As Long As You Love Me



Y'all probably already know our feelings about this title-borrowing tune by Justin Bieber (seriously, dude, BSB did it first!), but since it's blowing up the charts & all, it's time for "As Long As You Love Me" to get #deCODED. This epic love story is about to get broken down lyrically, so have a look and see if you agree with our definitions!

I'm under pressure
Seven billion people in the world trying to fit in


Justin's feeling the pressure from the world as he grows up, just like everybody else! So he is human after all!

Keep it together
Smile on your face even though your heart is frowning


As a celebrity, or even as a normal person, you have to keep a smile on your face even though you might be feeling upset. Justin knows this!

But hey now, you know girl
We both know it's a cruel world
But I will take my chances


Even though JB's feeling like his world is crashing down, he's got a girl that inspires him to keep going.

As long as you love me
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke


Because he loves his girl so much, they could have absolutely nothing and he would still be happy. Just as long as she keeps loving him!

As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me


If she sticks by his side, HE can be her everything!

I'll be your soldier, fighting every second of the day for the change girl
You can be my Destiny's Child on a stinger


The Biebs is willing to fight for the right to be with his girl. Note the little reference to Destiny's Child.

So don't stress, don't cry, we don't need no wings to fly
Just take my hand


Bieber and his girl don't need to have wings to feel like they're flying: all they need is each other!

I don't know if this makes sense, but you're my hallelujah

Here comes Big Sean's verse! Sean's saying his girl is his savior: totally makes sense to us!

Give me a time and place, and I'll rendezvous, and I'll fly you to it
I'll beat ya there


Just tell Sean where and when, and he'll be there: before you! He loves his girl that much.

Girl you know I got you
Us, trust...
A couple of things I can't spell without you


He'll always have his girl, because he can't spell important words like "us" and "trust" without "you", aka the letter U!

Now we are on top of the world, 'cause that's just how we do
Used to tell me sky's the limit, now the sky's is our point of view


Since they're on top of the world, the sky is no longer the limit for them: it's where they're at in their relationship!

Man now we stepping out like wow (Oh God)
Camera's pointed shoot
Ask me what's my best side, I stand back and point at you


When they go out and the paparazzi stalks them, Big Sean says to capture his girl on film, because she's his best side!

You, you the one that I argue with, I feel like I need a new girl to be bothered
But the grass ain't always greener on the other side
It's green where you water it


Big Sean believes that, like a garden, putting time and effort into a relationship makes you grow as a couple. Cute!

So I know we got issues baby true true true
But I'd rather work on this with you
Than to go ahead and start with someone new
As long as you love me


He could just break up with his girl whenever they have issues, but instead they work on them together, and that's what makes them special.

What else could Justin's hit jam mean? Let us know in the comments!
