Saranghaeyo (I Love You)

The key and the locket
Heavy in your pocket
Every scratch and flaw
You never notice at all

The tea and the leaf
So subtle and brief
You drink and you play
On both sad and mellow days

The flame and the fire
Rise higher and higher
It shadows your eyes
And erases my cries

The necklace you wear
Always shines in that glare
But your eyes and soft smile;
They blind me for miles

The head on your shoulders
Awes all your beholders
Foolish and clumsy they say
But, say what they may
You brighten my day

My heart in your hands
Is fragile like sand
But you hold it close
So your smiles I chose.
