The full video was premiered on Justin's official YouTube page on July 12, 2012. Justin very rarely referred to the video as a music video, but rather as a short film. The video was Bieber's longest music video at five minutes and fifty-two seconds, before being surpassed by "Confident" at six minutes and six seconds. It featured guest appearances by Michael Madsen and Big Sean, the latter of which performs the rapping on the track. The girl in the music video is Chanel Celaya. Synopsis

The video starts off with some flashbacks foreshadowing of what's going to be shown or happen in the video. Then presently, at a mansion gate, Justin appears as a loyal-but-trouble-making boyfriend to the daughter of an overprotective father, played by Madsen. In what can be seen as a prelude to the main events of the video, Madsen finds the words "You r so sexy" written on his daughter's neck, which later her whole make-up got removed at the time Justin Bieber climbed to her bedroom window and brought her away.

Outside their house, Madsen threatens Justin to stay away from his daughter, despite Justin's insistence that he loves her. Justin and his love interest secretly plan to meet at a train station late at night, to escape the clutches of her father. However, their plans are foiled when Madsen finds his daughter's bedroom empty and races off, only to catch up with them in the middle of the street. During the remaining part of the song and music video, Justin is assaulted by Madsen multiple times, only to rise to his feet and stand up again as the daughter watches and screams in horror.

As the video fades, representing that Justin is passing out from the pain, Madsen drags his daughter to their car. Throughout the video, scenes of Justin and his love interest spending quality times in various scenes (such as on her bed, at the park and on a rooftop) are shown, displaying their love.

LyricsEdit

As long as you love me
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 will 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 me, love me
As long as you 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 a scene girl
So don't stress, don't cry, we don't need no wings to fly
Just take, my hand

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 me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me

[Big Sean]
Yo, B.I.G
I don't know if this makes sense but,you're my Hallelujah
Give me a time and place, I'll rendezvous it, 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 you
Now we are on top of the world, 'cause that's just how we do (do)
Used to tell me sky's the limit, now the sky's is our point of view (view)
Man now we stepping out like whoa! (Oh God)
Camera's point and shoot,
Ask me what's my best side, I stand back and point at you you you
The one that I've argue with, I feel like I need a new girl to be bother 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 go ahead and start with someone new
As long as you love me

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 me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
love me, love me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
As long as you love me

As long as you love me
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 will 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 me, love me
As long as you 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 a scene girl
So don't stress, don't cry, we don't need no wings to fly
Just take, my hand

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 me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me

I don't need money
I don't need cars no
I don't need to shine if I got your heart
Beating right here
Here with me
Baby that's all I need

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 me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
love me, love me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
As long as you love, love me, love me
As long as you love me

I don't need money
I don't need cars no
I don't need to shine if I got your heart
Beating right here
Here with me
Baby that's all I need


Justin did a rap before they put Big Sean in it. He didn't write it but freestyled.

In a world so cold, here's the path that I've chosen
Here's a heart that ain't frozen
Do you feel the tears from my soul
See the pain it explains man
...
Hold it in like it ain't no thing
I just want you to know that I want us to be amazing

As Long As You Love Me unreleased part
