“Flame of Love” by Taemin – Fan Translation

Taemin, one of my favorite Korean pop singers, has just released a Japanese mini album. I’ve attempted to translate the lyrics of its title song, “Flame of Love”.

To avoid any potential copyright infringement, I will only be providing my interpretation of the song. If you would like to see the original Japanese lyrics, please follow this link

Red highlight = chorus

 

If I reached out my hand, it seems as though I could reach it, your face blurred by tears.

Like those two people*, the setting sun and the rising moon pass each other by and call out for the darkness.

Slipping through fingertips, the days of happiness become memories.

Hey, unchangingly, I am still left behind.

 

Burning red, flame of love.

Again, fragments of love soar like sparks.

Melting your heart,

it burns until that time**, flame of love.

 

No matter how brightly the stars shine, it just feels painful to think of you.

If every beautiful thing disappeared, could I forget it all?

The moon is overshadowed, morning jumps forth.

Even if the birds’ song caresses my ears,

hey, I am am still held captive by love in this place.

 

 

Burning red, flame of love.

Again, fragments of love soar like sparks.

Melting your heart,

it burns until that time, flame of love.

 

 

Never disappearing,

when can this flame shine on you, gently and warmly?

 

Burning red, flame of love.

Again, fragments of love soar like sparks.

Melting your heart,

it burns until that time, flame of love.

 

 

Burning red, flame of love.

Again, fragments of love soar like sparks.

Melting your heart,

it burns until that time, flame of love.

 

It burns until that time, flame of love.

 

*The original lyrics are 二人のように. We can pretty safely assume that those two people are the lovers who are the focus of the song.

**”That time” is presumably when his lover’s heart has been melted.
