wandering in this maze that’s swallowed me
I’m looking for a light that is you…

A Song for You (지금 이 노래)

A Song For You was released on December 13, 2018, as a special gift by Nam Woo-hyun to his beloved fans. Before officially releasing it, the 28-year-old idol had the chance to bring the song for the first time in his solo concert, titled Arbor Day.

Although it was just released, A Song For You had been finished for almost eight months. This was revealed by Nam Woo-hyun while he was being interviewed by Osen magazine on December 15, 2018.

I think it’s been eight months since I recorded the song. I have a music storage document and there are about 20 songs that I haven’t released. To be honest, I feel that A Song For You is the best way to describe the emotions felt by Nam Woo-hyun at this time,” he said as reported by Soompi.

He exemplified this by describing the emotions of the actors when projecting themselves through the characters they portray. Through A Song For You, Nam Woo-hyun, who debuted his solo on May 9, 2016, mixed his life story into song lyrics.

I want to say (to fans), ‘This is a song that holds me now, please listen. I don’t need anything else, just smile when listening to it’. This is a song that I really love, that’s why I released it,” he continued.

Nam Woohyun said that the lyrics of this song are very related to him. In this song, he also explained that people can easily forget things over time. “It’s been nine years since Infinite debuted. Because we have been active for a long time, people can say that this is no longer the best time for Infinite. Therefore, the song A Song For You is very related to me,” he said.

A Song For You, itself, gives the perspective of a man who wants to express his love to the person he loves. Through this song, Woohyun wants to express his warm love to the fans who have supported him all this time.

Let’s check out the snippets of the lyrics!

Let me start this song now

If Only You Are Fine (너만 괜찮다면)

Nam Woo-hyun released his second EP, Second Write, in April 2018. The single titled If Only You Are Fine is an emotional ballad that thrives on the powerful vocals of the singer as he focuses on a relationship that loses its romantic momentum, offering the vibe of a love song while acting as a break-up track at the same time.

If Only You Are Fine was co-written by Nam Woo-hyun, with the production team 7six9 music and is his first single since 2016’s Still I Remember. The song was released through a music video portraying Nam and a woman as a couple wavering between tender, romantic moments and those showing the pair’s separation.

Along with If Only You Are Fine, the album Second Write contains seven other tracks, including the groovy I Swear with Dongwoo, Woohyun’s fellow INFINITE member, and the nostalgic pop-rock track Smile with TraxX’s Jungmo. Woohyun co-write You’re My Lady and I Love You, the latter of which he said was inspired by his fans, along with the single.

Let’s check out the snippets of the lyrics!

So again you cry and I get complicated
Time passes again and again
It’s just that these hurt
I’m proud of you because of you.
I’m sorry to say I’m not a dumbass.
I’d rather you ended it,
This guy’s not gonna do it.

And also this:

We have to keep on fighting forever
I’ll nail my bosom again and leave the time.
We once loved you a lot.
Can I go back then?
If it’s all you want

One and a Half (일과 이분의 일) (featuring Hwang Hye-young)

Nam Woo-hyun performed One And A Half song with Hwang Hye-young for the show Two Yoo Project Sugar Man Ep. 33 in 2016.

The inspiration for the program began with the film Searching For Sugar Man, which relates to the 2012 Swedish–British movie about American singer Sixto Rodriguez, who fell into darkness in the U.S. but ended up as a megastar in South Africa somehow. The program revolves around the fight between two teams led by Yoo Jae-suk and Yoo Hee-yeol. A “Sugar Man” will be brought back by each team: the singer was a one-hit-wonder, but has since vanished from the public eye. The two teams are recreating the old song, Sugar Song into new versions that will make it attractive to the music market today. In order to restore their glory, the producer of each group will recreate the songs with the contemporary artist, “Show Man,” who will change each episode.

Let’s check out the snippets of the lyrics!

When I saw you from afar
I thought I’d go another way
I want to see you
In short, I want to say hello

Also this:

In the way you forgot the day I became two
I’m lonely and empty than when I’m one
Is it because of my half you took
So you could be two
