“Your Eyes Tell” by BTS
This is a love song in which the addressee is the romantic interest of the singer. And fundamentally, what he is telling her throughout is to remain optimistic. For despite whatever challenges they may face in the present or whatever disappointments they experienced in the past, he wants the two of them to persevere and remain as a couple. Or another way of summarizing his emotions is that he loves her and wants her to be by his side (and vice versa) no matter what.
Now the listener may notice that the lyrics, as well as the title of this song, are based on the motif of vision. That is to say that the singer makes a number of metaphorical references to sight in relation to the aforementioned narrative. This is due to the fact that, as pointed out in the trivia section, “Your Eyes Tell” is actually part of a movie soundtrack, in fact being the title and theme song of the film. And said movie is of course a romance. Moreover, one of its main characters is actually going blind. And BTS’s Jungkook, who is recognized as the primary writer of the song, composed it directly based on the movie.
