Interlude : Shadow
BTS Lyrics


I wanna be a rap star (rap star)
I wanna be the top
I wanna be a rockstar
I want it all mine
I wanna be rich (rich)
I wanna be the king
I wanna go win
I wanna be

I wanna be a rap star (rap star)
I wanna be the top
I wanna be a rockstar
I want it all mine
I wanna be rich (rich)
I wanna be the king
I wanna be me
I want a big thing
Oh boy let me see
I got a big dream yeah

Woo 매일 설렜지 내가 어디까지 갈지
정신없이 달리다 보니 어느새 여기까지 왔지
Yeah 음 발밑의 그림자
고개 숙여보니 더 커졌잖아
도망쳐봤자 따라오는 저 빛과 비례하는 내 그림자
확 두려워 높게 나는 게 난 무섭지
아무도 말 안 해줬잖아
여기가 얼마나 외로운지 말야
나의 도약은 추락이 될 수 있단 걸
이제야 알겠어 때론 도망이 차선이란 걸 pause

사람들은 뭐 말하지 저 빛 속은 찬란하네
근데 내 그림자는 되려 더 커져 나를 삼켜 괴물이 돼
저 위로 위로 또 위로 위로
만 가다 보니 여긴 어지러워
더 위로 위로만 가네 싫어
(나 무사하길 빌어 빌어) 나의 바람대로 높게 날고 있는 순간
저 내리쬐는 빛에 더 커진 그림자
Please don't let me shine
Don't let me down
Don't let me fly
이제는 두려워

가장 밑바닥의 나를 마주하는 순간
공교롭게도 여긴 창공이잖아
Please don't let me shine
Don't let me down
Don't let me fly 이제는 무서워
Don't let me shine

웃어봐 (웃어봐) 뭘 망설여 (망설여)
네가 바라던 게 이런 게 아니었니 (아니었니)
울던가 (울던가) 뭐가 두려워 (뭐가 두려워)
네가 원하던 게 이런 게 아니었니
네가 바란 삶 네가 원한 삶
네가 택한 삶 후회 없이 다 이뤘지
거기에다 너는 big house, big cars, big rings
네가 원한 건 모든 걸 다 가졌지
근데 뭐가 문제야 즐겨
아님 놓던가 싫어?
그럼 달리던가 뭐 멈추던가
한 가지만 하라고 징징대지 말고
알려준 적 없다고? (yeah yeah)
정말 몰랐었냐고? (oh no)
네가 가진 만큼만 나는 가져갈게 그게 뭐든지 말야
때론 너의 휴식은 추락이 된단 걸
이제야 알겠니 매번 최선이 최선이란 걸

나의 바람대로 높게 날고 있는 순간
저 내리쬐는 빛에 더 커진 그림자
Please don't let me shine
Don't let me down
Don't let me fly
이제는 두려워

가장 밑바닥의 나를 마주하는 순간
공교롭게도 여긴 창공이잖아
Please don't let me shine
Don't let me down
Don't let me fly
이제는 무서워
Don't let me shine

I wanna be a rap star
I wanna be the top
I wanna be a rockstar
I want it all mine
I wanna be rich
I wanna be the king
I wanna go win
I wanna be

I wanna be a rap star
I wanna be the top
I wanna be a rockstar
I want it all mine
I wanna be rich
I wanna be the king
I wanna be me
I wanna be

그래 나는 너고 너는 나야 이젠 알겠니
그래 너는 나고 나는 너야 이젠 알겠지
우린 한 몸이고 또 때론 부딪히겠지
너는 절대 나를 떼어낼 순 없어 알겠지
Yeah yeah 떼어낼 수 없어 네가 뭐를 하던지
Yeah 인정하는 게 더 편안하겠지
Yeah 성공 혹은 실패 어디 있던지
Yeah 도망칠 수 없어 어딜 가던지

Yeah 나는 너고 너는 나야 알겠니 (알겠니)
너는 나고 나는 너야 알겠니 (알겠니)
우린 한 몸이고 부딪히겠지 (지겠지)
우린 너고 우린 나야 알겠니 (알겠니, 알겠니, 알겠니)

I am not going into theories here I am just talking about lyrics and mv to show what is the message Yoongi wants us to get:
There are two perspectives here.
1) YOONGI, a young kid with a dream: Yoongi wanted to gain fame from his music so he worked hard for that. Now that he's reached the pinnacle of his fame he has realized that it is very lonely up there and you know how they say that once you reach the top there's only one way down. So he is anxious and scared of falling, he wants to run away from the anxiety and the shadows of people wanting him/ BTS to fall. Now that he has achieved everything he wants to run away from being rich, a rockstar, a rapstar and all that.

2) SUGA: After 2:04 the song becomes aggressive as if it is Suga (his stage persona) talking to Yoongi, the real artist. He tells him that no matter what he does he can't run away from him. Hence the lyrics "I am you, you are me." etc That with success comes backlash and anxiety so you can't run away from all that now. It's like Yoongi is trying to accept the highs and lows of being Suga.


Also he talks about "We are one body sometimes we will clash" @ 2:26 he is fighting a battle within himself. Yoongi wanted to be a songwriter because he wasn't fond of attention but now he is one of the most famous hence scrutinized person in the world. So there's a war within what he wanted to be and what has become of him.


Like the m/v can be divided into 3 parts.
In the first part he is standing still talking about his dream then he starts running ( hard work)

In the second part once he stops running he finds himself on the stage @ 0:47 (his hard work payed off)

In the last part, he sees himself as everything he always wanted to be (all eyes on him) but now he just wants to be himself.
Again he comes to the conclusion that he can't escape that now. The fame is a part of him. Although he feels lonely he has to admit it that in order to gain something you have to lose something like @ 2:34 he says "you'll be at ease if you admit it too."

I am pretty sure he is thankful of ARMY and fame he got but I am glad he touched this aspect of fame and made people realize that fame is much more than just being a rockstar, a rapstar, a king and being rich.


Sorry guys I am a Literature Major I like interpreting things like this.



ARMY LOVES BTS

"Don't let me shine"
"Don't let me down"
"Don't let me fly"
"Now I'm scared"
: Is it just me who think that they are also scared that someday they will experience downfall ?
WE ARMYS:
"WE WILL ALWAYS LET YOU ALL SHINE"
"WE WILL NOT LET YOU ALL DOWN"
"WE WILL ALWAYS LET YOU FLY"
"NOW DON'T BE SCARED"

WE WILL FOREVER KEEP OUR PROMISE TO STAY WITH YOU OUR BANGTAN BOYS
#BORAHAE KINGS
