"Stuck In The Moment" as written by Ray Romulus, August Rigo, Jonathan Yip, Jeremy Reeves and Justin Bieber....
With you,
With you,
I wish we had another time,
I wish we had another place

Now Romeo and Juliet,
Bet they never felt the way we felt,
Bonnie and Clyde,
Never had to hide like,
We do,
We do

You and I both know it can't work,
It's all fun and games,
'Til someone gets hurt,
And I don't,
I won't let that be you

Now you don't wanna let go,
And I don't wanna let you know,
There might be something real between us two, who knew?
Now we don't wanna fall but,
We're tripping in our hearts and it's reckless and clumsy,
'Cause I know you can't love me here

I wish we had another time,
I wish we had another place,
But everything we had is stuck in the moment,
And there's nothing my heart can do (can do),
To fight with time and space 'cause,
I'm still stuck in the moment with you

See like Adam and Eve,
Tragedy was our destiny,
Like Sunny and Cher,
I don't care,
I got you baby

See we both,
Fightin' every inch of our fiber,
'Cause ain't no way,
It's gonna end right but,
We are both too foolish to stop

Now you don't wanna let go,
And I don't wanna let you know,
That there might be something real between us two, who knew?
And we don't wanna fall but,
We're tripping in our hearts and it's reckless and clumsy,
And I know you can't love me here

I wish we had another time,
I wish we had another place,
But everything we had is stuck in the moment 'cause,
I'm still stuck in the moment with you

See like,
Just because this cold cold world saying we can't be,
Baby, we both have the right to disagree,
And I ain't with it,
And I don't wanna be so old and gray,
Reminiscin' 'bout these better days,
But convention's telling us to let go,
So we'll never know

I wish we had another time,
I wish we had another place,
'Cause everything we did,
And everything we have is stuck in the moment,
Yeah

I wish we had another time,
I wish we had another place,
But everything we have is stuck in the moment,
And there's nothing my heart can do,
(Nothing my heart can do),
To fight with time and space 'cause, (and space)
I'm still stuck in the moment with you,
Yeah,

    General Commentthis is sad..im not really a justin bieber fan,
    but some of his songs are good,
    to me this song means, there relationship would be frowned upon by there friends, family, peers, but they had such strong feelings for each other. they broke up or whatever , but they still love each other very much, but they cant be together like said in the line, "like adam & eve, tradgey was our destiny" ,
    everything they had is stuck in the moment, meaning...he still thinks of her & the memories they had, hes still living in that moment but doesnt know whether to let go of her or not.

    My InterpretationInstead of that straight forward relationship business, where it's frowned upon.
    I see it to be as Justin is already in a relationship with somebody, but has fell in love with this girl he is describing.

    Here I believe he's realising that it's wrong what he's doing saying:
    "You and I both know it can't work, It's all fun and games till, someone gets hurt, and I don't,
    I won't let that be you.
    I think he's saying that he loves having her to be with and spend time with but doesn't want her to get hurt at the end of it all.

    But later in the song it's revealed she's becomed attatched to him and shares similar feelings for him:
    Now you don't wanna let go, and I don't wanna let you know, that there might be something real between us two, who knew?
    Realising that they've both fallen for eachother...

    Here I believe that Beiber is saying how reckless it is to fall in love with someone else:
    Now we don't wanna fall but, we're tripping in our hearts and it's reckless and clumsy, cause I know you can't love me.
    Saying she can't be with him becuase he's already with someone, most likely regretting kidding themselves in the first place - 'wreckless and clumsy'.

    This continues throughout the song, I think it's him wishing he could have been with her.
    I wish we had another time, I wish we had another place, cause everything we did and everything we have
    Is stuck in the moment.
    I think that's bascially saying that if he wasn't taken, and had the same situation, just in 'another time and another place', things would have worked out for them. But they're just stuck living in this world of theirs and are relluctant to let what they shared go.

    Just my two cents anyway, it's how it related to me.

    My Opinionwith this song....i wasn't just stumbling upon it and found it and then thought..."wow! I can really relate to this song. I love it"
    no. a crush from a different town had told me to listen to this song because it described his feelings better than the way he could....but basically after i listened to it (and loved it) he said that he fell in love with me when we were together and when we went back to our own towns, all he could do was reminisce..if i spelled that right. he wished we could see each other again. but he said it wouldn't be the same because things had changed.....all of his friends thought i was just another girl to deflower and then he would move on...but he didn't want to cause me the embarrassment or hassle of trying to make something work because he liked me and he didn't want me to get hurt. so he basically cut off all contact with me....but he mailed me a letter the other day saying...."I'm still stuck in the moment with you"
    <3
    so yeah, this song is on my daily playlist :)

    General CommentSo.. my, now, ex girlfriend broke up with me for a week ago. And she sheared this song on facebook. I ofc listened to it and I can agree with you guys what it could mean. But my question is.. is there still a shot for me? Or is it REALLY over? What do you think of that?
    Please, comment. And sorry for bad english!

    My InterpretationThis is about a taboo relationship ... a cousin? ....a sister? Some intimate relation had to certainly occur as he pines to relive it in another place and time where it is possible. Conventional society is clearly against it.

    I don't know if this song is about Justin as I noticed that it is multi-credited: Jonathan James Yip, Jeremy L Reeves, Ray Romulus, and Justin Bieber. It could be about something of any of these contributors.

    I mentioned family taboos because they seem to be the most extreme that today's society would still most frown upon. If it is less severe, it is possible that it is anything from a secret gay relationship to some unacceptable relation between people of different races or religions or social backgrounds. I also mentioned the family thing because I can relate personally!
