Justin Bieber has been one of the biggest pop stars in the world since his teens, although he has as many detractors as fans, most of which are young girls who swoon at his name. Most of Justin Bieber’s career has been filled with songs that were made for this young fan base and he never really delivered much in the way of meaningful or memorial lyrics. However, there were times where he was able to pull out some great lyrics and really capture a moment in words. Here is a look at Justin Bieber’s five best lyrics.
“Baby” was on the album My World 2.0 and was released in 2010. That was an upbeat song but features some heartbreaking lyrics that Bieber sang was about his first love, someone who broke his heart. Anyone who followed Bieber’s career could almost equate it to his relationship with Selena Gomez as well.
For you, I would have done whatever
And I just cant believe we ain’t together
And I wanna play it cool, but I’m losin’ you
I’ll buy you anything, I’ll buy you any ring
And I’m in pieces, baby fix me
And just shake me ’til you wake me from this bad dream
4. “As Long As You Love Me”
This song is from the Justin Bieber album Believe and is about trying to make it work with someone he loves. Bieber said that he wanted to work on more mature songs on this album, comparing it to Justin Timberlake.
We both know it’s a cruel world
But I will take my chances
As long as you love me
We could be starving
We could be homeless
We could be broke
As long as you love me
I’ll be your platinum
I’ll be your silver
I’ll be your gold
“Pray” is from the My Worlds: The Collection album and is very different for Justin Bieber. The lyrics here have Bieber thinking about others and a nice start to singing about social issues over boy-girl relationships.
I close my eyes and pray for the brokenhearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the ones not breathing
I pray for all the souls in need
I pray, can you give ’em one today?
I just can’t sleep tonight
Can someone tell me how to make a change?
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
2. “Never Say Never”
Justin Bieber named an entire tour after this song, which was made for the “Karate Kid” movie. The lyrics, which Bieber sings and actor Jaden Smith raps in, are really about the movie but Bieber made it all about himself as he created a music documentary under the same name.
See I never thought that I could walk through fire
I never thought that I could take the burn
I never had the strength to take it higher
Until I reached the point of no return
And there’s just no turning back
When your heart’s under attack
Gonna give everything I have
It’s my destiny
I will never say never
I will fight ’til forever
To make it right
1. “Die in Your Arms”
The Justin Bieber lyrics “Die in your arms” are not unique but Bieber really made it his own from his impressive Believe album.
If I could just die in your arms
I wouldn’t mind
‘Cause every time you touch me
I just die in your arms
Oh it feels so right
So baby, baby, please don’t stop, girl
Oh baby, I know lovin’ you ain’t easy
But it sure is worth a try
