For You

Maybe we’re just two people entangled each other in a complicated fate. Everyday, I’m in debt to you as much as I can’t pay you back. Sometimes like lovers, otherwise like strangers, is it okay to keep living like this? Even after all those mistakes and frequent breakups, you’re always there.” –Yim Jae Bum, For You [translated lyrics]


Seems like there’s no ending when we talk about Yim Jae Bum. This legendary rocker of South Korea surely has so many hits. Dalam episode 89 program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”, Yim Jae Bum tampil sebagai legend yang lagu-lagunya dibawakan ulang oleh para juniornya. Episode tersebut ditayangkan pada tanggal 23 Februari 2013 pada channel KBS dan pada tanggal 16 Maret 2013 di KBS World. Salah satu lagu yang ditampilkan dalam episode tersebut adalah one of his biggest hits yang bertajuk “For You”. Dalam episode tersebut, “For You” dibawakan oleh maknae dari vocal group 4MEN, Shin Young Jae. Although he was the youngest performer on that episode, his emotion when he delivered the song was the best.
“For You” is a song that shows a sorrowful yet delicate love. This song tells the feeling of a man who has to let go of the woman he loves. It’s started with a sentence, “Maybe we’re just two people entangled each other in a complicated fate.” Somehow, that sentence was hitting me hard when I first heard it. Well, I guess there is no fate that’s not complicated in this life. There’s just one thing or two in this world that somehow make two people who love each other couldn’t be together. Something that makes their relationship would seem like a war-like love. Because the man doesn’t want the woman to keep hurting in that relationship, he should let her go even though he doesn’t want to.

Sometimes like lovers, otherwise like strangers, is it okay to keep living like this? Even after all those mistakes and frequent breakups, you’re always there. I know that you’re the only person in the world who could make me live.” Those are other sentences that were hitting me hard too. There are some couples that couldn’t be separated even though they fight all the times and breakup so many times. There are some people that couldn’t leave although the relationship is no longer could be helped anymore. The thing is, how much longer do they have to keep on living like that? It’s either separate or fix their relationship. But the other thing is, there are some couples that choose to rather stay in that war-like love than leave forever. Because actually, people are addicted to pain. That’s what makes them feel alive in this complicated life.
Dirilis pertama kali pada tanggal 16 Mei 2000, “For You” merupakan lead track dari album keempat Yim Jae Bum yang bertajuk “Story of Two Years”. Since then, this song became one of his famous songs and one of the most popular songs in South Korea. Album ini kemudian dirilis ulang pada tanggal 29 Maret 2003 karena sangat laris di pasaran. Once again, I fall in love with Yim Jae Bum’s voice because of this song. Moreover, I’m enchanted by the way he sings this song, his sincerity and pure feeling. Plus, I always love the lyrics of his songs. The more I try to understand his lyrics, the more I find it mesmerizing. No wonder that Yim Jae Bum is many singers’ role-model. He’s just amazing!

I know that you’re the only person in the world who could make me live. In order to live without regrets, I should hold onto you, but my rough thoughts and this insecure light in my eyes. You’ve seen them all and had to watch over them, this is probably a war-like love. Because I’m dangerous, because I love you, I have to leave you.” –Yim Jae Bum, For You [translated lyrics]
