SHINee – Drive [Lyrics English Translation]

Drive

I drive along the road though there’s no destination
I’m just going where the blue signal lights call me
You’ve enchanted me, and there’s no turning back
A bad direction yet a happy ending, it gives me mixed feelings

Unconsciously
I chart a map

The green light calls me
And wondering if you’re standing at the end of it,
I turn my footsteps again
It grew distant intentionally
I feel that this direction itself is wrong
But I keep going towards you

There’s only one reason
Why I took the familiar left turn
And there will be only one reason
If I ever take the path that my heart opposes, it’s you

Once the firm traffic signs get engraved
I will be a stranger wherever I go
The afterimage that I see when I look outside the window
Makes me stop and look back
Does it look like you? Is it real?

Even if you’re indifferent
I have no other road

The green light calls me
Is there really an end to it?
Am I already too late?
What will be there at the end of this blind tunnel?
I hope it will be you

There’s only one reason
Why I took the familiar left turn
And there will be only one reason
If I ever take the path that my heart opposes, it’s you

I just keep hovering around you every day
So that I, who am weak, will be able to reach you just once

One rough light word from you can control me
Though I shake my head
I go back to you like a steering wheel
That turns without a will of its own
You coil around me

I don’t know why
Even if I wander around
On all the roads in the world, I have only one destination
And that is you
Who smiles so clearly upon this road that is not even a road at night

SHINee – Electric [Lyrics English Translation]

Electric

I observe you and analyze you
You’re beautiful
Yeah, I want to know you more

You outstrip my expectations
You’re amusing
I want to unearth you

If our fingers touch, how would it feel?
Electric Electric

The stimulus is so deep and vivid that
It cannot be measured in numbers
And the long and explosive reaction
Stays deep in the cells all over my body
The explosive reaction
Electric Electric

The sight of you activates my neurons
You’re an unchartable territory
The mystery at the centre of my curiosity
You’re the one and only theory
That I should discover
If I hold you, it will prove all my theories

I grow warm, joyous and giddy
Yeah, my hypothesis is true

If your breath mingles with them, how will the variables change?
Electric Electric

The stimulus is so deep and vivid that
It cannot be measured in numbers
And the long and explosive reaction
Stays deep in the cells all over my body

I want to know, You’re so special
I am about to try out
The experiment that will awaken you to me

If I become bolder, will everything go awry?
Electric Electric

The one who binds me so vaguely
The one who closed their eyes without a fight
The one who cannot be explained under any premise
I am dead certain that you’re my answer
My definite answer

With this electric feeling
electric electric
With this electric feeling

SHINee – Chemistry [Lyrics English Translation]

Chemistry

I have no intension of leaving you alone like a good boy
Don’t even think about sitting there like a frozen painting

When we face each other, we’re more perfect than ever
I run to you and shake you up a little more

So that your skin touches mine
So that it feels real, try to feel it more
Try to catch me, who’s waiting with open arms

So that you’ll fall deeper,
I keep provoking you
I show you everything
I pour down a profusion of impact on you

Now do you realize it’s real?
So that we’ll be immersed in the same emotion,
Let’s leave it to love
That will shake us up endlessly

Alright alright
Let’s be honest with the feelings that follow
Alright alright yeah
Our Chemistry is growing deeper

Even if you keep your distance as if it’s someone else’s business
Your defensive attitude won’t take you anywhere

With my whole body Baby
I will throw myself at you
So that I can feel everything with you down to the tiniest detail

The glare has grown strong
The scent you smell and the touch on your skin
I will feel all of it as if I were you, and you know that

So that you’ll fall deeper,
I keep provoking you
I show you everything
I pour down a profusion of impact on you

Now do you realize it’s real?
So that we’ll be immersed in the same emotion,
Let’s leave it to love
That will shake us up endlessly

Your breath that has become rugged
And the Motion that follows you
When I come closer baby
Everything grows hazy

