sUgA'S INtErlUde
Halsey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been trying all my life
To separate the time
In between the having it all and giving it up, yeah

Ay 내 머릿속엔 파란색만 가득한 이 방황
자기혐오들과 자만이 내 마음속에 살아 ay

꿈이 가득한 난 자라 ay 모든 꿈을 이뤘건만
꿈은 꿈으로만 간직하는 게 더 낫지라는 생각을 동시에 하며 살아가고 있지

Umm 내 도약은 추락이 아니기를
너의 신념 노력 믿음 욕심들은 추악이 아님임을 믿어

Ay 해가 뜨기 전 새벽은 무엇보다 어둡지만
네가 바란 별들은 어둠 속에서만 뜬다는 걸 절대 잊지 마

I've been trying all my life
To separate the time
In between the having it all and giving it up, yeah (hey)

I wonder what's in store
If I don't love it anymore (hey)
I'm stuck between the having it all and giving it up, yeah (hey)

(하) 가끔은 내가 걷고 있는 게 맞는지
하염없이 터널 끝을 향해 달리면 뭐가 또 있을런지

맞긴 한지 내가 바라던 미래와는 솔직히 다른 거지
상관없지 이제는 생존의 문제 어찌 됐든 상관없지

Yeah yeah 네가 바란 것들과는 다를지 몰라
네가 살아가는 것도 사랑하는 것도 변할지 몰라 (몰라)

That's true (that's true, that's true)
Yeah so are you gonna move?

꾸물거리기엔 우린 아직 젊고 어려 부딪혀보자고
So what you gonna do?

I've been trying all my life
To separate the time
In between the having it all and giving it up, yeah

I wonder what's in store




If I don't love it anymore (hey)
I'm stuck between the having it all and giving it up, yeah

Overall Meaning

In Halsey's sUgA'S INtErlUde, the artist explores the struggle of trying to balance success and happiness in life. The first part of the song, sung in English, talks about the difficulty of finding the right time to give up everything and start anew. The second part, in Korean, talks about the internal struggle of self-hatred and self-importance, which she keeps in her heart. Halsey sings in her English lyrics, "I've been trying all my life to separate the time / In between the having it all and giving it up", which could be interpreted as the challenges of maintaining both material and emotional success while trying to avoid succumbing to the pressures that come with it.


The Korean lyrics also touch on the importance of keeping your dreams alive but accepting the fact that not every dream can be accomplished. She sings, "Dreams are better kept as dream" and "Before dawn, the night is darker than anything / But never forget that the stars you wish for only appear in the dark." In the bridge, Halsey expresses wondering what could happen if she loses passion and drive for the things she once loved, and how she is "stuck between the having it all and giving it up." This reflects the constant internal struggle some people can have when they have achieved success, trying to keep both their personal gratification and their desires to continue working to maintain their achievements.


Overall, sUgA'S INtErlUde is a song that speaks to the difficulties of balancing the successful and the enjoyable parts of life, and the frustration that can come with feeling like you are between two opposite positions. The lyrics are a reminder that life is not always easy, and that we must find a way to keep ourselves motivated to strive for the things we want while also finding light in the dark times.

[Halsey:]
I've been trying all my life
To separate the time
In between the having it all
And giving it up, yeah

[SUGA:]
This wandering, with only blueness inside my head
Self-loathing and pride live in my heart
I was full of dreams, then I grew and made all of it come true
Yet keeping dreams as dreams would be better
I thought, while living at the same time
May my leap not be a fall
Your convictions, efforts, faith, and greeds
It is not of ugliness, I believe it, ey
The dawn before sunrise is darker than anything
But never forget the stars you hope for only appear in the dark

[Halsey:]
I been trying all my life
To separate the time
In between the having it all
And giving it up, yeah (Hey)
I wonder what's in store
If I don't love it anymore (Hey)
Step between the having it all
And giving it up, yeah (Hey)

[SUGA:]
Sometimes I don't know if I'm really walking
If I ceaselessly run towards the end of the tunnel
What else there would be?
Is it even right? It's honestly different to the future I had hoped for
It doesn't matter, now it's a matter of survival
However it goes, it doesn't matter, yeah yeah
It may be different to what you were hoping for
How you live on and how you love might change
That's true (That's true, that's true)
(Yeah) Yeah, so, are you gonna move?
We are too young to be hesitating, just run head-on onto it
So what you gonna do?

[Halsey:]
I been trying all my life
To separate the time (Hey)
In between the having it all
And giving it up, yeah (Hey)
I wonder what's in store
If I don't love it anymore (Hey)
Step between the having it all
And giving it up, yeah
