Young Forever

I'm out of breathe, the curtains coming down
My mind is cloudy, as I gasp for air
I wonder if I messed up today
I wonder how the fans expressions were
But I'm happy of who I've become
Someone that can make others scream for joy
I linger onto these feelings tightly
As I stand in this empty, hot stage

While I stand in this empty, hot stage
I fear the emptiness, I don't know why
Inside, my emotions are complicated
To live in a life-or-death crisis
I just pretend to be blunt about it
It's not my first time pretending, I'll be intimate with it
I try to hide it but I can't
As the empty stage gets cooler
I watch the seats get emptier
I'm comforting myself
I tell myself there is no perfect world

I'm slowly becoming emptier and emptier
This big round of applause can't be mine forever
I tell myself shamelessly
Raise your voice, more loudly
Even if they tell you there is no everlasting fan
I'm going to keep singing
At least just for today, I want it to be forever
I just want to be young forever

Forever we are young
Flying petals, swirling like the rain
Wandering through the maze of life
Forever we are young
Even if you fall and get hurt
I keep running towards my dream

Forever ever ever ever
(Dream, hope, keep going)
Forever ever ever ever
We are young
Forever ever ever ever
(Dream, hope, keep going)
Forever ever ever ever
We are young

It's 2 AM, and I'm not in my best condition, but I have so much things to say. A few hours ago, Bighit released the music video of Young Forever. I'm not so sure if this is going to be the title song for their upcoming album, because the music video is labelled as epilogue. There was not even a teaser, just a music video with absolutely breathtaking scenes and a song that is an epitome of perfection, dropped to surprise the fans.

I don't think any words could do any justice on how beautiful the song and the music video is. It portrayed so many emotions at once. The lyrics somehow explained how the boys feel about their life, and I believe the words are real. The words are so beautiful, as beautiful as the voices that sang it. 

Namjoon started off the song with his wonderful voice, continued by Yoongi singing. It's so delightful to hear Yoongi singing, because his voice is just love. And of course, Hoseok, Jungkook, Jin, Taehyung and Jimin's voices are beautiful too. There is just nothing wrong with the song and the music video, everything was executed perfectly.

I love the fact that they relate the scenes to I Need You and Run music videos. I didn't notice this at first, but when I saw Jimin's hair and hands were wet, I finally noticed the relation. You can see the feathers in Jungkook's scene, which matched his scene in Run, when he fought with Yoongi. And then there's Hoseok's pills too. The music video also started with the boys being stuck in a maze at first, and finally escaping together. The scene where they ran together, showing how happy they looked being together, combined with their voices singing forever we are young made me tear up because it is too beautiful. I really have no words to express what I am feeling now, there are just too many emotions going on.

This song makes me love Bangtan more, and I want to stay loving them for as long as I could. They are just so precious, and precious people deserve every love they can get from the world. Kim Seokjin, Kim Namjoon, Jung Hoseok, Min Yoongi, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung and Jeon Jungkook, thank you for existing. I love you ♡

Till next time ♡ Love, Aera

P.S: Just found out that Namjoon produced the song. I am so so so proud of him ♡♡♡
