One day, i'll know love, i'll know laughter, echoing rains. One day, paradise will open, love is like an apple, one bite of this love, bitterly sweet, It's unfulfilled . Like famous last words, the dream of love is fading… © 2023 by #3XiDe Corp #US #AmericanVietnamese #lyrics ImageImageImage

One day, I'll know love, how to meet love, I'll know love's pain. One day, I must wait, I'll know sweetness, sadness of the rain 🌧. . .

Revisiting “Puzzle,” SF9 (2023). The plot (concerning the pronunciation of “scenario” in SF9’s “Puzzle”) thickens: I just discovered the SF9 song “Scenario” and learned that they pronounce it just fine there.


#KpopEnglishProject #SF9 #Puzzle #Scenario #kpop #kpep #lyrics

By my count, they pronounce it right 11 out of 13 times in the song. (A respectable score of 85%.) They pronounce it like “see-NARE-ee-oh,” which is close enough to the American English “suh-NARE-ee-oh.” So, what does this tell us?

Does this mean that the weird pronunciation in “Puzzle” (“see-nuh-ree-OH”) was intentional? If there was no problem pronouncing it correctly in “Scenario,” was the pronunciation in “Puzzle” a choice? No, I don’t think so. I think all it really tells us is that…

“flipp!ng a coin,” Billlie (2021). First off, I think Billlie’s great. They can tackle any concept, they’re talented and charming, and they never shy away from the unconventional. But this song…


#KpopEnglishProject #Billlie #flipping_a_coin #Belllieve #kpop #kpep #lyrics

This song gives us some stuff that’s a bit hard to process. Part of this might be that Billlie often leans into their lore, and that can put uninformed listeners at a disadvantage. At least, that’s what I assume is going on with this line:

“매일 난 [Every day, I] make a blue dia”

I mean, what is a “blue dia” (pronounced die-uh)? Should we know? Can we know? Does it matter? When I hear English, I immediately—reflexively—try to parse it. This is how it works for everyone.

“Nxde,” (G)I-DLE (2022). This song is frustrating. That’s because the English lyrics throughout are just so unsatisfying. In the very first line, Soyeon sings this:

“Why you think that ’bout nude?”


#KpopEnglishProject #GIDLE #Nxde #Neverland #kpop #kpep #lyrics

Why do you think that about nude? That is not a well-formed English sentence. And I’m not talking about the nonstandard grammar (“Why you think?”). I’m talking about the rest of it. Yes, “nude” can be a noun (we’ll get to that), but not like this, it can’t.

“Why do you think that about… me?” A question like that works. “Why do you think that about… sex?” That works. But “nude”—even if we interpret it as a noun—doesn’t work without a determiner, like “a” or “that” or “her.” Count nouns can’t occur all alone.

“Trigger” (2022), CRAXY. There’s something funny going on in CRAXY’s latest single. And by “funny,” I mean not so good. You know by now that this not-so-good English is going to crop up in the chorus. Let’s take a look:


#KpopEnglishProject #CRAXY #Trigger #kpop #lyrics

“Pull the trigger like you loaded”

What’s wrong with that? Maybe it’s just me, but when I hear “loaded” in that line, I think of two things:

Pull the trigger like you’re drunk

and then

Pull the trigger like you’re rich.

Clearly, neither one is the intended meaning.

Then again, the intended meaning is a bit of a stretch. Because what they mean is something like “Pull the trigger as though you, yourself, are a weapon” or “Pull the trigger as though you are powerful.” As it is, the line makes me laugh.

How to fix it? I have some ideas.

“Close” (2021), AB6IX. One recurring English phrase in this stylish and propulsive song threatens to gum everything up. Well, no, it’s not that big a problem. But it is a really bad line.

It shows up in the chorus:


#KpopEnglishProject #AB6IX #Close #ABNEW #kpop #lyrics

“And close your eyes
눈을 감아 그냥 내게 맡겨 널 [Close your eyes, just leave it to me]
Like a blind
불빛 하나 없는 [No light at all]”

And it shows up here (and in a similar context):

“Close your eyes
그냥 날 믿고 [Just trust me] like a blind”

“Like a blind” doesn’t work at all. “A blind” doesn’t mean “a blind person.” And even if it did, would the line work? Don’t know. But I do know that, as written, it’s a no-go. It’s the kind of not-quite-there English lyric that English-speaking K-pop fans learn to ignore.

“Today’s liquidity conditions are like the waters receding before a giant wave.”
“The coronavirus outbreak and the shock that preventative measures introduced to manufacturing and services activity will lead to missed payments globally. …
… Missed payments will force more and more firms to become deficit agents; as this cascades, banks and regional banking systems will become deficit agents”

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Breathe it, receive it.
and never leave it

Feel the breath of light
in love’s embrace.
Open up your soul
and Breathe the Grace.

#spirituality #grace #BreatheTheGrace #lyrics
Enchanting light
illumined life
there is a power beyond words
connecting all within our world

You see the signs
of love divine
the seeds of hope where there was none
secrets unlocked, the past undone

#spirituality #grace #BreatheTheGrace #lyrics
When you open up your soul
and breathe the light
You find the power
to illumine darkest night

Breakup songs for the .@SenateGOP trying to quit #Trump:
You know what you need to do, let us help you find the words. Breaking up is hard to do, as the old song goes. Here are some great #American #lyrics:
The party’s over / It's time to call it a day
Now you must wake up / All dreams must end
Take off your makeup, the party's over
It's all over, my friend
(Comden, Green, Styne)
I never like to admit that I was wrong
'Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself

I Know You
better than you think I do

The pleasant parasite
smiling as you suck the life
from anyone who trusts
enough to let you come inside

#trump #Individual1 #IndividualOne #treason #GOP #lyrics #IKnowYou
You take
more than you will ever give

To you it's just a game
see how far this hand will play
you'll only give enough
to make it through another day.

#trump #Individual1 #IndividualOne #treason #GOP #lyrics #IKnowYou
I Know You
think that you will never lose

Don't be so sure, my friend
parasites don't always win
you'll be left, sad and broken
when you've reached the tether's end
