"Hold Tight" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Justin Bieber. It was released on October 21, 2013. He says happy birthday in the beginning of the song because Poo Bear wrote the song and that's his catch phrase.

You really want me to describe this song? I told you the journals are bringing you into my most intimate moments. Just listen to the song and HOLD on as TIGHT as you can. Happy Birthday. - JB

Background Edit

The song was first called "Grip Tight". It was a pulsing, dirty club track that Poo Bear had prepared for his own solo project. Justin wanted the track. But Poo Bear told him: “You’re 18, and it’s a very sexual song. You can’t go from singing ‘Beauty and a Beat’ to ‘Grip Tight.’ ” Poo Bear changed “Grip Tight” to “Hold Tight” (“That way it could be about a hug situation”), and the song became their first collaboration.

Lyrics Edit

Happy birthday, happy birthday

They hold on tight
Yeah, they hold on tight
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go
(Lips won’t let me go, lips won’t let me go, oh)

They hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Yeah, they hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go
(Lips won’t let me go, lips won’t let me go, oh)

Don’t let this go to your head
But you’re the best I’ve ever had
Not to mention
That thing is swollen
You got me, oh, so in a trance

Something like a zip lock, but a lip lock
Want you wrapped 'round my arm like a wrist watch
Oh, so hard walking out
Got me stuck like crazy glue, ooh

They hold on tight
Yeah, they hold on tight
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go
(Lips won’t let me go, lips won’t let me go, oh)

They hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Yeah, they hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go

Got me tossing, turning in the bed
Your place is where I'd rather be instead
You don’t know your strength
Missing you is like adrenaline

Oh, when you got me in a grid lock
What a great spot
Yeah, that turned up kind of love and it just won’t stop
No, so hard walking out
Got me stuck like crazy glue, ooh babe

They hold on tight
Yeah, they hold on tight
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go
(Lips won’t let me go, lips won’t let me go, oh)

They hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Yeah, they hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go, oh, baby

Holding back the faces I would make
I’m a fan and you’re the rock star
Making it hard on me
Visualize a monster
‘Cause you’re too bad for me
Shot that arrow, I’m hit
Need you right near me
Trying to maintain, so don’t mind if I turn away (no, no)
I try to maintain, so don’t mind if I turn away, ooh

They hold on tight
They hold on tight
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go
(Lips won’t let me go, lips won’t let me go, oh)

They hold on tight (they hold on tight)
Yeah, they hold on tight (they hold tight)
Ooh, they hold on tight
Them lips won’t let me go, no
