Baby - Justin Bieber

Ohh wooaahhh) x3

You know you love me
I know you care
Just shout whenever,
And I'll be there
You want my love
You want my heart
And we would never, ever, ever be apart

Are we an item?
Girl quit playin'
We're just friends,
What are you sayin'?
Said there's another and look right in my eyes
My first love, broke my heart for the first time

And I was like
Baby, baby, baby ooh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Thought you'd always be mine (mine)
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Thought you'd always be mine (mine)

Oh oh for you, I would have done whatever
And I just can't believe we ain't together
And I wanna play it cool
But I'm losin' you
I'll buy you anything
I'll buy you any ring
And I'm in pieces
Baby fix me
And just shake me till you wake me from this bad dream
I'm goin down, down, down, down
And I just can't believe my first love won't be around

And I'm like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Thought you'd always be mine (mine)
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Thought you'd always be mine (mine)

When I was 13, I had my first love
There was nobody that compared to my baby
And nobody came between us, no one could ever come above
She had me going crazy, oh I was star-struck,
She woke me up daily, don't need no Starbucks (Woo! )
She made my heart pound, and skip a beat when I see her in the street
And at school on the playground but I really wanna see her on the weekend
She knows she got me dazing cuz she was so amazing
And now my heart is breaking but I just keep on saying...

Baby, baby, baby ohh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Thought you'd always be mine (mine)

Baby, baby, baby ohhh
Like
Baby, baby, baby, noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Though you'd always be mine (mine)

I'm gone
Yeahh, yeah, yeah
Yeahh, yeahhh
Now I'm all gone
Yeahh, yeah, yeah
Yeahh, yeahhh
Now I'm all gone
Yeahh, yeah, yeah
Yeahh, yeahhh
Now I'm all gone, gone, gone, gone
I'm gone

In short, the song basically tells about a boy's sadness after he is left behind by his girl, his first love. So far he always thinks that they will always be together. He never imagines that their love finally comes to an end. This condition makes him so disappointed and sad that he prefers thinking it as a bad dream to facing it as reality. As he sings 'just shake me till you wake me from this bad dream,' he wants to wake up and the sadness he feels will quickly be gone. But it turns out that it really happens. He tries to 'play cool' which means he wants to look as if there is nothing happens. But he could do that since 'losing his first love' really makes him depressed. And so he behaves 'like a baby.'

The mood of this Justin Bieber's song is actually a sad one. However, Justin Bieber's vocal style and the music of the song seems to conceal this mood. It is happiness which is finally heard from this song. Moreover, almost the whole lyric lines is denotative in nature. But, there are some sentences and phrase which can be included into figurative language. 'I'm like a baby,' is among those sentences which have figurative meanings.
