Closer to You

There are so many things I couldn’t say, you’ve never heard it even once before. But I’m not that kind of person who just loves anyone that I see in front of me. Because among the many people in this world, to me, I could only see you.” –Taeyeon, Closer (OST. To The Beautiful You) [translated lyrics]


Taeyeon, leader sekaligus lead vocalist dari girl group Girls’ Generation, menyumbangkan suara emasnya sekali lagi untuk soundtrack serial drama. Kali ini ia membawakan sebuah lagu berjudul “Closer” untuk serial drama “To The Beautiful You” yang diproduksi oleh SM Entertainment. Lagu ballad manis ini ditulis liriknya oleh Kim Jeong Bae, serta diaransemen oleh komposer handal Kenzie. “Closer” dirilis sebagai single “To The Beautiful You OST Part 4” pada tanggal 5 September 2012. Lagu ini kemudian menjadi bagian dari album “To The Beautiful You: Original Soundtrack” yang dirilis pada tanggal 19 September 2012.
“Closer” tells about a girl who could love only one man, that man who’s always in her eyes. No matter what the future brings, as long as she’s with him now, everything would be just fine. No matter what will happen after that, even if they might forget each other someday, even if they got separated someway, her heart would always remember. For her, it’s only him, because she couldn’t see anyone else but him, because she’s not a kind of person who could easily fall in love. Once she falls in love, she would follow wherever it takes, just like a little child. All she need now is for him to get closer to her, to hold her tightly and never let her go, even just for now.




While down-tempo OST songs definitely make for one of the things often allocated to Taeyeon, there’s nothing wrong with simple things done well. Quite as usual, Taeyeon rarely disappoints with her vocal control or range, making the whole song a refined affair where listening is concerned. While some may prefer a more charging OST, it’s still worth a listen for the SNSD leader. Even the live version would have to be the pick, for its remarkable consistency to the recorded version, and for proof of her vocal ability. Here comes the new ‘Queen of soundtrack’. Baek Ji Young, you better watch your back out!

I’m standing here as I only see you. I don’t know what will happen after our love. Just like child who is always this way. Would you warmly hold me closer?” –Taeyeon, Closer (OST. To The Beautiful You) [translated lyrics]

“Haji mothan mari neomu manhayo hanbeondo dangshineun deutji mothaetjiman
(There are so many things I couldn’t say, you’ve never heard it even once before)
Nae ape boyeojin nugungal aneunal saranghan geureon sarameun anieyo
(But I’m not that kind of person who just loves anyone that I see in front of me)

Sesange geumaneun saramdeul soge naegen ojig geudaega boyeojyeotgie
(Because among the many people in this world, to me, I could only see you)

Geudaeman bomyeo seoitneun geolyo I sarang hooen nan jal moreugetseoyo
(
I’m standing here as I only see you, I don’t know what will happen after our love)
Aju eorinaiga hangsang geureohadeushi jigeum I sungan ddaseuhi annajullaeyo
(Just like child who is always this way, would you warmly hold me right now?)

Eonjenga natseo ireumi dweeodo nae gaseumi geu chueoki da gieokhaltenikka
(Even if someday your name became unfamiliar, my heart will keep all the memories)
Hogshirado apeun ibyeori ondaedo oneuleun geureon saenggakeun haji mayo
(Even if a sad farewell came between us, let’s not think about that today)

I sesang geumaneun saramdeul soge naegen ojig geudaega boyeojyeotgie
(Because among the many people in this world, I could only see you)

Geudaeman bomyeo seoitneun geolyo I sarang hooen nan jal moreugetseoyo
(I’m standing here as I only see you, I don’t know what will happen after our love)
Aju eorinaiga hangsang geureohadeushi deo gakkai deo ddaseuhi annajullaeyo
(Just like child who is always this way, would you warmly hold me closer?)

Ijen nan honjaga aningeolyo geu jarieseo oneul naege oh geudaemani
(Now I’m not alone, only you who have come to me from that place today)

Geudaeman naye jeonbuingeolyo I sarang hooen nan jal moreugetseoyo
(
Only you are my everything, I don’t know what will happen after our love)
Aju eorinaiga hangsang geurohadeuti deo gakkai deo ddaseuhi annajullaeyo
(Just like child who is always this way, would you warmly hold me closer?)

Deo gakkai deo ddaseuhi annajullaeyo
(Closer, warmer, would you hold me?)”
