사 이 Between – A Earman Vamp (Feat. 하현우 Ha Hyunwoo) Guitar Tab

A Earman Vamp – who? I can imagine how most people would be baffled when they see the name of this artiste.

He calls himself AEV the Piano Man (or simply 에이브 in Korean). I never knew until I found out from my research for this post that AEV actually stands for ‘A Earman Vamp’. A Korean pop pianist and composer, I came to know him through his association with Korean indie band Guckkasten – he’s a member of Team Guckkasten, a group of staff and musicians who go on tour with the band.

사 이 (or Between) is a single released by AEV and found in the album, “Aev Diary, Vol. 10”. Admittedly, I found this song a little too slow and calm for my liking at first. Added to that, I thought the repetitive melody for the first few lines in the verse made it sound boring.

As I listened to it more, Ha Hywunwoo’s emotive vocals made me change my mind. When I began to piece together the lyrics, I grew to like the song.

The music is composed by AEV and the lyrics are written by Ha Hyunwoo. As expected from Ha Hyunwoo, the lyrics are poetic and reflective.

Between

On this barren road
Inside the spaces of reality
By the sweep of the wind
I stop my steps and look back

The spring day that steered away from me
Left behind its many scents
Follow them, follow them, follow them

Between the hurried steps
Or between those buildings
It’s nowhere to be found…

No matter how hard I try to have it all
All that these little hands grab hold of
Are the crumbling desires
And worn down hopes
Decayed beliefs that are now awaken

Between the hurried steps
Or between those buildings
It’s nowhere to be found
Between the tall staircases
Or on the crowded calendar pages
The image of me that I couldn’t find

Taken out from the hollowness
Everything that will be the proof of me
One day I look back and they’re gone

Travelled to a faraway place
Followed the tracks of the world
In the end, this place I’ve come to
Is the spot I left myself behind…
