Joe Sharpe – (North) Korean Girl lyrics

You were so cold with an aching heart
You followed the moon, your only friend, a star
It wasn’t enough to leave your home
You had to find your way all alone

You carried a knife to cut your throat
If you were caught and sent back home
The chongsu still in your mind
Makes you feel like he’s there all the time

Korean Girl, Hangug Sonyeo
Korean Girl, Hangug Sonyeo

Can you see me on this mountain so high
I could have done more besides wave goodbye
I had heard about your tale once or twice, but
I didn’t know being free cost such a price

Korean Girl, Hangug Sonyeo
You were so strong
But you can never go home
You can never go home, my Korean girl
