Only Tears

I don’t have anything I can give you, but I’m missing you. I can’t even give you loving words, but I’m missing you. I can’t even boldly wish for you to be mine, but I’m missing you. So I push you away, because I’m a guy who has nothing but his own heart.” –Infinite, Only Tears [translated lyrics]



Tahun 2012 adalah tahun yang bersinar bagi boy group Infinite. Mereka merilis mini album ketiga mereka, “Infinitize”, pada tanggal 15 Mei 2012, yang membawa mereka meraih triple crown dalam program acara musik untuk pertama kalinya. Sebelum album ini dirilis, Infinite meluncurkan sebuah prologue single berjudul “Only Tears”, tepatnya pada tanggal 8 Mei 2012. Unlike their previous singles, “Only Tears” is a ballad that shows a different side of Infinite.
“Only Tears” tells about a man who feels that he doesn’t deserve the love from someone that he loves now. He feels that he’s lacking in so many things and he has nothing to give her but his heart. He thinks that he doesn’t have the right to love her, that he neither can have her nor get hold of her. But the thing is, despite of those inferior feelings, he keeps missing her. As much as reality goes in a different direction, his heart keeps going toward her. As much as he tries to pull down his feeling, it keeps coming out. But in the end, he gotta let go, for the sake of her. As much as he loves her, he has to let go. And all that left is only tears.



Dengan lirik yang dirangkai oleh Song Sooyoon, musik yang disusun oleh Han Jaeho dan Kim Seungsoo, serta aransemen dari Han Boram, “Only Tears” lebih menonjolkan harmonisasi pada melodi dibandingkan dengan vokal. Mengingat bahwa Infinite adalah dance group dengan hits-nya yang enerjik, adalah sebuah terobosan ketika mereka meluncurkan sebuah ballad sebagai single. Meskipun demikian, “Only Tears” is not a fail at all. It’s heart-wrenching, and it’s good.

I can’t hold your hand, but I’m missing you. I’m worried I might just have to hold my tears, but I’m missing you. I can’t tell you to stay with me, but I’m missing you. It’s just too much but in the end, it’s because I’m a man who has nothing but his own heart.” –Infinite, Only Tears [translated lyrics]

(I love you more than anyone else in this world, so I hold back)

Oh nan ni son jabajul suga eobseo, missing you
(Oh I, I can’t hold your hand, but I’m missing you)
Nunmulman angilkkabwa, I’m missing you

Hamkke hajal suga eobseo, I’m missing you, ireohke doraseo
(I can’t tell you to stay with me, but I’m missing you, it’s just too much but in the end)
Naegen gajingeon simjangppun motnan nomira
(It’s because I’m a man who has nothing but his own heart)”
