In the hurry of the past
I forgot to make it last
Simple choices made too fast
By a die I didn't cast
I'm alarmed and I can't recover from
Crashing onto this island we've become

Words for fighting, words for fun
They've all melted into one
On the tip of every tongue
Like the new name for the sun
I'm alarmed and I can't recover from
Crashing onto this island we've become

Alright now, don't decide about that now
Oh how can you blame the only one to
Ever stay, ever stay, ever stay around and you would
Never say, never say all the harm's been done
And you were
All so gone oh so long, so long
Did you make it all wrong, so wrong
Did you wait oh so long, so long
Did you take it all wrong, so wrong

    Lyric CorrectionIt's "By a die I didn't cast", not "Vie or die I didn't count". He's referring to decisions made by fate or chance. "Vie or die I didn't count" is incoherent, and the lyric doesn't sound even remotely like that.

    General CommentYet another great BTS song about the hopeless, helpless and resigned feelings involved with watching a relationship wither.
