망설인다는 걸 알아 진심을 말해도

결국 다 흉터들로 돌아오니까

힘을 내란 뻔한 말은 하지 않을 거야

난 내 얘길 들려줄게


I know you're hesitating even while speaking the truth
Because eventually it all comes back as scars
I won't say obvious things like “have strength”
I will tell you my story

내가 뭐랬어
이길 거랬잖아

믿지 못했어 (정말) 

이길 수 있을까


What did I tell you
I told you we'd win
I couldn’t believe (really)
Could we win?

이 기적 아닌 기적을

우리가 만든 걸까

(No) 난 여기 있었고

니가 내게 다가와준 거야

This miracle that isn't a miracle,
were we the ones who made it?
(No) I was here
And you are the one who came to me

I do believe your galaxy¹

듣고 싶어 너의 멜로디

너의 은하수의 별들은 너의 하늘을 과연 어떻게 수놓을지

나의 절망 끝에

결국 내가 널 찾았음을 잊지마

넌 절벽 끝에 서 있던 내 마지막 이유야

Live 

 

I do believe your galaxy¹
I want to hear your melody
How will the stars of your galaxy embroider up your sky
At the end of my despair
I eventually found you, don't forget that
You are my last reason standing on the edge of a cliff

Live

내가² 나인 게 싫은 날 영영 사라지고 싶은 날

문을 하나 만들자 너의 맘 속에다

그 문을 열고 들어가면 이 곳이 기다릴 거야

믿어도 괜찮아 널 위로해줄 Magic Shop

The days you² hate being yourself, the days you want to disappear forever
Let's make a door inside your heart
On opening that door and entering, this place will be waiting for you
It's okay to believe the Magic Shop will comfort you

따뜻한 차 한 잔을 마시며

저 은하수를 올려다보며

넌 괜찮을 거야 oh 여긴 magic shop

While drinking a cup of warm tea
While looking up at the galaxy
You'll be fine oh this is Magic Shop

So show me
(I'll show you)
So show me
(I'll show you)
So show me
(I'll show you)
Show you, show you

필 땐 장미꽃처럼

흩날릴 땐 벚꽃처럼

질 땐 나팔꽃처럼

아름다운 그 순간처럼

Like a rose when it blooms
Like a cherry blossom when it scatters
Like a morning glory when it withers
Like those beautiful moments

Ay 항상 최고가 되고 싶어

Ay ay 그래서 조급했고 늘 초조했어

Ay ay 남들과 비교는 일상이 돼버렸고

무기였던 내 욕심은 되려 날 옥죄고 또 목줄이 됐어

Ay ay 그런데 말야 돌이켜보니 사실은 말야 나

최고가 되고 싶었던 것이 아닌 것만 같아


Ay I always want to become the best

Ay ay so I was impatient and restless
Ay ay comparing myself with others had become my daily life
My greed that once was a weapon, confined me and became a collar
Ay ay But upon looking back actually, I
I don't think I wanted to be the best

위로와 감동이 되고 싶었었던 나

그대의 슬픔 아픔 거둬가고 싶어 나

I wanted to be your comfort and touch your heart
I want to take away your sadness and your pain

내가² 나인 게 싫은 날 영영 사라지고 싶은 날

문을 하나 만들자 너의 맘 속에다

그 문을 열고 들어가면 이 곳이 기다릴 거야

믿어도 괜찮아 널 위로해줄 Magic Shop

The days you² hate being yourself, the days you want to disappear forever
Let's make a door inside your heart
On opening that door and entering, this place will be waiting for you
It's okay to believe the Magic Shop will comfort you

따뜻한 차 한 잔을 마시며

저 은하수를 올려다보며

넌 괜찮을 거야 oh 여긴 magic shop

While drinking a cup of warm tea
While looking up at the galaxy
You'll be fine oh this is Magic Shop

So show me
(I'll show you)
So show me
(I'll show you)
So show me
(I'll show you)
Show you, show you

나도 모든 게 다 두려웠다면 믿어줄래

모든 진심들이 남은 시간들이

너의 모든 해답은 니가 찾아낸 이 곳에

너의 은하수에 너의 마음 속에
 

If I told you I was afraid of everything too, would you believe me?
All the deep truths, all the time remaining
All of your answers are in this place that you found
In your galaxy, inside your heart

You gave me the best of me³

So you'll give you the best of you

날 찾아냈잖아 날 알아줬잖아
You found me, you recognised me

You gave me the best of me³

So you'll give you the best of you

넌 찾아낼 거야 네 안에 있는 galaxy
You will find it, the galaxy inside of you

So show me (I'll show you)
So show me (I'll show you)
So show me (I'll show you)
Show you, show you

BTS also had a fanmeeting on the theme of Magic Shop where they show Magic Shop as a place where one can receive healing, answers to their questions, and everything they need. It was also said that the door to the Magic Shop appears whenever one needs it.
