널 위해서라면 난
슬퍼도 기쁜 척 할 수가 있었어
널 위해서라면 난

J-Hope:
우리만의 숲 너는 없었어
내가 왔던 Route 잊어버렸어
나도 내가 누구였는지도 잘 모르게 됐어
거울에다 지껄여봐 너는 대체 누구니

Why you sad? I don’t know 난 몰라
웃어봐 사랑해 말해봐
나를 봐 나조차도 버린 나
너조차 이해할 수 없는 나

Suga:
낯설다 하네 니가 좋아하던 나로 변한 내가
아니라 하네 예전에 니가 잘 알고 있던 내가
아니긴 뭐가 아냐 난 눈 멀었어
사랑은 뭐가 사랑 It’s all fake love

Jimin:

For you I could pretend like
I was happy when I was sad
For you I could pretend like
I was strong when I was hurt

I wish love was perfect as love itself
I wish all my weaknesses could be hidden
I grew a flower that can’t be bloomed
in a dream that can’t come true

The route I took, I forgot
I even became quite unsure of who I was
Try babbling into the mirror, who the heck are you

Why you sad? I don’t know. I don’t know.
Smile, say ‘I love you’
Look at me, even I gave up on myself
Even you can’t understand me

Suga:
You say I’m unfamiliar, changed into the one you used to like
You say I’m not myself which you knew well
No? What do you mean no. I’m blind
Love? What the heck is love. It’s all fake love

Jimin:
Woo I dunno I dunno I dunno why
Woo even I even I don’t know myself

Jin:
