Jang Beom June – karaoke (노래방에서)

I researched how love came true
Calculating all sorts of situations and methods
Because I was kind of ugly back then

Finding out your favorite song was a must
There was so much falsetto
I was very careful with the mic

So I went to the karaoke and sang her favorite song
Acting indifferent, acting like I didn’t practice, I sang
After I sang the song, I imagined her reaction
Then thought I should sing better as I hummed the song

Practicing a song because of love is part of nature
Even the flying birds sing love songs
If only it could open the doors of possibility
But then I found out she had a boyfriend, that was my mistake
Afterwards, I went to the karaoke and comforted my complicated feelings
I went to the karaoke alone for months

That’s how going to the karaoke became my hobby and singing her favorite song
Acting like I was alright, like I wasn’t sad, as I sang
After I sang the song, I was on my way home
Then suddenly, I got a messaged from her, asking to go to karaoke

So I was following her and walking
Acting like I was alright but actually I was so nervous
Even if she’s completely fine, I’m not fine at all
But she looked at me and said she’s not fine either
And she asked what this meant

So we left the karaoke and after I walked her home
I wondered what just happened, if this is alright, growing more and more blank
With no cell phone back then, I couldn’t sleep till the early dawn
So I just hummed her favorite song
So I just hummed her favorite song
