Paradise
by BTS

Album: Love Yourself: Tear (2018)
  • ENGLISH TRANSLATED LYRICS

    [Verse 1: Jungkook]
    Marathon marathon
    Life’s long so take it slow
    42.195
    The end is filled with a paradise of dreams

    [Pre-Chorus: Jimin, Jimin & Jungkook]
    But the real world is
    Different from what’s promised
    We need to run, we need to step on it
    If you shoot a flare
    You don’t have a destination
    There’s no sceneries at all
    Until your breath comes up to your chin
    You need to you need to

    [Chorus: V, Jungkook, Jin, Jimin]
    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

    [Verse 2: RM]
    We borrow dreams from others (Like a debt)
    We learn that we need to become great (Like a light)
    Your dream. Is actually a burden
    If having a future is the only dream existing
    Then what is the dream you had last night in your bed?
    It’s alright if the name of the dream is different
    Be it buying a laptop next month
    Or just eating and sleeping
    Not doing anything at all yet still having a lot of money
    Who says a dream must be something grand
    Just become anybody
    We deserve a life
    Whatever big or small, you are you after all

    [Pre-Chorus: Jimin, Jimin & Jungkook]
    But the real world is
    Different from what’s promised
    We need to run, we need to step on it
    If you shoot a flare
    You don’t have a destination
    There’s no sceneries at all
    Until your breath comes up to your chin
    You need to you need to

    [Chorus: V, Jungkook, Jin, Jimin]
    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

    [Verse 3: Suga]
    I don’t have a dream
    To dream is sometimes scary
    To just live like this
    To survive like this is a small dream to me
    To have a dream, to grasp a dream
    To breathe, is sometimes too much to handle
    Saying this person’s living like this, that person’s living like that
    The world’s hurling at me

    [Verse 4: J-Hope]
    Yeah
    The world doesn’t have the right to swear
    What is the way to dream a dream
    Since they never taught us that
    In the made up dream, sleep-talk of tears
    I wake you up from the nightmare for you
    Now let’s try to smile everyday, in that paradise

    [Chorus: V, Jimin]
    It’s alright to stop
    Now we don’t run without even knowing the destination
    It’s alright to not have a dream
    All the breaths you breathe are already in paradise

    [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
