One Of These Nights - Red Velvet

[These English lyrics are my own. This Korean song belongs to the very talented Red Velvet.]    
 
~~    
   
That night,    
A soft whisper crossed through my mind,    
A flicker of doubt burned inside,    
Her halo shone above.    
   
I cried,    
Cause what was I to do?    
Hourglass of tears falling in,    
An actress watching time.    
   
Once you see the end,    
(Just for a minute…)    
Hear me out again,    
(Stay for a minute…)    
   
Was this always in your heart?    
(Or was this only something,    
That I made up in my mind?)    
   
Somehow, I knew this was one thing from beyond...    
   
The sparkle of storylines,    
One moment froze in time,    
One blink, one second, just too late,    
A fantasy of millennia.    
   
An angel of gentleness,    
Lost spirit of the wind,    
In your eyes, only she was the fairest of all.    
   
When destiny revealed itself at last…    
   
It was her in moonlight.    
(One of these nights~)    
It was her in moonlight.    
(One of these nights~)    
   
That time,    
Even if the castle we built,    
Was crumbling down to the Earth,    
For hope, I kept on a smile.    
   
Your lantern enchanted,    
(Just for a minute…)    
Warmed me even if,    
(Stay for a minute…)    
   
You were never mine.    
(Her starlight shines to you while,    
Darkness takes over my eyes.)    
   
Somehow, I saw the changing tides slowly rise...    
   
The sparkle of storylines,    
One moment froze in time,    
One blink, one second, just too late,    
A fantasy of millennia.    
   
An angel of gentleness,    
Lost spirit of the wind,    
In your eyes, only she was the fairest of all.    
   
When destiny revealed the only path...    
   
Baby, one of these days,
One of these years...    
Tears of purest silk,    
Will reveal the hands,    
That takes you from my own~    
   
The marvel of storylines,    
The moment that froze all time,    
One blink, for you to disappear,    
In promise of the truest love.    
   
An angel of innocence,    
Hidden love of the abyss,    
In God’s eyes, your heart was the fairest of all.

When destiny gave you the universe...    
   
It was her in moonlight.    
(One of these nights~)    
It was her in moonlight.    
(One of these nights~)

This song describes an instance on my birthday when I knew that she was the one for him and not me. That she, with her gentle and noble heart, was someone he could really be himself around and love, not me. Sometimes, I say to myself that I saw this in the way he smiled and the way he was so happy around her. I am jealous, naturally, but I would be a horrible person to hate my best friend (the girl) and the guy I am with for this. I would be horrible to deny the possibility of him finding a better happiness with someone else. Nothing he did was wrong at the party—they were simply hanging out as friends—I knew, and I saw this clearly. If one of these nights, he changes his mind about me and goes to her, as long as he is honest about his feelings, I’ll be happy for both of them.
