"Shelf" as written by and Jonas/jonas/jonas Ii....
She's such a flirt
And I am the lonely heart
Give it a chance
For our love to start
But you'll never see
If you don't give me a shot
To show you what I've got, but

It's too late to pretend
You know me better than I know myself
Don't take my heart and put it on a shelf
Always someone else
The next guy who will
Make your cold heart melt
I'm gonna give my love to someone else

I held your hand (ah ah)
It felt like a movie
I made some plans (ah ah)
But you were already moving on
Now, I'm stuck under a rainy cloud
But you don't seem to care
But it's alright 'cause

It's too late to pretend
You know me better than I know myself
Don't take my heart and put it on a shelf
Always someone else
The next guy who will
Make your cold heart melt
I'm gonna give my love to someone else

I'm tired of wasting all my time
My heart is hanging on the line
Is it me girl or someone else
Please take it off the shelf

It's too late to pretend
You know me better than I know myself
Don't take my heart and put it on a shelf

La la la la la
La la la la la

Everybody!

Always someone else
The next guy who will
Make your cold heart melt
I'm gonna give my love to someone else
Yeah

Woo ooooo

    General CommentThey played on their Look Me In the Eyes tour that ran this year from end of January to the end of March. And yes, it'll be on their new album. Here's a link to a video I took of it:

    General CommentIt's called "Shelf." The official tracklisting for A Little Bit Longer is up on Amazon.com, and it says the correct title is "Shelf."

    General Commentdaniekay:
    if you buy their new album it says on the cd.
    you have to put it in your computer. and it says why wrote each song.
    i think the first name means they write the most.
    nick is on like every song. joe and kevin are not.

    General CommentThis is pretty much my favorite song on the album. It's about a girl ditching them kinda and leaving them and suddenly not caring. Again, self explanitory. Most of their songs are. I love them :] want to hear confusing songs? Fall Out Boy and All Time Low can be a little out there haha. Some more of my favorite bands :]]]
