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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
