It's Gone, Not Around Any Longer

Monday, February 10, 2014

I can’t breathe now that you’re no longer here. I can’t even stay because you aren’t with me. I’m slowly dying but you’re not here anymore. I can’t smile because you’re no longer here. Because you’re not here, I hate seeing myself break down. I have nowhere to depend on now.” –SISTAR19, Gone Not Around Any Longer [translated lyrics]

Title song dari album ini, “Gone Not Around Any Longer”, meraih sukses besar di pasaran. Lagu ini adalah lagu hip hop ballad yang ditulis liriknya oleh Brave Brothers, dengan komposisi dan aransemen musik oleh Brave Brothers dan Elephant Kingdom. “Gone Not Around Any Longer” meraih dua ‘perfect all-kills’ dengan menduduki peringkat pertama seluruh tangga lagu mayor di Korea Selatan dan mempertahankan posisi tersebut selama dua minggu berturut-turut.
“Gone Not Around Any Longer” is a song that expresses the feelings of someone who’s drifting apart with their beloved ones. Tentang seseorang yang dihadapkan pada perpisahan yang tak terduga. “I didn’t know we would break up so easily, my tears won’t stop flowing.” Tentang seseorang yang tidak terbiasa akan kesendiriannya. “In my bathroom, your toothbrush was here then gone, your strong scent was here then gone. I just wanted to say that I love you, but your number is disconnected now. The pictures in the frame were here then gone, the fallen hair were here then gone. Walking on the road with an empty mind as tears keep flowing down.” Tentang seseorang yang kehilangan keseimbangan dan pegangan hidupnya. “I hate to see myself getting drunk and stumble. Can’t fight with you even if I want to now. Because you’re gone, I got no one to talk to now.” Tentang seseorang yang merindukan kebersamaan dengan orang yang telah pergi meninggalkannya. “Because you are not around any longer. Please come back to me.
Sebuah music video (MV) untuk lagu “Gone Not Around Any Longer” dirilis pada tanggal yang bersamaan dengan dirilisnya single album tersebut. MV dari “Gone Not Around Any Longer” dibintangi oleh Ahn Jae Hyun sebagai model dengan Joo Hee Sun sebagai sutradara. Tidak hanya meraih sukses komersial, lagu ini juga menjamur sebagai pop-culture di Korea Selatan. Banyak artis melakukan parodi atas lagu ini, bahkan lagu ini menginspirasi sebuah sketsa dalam segmen acara komedi paling populer di Korea Selatan, “Gag Concert”. Well, the song itself has an addictive melody that you can’t just ignore. It’s a beautiful yet sad R n’ B song, and it really shows the epitome of a after-breakup-loneliness.

Why am I withering away like a fool everyday? Like a darkened flower in the rain, without you, I just keep saying it’s painful, sad, alone. I fall asleep while crying again.” –SISTAR19, Gone Not Around Any Longer [translated lyrics]
