Dynamic Duo – BONGJESEON (봉제선)


We liked how different we were
We were amazed at how similar we were
So we took the thread of love
And held each other tight so wind and rain won’t come between us
But now we don’t hug, we don’t even smile
Our present is supported only by our past
Making us so pitiful
What went wrong?
No, we tried to fix something that wasn’t even broken
I don’t know the reason for your tears
I made you lonely
Why can’t we throw it away?
Why are we only looking for the needle?

Our stitches are loosening
The straight line of our stitches is becoming crooked
We try to button ourselves up
But cold wind keeps seeping in
The stitch lining, it’s like us right now

I just liked all of you
Even when you restricted me from doing things
Because I felt like I was being loved
I tied you up with the thread called trust
And made you wear a coat called love
But that suffocated you
And my heart kept aching
So I couldn’t loosen or tighten anything
And just stood there like a fool
We keep painfully poking at each other’s hearts
But why can’t we let go of this needle?

Our stitches are loosening
The straight line of our stitches is becoming crooked
We try to button ourselves up
But cold wind keeps seeping in
The stitch lining, it’s like us right now

It’s like us, it’s like us
These lingering feelings trap us
It’s like us
We’re different, we’re different
Trying to hypnotize ourselves seems like a stretch now
Thinking that I’ll be ok if I hold it inside
Became the root of this unhappiness right now
These pieces that are spreading apart and getting farther away
We’re holding onto them stubbornly
We’re forcing them together
Trapping them inside a frame
We’re like a broken mirror
Can’t put together what’s broken
Cuz we’ll keep getting cut
Sorry things aren’t as hot as before
I feel sorry as if I’m a sinner
Is this attachment or affection?
I know the answer but I still can’t solve the question
After a repetition of ripping and mending
We’ve become like rags
Our relationship has worn out and become miserable
It keeps getting holes
Making us even colder and more in pain
But this slough of attachment that holds onto me
It’s too deep so once again
I hold the needle and pierce it through the scars

Our stitches are loosening
The straight line of our stitches is becoming crooked
We try to button ourselves up
But cold wind keeps seeping in
The stitch lining, it’s like us right now

We liked being different, we hated being different
But now none of that matters to us anymore
