BTS’s “Run BTS”: English Lyrics, Meaning, Inspiration


BTS’ anthology album “Proof” is finally here, having hit shelves and streaming platforms on June 10. The three-disc album is comprised of 48 tracks spanning BTS’s epic nine-year career. Although the release didn’t include as much new material as fans have grown accustomed to from most new BTS albums, the paired offering of releasing three original songs allowed fans to dig deeper into the lyrics than never before. So, between the looping release of the first single “Yet to Come,” the group’s dedicated ARMY also analyzes “Run BTS” and “For Youth.”

Fans are losing their minds about “Run BTS” (not to be confused with their variety show of the same name) especially not only because it’s a rhythmic rock/hip-hop hybrid track they can dance to , but also because its lyrics – which are a mix of Korean and English – reflect BTS’ beginnings as a group and run towards success, never losing their motivation. Check out the English lyric translation of “Run BTS” (via Genius) and read on to learn more about the message behind the lyrics.

A call from the company after school (Yeah, yeah)
Ah, I’m coming right away
Please don’t send me home

We seven homie, homies
Look good, we got it
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want, woah
If we live fast, die young

VERSE 2 (SUGA)
Alright, alright, let’s go
I was right, in the studio leaking rain in Nonhyeon-dong
Open a bottle of soju and talk about my struggles
If we succeed in the words we promised, everyone is dead
The reason for Bangtan’s success? I don’t know if there is something like that
We all run hard
No matter what, we just run
That’s the answer, ha-ha-ha

Good music, got ’em (got ’em)

Oh man, you’re not (you’re not)
Above those who run, above those who fly
Run Bangtan, let’s go

Go get it, go get it, go get it, go get it, run, run
If we live fast, die young

Listen to BTS’s “Run BTS”

What do BTS’s “Run BTS” lyrics mean?

BTS members RM, J-Hope, Jungkook, and SUGA took part in the writing process for “Run BTS,” which is why the message behind the song is so personal and fits perfectly with the overall theme of the song. album consisting of reflecting on the group’s almost decade. – long career.

The song kicks off with SUGA and Jungkook singing, “Nonhyeon, 100m, our place / A call from the company after school (Yes, yes) / Ah, I’m coming right away / Please don’t let me don’t send home,” a clear reminder of BTS’s humble pre-debut days when they lived together in a small dorm in Nonhyeon-dong working long, hard hours preparing for their debut. The opening line also establishes the constant worries the members felt about their uncertain future (obviously completely unaware that they were on the verge of becoming the biggest band in the world).

In the pre-chorus, Jungkook, Jimin, and V sing, “We from below / I caught you bae, bae / We kinda quick, We seven mate, mates / Look close, we got each other.” These lyrics seem to reflect how the members of BTS turned to each other as they experienced highs and lows climbing from the bottom of a saturated musical landscape toward success at breakneck speed. Despite what the naysayers were saying (“Tell me what you want,” they sing), the members were always there for each other, encouraging each other to keep going.

Ultimately, the lyrical guideline of “Run BTS” centers around BTS’ determination to never lose their minds and avoid negativity (no matter how naive or stupid it may seem to outsiders) with lines like “Don’t lose our minds”, “Run bulletproof, run, yeah you gotta run” and “With ignorant faith, just run, with your two legs.”

After nine years, BTS still hasn’t lost the spirit they cultivated in this small dorm in Nonhyeon-dong, and as the lyrics of “Run BTS” say, they will continue to run resiliently beyond all obstacles – as if bulletproof.
