The break up started as a wreck turned breakup, and Bieber could go on and start courting Hailey 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley in June. 1st earl baldwin of bewdley and Bieber got engaged a month later and married in September 2018.

Gomez said nothing immediately about them.

Gomez's track this night is her first public comment on her love life duration due to the fact she turned into courting Bieber at the give up of 2017 and early 2018. She wrote it with Finneas, Robin Fredriksson, Mattias Larsson, Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, in line with Genius.

Here, the lyrics, via Genius, with any possible Bieber references indicated, along with the gorgeous song and music video to watch below:

You promised the world
And I fell for it
I put you first and you adored it
Set fires to my forest
And you let it burn

Bieber and Gomez reconciled for the last time in October 2017 where Gomez indicates she positioned him above the entirety, but that they had a number of interactions among the release of Revival (in October 2015) and her single nowadays. Bieber posted throwback snap shots of them collectively in 2015 and 2016, nostalgic for his or her courting before they reconciled. And in the darker moments, he set more than one fires to her wooded area, long before he set what might be considered the the very last one: him courting, getting engaged, and ultimately married to Hailey 1st earl baldwin of bewdley less than six months after he and Gomez took a spoil (became breakup).

The 2 got into a very viral Instagram remark combat in August 2016 while Gomez commented on a photograph of Bieber complaining approximately the hate his then-female friend Sofia Richie turned into getting, "if you can not take care of the detest, then prevent posting pics of your female friend lol," she wrote. "It need to be unique between you two most effective. Don't be mad at your fanatics. They love you." Bieber brutally responded lower back, "it is humorous to peer humans that used me for interest and still try to point the finger this manner." That turned into the darkest public second in Jelena's history.

Sang off-key in my chorus
'Cause it wasn't yours.
I saw the signs and I ignored it
Rose-colored glasses all distorted
Set fire to my purpose
And I let it burn
You got off on the hurting when it wasn't yours, yeah

This isn't the first time Selena Gomez has apparently sung approximately the pain her dating with Bieber induced her. In her tune "The coronary heart wishes What It wishes," (a tune with a music video in addition shot in black and white) Gomez blanketed a intro monologue wherein she spoke about being harm by someone she cherished, believed to be Bieber then. She stated in that intro, "while i was on degree and i used to be considering... I recognize him, though. I understand his heart, and i understand what he wouldn’t do to harm me. However I didn’t recognise that feeling so confident, feeling so tremendous approximately myself after which it simply be completely shattered. With the aid of one component. With the aid of some thing so stupid. But then you make me sense crazy, you make me feel like it’s my fault. I used to be in ache."

Bieber also admitted this summer season that he mistreated all the women he dated, consisting of Gomez, before he in the long run married Hailey 1st earl baldwin of bewdley. "I began doing pretty heavy tablets at 19 and abused all of my relationships," he wrote last month. "I have become green with envy, disrespectful to ladies, and irritated. I have become distant to all of us who loved me, and i used to be hiding in the back of a shell of someone that I had grow to be. I felt like I could never turn it around. It’s taken me years to get better from all of those terrible decisions, fix damaged relationships, and change courting behavior. Fortunately god blessed me with remarkable folks that love me for me."

Chorus:
We'd always go into it blindly
I needed to lose you to find me
This dancing was killing me softly
I needed to hate you to love me
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
I needed to lose you to love me (Yeah)
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
I needed to lose you to love me

The dancing may want to figuratively be their on-off courting cycles. And leaving Bieber behind, as Gomez in the long run did in March 2018, may additionally have been her manner of reprioritizing herself over him. Us Weekly counseled, whilst Jelena's damage become first stated, that Bieber's selfishness changed into why Gomez pulled the trigger. “[He] doesn’t care approximately all and sundry but himself," a source advised the opening that month. "the second she saw it, she walked away, in particular now together with her health. She is aware of she doesn’t need him.”

Verse 2:
I gave my all and they all know it

The remaining comment Gomez gave approximately Bieber was in her Billboard November 2017 interview. She defined her selection then to carry him again into her existence, hinting then how a lot she valued and positioned into that courting. "I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20," she said. "I cherish humans who have clearly impacted my life. So maybe before, it is able to were forcing something that wasn't proper. However that does not mean caring for someone ever is going away.And [that goes for] humans in trendy. I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus]—we’ve gone via seasons in our lives. I don’t suppose it’s as severe as human beings make matters out to be 1/2 the time. It’s just my existence. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to look in which every body is. It comes again to the idea of me remaining full. I suppose a true illustration of affection is past just your self. It’s me going to get espresso in advance this morning and speaking with a woman who become celebrating her birthday and going to Disneyland for the first time. I informed her about my favored things there, and she or he were given excited, after which I were given excited due to the fact she turned into excited. The littlest things are impactful."

After their very last breakup, a source might inform enjoyment this night in August 2018 (Bieber and 1st earl baldwin of bewdley have been engaged then) that Gomez's pals did not like Bieber. "Selena is one of these capture, and her buddies want her to be with someone who's worth of her," the supply said. "They clearly did not like Justin and her together. He failed to appreciate what he had in her."

You grew to become me down, and now it's displaying
In two months you changed us
Adore it become smooth
Made me think I deserved it
Inside the thick of recovery, yeah

Bieber started dating Hailey Baldwin in June 2018 and got engaged to her in July. He explained to fans that he'd always love Gomez but that Baldwin was the bride he chose in a lengthy Instagram comment. He wrote, "I absolutely loved and love Selena she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over heels in love with my wife and she is absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me period....This is a reply to all immature sick people who send Hailey hurtful messages like ' he always goes back to Selena' or 'Selena is better for him' YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY LIFE AND WHATs good for me. Hailey is my Bride period if you don’t like that or support that that means you don’t support me and if you don’t support me your not a fan nor a good person."

Pre-Chorus
We'd always go into it blindly
I needed to lose you to find me
This dancing was killing me softly

To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
I needed to lose you to love me (Yeah)
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
I needed to lose you to love me

Verse 1, repeated:
You promised the world and I fell for it
I put you first, and you adored it
Set fires to my forest
And you let it burn
Sang off-key in my chorus

Chorus:
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
I needed to hate you to love me (Yeah)
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love me
I needed to lose you to love me
To love, love, yeah,
To love, love, yeah,
To love, yeah