The more crucial it becomes
The more we want to
Simply feel each other Yeah

The left eye that is winking, Like you
I hope that your eyes will follow Ma move
Each time we feel that we’ve become each other
Everything feels so real, each minute, each second

So that you will fall throughout
I arouse all your senses
If you lay everything down
And dive right in, everything will be perfect

Do you feel something real now?
So that we’ll melt down in the same emotion,
Let’s leave it to the moment
That rages forth without restraint
Leave it to the moment
So that fall throughout, leave it to the moment
It arouses both of us

SHINee – Who Waits For Love 독감 [Lyrics English Translation]

Who Waits For Love

Lit. trans. – Bad Cold

I was looking for the echo that won’t return
And I lost my way after walking for so long
My heavy footsteps don’t even know
Why we drifted apart like this

Your short “goodbye”
Becomes a long rain and falls down
Ooh I don’t deserve even an umbrella
I’ve caught you like a bad cold

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
I don’t blame you for leaving me

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
The problem is with me, who loved you

The nasty fever won’t go down
The cold breeze that blows past me
Has given me the disease that is you
I can’t fight it off
Every day it’s hard to bear

My heart cannot be measured in terms of weight
My fever cannot be measured with this thermometer
It’s going to shatter again
It’s only me who suffers, I want to get rid of it
Now, get off me

Your short “goodbye”
Becomes a long rain and falls down
Ooh I don’t deserve even an umbrella
I’ve caught you like a bad cold

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
I don’t blame you for leaving me

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
The problem is with me, who loved you

Though I am walking the dark times
Please find me at least for once
Yeah baby

With these cough-like lyrics
And the melody that is like a monologue…

Will I be able to hold you if I see you again?
With this body that is frozen to the breaking point?
Those eyes and that warm voice,
I miss all of it like crazy

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
I don’t blame you for leaving me

Who waits for love
Who waits for love
The problem is with me, who loved you

One day, please reach your hand out to me too
Please turn around and look at me
For once, please find me Oh
For once, please find me
I will wait, so please come back

 

Oh my, the album cover ㅠㅠ It’s a fox sleeping on the moon. All the harsh edges softened into a cozy circle… Rest In Peace

SHINee – I Want You [Lyrics English Translation]

I Want You

A black melody sprawls
Inside a white ocean
And conjures up my you

The forgotten memories
And the splintered tears…
I wish all of it would rewind

I close my eyes, Oh na na na
It’s fine even if it’s in a dream, show yourself to me
I call out to you, Oh na na na
I reach far across time and come back here

I want you
I pray that you will walk up to me again
And that we will have a different ending
I can’t let you go
This is the moment I’ve been imagining every day
I said I want you

I can’t let you go
This is the moment I’ve been waiting endlessly for
I said I want you

Inside this scene tinted in blue
Are only you and I

You’ll know by just looking into my eyes
That I won’t let go of your heart anymore
With the sweetly whispered songs
It’s you

When you wake me up, Oh na na na
My sinking smile faces reality again
If only I can, Oh na na na
Lock myself in this dream again…

I want you
I pray that you will walk up to me again
And that we will have a different ending
I can’t let you go
This is the moment I’ve been imagining every day
I said I want you

I can’t let you go
This is the moment I’ve been waiting endlessly for
I said I want you

It is a night when
he brimming memories overflow, Oh na na na
Cross over the faded boundary and come to me
Cause I

I want you
Even if the feelings that gush forth deeper
Swallow me whole like ocean waves
I can’t let you go
When I close my eyes once more, I’m by your side again
I said I want you

Oh na na na
Oh na na na
I can’t let you go
When I wake up tomorrow, I’ll be in your arms
I I said I want you

SHINee – JUMP [Lyrics English Translation]

JUMP

Why do you keep shaking me up?
Why do you mess up my mind?
As if it’s teasing me,
The fresh spring breeze brushes past me, making me exited

I held it in for quite a long time
I made all the flowers bloom too
Can’t I do it?
Can’t I just let the wind carry me now?

