매일 돌아가 본다고
I go back every day

그때의 나로
to myself of back then

포기를 선택한 삶으로
To the life where I chose to give up,

날 놓아본다고
I place myself

 

But 세상에는 있지
But, in the world, there are 

변하지 않는 몇 진실
some unchanging truths —

시간은 앞으로 흐른다는 것
that time flows forward,

만약은 없단 걸
that there are no ifs

 

까마득 잊을만하면 생각나 그 시절
When they feel distant, the memories of those days come flooding back

악마의 손길과 운명의 recall
Touch of the devil, and fateful recall

궁금해 아직 왜 다시 불렀는지도
I still wonder why it called me again

매일 ask me, guess it, 채찍, repeat, oh
Every day, ask me, guess it, whip it, repeat, oh

변할 건 없다며 난 결국 또
Telling myself that nothing will change, I, eventually, again,

걱정은 억지로 잠궈, close
lock my worries up, close

How much love, how much joy

위안을 주며 stay calm, alone
I comfort myself and stay calm, alone

 

그래 I don’t care, 전부 내
Yeah, I don’t care, everything is my

운명의 선택, so we’re here
fate’s choice, so we’re here

내 앞을 봐, the way is shinin’
I look ahead, the way is shinin’

Keep goin’ now

(Ready, set, and begin)

 

그 길로 길로 길로
That way, way, way

Wherever my way

오직 Ego, Ego, Ego
Only ego, ego, ego

Just trust myself

 

문득 스쳐가는 j-hope이 아닌 정호석의 삶
The life of Jung Hoseok who is not J-Hope flashes across my mind

희망이란 없고 후회만 가득했겠지 till I die
It must have been full of regret with no hope till I die,

내 춤은 뜬구름을 잡을 뿐
with my dance only chasing ghosts,
= with my dance only catching drifting clouds, translated literally.

나의 꿈을 탓하고
with me blaming my dream

살아 숨쉬는 거에 의문을
and casting doubt on why I live and breathe

Oh my God God God God

 

Time goes by

7년의 걱정이 드디어 입 밖 [ib-bak]으로
The worries of 7 years finally come out of my mouth

모두 해소되는 핍박 [pib-bak]
All the oppressions get resolved

가장 믿던 그들의 답은 내 심장으로
Into my heart are the answers from those I trusted the most

하나뿐인 hope 하나뿐인 soul
One and only hope, one and only soul

하나뿐인 smile 하나뿐인 너
One and only smile, one and only you

세상 그 진실에 확실해진 답
The answer that became clear, to the truth of the world,

변하지 않는 그 어떤 나
is a me that is unchanging
(“a” is there intentionally)

Right 

 

이제 I don’t care, 전부 내
Now I don’t care, everything is my

운명의 선택, so we’re here
fate’s choice, so we’re here

내 앞을 봐, the way is shinin’
I look ahead, the way is shinin’

Keep goin’ now

(Ready, set, and begin)

 

그 길로 길로 길로
That way, way, way

Wherever my way

오직 Ego, Ego, Ego
Only ego, ego, ego

Just trust myself

 

믿는 대로
Whatever I believed,

가는 대로
wherever I went,

(그 길로 길로 길로)
(That way, way, way)

운명이 됐고
became my fate

중심이 됐어
and became my core

(Wherever my way)

힘든 대로
Whether or not I was exhausted

또 슬픈 대로
or whether or not I was sad,

(오직 Ego, Ego, Ego)
(Only ego, ego, ego)

위로가 됐고
it became my comfort,

날 알게 해줬어
and help me know myself
(It’s more like, “I was exhausted and sad along the way, but the struggles themselves somehow became my comfort and helped me know myself.”)

(Just trust myself)

 

Map of the Soul

Map of the All

That’s my ego, that’s my ego

Map of the Soul

Map of the All

That’s my Ego, that’s my Ego
