Justin Bieber – Never Say Never lyrics

[Featuring Jaden Smith]

Never say never (never never never)

You see I never thought that I could walk through fire
I never thought that I could take a burn
I never had the strength to take it higher
Until I reached the point of no return

And there's just no turnin back
When your heart's under attack
Gonna give everything I have
It's my destiny

I will never say never (I will fight)
I will fight till forever (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground
Pick it up, pick it up
Pick it up, pick it up (up up up...)
And never say never (ne-never say never x3)

I never thought that I could feel this power
I never thought that I could feel this free
I'm strong enough to climb the highest tower
And I'm fast enough to run across the sea

Cuz there's just no turnin back
When your heart's under attack
Gonna give everything I have
Cuz this is my destiny

I will never say never (I will fight)
I will fight till forever (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground
Pick it up, pick it up
Pick it up, pick it up (up up up...)
And never say never

Here we go
Guess who
J Smith and JB
uh huh
I got you lil' bro
I can handle him
Hold up, I, I can handle him
Now he's bigger than me, taller than me
And he's older than me, and stronger than me
And his arms are little bit longer than me
But it ain't on a JB song with me
I be tryna chill
They be tryna side with the thrill
No pun intended was raised by the power of will
Like Luke with the force if push comes to shove
Like Kobe with the fourth, ice water with blood (Let's go! )
I gotta be the best
And yes we're the flyest
Like David and Goliath
I conquered the giant
So now I got the world in my hand
I was born from two stars
So the moon's where I land
(Yeah I'm gone)
Yeah
I will never say never (I will fight)
I will fight till forever (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground
Pick it up, pick it up
Pick it up, pick it up (up up up...)
And never say never

Never say never

I will never say never (never say never)
I will fight till forever (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground
Pick it up, pick it up
Pick it up, pick it up (up up up...)
And never say never (ne-never say never, never say it x3)
And never say never (ne-never say never x3)
And never say never

    I think that Never Say Never is telling you to follow your heart and make the right decision (chose the right path) to get yourself to a good place to presue your dreams. For example: Justin Bieber has wanted to be a performer for the majority of his life and he made video's not thinking that they would get him anywhere. I mean just look at where they have gotten him. Justin Never Said Never and his dream came true. Now he is one of the most popular/talented artists in America and maybe even the world. Never Say Never and maybe your dreams will come true as well.

    I guess it did sound a little harsh, I guess. It wasn't actually meant to be as harsh as you guys took it. Even though I really don't like Justin Bieber and think he's a really bad singer, I do have one compliment about the song -- I agree with the name.
    Although like Eternalspark said, why does the kid keep stealing the names of other songs? Of good songs as well, and becoming more popular than them. Grrr.
    You know what, I will seriously hate him even more if he names a song 'When we collide' after Matt Cardle's song, because that would be giving him bad associations and I dead love Matt Cardle. Oh, He'd be even more dead if he redid Matt Cardle's song and made it sound horrible.
    So sorry if this post again sounds a bit complaining, and if I'm being a bit harsh but I am just stating my honest opinion of this singer and song. Sorry again for if it does / did sound a little bit too harsh.

    I think that Never Say Never just tells you to have fun doing what your doing. And to be yourself and to not change for anyone. He just wants girls to stay who they are and if they change, to stay themselves and be unique because that's why god made them and if people want to change them, then they can't.

    A look into justin bieber's psyche, this will probably stand as our generation's "a day in the life". In the first verse, justin expresses self doubt about how he will be able to take people who criticize him as well as his work. However, he tells himself that he has worked hard to get to the top. He don't give a damn about your opinion #swag.
    He achieves an almost state of nirvana, telling himself that he is 'fast enough to run across the sea'. This is, of course, an allusion to the bible. What does justin bieber mean when he compares himself to jesus? Perhaps he is saying that sacrifice himself to constant mistreatment in order to 'save' his generation, giving them a voice. He belts out "cuz this is my destinyyy". He will be our bob dylan.
    J smith's verse takes a surprising turn. He acknowledges that his adversaries are stronger physically and mentally. However, since he is on a jb song, they can't beat him. More biblical references are thrown around (david and goliath). He is the polar adversary of justin bieber in this song. Whereas justin bieber is all confidence, j smith uses his physical prowess to conquer the world. But j smith is still disappointed because he will never live up to his parents.
    The song ends with justin bieber assuring j smith the they must "never say never". The music intricately builds up under this repeated line until the final second, where jb's voice remains, singing "never say never" one final time a-capella. I would rate this song a strong 9. 5/10. The only reason it is not a perfect 10 is because the transition from jb's verses to j smith's is rough.

