BTS has a lot to love, and it’s simple to fall in love with the group’s superb music, spectacular choreographies, and charming members.
People connect with BTS’ music on a deeply personal level: their songs are about following goals, questioning norms, and staying true to yourself in the face of uncertainty, which is one of the reasons they’ve grown so successful.
Because the members overcome difficulty to attain their goals, they have a special talent for writing lyrics that encourage people worldwide to do the same.

Here are some of our favorite BTS lyrics that may inspire you:
1. “No More Dream”
“What is the you that you dreamed of?
Who do you see in the mirror? I gotta say
Go on your path
Even if you live for a day
Put away your weakness.”
BTS’s debut single boldly challenges us to look in the mirror and ask ourselves who we want to be. The words dare us to fully live by discovering our way rather than simply doing what is expected or what we are told.
“I worked all night, every day
While you were out clubbing.”
You just must put forth the effort if you truly desire anything. Instead of wasting their leisure time, the members put it to good use by creating music and perfecting choreographies – and it paid off!
“I believe in myself;
My back hurts to let my wings sprout.”
This verse stands out in a song full of beautiful imagery about letting go of concerns and trusting in your path.
Sacrifice and effort are heavyweights to bear, but they are the beginnings of developing wings that will someday grow into wings that will allow you to soar to new heights!
4. “Boyz With Fun”
“I’m becoming weird.
You can’t go to the peak by being normal, baby.”
Just a friendly reminder that part of what propelled BTS to new heights of fame was their willingness to let their eccentric, often bizarre personalities show — and we should all do the same!
5. “Intro: The Most Beautiful Moment In Life”
“What am I doin’ with my life?
This moment won’t ever come again
I’m asking myself again, am I happy right now?”
We should all benefit from asking ourselves these essential questions more frequently, as suggested by Suga’s contemplative intro music.
It serves as an excellent reminder to not waste our time, but rather to strive to make every moment count. (In case you were wondering, Suga’s answer to the question is the following lyric: “The answer is already there: I’m pleased.”)
6. “Never Mind”
“If you think you’re going to crash, step on the pedal harder.
Never mind, never mind,
Even if it’s a road of thorns, we still run.”
“Never Mind,” another stunning rap entrance by Suga, sends a compelling message about not allowing anxieties to hold you back.
Suga advises us to ignore the risk of falling or being harmed and instead to speed up, run through the thorns, and seek our aspirations!
“Follow your dream like a breaker.
Even if it breaks down,
Don’t ever run backwards, never.
Because the dawn right before the sun rises is the darkest.”
BTS gets honest about the anguish and misery that can come with pursuing your aspirations in “Tomorrow.”
Despite these challenges, the lyrics encourage us to keep our eyes on the prize, for, just as daybreak follows the darkest portion of the night, breakthroughs frequently follow the most difficult of trials!
8. “Spring Day”
“The morning will come again.
No darkness, no season is eternal.”
The lyrics from “Spring Day” continue the idea of nature from “Tomorrow,” providing a quiet yet immensely encouraging reminder that no matter how dark things become, the morning will always come in the end.
We will arrive at our own spring if we wait during the bitter winter of our trials.
9. “2! 3!”
“It’s alright, now count 1, 2, 3 and forget.
Erase all sad memories.
Hold each other’s hands and smile.”
This soothing track from the “Wings” album can instantly brighten your spirits if you’re feeling low.
Count to three, smile, and draw strength from the people around you rather than dwelling on your unhappiness.
10. “Magic Shop”
“I do believe your galaxy.
I want to listen to your melody.
The stars in your Milky Way,
How will they appear in your sky?
Don’t forget that I found you anyways.
At the end of my despair.
You’re the last reason.
For me who was standing at the edge of the cliff.
Finally, “Magic Shop” is the most recent BTS music in which the members show their love and admiration for ARMYs.
It’s a heartwarming reminder that inspiration is a two-way street: we inspire BTS with our energy, creativity, and melodies, just as they inspire us to explore our goals and live to our best potential. They are able to motivate us to believe in ourselves because we believe in them.
