JYP – Still Alive (살아있네)

I’m a dancing artist and how old am I?
I’m forty and add four more but I’m still in my prime
I’m different from the stars that rise and fall these days
All you kids who tried to look cool but disappeared, watch carefully

No pretending to be cute, no pretending to be fake
No comments like “my girlfriend is you all”
I look like a delinquent, I party like that
And I’m still alive

Records became cassettes
Cassette tapes became CDs
CDs became downloads and streaming
Even in the 90s, in the 2000s, in the 2010s
I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I’m still alive

Even in the 90s, in the 2000s, in the 2010s

Now kids, gather around, you know who I am?
I’m different from the oppas that you like, right?
I debuted before those oppas were born
But I still get awards in front of those oppas

I’m sorry, I hope your oppas stay alive for a long time like me
But that’s really not as easy as it’s said
So I am a bit worried
But if they look and study me, the percentage will rise

It’s not the strong who last long
It’s those who last long who are strong
It’s not the strong who last long
It’s those who last long who are strong

Gotta do it for 10 years to be called a singer
Gotta do it for 20 years to be called a star
Gotta do it for 30 years to be called a legend
That’s why I’m still hungry

Hoping to be a bridge between k-pop music & k-pop fans who don't understand the Korean language.
