Nal nohajwo
Sum swil su issge
I seuchyeo ganeun
Punggyeong sog-e jayuropge

Let me go
So I can breathe
Freely in the passing scenery

Nolaehadeut na-egedo
Deullyeojugo sip-eun geu mal
I love myself
I trust myself
Naegen eobs-eossdeon geu mal

Like a song, I also
Want to hear those words
I love myself
I trust myself
Words I never had

Nal gadwojwo
Gip-eun i bam-e
Jamdeulji anh-eul
Oeloumman namgyeodun chae

Imprison me
In this deep night
Leaving behind only
The loneliness that won’t sleep

Nolaehadeut na-egedo
Deullyeojugo sip-eun geu mal
I love myself
I trust myself
Naegen eobs-eossdeon

Like a song, I also
Want to hear those words
I love myself
I trust myself
Words I never had

Gil-eossdeon eodum-eul gyeondin naleul bwa
Ttodashi bami wado sumji anh-a
Nae gyeot-en naega iss-eo
Balgaol haneul geu wilo
Peojyeoganeun bich-i doeeo nan nal-ag-a

Look at me who endured the long darkness
Even if the night comes again, I won’t hide
I am by my side
Above the bright sky
Becoming the spreading light, I fly away

Eonjenga-neun na-egedo
Deullyeojul suman issdamyeon
I love myself
I trust myself
Gieoghajullae

Someday, if I could
Tell myself too
I love myself
I trust myself
Will you remember?

I trust myself
Gieoghajwo

I trust myself
Remember

I love myself
I trust myself
Naleul an-ajul geu mal

I love myself
I trust myself
Those words that will embrace me
