Lyrical Monday: Gary & Jung In - Your Scent

Monday, June 02, 2014


My Melody of Lyrics series gets a name change today. From now on, the series will be called Lyrical...um, whatever-day-it-is. Today, as you can see, it's called Lyrical Monday. And from now on this series will not be perhaps as focused on analysing the lyrics of a song (though I will still do that sometimes) but it's mostly going to be a way for me to introduce my you guys to some new songs that you might have not heard yet.  

But why we're here today is because everyone's favourite Monday boyfriend Kang Gary and singer Jung In, who's a frequent collaborator of Leessang's, released a brand new single on May 27th titled "Your Scent", and I've been listening to this song like crazy for the last few days. 

The song doesn't need a further introduction really as it's a very laid-back R&B hip-hop track with a lovely melody that is just very easy to listen to. Meanwhile, the lyrics are true to Gary's romantic style, expressing the sweet emotions of a person in love. "Your Scent" is perhaps a bit more for the mainstream tastes than Leessang's or Gary's usual repertoire, but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. 


English translation:

Your hair is tied back so I can see your forehead
It bounces every time you walk
At the end of your pants that wrap around your smooth legs are light sneakers
Everything about you is simple but you give off beauty
Wherever you go, you have good manners
Your smile and the way you talk make my rough thoughts brighter
You’re like a tattoo on top of my heart
You fill up my heart so much that I can’t breathe
After we spend the night together
Your scent that remains at the tip of my blankets get me drunk as I fall asleep
After holding your white skin and soft cheeks
I want to bother you all night
A girl who knows how to enjoy her life rather than money
A possessor of a charm of unconventional beauty
You have the scent of a human, an untainted and natural person in this complex world

I like you so much because of your human scent
I’m even more attracted to your clumsy appearance
If I hesitate, I might lose you
So I’m going crazy

I lived like a carriage racing through a dirt road
I may look rough but if you take me apart, I’m a man with many scars
Like the smoke from a factory chimney
I lived however life went, by myself
I worked as I sweat so money always overflows
But I hadn’t found a love that I wanted to share it with
But you’re a bit different
A girl who knows how to long for a person’s hand like an LP

After my hard days, after I got to know you
Everything is going back to its place
After my hard days, after I got to know you
Everything is breathing again

I like you so much because of your human scent
I’m even more attracted to your clumsy appearance
If I hesitate, I might lose you
So I’m going crazy

Just like the sky looking like the sky
Just like the wind feeling like the wind
Just the way you are
Not made up in any way
I’m falling for that beauty

I like you so much because of your human scent
I’m even more attracted to your clumsy appearance
If I hesitate, I might lose you
So I’m going crazy
