Video dedicated to Blue and Grey by BTS

I absolutely fell in love with this song off of BTS's latest album BE, released this month. I read through the lyrics several times to get the feel of this melody, and hope I captured the intent. Below are the Romanized and English versions, translated from Korean (Hangeul).

[V] Where is my angel
haruui kkeuteul deuriun
Someone come and save me, please
jichin haruui hansumppun

[Jungkook] saramdeureun da haengbokanga bwa
Can you look at me? Cuz I am blue & grey

English translation (interpretation may vary)

Where is my angel 
Draped over the end of the day? 
Someone come and save me, please 
Only the sighs of a tiring day 
Everyone looks happy 
Can you look at me? Cuz I am blue & grey 
The meaning of the tears reflected in the mirror
The colors hidden in my smile, blue & grey
I don’t know where it went wrong
A blue question mark in my head since I was a child 
Maybe that’s why I lived so fiercely 
But once I look back, once I stand still here 
That menacing shadow swallows me up 
The question mark, still blue 
Is it uneasiness, melancholy? 
Perhaps we really are animals of regret 
Or perhaps it’s that I was born out of loneliness 
I still don’t know, that menacing blue 
I hope I don’t get consumed by it, I will find the exit 

I just wanna be happier 
Melt me who is cold 
My hand reached out innumerable times 
A colourless echo 
Oh this ground feels so heavier
I am singing by myself 
I just wanna be happier 
Is even this too much to ask for? 
The beating of my quickening heart 
That I felt when I walked the cold winter streets 
Even now, I still feel it 

Don’t say it’s okay 
Because it’s not okay 
Please don’t leave me alone, it hurts too much...
The road that I always walk on, the light that always shines on me 
But for some reason, today it’s an unfamiliar scene 
Did I become too used to it or did it fall apart 
But it’s heavy, this piece of metal 
A grey rhinoceros coming towards me 
I stand with unfocused eyes, all alone 
This moment doesn’t seem like me 
I’m just not scared 

I don’t believe in the god that is certainty 
Colorful words make me nervous 
Wide gray areas put me at ease 
Here there is the grey of a million faces 
When it rains, it’s my world 
I dance on top of this city 
May the bright days have fog 
May we be together always on wet days 
And to all the dust here, 
I raise a toast 
I just wanna be happier 
Feel the heat from my hands 
I need you more because they are not warm 
Oh this ground feels so heavier 
I am singing by myself 
Far in the future, if I smile 
I’ll say, that’s how it used to be 

As I secretly take back the words that are floating in the air 
I fall asleep at dawn, good night...
