BTS Songs with Meaningful and Inspirational lyrics
1. No More Dream
“Go on your path
Even if you live for a day
Put away your weakness”
No More Dream is the debut song of BTS which asks what our dream is. The lyrics ask us to go on our own path instead of doing what others expect from us or what we are told.
“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 a pause in your life for a break”
The track encourages the youth not to give up. It says it is okay to stop and take a break but do not stop there. Even though our dreams and goals seems to be far and encounter failures in life , never give up and keep moving forward.
3. A Supplementary Story: You never walk alone
“Ayy you never walk alone
I can feel the warmth in your hand that I’m holding
Ayy you never walk alone
Feel me, you are not alone either
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. Whenever we feel pain and we are hurting, it’s ok to ask for help and support from our loved ones as we are not alone in this world. Even though we feel pain right now, it will be healed and learn from it.
4. So What
Stop standing and worrying
It’s no use
You may not have an answer but
You can start the fight”

5. Love myself
“Why do you keep wanting to hide inside your mask?
Even the scars from your mistakes make up your constellation”
The track urges us to love the “me” from yesterday, the “me” from today, and the “me” for tomorrow. 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. Learn from our own mistakes and forgive ourselves.
“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”
Another one of the most popular songs of BTS is Epiphany. The track conveys no matter how imperfect we are, we are unique in our own way and should be the one to love oneself. We are not perfect but we are still beautiful. The first step to love fully is to love ourselves first.

The day will come back around
As if nothing happened
Yeah life goes on”
