"As Long As You Love Me"

Justin's mother, Pattie Mallette, recently wrote a book about her painful experiences growing up, painful divorce of her parents, neglect of school, and an inch away from suicide six months before her baby was born.  The feeling of great pressure...  And who notices.?  Why would she want a baby to live in a place like this?  She could have considered it.  She could have considered everything this way:  "It would be better for the baby if I simply aborted...It's better for him this way! What if I don't have enough money, enough food, a home to support him/her in...?  It would be just better this way...".   But she didn't go through with it!   Somehow she trusted God in this impossible circumstance....She decided to stand on love instead of  whatever her mind might have been saying...she let God decide what would be from her mind "better" for her and for the baby.   Now we are all see what God had in mind;  we are all hearing a current song from this gift from God to his mother; a song that I believe was what a mother decades ago heard softly hearing from her unborn child, inside her womb from her baby boy, crying long before he was born:


"As Long As You Love Me"
As long as you love me

We're under pressure,
Seven billion people in the world trying to fit in
Keep it together,
Smile on your face even though your heart is frowning
But hey now, you know, girl,
We both know it's a cruel world
But I [would] take my chances

As long as you love me
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)

I'll be your soldier,
Fighting every second of the day for your dreams, girl
I'll be your Hova
You can be my Destiny's Child on the scene girl
So don't stress, don't cry, we don't need no wings to fly
Just take my hand

As long as you love me
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)

Yo, B-I-G
I don't know if this makes sense, but you're my hallelujah
Give me a time and place, and I'll rendezvous, and I'll fly you to it,
I'll beat you there
Girl you know I got you
Us, trust...
A couple of things I can't spell without 'U'
Now we are on top of the world, 'cause that's just how we do
Used to tell me, "Sky's the limit", now the sky's our point of view (view)
Man now we stepping out like, "Whoa" (Oh God)
Cameras point and shoot (shoot)
Ask me what's my best side, I stand back and point at you
You, you the one that I argue with, I feel like I need a new girl to be bothered with,
But the grass ain't always greener on the other side,
It's green where you water it
So I know we got issues baby true, true, true,
But I'd rather work on this with you
Than to go ahead and start with someone new
As long as you love me

As long as you love me (Love me yeah yeah yeah)
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me (I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold)
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me
 
Someone encouraged her and she had the baby! That baby, of course, is Justin Beiber.  I believe it takes faith to stand when no one else is standing around you. Stand and believe what God can do through it all! I believe that In her heart a baby inside of her was singing a song.   Every time you look at Justin, I pray that you see the value of a person's life, no matter the circumstances are, long before babies are formed in the womb.     

"As long as you love me" Great song Justin!
