Love Yourself - Justin Bieber



The Experience: Cause if you like the way you look that much Oh baby you should go and love yourself... Justin Bieber hides a deep song about forgiveness behind a run of the mill dance video...



Music Video: While she's asleep, he lies awake, running through their "life" together - he's always there, trying to get her attention, but she never even looks at him. And when she wakes up, he's gone.

The Meaning of Love Yourself: It may be partly his fault - he admits that he's been so caught up in my job, didn't see what's going on. But the cold fact is that she doesn't love him. She can't, because she's far too caught up in herself. That's a harsh truth to face - we all get too caught up with ourselves, multiple times, every day, even when we should be caring about the people we love. And that selfishness can eventually drive away even the most persevering of lovers. Love Yourself might be a bit vulgar - the title implies that the only love selfish people will ever find is masturbation - but it cuts to the heart of what's wrong with so many relationships.

Ask yourself: How much selfishness is there in your relationships?

LYRICS:

[Music video voice-over by Justin Bieber: It's all based off of love. And love isn't do this for me and I'm gonna do this for you. That's not what love is. Love is just I'm gonna do this for you 'cause I wanna do this for you.]

For all the times that you rain on my parade
And all the clubs you get in using my name
You think you broke my heart, oh girl for goodness sake
You think I'm crying on my own, well I ain't

And I didn't wanna write a song cause I didn't want anyone thinking I still care
I don't but, you still hit my phone up
And baby I be movin' on and I think you should be somethin'
I don't wanna hold back, maybe you should know that
My mama don't like you and she likes everyone
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
And I've been so caught up in my job, didn't see what's going on
And now I know, I'm better sleeping on my own

Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I'm still holdin' on to somethin'
You should go and love yourself

But when you told me that you hated my friends
The only problem was with you and not them
And every time you told me my opinion was wrong
And tried to make me forget where I came from

And I didn't wanna write a song cause I didn't want anyone thinking I still care
I don't but, you still hit my phone up
And baby I be movin' on and I think you should be somethin'
I don't wanna hold back, maybe you should know that
My mama don't like you and she likes everyone
And I never like to admit that I was wrong
And I've been so caught up in my job, didn't see what's going on
And now I know, I'm better sleeping on my own

Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I'm still holdin' on to somethin'
You should go and love yourself

For all the times that you've made me feel small
I fell in love, now I feel nothin' at all
Had never felt so low when I was vulnerable
Was I a fool to let you break down my walls?

Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I'm still holdin' on to somethin'
You should go and love yourself
Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I'm still holdin' on to somethin'
You should go and love yourself
