Stray Kids – GLOW

Korean/Hangul

We can rest but it’s still too early
We need to rest but it’s still so far away
The path we must go on
Even though we can’t see the end, we must go to the end
On this path without a map
It’s a maze, don’t wanna look back
Only looking forward as we run
Shining through the darkness

Deng deng deng
Why is an alarm ringing at this time
It’s time to get up, you need to get up
Feels like I just fell asleep, I just slept
I looked in the mirror, I look like a mess

We couldn’t even dry our hair and left
It’s a nice day but we’re cool kids
Looking like we got rained on
Anyone can see we’re one family, all afraid of being late

Everyone’s busy running, but one fell down
Thankfully, only a small cut on his knee
No problem in dancing, even if there is, hold it in
If you’re sleepy, cheat a little, slightly close your eyes

Practice goes harder once night comes
The maknae is whining, it’s sad but we’re hitting him hard
We wanna do my thing
Now the words, do nothing
Warns us and it stops us for a moment

Don’t know any other way
Only looked at one place for a long time
So where do you want me to go?
Look at the night sky, look at the stars
It’s like us, shining brighter in the darkness

Going to work in the morning, coming back the next morning
After two or three hours of sleep with the hyung behind me
I go to work
Even if the fluttering feeling
Of my first day disappeared
My passion still overflows, hope it reaches you through this rap

Everyone’s still busy running
But one fell down
Now instead of a small scar, emptiness remains
Days of silence flow
And then we all practice again

What will be the result of our practice?
Asking this to ourselves in the studio mirror every day
Like a test error, seems like there’s two answers
Top or the bottom, I don’t know where we’ll go

So much pressure behind the word debut
I can’t handle this dream sometimes even though my future is dark
The lights in the studio shine brighter
The lights in my eyes turn on too
So I can find paths that weren’t there before

Don’t know any other way
Only looked at one place for a long time
So where do you want me to go?
Look at the night sky, look at the stars
It’s like us, shining brighter in the darkness

We can rest but it’s still too early
We need to rest but it’s still so far away
The path we must go on
Even though we can’t see the end, we must go to the end
On this path without a map
It’s a maze, don’t wanna look back
Only looking forward as we run
Shining through the darkness

Don’t know any other way, Imma get it
For a long time, gotta go
Only looked at one place for a long time
So where do you want me to go?
Yeah, this is my last time, I won’t give up
Look at the night sky, Imma show it
Look at the bright stars, gotta glow
It’s like us, shining brighter in the darkness

Romanization

쉬어도 되지만 아직 일러
쉬어야 하지만 아직 멀어
우리가 가야 할 길
끝이 안 보여도 끝을 봐야 맞지
지도 하나 없이 위로 가는 길은
뒤도 돌아보기 싫은 미로
앞만 보고 달려
어둠 속을 환히 밝혀

댕댕댕
이 시간에 뭔 알람이 울려 얘얘얘
일어나야 할 시간 다 됐어 깨야 돼
방금 잔 것 같은데 진짜 방금 잤네
거울 보니 폐인 다됐네

머리도 못 말리고 나온 우리 저 멀리
화창한 날씨에 비 맞은
머리로 보이는 멋쟁이들
누가 봐도 한 식구지 지각엔 하나같이 겁쟁이들

뛰기에 다들 바빠 꼭 한 명이 뛰다 자빠지더라
다행히 무릎 위 작은 상처만 남아
춤추는 데 지장 없어 있다 해도 참아
졸음이 쏟아지면 반칙해 실눈 감아 잠을 잡아

연습은 오늘도 밤이 되면 더 빡 세게
막내 조는데 안쓰럽지만 딱밤 세게
We wanna do my thing
이제는 do nothing이라는
문구가 경고해서 잠시 말려주길 ey

딴 길은 몰라 나 오랫동안
한 곳만 바라보며
달려왔는데 어딜 가란 거야
밤하늘을 봐 환한 저 별들을 봐
어두울 때 더 빛나는 우리 모습 같아

아침에 출근해 하루 지난 아침에 퇴근해
뒤에 서 있는 형과 두 세시간
잔 후 출근해
두근대던 처음 왔던 때
설렘은 사라졌대도
열정은 여전히 넘쳐나 이 랩으로 전해

여전히 다 뛰기 바빠
근데 한 명이 뛰다 빠지더라
이번엔 작은 상처대신 공허함이 남더라 ey
며칠의 정적이 흐르고
다시 멀쩡하게 연습을 시작해

우리의 연습 결과가 어떨 지의 문제
연습실의 거울을 보면서 매일 묻네
오류 난 시험문제 답은 두 개인듯해
정상 아님 나락 둘 중 어디 가늠 못 해

데뷔라는 단어 큰 압박감에도
이 꿈은 주체 못 해 내 앞이 까매도
그럴수록 더 밝게 연습실의 불을 켜
동시에 눈에 불을 켜
없던 길도 찾게

딴 길은 몰라 나 오랫동안
한 곳만 바라보며
달려왔는데 어딜 가란 거야
밤하늘을 봐 환한 저 별들을 봐
어두울 때 더 빛나는 우리 모습 같아

쉬어도 되지만 아직 일러
쉬어야 하지만 아직 멀어
우리가 가야 할 길
끝이 안 보여도 끝을 봐야 맞지
지도 하나 없이 위로 가는 길은
뒤도 돌아보기 싫은 미로
앞만 보고 달려
어둠 속을 환히 밝혀

딴 길은 몰라 Imma get it
나 오랫동안 gotta go
한 곳만 바라보며
달려왔는데 어딜 가란 거야
Yeah, this is my last time 난 포기하지 않아
밤 하늘을 봐 Imma show it
환한 저 별들을 봐 gotta glow
어두울 때 더 빛나는 우리 모습 같아
