There is a person that you can’t have even when you love them. Just look at me, I’m next to you but I can’t have you.” -Bank, You Can’t Be Mine [translated lyrics]

“Can’t Have You” is a song about one-sided love. This theme never gets old for me. And although there are so many songs that tell about one-sided love, “Can’t Have You” has this kind of sensitivity that differs it from the others. Its lyrics are like telling us a story.With a drunken voice, you suddenly said that you remember something. Feeling like something sad would happen, I run to you right away that night. As you greeted me with those blurry eyes, you’re telling me, that you could throw away the rest of your life for the person who broke up with you.” For the sake of the one we love, we could throw everything away and do anything right away, only to find that that person would do exactly the same for someone else. That’s the heart-wrenching thing from a one-sided love. With a tearful voice, you said that you need me. That’s enough for me, if I could be a help for you. As you looked at me with those reddened eyes, you’re asking me, whether if I knew that the other name for love was pain.” For the sake of ourselves, who pitifully fall in love with someone who pitifully falls in love with somebody else, we keep telling ourselves that it’s enough just to be beside them and comfort them whenever they need. As they keep hurting in front of us, they don’t know that we feel the same exact pain because of them. After comforting you, who got so thin in just a few days, I was on my way home. I said the words that I couldn’t say even until the end to myself. There is a person that you can’t have even when you love them. Just look at me, I’m next to you but I can’t have you.” Those last two sentences just hit me hard. There’s a person that you can’t have even when you love them. Just look at me, I’m next to you but I can’t have you.

First released in 1995, “You Can’t Be Mine” was the most beloved song in that year. It was a traditional rock ballad that showed off the stylish emotion and sensitivity in the 90s. It’s a really well-made rock ballad with the essence of explosive voice. Pada tahun 2013, “You Can’t Be Mine” dirilis versi ballad remake-nya oleh solois wanita, Hi.ni, untuk mengisi jajaran soundtrack serial drama hits populer “Reply 1994”. Lagu ini dirilis pada tanggal 21 November 2013 sebagai single “Reply 1994 OST Part 4”. Hi.ni merilis dua versi dalam album tersebut, termasuk versi akustik dari lagu ini. Sebagai theme song, “You Can’t Be Mine” menjadi latar bagi kisah kasih tak sampai antara para karakter yang ada dalam serial drama “Reply 1994”. Sebagai soundtrack, sebelumnya pada tahun 2009 "You Can't Be Mine" juga dibuat versi remake oleh aktor Hyun Bin untuk serial drama "Friend, Our Legend". I love this song so much and I’m so caught up in its lyrics. For those who have been in a one-sided love must know what it feels.

As you looked at me with those reddened eyes, you’re asking me, whether if I knew that the other name for love was pain.” -Bank, You Can’t Be Mine [translated lyrics]
