Justin Bieber's New Ballad "Nothing Like Us" Gets #deCODED

With the release of his stripped-down album Believe Acoustic, one set of lyrics from the record has been on everybody's lips: the words to "Nothing Like Us"! Believed to be about his romance with Selena Gomez, the Biebs offers us some slightly shocking insight into their relationship, which honestly seemed like rainbows and butterflies from the outside. Read on to see how we deCODED the lyrics to Justin Bieber's newest ballad...

Lately I've been thinking, thinking about what we had
And I know it was hard, it was all that we knew, yeah
Have you been drinking, to take all the pain away?
I wish that I could give you what you deserve

Ok, wait a second here...is Justin insinuating that Selena turned to alcohol when their relationship ended? Whether or not these lyrics are true, this verse explains that Justin still thinks of their time together and wishes he could have offered her more.

Cause nothing can ever, ever replace you
Nothing can make me feel like you do, yeah
You know there's no one, I can relate to
I know we won't find a love that's so true

Looks like Justin thinks he'll never find a love like Selena again. Don't worry, Justin, we have high hopes for you buddy!

There's nothing like us
There's nothing like you and me
Together through the storm
There's nothing like us
There's nothing like you and me together, oh

Aww, now we're starting to feel bad for Justin.
I gave you everything babe
Well, everything I had to give
Girl, why would you push me away? yeah

Now, it sounds like Justin is getting angry. He gave her as much as he possibly could have, so why did his heart get chucked to the curb?

Lost in confusion, like an illusion
You know I'm used to making your day
But that is the past now, we didn't last now

All of a sudden Selena wasn't around, it was like she disappeared. And JB feels useless without her. Who can he make happy now?

I guess that this is meant to be yeah
Tell me, was it worth it? We were so perfect
But baby I just want you to see
There's nothing like us

Justin comes to term with the familiar saying "whatever will be, will be". But he cries out one last plea to Selena: will she at least recognize the couple they once were?
