Dong Young-bae (Korean: 동영배) better known by his stage name Taeyang (meaning sun in Korean) and Sol (when performing in Japan), is a South Korean singer-songwriter. After appearing in Jinusean’s music video “A-yo,” Taeyang began training under YG Entertainment at the age of 12. After six years of training, he made his debut in 2006 as a member of the South Korean boy band Big Bang.

In 2008, Taeyang began pursuing a solo career, releasing his first extended play Hot in 2008 followed by his first full-length studio album Solar in 2010. His second studio album Rise in 2014 peaked at number 112 on the US Billboard 200 Chart, becoming the highest ranking album by a Korean soloist to enter the chart.

This song was released in his 2nd solo album in 2014. Here’s the translation to the lyrics:

I’m forgetting you one by one, burying memories of you
As if it was just a typical dream, it’s all right
So I try to awkwardly smile once again
When your thick scent passes by me,
I die, kills me inside
Stop thinking about her, stop missing her
How can I erase you for today?
So I jump in my car go for a ride
Scream as if I’m crazy, hands in the air

My friends say it’s over, that it’ll be okay
As they comfort me with a smile
But I just want you by my side right now

I mindlessly chat with them
Get drunk in the music
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM
As if I forgot you, I just start laughing
Spending nights with strange faces
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM

I remember your pretty eyes that let me go
So coldly, as if it was nothing
But now I’m indifferent
If you can peacefully be happy,
I’m okay with that, it’s okay

That’s a lie, that’s the truth
I get confused thousands of times a day
Should I start seeing someone new?
I start to look, wandering here and there as if I’m crazy

It’s over now, it’s okay
As if it’s nothing, I talk about you
But I just want you by my side right now

I mindlessly chat with them
Get drunk in the music
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM
As if I forgot you, I just start laughing
Spending nights with strange faces
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM

I think of you, my heart aches,
I can’t stop thinking about you, can’t stop
I think of you, my heart aches,
I can’t stop thinking about you, can’t stop

I mindlessly chat with them
Get drunk in the music
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM
As if I forgot you, I just start laughing
Spending nights with strange faces
Holding on to the end of the night as I dance
And when I think of you, it’s 1AM
