Awake
BTS Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

믿는 게 아냐
버텨보는 거야
할 수 있는 게
나 이것뿐이라서

머물고 싶어
더 꿈꾸고 싶어
그래도 말야
떠날 때가 됐는걸

Yeah it's my truth
It's my truth
온통 상처투성이겠지
But it's my fate (ooh ah)
It's my fate (ooh ah)
그래도 발버둥치고 싶어 (ooh)

Maybe I, I can never fly
저기 저 꽃잎들처럼
날갤 단 것처럼은 안 돼
Maybe I, I can't touch the sky
그래도 손 뻗고 싶어
달려보고 싶어 조금 더

이 어둠 속을 그냥 걷고 또 걷고 있어
행복했던 시간들이 내게 물었어
너 넌 정말 괜찮은 거냐고
Oh no, ayy
난 대답했어 아니 나는 너무 무서워
그래도 여섯 송이 꽃을 손에 꼭 쥐고
나 난 걷고 있을 뿐이라고
Oh no

But it's my fate
It's my fate (ooh ah)
그래도 발버둥치고 싶어 (ooh)

Maybe I, I can never fly
저기 저 꽃잎들처럼
날갤 단 것처럼은 안 돼 yeah
Maybe I, I can't touch the sky
그래도 손 뻗고 싶어
달려보고 싶어 조금 더

Wide awake, wide awake, wide awake
Don't cry (cry, cry)
Wide awake, wide awake, wide awake
No lie (no lie, no lie, no lie, yeah)
Wide awake, wide awake, wide awake
Don't cry (don't cry, don't cry)
Wide awake, wide awake, wide awake
No lie (lie, lie)

Maybe I, I can never fly
저기 저 꽃잎들처럼
날갤 단 것처럼은 안 돼 yeah
Maybe I, I can't touch the sky
그래도 손 뻗고 싶어




달려보고 싶어

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of BTS's song AWAKE convey a message of perseverance and accepting one's fate while still dreaming of reaching one's aspirations. The first verses express the struggle to believe in oneself, but still holding on and pushing forward despite that.

The chorus expresses a desire to reach for the sky, for something that may seem unattainable, but it still wants to try, even if it may end up bruised with scars.


The lyrics also suggest personal growth, as the singer of the song walks through the darkness, remembering happier moments and encounters someone who asks if they are alright. Despite the fear that the person feels, they hold tightly to the six flowers in their hand, signifying that love and faith can spur forward on difficult paths. The song concludes with a reiteration of the chorus and the desire to run even more towards the unattainable goal of touching the sky.


Overall, the lyrics of "AWAKE" portray a message of hope and resilience, acknowledging the difficulties but not letting go of one's dreams and aspirations.
