Honestly (English Translation) Lyrics by RIIZE

[Verse 1: Sohee, Wonbin]
No matter how hard I try, my heart won’t beat
No matter how hard I try, it’s still the same
Rather, I think it went well.
I’m giving my love to myself
Because I will change
I did my best so I have no regrets
You are not in my priorities anymore
It’s clear now
You gave me the alarm
I will say goodbye to you who were my everything

[Pre-Chorus: Eunseok, Sohee]
You were my angel
Forget the days when we thought it would last forever
Such a cruel way to end us
The breakup trigger that has now been pulled

[Chorus: Wonbin, Anton, Eunseok]
Honestly, all I need is me
I’m freer without you free
Honestly, I know you didn’t see
Now, I can be what I just wanna be
I just wanna be, be

[Verse 2: Sungchan, Sohee, Shotaro]
I know you tryna reach me through my friends
You know, I won’t fool you twice
This is the end, oh
No more excuses for being a mistake
And I don’t know why you gotta deny your feelings (Feelings)
One of these days, I know you gonna get that healing (Healing)
Stop bothering me anymore
Overthinking and thinking (Thinking)
Why you slipping and slipping skip it? (Slipping, skip it)
Only our beautiful memories keep it (No, no, no)

[Pre-Chorus: Anton, Wonbin]
You were my angel
Erase everything about me that was full of you (erase everything)
Such a cruel way to end us (End us)
There is no turning back, the breakup is a trigger (Trigger)

[Chorus: Anton, Eunseok, Wonbin]
Honestly, all I need is me
I’m freer without you free (Ooh)
Honestly, I know you didn’t see (Know you didn’t)
Now I can be what I just wanna be
I just wanna be
I wanna be, I wanna be
I wanna be, whatever’s got to be, oh

[Bridge: Sohee, Shotaro, Anton, Wonbin, *Eunseok*]
All I need is me, yeah
I’ll be good for me, yeah (Ooh)
I finally realized it thanks to you
You were the king of my city
I’ve been burning my town (Ooh)
My two eyes that only shined on you
Now I look farther away
*You are no longer in my world*
‘Cause girl, I gotta tell you honestly

[Chorus: Sohee, Sungchan, Anton, Eunseok, *Wonbin*]
Honestly, all I need is me
I’m free without you, free (free, free)
Honestly, I know you didn’t see (No)
Now, I can be what I just wanna be
I just wanna be, feel so me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, yeah, woah
I just wanna be, feel so me, *woah*
