The song “I Will” (성원) is Zhang Liyin’s second Korean single. It was introduced to audiences as the Korean version of “I Will” (星愿). The Korean version was part of the tracklist in Liyin’s Korean edition of her I Will album, but the Korean version was never promoted or performed. You can find the lyrics to the Chinese version here on our website.

The song is also a cover of S.E.S’s “I Will”, released when they were under SM Entertainment.

Many thanks to Jessica for translating some of these lyrics for us.


English

Today too, how many hours are left
With thoughts of you I wasted the day
My wish is like a unattainable dream
As I wearily long for you in the dawn, I sleep

Many times in a day was I was truly curious
Did you know of my wanting to see you?

Unable to breathe in your arms
On your broad chest would I be able to realise my dreams?
With a small voice I’ll say “I love you”
Baby you’ll last forever my love

With a short pencil, I write it completely
Will it be able to fill our lacking hearts?
Of course but it won’t turn out well
My love is still small

I’ve waited all day even by chance at least once
You’ll dial the number wrong

Unable to breathe in your arms
On your broad chest would I be able to realise my dreams?
With a small voice I’ll say “I love you”
Baby you’ll last forever my love

If you’re not by my side
I tire from crying and I say it hurts
The love you gave to me, how important it is
I now know I will treasure it forever

Unable to breathe in your arms
On your broad chest would I be able to realise my dreams?
With a small voice I’ll say “I love you”
Baby you’ll last forever my love


Korean

오늘 하루도 몇시간 남지 않았죠
난 그대 생각으로 온 하루를 버렸죠
나의 바램은 이루지 못한 꿈처럼
새벽을 그리다가 지쳐 잠이 들겠죠

난 정말 궁금했어요 하루에도 몇 번씩
내가 보고 싶어 하는 마음 알고 있나요

그대 안에서 나는 숨을 쉴 수조차 없어요
당신의 넓은 가슴 안에 잠든 꿈이 깰까 봐
작은 소리로 말할 거에요 그댈 사랑해
Baby you’ll last forever my love

키작은 연필로 가득히 써내려갔죠
모자라는 마음들이 채워질 수 있도록
그래요 하지만 그게 잘 안 되나봐요
아직 나의 사랑도 키가 작은 건가요

온종일 기다렸어요 혹시라도 한번쯤
잘못 누른 번호이라도 걸려와 주길

그대 안에서 나는 숨을 쉴 수조차 없어요
당신의 넓은 가슴 안에 잠든 꿈이 깰까 봐
작은 소리로 말할 거에요 그댈 사랑해
Baby you’ll last forever my love

만약 그대가 내 곁에 없다면
나는 울다 지쳐 쓰러지고 말했죠
그대가 준 사랑이 내겐 얼마나 소중한지
이젠 알 것 같아요 영원하게 할게요

그대 안에서 나는 숨을 쉴 수조차 없어요
당신의 넓은 가슴 안에 잠든 꿈이 깰까 봐
작은 소리로 말할 거에요 그댈 사랑해
Baby you’ll last forever my love
