Known for their global social influence, BTS has many inspiring songs that anyone can relate to on a personal level.

1. Tomorrow

Album:

Skool Luv Affair

Writers:

Suga, Slow Rabbit, Rap Monster, J-Hope

Producers:

Suga, Slow Rabbit


[Pre-Chorus]

Follow your dream like breaker

Even if it breaks down, oh better

Follow your dream like breaker

Even if it breaks down, don’t ever run backwards, never

[Chorus]

Because the dawn right before the sun rises is the darkest

Even in the far future, never forget the you of right now

Wherever you are right now, you’re just taking a break

Don’t give up, you know

Don’t get too far away, tomorrow

One of the earliest songs of BTS, Tomorrow encourages the youth to not give up no matter where they are right now. It is okay to stop and take a break but do not stop there. Our dreams and goals may seem out of reach for now, but do not lose hope yet. Even in the far future, it is important to remember where we came from and realize how much we have progressed.

[Bridge: J-Hope]

Tomorrow, keep walking, we’re too young to stop

Tomorrow, open the door, we see too much to shut the door

When the dark night passes, a bright morning will come

When tomorrow comes, the bright light will shine so don’t worry

This isn’t a stop but just a pause in your life for a break

Turn up your thumbs and press play so everyone can see

We may encounter failure in our lives, but believe that someday we will be able to move forward. Our defeat is not the end. Rise up again and do not give up yet.

2. Paradise

Album:

Love Yourself: Tear

Writers:

lophiile, MNEK, RM, Song Jae-kyung, SUGA, j-hope

Producers:

lophiile


[Chorus:]

It’s alright to stop

There’s no need to run without even knowing the reason

It’s alright to not have a dream

If you have moments where you feel happiness for a while

It’s alright to stop

Now we don’t run without knowing the destination

It’s alright to not have a dream

All the breaths you breathe are already in paradise

There are moments in our lives where we feel lost. Unable to know what choices we should make next, we feel too much pressure from the society that calls for us to achieve something bigger. This song reminds us that it is alright for us to pause for a moment, and realize that it is okay to achieve one goal at a time.

[Bridge: All]

Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend

Now stop that foolish race

Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend

All the breaths you breathe are already in paradise

Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend

You don’t need something like a dream that everyone dreams

Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend

Every language that makes you, is already in paradise

Not meeting society's expectations, it is okay for us to stop for a while now and not be involved in life's race. BTS comforts us telling that it is fine if we take small steps towards our goal, with our own pace, through our own timeline.

3. Love Myself

Album:

Love Yourself: Answer

Writers:

Pdogg, Jung Bobby, Jordan "DJ Swivel" Young, Candace Nicole Sosa, RM, SUGA, J-Hope, Ray Michael Djan, Ashton Foster, Conor Maynard

Producers:

Pdogg


[Verse 4:]

Yes, I have that beauty

Knowing that is going

On the path to loving myself

It’s what I need the most

I’m walking for myself

It’s an action needed for me

My attitude towards myself

That’s the happiness I need for me

I’ll show you what I got

I’m not afraid because it’s me

Love myself

[Pre-Chorus:]

From the very beginning

To the very end

There’s only one answer ey

Why do you keep trying to hide under your mask? (hey)

Even all the scars from your mistakes make up your constellation

Our mistakes, failures, regrets - it is time for us to accept ourselves. Love ourselves. Learn from our own mistakes and forgive ourselves. We need the time to realize that in order for us to choose happiness, we need to choose to learn to love ourselves.

[Outro: V, Jimin, Jungkook]

The me of yesterday, the me of today, the me of tomorrow (woah)

(I’m learning how to love myself)

With no exceptions, it’s all me

Everything is made by choice. We need to accept that whatever we choices we have made in the past, present and in the near future - we must learn to still love ourselves. It is because we possess the unique beauty that no one else has.

4. The Stars

Album:

Wake Up

Writers:

KM-MARKIT, Rap Monster, Suga, J-Hope, Pdogg

Producers:

KM-MARKIT

No matter how much I run, like a running machine

The scenery of this city won’t change

No matter how serious I become, as I become serious

The gear/cogwheel rewinds and rushes

BUT, EVER NEVER GIVE UP

The life is a big seesaw

There are up and downs, even in the natural world

Your hands are going to be chained one day

There is glory sometimes, but it also gets closed

This song tells us that life is like a seesaw, it has its ups and downs. It is up to us to focus on our goals and focus on the stars that we might see ahead. It may seem like that we aren't moving from where we are before, but learn to focus on what you want/need to achieve in life.

Even if you’re in the last place now, if you have a dream you’re not

So never give up, don’t think too much about it

Just by looking at it you won’t archive the big show

With your heart, little by little, along with your dream, the upcoming future’s success

Until that time don’t stop and let it go again!

