Translated English Lyrics to ‘Run with Me’ by Sunwoojunga

‘Run with me (도망가자)’ is a song from Sunwoojunga’s third official album ‘Serenade’ (2019) that can draw tears with its simple but heartfelt lyrics.

There’s something quite universal about suffering. We feel physical or mental pain, go through hardships in life, and, at the very least, we all get tired. This song is a strong but understanding voice – whether it’s another person’s or your own – that sees your suffering and invites you to step away for a while.

You need to rest. Let’s go somewhere – anywhere. And you won’t be alone.

Accompanied by Sunwoojunga’s expressive singing, the song is a consolation to anyone who is suffering and feels like they’re suffering alone.

Korean and English Lyrics to ‘Run with me’ by Sunwoojunga

Sunwoojunga performing ‘Run with me’ live on 2021 show ‘Sea of Hope’

도망가자
어디든 가야 할 것만 같아
넌 금방이라도 울 것 같아
괜찮아

Let’s run away
I think we just need to go some place
You look like you could cry any moment now
It’s okay

우리 가자
걱정은 잠시 내려놓고
대신 가볍게 짐을 챙기자
실컷 웃고 다시 돌아오자
거기서는 우리 아무 생각말자

Let’s go
Put down the worries for a while
And instead let’s pack light
Let’s laugh as much as we can and come back
Let’s not think about anything while we’re there

너랑 있을게 이렇게
손 내밀면 내가 잡을게
있을까 두려울 게
어디를 간다 해도
우린 서로를 꼭 붙잡고 있으니

I’ll be with you just like this
If you reach out, I’ll be there to hold your hand
Would there be anything to be afraid of
No matter where we go
We’ll be holding each other ever so tight

너라서 나는 충분해
나를 봐 눈 맞춰줄래
너의 얼굴 위에 빛이 스며들 때까지
가보자 지금 나랑

Because it’s you, I have more than enough
Look at me, would you look into my eyes
Until there’s light across your face
Let’s go there together now

도망가자
멀리 안 가도 괜찮을 거야
너와 함께라면 난 다 좋아
너의 맘이 편할 수 있는 곳
그게 어디든지 얘기 해줘

Let’s run away
We won’t have to go far
If it’s with you, I’m happy with anything
A place where you can rest easy
Wherever it is, you can tell me

너랑 있을게 이렇게
손 내밀면 내가 잡을게
있을까 두려울 게
어디를 간다 해도
우린 서로를 꼭 붙잡고 있으니

I’ll be with you just like this
If you reach out, I’ll be there to hold your hand
Would there be anything to be afraid of
No matter where we go
We’ll be holding each other ever so tight

가보는 거야 달려도 볼까
어디로든 어떻게든
내가 옆에 있을게 마음껏 울어도 돼
그 다음에

We’ll go there, shall we run too
No matter where or how
I’ll be by your side, you can cry as much as you need
And after that

돌아오자 씩씩하게
지쳐도 돼 내가 안아줄게
괜찮아 좀 느려도 천천히 걸어도
나만은 너랑 갈 거야 어디든

Let’s be brave and come back
It’s fine to be tired, I’ll hold you
It’s fine to be a little slow, to walk one step at a time
I’ll be the one there with you no matter where

당연해 가자 손잡고
사랑해 눈 맞춰줄래
너의 얼굴 위에 빛이 스며들 때까지
가보자 지금 나랑

Of course, let’s hold hands and go
I love you, would you look into my eyes
Until there’s light across your face
Let’s go there together now

도망가자

Let’s run away
