그대 아픈 기억들 모두 그대여
그대 가슴 깊이 묻어버리고

그런 의미가 있죠
떠난 이에게 노래하세요
후회 없이 사랑했노라 말해요

그대 탓으로 훌훌 털어버리고

그런 의미가 있죠
우리 다함께 노래합시다
후회 없이 꿈을 꾸었다 말해요

Have No Worries My Dear


Have no worries please, my dear
Let us sing our hearts together
Take all your pained memories, dear
Bury them away deep in your heart

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
Sing it to the one who has left you
That you loved them giving all of you

I know you have gone through a lot
I know you have fallen into a rut
Take all the bitterness out of you
Chalk it up as your fault and move on

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
Let us all sing our hearts together
Say you dreamed holding back none

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
Let us all sing our hearts together
Say you dreamed holding back none

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
all sing our hearts together
Say you dreamed holding back none
Let us all sing our hearts together
Say you'll have a brand new dream

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
Let us all sing our hearts together
Say you dreamed holding back none

What's past isn't just past and gone
But means something to us
Let us all sing our hearts together
Say you'll have a brand new dream


돌고 돌고 돌고


해가 뜨고 해가 지면
달이 뜨고 다시 해가 뜨고
꽃이 피고 새가 날고
움직이고 바빠지고
걷는 사람 뛰는 사람
서로 다르게 같은 시간 속에
다시 돌고 돌고 돌고 돌고
다시 돌고 돌고 돌고 돌고

운명처럼 만났다가
헤어지고 소문 되고
아쉬워지고 헤매이다
다시 시작하고 다시 계획하고
우는 사람 웃는 사람
서로 다르게 같은 시간 속에
다시 돌고 돌고 돌고 돌고
다시 돌고 돌고 돌고 돌고

어두운 곳 밝은 곳도
앞서다가 뒤서다가
다시 돌고 돌고 돌고 돌고
다시 돌고 ...

Round and Round and Round


The sun rises, then it sets
The moon rises, then the sun again
Flowers bloom, birds fly
Everyone moves around, gets busy
People walk, people run
All different, in the same time
Round and round and round again
Round and round and round again

We meet as if by fate
We part, make the rumor rounds
Regret, and then get lost
We start over, make plans again
People cry, and people laugh
All different, in the same time
Round and round and round again
Round and round and round again

Dark corners, bright spots
Leading ahead, falling behind
Round and round and round again
Round and round ...


Jeon In Gwon 1

Jeon In Gwon (전인권, 1954-) may be called half of Chamomile (들국화) as he founded the band, sang the lead vocal, and wrote many of the songs as well. He also has been working on his own projects as a solo artist and with his own side band outside of the Chamomile activities. Altogether he created five or so such albums comprising original works and many covers of other artists. Of these Have No Worries My Dear and Round and Round and Round are probably at the peak of his creativity as well as most popular with the fans. They are in the line of songs about life’s journey, existential songs if you will. After love concerns which is by far the most often dealt with subject, these existential songs probably make up the next biggest chunk of pop music, which is only natural since everyone will hit the wall sometimes on life’s roads and need a consolation.

Have No Worries is a song exactly about what the title says. It tries to give a soothing musical hug to those who have been suffering.
Jeon In Gwon 2 It repeats what’s past is not just past and gone but means something, and what matters is that you have dreamed holding back none. Yes, all of us have challenges big and small, and they will all have a meaning when you look back on them after they have become a part in the string of chapters in your memory. So just try your best and leave what’s beyond your efforts to time, it seems to say.

Round and Round and Round is a look on the endless cycles of life. If you look with detachment at the forest instead of the trees around you that you deal with everyday, the world might look like an interesting place. Everyone in it busily goes about their business which recurs forever seemingly for no ultimate reason other than that it is the only way it should be. The world goes round and round and round, events coming and going perpetually, some people and creatures being born, while others die off.
