song of the english

TW/mental health ( I was just thinking about how kpop changed my life)

I’m currently laid in bed crying thinking how much has changed in the past 2years
2 years ago I was anorexic
2 years ago I was cutting myself
2 years ago I was depressed and on this day exactly in hospital for a suicide attempt and fighting for my life
I remember I woke up in the hospital and a song was playing it wasn’t in English but the song just made me smile little did I know I would come across that same song a year later and fall in love with the group that is got7.
I remember finding BTS on tumblr it was a video of Jin making a dad joke, I had no idea what he said but everyone around him was laughing, I fell in love with bts.
Soon I fell in love with BAP, monsta x, seventeen, iKon, day6, blackpink and twice, exo, all nct units and more recently KARD and BigBang.
These groups have helped me connect with so many amazing people, they have helped me feel a sense of happiness, I will be forever thankful for these groups bc they gave me friends that I absolutely adore and couldn’t be more thankful for these friends have helped over come an eating disorder, they have helped calm down on the self harm and they have helped me through more suicide attempts and thoughts, people say kpop doesn’t change lives but it does because it brings you the most amazing people when you least expect

I literally cried watching your animatic just because of how good it was, it is so well drawn and creative and emotional, it gave me a new perspective on this song (idk if it's correct english isn't my first language and it's late sorry), like Alexander have always wanted to leave a mark and was all about legacy and you portrayed the moment he realises that history will remember his failures as well as victories and that its's a huge responsibility, that is so beautiful, you really are an artist

oh my god.. thank you so so so much for this, this is such a nice thing to say, and your english is great!! i was trying so hard to show the conflict of how alex was really happy to be a part of history but somewhat scared because it will see all his mistakes?? man idk im rambling

The story about the howling commandos meeting each other for the first time made me cry. Can you tell us anything more about your time in prison? (Seriously though, this is one of my favorite blogs, I hope you enjoy modding it as much as we do reading it <3)

well, calling it a prison is really a hair misleading; it was actually a labor camp. which is how we had access to the supplies necessary to blow somebody up. some of the supplies. we stole a lot of stuff. 

i don’t have many stories from there that arent incredibly depressing–surprising no one, nazis are not great at running fun summer camps, but they’re pretty good at causing misery–but nonetheless, we did our best to keep spirits up in the face of adversity. sometimes we sang.

no, really, we actually did a fair bit of singing. not loudly, mostly just to keep a steady rhythm as we worked. the guards let us get away with it so long as we kept it quiet. and most of them didn’t speak more than a word or two of english, so they never had any idea what lyrics we were singing.

once we figured that out, we got inventive. 

it turns out that if you have nothing to think about except how badly you want to get out of nazi prison and how much you hate nazis, even the most illiterate of men become poets. we came up with bawdier and bawdier verses for dozens of songs, all increasingly insulting to hitler, red skull, hydra, and nazis in general. old classics like ‘Hitler Has Only Got One Ball’ were trotted out alongside our originals, which included ‘Satan’s Favorite Dinner is Nazis and Spam,’ ‘All You Need To Beat A Hydra Is Fire, Fools,’ and ‘Red Skull’s Blue Because His Mother Never Loved Him.’ i’ll admit we sometimes got a little…personal. but to be fair, they were nazis.

we sang some of the songs we made up for the rest of the 107th when we got out, and they were pretty impressed with how vulgar they were. steve went as red as his uniform and choked on his beer in front of peggy.

 we were very proud of ourselves.

The song Håper du har plass has been played 3 times in this episode (4x8)

First in Savner dere (Miss you), then in Unnskyld (Sorry) and now finally in Håper du har plass (Hope you have room).


In Savner dere Sana is seeing photos of her friends and missing them. The music is sad and only two lines are sung:


Det er ingenting som fenger lenger

Eller føles ut som en ekte følelse


Nothing’s interesting anymore

Or feels like a real feeling


Once again, this is a sad scene. Sana feels like she is no longer a part of the group and seeing these photos is nostalgia. It’s not her life anymore


In Unnskyld we see Sana being distanced from the group. In this clip you cannot hear the lyrics what so ever and the music is really emotional.


In Håper du har plass however you finally get to hear the chorus. This is the lyrics:


Jeg håper du har plass, jeg håper du har plass

Jeg kommer helt alene og ikke med noe lass

Du kan si når jeg må skjerpe meg og sette meg på plass hvis du finner et vindu til meg

Oh, fang meg når jeg faller eller mister meg selv og siste flammen eller gnisten

Jeg skal la deg gråte ferdig for et liv på min bekostning hvis du finner et vindu til meg


I hope you have room, I hope you have room

I come completely alone and without any load

You can tell me when I need to straighten up and put me in place if you find me a window

Oh, catch me when I fall or lose myself and the last flame or spark

I will let you finish crying for a lifetime at my expense if you find me a window


Hideen in this sad song is actually a beautiful message about having your friends’ back and being there for them.


The song you first thought would be sad turned out to be an uplifting song. Julie only shows us this when the group is actually reunited.


Conclusion: Julie is a genius
