You Don't Know Woman



Some people cannot easily open themselves towards other people. Moreover, they cannot easily open their heart and give it away. However, people like that are people who will give it all once they open their heart. And I belong to people like that. I’m not a kind of person who can easily open my heart for someone else. Moreover, I’m a kind of person who finds it hard to fall in love. However, once I fall in love, I’m willing to go all-in and put everything on it. I know I’m complicated enough to crave for closeness yet tend to seclude myself from everything that may harm me. And it all comes down to love and romance relationship. With all of the complication inside my own self caused by the mental illness that I have, I’m still able to gather all of my small heart and put up some courage to fight for this love that I feel. And though I know that I lack of so many things, I’m still able to gather all of my little heart and put up some confidence to protect the thing that I hold most dear. Though he doesn’t know now, I want the whole world to know. So that someday, sooner or later, the whole world can relay this sincere feeling towards my significant other.

No matter how many times our paths fail to cross, I’ll keep waiting. No matter how much my heart is hurt, I’ll keep smiling. Don’t you ever leave, don’t give up so hastily. Just see how my love only gets deeper even if you push me away. Even if you shut my mouth up, the whole world knows. –BUZZ, You Don’t Know Man (남자를 몰라)

It’s funny that when we fall in love, deeply and sincerely, no matter how hard we are being pushed away from our significant other, we can only find that our love is getting deeper. And this is what I feel now. And this certain song suits perfectly with my current mood. It’s a Korean song titled “You Don’t Know Man (남자를 몰라)”, performed by Korean rock band, BUZZ. The rock ballad track was released on April 24th 2006 as one of the singles taken from the band’s third studio album, “Perfect”. It was written by the members: Min Kyung Hoon (vocalist), Yoon Woo Hyun (guitarist), Kim Yae Joon (drummer), Son Sung Hee (guitarist), and Shin Joon Ki (bassist). “You Don’t Know Man (남자를 몰라)” (the title is also translated into English as “Don’t Know Men” or “Confusion about Men”) became one of the band’s signature songs. It follows the story of a man’s unwavering love for a woman that is unnoticed and unrequited; that no matter how painful it is, he won’t give up on the love because it’s also his only source of strength in life.

Sometimes I find it scary when I know too much about the person that I love. On the other hand, it’s quite sad when I know that there are things my significant other doesn’t understand about me. It’s that I always know whenever he lies to me. It’s that I always know whenever he meets someone else. It’s just that I choose to believe everything he says since I love him, even though I know it’s just a lie or an excuse. “Even if you’re always late, I’ll understand; I won’t ask you first before you tell me whom you met. Because of my stubborn love, I would want to believe every word you say even if it’s just an excuse. I wipe my tears pretending to rub my eyes. I make up reasons to meet you once again next time, because even if I spend more time sighing than being in your heart, I live only to see you.” And though it hurts to even see him, I keep making some excuses to see him. Though I cry when I see him, I will see him anyway. Since for me, meeting him is the only cure for all my pain. And it hurts me every time he doesn’t understand my intention of meeting him.
Sometimes I find it terrifying when I know too much about the person that I love. On the other hand, it’s quite frustrating when I know that there are things my significant other doesn’t understand about me. It’s that I know he doesn’t mean anything that he says whenever he’s angry. It’s that I know he does some things to intentionally hurt me. “I’ve tried to forget but it’s no use, not even a day has passed and I’m already looking for you again. You keep saying you prefer to be alone, but your sad words are always swept away by tears.” As much as I’m hurt by his cruel intention, I cannot help but crawling back to him every time. It’s that I always know I will never be enough for him. It’s just that I choose to believe that he will eventually come back to me. “It doesn’t matter whoever is in your heart, just look back at me once in a while. I have so much more to show to you, I can’t let you go so easily, don’t go.” And even after all that we’ve been through; I still have so much love to give. Hence I cannot send him away so easily; not until he knows all of my heart.
Until he knows all of my heart, though it hurts deeply, I’ll keep smiling. Though it will take a lifetime, I’ll be waiting. Time will prove that my unwavering love will only get deeper even if he pushes me away. “No matter how many times our paths fail to cross, I’ll keep waiting. No matter how much my heart is hurt, I’ll keep smiling. Don’t you ever leave, don’t give up so hastily. Just see how my love only gets deeper even if you push me away. Even if you shut my mouth up, the whole world knows. So how come only you don’t know? Why don’t you know the man who will protect you?” And the whole world will notice this sincere love that I have even if he shuts me off. Since the only reason why I can cope with this crazy situation is because my heart is beating for him. Though I cry a lot during this process, he has to know that I’m truly and sincerely happy whenever I’m with him. “My heart can endure only if it belongs to you. I may cry everyday but I’m happy everytime I see you. How come only you don’t know? Why don’t you know my unwavering love?”

A woman isn’t a woman unless she’s fought the fight. And here I am. I’m fighting for what I think is right. I’m fighting for what I hold most dear. I’m fighting for what I cherish the most. I’m fighting for my most precious. And I can’t get there on my own. Hence he cannot leave me here alone. If he has to meet someone else, I can understand. If he has to lie or make an excuse, I will still believe. If he cannot make time to meet me, I can wait. If this whole situation hurts me, I will still be alright. I only want him to know that in the end of the day, I’m the woman who will always take his side; even if he’s in doubt or having a change of heart. I only want him to know that eventually, I’m the woman who can always understand him better than anyone else; even if he’s changed or shifting. I only want him to know that I’m the woman who has a lot of fears because I know him too much, like a back of my hand. I only want him to know that though he has put so much pain and scar upon my heart, he is the reason why I’m alive and having the strength to go on. Despite a lot of things that we’ve been through together, there are still so many things that we can still learn from each other. Therefore, don’t you ever leave, and don’t give up so hastily.

My heart can endure only if it belongs to you. I may cry everyday but I’m happy everytime I see you. How come only you don’t know? Why don’t you know my unwavering love? –BUZZ, You Don’t Know Man (남자를 몰라)
