Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been dating off and on since 2011—that's a lot of time and a lot of drama and ~feelings~ to put into songs. And yeah, they've put it all into song. Here's a definitive list of the songs that Jelena have penned about each other and their relationship's infamous ups and downs.

1. "Love Will Remember," 2013 

Selena released this very emotional track after the couple's first big breakup in 2013. It literally includes a voicemail he left her.

2."Bad Day," 2013

In case you didn't know that Jelena had bad times, Justin let you know in this track.

Justin also seemed to take responsibility for his role in the deterioration of the relationship with lyrics like, "Never thought a love like yours would leave me all alone, oh no / Didn't waste any time / But you had already made up your mind / No sympathy / Cause I was out of line, oh yeah."

3."Nothing Like Us," 2013

But Justin was also careful to remind us that the couple had good times, like in his song "Nothing Like Us."

4."Nobody Does It Like You," 2013

Selena acknowledged that she was into Justin's notorious bad boy rep with lyrics like, "You're my bad boy fairytale/ My rebel with a halo / You hit me like a hurricane/ And I can never say no."

5."Come & Get It," 2013

Many interpreted "Come & Get It" as an open invitation for Justin to come back into Selena's life.

6."Heartbreaker," 2013

"It's a song for people going through heartbreak — like I was when I wrote it," Justin wrote on Twitter about the track. "It means so much to me to be able to share what I was, and am still going through, with my fans."

7."Forget Forever," 2013 

Selena seemed to reference the breakdown of their love in this 2013 song, singing, "Our love was made to rule the world / You came and broke the perfect girl."

8."All That Matters," 2013

Justin also wrote about the good times. Her confirmed that Selena was the inspiration behind this song during a radio interview with "'All That Matters' was written when I was in a great place in my relationship," he explained. "At that time, she was all that mattered."

Then, when asked directly if it was about Selena, Justin confirmed, "I wrote the best music once my heart was broken."

9."Hold Tight," 2013

Basically, Justin spent most of 2013 pouring his feelings about Selena into song.

10."The Heart Wants What It Wants," 2014

Selena's emotional track, "The Heart Wants What it Wants," laid all of her complicated feelings for Justin on the line.

11."I Want You To Know," 2015

Selena collaborated on this track with Zedd (who she briefly dated), but many fans were convinced it was about Justin.

12."Where Are Ü Now," 2015

This emotional song about a lost love feels like it could only be inspired by Selena.

13."Mark My Words," 2015

Justin still seemed to be referencing a future reconciliation with Selena in this track, singing, "Trying to rekindle us / Only to lose yourself / But I won't let me lose you / And I won't let us just fade away / After all that we've been through / I'ma show you more than I ever could say."

14."What Do You Mean?" 2015

2015 saw a slew of songs from Justin that definitely seemed to be about Selena. This one shined a light on what he saw as her tendency to say one thing and do another when it came to their relationship.

15."Love Yourself," 2015

There's strong evidence that this one is about Selena—she actually has "love yourself first" tattooed in Arabic on her back. Does this mean the Biebs' mom doesn't like her? Say it isn't so.

16."Same Old Love," 2015

Selena sang about a relationship that had had a LOT of ups and downs in this track, with lyrics like, "Take away your things and go / You can't take back what you said, I know / I've heard it all before, at least a million times." Hmm, who could have told her sorry "at least a million times..."?

17."Sorry," 2015

Was it too late to say sorry? Jelena's recent rekindling would suggest that no, it was not.

18."Friends," 2017

This song, about hoping it's possible to still be friends with an ex, came out just before Justin and Selena started hanging out again. Coincidence? Maybe. But Maybe not, right?
