Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Justin Bieber telling his girl they need to learn to trust each other in order to advance in their relationship. The singer has been burned too many times to make trusting easy for him. "Trusting people is hard, especially for me. I've trusted people who I probably shouldn't have trusted before and they've hurt my heart," he said on Elvis Duran and The Morning Show. "I'm a pretty sensitive guy, so I'll lay it all on the line, and they'll kind of pull it. So now I'm figuring out there's certain people I can't do that with."

    However, Bieber's bad experiences doesn't mean he can't trust the next person that comes along. "Here's what I'll tell that people: Don't let someone who ruined your trust ruin the next person's chance to gain that trust," he said. "I think I let that affect me and change the way I looked at people for a while."
