Shawn Mendes: Treat You Better Meaning
Song Released: 2016
Treat You Better Lyrics
I know he's just not right for you
And you can tell 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 any time you want it to...

This song is about a girl who has a boyfriend and that boyfriend does not treat her in a good way and another boy who loves the girl sees that girl is in a bad relationship so the boy expresses his meaning to the girl like he says that he won't lie to her and he knows that she is in a bad relationship also he knows that he treats better than his boyfriend and he asks the girl why you wasting your time with him and once if you say that you would like to me I just give you the love that you are missing only thing I just want to wake up with you so anything you want I will give you and any girl like you deserves a boy like me and also he asked her why you wasting all your time and wasted crying when you should be with me instead of him I promise that I won't let you down

He spies a pretty girl with his little eye a girl that has a boy but notices that she gets abused by her boyfriend and that he treat her like $hit and that he can treat her better

I think it's deeper than that, I think what he was saying is that there is a man out there for you who will treat you better who won't lie he knows this because that man is waiting for you to chose him instead of wanting to stay with this man you say is the one. But yet you look in the mirror and in your face you know that he ain't right for you, your spending all this time crying and in a wrong situation when you can be spending it with the man that is meant for you who treat you better like you deserve.

A girl who struggling to cope with her boyfriend and is being abused all the time

https://youtu.be/Z2USDnIRQy8 at the 15:55 mark and forward sums it up really, even though the video shows her having an abusive relationship he is pretty douchy singing about how he could treat her better instead of just helping her out of the relationship with no rewards or any thoughts about becoming her boyfriend.

Watch the music video and you will see that its about a girl in a abusive relationship and hes saying that Shawn thinks he can treat her better than that ass can.

Shawn had a crush on Fifth Harmony member Camilla Cabello, and Austin Mahone had a crush on her too, so he's referring to the fact that he thinks he can treat Camila better than Austin.

He knows that she is being hurt but she won't leave him. He knows that he can treat her a lot better than the abusive boyfriend can and he is willing to help her and wait as long as he has to to be able to be with her.

I agree with these previous interpretations. I think there is a girl that he is in love with but she already has a boyfriend, both Shawn and the girl know that this boyfriend is being cruel to her. But she won't leave him (for whatever weird reason) and he is promising her that he can treat her better, and saying she doesn't deserve this treatment.

Shawn sees another guy eating a kitkat the wrong way and he is hungry and wants it so tells the kitkat he can treat it better and eat it the right way.

it about a girl who has abusive boyfriend who lies to her cheat and get her into trouble and most importantly treat her wrong and so shawn say If you come with me I can treat you better and you don't have to face him by your self I will always be with you
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