    My meaning to never say never is hard to explain because since I was little I have wanted to be a singer and have the chance to sing in front of a huge crowd and have millions of fans. Not only for the glory and fame but to know that I am helping someone out with my music and to see the faces on them when I sing it to them. And those words just make me know and believe that one day I will be making that dream come true. So whenever I get down I just listen to that song and tell my self that I should never say never!

    What this song means is never give up. A story I'm going to tell is true. Mrs. Andersen's nephew was traveling with his parents. They got out to get gas and when they came back he was gone. They searched everywhere when they saw an ambulence and a crowd. They found out it was him. He was in a coma. One day the nurse said he was almost dead. Then his heartbeat started again. He didn't give up and soon he was alive so much he woke up. That is what never say never means.

    Well, I believe this song is about being a star. Well, everone is a star. It has to do with love, loss and everything in between. Never Say Never is like you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Like Jaden. He is so young and has already been in a movie and sang in a song. That is someone to look up to.
    Love you Jaden! Like you Justin you okay.

    Okay even I know his bday was march 1 not march 2. Anyway I kinda think this song sounds like something by any given late 90's boy band (Btw: that's not a bad thing that's what I listened to when I was a lil kid it sounds cool). I mean it doesn't sound exactly like that but theres parts that do. Anyway (again) I took my sister to see the movie cuz shes in love with Justin Bieber and even tho I wasnt a huge fan of his (i like his music but I aint in love with him) I thought the movie was awesome. Tip: See it in 3D. It costs a little more, but its so worth it!

    This song is trying to tell listeners to conquer your dreams and to never give up. If you never try, then you have no chance of having success. It tries to motivate you and it's inspiring. It makes me feel that I can do anything and I am able to do it if I try. This song also tells you to always try your best. When you fall, you try again. One little ting goes a long way!

    I think this is a violent expression of bieber's more unsavoury thought patterns - the molestation fantasies, the nazi fetish etc. , as we have previously seen referenced in his work (the song 'baby' being a reference to his grotesque attraction to the younger members of our species). When justin sings the most poignant lyric of the song, 'yeah', we see an expression of his primal self, the bieber who he naturally feels an affinity with but fears to let loose.
    Thanks for reading my interpretation of the lyrics,.
    Yours sincerely,.

    It means that you should never ever stop believing in yourself. I have a connection. I had this dog, and he drove me crazy! I thought I might have to sell him or something, cause he is so hard to take care of! But then I thought. I wasted so much money buying him! Why waste it? So I kept him and learned how to take care of dogs properly.

    Never give up on any of your dreams. Because you never know your dream might become a reality one day. Live life to its fullest and never back down. When you get knocked down get back up and fight! My dream is to be a singer and I will do almost anything to make that happen as long as people don't stand in my way. It's my life my dream and no one, no one, can take that from me!

    Justin bieber is a young teen who knows his future and reached his goals. Who can't like a guy like that. And I this song is related to the movie jaden smith made- karate kid. It shows how you should never give up hope in the bad and good times. Always trust youreself and be confident. I love justin and his song!
    Sorry for spelling mistakes.
    By- a 12 year old who loves justin, songs and is the biggest nerd and popular girl in the school. Peace.

    The meaning of the song for me will help us all to be positive. This song encourage us to: stop doubting, start believing. Satan goes around like a roaring lion. He will do everything to corrupt our mind, beliefs, dreams and even he will do everything to destroy our courage and faith but this song remind us that all things are possible to those who believed and to those all who persevere. To all my only message is " you can never say that you can do the impossible things until you try do it so NEVER say NEVER".

    My brother Jaden said girls just throw they're selves at him 24-7 so he said he and his girlfriend Destiny will not complain so he and she walked over to Justin and Jaden said"Let's make a song "J" so it happen and he and j thought well girls "j. B" song so he changed his sound and see if they still liked him, so Jaden's girlfriend said "this will prove who the real fans are" and the ones who like him are the "true" fans goodnight from yo girl Willow Smith.
