Sneak Peek: English lyrics for "High With Me" by Changmo.

“High With Me” by Changmo

Was it beautiful?
I’ll leave the night behind.
The darkness is only temporary, and
I’ll start a new journey.
Bottoms up!
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Yeah, yeah.

The music industry can f*ck off. I’ll never sell out.
PB, my older brother, tells me that
I grew up a lot. So, I just want to have fun now.
From financial difficulties to financial freedom.
However, this business comes with new restrictions and restraints. I feel it:
a kid called Changmo, who is living the life of a rap star.
From 400 dollars to some thousand dollars a month for rent,
I don’t know how to balance my budget. Damn.
However, I don’t need to know.
Right now, my clan is filled with ambition, and they got my back.
ILLI f*ckin’ NIRE.
My veterans: Makesense, P, Black.
I don’t believe in you, because you don’t need me to.
I believe in my dreams, my record label and my voice.
To me, music is just a game amateurs play.
However, for the fool who risks it all
it’s worth millions in any currency.
My heart is made of iron. It doesn’t stop. I’m Tony Stark.
I smoke Marlboro Red. The smoke rises.
Go away, all the different drinks and different minds.
F*ck off, all of you. I want it: number one, one, one.

Was it beautiful?
I’ll leave the night behind.
The darkness is only temporary, and
I’ll start a new journey.
Bottoms up!
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Yeah, yeah.

I remember,
sitting in front of the Han river as inspiration flowed.
Nothing could change my mind.
I was suffering and needed money.
Why didn’t Illionaire…
Why didn’t they choose me?
The Show Me The Money rappers—
half of them
don’t have any passion or interest in music. They’re just wannabes.
Why do they get to make money?
Why am I eating bagged ramen?
Why do they have girls lining up just to meet them?
Why did I hit rock bottom?
However, I couldn’t stop. The hustle life was my life even if it killed me.
I opened my third eye,
and realized rap was like a sport.
Looking cool,
would never be enough to win.
My ideas about rap and being a rapper [/literally, philosophy] were right.
Wannabes, just look at me.
I’m living at the top of the top of the top.
The gods above this sky, their anger…
A fan of the suns and skies, [I prayed]. Eventually my hand
bashed a piano, and I finally started making money.
To the fools who come after me,
putting their necks on the line… don’t give up.
On and on.
Time To Make Money [/the name of the album] is just one chapter of my life.
It’s the end now. The sun shines on a new day.
Four years of passion… I was like a larvae growing.
I broke out of the prison I was in and stretched my bird-like wings.
The person chasing a dream gets lonelier as the night gets longer.
We’re small beings [literally, cells] following the world’s logic and reason.
In the end, the sun shines on everyone.

Was it beautiful?
I’ll leave the night behind, because darkness is only temporary,
and start a new journey.
Bottoms up!
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Are you high with me?
Yeah, yeah.

    1. Thank you! I am slowly getting more and more requests, and I have a few of my own favorite Korean hip hop songs that need English lyrics.

      A lot more content on the way, too! My weekend is jam-packed with Korean hip hop, rain or shine at this point…

  1. I remember the first time I heard Changmo, he captivated me with Maestro, and now, to see him growing and getting even better is such a nice thing to witness. He is finally getting the recognition he deserves! Thanks for the translation!

    1. Yess, one of my faves from the album! When I listen to it I have to get up, jump and dance to it, such a great energy booster. I can’t understand a word but somehow I catch the feeling every time haha.

  2. Thanks for the lyrics! It was so hard to find translations for those non-title hip hop songs nowadays, this made my day~

    1. You’re welcome! I accept requests, too, although I am a bit behind at the moment. I have to focus on work this week, but I’ll be back to translating songs and SMTM soon! 🙂
