Justin Bieber – Love Yourself lyrics

[Verse 1]
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


[Pre-Chorus]
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


[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
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


[Chorus]
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

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

[Chorus]
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

    I think that this song "Love Yourself" was about the break up between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. The whole album "Purpose" was about Selena Gomez. Selena is in love with herself, and Justin's mother does not like her. She may be in love with Justin, but she is always being mean to him. She is only interested when he is seen with another woman, He loves her with all of his heart, but she's only interested in using him for publicity and for the possessions he owns.

    I think it is definitely about Selena Gomez! She even has a tattoo that's says "love yourself" in Arabic so clearly it was just a song about how she used him. This is my favorite song but Justin said it like it was only her fault for the relationship ending.

    Story behind: They had a break up cause the boy's mother doesn't like the girl. But the girl keep on reaching the boy in his phone, so he advised the girl to do something to forget him and stop getting in touch with him cause he is moving on and advised the girl to love herself by not always trying to get in touch with him. That by doing so it makes the girl so cheap. So she must Love herself, her dignity, her elf being.

    Alot of people see things as "oh poor Selena" as if Justin hurt her when they broke up, but this song is him telling the world he's got hurt to because he was used but he's not letting that stop him from moving forward. My favorite line has to be "my mama don't like you and she likes everyone" because it shows how she obviously wasn't his cup of tea or whatever you want to call it because his Mom saw the danger Selena was to him causing her not to like Selena.

    I think it means you should go and f**k yourself instead of you should go and love yourself. I mean, the guy is a really nice human being. What he has done for the society is noteworthy. Selena shouldnt f**k around with people like him. Had she stuck around, this song wouldn't have been about the bitch who stole everything from him.
