’s new
The moments when the
conversation stop for a moment
The cold silence freezes us


We will become strangers
at this place right now
Someone will shed tears and be left alone but
I hate seeing you try not to
scar me and feel ill at ease
So I’ll let you go


My love, good bye now
you’re the only one (you’re the only one)
Even at the moment we break up, you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and it’s foolish but good bye
Though I may never see you again,
you’re the only one


Only One
You’re the only one, Only One


At my sudden works, you seem
to be relieved for some reason
Where did we go wrong?
Did we hope for different
places starting from long ago?


The sharpness of the vast
difference of our start and end
And the pain that stabs my heart
why is it so similar?
My overwhelmed heart crumbles
emptily in just one moment
How can I stand up again?


My love, good bye now
you’re the only one (you’re the only one)
Even at the moment we break up,
you’re the only one
It hurts and hurts and it’s foolish but
good bye
Though I may never see you again,
you’re the only one


When will my head
erase you? (I will let you go)
One day, two days, one month,
if long term then a few years (My baby can’t forget)


And someday in your memories,
I won’t live in it, you will erase me
Only One Only One
You’re the only one, Only One

2. The Shadow

The Shadow – the same image as me that follows me
I want to hide but I can’t avoid it
On top of face that everyone thinks they know
The mask is softly upon it, behind it


Have you seen the tears, have you
Have you seen the sadness, see how I do
I stepped on that pain and stood up again
At the moment I felt it was the end


The Shadow – following me, looking at me
Your line of vision, your eyes,
everything makes me freeze
The Shadow – embracing me, protecting me
Your image, your existence,
everything makes me live


When the lights shine on me, I dance with you
All of my expressions approach you
When I’m trapped in darkness,
you come inside of my body
We slowly spread into
each other as one light


Have you seen those eyes (seen), have you
Have you felt that moment, see how I do
Embrace that joy confidently
And start again, you and I (you and I)


The Shadow – following me, looking at me
Your line of vision, your eyes, everything shines on me
The Shadow – embracing me, protecting me
Your image, your existence, everything protects me


At my changes over the
years, you change too
The natural changes brings trial and error
(brings trial and error)
While I realize and acknowledge things little by little
I don’t want to forget The Shadow
and want to cherish it forever


You will look at me, you will protect you
Wherever I am, if I’m with you, now I will reveal you
As if speaking through mirrors
(speaking through mirrors)
You make me think of you, give me courage
(make me think)
The light and body movements you gave me
(light, body movements, sounds)
Those sounds make us stand up again (stand up again)


(I wanna show you what I mean)
The Shadow – following me, looking at me
Your line of vision, your eyes,
everything makes me smile
The Shadow – now inside of me, I will protect you
Another shadow that has taken place in me
(Another shadow)

3. 네모난 바퀴 (Hope)

I’ve never gone lightly,
I always stood there, scrunched up
They’re looking at me, pointing fingers and laughing
They always made fun of me because I looked different


Though the wind blows and the dust settles
Though the rain pours and drenches me miserably
I always try to roll around
each time I take a step,
the traces are left deeper and clearer


Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel,
if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings,
I will run strongly to the hill


Yes, I’m hopeful
these tears shall dry yeah


My hardships don’t look nice and are slow
but I will silently endure and overcome
I will perfect myself and clash once again


I dream of looking at a large meadow and if
it crumbles slowly and the speed catches on
Even I, who was ridiculed, will smile
widely as I look confidently to the world


Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel,
if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings,
I will run strongly to the hill


These tears shall dry


In these long sufferings that will
wear out between the rocks
I will be born again
I just think about that


The moment I am blessed in
the green forest filled with flowers
It will find me as well
so I will find myself too


Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel,
if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings,
I will run strongly to the hill


Yes, I’m hopeful, I will find myself,
these tears shall dry yeah


I’m hopeful


These tears shall dry yeah

4. Not Over U

Take me away – I look at my wristwatch
Just as always, a long silence finds me
The approaching train passes me by
I live with the belief that the next
one will come
when this one passes


If I opened my eyes for half the day,
I am walking alone like yesterday
That’s not a big deal – I’m scared of meeting you
As I’m walking alone through the memories


Oh (Oh) Are you hurting as much as me?
Can’t you look back at me first?
I’m standing opposite of you but
I’m not over you


The shadow walking ahead of me beckons me
That narrow street corner takes me there (I follow it)
I still cleary see the two people standing there
Anyone can see that they’re so beautiful
they look pretty happy


If I opened my eyes for half the day,
I am walking alone like yesterday
That’s not a big deal – I’m scared of meeting you
As I’m walking alone through the memories


Oh (Oh) If only I can turn back time
I wouldn’t have divided our memories
or walked the other way
I’m not over you


Oh, you’re not by my side but
Oh but you’re still in me
Oh, the skies are clear again today
Oh, but rain falls in my eyes, oh


The memories are so sad
They remind me that it’s not now but it’s the past


Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

5. The Top

I’m nervous, I’m nervous about your heightened status
Your wriggling tippy-toeing makes me sad
Higher, higher, someone steps higher
and someone gets stepped on


Have you heard that
no one is above that?
No one may know this
only those who have flied high may know


