Hello Goodbye

The road where two of us walked on seems lonely today. Those times we looked like characters in fairytales. Rewinding time so that I can travel back to the days we smiled and cried.” –Girls’ Generation–TTS, Goodbye, Hello [translated lyrics]


Subunit pertama dari front-liner of South Korean girl groups, Girls’ Generation alias SNSD, merilis mini album pertamanya bertajuk “Twinkle”. Album ini dirilis pada tanggal 29 April 2012. Subunit yang diberi nama Girls’ Generation–TTS alias TaeTiSeo ini terdiri dari leader Taeyeon, Tiffany, dan maknae Seohyun. Dalam album ini terdapat sebuah lagu berjudul “Goodbye, Hello”. Lagu ini ditulis liriknya oleh Kim Boo Min, dengan aransemen musik dari komposer Hitchhiker.
This song tells about a girl who not being able to believe that she went through a break-up the day before. As she wakes up in the morning, the picture of her boy saying goodbye suddenly appears in her mind. That morning, she doesn’t feel sleepy at all. Even her coffee seems like more bitter than it used to be. While staring blankly at his photo, she whispers to herself that everything’s going to be alright, that she could get through it somehow. She feels strange and questioning why there must be someone who hurts more than other when a relationship ends. Is love a bad thing? Are all her sacrifices all these times not enough? Why does it bring so much pain in the end? In her thoughts, moments that she spent with him keep appearing as she walks down the street they used to walk together. Now, the street feels so empty. She feels sorry for herself that she thinks that way, that her mind still lingers around him. She could only wish that he never said goodbye, and nothing changed between them, and everything stayed as it used to be when she wakes up in the morning.


“Goodbye, Hello” is a track with a shuffle rhythm, a pop R n’ B which is combined with bubblegum mid-tempo ballad. Cuplikan dari lagu ini ditampilkan pada akhir music video (MV) dari title track “Twinkle”.Vokal Taeyeon, Tiffany, dan Seohyun berpadu manis dalam lagu ini, membuat para pendengar tidak akan menyangka bahwa lagu ini adalah lagu sendu sebelum memahami arti liriknya. Meskipun liriknya galau, melodi “Goodbye, Hello” sangatlah mood-boosting.

Hands that hold tight must not let go, eyes must be closed so that I can kiss you. When we meet again in next life, words that promise to be forever together. Hello, only say these words. Do not tell me goodbye. There is no such goodbye to us. Never say goodbye, hello.” –Girls’ Generation–TTS, Goodbye, Hello [translated lyrics]
