For you I could pretend like

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

For you I could pretend like

Why you sad? I donโ€™t know. I donโ€™t know.
Smile, say โ€˜I love youโ€™
Look at me, even I gave up on myself
Even you canโ€™t understand me

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

Jimin:
Woo I dunno I dunno I dunno why
Woo even I even I donโ€™t know myself