(Breathtaking tightroping) Breathtaking tightroping,
a place for the crowned
(A place for the crowned) You dream of it,
the day you touch the sky
(Breathtaking tightroping) You think you
can have it have it in your own imagination
(A place for the crowned) A made-up place,
a place that doesn’t exist, the Top


Your eyes have definitely been covered
your thickly goggling eyes are not ordinary
Oh I don’t know, you’re all or nothing,
you either win or lose


(Strong like alcohol) Strong like alcohol,
make your throat burn more
(Make your throat burn more) The closer you go,
the more you’re trapped
(Strong like alcohol) You just cannot have it, you’re in a trap
(Make your throat burn more) The place you
need to be is a place that doesn’t exist, the Top


Why are things so one way or another?
It’s either all up or straight down
A certain place, a certain way – that’s not the only way
You’re a pretty butterfly, the fact that you can fly is your treasure
You’re so busy crawling that you still don’t know yourself


(Breathtaking tightroping) Breathtaking tightroping,
a place for the crowned
(A place for the crowned) You dream of it,
the day you touch the sky
(Breathtaking tightroping) You think you
can have it have it in your own imagination
(A place for the crowned) A made-up place,
a place that doesn’t exist, the Top


(Strong like alcohol) Strong like alcohol,
make your throat burn more
(Make your throat burn more) The closer you go,
the more you’re trapped
(Strong like alcohol) You just cannot have it, you’re in a trap
(Make your throat burn more) The place you
need to be is a place that doesn’t exist, the Top

6. Mayday! Mayday! (너에게 닿기를 간절히 외치다)

After the rain stopped,
the sky looks especially clearer
As if it had never been bad the first place
I bite my lips and slowly pace my breathing
And I think about the
memories I locked up for a while


It’s alright, as I really think deeply, I fly away
As I fly higher, at some point, tears fall


So I’m endlessly calling mayday
until I have no strength left
I crumble down at the sharply piercing separation
Mayday, I earnestly shout out so it can reach you
I hold tight the ended
love and fall down


As if I’m following
a set route every day
The moment I open my eyes,
I face a reality that is without you


It’s alright, I think I’ve gotten used to it now
I try to laugh once and
suddenly my breath is cut short


So I’m endlessly calling mayday
until I have no strength left
I crumble down at the sharply piercing separation
Mayday, I earnestly shout out so it can reach you
I hold tight the ended
love and fall down


I wandered endlessly to the entrance of the world
And I let go of the hand that you extended to me
It is my reality that is beyond my capacity


I’m endlessly calling mayday,
I’m once again far away
The speeding skies are more dazzling
and I hate it even more for that
I look up and I shout out again
Mayday, I want someone to
please hurry and take me to you
Someone please save this
love that is still remaining


Mayday, I shout so it can reach you
At some point, the morning embraces my shoulder
And it’s over now

7. One Dream (Feat. Henry Of Super Junior-M & Key Of SHINee)

The more I drop my head,
the further away the light gets
Lift up your head,
open up all possibilities (yeah)
They keep ridicule me,
saying that I can’t
And devaluing me
but I will never stop (hey)


I want to hold it – the hand extended to me (hey)
I will hold it – the hand extended to me (hey)
I bite down all the criticisms toward me
It become silence


To me, there is only
One voice (One voice)
One dream (One dream),
One chance (One chance)
I can do it – One wish (One wish),
One soul (One soul),
One time (One time, Hey)
With all my heart (Let’s go Let’s go)
They look at me
with expectant eyes
The light that shines on me is bright
My desperate dreams are
now in front of my eyes
Sing a song with
One voice (One voice)
One voice (One voice)
One voice (One voice) One voice,
To me, there is only
One voice


Because there were days that
seemed like they would never come
I avoid the world that
once turned away from me
I wanted to run away when they were disappointed
Sadness was too deep but I’ll stand up again
Don’t tell me that I can’t
Don’t treat me as if you’ve met a defeated person


There are many failures
but only one success
That is right now (Hey)
Look at me now


To me, there is only
One voice (One voice)
One dream (One dream),
One chance (One chance)
I can do it – One wish (One wish),
One soul (One soul),
One time (One time, Hey)
With all my heart (Let’s go Let’s go)
They look at me
with expectant eyes
The light that shines on me is bright
My desperate dreams are
now in front of my eyes
Sing a song with
One voice (One voice)
One voice (One voice)
One voice (One voice) One voice,
To me, there is only
One voice

Thank you, the lyrics seem really good. Too bad it's kind of hard to follow the lyrics while listening to the song, to get the right impression. it's like the sentences don't go along the verses, like don't know where a new verse starts and where the other ended :D that's the only improvement i would change in the way the translations are layed in here. if you get my point? i'm not good at explaining what i mean =/ but like if you take a look in here
you'll see that they're in parts like that? :D it's easier to follow the song while looking at the lyrics ^^ but i don't know how hard it is to make it like this since i've never translated any songs but i wish that it could be modified like this :D and if there is a repetation in some verses it would be there like that. it would be helpful ^^ thank you anyway, and i hope i didn't confuse or anyting :blink: ?

[Edit]: Thank you! Now it's really good!

Great! Thx for the english trans. BoA is a such a great song writer. Feels like a lot of meaning in it. I love the shadow's lyrics...it really is a depiction of BoA I love it. Its kinda sad to read and think of all the hardship she had to go thru. Thats y I love her and will support her always! Thx again, but I wish she had more happy love songs.
