Reading Murakami makes me wanna go back to my olden days.
Hoping that someone at that moment would have said something like,
Jannah, follow your dream. Believe in your dream. Be strong. Listen to your heart. don't follow other's dream.
You know your aptitude and your own limit.
Go for what you've been dreaming of.
Do not bend to public opinion. Have your own opinion. Stand by your own belief. Don't let other's saying or judgment change your decisions. Don't let other people cloud your judgment on your future.
Coz your happiness is your right. Happiness is a choice.
Be free, and be happy.
But alas, you cannot ever go back to the past.... you realize the cold truth and being abruptly pulled away from your sunken dream.
they call me baepsae.....
ah stop nagging me to try,
you make me cringe from head to toe,
"Baepsae/ crow-tits means try-hard. It is also used to call someone who ruins themselves by trying to imitate/copy people who are better than them. It comes from the saying 뱁새가 황새 걸음을 걸으면 가랑이 가 찢어진다 meaning “If a crow-tit walks like a stork, it will tear its legs”
The song is trying to say that people are born into a set position in society, and if people like crow-tits(lower class) try to become like storks (upper class), they'll end up failing. BTS is trying to say that even if they were born as crow-tits, they will still work hard to overcome societal boundaries and try to make a society where people are equal and social standing isn't based on pre-set conditions that are unchangeable."
most of BTS songs are definitely my jams coz the lyrics come from their heart and they are based on the harsh reality of life. i've never been more touched than this. i found myself being able to relate to their songs. hats off to Rap Monster, Suga and J-Hope who had crafted such beautiful lyrics.
