Lost in Love

The sadness slowly accumulates now. Although I know that you really left, I can only hope to treat you better when you comeback. Why did I behave so stupidly? Those times that you gave me are precious times of us, even things are over between us now.” –Girls’ Generation, Lost In Love [translated lyrics]


The leading girl group in South Korea, Girls’ Generation, has made their comeback in the beginning of 2013! SNSD merilis album keempatnya yang diberi tajuk “I Got A Boy” pada tanggal 1 Januari 2013. Perilisan album ini menandai kembalinya mereka ke dunia musik setelah hiatus sebagai sebuah kesatuan grup SNSD selama sekitar 14 bulan lamanya. Dalam album ini terdapat sebuah lagu yang dinyanyikan secara duet oleh salah dua vokalis utama SNSD, yaitu leader Taeyeon dan Tiffany. Lagu bertajuk “Lost In Love” ini merupakan lagu ballad yang ditulis liriknya dan diaransemen oleh komposer Park Chang Hyun.
“Lost In Love” honestly tells about what a girl feels after a break-up. Yes, it bluntly portraits the feeling of post break-up syndrome. “Are we really breaking up now? Or are we just separated for a moment like how we promised to be? This separation is already enough for me. Why haven’t I heard anything from you?” After the separation, we tend to think that somehow the separation is just for a while, and that they’ll be back and everything will be okay as normal as before. But sadly, our thoughts are wrong most of the times. “Am I still unable to accept it now that you turned around and announced our separation? I just want to accept the truth as it is. What are you doing now?” Getting rid off of someone that used to be always in our mind is not easy as it seems. Moreover, the separation is caused by our fault, which makes us feeling guilty as hell. But in the end, we still have to accept the reality that they’ll never come back. Foolishly, from the deep of our heart we still want to wait for them, no matter how long it would take, no matter how much pain we could get. Only thinking that we surely would love them right and better than before when they come back someday, only believing that they surely would find us again someday, it gives us strength to continue our lives on. “It’s all right for me to wait for you endlessly. When will you come to find me? I can always smile for you.”


Meskipun tidak dirilis sebagai promotional single, “Lost In Love” dibawakan secara live oleh Taeyeon dan Tiffany dalam program acara comeback special, Girls’ Generation’s Romantic Fantasy, yang disiarkan oleh MBC pada tanggal 1 Januari 2013. Selain itu, mereka juga menampilkan lagu ini dalam program acara musik KBS Music Bank pada tanggal 11 Januari 2013. Lately, lagu ini juga dinyanyikan pada program acara Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook. Taeyeon and Tiffany’s voices blend perfectly in this bitter-sweet song. Indeed, they chose right couple to successfully make this beautiful song alive and soulful.

I won’t be sad, for believing that you will come to find me someday. This belief makes my love stronger each day. And it gives me the energy to live on.” –Girls’ Generation, Lost In Love [translated lyrics]
