"Backpack" as written by Adrian Eccleston, Nasri N Atweh, Justin ...
You said “I come in peace” so I took you home
I gave you food and I gave you clothes
I taught you how to move your feet when the rhythms on
Still you wanna leave ‘cause you feel alone

You don’t know what they’re like
If they know that you’re alive
They’re gonna try to take away the secrets of your planet's life
I know you must be upset, you lost your family in a wreck
But you gotta listen (listen, listen)

Don’t try to find your spaceship
It might be out there waiting
Stay in my backpack forever
Stay in my backpack forever
(You know I gotta find my spaceship,
My planet’s outside there waiting,
I can’t stay in your backpack forever)
Stay in your backpack, backpack, backpack

Before you came around I was in a rut
Didn’t have a friend, didn’t know what it was
You taught how to dream and how to love
You’re my best friend please listen to me

You don’t know what they’re like
If they know that you’re alive
They’re gonna try to take away the secrets of your planet's life
I know you must be upset, you lost your family in a wreck
But you gotta listen (listen, listen)

Don’t try to find your spaceship
It might be out there waiting
Stay in my backpack forever
Stay in my backpack forever
(You know I gotta find my spaceship,
My planet’s outside there waiting,
I can’t stay in your backpack forever)
Stay in your backpack, backpack, backpack

Uh
Greetings, I fell from the sky
I’m from a different world I use Lil Wayne as a disguise
And my flying saucer crashed, I’m the only one that survived
I’m only taking over this planet since I arrived
I’m in a backpack, I’m ducking Men in Black
Yeah, I’m an alien, my swag is outta this world
Different galaxy, they try to capture me
When I die they gonna name this planet after me
Wayne’s world (Wayne’s world, Wayne’s world)

Don’t try to find your spaceship
It might be out there waiting
Stay in my backpack forever
Stay in my backpack forever
(You know I gotta find my spaceship,
My planet’s outside there waiting,
I can’t stay in your backpack forever)
Stay in your backpack, backpack, backpack

In our planet we don't kill one another
We don't take love for granted
It's a gift from the mother
In your planets you are filled
With greed and false belief
We came here to bring you peace

    General CommentThe story he is trying to tell is
    similar to the movie "E.T" or
    what we call "Koi Mil Gaya"
    An Alien spaceship crashes ,
    and one of the species of the
    alien is in his home safe, hiding in his backpack '
    The alien made him a
    complete man , teaching him
    different aspects of life '
    and now the alien wants to
    go home , but justin is yelling , that no need to come
    out of the backpack , the
    humans are waitin outside
    "Don't try to find your
    spaceship They might be out
    there waiting Stay in my backpack forever
    Stay in my backpack
    forever".......
    The alien at last shares his
    feeling "In our planet we
    don't kill one another We don't take love for granted,
    it's a gift from the mother
    land, In your planet you are
    filled with greed and false
    belief We came here to bring
    you peace"

    General CommentI feel like the whole song is a metaphor. He's in a relationship that he wants to keep secret and away from the public eye.

    "You don't know what they're like , if they know that you're alive "
    He's talking about the paparazzi/ fans and how if they find out there will be a lot of hate etc and people bombarding her . And him being Justin Bieber knows exactly what this is like .

    "Stay in my backpack forever"
    He wants to keep it a secret forever.

    "I can't stay in your backpack forever"
    She's saying they can't hide forever.
