'It's all gonna be okay!' is what an Army said the song meant. It is a message of hope for everyone out there. As the lyrics go, 'Like an echo in the forest, the day will come around as if nothing happened. Yeah, life goes on' What a beautiful line. It is filled with comfort. Did you know Alicia Keys sang this part too? 

They  just provided us with a warm hug, something we all needed this year. They mention countless moments where they couldn't move, but everything else was moving at its own pace. Spring came, time passed by, winter came, the rain didn't stop, although we're soaked.

How does life go on

These are just examples of how life goes on even during COVID-19. RM's bike was covered in dust because he couldn't ride it anymore. Suga's verse adorably mentions how the world has changed, but nothing has changed between them and their fans.

We think they were trying to thank Army for staying with them although they couldn't perform for them. This song keeps getting better and better. Don't you think the relationship between BTS and Army is the strongest bond on earth? They provide the best fan treatment!
Life goes on repeatedly mentions how there doesn't seem to be an end but also gives hope about the future. Jin's verse asks listeners to 'Close your eyes for a moment, hold my hand. To the future, let's run away.' We would love to run away to the future with them. Will you come along?

BTS' experience when the world stopped 

Finally, the boys also mention how they felt when the world stopped without a warning. They show a clip of V staring at the stadium they were supposed to perform at. They end the song in an empty stadium. The boys are all dressed up and performing, but they don't have their fans around.

It was difficult for BTS to get through this, but they still put out a message of hope for Army. 2021 could be a better year. We shouldn't give up so quickly. Did this song comfort you like it comforted Army? No wonder this masterpiece made it to Billboard Top 100.

If we could, we would give 'Life Goes On' a Grammy Award because the impact this song had on us and many fans are unbelievable. Tell us what you think in the comments!
