천국의 문 (Heaven’s Door) – 에릭남 Eric Nam Guitar Tab

I know Eric Nam as a singer from some singing competition in Korea but it has never occurred to me to find out more about him. Not until recently, when I watched a Korean variety show in which he appeared and his good English – he’s Korean-American – caught my attention.

So I started looking up YouTube for his music videos and came across the song, Heaven’s Door, or 천국의 문 (romanised: Cheonguge mun) in Korean. It’s his first single from his debut EP, “Cloud 9”, released in 2013.

It’s a catchy, easy listening pop song. The song generally follows the usual chord progression although there is a chord in the pre-chorus that falls outside the chord progression. The chord progression for the bridge section took me a while to figure out but there is no difficult chord involved.

There is also an English version of the song (which you can watch in the playlist below) but it doesn’t sound as good compared to the original Korean version. I think it’s because the lyrics doesn’t fit as well with the melody.

Somehow, I don’t think this song showcases Eric Nam’s vocals very well. It could be that he’s singing in Korean (not his native language) but definitely check out his version of Taeyang’s Eyes, Nose, Lips in English. I’m impressed. What do you think?

Anyway, here is the English translation of the Korean lyrics for Heaven’s Door:

Heaven’s Door

The wind feels so good, it caresses me
I slowly set fire to my heart and move my steps
There are so many unfamiliar roads, where shall I go?
I’ll figure it out if I go wherever I’m led to, wherever I step on

A fluttering excitement toward a new world
It’s a sweetness that is like honey and once again

I open the doors to heaven, led by you
Walking on an unknown path
When the doors of heaven are open, will I meet you?
My answer, I want to find my real answer

It’s a long way to you but I love the journey
Fluttering excitement and nervousness strangely mix together
There’s no same way, what kind of me will I see?
I’ll figure it out if I go however it spreads out, however it is

This trembling is met after wandering for a long time
It’s a coziness that’s like a dream and once again

Repeat *

My answer, I want to find my real answer

When I stand at the end of this road, when I stand right next to you
Can I look forward to a me who is a bit more mature?
Being in a world with you – how would it feel?

Once again, I see the light of heaven, it pulls me in
Walking on an unknown path
When the doors of heaven are open, will I meet you?
My answer, I want to find my real answer

Repeat *

And here is the lyrics of the English version of Heaven’s Door:

Heaven’s Door

You’re all I ever wanted
You’re all I ever needed
Getting to be closer, so the window of time won’t pass me by
Baby I can see it
Is it real or am I dreaming?
My heart is beating faster, and even faster
You’re headed straight at me
I know, that we may have our troubles
But my heart knows that this is so right

Baby I’m running towards the horizon
I know we’ll get there
Even though the road may be less travelled
Running for the horizon
And when we get there
We can seize the dawn and leave the dark behind

Standing at a crossroad, everything’s slow motion
See I’m just a ship lost in the ocean, but you’ll always be my light
The road ahead is broken, we will undertake it
I guess it’s just forever, and whenever, my heart will take the lead
I know that we may have our troubles
But girl you know this feels so right

Baby I’m running towards the horizon
I know we’ll get there
Even though the road may be less travelled
Running for the horizon
And when we get there
We can seize the dawn and leave the dark behind

Woah, yeah
We can seize the dawn and leave the dark behind
Woah, woah yeah

And at the end of the road, you’ll come back I want to know
All we’ve said and all we’ve done (Would you stand right there with me?)
And to know that we have made it alright
That we’ve made it, and we stand in the light

Baby I’m running towards the horizon
I know we’ll get there
Even though the road may be less travelled
Running for the horizon
And when we get there
We can seize the dawn and leave the dark behind

Running towards the horizon
I know we’ll get there
Even though the road may be less travelled
Running for the horizon
And when we get there
We can seize the dawn and leave the dark behind
