Yeah, wassup

You know time flows like stars

시작은 에미넴 가리온 에픽하이
In the beginning, it was Eminem, Garion, and Epik High

따라 하는 걸 넘어 내 랩을 적고 새기다
Going beyond imitating them, I wrote and carved my own rap

보니까 벌써 어느새 내가 홍대
and somehow found myself at Hongdae already
Note: Hongdae is an abbreviation of Hongik Daehakgyo (University) and also refers to the area nearby. Hongdae is a vibrant area known for its indie music scene, clubs, arts, and so on. RM used to be an underground rapper releasing and performing tracks under his then-name “Runch Randa.”

그때 내 가산 온통 다 (****) 꼰대
Back then, my lyrics were all (****) stubborn old fogey
Note: 꼰대 (pronounced kkondae) is a derogatory slang describing someone (often someone older) who is stubborn about keeping old standards and judges other people who are not following their own standards. 

But we dunno, we dunno, we dunno the future

쉼 없이 꿈꾸던 중 날 묶어버린 현실의 덫 오 그 청춘의 덫
The trap of reality that tied me up who had been dreaming non-stop, oh, that trap of youth

뜨거운 가슴은 차가운 머리에 져버렸어 (Damn)
My fiery heart lost to my cold head (Damn)

그렇게 내 선택이 옳다며 맹신하던 그 와중에
To me who had a blind faith that my choice was right,

천사인지 악마인지 모를 그것이 말을 해
the thing that I can’t tell whether it’s an angel or a devil speaks to me,

랩 제대로 해볼 생각 없냐고
asking me if I want to do rap seriously,

Yes or No 망설일 시간은 없다고
Yes or No, telling me that there’s no time to hesitate

더 바보는 되기 싫었던 난 이곳에 왔고
I, who didn’t want to be any bigger of a fool, came to this place

3년이 지나갔어
And three years have passed by

Some say art is long, life is short

But now for me, art is life, life is sports

Just do it, uh
Wordplay: “Some say life is short, but for me life is sports, I ‘just do it’ like the sports brand Nike’s trademark.”

난 달라졌을까
Would I have been different

다른 길을 택했다면
if I had chosen a different path

멈춰서 뒤돌아봤다면
if I had paused and looked back

Oh hey ya, hey ya

난 뭘 보게 될까
What will I get to see

이 길의 끝에서
at the end of this path

니가 서있을 그 곳에서
where you will be standing

Oh hey ya, hey ya

수많은 시간이 흐르고 2013년
Countless times have passed, and it’s 2013

연습생으로 있었지 3년을
I have been a trainee for three years

내 모습은 고등학생에서
My appearance, from a high school student,

어느새 커버린 어린이가 됐어
became a grown-up child, without my knowing
Reference: Adult child

욕심의 새치가 많아지고
There are more premature gray hairs of greed,

그 많던 친구들은 하나둘씩 갈라지고
and those many friends of mine split off one by one

가족없이 난 외롭게도
Without family, lonelily,

서울에서 맞는 세 번째 봄
I greet the third spring in Seoul

데뷔가 코앞이면 걱정이 없어질 줄 알았어
I thought all the worries would be gone when the debut gets in front of my nose

달라질게 없는 현재에 난 눈을 감았어
To the present with no room for change, I closed my eyes

현실은 달랐고 주위에서 날 말려도
The reality was different, and even though people around me tried to stop me,

빛도 안 보이는 터널들을 나 홀로 걸었어
I walked through the tunnels without any lights, alone

혼자인 줄 알았는데 알고 보니 일곱
I thought I was alone, but then learned that it was seven

맨발이 아닌 방탄이란 신을 신고
Rather than being barefoot, I wear the shoes that are called “Bangtan”

앞으로 나가야지 한발더 새롭게 더
and go forward another step, afresh, more

서울에서 맞을 네 번째 봄 woah
The fourth spring that I will greet in Seoul, woah

난 달라졌을까
Would I have been different

다른 길을 택했다면
if I had chosen a different path

멈춰서 뒤돌아봤다면
if I had paused and looked back

Oh hey ya, hey ya

난 뭘 보게 될까
What will I get to see

이 길의 끝에서
at the end of this path

니가 서있을 그 곳에서
where you will be standing

Oh hey ya, hey ya

2010년의 해
The year of 2010

내 걸음은 서울로 향하네
My steps head to Seoul

그저 춤이 좋아 시작했던
I, who started out just because of the love for dance,

내가 이젠 무대 위에 서네
now stand on the stage

그 사이에 많은 고통과 상처들을 이겨내고 날 갖춰
Overcoming many pains and scars that occurred in between, I prepared myself

부러질 바엔 휘고 말자는 나의 관념을 살려가며 3년을 달려
Making use of my life principle to bend rather than to break, I ran for three years

내 가슴 안에 있는 별들을 밝혀
and ignited the stars in my heart

이젠 날 새롭게 비춰봐
Now I try shining a new light on me

세상이란 백지에 방탄도 새겨봐
and carving “Bangtan” into a blank page that is called the world

더 불 켜진 내 미랠 걸어가
I walk towards my future with more lights turned on

웃음을 지어 먼 훗날 하하
I put on a smile, in the far future, haha

난 달라졌을까
Would I have been different

다른 길을 택했다면
if I had chosen a different path

멈춰서 뒤돌아봤다면
if I had paused and looked back

Oh hey ya, hey ya

난 뭘 보게 될까
What will I get to see

이 길의 끝에서
at the end of this path

니가 서있을 그 곳에서
where you will be standing

Oh hey ya, hey ya

난 달라졌을까
Would I have been different

다른 길을 택했다면
if I had chosen a different path

멈춰서 뒤돌아봤다면
if I had paused and looked back

Oh hey ya, hey ya

난 뭘 보게 될까
What will I get to see

이 길의 끝에서
at the end of this path

니가 서있을 그 곳에서
where you will be standing

Oh hey ya, hey ya
