Jonas Brothers Lyrics That Take Fans Way Back

11 Jonas Brothers Lyrics That Take Fans Way Back

"When you look me in the eyes, and tell me that you love me..."


The Jonas Brothers. The JoBros. The original JB. Since 2006, they've been gracing our radio stations and YouTube playlists with the biggest pop hits that we'll never forget (and haven't forgotten). It was the best thing to obsess over as a kid. Endless tv show appearances, Camp Rock movies with Demi Lovato, and a dedicated fanbase were everything we lived for. The Jonas Brothers knew how to combine soft, sweet melodies and switch it up into a rock song that everyone enjoys jamming out to. Now that they're back together again, it's time to bring some of the best lyrics back from the Jonas Brothers' greatest hits.

1. "Mandy"

An age-old classic. We all wanted to be Mandy at some point and some of us may even feel like Mandy in some of our relationships now.


"Mandy always laughs when I act stupid

I am unaware that I'm a nuisance

With her, it's never wasted time"

2. "SOS"

We can all agree that this is one of those songs you just can't resist shouting at the top of your lungs; I mean, we've all been there before.


"I gave my all for you,

now my heart's in two

And I can't find the other half"

3. "Hello Beautiful"

The Jonas Brothers just have a way of serenading you and making you feel like you're in love for the first time. This ballad is heartfelt, and teen girls everywhere definitely melted into puddles.


"Cause I could go across the world

See everything and never be satisfied

If I couldn't see those eyes"

4. "When You Look Me In The Eyes"

I can't tell you how iconic this song is. It's one of the Jonas Brothers' most popular songs that everyone could recite while holding up a flickering lighter. You can feel the soul in this song.


"I can't take a day without you here,

You're the light that makes my darkness disappear."

5. "Just Friends"

IM? I'm too scared to see who even remembers that. But for those who do, this lyric sure does take us way, way back to the days of creating cliché usernames and cringy chats with our bestie.


"Small talk on IM

Just one-word sentences

It's cool we're just friends"

6. "Burnin' Up"

The song that men, women, and children of 2008 everywhere could rock out to. Everyone knew it. Remember how shook we were because Selena Gomez was in the video? And the way that Nick says, "red dress"? Nine-year-old me is screaming on the inside. Also, there was nothing more satisfying than spitting Big Rob's verse perfectly.


"Baby, who turned the temperature hotter?

'Cause I'm burning up, burning up

For you baby"

7. "Lovebug"

This song about finding love again really makes you wanna lay back and reminisce. That is until you get to the super cool beat drop where the song goes from sweet ballad to fun rock.


"Suddenly I forgot how to speak

Hopeless, breathless

Baby, can't you see?"

8. "A Little Bit Longer"

This song hit like a truck. The lyrics detail of someone getting bad news at the doctors and being told that maybe if they hold out a little bit longer, they'd be fine. This song is presumably about Nick Jonas' diabetes discovery.


"But you don't know what you got 'til it's gone

And you don't know what it's like to feel so low"

9. "Live To Party"

This song was the theme song to the Jonas Brothers' Disney Channel show called "Jonas". It really makes you want to have fun and just live your life instead of staying at home. Also, this is a great reminder of how amazing the show was!


"I drove her home and then she whispered in my ear

The party doesn't have to end we can dance here"

10. "Paranoid"

The music video to this song was what made it so iconic. I remember seeing the video and thinking, "Whoa, this is trippy" because of the visuals. The paranoia in this song is reflected in the several different versions of the brothers running away from something.


"If you hear my cry, running through the streets

I'm about to freak, come and rescue me"

11. "Before The Storm"

This all-too-relatable track really blew my socks off because of how iconic it was at the time. Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus were dating, and so she featured on this song with the band. Their voices combined together was a once-in-a-lifetime harmonization that we'll probably never get again (but it was such a huge deal).


"I'm flooded with all this pain

Knowing that I'll never hold her

Like I did before the storm"

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
