일상으로의 초대 An Invitation To Daily Life – 신해철 Shin Hae Chul Guitar Tab

I got to know this song because Music Commander performed it on King of Mask Singer.

With due respect to the original singer, the late Shin Hae Chul, I like Music Commander’s interpretation better. It’s the way he layered the song.

He starts off in his low yet soulful voice, mirroring the indifference of going through the motions of everyday life that is sung in the lyrics. Going into the first chorus, he sings in a controlled and tender voice that just melts the heart, bringing the emotions a notch higher.

Then he brings you down to earth when he ‘speaks’ earnestly, as if directly to you, in a low voice for the rap section in the song. When the last chorus modulates to a key one step higher, that’s when his breathtaking and effortlessly sung high notes hit straight at the emotions. You know the song is ending, and wish it doesn’t.

Finally, he slows it down and ends the song in his charismatic low voice. It’s been a roller-coaster ride of emotions – but one that you would gladly experience over and over again.

The way Music Commander alternates fluidly between singing in his low and high voices – it’s just amazing to hear.

I simply love this song after listening to Music Commander’s performance. Check out his version.

Here’s the original version by Shin Hae Chul:

So everyday lyrics, yet very powerful emotions conveyed behind the storytelling. This will make a good song for marriage proposals.

Here’s what the lyrics say:

An Invitation To Daily Life

When I take a walk, have a cup of tea, read a book, or get lost in thoughts
I’m getting a complete sense of void lately
Right now, I feel like I need someone

When I meet my friend, make a call or stay up late all night
You just keep coming to my mind
For every hour, in every place, I feel you

Come to me, into my life
If I am with you, everything will feel like new
Everyday it’s the same old story
But if I am with you, everything will change

Knowing everything about each other
By keeping an eye on each other all the time
Is easier said than done, I know
But I think I’m ready
So is it okay if I wait for your answer?

I like your face when you’re listening to me so completely
Your serious face that seems to believe all my words
Even when I lie or hyperbolise
Whenever you see me
I feel some indescribable sense arising inside me
As long as you believe in me
I feel like I can do anything
Can you understand how I feel now?

Come to me, into my life
If I am with you, everything will feel like new
Everyday it’s the same old story
But if I am with you, everything will change

I’m spending whole of my days with you
‘Cause I am always thinking about you
I really like to share my life with you
I truly want to be someone for you
So it is an invitation to you
Now I am waiting for the answer from you
I swear I will do anything for you
But sadly I’ve got nothing to give you
All I can do is just say I love you

After sunset, I want us to rely on each other
And rest our weary bodies
And I want us to share each other’s daily happenings
And then fall asleep peacefully
