Before I head off to bed, I want introduce Thai indie rock band Klear. They released their first album “Stay Alive” back in January. Their first single from the album, “Hai (Disappearance)” was featured in Cheer and Cee’s first lakorn together, “Pieng Pen Fah (Only heaven)” and also the film, “Rak/Sam/Sao (Love triangle)”. Good start.
I think they’re absolutely brilliant.
The song that I’m featuring is called “pai”, meaning leave. It’s a song about a person who has been looking for her one true love for a long time, she in finds him, and starts dating him. Then, she discovers he loves another. Ouch! Devastated, she harshly breaks up with him. She tells him leave mofo, if you have someone else in your heart, just leave.

There is no concept to the video, it’s just the lead singer being all dramatic.
Lyrics translated by me. Do make corrections if you see errors.
The person beside me is the most impressive person
The person who I can see myself with resembles you….
But when I’m close to you, sometimes I see that you’re very distant
I look in your eyes, I don’t know where you’re at….
The person you love full heartedly
It’s not the person here, right?
Leave….if you don’t want to be here
If you have someone else in your heart
let me go….leave and go faraway
Just let our story end
(Let our love fade away…)
I have been waiting for you a long time
I waited for that someone and I found you…
I hoped that it would have been possible to be with you
But only after short while, my dreams were shattered..
