2 Treat You Better

I kinda liked this song when it was first posted on vine by Shawn Mendes and now I have fallen in love..

If he says that "I know I can treat you better than he can", then I'll say "i know you can treat me better than he can"...

This is like my life in a song. I couldn't bear to see my crush with another guy and we were really close. But then god exists and now were together. It's my go to song.

Best song ever

7 In My Blood

Behold the horrors they like beneath the shadows of remorse. You wouldn't know of course, but I force a new judgement day. On this day you will repay. Your respects to all that may lurk in between your mind and man kind. Now have a seat and be afraid. Fears about to commence the final ritual. One body is all we need for this to be complete and when the day begins to take form you won't be leaving those doors you only live with us inside the darkness as we tear you up inside. I was left behind! All this torture will unwind! I was never all that kind! If you were to rewind then to you'll find! I was left behind take your turn to run and hide! I will catch you all the time! This night no longer shines your tears divine! You'll now be mine!
Behold the terrors you won't believe what I have done to you! I made it look brand new oh how cute,but don't digress. I'm the ringmaster you see. I'm this horror game you flee. I take up every shadow believe me. Now have a seat and grab your light. ...more

Holy cow, BOOM! Awesome, my list is here.
1. In my blood
2. Mercy
3. There's nothing holding me back
4. Life of the Party
5. Something big
6. Stitches
7. Treat you better
8. Show you

This song has great lyrics about him not giving up his life, and an amazing melody. My favorite Shawn Mendes song, and my favorite song of 2018 for that matter. - allamassal

Where are the other songs? GIRLS! There are three albums.. these aren't the only beautiful songs of him. He wrote and release other masterpieces - shawnsnose

8 Imagination

This song has elements from two Taylor Swift songs; White Horse and Mine. In the choruses of both Mine and Imagination there's a line that a sudden "for the first time."

Usually underrated but my favorite Shawn Mendes song... Oh the feels in this song... Too good...

Best song ever! Beautiful lyrics and beautiful music! My favourite Shawn mendes song!

The best Shawn mendes song in my opinion.

9 Something Big

I'm not a hater but an EXTREMELY worried about his voice. Shawn Mendes experienced vocal damage after his cover of 1D's Drag Me Down. If he gets a vocal cord hemorrhage Earth will be in SHOCK! He got the damage because in 2015 he had to SING FOR A LONG TIME! He belted in Life Of The Party (ending was series of F4 belts,) Something Big (Bb4 belts across bridge,) and Stitches (G#4 belt between bridge and final chorus.)


Love it x1000000

15 Never Be Alone

This song is definitely my favorite from Shawn. It is just so beautiful. I think the song is written from the side of a guy who's about to leave his girl for some overseas job and they both know that they'll now have to pursue a long distance relationship. This song is the guy's assurance that he'll always remain loyal to her. It's so breathtakingly beautifu and Shawn's vocal delivery is effortless and raw. Moreover, it has that mountain vibe to it, which makes it all the more fresh.

My favorites from Shawn :
1) Never be alone
2) Something Big
3) Stitches
4) There's nothing holding me back
5) In my blood
6) Treat You Better
7) Lost in Japan
8) I know what you did last summer

It's just a really really emotional but great songs with amazing lyrics. Definitely one of my favorites

Best lyrical must be around top 5

This should be in the top five - shawnsnose

19 Show You

Shawn is the best male singer and this song is amazing just like him

It is amazing with a catchy melody

This song is cool!

20 Little Too Much

Why is this not in the top 10? I honestly love this song so much and it teaches me such good things. He wrote this song with all his heart and I love it.

Beautiful piano chords are integrated with the strumming of the guitar. meanwhile the harmony carries out its own tune which blends in with the backing, weaving in and out of diminished and augmented chords

This song deserves better - shawnsnose

I love this really bad

The best song on his new album

26 Don't Be a Fool

Are you serious..? What happened to your taste guys? This song is the best song of Shawn Mendes. This is the song that should be the number 1 song in this list. I'm really disappointed with people's taste... This is the reason songs like this are disappearing..

Piece of art - shawnsnose

34 Understand

This song has a lot of Shawn's actual voice and beliefs and insecurities in it and I think that's what makes it so powerful and relatable.

Love this song, moving and truly inspirational lyrics❤

35 Hold On

CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT HOW UNDERRATED THIS SONG IS? to be honest this is my favourite Shawn Mendes song, top 7 being mostly underrated ones, this, Roses, Aftertaste, Memories, There's Nothing Holding Me Back, Never Be Alone and Stitches. ❤️Not that all aren't great.

44 Where Were You in the Morning

I literally cannot describe why I love this song so much

One of the best Shawn Mendes song

45 Why
46 Oh Cecilia

Shawn sounds like Taylor Swift in 2012-13, when she released Red. I heard this and I thought the featured artist was Taylor Swift and was recorded in 2013.

Shawn belted a VERY HIGH note: F#5. I assume his range is F#2-F#5-G5, since recently he reached G5 by falsetto.

G#4 or 5

Love this song! It's so happy😊😍the vamps and shawn sound so amazing together!

47 Three Empty Words

So meaningful lyrics with soulful music

48 There's Nothing Holding Me Back

Ok this song insist the best song ever love it is the best song ever

49 Mutual

Don’t know why I love this song so much but it has a great melody. Not one of Shawn’s emotional songs but a easy and fun song
