Worrying about Tomorrow, Today

There is a song that I’ve been listening to everyday for 8 months now. The name of the song is called “Tomorrow, Today” by JJ Project. I listen to it every day because the lyrics is very relatable and it comforts me.  The first time I listened to the song, I was not sure how I felt about it because it was not the type of song I listened to. However after reading some of the comments on the music video I decided to give it a second chance. Since it is Korean I turned on the caption, subtitle, and realized how relatable the song was. The song is about being lost, not knowing which road to take. I’m going to be 19 soon and I don’t know what I want for my future. Although there are many choices, I still can’t find one that is just right for me. I believe that there are many people who are going through the same thing as me .  So please take your time to listen to this song and do read the lyrics.

The translation of the song

“Why must I decide about tomorrow, today?
How should I know what tomorrow will bring?
My path and my dreams are fading

If I could turn back time and see my future
I would know which way to go
I would know where my path is

Why are you telling me to choose
When I only have my eyes half-open?
Somebody let me know, tell me which way to go
Cuz I don’t, don’t, don’t know

Again today, there are questions I don’t know
I’m trying to answer but I’m not confident
Is it this way or that way?
I’m afraid of my decision
With an anxious heart heart heart heart
I’m standing in front of the next next next choice
Between paths that I’ve never gone on before
How can I find my way?
I’m afraid, day by day

Even when I’m busy, they endlessly ask
I’m going forward but I keep looking back
What will I become at the end?
Will I regret it if I look back later on?

I clench my fists but I’m still timid
But I stop myself and try to have courage
So I can walk again but
Oh no, no, no

Again today, there are questions I don’t know
I’m trying to answer but I’m not confident
Is it this way or that way?
I’m afraid of my decision
With an anxious heart heart heart heart
I’m standing in front of the next next next choice
Between paths that I’ve never gone on before
How can I find my way?
I’m afraid, day by day

Across the disappearing day
I’m standing right here
As I let go of another day
That I can’t turn back

Again today, there are questions I don’t know
I’m trying to answer but I’m not confident
Is it this way or that way?
I’m afraid of my decision
With an anxious heart heart heart heart
I’m standing in front of the next next next choice
Between paths that I’ve never gone on before
How can I find my way?
I’m afraid, day by day

Tell me, tell me
So tell me which way to go
Which way to go
So tell me which way to go
Tell me, tell me
So tell me which way to go”.
