his is song is another rhythmic creation from the ingenious Korean rap trio “Epik High” – however paradoxical with its heart-breaking lyrics. The end result is a mixed- emotional song that embodies the ambiguity of the ever-fickle human emotions.

(lol I sound deep) Anyways I’ve linked the offical music video video and the fan-made english subbed videos below, enjoy! – credits to TheAsianMission!

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
and the tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

Sounds of the clock in an barren room
The noise of the rain on the roof and my lips
Inside the pocket of the coat I rarely wear
is the ring along with the overwhelming memory
I haven’t seen the city in a few days
The gathered rain are like little mirrors
I struggle within them because of the pain
Because without you I’m a chair with a short leg
The umbrella was too small for the both of us
but the umbrella shielded us from the cold world
Now it seems much to big and awkward.
Your left shoulder always got so wet
I hang my head with the weight of the memories
My shoelaces are untied, undone
and all thats next to me is the rain and wind
(not there)  is a person that will hold my umbrella for a while
and I cry

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
and the tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

chorus
You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
alone in the rain

The ground has gathered the tears of the sky
I can see the moon behind the clouds that block the stars
The sound of lonely shoes echo down the alley
I turn around-
Its just heart wrenching night
A shadow that looks just like me
The two of us that couldn’t see “us”
Are we now two people?
The answer is so lonely
The picture in my mind and my response is vague
The umbrella was too big in my eyes
The umbrella I will close facing the world that made me cry
The umbrella that I opened with the promise of forever
Under the ripped umbrella are the two hearts
I guess even though I turn around you wont be there
I put my two hands deep inside my pockets
Even though I walk as if carefree
My two cheeks will become wet so easily

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
and the tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

*chorus

I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head
I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head

Because you are not next to me
I waited outside with an umbrella
outside your house
I cry

*chorus

You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
forever in the rain
