LIE
BTS Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

내게 말해
너의 달콤한 미소로 내게
내게 말해
속삭이듯 내 귓가에 말해
Don't be like a prey
(Be) Smooth like a like a snake
벗어나고 싶은데
내게서 떠나 떠나 떠나줘
내게서 떠나 떠나줘
뭐라도 나를 나를 구해줘
나를 구해줘

계속돼 도망쳐봐도
거짓 속에 빠져있어

Caught in a lie
순결했던 날 찾아줘
이 거짓 속에 헤어날 수 없어
내 웃음을 돌려놔줘

Caught in a lie
이 지옥에서 날 꺼내줘
이 고통에서 헤어날 수 없어
벌받는 나를 구해줘

나를 원해
길을 잃고 헤매이는
나를 원해
매일 그랬듯 나

I feel so far away
You always come my way
또 다시 반복돼 난

내게서 떠나 떠나 떠나줘
내게서 떠나 떠나줘
뭐라도 나를 나를 구해줘
나를 구해줘

계속돼 도망쳐봐도
거짓 속에 빠져있어

Caught in a lie
순결했던 날 찾아줘
이 거짓 속에 헤어날 수 없어
내 웃음을 돌려놔줘

Caught in a lie
이 지옥에서 날 꺼내줘
이 고통에서 헤어날 수 없어
벌받는 나를 구해줘

아직 나는 여전히 똑같은 나인데
예전과 똑같은 나는 여기 있는데
너무나 커져버린
거짓이 날 삼키려 해

Caught in a lie
순결했던 날 찾아줘
이 거짓 속에 헤어날 수 없어
내 웃음을 돌려놔줘

Caught in a lie
이 지옥에서 날 꺼내줘




이 고통에서 헤어날 수 없어
벌받는 나를 구해줘

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of BTS's song LIE seem to describe a person who is trapped in a web of lies that they have created for themselves. They ask the person they are speaking to, presumably a lover or a friend, to help them break free and find their way back to their true self. The lyrics mention a desire to escape and be rescued, possibly from the persona they have created, but it seems that they cannot do it on their own. The lines "Caught in a lie, 순결했던 날 찾아줘" ("Caught in a lie, find the innocent me") and "이 지옥에서 날 꺼내줘" ("Take me out of this hell") suggest that the person feels lost and trapped in their own creation.


The lyrics also mention a sense of repetition and stagnation. The lines "매일 그랬듯 나" ("I am like every day") and "또 다시 반복돼 난" ("I am repeating again") suggest that the person is stuck in a cycle that they cannot break out of. They may feel like they are not growing or improving and are constantly reliving the same mistakes.


Overall, the lyrics of LIE seem to be about the dangers of living a lie and the need to be true to oneself. It highlights that sometimes people need help to break free from their own illusions and to see things clearly.

Why is this me and my friend?! Like we are playing a game and out of nowhere she screams


"bTs PoWeR"
And to that I reply with



"iReUmEn JuNgKoOk"

I don't know if that's how to spell the romanization so if I'm incorrect, please tell me to I can edit the comment.



My Latest Obsession

@jellyvamp My mom does something similar. Out of nowhere she'll go:


"When I wake in my room, room!" (from 'Fire')
then, no matter what we're doing, we have to do the dance.
She loves J-Hope's verse in 'Fire'


I think my mom's bias is either Hobi or V, but she says she can't decide because she loves all of them.
I recently converted my sister as well and she went, "...I think Namjoon is my bias!"


I told them mine is Suga and I literally got a framed picture of him for Christmas 😂this is how you know your family is the best 🤣



EJM Love

BTS LOVE Reminds me of my sister and I...
Me: “Stop it!”
Both of us: “S.T.O.P I.T!!!”
And we laugh at it...
And then when I ask for the sugar...
Me: “Can you pass me the Suga?”
My sister: “Yes, I’ll pass you the Suga!”
And my parents did not know we did not pronounce the “r”
So it was a hidden joke on ourselves
