Biography

Hee Young was born in a seaside town in South Korea in a musical family - a composer/keyboardist father and a singer mother. She decided to fly to the US at the age of 16 and spent her teenage years in South Georgia and Texas. When she turned 21, she moved up to New York and studied in SUNY Purchase Music Conservatory.
Now residing in Brooklyn, NY, She released her first EP 'So Sudden' in the fall of 2009, which was produced by Saul Simon MacWilliams(Chris Garneau, Jenny Owen Youngs) and mixed & mastered by Dan Romer(Ingrid Michaelson, April Smith, The Woes). After winning the first place of the Singer/Songwriter contest at We Are Listening and getting rave reviews from The Mag UK, she was signed to the biggest Korean Indie label, Pastel Music. Recently she was featured in Elle Korea's November 2011 issue. Her first full length album is expected to be released in early 2012.

Lyrics

Let Me In

Written By: Hee Young

If you want, I can be here wait for you
Like the sun that shines your way through
The nighttime, I can be the moon for you
Givin’ the love you're craving for

But you,
You never let me in

You only let me down
In the rocking chair,
I'm crying waiting for the morning to come

If you want, I'll stay away from you
Like the sun that hides its face behind
The clouds, I'll give a little time
Waste it, throw it all around

Cause you,
You never let me in
You never let me in

You only let me down
In the rocking chair,
I'm crying waiting for the morning to come
Ooh ooh
But you never let me in
You.
You never let me in

You only let me down
In the rocking chair,
I'm crying waiting for the morning to come
(Morning to come, when the sun goes down, I won’t be here)

Buy Myself A Goodbye

Written By: Hee Young

Today, today is the day
I’ll burn the grass
Fire the crickets inside
And the time we spent

I'll miss the trees
But now is what I need
Pull the roots out of the ground
Burn these thoughts behind my eyes
And your face

I'll buy myself a goodbye
And then sell it to someone who really needs
(You I need)
And when I see you on the street
It won't matter cause I'll be on my feet
On my feet

Tomorrow follows- I’ll gather the seeds
And plant something new
Plant a face I love
Who will let me be

Wait for the breeze
She knows just what i need
Take the remnants off the ground
And these thoughts behind my eyes
And your face

Buy Myself A Goodbye

Written By: Hee Young

I'll buy myself a goodbye
And then sell it to someone who really needs

And when I see you on the street

On my feet

Tomorrow follows- I’ll gather the seeds
And plant something new
Plant a face I love
Who will let me be

Wait for the breeze
She knows just what i need
Take the remnants off the ground
And these thoughts behind my eyes
And your face