I shake my head, pat my mind back into shape
And settle down in my place again
I keep holding in, I just close my eyes
The moment it feels useless

Higher and higher I Fly
Beneath my feet is the ground
When I crisscross through its gaps
Oh yes I feel liberated
I jump on you Jump on you

Going going drops
It’s cool when it showers down
As if it has become drops of rain
The wind is a Roller coaster
I jump on you jump on you

I’m not falling down
Nor am I withering
I’m just changing
I’m just going forward in a different form

I wonder why it was so difficult
Why I hesitated so much
To break free from the eyes looking at me
And follow my heart

I tear my feet
From the spot it was bound tight
And unfurl the fantasies I’ve been painting of old
The wind blows over, Now I open my eyes
The moment I breathe in

Higher and higher I Fly
Beneath my feet is the ground
When I crisscross through its gaps
Oh yes, I feel liberated
I jump on you, Jump on you

Going going drops
It’s cool when it showers down
As if it has become drops of rain
The wind is a Roller coaster
I jump on you jump on you

The weather is perfect, and it’s a shame to waste it
I feel sorry for me who’s like this
Happiness is always nearby
Most probably it’s between “do or don’t”

You got me got me jump
Got me got me jump jump
You got me got me jump
Got me got me jump jump

Higher and higher I Fly
Beneath my feet is the ground
When I crisscross through its gaps
Oh yes, I feel liberated
I jump on you, Jump on you

Going going drops
It’s cool when it showers down
As if it has become drops of rain
The wind is a Roller coaster
I jump on you jump on you

SHINee – Undercover [Lyrics English Translation]

Undercover

Though my legs are busy paddling underwater
My face looks relaxed
You don’t know

It’s a hustle till the curtain goes up always
But when I stand before you
(I’m) acting cool

The things that are taking place secretly right now,
You can’t know them, it’s not yet time
I’m waiting for the right timing
So that it’ll be too late when you finally catch up

Like a dark shadow
Merges into the night
I burrow into the other end of your consciousness
Inside you, I’m undercover

It’s a scene that doesn’t require any big action
If you felt something, then it’s Kind of love

Because sometimes a tiny whisper
Is stronger than anything else
I want more

The things that are taking place secretly right now,
You can’t know them, it’s not yet time
When the time comes, you have to want it
More than you can stand

Like a dark shadow
Merges into the night
I burrow into the other end of your consciousness
Inside you, I’m undercover

You inside that mirror started looking like me at some point
That harmony is the song of you and me

Though I’m still undercover
You’ll soon come to see it through

The things that are taking place secretly right now,
You can’t know them, it’s not yet time
I’m waiting for the right timing
So that it’ll be too late when you finally catch up

I find my way to you
As if I’m seeping into you
I burrow into your emptiness
In your heart, I’m undercover

Like a dark shadow
Merges into the night
I burrow into the other end of your consciousness
Inside you, I’m undercover
Undercover

Can you see me? A stranger?

SHINee – You and I 안녕 [Lyrics English Translation]

You and I

Lit Trans: Goodbye

The galaxy that glowed in your eyes
The words that spilled over me like flowers
The hands that held mine warmly
And the world where only the two of us lived

I reminisce the handful of memories
Every day with a smile
Though I walk away for the sake of both of us
Believing that time will wear off my feelings,

I am that only one who’s hurt
I may look fine
But it’s not easy for me, my heart isn’t a mere decoration

There’re many stars in my heart
And among them, one shines painfully
I don’t want to catch it
But I don’t want it to vanish either

The sun shone on us brightly
And there was a drop of tear up above the sky
My friends console me
But I don’t think I’m sad

The promised winter sea
The candle that won’t go out
And everything that I can’t throw away
Are making me smile

I am that only one who’s hurt
I may look fine
But my heart that is beating for you isn’t a mere decoration

There’re many stars in my heart
The star that is you shines painfully
I don’t want to catch it
But I don’t want it to vanish either

