——-It was revealed that 2PM’s first comeback stage would be this week on KBS’s Music Bank!!!! There’s so much good news today!!! I can’t wait!!! Also, remember to support 2PM by buying their album, not sharing music or downloading it from illegal sources, on Yesasia if you’re not in a place where it’s sold at stores!!!——-

This is dedicated to my sister, eunii, who likes this song quite a bit.

2PM’s first full album “1:59PM is out!! I decided to do the romanization for their song “Gimme the Light” so PLEASE give me (wannabefob) credit. I’m accepting recommendations too!! If you really like a song that you’d like me to write the romanization for, please leave a comment. I’m also considering writing the romanization for all of the songs on this album (except ones like “Again and Again” or “Only You” — they probably already have romanization).

Translation:

Hey girl, I can’t live without you.
I can’t forget you. Gimme the light.

Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return her to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
After leaving you, I’m regretting it. I’m such a fool. Why now…

It hurts so much.. I can’t see you
I’m going crazy.. why did you leave me
I can’t even breathe, I can’t even see
Why did you make me like this and leave

I hate myself for not believing you
I hate myself for not protecting you
I can’t endure even one day without you
not being able to see you, I”m dying

Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return her to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
After leaving you, I’m regretting it. I’m such a fool. Why now…

Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return that girl to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
What can i do to find you? Please tell me, what I should do

I thought everything would be okay
I thought i wouldn’t feel anything,
but after I’ve lost you, I’m lost in darkness
once again, I look for you today.. I look for you who left

I hate myself for not believing you
I hate myself for not protecting you
I can’t endure even one minute, one second
not being able to see you,  I’m dying

Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return her to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
After leaving you, I’m regretting it. I’m such a fool. Why now…
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return that girl to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
What can i do to find you? Please tell me, what I should do

You who left.. you’re following me around and I’m going crazy
It’s strangling me, it makes my blood boil
Our crossed destinies…
I stare at the phone all day, waiting for you.
My heart aches.. even though I tell myself that it’s over,
lingering attachment grabs a hold of me
I hate myself for not protecting you
I plead the heavens to return you to me

Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return her to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
After leaving you, I’m regretting it. I’m such a fool. Why now…
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Return that girl to me.
Gimme the light (gimme the light). Turn back time.
What can i do to find you? Please tell me, what I should do

This time, I found the lyrics on Daum Music which seems faster and better than Cyworld. I’ll probably be using Daum’s lyrics now for the most part.

Hey girl, I can’t Live without U. I can’t forget U. Gimme the Light.
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되돌려줘
너 떠나고 후회하고 있어 참 바보 같지 난 왜 이제서야
너무나 아픈데 널 볼 수 없어 미칠 것 같은데 왜 날 떠났어
날 숨을 쉴 수도 없고 앞을 볼 수도 없게 만들고 떠나가버리니 왜
널 믿지 못했던 내가 미워 널 지키지 못한 내가 싫어
너 없인 하루도 견딜 수 없는걸 널 볼 수 없는 난 난 죽어가는걸
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되돌려줘
너 떠나고 후회하고 있어 참 바보 같지 난 왜 이제서야
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되 돌려줘
어떡해야 널 찾을 수 있어 내게 대답해 줘 어떻게 하는지
괜찮을 거라고 믿었는데 아무렇지 않을 줄 알았는데
널 잃고서 난 어둠 속을 헤메네 오늘도 널 찾아 떠나간 널 찾아
널 믿지 못했던 내가 미워 널 지키지 못한 내가 싫어
단 1분 1초도 견딜 수 없는걸 널 볼 수 없는 난 난 죽어가는걸
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되돌려줘
너 떠나고 후회하고 있어 참 바보 같지 난 왜 이제서야
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되 돌려줘
어떡해야 널 찾을 수 있어 내게 대답해 줘 어떻게 하는지
떠나간 니가 미치게 날 따라 다녀 목을 조르는 것처럼 내 피를 말려
엇갈려 버린 우리인연 하루 종일 전화기만 바라보며
난 널 기다려 가슴 아퍼 이제 다 끝났어 라고 말을 해도 미련이 나를 잡어
널 지키지 못한 내가 미워 싫어 빌어 하늘에 널 돌려달라고
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되돌려줘
너 떠나고 후회하고 있어 참 바보 같지 난 왜 이제서야
(Gimme the light) 그녈 내게 돌려줘 (Gimme the light) 시간을 되 돌려줘
어떡해야 널 찾을 수 있어 내게 대답해 줘 어떻게 하는지

Note: For some words, the sound is g/k so I picked the one I thought was correct. This is also the same for r/l,  b/p and others. I also put dashes in between each syllable so that it would be easier for you guys to follow along with the song & sing along if you wish. (Trust me, I know how it feels to try to sing a song with the whole word all smushed together.) Sorry for the random double-spacing and spacing.