Do not worry too much. "Am I making progress?", "Is it possible?" - just stop worrying for a while now. Enjoy the progress. Learn from your downfalls, and one by one you will be able to get closer to your desired destination.

5. Ephiphany

Album:

Love Yourself: Answer

Writers:

"hitman" bang, Slow Rabbit, Adora

Producers:

Slow Rabbit

[Chorus]

I’m the one I should love in this world

Shining me, precious soul of mine

I finally realized so I love me

Not so perfect but so beautiful

I’m the one I should love

To be able to give love fully, the first step that we need to take is to love ourselves. We are not perfect but we are still beautiful.

[Bridge]

I may be a bit blunt, I may lack some things

I may not have that shy glow around me

But this is me

My arms, my legs, my heart, my soul

No matter how imperfect we are, we are still shining. We need to learn how to love and take care of ourselves.

6. Path/Road

Album:

2 Cool 4 Skool

Writers:

RM, J-Hope, SUGA, "hitman" bang, Pdogg

Producers:

RM, J-Hope, SUGA, "hitman" bang, Pdogg

Some say art is long, life is short

But now for me, art is life

Life is sports

Just do it, uh

Life is indeed short but at the same time long. It is short for it is always too late before we realize that we have lesser time to undo what we have done. It is also long for it seems like we have a long way to go before we reach our dreams. It is time for us to accept that life is a sport that we just have to enjoy as we take it.

[Chorus:]

Would I have changed?

If I had chosen a different path

If I had stopped and looked back

Oh hey ya, hey ya

What will I get to see?

At the end of this road

Where you would be standing

Oh hey ya, hey ya

Every path that we take in our lives is a product of the choices that we made. This song encourages us to reflect on the choices that we made in our lives but at the same time, worry less as we take on the journey called life.

7. A Supplementary Story : You Never Walk Alone

Album:

Wings

Writers:

Pdogg, "Hitman" Bang, RM, SUGA, J-Hope, Supreme Boi

Producers:

Pdogg


Even though these wings sprouted from pain

They’re wings that face the light

Even if it’s hard and it hurts

If I can fly, I’m going to fly

Can you hold my hand

So that I won’t be afraid anymore?

Because if you and I are together

I can smile

No man is an island. Every time we feel pain and we are hurting, it is alright for us to ask for support from others, from our loved ones and remember that we are not alone in this world. The pain that we feel right now will be healed and we can learn from it to be able for us to achieve success someday.

Ayy I never walk alone

I can feel your hand that I’m holding, your warmth

Ayy you never walk alone

Feel me, you’re not alone either

Come on

Crawl crawl crawl crawl it

like it like that

Baby Walk walk walk walk it

like it like that

Baby run run run run it

like it like that

Baby fly fly fly fly it

like it like that

Crawl, walk, run, fly - is a metaphor in how we can get closer to our dreams. Work your way towards the top through hardwork. You may be crawling now through life but someday you will be able to fly.

8. Fire

Album:

The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever

Writers:

Pdogg, "Hitman" Bang, RM, Suga, Devine Channel

Producers:

Pdogg

[Chorus:]

Live however you want, it’s your life anyway

Stop trying, it’s okay to lose

Errbody say La la la la la (La la la la la)

Say La la la la la (La la la la la)

Throw your hands up, scream, burn it up

Burning up

We are human beings with free will. We are responsible for whatever happens to our own lives. So live it according to your own choices.

9. Sea

Album:

Love Yourself: Her

Writers:

Rap Monster, Slow Rabbit, Suga, J-Hope

Producers:

Rap Monster, Slow Rabbit, Suga, J-Hope

[Pre-Chorus: J-Hope]

I know, I know, my hardship right now

I know, I know, I’ll overcome

I know, I know, open me up

It’s the place I can rely on

Think positive, I’m swallowing my dry spit

Even if I’m nervous, even if I’m in a desert

I’m in the beautiful Namib Desert

Be optimistic. Allow yourself to be realistic and notice the hardships in your life but also always remember to take time to look at the brighter things in life.

[Chorus:]

Where there is hope, there is always hardship

Where there is hope, there is always hardship

Where there is hope, there is always hardship

Where there is hope, there is always hardship

Remember and never forget - where there is a hardship, there is always hope. Do not lose hope.

10. 21st Century Girl

Album:

Wings

Writers:

Pdogg, "Hitman" Bang, RM, Supreme Boi

Producers:

Pdogg

[Verse 1: RM]

You worth it you perfect

Deserve it just work it

You look elegant, elegant

Also you’re pretty, pretty

You shine, shine

You’re the truth and the reason

As you face and enjoy the journey in life - have confidence! Be confident in facing life struggles. Be confident in your own skin, in your own voice, and in everything that you are.

[Verse 3: Jungkook]

Don’t ever be scared

Whatever people say, you’re okay Alright

You are strong

You say yes or no yes or no

Do not be affected too much by what other people say. As long as you do what is right, you are beautiful and strong.
