Oh, yeah (oh, yeah)

Twenty-four 누구보다 더 빨리 어른이 된 것만 같아
My life has been a movie all the time
해 뜨는 곳으로 달렸어 every single night
누구의 내일에 가봤던 것도 같아

온 세상이 너무 컸던 그 소년
Keep on runnin' errday, mic 잡아들어
Friends ridin' subway, I'll be in the airplane mode
전 세계를 rock on, I made my own Lotto
But 너무 빠른 건지 놓쳐버린 흔적이
Don't know what to do with
Am I livin' this right?
왜 나만 다른 시공간 속인 걸까?

Oh, I can't call ya (oh)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of BTS's song "My Time" talk about the struggles of a young man who feels like he has grown up too quickly. The song reflects on the rush of life and the desire to find personal time amidst the chaos. The lyricist highlights these struggles in the first verse by saying "I feel like I've become an adult faster than anyone else; my life has been like a movie all the time." The comparison of the singer's life to a movie is telling of the surreal and fast-paced reality he has been thrown into. The song continues with "I ran towards where the sun rises every night, and it felt like I had been to everyone's tomorrow." This line implies that the singer has seen so much in his short life that he feels like he has experienced everything there is to experience.


The chorus expresses the singer's frustration with not having enough time for those he cares for. He says "I can't call you, I can't hold you, I can't touch you. Can I someday find my time?" This line indicates an almost desperate desire for personal time amidst the chaos. With the lyrics "I don't gotta know where I go; Even if it's opposite of the sun," the singer tunes out society's expectations and norms, indicating his willingness to deviate from the mold and discover his own path.


Overall, "My Time" is a beautiful piece that touches on the common human desire to have space for oneself, to live life outside of the fast-paced rhythm without being bogged down by society's expectations.

“ and yes you know, yes you know”
Is the saddest lyric in this song for me.
Because I feel like he’s talking about his friends and family that are used to his absence in their personal lives as they know that he is always busy.
Jungkook is aware of it himself and it must dwell on his mind a lot. He probably feels guilty that he doesn’t have enough time for them but I’m sure they understand it’s not his fault.

His friends and family are moving on with their lives (“Everybody walk too fast”) and turning into different people while he’s still stuck in yesterday remembering who they used to be.
The fact that it’s repeated also makes me sadder because it happens time after time, year after year.

I imagine
“Sorry, I can’t visit today mum.”
“Yes, I know...”

“Sorry guys, I can’t hangout today.”
“Yes, we know...”

“Sorry big brother, I can’t play today.”
“Yes, I know...”

"I'm a little kid grown up not knowing it"

I actually feel bad for Jungkook. Imagine being a trainee at 13 and become a member of a group at *15. That must've been hard for him. He didn't experienced the pleasure of being a child/teen and just jumped into the harder and mature level. I love him so much so it hurts me if I l'll see him being pressured and suffering from this judgmental world so people should know that they are humans too that needs privacy and gets tired. So please let's protect him/them at all costs.

@ylns7171

He debut at 15 but yeah it's a little sad however he still managed to grow to be a humble and all-rounded person

@robin-xf7so

taekook's hoe he became official with the team as a 15yr. i really feel so bad for him, it must’ve been hard for all of the members, since how the industry strips everyone under it from relationships and privacy. it’s unfair honestly, they deserve to live as well without interruption from fans recording them.

@LY-js7ff

so you‘re saying he is childish and immature or what ??!

@ylns7171

@@LY-js7ff think she/he is trying to say that jk has a some kid traits cause they weren't grown out like other people's would've been but it makes him fun because he grew up in a dufferent lifestyle 😐

@felixfelicis3945

I thought Jungkook is 22, 21 universally?

When he changed the “I can’t “ to “I will” I literally smiled. Poor bunny. May he live peacefully and happily.
