숨을 참고서 나의 바다로 들어간다 간다

아름답고도 슬피 우는 나를 마주한다

저 어둠 속의 날 찾아가 말하고 싶어

오늘은 널 더 알고 싶다고 yeah

Holding my breath, I enter into my sea, I enter into it

I face myself who cries beautifully and sadly too

I want to go find that 'me' in that darkness and tell him

That I want to know you better today yeah

아직도 나는 내게 머물러있다

목소린 나오질 않고 맴돌고만 있다

저 까만 곳

잠기고 싶어 가보고 싶어

I’ll be there

오늘도 또 너의 주위를 맴돈다

I'm still staying with myself

Without my voice being able to come out, I'm just circling around

That pitch dark place

I want to be immersed in it, I want to go into it

I'll be there

Today, I circle around you again

 

너에게 갈수록 숨이 차오르고 넌 더 멀어지는 것 같아

더 깊은 바다로 들어간 건 아닐까 yeah

저 바닷속의 날 찾아가 말하고 싶어

오늘은 널 더 알고 싶다고 yeah

The closer I go to you, the more I'm out of breath and the father you seem

Wouldn't it be that you've gone deeper into the sea yeah

I want to go find that 'me' in the sea and tell him

That I want to know you better today yeah

 

아직도 나는 내게 머물러있다

목소린 나오질 않고 맴돌고만 있다

저 까만 곳

잠기고 싶어 가보고 싶어

I’ll be there

오늘도 이렇게 너의 곁으로 눈을 감는다
 

I'm still staying with myself

Without my voice being able to come out, I'm just circling around

That pitch dark place

I want to be immersed in it, I want to go into it

I'll be there

Today too, like this, I close my eyes by your side

Here is the translation of the note written by Kim Seokjin:

 

Hello, this is Jin.

 

Not too long ago, I remember saying this in the press conference.

"I don't want to share my sad emotions with the fans. It's because I only want to show them good things. But it's a different story when it comes to music. I don't want to share it through my daily life's actions but it seems okay if I show you through music."

 

Actually, recently I've had a huge burnout and I got to think a lot about myself. After getting #1 on Billboard Hot 100, I got a lot of congratulations from many people and wondered if it's okay for me to get those congratulations?

 

Wondered that there are many people who love music more than me and are better than me, is it okay for me to get this kind of happiness and congratulations?

I thought this way and on going even deeper, I was having a hard time and I think I wanted to put the feelings down. Many days went by while I also received advice about this and I talked with Bang PDnim about this and he said how about writing these emotions down as a song.

When I said: "I'm not confident if it'll be good and what if it doesn't turn out to be good, I've already come to a place where I can't do that (make a not good enough song)... Bang PDnim said those things aren't important... but if you do it, you'll definitely do well. Bang PDnim said: "If you end up making the song, I'll find someone right for you (for the song's production)."

 

That's how I met composer Gye Beomju hyung-nim (BUMZU) and talked with him about my current feelings and many other things.

 

He is a bright and positive person. BUMZU hyung-nim said he wanted to help me and helped me feel brighter again through the strength of positivity: "Let's try writing about a lot of (different types of) anxieties~ If it doesn't work out that well, then we can again start anew," he said.

Like that after talking about various things and made a track (melody/composition) from my current emotions itself, and Abyss was completed after I wrote down my emotions that I wanted to (express) through this track.

 

I want to say thank you to Gye Beomju hyung-nim once again.

The song isn't fitting for a birthday and is a bit depressing but it'd be a bit vague to release it otherwise so Abyss was released.

 

ARMYs, even if (the song) is lacking, please listen to it well.

 

ps. Thank you to our leader-nim who wrote the lyrics for the chorus.
