Mark My Words
Justin Bieber Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Mark my words, that's all that I have
Mark my words, give you all I got
In every way, I will
You're the only reason why
Oh, I don't wanna live a lie
Mark my words
Mark my words
So you heard it all before
Falling in and out of trust
Trying to rekindle us
Only to lose yourself
But I won't let me lose you
And I won't let us just fade away
After all that we've been through
I'ma show you more than I ever could say

Mark my words, that's all that I have, oh-whoa
Mark my words, give you all I got
In every way, I will
You're the only reason why
Oh, I don't wanna live a lie




Mark my words
Mark my words, oh

And that, people, is is how a real artist (mainstream or not) grows, matures and inspires people. We're all proud of you Justin!

@MiiszLatina

Agreed 💯

@AbrahamSuneet

word👌

@brandonvorhis

You realize he stormed off a stage after one song. He's not mature till he gets his anger under control.

@christeenjoseph4480

+Brandon Vorhis he respected his fans but they didn't respect back. Plus he posted why on his Instagram. He wasn't really mad I'd say. He was disappointed and tired and his fans was too exited and ya so. He did mature but he doesn't have enough to time to get focused and relax a little I guess.

+Brandon Vorhis Sometimes you just have to
