As BTS attracts a wider audience of English speakers, Billboard aims to help new fans understand the meaning behind the boy band's Korean lyrics.

On the single "Blood Sweat & Tears" from the group's 2016 album, Wings, tropical house blends with moombahton production as members Jimin, Jungkook, Suga, RM, J-Hope, V and Jin declare their willingness to throw everything on the line for love, success or whatever their aim might be. Thematically, the guys blend sentiments of temptation with an often carnal willingness to sacrifice everything.   

"Kiss me, I don’t care if it hurts/ Hurry up and choke me/ So I can’t get hurt any more/ Baby, I don’t care if I get drunk, I’ll drink you/ Deep into my throat, a whiskey called you," they sing on one verse.   

Suga, RM and J-Hope co-wrote the lyrics, which profess, "It doesn't matter if it hurts/ Make it tighter so I can't escape/ Hold me tight and shake me/ So I'll be unconscious/ Kiss me on the lip, lips/ This is a secret between the two of us/ I am addicted to the prison that is you."  

Here are the original lyrics to "Blood Sweat & Tears," followed by the English translation:

BTS, Blood Sweat & Tears:
 
내 피 땀 눈물
내 마지막 춤을
다 가져가 가
내 피 땀 눈물
내 차가운 숨을
다 가져가 가
내 피 땀 눈물

내 피 땀 눈물도
내 몸 마음 영혼도
너의 것인 걸 잘 알고 있어
이건 나를 벌받게 할 주문

Peaches and cream
Sweeter than sweet
Chocolate cheeks
And chocolate wings
But 너의 날개는 악마의 것
너의 그 sweet 앞엔 bitter bitter

Kiss me 아파도 돼
어서 날 조여줘
더 이상 아플 수도 없게
Baby 취해도 돼 이제 널 들이켜
목 깊숙이 너란 위스키

내 피 땀 눈물
내 마지막 춤을
다 가져가 가
내 피 땀 눈물
내 차가운 숨을
다 가져가 가

원해 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이

아파도 돼 날 묶어줘
내가 도망칠 수 없게
꽉 쥐고 날 흔들어줘
내가 정신 못 차리게
Kiss me on the lips lips
둘만의 비밀
너란 감옥에 중독돼 깊이
니가 아닌 다른 사람 섬기지 못해
알면서도 삼켜버린
독이 든 성배

내 피 땀 눈물
내 마지막 춤을
다 가져가 가
내 피 땀 눈물
내 차가운 숨을
다 가져가 가

원해 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이
원해 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이 많이

나를 부드럽게 죽여줘
너의 손길로 눈 감겨줘
어차피 거부할 수조차 없어
더는 도망갈 수조차 없어
니가 너무 달콤해 너무 달콤해
너무 달콤해서
 
내 피 땀 눈물
내 피 땀 눈물


BTS, Blood Sweat & Tears (English Translation):

My blood, sweat and tears
My last dance
Take it all
My blood, sweat and tears
My cold breath
Take it all
My blood, sweat and tears

Even my blood, sweat and tears
Even my body, heart and soul
I know well that I am yours
This is a spell that will punish me

Peaches and cream
Sweeter than sweet
Chocolate cheeks
And chocolate wings
But your wings are the devil's
Before your sweetness there is bitter, bitter

Kiss me, I don’t care if it hurts
Hurry up and choke me
So I can’t get hurt any more
Baby, I don’t care if I get drunk, I’ll drink you 
Deep into my throat, a whiskey called you

My blood, sweat and tears
My last dance
Take it all
My blood, sweat and tears
My cold breath
Take it all

I want you a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot

It doesn't matter if it hurts
Make it tighter so I can't escape
Hold me tight and shake me
So I'll be unconscious
Kiss me on the lip, lips
This is a secret between the two of us
I am addicted to the prison that is you
I cannot worship anyone else besides you
I knowingly drank 
From the poisoned chalice

My blood, sweat and tears
My last dance
Take it all
My blood, sweat and tears
My cold breath
Take it all

I want you a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot
I want you a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot

Kill me softly
Close my eyes with your caress
I can't reject it anyway
I can't even escape anymore
You are too sweet, too sweet
Because you are too sweet

My blood, sweat and tears
My blood, sweat and tears
