    You must be new! Justin Timberlake's songs are always long since his 1st album in 2001, maybe his songs are long because he never stop jamming! Lol

    But hey, did you know the beautiful "TRUE STORY" behind his song Mirrors?

    From its lyrics:

    Now you're the inspiration for this precious song

    And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on

    So now I say goodbye to the old me, it's already gone

    And I can't wait wait wait wait wait to get you home

    Just to let you know, you are, you are the love of my life.

    Justin Timberlake said he wrote this song about his temporary breakup with Jessica Biel, how they missed each other and how that temporary breakup lead each other to get marry.

    Later, Justin wanted to dedicate Mirrors music video for his grandparents William & Sadie "You an see their names at the beginning of the video" because his grandpa William died only several weeks after Justin's wedding with Jessica Biel.

    Now Mirrors video showed us how Justin's grandparents met each other and how William loved Sadie till the day he died. See at the end of Mirrors video, when Sadie gave her wedding ring to grandson Justin, wishing him to carry their legacy and love his wife till the day he dies, just like his grandpa.

    Its story is very sweet and rare to happen in other songs nowadays.

    No reason. Probably because he wanted to do something iconic and deep.
