In the album interview as he was introducing this track, j-hope said, “In some sense, the name ‘j-hope’ is what made me who I am. As a regular human being Jung Hoseok, as Jung Hoseok who doesn’t have anything, would I have been still able to tell stories that I can tell as j-hope? Isn’t it extremely arrogant [to think that I would’ve been able to do so even if I had nothing]? I’ve been thinking about this constantly.”

수십 번 내게 질문을 해
Tens of times, I ask myself

Am I really like that?

희망, 긍정, 늘 웃는 얼굴의 상태
Hope, positivity, my ever-smiley face 

그저 할 수 있는 부분이라고 생각했어
I just thought these were things I could do

So my music, my speech, my feel

I made it myself

But, 의문이 들어
But, I start to have doubts 

제이홉에게 물어
I ask j-hope,

‘너라면 네가 말한 부분들을 지킬 수 있어?’
‘If it were you, would you be able to keep those words you said?’

어쩌면 내 자의가 아닌
Perhaps, it was not my own will

무수한 환경으로 탄생한 나
but those countless environmental factors that birthed me

Ay 당당히 비춰 너의 persona
Ay proudly shine a light on your persona

Hold up

.

(Can I do this?)

Let me think

(Can I do it?)

Even in this case

.

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no hope?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no dream?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no passion?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no vision?

How u doin’ bro?

요즘은 살 만한가 봐, 멋 부리고
It looks like you’re living a comfortable life these days, being all fancied up

너에게 풍파와 시련이란 건 뭘까
Challenges and trials, what would they even mean to you

온전한 계단으로만 올라왔기에
Because you’ve only climbed stairs that are intact and sturdy,

그건 모를 수도 있는 거야
it’s fair that you might not know what they mean

정작 넌 지금 다 가졌지
In reality, you have it all now

돈 명예 부, 네가 좋은 사람들의 following까지
Money, fame, wealth, and the following of people who like you 

나 자신을 사랑하고 희망을 가지라는 거
“Love yourself and have hope”

저 모든 게 박탈이 되고 밑바닥이어도
Even if you had all those things taken from you and found yourself at rock bottom, 

말할 수 있을까 넌? (I wish…)
would you still be able to say such words? (I wish…)

Hold up

.

(Can I do this?)

Let me think

(Can I do it?)

Even in this case

.

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no hope?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no dream?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no passion?

What if, what if, what if, what if

What if I have no vision?

.

And what if, what if, what if, what if,

What if I have no money?

What if, what if, what if, what if,

What if I have no house?

What if, what if, what if, what if,

What if I have no car?

What if, what if, what if, what if,

What if I have nothing

.

Can I do that shit?
