Spotify storyline: For the band, the past seven years had been tumultuous, running on their feet and losing balance partway. Regardless, BTS has learned balance and now stands ground wherever they may be, singing of their dedication to carry on their fated path.

I can’t understand what people are sayin’

어느 장단에 맞춰야 될지
Which tune should I dance to

한 발자국 떼면 한 발자국 커지는 shadow
The shadow that grows by a step when I walk a step

잠에서 눈을 뜬 여긴 또 어디
Waking up, where is this place that I open my eyes to

어쩜 서울 또 New York or Paris
Maybe Seoul, or New York, or Paris

일어나니 휘청이는 몸
Standing up, my body is reeling

 

Look at my feet, look down

날 닮은 그림자
The shadow that resembles me

흔들리는 건 이놈인가
Is it this guy that is shaking

아니면 내 작은 발끝인가
or is it the tips of my small feet

두렵잖을 리 없잖아
There’s no way that I’m not afraid

다 괜찮을 리 없잖아
There’s no way that everything is okay

그래도 I know
But, I know

서툴게 I flow
Awkwardly, I flow

저 까만 바람과 함께 날아
With that black wind, I fly

 

Hey na na na

미치지 않으려면 미쳐야 해
To remain sane, one must go insane

Hey na na na

나를 다 던져 이 두 쪽 세상에
I throw all of myself into this two-sided world

Hey na na na

Can’t hold me down cuz you know I’m a fighter

제 발로 들어온 아름다운 감옥
The beautiful prison I walked into on my own 

Find me and I’m gonna live with ya

 

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

(Eh-oh)

올라타봐 bring the pain oh yeah
Ride on, bring the pain oh yeah

Rain be pourin’

Sky keep fallin’

Everyday oh na na na

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

 

Bring the pain

모두 내 피와 살이 되겠지
It will all become my blood and flesh

Bring the pain

No fear, 방법을 알겠으니
No fear, since I know the way

작은 것에 breathe
To the small things, breathe
Boy With Luv‘s original Korean title is 작은 것들을 위한 시, “A poem for small things.” The song describes BTS’ love and appreciation for the fans.

그건 어둠 속 내 산소와 빛
In the darkness, they are my oxygen and light,

내가 나이게 하는 것들의 힘
the power of those that make me be me

넘어져도 다시 일어나 scream
Even if I fall, I get back up, scream 

 

넘어져도 다시 일어나 scream
Even if I fall, I get back up, scream 

언제나 우린 그랬으니
Because that’s what we always did

설령 내 무릎이 땅에 닿을지언정
Even if my knees drop to the ground,

파묻히지 않는 이상
unless they are buried under it,

그저 그런 해프닝쯤 될 거란 걸
it will be just an ordinary happening

Win no matter what

Win no matter what

Win no matter what

네가 뭐라던 누가 뭐라던
Whatever you say, whatever whoever says

I don’t give a uhh

I don’t give a uhh

I don’t give a uhh

 

Hey na na na

미치지 않으려면 미쳐야 해
To remain sane, one must go insane

Hey na na na

나를 다 던져 이 두 쪽 세상에
I throw all of myself into this two-sided world

Hey na na na

Can’t hold me down cuz you know I’m a fighter

제 발로 들어온 아름다운 감옥
The beautiful prison I walked into on my own 

Find me and I’m gonna live with ya

 

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

(Eh-oh)

올라타봐 bring the pain oh yeah
Ride on, bring the pain oh yeah

Rain be pourin’

Sky keep fallin’

Everyday oh na na na

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

 

나의 고통이 있는 곳에
Where my pain lies,

내가 숨 쉬게 하소서
let me breathe
Note: ~하소서 (please do ~) is a very formally polite style that was traditionally used when addressing a king or a queen and is now used only in historical dramas and religious text. When it comes to 숨 쉬다 (to breathe), the official translations in music video subtitles have these two lines as “Where my pain lies, let me take a breath.” But, 숨 쉬게 하소서 (please let me breathe) is not about pausing or a one-time activity of breathing in and out. It is closer to a statement — a declaration that he is determined to exist where his pain lies, accepting the pain instead of being afraid of and running away from it.

My everythin’

My blood and tears

Got no fears

I’m singin’ ohhhhh

Oh I’m takin’ over

You should know yeah

Can’t hold me down cuz you know I’m a fighter

깜깜한 심연 속 기꺼이 잠겨
I gladly sink into the pitch-black abyss

Find me and I’m gonna bleed with ya

 

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

(Eh-oh)

올라타봐 bring the pain oh yeah
Ride on, bring the pain oh yeah

Rain be pourin’

Sky keep fallin’

Everyday oh na na na

(Eh-oh)

Find me and I’m gonna bleed with ya

 

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah

(Eh-oh)

올라타봐 bring the pain oh yeah
Ride on, bring the pain oh yeah

All that I know

is just goin’ on & on & on & on

(Eh-oh)

가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
Bring it, bring the pain oh yeah
