Treat You Better
Shawn Mendes Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I won't lie to you
I know he's just not right for you
And you can tell me if I'm off
But I see it on your face
When you say that he's the one that you want
And you're spending all your time
In this wrong situation
And anytime you want it to stop

I know I can treat you better
Than he can
And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
Tell me why are we wasting time
On all your wasted cryin'
When you should be with me instead
I know I can treat you better
Better than he can

I'll stop time for you
The second you say you'd like me to
I just wanna give you the loving that you're missing
Baby, just to wake up with you
Would be everything I need and this could be so different
Tell me what you want to do

'Cause I know I can treat you better
Than he can
And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
Tell me why are we wasting time
On all your wasted cryin'
When you should be with me instead
I know I can treat you better
Better than he can

Better than he can

Give me a sign
Take my hand, we'll be fine
Promise I won't let you down
Just know that you don't
Have to do this alone
Promise I'll never let you down

'Cause I know I can treat you better
Than he can
And any girl like you deserves a gentleman
Tell me why are we wasting time
On all your wasted cryin'
When you should be with me instead
I know I can treat you better
Better than he can (can, oh)

Better than he can
Better than he can

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Shawn Mendes's song "Treat You Better" describes a man's desire to "treat" a woman better than her current partner is able to. He notices that she is in a "wrong situation" and may not necessarily be happy with her current partner, but is afraid to leave. The singer believes that he could give her the love and attention she deserves and is willing to do whatever it takes to prove that he can treat her better than her current partner. Throughout the song, he repeatedly assures her that she deserves a gentleman and that he can "stop time" for her and give her everything she needs.


The first verse, starting with "I won't lie to you," establishes the singer's desire to be honest, direct and upfront with the woman. He recognizes that her current partner is not treating her well or making her happy, which is confirmed by her facial expression. He is asking her to be honest with him about her feelings so that he can offer an alternative. He is also making it clear that he is not just another man trying to take advantage of her vulnerable position but is genuinely interested in giving her the love and respect she deserves. The chorus "I know I can treat you better" is the central message of the song, which reflects the singer's unwavering belief in his ability to love and care for the woman better than her current partner.


The song has been interpreted by some as a problematic and potentially possessive narrative because it implies that women need a man to rescue them from their suffering. Fans argue that the song is meant to be a message of hope and encouragement, that there is someone out there who can love and care for her better than her current partner. The song has become very popular, and it has won multiple pop awards since its release.

You are free to disagree with me


But I see it on your face
I can tell by your expression


When you say that he's the one that you want
Even though you say you want him


And you're spending all your time
You are devoting your time


In this wrong situation
To this unsuitable relationship


And anytime you want it to stop
And whenever you want it to end

I am confident that I can treat you better

Be aware that you are not


Have to do this alone
Required to go through this by yourself


Promise I'll never let you down
I make an assurance that I will always be there for you


Better than he can
I can treat you better than the person you are with


Better than he can
I can treat you better than the person you are with
