[Verse 1]
I’m sitting alone, only my mind wanders
Since when did you start hurting me?
See, you don’t even know

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re hurting me too cause you’re mine
I just want to blow your mind
We’re drifting apart again
“I don’t even feel it” That’s what I say
But to be honest that’s not it

[Chorus]
I want you to be your light, baby
You should be your light
So that you won’t be in pain
So you can smile
I want you to be your night, baby
You could be your night
I’ll be honest with you tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re hurting too ’cause you’re mine
I just want to blow your mind
We’re drifting apart again
“I don’t feel it” That’s what I say
But to be honest that’s not it

[Chorus]
I want you to be your light, baby
You should be your light
So that you won’t be in pain
So you can smile
I want you to be your night, baby
You could be your night
I’ll be honest with you tonight

[Bridge]
Now promise me, oh, oh
Several times a day, oh, oh
Though you feel alone, oh, oh
Don’t throw yourself away, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Let’s top for a moment
Pinkie promise me
Just promise me, oh, oh

BTS Star Jimin’s Single ‘Promise’ Becomes First To Hit 300M Streams on Soundcloud

BTS star Jimin has broken a world record with his solo single “Promise,” on the same week it was announced that his band is taking an “extended period of rest.”

The track, which was released by the K-pop superstar back on December 30, 2018, has surpassed 300 million streams on Soundcloud—making it the first single to achieve the feat on the platform in its entire history.

On December 7, the official Soundcloud account tweeted: “With an incredible 300M streams, Promise by #JIMIN is now the most streamed song on SoundCloud. Congratulations!!!!”

Soundcloud announced on January 3, 2019, that the single had surpassed the previous record set by Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” for the biggest 24-hour debut in history.

Jimin’s track, which was his first solo release (his second, “Christmas Love,” was released on December 24, 2020) spoke about how the track came to be during a livestream in January 2019.

“At first, it wasn’t meant to be a comforting song as it is now,” he said, per The Korea Herald. “Rather it was supposed to reprimand myself with lyrics like ‘What’s gotten into you’ and more harsh words. My thoughts at that time were dark and lyrics came out that way.”

“It’s my personality,” he went on. “I am often indecisive and am not true to myself. I hated that. I was so sick of myself not being able to say what I truly felt and thought.”

This achievement is the second Soundcloud record Jimin’s ‘Promose’ has broken thus far, after attaining the highest number of streams within 24 hours of its release on the platform, with 8.5million streams after its release on on December 31, 2018, per Soompi.

‘Promise’ was composed and written by Jimin himself, alongside fellow BTS member RM and in-house Big Hit Music producer and frequent BTS collaborator Slow Rabbit. Shortly after the song’s release, Jimin revealed that the lyrics were deeply personal for him.