My heart isn’t a mere decoration
The love of my younger days, goodbye
I will send you off now, goodbye
Though it make my heart ache

You’re the one who’s not hurt
I may look fine
But it’s not easy for me, my heart isn’t a mere decoration

There’re many stars in my heart
And among them, one shines painfully
I don’t want to catch it
But I don’t want it to vanish either

I know you meant it
When you said you wished me all the best
I will let you go in peace
Don’t think that you’re trampling me on your way

Though I tried to entrust it to this wind blowing towards me
And to the rain that falls refreshingly
My heart is not a mere decoration

SHINee – All Day All Night [Lyrics English Translation]

All Day All Night

Can someone tell me
That I made the right choice
Or the wrong one
Every moment I met you was a highlight
I don’t regret them
They’re only beautiful

I start to see the word in a different light
Yeah it’s all for you
Time starts to sparkle
Yeah it’s all for you
Our tears that hurt so much
And our joy that overwhelmed us
All for you All for you
All for you All for you
All for you

Let’s get hot as if we’re about to explode
So that we have no choice but to love more

All day all day all night
What I want and wish for

All day all day all night
We melt each other

Like a long long preview
I look at the scene of the present with deep empathy
I can’t help but look at your face again blankly
Knock the stars against each other, Let’s spark it
There’s nothing hard to understand
Feel the vibe
I will toss an even more hot firework
Baby it’s all for you

Tell me what else do you want
There’s nothing forbidden
It’s okay to try and go crazy
Because you chose me
The deep blue quietude of the night
And the dazzling sunshine of the day
All for you All for you
All for you All for you
All for you

Let’s get hot as if we’re about to explode
So that we have no choice but to love more
Baby you’re my type of world
Shout out loud

Leave it as it is and embrace even my painful scars
All of that is you and me
Even a small flutter of wings has control
You changed my world

Let’s get hot as if we’re about to explode
So that we have no choice but to love more
Baby you’re my type of world
Shout out loud
Baby you’re my world
You’ll come to believe the new world that will come to life

All day all day all night
What I want and wish for
All day all day all night
baby is only you
Oh my god my body shudders
All day all day all night
We melt each other

SHINee – Good Evening 데리러 가 [Lyrics English Translation]

The soft darkness is slowly closing in
From that distance
The edge of the sunset is hanging from the building
And I think of you

I want to open up the night
Before darkness does
And meet you
Right this moment Oh

Before moonlight spills over and it gets too late
I’m coming to pick you up
Thinking of how surprised you’ll be
I’m coming to pick you up now
I don’t want any other reason
I’m coming to pick you up

I’m coming to pick you up ahead of the night

In case you’ll be thinking of me me me
Dreamily
I’m coming to pick you up now
I don’t want to endure the lonely night night night
All by myself
So I’m coming to pick you up now

The breath that is coming shorter and shorter
Shrinks the distance between you and me
That one “I miss you” from you
Makes my heart impatient
And I speed up a little more

Like raindrops on a windowpane
They hang there bright and clear
The heart-racing stories and everything Oh

With each step I take
Everything in the world transforms into you
I want to find out all your moments
Before that moonlight does

I can feel we’re looking at
each other through this door
Let’s see
You’re eyes nose lips cheek

Even if I had to wander far away
Up above the sky
I will fling my heart to the clouds
And light this night together with the brilliant moon*

Before moonlight spills over and it gets too late
I’m coming to pick you up
Thinking of how surprised you’ll be
I’m coming to pick you up now
I don’t want any other reason
I’m coming to pick you up

I’m coming to pick you up ahead of this night

In case you’ll be thinking of me me me
Dreamily
I’m coming to pick you up now
I don’t want to endure the lonely night night night
All by myself
So I’m coming to pick you up now

I can see you Oh
Up ahead
I’m coming to pick you up
Ahead of the night

 

*A salute to JongHyun ❤ ❤ Often compared to the moon
