Back

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Remember, inside your drawer; remember, inside your wallet. Those traces that I’ve left behind, engrave them without leaving anything out. Reminisce, inside that photo; inside the space that still remains. So that all of my scent, all of my breath; it won’t disappear.” –Infinite, Back [translated lyrics]

Boy group populer asal Korea Selatan, Infinite, merilis studio album kedua mereka, “Season 2”, pada tanggal 21 Mei 2014.

Infinite’s “Back” is a perfect track for this month of broken heart. Just like its title, “Back” is a song about someone’s pleading for his/her beloved one to come back. There’s always one person for everyone that they won’t be able to forget no matter what; no matter how deep they’ve been hurt by that person, no matter how miserable they’ve been because of that person. They always remember, and so they hope that the person will always remember them too; remember that they’re the one whose photograph used to be put inside that person’s drawer and wallet; remember that they’re the one who used to be there for that person. “Remember, inside your drawer; remember, inside your wallet. Those traces that I’ve left behind, engrave them without leaving anything out. Reminisce, inside that photo; inside the space that still remains. So that all of my scent, all of my breath; it won’t disappear.” There’s always one person for everyone that they can’t forget no matter what; no matter how many seasons have passed, no matter how long they’ve been separated. They always reminisce, and so they hope that the person will always reminisce them too; reminisce all the memories that they’ve spent together. “I keep thinking of each memory that I should have forgotten. Season after season, I keep wanting you back in my arms.”
What’s the hardest part of a breakup? For some people, it’s the lingering memories; the longing feeling that is built up by countless memories they’ve shared together. That longing makes them feel like dying, and there’s no one can save them but that person. And so they hope the person would save them, instead of losing them like a passing wind in the spring; instead of leaving them with a scent of wounded past days. “Please, like the spring day that goes by, like the wind that passes over, don’t lose me. Can you save me? That’s right, like the scent of wounded past in those many days, don’t be that. Can you save me?” To be remember, and to not be erased from that person’s memory, that’s all they want. “Don’t place me in time, don’t try to reminisce me. Please, don’t erase every single bit of me.” There’s always one person for everyone that they won’t forget no matter what; one person that can make them abandoning any pride and begging to come back. They always wait, and so they hope that the person will come back to them, and save them from dying. “Come back. I want you back. Our memories, don’t place them in my passing time. Come back. I want you back. I’ll be waiting, as long as I remain here, just turn around. I say save me.”

I keep thinking of each memory that I should have forgotten. Season after season, I keep wanting you back in my arms. Please, like the spring day that goes by, like the wind that passes over, don’t lose me. Can you save me? That’s right, like the scent of wounded past in those many days, don’t be that. Can you save me?” –Infinite, Back [translated lyrics]
