BTS – FAKE LOVE (English Translation) lyrics

If it was for you
I could pretend that I was happy even if I was sad
If it was for you
I could pretend that I was strong even if I was hurt
Wishing that love is perfect as itself
Wishing all my weakness can be hidden
In a dream where nothing worked out for me
I raised a flower that couldn't bloom
I raised a flower that's couldn't bloom in a dream that can't come true

I'm so sick of this
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love
I'm so sorry but it's
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love


I wanna be a good man just for you
I gave the world just for you
I changed it all just for you
Now I dunno me, who are you?
A forest of just us, you were not there
I forgot the route that I came along
I became to not know who I even was
I try to talk to the mirror "who are you?"

If it was for you
I could pretend that I was happy even if I was sad
If it was for you
I could pretend that I was strong even if I was hurt
Wishing that love is perfect as itself
Wishing all my weakness is hidden
In a dream where nothing worked out for me
I raised a flower that's couldn't bloom
In a dream that can't come true

Love you so bad, Love you so bad
I craft a beautiful lie for
you
Love you so mad, Love you so mad
I erase myself
And try to become your
puppet
Love you so bad, Love you so bad
I craft a beautiful lie for you
Love you so mad, Love you so mad
I erase myself
And try to become your
puppet

I'm so sick of this
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love
I'm so sorry but it's
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love

Why you sad? I don’t know, I don’t know
Smile and say that you love
me
Look at me who even I myself dumped
Who even you cannot understand
You say that I feel like a stranger
Who changed into ‘I’ you used to like
You say that I am not
The ‘I’ you used to know well before
What do you mean by no?
I’m blind for you
How is this love? It’s all fake love

(Woo) I dunno, I dunno, I dunno why
(Woo) Even I, even I don’t know myself
(Woo) I just know, I just know, I just know why
Cuz its all Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love

Love you so bad, Love you so bad
I craft a beautiful lie for you
Love you so mad, Love you so mad
I erase myself
And try to become your puppet
Love you so bad, Love you so bad
I craft a beautiful lie for you
Love you so mad, Love you so mad
I erase myself
And try to become your puppet

I'm so sick of this
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love
I'm so sorry but it's
Fake Love, Fake Love, Fake Love

If it was for you
I could pretend that I was happy even if I was
sad
If it was for you
I could pretend that I was strong even if I was hurt
Wishing that love is perfect as itself
Wishing all my weakness is hidden
In a dream where nothing worked out for me
I raised a flower that's couldn't bloom
In a dream that can't come true

    These lyrics are a direct depiction of why this album is called "Love Yourself: Tear", meaning you don't always love just yourself. You can love other people and may end up getting hurt, hence why there's the word Tear in the album title. You can get hurt and cry and you can give up your happiness for someone else's if that's what makes you happy. Just know that you may get hurt. You may end up falling head over heels for someone who doesn't love you in return. In the end, you have yourself that you need to love. Or, if you decide that you love someone else more than yourself, don't get lost in them, don't cry. Don't shed a tear for someone who doesn't deserve it. I know this explanation is very repetitive, but it's true. I can't stress enough that bts is telling you that you must love yourself. Love yourself. Don't love anyone else more than you love yourself. And I know this is a long explanation for a single line, but that must be the reason they chose to show us this one in the song. It is a very powerful lyric that shows that you may get hurt if you love someone else before you love yourself. Just love yourself.

    I feel like the song is dedicated to ARMY's ...why i say so?bec in the first stanza it is like bts pretend to be happy even if they are sad but because they dont want to hurt armys so they pretend to be happy,,,in the second stanza they want to be a model to armys,so they created a world that armys and bts only exist because of pretending giving so much happines and love they forgot who they are...in fourth stanza bec they love armys so much they erase themselves and they become puppet,,They follow what armys always want...in fifth stanza,"Who changed into ‘I’ you used to like
    You say that I am not
    The ‘I’ you used to know well before
    What do you mean by no?",,is for the armys think bts did change,,so they question "How is this love? It’s all fake love
    " and for the chorus i dont need to explain it says it all,,,and in connection to there album love your self,,love your self,,armys think they really inlove to bts but its all infatuations,,,Im an army to so dont get me wrong

    This song represents a dark side of love,beautifully.It says that love is such a sting emotion either way that if you are lucky enough in love,your life is not less than heaven otherwise everyday is a mere regret.My hobby is to write poems if I were to describe it through my poetry I'd just say:FOR ALL THOSE TIMES HEARTS SHATTER,AN EYE IS FILLED WITH TEAR,A HEART IS FILLED WITH FEAR

    I also believe the lyrics could be representative to their relationship with ARMY, they wear the mask , not sure how much truth they can reveal without risking their livelihood , their fans that they love, and fear of fans being disappointed in their true selves.What they don't realize I believe is that their fan base is quite phenomenal, diverse and accepting and large enough to withstand whatever truths without collapsing.
    At some point you have to risk honesty in order to live for yourself and I would hope fans would not be so selfish as to deny this to them .
    Adoration, although wonderful , is not true love with substance , substance only comes with truth otherwise it's fake love.
