Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa
You know you love me, I know you care
Just shout whenever and I'll be there
You want my love, you want my heart
And we will never, ever, ever be apart

Are we an item? Girl, quit playin'
We're just friends, what are you sayin'
Said, "there's another," and looked right in my eyes
My first love broke my heart for the first time

And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine
Baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine

Oh, for you, I would have done whatever
And I just can't 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
I'm goin' down, down, down, down
And I just can't believe my first love won't be around

And I'm like baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine
Baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine

Luda, when I was thirteen, I had my first love
There was nobody that compared to my baby
And nobody came between us or one could ever come above
She had me goin' crazy
Oh, I was starstruck
She woke me up daily
Don't need no Starbucks
She made my heart pound
And skip a beat when I see her in the street and
At school on the playground
But I really wanna see her on the weekend
She know she got me dazin'
'Cause she was so amazin'
And now my heart is breakin'
But I just keep on sayin'

Baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine
Baby, baby, baby, oh
Like baby, baby, baby, no
Like baby, baby, baby, oh
I thought you'd always be mine, mine

I'm gone
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) now I'm all gone
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) now I'm all gone
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) now I'm all gone
(Gone, gone, gone, gone) I'm gone

    General CommentI don't get it. How can this song exist, and then there are thousands of great songs throughout history that have been nearly, if not completely, forgotten? What about all the great artists in history that actually played instruments?

    What happened to songwriters like John Lennon? What happened to clever rhymes and clever lyrics and lyrics filled with fun innuendos? Are we really doomed to "Baby (x9) Thought you'd always be mine" as every song's chorus? What has the songwriting (and music world, in general) gone to?

    My last questions: Do you really think people are going to remember Justin Bieber in 25 years time? Will he make Rolling Stone's 100 Best Artists list, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys and all the other great groups before "he" came along? Because we've remembered The Beatles for almost 50 years... Just making that a little point......

    General CommentSimple-This song has no meaning. It's just a teenager who hasn't yet hit puberty, sings like a laughing kookaboora (Spelling, sorry,), and has no talent whatsoever. This kid is fucking 15, hitting 16, maybe even 16 already. How the holy hearts does he know what love means? What a fucking loser.

    I'm also sick of all these fangirls bitching and saying "This song was wrote for me!!!!!11111". Dears, he doesn't even KNOW YOU. He's just another talentless lowlife/loser who plays his 'music' only for gaining money, not for putting time and effort into his so-called 'music'. This little poser doesn't give two shits about you, so fuck off and stop complaining. Sorry for my cussing, I just needed to get all this loserome out of my brain.

    Damn the music industry. DAMN IT ALL TO HELL!!!!!

    My InterpretationEveryone is being so shallow about this song! Don't you know Justin Bieber only keeps his "hot teen that all the 12 year-old girls want to sleep with" image so that he can hide the darker side of his lyrics, because he can not go without saying the things that hurt him deep inside, but he also does not want anyone to know about what he feels because they would never understand anyway?

    But I understand Justin. I understand it all.

    This song is about the internal struggle of a boy with the meaning and purpose of the "self", after coming to the conclusion that nothing but Nihilism explains all of the questions and concerns he has about life and the universe.

    The song takes an especially strong view on the idea of "ignorance is bliss" and Justin's constant references to his childhood are about how he wish he could go back to a time when he did not understand or know anything, and did not have to suffer from the realisation that all life is without purpose.

    The "baby, baby" is referring not to a girl, but actually to himself as a baby, and the "ahhs and oooohs" are pathetic attempts to replicate the sounds he used to make at that time, because out of his desperation he is willing to try anything to go back to when he did not understand anything. The "thought you'd always be mine" is of course about his innocence and how he thought he could stay ignorant and blissful forever.

    The verses are about how he slowly lost his ignorance over the years, as he learned that the things society teaches us can make us happy (possessions, money, love) made him happy at first "I'll buy you any ring", but slowly he finds they are meaningless "When I was 13, I had my first love, There was nobody that compared to my baby (once again referring to how there was nothing like the ignorant bliss he had as a child)", and as he keeps living his life he finds that materials and emotions have no value, and Justin struggles to hold onto things but he can not stop a nihilistic view from taking hold of him, "And I wanna play it cool/But I'm losin' you".

    Finally the last verse is a bit ambiguous. The "I'm gone" could be referring to the "self", i.e. with Nihilsm completely taking over him he now has no conception of himself, and so he is now an empty shell without anyone inside (therefore he in essence is gone, even if his body is still there), OR it could also mean that in his struggle with Nihilism the only way out he could think of was suicide, so the "I'm gone" could refer to his falling into the pit of despair and killing himself, but I don't know for sure. You'd have to ask Justin in person to find out...

    General CommentIt is about the 'war on terror' and the reactionary nature of western democratic
    governments. The 'wake me' bit is about the people killed by the guns that are caught
    in the middle of the war they never wanted held in their country. After the 'first love
    still around' bit it switches perspectives to the western government where they claim
    the real reason to start all this is to get oil.

    HAHA. As if.
    In 20 years who will know Justin Beiber?
    Absolutely No-one.
