Before I even realized it the rain gathered around my feet
The tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

Sounds of the clock in a barren room
The noise of the rain on the roof and my lips
Inside the pocket of the coat I rarely wear
is the ring along with the overwhelming memory
I haven’t seen the city in a few days
The gathered rain are like little mirrors
I struggle within them because of the pain
Because without you I’m a chair with a short leg
The umbrella was too small for the both of us
but the umbrella shielded us from the cold world
Now it seems much to big and awkward
Your left shoulder always got so wet
I hang my head with the weight of the memories
My shoelaces are untied, undone
And all that’s next to me is the rain and wind
(not there) is a person that will hold my umbrella for a while
and I cry

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
The tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

[Chorus]
You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
alone in the rain

Alone in the rain, rain, rain
Nothing but pain, pain, pain
Girl I just want you to know
Alone in the rain, rain, rain
Nothing but pain, pain, pain
And I just can’t let you go

The ground has gathered the tears of the sky
I can see the moon behind the clouds that block the stars
The sound of lonely shoes echo down the alley
I turn around, it’s just a heart wrenching night
A shadow that looks just like me
The two of us that couldn’t see “us”
Are we now two people?
The answer is so lonely
The picture in my mind and my response is vague
The umbrella was too big in my eyes
The umbrella I will close facing the world that made me cry
The umbrella that I opened with the promise of forever
Under the ripped umbrella are the two hearts
I guess even though I turn around you wont be there
I put my two hands deep inside my pockets
Even though I walk as if carefree
My two cheeks will become wet so easily

Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet
and the tears that I kept from falling are pooling in my eyes
I cry

[Chorus]

I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head
I opened the door of my heart
you’re the umbrella above my head
You are my shadow, I am your shade
You’re the umbrella above my head

Because you are not next to me
With an umbrella, outside your house
I waited for you
I cry

You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
I need you back in my life

You were the umbrella above my head
In the night where the cold rain fell above my shoulders
You being by my side was a habit
I can’t be without you
Forever in the rain

There are a few versions of the translations, but basically they are all the same. I really love this song; you can always trust Epik High to combine ballad and hip hop to create a wonderful song like this. Their voices blend together really nicely; Epik High actually thought of Younha when they were writing this song and took out a lot of their parts just for her to sing it. Younha sounds like she’s repressing her feelings in this song. Her part is SO hard to sing. It doesn’t sound so but really, try singing it and you’d realise that the pitch is high and a lot of control is needed. I think I’ve said enough how much I love her, so I won’t say anymore. And Epik High guys always sound awesome, so really, just listen to this song. =)

I’m kinda disappointed that Younha, Mithra and Tukutz didn’t appear in the MV, but it’s okay, I guess. Tablo is so drenched in it, I hope he didn’t catch a flu. The scene where he brushed his teeth with the rainwater is funny, haha. The ending with the rainbow coming out of the two people’s heads are LOL. xD

Its first LIVE performance on 20/07. Younha sounded nervous in the beginning, but after that she sounds awesome as always. She’s so pretty, omg major girlcrush. *.* Tablo’s get-up looks good and Mithra is cute with the specs. The fans were holding umbrellas, lmao.

I’ve never embedded so many videos of one song in one post, but I DON’T CARE I love them. This is the second performance on 25/07, and it sounds as awesome as always. I’m saying this ‘cos they always manage to sound exactly like in the recorded version. Tukutz looks cute with his mini keyboard. =D

I hope Epik High and Younha will have more collaborations in the future; they’re awesome together. =)
