BTS (방탄소년단) - Life Goes On (English Translation)

LYRIC

[Intro]
I remember
I, I, I remember
Ah, ah

[Verse 1: Jung Kook, Jimin]
One day, the world stopped
Without any warning
Spring didn't know it had to wait
Showed up not even a minute late
Streets erased of footprints
I lie here, fallen to the ground
Time goes by on its own
Without a single apology, yeah

[Verse 2: RM]
It looks like it's going to rain again today
I'm soaked to the bone
The rain still won't stop (Hey)
It runs faster than that cloud of rain
Thought that would be enough
Guess I'm only human after all
It hurts so bad
This cold the damn world gave me (Woo)
Prompts me to press the dust-covered rewind
Lying on the ground, trying to dance off-beat
Let’s breath more warmly when winter comes

[Pre-Chorus: V, Jung Kook]
There's no end in sight
Is there a way out?
My feet won't move, oh
Close your eyes for a moment
Hold my hand
Let's run away to that future

[Chorus: Jung Kook & Jimin]
Like an echo in the forest
The day will come back around
As if nothing happened
Yeah, life goes on
Like an arrow in the blue sky
Another day flies by
On my pillow, on my table
Yeah, life goes on
Like this again

[Verse 3: SUGA]
I'll present myself to you with this song (Ayy)
People say the world has changed (No)
Mm-mm-mm-mm
But between you and me
Thankfully, nothing has changed

[Verse 4: j-hope, Jung Kook]
With the 'annyeong' that we start and finish the day
Let's thread tomorrow with today again (Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh-woah)
Stopped for now but don't hide in the shadow
The light will glow once again

[Pre-Chorus: V & Jung Kook, Jin]
There's no end in sight
Is there a way out?
My feet won't move, oh
Close your eyes for a moment (Close it)
Hold my hand (Hold it)
Let's run away to that future (Oh, oh, oh)

[Chorus: All, Jimin]
Like an echo in the forest
The day will come back around
As if nothing happened
Yeah, life goes on (Oh, woah)
Like an arrow in the blue sky
Another day flies by (Flies by)
On my pillow, on my table
Yeah, life goes on
Like this again

[Outro: Jimin & V]
I remember
I, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
I remember
Ah-ah, ah-ah
I remember
I, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
I remember
Ah-ah, ah-ah

About "BTS (방탄소년단) - Life Goes On (English Translation)"

This nostalgic song blurs alternative hip-hop sound with acoustic guitar and synth-pop. The lyrics offer comfort in a time when the world faces the pandemic.

The story behind the song begins from BTS declaring that “even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on and imparts a message of healing to fans and to the world.”

The theme “life goes on” was mentioned several times while BTS shared the process behind the album through vlogs over the months.

“Life goes on, let’s live on” was also the main message of their speech at the 75th UN General Assembly, given just a few months before the song release. The group appeared there as they’ve worked previously with UNICEF on the “LOVE MYSELF” campaign, this time giving the message of “let’s live on in a new world, breaking free from despair and supporting one another in warm solidarity.”

The song serves as the leading track and the second promotional single from BTS' fifth studio album, BE.

The single was announced by BigHit Entertainment via their official SNS and Weverse accounts on October 30, 2020.

The live debut stage took place during the American Music Awards on November 22, 2020.
