Mood Illustration: Lee Hi – Breathe

Lagu Lee Hi – Breathe dirilis pada bulan Maret 2016. Ini adalah salah satu lagu dalam album keduanya ‘Seoulite’. Album setelah 3 tahun hiatus sejak debut albumnya di tahun 2013.

Lagu ini, ditulis oleh Jonghyun SHINee. Ini request dari Tablo bagi Jonghyun menulis lagu utk comeback-nya Lee Hi.

Lagu ini mendapat first win di M! Countdown pd tgl 17 Maret. Di desember 2017, following the death of Jonghyun, “Breathe” kembali masuk Digital Charts di Korea.

Lagu ini sangat enak didengar. Lee Hi pernah menangis saat menyanyikannya di awal tahun 2018 di Special Stage for SHINee Jonghyun in the 32nd Golden Disc Awards.

Sejak Tahun 2016, aku sangat suka mendengarkan lagu ini. Lagu ini bagiku seperti menyemangati diriku sendiri kalau aku telah melakukan yang terbaik.

Sudah hampir seminggu, ku sesak napas tiap malam. Padahal udah “hiatus” dari oxycan dkk-nya. Tapi harus pakai lagi beberapa hari ini. Jadi keingat lagi sama lagu ini. Apalagi beberapa hari ini melihat banyak sekali konten terbaru dari SHINee, salah satu boyband k-pop favoriteku. Minho SHINee baru saja menyelesaikan tugas wajib militernya dan beberapa kali SHINee melakukan live di V Live maupun Instagram. Melihat SHINee berkumpul lagi, aku jadi teringat dengan Jonghyun dan juga lagu ciptaannya ini.

I know myself better. “That heavy breath”, “the breath that I can’t understand”, “deep sigh, just let it out like that”. It might not because my health, but my mind. I don’t know what am I thinking so hard until I cannot sleep every night. But, that’s okay. It’s okay.

In the end, I wanna say “you really did a good job”. Even if you get bad result.

This song is really lovely ❤❤❤❤❤

Berikut cuplikan lirik lagu Lee Hi – Breathe (English Translation)

Take a deep breath
Until both sides of your heart get numb
Until it hurts a little
Let out your breath even more
Until you feel
like there’s nothing left inside

It’s alright if you run out of breath
No one will blame you
It’s okay to make mistakes sometimes
Because anyone can do so
Although comforting by saying it’s alright
Are just words

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you

It’s alright if you run out of breath
No one will blame you
It’s okay to make mistakes sometimes
Because anyone can do so
Although comforting by saying it’s alright
Are just words

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you

Even if others think your sigh
Takes out energy and strength
I already know
That you had a day that’s hard enough
To let out even a small sigh
Now don’t think of anything else
Let out a deep sigh
Just let it out like that

Someone’s breath. That heavy breath
How can I see through that?
Though I can’t understand your breath
It’s alright I’ll hold you
You really did a good job
