«Fatal» answer to «Empty» (JYJ and ALLA)

jyjThe song «Empty» sung by JYJ caught my attention because of two reasons. Fist one is that the song is full English. And the second one… well, one good reason is enough, is not it?  The song is rather old. So let’s give it a second life.

Original «Empty» lyrics are on the left. The answering lyrics are on the right. I put it like that to make sure the answer corresponds to music as well. So if any girl is brave enough to sing that, make a try :)

«Let ‘em go» is «Let them go» because in nowadays English it is possible to use «they» meaning both «he» and «she». Or you may sing «Let ‘im go» (that is «Let him go») instead though it’ll ruin the whole philosophy of the verse. The girl is not talking about herself. She is always thinking and talking of him as well. I really don’t know how she would live without him after all. So I added that «After we’ve met» part that ends without music, fading like the last cry of hope.

«Empty» (JYJ) — «Fatal» (ALLA)

 

Girl I swear
I’m never going through this again
I know that you thought you’d win
And before I give you another try
I’d die
Love won’t make you
cry or ask why
Oh why
So I’ll deny my heart cause
I won’t live a lie
Why try
Your heart is empty
And you’re so cold
You don’t care about you and I
Your heart is empty
You won’t let go
But I’m walkin out this life
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
There you go
Tryna tell me how to be a man
When that’s something you just
don’t understand
It’s time to bring your
truth to light
No lie
Love won’t make you cry
or ask why
Oh why
So I’ll deny my heart cause
I won’t live a lie
Why try
Your heart is empty
And you’re so cold
You don’t care about you and I
Your heart is empty
You won’t let go
But I’m walking out this life
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
Your heart is gone
My heart is strong
Leave me alone
leave me alone
Your heart is gone
My heart is strong
Leave me alone
leave me alone
Your heart is empty
Your heart is empty
Your heart is empty
Girl because your heart is empty
Your heart is empty
And you’re so cold
You don’t care about you and I
Your heart is empty
You won’t let go
But I’m walking out this life
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
Why can’t you let it go
Let it go let it go let it go
Girl because your heart is empty
Should I swear?
I’ll never get you through that again.
How come I am your source of pain
Cos I’m not intending for any lie
No try
Love’s a challenge for your
heart and mine.
So why?
Will you deny you had those
dreams of you and I
Flying high?
When heart is empty
And you’re roaming
through the crowds of the same kind
It is a must of
finding someone
who is dearest in mankind.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
There we go
For a moment I was numb in despair
But I saw you needed
time to compare
I could only
think of stepping aside
To hide
Love’s a challenge for your heart and mine.
So why?
Will you deny you had those dreams of you and I
Flying high?
When heart is empty
And you’re roaming
through the crowds of the same kind
It is a must of
finding someone
who is dearest in mankind.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
Is your heart gone?
Is my heart wrong
Waiting so long?
Waiting so long…
The saddest part
Is Deep in my heart
I hear your cry
Still hear your cry:“
Your heart is empty
Your heart is empty
Your heart is empty”
Can my heart be ever empty?
When heart is empty
And you’re roaming
through the crowds of the same kind
It is a must of
finding someone
who is dearest in mankind.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
And never let ‘em go,
Let ‘em go, let ‘em go
Just because you seem not hearty.
After we’ve met
How can I forget
Your tears and smile
In my self-exile?
Let me back home
(‘n’) To stop my roam
Call me your own
Call me your own…
