The title of the song “Go Back” has been put as a wordplay with the Korean word “고백” which means ‘Confession’ in English. The Korean word is pronounced phonetically just as same as the English title.

Music Go Back(고백)
The music has been kept quite simple yet beautiful, with piano instrumentals, acoustic guitar beats, and drums.
As the title suggests, the song is about a bittersweet ‘Confession’. The artist has used both the English and Korean words in the title very impressively to convey his message.
He goes back in time recollecting the memories when he was still in 2nd year of middle school. His female friend had then confessed her feeling for him. However, he felt sorry for not reciprocating the same way. He wished to have had confessed at the beginning itself, that it would have been better for them to remain as just friends.
I was always in the front of the line till my 2nd year of middle school
What you just said were words I really wanted to hear
But I’m sorry
You were buried in this wide heart
And I thought of someone else
Did I really do something that bad?
I wasn’t a terrible person
But I think it would’ve been better
If we were just friends10CM_ Music Go Back(고백)
