Big Bang's "Last Farewell"

Big Bang is back, most definitely!

Big Bang is a K-pop group my students talk about all the time. The girls still get excited every time they ask me if I know them and I answer, "Big Bang? Of course I know them. I love them!" I do get stuck, though, when I'm asked to name my favourite member. (I can only name two, G-dragon and TOP, because a few students have adopted these as their English names.) I can't recognize them in pictures, either, much to the disappointment of my students who show me pictures and introduce them as their "boyfriends." This song, "Last Farewell," came out months ago (I first heard it last winter!), but I still love it. It's my favourite K-pop song so far!

English lyrics:

"Last Farewell" Big Bang

Yes! Big Bang is back! Most definitely, incredible! Hey move! B to the I to the G (Bang, bang) about love

Chorus I don’t wanna be without you girl, I wish that the last farewell is not near Just today for the entire day, I don’t wanna be without you girl My clumsy heart, please hug it and go I love you, I need you girl

[SR] Baby baby baby although it’s a little awkward, we [DS] baby baby baby are still loving each other [TY] baby baby baby and even though it’s frightening, Even though the end can be seen, for me [there’s] only you girl

[Taeyang] You, who filled me with only pain and treated me cruelly I, who stroked you soothingly, but then changing again, avoided you Worry from wondering how we went wrong Wandering inside a problem that has no answer [G-Dragon] Even if I am a wanderer lost on a path enclosed inside a maze, I can’t do this at all Only being able to wait, asking you to come to me in muffled steps girl Like when we first met, like when this was still new Like this, like this, like this, like that, like that, like that never leave my side

Chorus I don’t wanna be without you girl, I wish that the last farewell is not near Just today for the entire day, I don’t wanna be without you girl My clumsy heart, please hug it and go I love you, I need you girl

[SR] Baby baby baby although it’s a little awkward, we [DS] baby baby baby are still loving each other [TY] baby baby baby and even though it’s frightening, Even though the end can be seen, for me [there’s] only you girl

[TOP] (Seungri) You didn’t contact me after leaving without a single word (Without a single word) But one day you suddenly appeared (Asking how I was doing) Are you playing around with me or is this really love Even in a single day, I get confused twelve more times (About love)

[TOP] (Daesung) I asked you in return why you would want a toy that you were going to play with only once or twice The sweet taste for a very short moment, the cotton candy that we melted too easily (Because it seems like I also won’t be able to block the weary heart anymore) Grab me quickly (Before you leave)

Chorus I don’t wanna be without you girl, I wish that the last farewell is not near Just today for the entire day, I don’t wanna be without you girl My clumsy heart, please hug it and go I love you, I need you girl

[SR] Baby baby baby although it’s a little awkward, we [DS] baby baby baby are still loving each other [TY] baby baby baby and even though it’s frightening, Even though the end can be seen, for me [there’s] only you girl

[DS] Although I still love you, although you’re so important to me ye [SR] That nobody can take my place, I know (You know) [TY] Oh please just hug me quietly

Chorus I don’t wanna be without you girl, I wish that the last farewell is not near Just today for the entire day, I don’t wanna be without you girl My clumsy heart, please hug it and go I love you, I need you girl

[SR] Baby baby baby although it’s a little awkward, we (Although it’s a little awkward) [DS] baby baby baby are still loving each other (But I love you) [TY] baby baby baby and even though it’s frightening, Even though the end can be seen, for me [there’s] only you girl
