Kang Seung Sik (강승식)
"Look for the Silver Lining (그대로의 나)"



English Translation:

I’m a bit different from others
I’m soft-hearted, even small hopes can shake me up
But I’m dreaming so much that I can fill up the world and then some

Why did it have to be me in this story?
When I swallowed those scars that I didn’t want to look at
The emptiness slowly seeped in
But that just meant I was growing more

I thought I wanted to be normally happy
Just a normal amount
I had the answer in my heart

But a clear light came to me right when I was about to break down
Telling me that I can protect myself
That it’s me, who has a dream that shines so much that it dazzles
Just as I am

Suddenly, I got scared again so I hid
I told myself to do a better job today but
Like a habit, I kept feeling unhappy
And then I got up again

I thought I wanted to be normally happy
Just a normal amount
I had the answer in my heart

Before bed, I prayed more earnestly than anyone else
For strength to protect myself

I just grew up a little earlier than usual
At my own pace
I can clash and fall as much as I want
Once the storm passes, in the far away future
I think I can calmly say
That I was on the path to find the most beautiful times
