Fix Me

최근 무한반복하고 있는 Icon for Hire의 발라드 곡.

평소에도 그 애절함 때문에 좋아하던 곡인데

집에서 혼자 가사를 보며 따라부르다가

그만 눈물 줄줄……디지는 줄 알았네.

그 애절함은 누구를 향한 걸까? 날 사랑하지 않는 연인? 날 사랑하지 않는 신? 그것이 무엇이든, 이 노래는 결핍과 갈망에 대한 간절한 노래이다.

이 노래의 가장 애절한 부분은 4번 반복되는 이 구절.

Every scar one day will heal
Every tear one day will dry

모든 흉터는 어느날 치료될꺼야. 모든 눈물은 어느날 마를꺼야.

모두가 그렇게 바라며, 기도하겠지.

Another day, another waste of my heart
It only beats when it wants to
Another step, and I've learned to hold my breath
Still scared to want you

I'll be the mess, you be the medicine
I'll be the mess, you play the medicine

Why don't you fix me?
I can't help myself
Why don't you fix me?
You know I'm fading still

I have tried to be better inside
We both know how it kills
I've tried to heal myself so many times,
But we both know that I'm still ill

I'll be the mess, you be the medicine
I'll be the mess, you play the medicine

Why don't you fix me?
I can't help myself
Why don't you fix me?
You know I'm fading still
[x2]

And you know how I try, fight to survive
My hands are bloody from holding myself too tight
You know how it hurts
You know what the pain will be worth

Every scar one day will heal
Every tear one day will dry
[x4]

Why don't you fix me?
I can't help myself
Why don't you fix me?
You know I'm fading still

Why don't you fix me?
Don't you leave me here
Why don't you fix me?
I'm fading faster and faster

Why don't you fix me?
Why don't you fix me?
