About

“We often get alienated or get blamed for being different. But we are unique because we are different, and that gives the value of existence.”

Celebrity Lyrics

KoreanRomanizationEnglish
세상의 모서리Sesangui moseoriThe world’s edge
구부정하게 커버린Gubujeonghage keobeorinSharply angled
골칫거리 outsiderGolchitgeori outsiderA troubled outsider
걸음걸이, 옷차림Georeumgeori, otcharimThe walk, the style
이어폰 너머 playlistEarphone neomeo playlistThrough the earphones
음악까지 다 minorEumakkkaji da minorThe music is all minor


넌 모르지


Neon moreuji


You have no idea
떨군 고개 위Tteolgun gogae wiAbove your lowered head
환한 빛 조명이Hwanhan bit jomyeongiWhat the bright lights are
어딜 비추는지Eodil bichuneunjiShining towards
느려도 좋으니Neuryeodo joeuniIt’s fine to take your time
결국 알게 되길Gyeolguk alge doegilBut I hope you notice, at last
The one and onlyThe one and onlyThe one and only
You are my celebrityYou are my celebrityYou are my celebrity


잊지마


Ijjima


Don’t forget
넌 흐린 어둠 사이Neon heurin eodum saiAmong the cloudy dark
왼손으로 그린 별 하나Wensoneuro geurin byeol hanaYou’re a star painted with a left hand
보이니BoiniCan’t you see
그 유일함이 얼마나 아름다운지 말야Geu yuilhami eolmana areumdaunji maryaHow beautiful a true uniqueness can be
You are my celebrityYou are my celebrityYou are my celebrity

지쳐버린 표정 마치


Jichyeobeorin pyojeong machi


Your weary face looks like
전원을 꺼놓은 듯이Jeonwoneul kkeonoeun deusiSomeone powered you off
심장소린 too quietSimjangsorin too quietThe heartbeat went too quiet
네가 가진 반짝거림Nega gajin banjjakgeorimThe glow you have
상상력, identity까지 모조리 dietSangsangryeok, identitykkaji mojori dietThe imagination, identity are on diet


넌 모르지


Neon moreuji


You have no idea
아직 못다 핀Ajik motda pinStill not fully bloomed
널 위해 쓰여진Neol wihae sseuyeojinWritten for you
오래된 사랑시Oraedoen sarangsiA bygone love poem
헤매도 좋으니Hemaedo joeuniIt’s fine to scowl
웃음 짓게 되길Useum jitge doegilBut I wish you could smile, at last
The one and onlyThe one and onlyThe one and only
You are my celebrityYou are my celebrityYou are my celebrity

발자국마다 이어진 별자리

An autograph written in steps
그 서투른 걸음이 새겨놓은 밑그림Geu seotureun georeumi saegyeonoeun mitgeurimA drawing sketched in sullen steps
오롯이 너를 만나러 가는 길Orosi neoreul mannareo ganeun gilThe path to meet you solely
그리로 가면 돼 점선을 따라Geuriro gamyeon dwae jeomseoneul ttaraThe path along the dotted line


잊지마

이 오랜 겨울 사이I oraen gyeoul saiDuring the long winter
언 틈으로 피울 꽃 하나Eon teumeuro piul kkot hanaA flower can bloom between the frozen cracks

하루 뒤 봄이 얼마나 아름다울지 말야Haru dwi bomi eolmana areumdaulji maryaHow beautiful tomorrow’s spring is to be
