Christmas I love you
You're the one

Oh I been waitin' for this Christmas Day
벌써 내 마음은 이 하얀 거리 위로
어젯밤 꿈엔 눈이 내렸어
이불 속에서 온종일 기다린 너


Oh I been waitin' for this Christmas Day
My heart is already on this white street
Last night it snowed in my dream
Waited for you the whole day under the blanket


Christmas I love you
흰 눈처럼
소복소복*
넌 내 하루에 내려와


Christmas I love you
Like the white snow
Fluttering down*
You come down into my day


Christmas I love you
Oh you're the one
영원토록 오늘이었으면 해


Christmas I love you
Oh you're the one
I wish it stays today forever


Christmas love
Christmas love

오래도록
넌 내 마음에 남아줘


For a long time
Please stay in my heart


Christmas love
Christmas love


기다렸던
Today it's Christmas Day


The one I've been waiting for
Today it's Christmas Day


힘껏 달려보기도 해 저기 어린아이처럼
저 구름 위로 하늘을 나는 기분이야
누군가 나의 얘길 듣는다면
지금 이대로 시간을 멈춰주겠니


Try running there with all your strength like a child
I feel like I'm flying in the sky above that cloud
If someone is listening to what I'm saying
Can you stop the time the way it is now


Christmas I love you
흰 눈처럼
소복소복*
넌 내 하루에 내려와


Christmas I love you
Like the white snow
Fluttering down*
You come down into my day


Christmas I love you
Oh you're the one
영원토록
오늘이었으면 해


Christmas I love you
Oh you're the one
I wish it stays today forever


사실은 나 너 떠나갈까 두려워
오늘은 짧으니까
조금만 더 널 기다린 나를 위해
더 머물러줄래


Honestly, I'm afraid you will leave me
Since today is short
For me who waited for you
Would you please stay a little longer?


Christmas I love you
흰 눈처럼
소복소복*
넌 내 하루에 내려와

 

Christmas I love you

Like the white snow

Fluttering down*

You come down into my day

Christmas I love you
Oh you're the one
영원토록
오늘이었으면 해

 

Christmas I love you

Oh you're the one

I wish it stays today forever

Christmas love
Christmas love


오래도록
넌 내 마음에 남아줘

 

For a long time

Please stay in my heart

Christmas love
Christmas love


기다렸던
Today it's Christmas Day

The one I've been waiting for

Today it's Christmas Day

NOTE:

1. *소복소복 (pronounced sobok-sobok) is an onomatopoeia for snow gently falling on the ground and piling up. There is no English equivalent for this word.

Here is the translation of the note written by Park Jimin:

ARMY, you all. Hello, this is Jimin.

Did you receive the Christmas gift well?
I really wanted to give you all a listen to it, I'm really really glad I was, fortunately, able to make you all listen to it.

The reason that today I came here and suddenly I gave you such a bright song to listen to in this difficult situation (around the world), I came here to let you know about that reason. If you look at the lyrics of the song, you'll get it but
This song is containing my emotions of the childhood memory I remember of when I first saw the snow I like, fall heavily.

As we grow up, it seems we come to longing a lot for our childhood experiences.
With or without the current situation, I really want to reminisce and go back to the time and memory of when we were childish, pure, and spotless.

I wondered as we grow up, the responsibilities of things we attain, if those responsibilities don't make us who were pure and genuine age/grow up and make us hide our emotions a little.
But I think we still have emotions like that in us.

So, though it may be childish, how would it be if expressed those emotions once?
I hope that day (of my expressing our emotions) becomes today.

All of you always deserve to be loved.

So rather than calling it cringy even if it makes you feel a little shy, I hope the situation where everyone can enjoy together can come.

Though it's a song really short of how it's written with grandiose, I worked hard on making it with the wish of "I hope all of you are happy".

I hope you can go back to your old reminiscing memories even for a moment upon listening to the song.
