  • Lyrics
  • This sultry, R&B-centered ode was released as the third installment of Justin's Music Mondays series. The song finds the singer haunted by the memories of an unforgettable kiss. He croons:

    "Something like a zip-lock
    But a lip lock
    Want you wrapped around me like a wrist watch."

    Many believe his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez is the focus of this tune. This is supported by Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, who told Billboard magazine that the songs featured on his Music Mondays series were created while the pop superstar was "going through a tough time" on the road. He was referring to Justin's Believe Tour - the pair broke up during the first few months of the concert run.
