"What Do You Mean?" as written by Justin Bieber, Jason Boyd and Mason Levy....
What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh
When you sometimes say yes
But you sometimes say no
What do you mean?
Hey, yeah
When you don't want me to move
But you tell me to go
What do you mean?
Oh
What do you mean?
Said you're running out of time
What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh
What do you mean?
Better make up your mind
What do you mean?

You're so indecisive, what I'm saying
Trying to catch the beat, make up your heart
Don't know if you're happy or complaining
Don't want for us to end
Where do I start?
First you wanna go to the left and you want to turn right (ooh)
Wanna argue all day, hangin' out all night (oh)
First you're up, then you're down and in between
Oh, I really want to know

What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh
When you sometimes say yes
But you sometimes say no
What do you mean?
Hey, yeah
When you don't want me to move
But you tell me to go
What do you mean?
Oh, what do you mean?
Said you're running out of time
What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh
What do you mean?
Better make up your mind
What do you mean?

You're overprotective when I'm leaving
Trying to compromise but I can't win
You wanna make a point but you keep preaching
You had me from the start, won't let this end
First you wanna go to the left, then you want to turn right
Wanna argue all day, hangin' out all night
First you're up, then you're down and in between
Oh, I really wanna know

What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh
When you sometimes say yes
But you sometimes say no
What do you mean?
Hey, yeah
When you don't want me to move
But you tell me to go
What do you mean?

I want to know, oh
Oh, what do you mean?
Said you're running out of time
What do you mean?
(Oh, baby)
Oh, oh, oh
What do you mean?
Better make up your mind
What do you mean?
Oh, oh, oh (this is ours baby, yeah)
When you sometimes say yes
But you sometimes say no
What do you mean? (you're so confusing baby)
Hey, yeah
When you don't want me to move
But you tell me to go
What do you mean?
(Be more straightforward)
Oh, what do you mean? (give it back, back, back)
Said you're running out of time
What do you mean? (give it back, back, back)
Oh, oh, oh
What do you mean?
Better make up your mind
What do you mean?

    My InterpretationIt's about a woman who is indecisive to Justin and how he is misinterpreting her nod as a yes when she means no.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is completely relaying upon the troubles, misunderstandings and complications that develop in a relationship and how the girl in the relationship is messing with the guy's heart and causing her indecision to cause confusion, therefore causing the repetitive chorus of "What Do You Mean"? This song, although it has relatively simple lyrics, has a lot to say about love and relationships.
