BTS “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” lyrics in English

[Intro: Jung Kook, JiminVJin]

Was it honestly the best?

‘Cause I just wanna see the next

Diligently passing through

All our yesterdays so beautifully

Yeah, the past was honestly the best

But my best is what comes next

I’m not playin’, nah for sure

Heading towards the day ’till I get winded

You and I, best moment is yet to come

Moment is yet to come, yeah

[Verse 1: V, Jung Kook]

Not sure since when

But they say we’re the best

Full of these unfamiliar names

Now they just feel heavy

We just loved music

We’re just running forward

Promise that we’ll keep on comin’ back for more

[Pre-Chorus: Jin, Jung Kook]

Somewhere deep inside your heart

There still lives a young boy

My-y-y-y moment is yet to come

Yet to come

[Chorus: SUGA, Vj-hopeJin, *RM*, **Jimin**]

Uh, do you have a dream, what’s at the end of that path?

Moment is yet to come, yeah

Uh, in the hush of night, we won’t stop moving

Yet to come

*Uh, we gonna touch the sky, ‘fore the day we die*

**Moment is yet to come, yeah**

*Uh, this is only the beginning, the best yet to come*

[Verse 2: SUGA, RM]

That uncomfortable title we were given one day

We are still abashed by being called the best

You know, I, I just love music

Nothing much has changed from back then

If nothing much has changed, probably

You’ll say it’s all a lie, yeah

There were a lot of changes but

I’m still the same, a new chapter

Every moment is my new best

Like I’m thirteen years old again

Spittin’ bars just like I did back then, huh

[Verse 3: j-hope, RMSUGA]

Still got a lot to learn

My life, got a lot to fulfill

If you’re askin’ me why

My heart’s tellin’ you

We ain’t about it

The world’s expectations

We ain’t about it

That step of being the best

We ain’t about it

Crowns and flowers, countless trophies

We ain’t about it

Dream and hope, and goin’ forward

We so about it

It’s back to square one after making one long turn, back to one

[Pre-Chorus: Jimin, V]

Somewhere deep inside your heart

There still lives a young boy

My-y-y-y moment is yet to come

Yet to come

[Chorus: SUGA, Jung Kookj-hopeJimin, *RM*, **Jin**]

Uh, do you have a dream? What’s at the end of that path?

Moment is yet to come, yeah

Uh, in the hush of night, we won’t stop moving

Yet to come

*Uh, we gonna touch the sky, ‘fore the day we die*

**Moment is yet to come, yeah**

*Uh, this is only the beginning, the best yet to come*

[Outro: Jin, Jung KookJiminV]

So was it honestly the best? (The best)

‘Cause I just wanna see the next (‘Cause I just wanna see the next, yeah)

Dazzlingly passing

Through the memories (Throughso beautifully (Beautifully)

Yeah, the past was honestly the best (The best)

But my best is what comes next (But my best is what comes next, yeah)

We’ll be singin’ till the morn

Heading towards (Towardsthe day more like ourselves (Like)

You and I, best moment is yet to come

BTS “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” lyrics in Korean

[Intro: Jung Kook, JiminVJin]

Was it honestly the best?

‘Cause I just wanna see the next

부지런히 지나온

어제들 속에 아름답게

Yeah, the past was honestly the best

But my best is what comes next

I’m not playin’, nah for sure

그날을 향해 숨이 벅차게

You and I, best moment is yet to come

Moment is yet to come, yeah

[Verse 1: V, Jung Kook]

다들 언제부턴가

말하네 우릴 최고라고

온통 없는 names

이젠 무겁기만

노래가 좋았다고

그저 달릴 뿐이라고

Promise that we’ll keep on comin’ back for more

[Pre-Chorus: Jin, Jung Kook]

너의 마음속 깊은 어딘가

여전한 소년이 있어

My-y-y-y moment is yet to come

Yet to come

[Chorus: SUGA, Vj-hopeJin, *RM*, **Jimin**]

Uh, 당신은 꿈꾸는가, 길의 끝은 무엇일까

Moment is yet to come, yeah

Uh, 모두가 숨죽인 , 우린 발을 멈추지 않아

Yet to come

*Uh, we gonna touch the sky, ‘fore the day we die*

**Moment is yet to come, yeah**

*Uh, 이제 시작이야, the best yet to come*

[Verse 2: SUGA, RM]

언젠가부터 붙은 불편한 수식어

최고란 말은 아직까지 낯간지러워

말야 음악이 좋은

여전히 그때와 다른 별로 없는걸

아마 다른 별로 없다면

You’ll say it’s all a lie, yeah

변화는 많았지만

변함은 없었다 , a new chapter

순간이 새로운 최선

지금 마치 열세

그때의 나처럼 뱉어, huh

[Verse 3: j-hope, RMSUGA]

아직도 배울게 많고

나의 인생 채울게 많아

이유를 물어본다면

심장이 말하잖아

We ain’t about it

세상의 기대

We ain’t about it

최고란 기준의 step

We ain’t about it

왕관과 , 수많은 트로피

We ain’t about it

Dream and hope, and goin’ forward

We so about it

긴긴 원을 돌아 결국 제자리back to one

[Pre-Chorus: Jimin, V]

너의 마음속 깊은 어딘가

여전한 소년이 있어

My-y-y-y moment is yet to come

Yet to come

[Chorus: SUGA, Jung Kookj-hopeJimin, *RM*, **Jin**]

Uh, 당신은 꿈꾸는가, 길의 끝은 무엇일까

Moment is yet to come, yeah

Uh, 모두가 숨죽인 , 우린 발을 멈추지 않아

Yet to come

*Uh, we gonna touch the sky, ‘fore the day we die*

**Moment is yet to come, yeah**

*Uh, 이제 시작이야, the best yet to come*

[Outro: Jin, Jung KookJiminV]

So was it honestly the best? (The best)

‘Cause I just wanna see the next (‘Cause I just wanna see the next, yeah)

눈부시게 지나온

기억들 속에 (속에 아름답게 (답게)

Yeah, the past was honestly the best (The best)

But my best is what comes next (But my best is what comes next, yeah)

We’ll be singin’ till the morn

그날을 향해 (향해 우리답게 (답게)

You and I, best moment is yet to come
