Life Goes On
BTS Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

어느 날 세상이 멈췄어
아무런 예고도 하나 없이
봄은 기다림을 몰라서
눈치 없이 와버렸어

발자국이 지워진 거리
여기 넘어져 있는 나
혼자 가네 시간이
미안해 말도 없이 yeah

오늘도 비가 내릴 것 같아
흠뻑 젖어버렸네
아직도 멈추질 않아
저 먹구름보다 빨리 달려가
그럼 될 줄 알았는데
나 겨우 사람인가 봐

몹시 아프네
세상이란 놈이 준 감기
덕분에 눌러보는 먼지 쌓인 되감기
넘어진 채 청하는 엇박자의 춤
겨울이 오면 내쉬자
더 뜨거운 숨 hah

끝이 보이지 않아
출구가 있긴 할까?
발이 떼지질 않아, 않아 oh
잠시 두 눈을 감아
여기 내 손을 잡아
저 미래로 달아나자

Like an echo in the forest
하루가 돌아오겠지
아무 일도 없단 듯이
Yeah, life goes on
Like an arrow in the blue sky
또 하루 더 날아가지
On my pillow, on my table
Yeah, life goes on
Like this again

이 음악을 빌려 너에게 나 전할게
사람들은 말해 세상이 다 변했대
Umm, umm, umm, umm
다행히도 우리 사이는
아직 여태 안 변했네

늘 하던 시작과 끝 안녕이란 말로
오늘과 내일을 또 함께 이어보자고 ooh-ah
멈춰있지만 어둠에 숨지 마
빛은 또 떠오르니깐

끝이 보이지 않아
출구가 있긴 할까?
발이 떼지질 않아, 않아 oh
잠시 두 눈을 감아
여기 내 손을 잡아
저 미래로 달아나자

Like an echo in the forest
하루가 돌아오겠지
아무 일도 없단 듯이
Yeah, life goes on
Like an arrow in the blue sky
또 하루 더 날아가지 (날아가지)
On my pillow, on my table
Yeah, life goes on
Like this again

I remember, ah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
I remember, ah, ah




I remember, ah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
I remember, ah, ah

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of BTS's "Life Goes On" speak about the COVID-19 pandemic and the changes it brought. The first verse describes the sudden halt of the world without any warning, and how spring arrived without the knowledge of waiting. The second verse talks about the struggles of living through this pandemic, with the empty streets and the loneliness of time. The chorus repeats the message of life continuing on, like an echo in the forest or an arrow in the blue sky. It talks about the uncertainty about what lies ahead, but also about holding hands and running towards the future.


The bridge talks about the song itself, as if lending music to the listener to comfort them in the changing world. The final chorus urges listeners to remember that the light always finds its way back, and that we don't have to hide in the darkness. The song's overall message is that life continues, and we must continue to be strong and move forward.
