Always Awake

Always Awake (Jazzyfact)

 

This is an animated music video for Jazzyfact's Always Awake. Jazzyfact is a Korean hip-hop/jazz duo, with the rapper Beenzino and producer Shimmy Twice. The song is about creating art and constantly working to make one's dreams substantial, staying "awake" even while everyone else sleeps. This is my first animation project - I loved seeing my illustrations interact with music and motion, and wish to pursue this field further.

 
 

English Translation:

SAY 'YOUNG-'
'YOUNG-'

SAY 'YOUNG-'
'YOUNG-'

[Verse1]
While Seoul city sleeps
The silent night sky is calm
My heart on the other hand feels urgent
As if there won't be another day
When I realize how alive I am
I refuse to lie down like a corpse
Even if all this right now goes wrong later
I push, push, push back my bedtime
Mirror on the wall - how do I look?
Eyes sunken and face haggard but
I don't care at all- 
My youth is 14-karat gold
Being a little younger is
frustrating but full of potential
so I gotta live my life young, die later

[Hook] 
Whether this night arrives or leaves
I’m always awake
Even if the sun blots out the moonlit night
I’m always awake

[Verse3]
If you’re gonna wander in your dreams
I’d much rather you hurry up and wake
In the night when all the cool cats are awake
all the slackers are asking, "I beg your pardon?"
Either way life is a one-shot deal
If all these things will come to an end
In that moment, I feel like what’s worth remembering
will be me, wide awake.
Artists have to draw the shadows as well
If you make music, listen up until the end
We have to enjoy this youth
My friend, let’s stay awake

[Hook]

Korean Lyrics:

SAY 'YOUNG-'
'YOUNG-'

SAY 'YOUNG-'
'YOUNG-'

[Verse1]
서울시가 잠이 든 시간에
아무 말 없는 밤하늘은 침착해
그와 반대로 지금 내 심장은 
오늘만 살 것처럼 아주 긴박해
살아있음을 느낄 때면,
난 산송장처럼 눕기 싫어
지금 이 순간이 훗날 죽이 되더라도
취침시간을 뒤로 미뤄, 미뤄, 미뤄,
mirror on the wall- 내 모습이 어때?
눈이 푹 패이고 몰골은 초췌해도
I don't care at all- 
내 청춘은 14 carat gold
단지 조금 더 어리단 건
억울하긴 해도 잠재가치가 커
so I gotta live my life young, die later

[Hook] 
이 밤이 와도 이 밤이 가도
I'm always awake
태양이 밤하늘의 달빛을 가려도
always awake

[Verse3]
꿈속에서 헤맬 바엔
어서 잠에서 깨길 바래
멋쟁이들은 깨있는 밤에
게으름뱅이들은 "I beg ya pardon?"
어쨌든 간 인생은 딱 한 번
이 모든 것들이 끝이 난다면
그 순간 내가 기억할만한 건
잠에서 깬 나일 것 같아
그림쟁이들은 그림자까지 그려,
네가 음악을 한다면 끝까지 들어.
우린 이 젊음을 만끽해야 해
my friend, let's stay awake

[Hook]
