"If There's a Shadow, There Must Be Light" (Hangul: 그림자도 빛이 있어야 존재) is a song by South Korean sub-unit boy group 3RACHA. It was deleted before their official debut with Stray Kids. The song samples "Too Far (멀어)" by South Korean rapper Primary featuring Beenzino.

Background

It contains the feelings and emptiness of the first mixtape, and the dream is still far away.

Lyrics

 Chan   Changbin   Jisung 

처음 셋이 만나 작업한 날 기억나

걸음마를 떼는 곡들에

우린 아기 엄마처럼 이유식을 만들 듯

모든 세심하게 하나하나 다 신경 써 챙겼었던 날

그 열정에 비례한다면 사람들의 반응은 불가능해

반응 없는 그 반응에 반응했다면 상처만 심하게 반응해

아마 이 곡도 없겠지 그저 잠시 목 마르네

그때의 설렘을 잊은 듯해

달리 말하면 전에 비해 꽤 나 의젓해진 듯해

하다 보니 시간에 쫓겨서 이것에 진듯해

진득이 진드기마냥 붙어 있기엔 지독해

마감이라는 존재의 이 압박감에도

내 꿈을 주체 못 해 내 앞이 까매도

오른손의 펜이 손전등이 되어 앞을 밝혀

세 개가 모이면 등대가 돼 상황이 바뀌어


One for the fame

One for the game

언제라도 좋으니 그들처럼

One for the way

I'm gonna take

어디라도 이 노래 흥얼거려

멀어 더 멀어져버린다 해도 나 멈추지 못해

어두워 보이는 그림자도 빛이 있어야 존재


너무 멀어 like tunnel vision

내 앞에 보이는 빛은 아직 안 커져

분명히 걷고 있는 난

Talk that, called that

Black 어둠이 덮쳐

시작부터 기대감이 너무 컸나 봐

심쿵을 했던 순간이 한순간이었지

Tick tock 시간이 지나도

우리 음악의 조회 수가 안 바뀌지

"아, 그냥 접을까?" 라는 고민에 취해

내 정신을 잃어버리기 전에

내 앞에 있게 해주는 J.One, SPEARB 가

날 잡으면서 말해 "좀만 더 참아보자"

Ah yeah, now wake up Chris, we just started

위로 도착하려면 시작은 발음이라고

생각하면서 작업을 다시 해

3RACHA, we gonna make it one day


One for the fame

One for the game

언제라도 좋으니 그들처럼

One for the way

I'm gonna take

어디라도 이 노래 흥얼거려

멀어 더 멀어져버린다 해도 나 멈추지 못해

어두워 보이는 그림자도 빛이 있어야 존재


시간은 촉박하겠어

또 오늘도 하루에 깨어있을 때

해가 두 번이나 더 바뀌고

심했던 몸살에 알약 두 개를 삼켜

졸음을 참아 마이크 앞에 목소리를 높이던

어린 예술가의 발악은 의미가 있을까

차라리 난 유명해지기 싫다고 우길까

믹스테잎의 후기를 묻지 마

한 번의 결과물로 상황 판단하는 내가 좀 웃기냐

많은 칭찬들과 고생했단 말 이어갈 줄 알았던 주위의 시선은 덤덤해

오히려 남들보다 기대했던 내가 쪽팔리고

지금 올려다보네 하늘은 검정색

고개를 들고 찾아봐도 별 하나 뜨지 않는 회색 그 도시인 듯 여긴 마치 서울 같아

희망을 줬다가 또 뺐는 건 무슨 심보고

약간 내 삶을 마치 시험하는 저울 같아


One for the fame

언제라도 좋으니 그들처럼

One for the way

어디라도 이 노래 흥얼거려

멀어 더 멀어져버린다 해도 나 멈추지 못해

I remember the first day the three of us worked together

Remembering our songs on foot

Like a mother making baby food

The day when I take care of all the meticulous details, one by one

If I proportion that passion, people can't respond

Reacting to unresponsive reactions with a final wounding response

Probably not in this song, I'm just drying out my throat for a bit

It seems I forgot that flattering feeling from then

In other words, I'm more exhausted than I was then

Pressed the majority of the time, it's awful here

It's like a tick is stuck on me, it's horrible

Even with pressures of deadlines

I can't control my dream, even when it stands before me

I pulled my right hand out and turned it into a flashlight

My writing turns into a flashlight


One for the fame

One for the game

Any time you like them

One for the way

I'm gonna take

Hum this song everywhere

Even if I farther get away, I can't stop

Shadows that look dark must still have a light


Too far like tunnel vision

I still haven't turned on the light in front of me

Me, who is clearly walking

Talk that, called that

The expectations have been high since the beginning

The moment my heart beats, what a moment

We can't change how many hits our music gets

I'm wondering if "Ah, should I just give up?"

Before I lost my mind, the one who stood in front of me

J.One and SPEARB held onto me and told me to hold on a little longer

Ah yeah, now wake up Chris, we just started

Starting to feel better is my wish, it's what I think about

Get back to work

3RACHA, we gonna make it one day


One for the fame

One for the game

Any time you like them

One for the way

I'm gonna take

Hum this song everywhere

Even if I farther get away, I can't stop

Shadows that look dark must still have a light


I'll spend less time on my own, the sun has changed twice

I swallow two pills when my body aches severely

My voice raises in front of the mic

Does a young artist's desperation mean anything?

Rather, should I insist that I don't care about the fame?

Don't ask me about the hook of my mixtape

Me, who judge the situation by a single result

It's a funny feeling

Your caution is quite clear

I'm embarassed that I expect more than others

The sky that I see is now black

Lifting my head up, I can't see any stars

That city is gray like Seoul

What does it mean when I give hope and it's taken away?

My fragile life is like a mirror testing me


One for the fame

One for the game

Any time you like them

One for the way

I'm gonna take

Hum this song everywhere

Even if I farther get away, I can't stop

Shadows that look dark must still have a light


One for the fame
One for the game
Any time you like them
One for the way
I'm gonna take
Hum this song everywhere
Even if I farther get away, I can't stop
Shadows that look dark must still have a light
