First Snow, a happy, wintry bop for December. The music makes you think of cute little elves frolicking in the snow.
So yet another cute song from EXO. Correction, it’s magically cute sounding, key word sounding. Admin Pisces has already shown us in the lyrics that this song falls in line with Peter Pan. Remember that one? Musically adorable, lyrically sad.

di yi chang xue xia qi de wu hou
After the afternoon of the first snow
xiang he ni fen xiang gan dong
I wanted to share and enjoy with you,
que zhi chen mo dui zhe hua tong
but only silence faced the microphone

On this afternoon as the first snow is falling
전화를 걸 수만 있다면 기쁠텐데

If only I could call you, I’d be so happy

We have now come to the end of EXO’s second EP, and their first winter special album Miracles in December. A special winter tradition they have continued since 2013.
We are returning to a lonely, somber, love-lorn EXO once more in the song that ends this album.
From the opening lines, one can only infer that it has been a “year” since “Christmas Day” and EXO is looking back at what had been with their love interest. Unfortunately for EXO it is a reflection to another failed situation.
And we had such hopes! Didn’t we?

wo hai zai yong bao zhe
I’m still embracing
zai ku qi de ni
You who is still crying
na e meng tai qing xi
That nightmare, too clearly etched in my head
xia yi miao wo ye jiu qing xing
I awake in the next second

*Re-organized by Admin Pisces* (I hope the translations are not messed up because of the organization.)
을 꿨어요 울던 그대를
안아주기 전에 꿈에서 깨어 버렸죠
angmongeul kkwosseoyo uldeon geudaereul
anajugi jeone kkumeseo kkaeeo beoryeotjyo
I had a nightmare before I could hug you,
Who was crying, I woke up

My goodness. What an incredible week this has been already for EXO. Not only have they been soaring on the music charts, but their pre-order sales (both physical and digital) have been doing well too for ‘For Life.’
And now we come to ‘My Turn to Cry’ a favorite of many EXO-L’s to be sure. Certainly one of many favorites of this Admin (especially the live performance.)
Listening to Baekhyun’s live solo of this song while accompanying himself on piano shows another side of the longing, mournful emotional depth that this piece describes.
For your viewing pleasure.

Before I begin, **in Chanyeol voice** let me tell you a story about how last week’s analysis has ruined Admin Aqua. I got a little spoiled finding sheet music for Miracles in December. It only happened once and I miss it already. I don’t want it to be a one time thing though!
But back to the task at hand…..

Uh huh can I tell you a story of season
xīng yǔ fēi wǎng dì xià xiàng shì jì huá
The stars rain on the earth like it was planned
dú zì chuān guò sēn lín hé xī bo de qì yā
Crossing over forests and thin air pressure alone
wú liáo chén jì de yè méi shen me kě yi xiě xià
The boring still night, not much to write down
huò kè zài bì huà
or engrave on murals
