“As Long AS You Love Me” by Justin Bieber (ft. Big Sean)
Justin Bieber is basically encouraging his lover in this song that they will overcome every challenge that comes their way as long as they stick together. The singer reassures his partner that he’ll be there to support and protect her so long as she makes him aware that she still loves him.
Bieber explains to his lover that although they may be going through tough times in their relationship due to the fact that the world is watching and pressuring them to be perfect (as in the case of pop stars), they must try to remain calm and survive.
He repeatedly promises to be everything she needs as it appears that the girl he’s in love with may be facing other challenges personally. Justin wants to protect her and solidify their love like that of Jay Z and Beyonce who he mentions in the song. In the end, he admits that despite the misunderstandings in their relationship, he loves her and prefers to stick with her than to start afresh with someone else.
