Somewhere Someday

Sunday, February 12, 2017



Does love make you scared? Is love making you afraid? As a human, it is natural if we have some fears. However, I personally think that a fear of love is not one of them. When people say that they have a fear for love then probably they just do not realize that they are actually afraid of something else, but they cover it in the concept of love instead. It is just like when someone is afraid of losing the person they love, then it does not mean that they are afraid of love; it means that they are afraid of detachment instead. It is just like when someone is scared of getting in too deep with the person they love, then it does not mean that they are scared of love; it means that they are scared of commitment instead. I believe that it is not in the concept of love itself that is so terrifying for some people. On the other hand, I believe that what makes them terrified is the practical of love. It is not in the term of feeling; it is in the way their thoughts flow. And as a human myself, I do have fears toward many things. Though I understand that love is not one of them, I do have fears toward some aspects that are related to love, and romance relationship.

I’m looking at you like that again, as if it’s the first time, as if I won’t see you when tomorrow comes. Love makes me so impatient like this; you’re the last moment of my life that i want to reach in the end.” –Sung Si Kyung, Somewhere Someday (어디선가 언젠가)

Today’s song lyric I would like to talk about it a Korean song titled “Somewhere Someday (어디선가 언젠가)”, performed by Korean balladeer, Sung Si Kyung. This pop ballad track was recorded as the original soundtrack for the famous Korean drama series, “Legend of the Blue Sea”. It was released on December 8th 2016 as a single album titled “Legend of the Blue Sea OST Part 5”. An official music video was uploaded onto 1theK official YouTube account on December 7th 2016. Sung Si Kyung, the King of Ballad, sang his soothing voice in a soft melodic track suited for the main characters couple in the drama series. It is a song about fears people have regarding to love and the romance relationship with their significant other; about being afraid just to think that we might lose that person somewhere; about being afraid just to think that the person might leave someday.

Do you have fear of losing something? A fear like that only comes to something we hold most dear. We love that thing so much that we are never ready to lose it. We care for that person so deep that we are never ready to lose them. We cherish that person sincerely that we are never ready to lose them. Hence fear comes as a package with love. When we love someone dearly, deeply, and sincerely, we fear of losing them. We fear of losing the feeling. We fear of losing ourselves when we are with that person. We fear of losing the togetherness we’ve had and shared with that person. Moreover, we fear of not being able to be the person who can fulfill them. We fear of not being able to be the person whom they want us to be. We fear of not being able to be the person who is good enough for them. We are afraid hence comes the insecurities. “I’m late again, it’s me the one who always makes you waiting, I always feel sorry whenever you’re smiling. Precious thing always makes me afraid, and you are my dearest that I’m having for the first time.”
Do you have fear of getting in too deep with something? A fear like that only comes to something we hold most dear. We love that thing so much that we are never ready to commit to it. We care for that person so deep that we are never ready to commit to them. We cherish that person sincerely that we are never ready to commit to it. Hence fear comes as a package with love. When we love someone dearly, deeply, and sincerely, we fear of committing to them. We fear of what’s to come. We fear of hurting and being hurt. We fear of goodbye. We fear of separation. Moreover, we fear of not being able to be the person who can make them stay. We fear of not being able to be the person who can assure them to always be with us. We fear of not being able to be the person who can love them better. We are scared hence comes the impatience. “I’m looking at you like that again, as if it’s the first time, as if I won’t see you when tomorrow comes. Love makes me so impatient like this; you’re the last moment of my life that i want to reach in the end.”
We fear of losing the person we love since we understand it all too well that it is the first time for us to feel the love that is so strong like this. We fear of committing to the person we love since we realize it all too well that the person is the only one we want to be with in the end. We fear because we love deeply and sincerely. “Somewhere, someday, I met you and fell in love; when I look at you as if you’re someone going far away, something inside of me keeps hurting. Somewhere, someday, I’m scared that we might have to get far apart and I have to forget you again, even when I’m holding your hand.” We do not even know since when it all started –the love and those fears as a package– but one thing that we are sure about is that nothing is coincidence. There has to be some reason why we meet and fall in love with that person. “There is no such thing as coincidence; it all has been decided like this.” There must be the reason why that person is the one who can make us feel love and fears at the same time, unlike any other people who just come and go.

Perhaps the reason is because we’re finally meeting our what-so-called soulmate. It is someone whom we are destined to be bound together. It is someone whom probably we have met in our past life and fallen in love with. “You’re living somewhere inside of me. Even if I have to go back to the beginning, I’ll be at that place again. Let me look at you a bit closer once again, so that I can remember.” It is someone whom no matter how many times we’re born again, we will always meet and fall for them. It is always easy to start over with the one you hold most dear, indeed, even though the fear is inevitable. What if we get far apart again with that person? What if we have to forget that person again?  Those thoughts scare us even during the moment when we’re holding that person’s hand. As if we’re someone who loved them and said farewell to them at some point, it hurts inside us every time we see that person. However, we know it all too well that even if we have to live from the start, we’ll be there. We will always be there. We will always be here.

Somewhere, someday, I met you and fell in love; when I look at you as if you’re someone going far away, something inside of me keeps hurting. Somewhere, someday, I’m scared that we might have to get far apart and I have to forget you again, even when I’m holding your hand.” –Sung Si Kyung, Somewhere Someday (어디선가 언젠가)
