Hold My Hand

You’re getting this feeling, you’re trembling inside. How long will you merely steal glances at me? Tell me your thoughts, I mean stop pretending you know nothing. Just do as your heart says to you. Hold my hand now. Hurry and hold my hand.” –IU, Hold My Hand/Take My Hand (OST. The Greatest Love) [translated lyrics]



Lee Ji Eun, solois perempuan yang terkenal dengan nama panggung IU, menyumbangkan suara emasnya untuk mengisi jajaran soundtrack serial drama “The Greatest Love”. Terlebih lagi, penyanyi dan musisi muda berbakat ini menulis dan mengaransemen sendiri lagu tersebut. Lagu yang berjudul “Hold My Hand”, atau yang dikenal juga dengan judul “Take My Hand”, ini dirilis pada tanggal 25 Mei 2011 sebagai single “The Greatest Love OST Part 4”.
“Hold My Hand” expresses the childish feelings and experiences that most people get through when they fall in love. When a girl and a boy are attracted to each other, they often act like nothing happen because of their shyness. Fast heartbeat, trembling feeling, stealing glances, but know nothing to do. As the boy keeps looking away when the girl suddenly bust him staring at her, as the boy keeps sitting next to her in silence without talking to her, the girl begins to feel anxious. Dreaming about him every night, silly and nervous laughs, fluttering heart when the cell phone rings, missing him in every way, but still he doesn’t do anything yet. As the girl feels the same way as the boy, she wants him to quickly make a move. Stop pretending and just do what your heart wants to do. Stop thinking and just hold her hand, just take her heart away.



Lagu pop ini kemudian menjadi bagian dari album “The Greatest Love: Original Soundtrack” yang dirilis pada tanggal 14 Juli 2011. “Hold My Hand” merupakan single keempat yang dirilis oleh IU, sekaligus merupakan lagu pertama yang ia ciptakan sendiri. Melalui lagu manis ini, IU membuktikan bahwa dirinya tidak hanya sekadar penyanyi muda yang terkenal berkat suara emas, kecantikan, dan keahliannya memetik gitar saja, melainkan juga sebagai seorang pencipta lagu.

What should I do? From far away, you’re walking over here, our eyes meet. How long will you act as if you know nothing? This is love, that is, between you and me. I like you, so much that I can’t take it any more. That’s enough, you don’t have to think any further. Just do as your heart says to you.” –IU, Hold My Hand/Take My Hand (OST. The Greatest Love) [translated lyrics]

“Neukkimi ojanha tteolligo itjanha
(You’re getting this feeling, you’re trembling inside)
Eonjekkaji nunchiman bol geoni
(How long will you merely steal glances at me?)
Ne mameul malhaebwa ttancheong piuji mallan mariya
(Tell me your thoughts, I mean stop pretending you know nothing)
Ne mam ganeun geudaero jigeum nae soneul jaba
(Just do as your heart says to you, hold my hand now)
Eoseo nae soneul jaba
(Hurry and hold my hand)

Uyeonhi gogaereul dollil ttae mada nuni majuchineun geon

Myeochilbam naenae kkumsoge natana bamsae nareul goerophineun geon
(You keep appearing in my dreams for several nights, you torment me all night long)
Geu manheun binjari jungeseo hapil nae yeopjaril goreuneun geon
(Out of all the empty seats here, you just had to choose the seat next to mine)
Nado moreuge eoneusae sireomneun useum heulligo itdaneun geon
(Without even realizing it, this silly laughter starts pouring out of me)
Geureom mal dahaetji mwo uri yaegi jom halkka
(Well I guess I’m done talking, shall we have a little chat then?)

Haendeupon jindonge simjangi deolkeok naeryeo antneundaneun geon
(When my cell phone vibrates, my heart sinks into my chest)
O nado moreuge eoneusae jitgujeun ne maltu jakku deutgo sipeungeol
(Before I knew it, I want to hear your mischievous way of talking over and over again)

Eotteokhae jeogi meolli georeoonda nuni majuchinda
(What should I do? From far away, you’re walking over here, our eyes meet)
Eonjekkaji neon moreuncheok halgeoni
(How long will you act as if you know nothing?)

Sarangi ongeoya neowa na mariya
(This is love, that is, between you and me)
Nega joha jeongmal mot gyeondil mankeum
(I like you, so much that I can’t take it any more)
Geugeomyeon doengeoya deoneun saenggakhaji mallan mariya
(That’s enough, you don’t have to think any further)
Ne mam ganeun geudaero
(Just do as your heart says to you)

Geunyang nae soneul jaba jigeum nae soneul jaba
(Just hold my hand, hold my hand now)”
