"Crushed" as written by and Aaron Lael Zigman Jerry Knight....
I told myself, today was going to be the day.
No more excuses, 'cause I knew exactly what to say.
Was going to make my play,
But just like yesterday.
My mind erased,
And I let the moment slip away.

Another night, got me sitting here
All on my own .
Picking up the phone,
But I can't get passed the dial tone.
Wracking my brain, going insane,
Again and again,
I can't keep going this way.

Crushed by the sweetest lips I never kissed.
And your fingertips and the warmest touch
That I've always missed.
Crushed by the softest hands I never held.
Probably never tell,
You're the strongest love that I've ever felt.
Crushed that I haven't ever let you know,
How it always goes, cause I lose my nerve
Whenever you get close.
And so I'm left,short-of-breath, with that heavy feeling in my chest.
Baby I'm so crushed.

So I told myself, that tomorrow's going to be the day.
And I keep on telling myself that I'm going to find a way.
And I won't be afraid just like yesterday,
Won't walk away.
Never gonna let another chance slip away.
'Cause I gotta know, whichever way it's gonna go.
Risk my heart and soul because there can never be no more.
Wracking my brain, going insane,
Again and again,
I won't keep going this way.

Crushed by the sweetest lips I never kissed.
And your fingertips and the warmest touch
That I've always missed.
Crushed by the softest hands I never held.
Probably never tell,
You're the strongest love that I've ever felt.
Crushed that I haven't ever let you know,
How it'd always goes, cause I lose my nerve
Whenever you get close.
And so I'm left,short-of-breath, with that heavy feeling in my chest.
Baby I'm so crushed.

Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you.
I don't know just what to do.
Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you.
Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you.
And so I'm left, short-of-breath, with that heavy feeling in my chest.
Baby I'm so

Crushed by the sweetest lips I never kissed.
And your fingertips and the warmest touch
That I've always missed.
Crushed by the softest hands I never held.
Probably never tell,
You're the strongest love that I've ever felt.
Crushed that I haven't never ever let you know,
How it'd always goes, 'cause I lose my nerve
Whenever you get close.
And so I'm left, short-of-breath, with that heavy feeling in my chest.
Baby I'm so

Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you (and I wanna stress that I always missed).
Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you (strongest love I ever felt).
Crushing I'm so into you, don't know what I'm going to do.
Gotta find a way to you.

And so I'm left, short-of-breath, with that heavy feeling in my chest.
Baby I'm so (crushed]

    General Commentthis is the most perfect song for what i'm going through at the moment. i absolutely love this song, and this is how i interpret it:

    She likes him. A LOT. he may, or may not, like her back. regardless, she is falling so fast for this guy, and it's killing her to keep all of her feelings bottled up, so she tells herself she has to tell him how she feels. but, everytime the perfect opportunity comes up to talk to him and to be with him, she freezes up, and lets it's slip by. then, she feels heavily burdened by it all. It crushes her emotionally because when people like someone a lot, but it's not going anywhere and they don't know how to express their feelings or when to say the things they need to say, they feel exactly like this. i know i have. and you probably have too.

    beautiful song.

    General CommentI love this song. I relate so well. so so so well.

    But I think she's going to be a one-hit wonder, if this song ever picks up more airtime.

    General CommentOmg! I love this song. It is one of those songs that will last a life time!! I will never foget listening to this master paice of a song.
    "Crushed
    By the softest hands I never held.
    Probably never tell, you're the strongest love I ever felt."
    The chorus is so pretty!!She did a really good job on this song!! She describes exactly what haveing a crush is like. We should all know how that feels. It is kind of sad that the person that she cares about doesn't love her back. Or he might but i am guessing by the song he doesn't even know how she feels.
    Anyone who didn't get the meaning must be the bigest idoit on earth! sorry for the dumb that didn't get the meaning.
    I also don't think many people would diss this song because it is so lovely. And i also think that most people have felt like this before so they wouldn't diss it. Even if they hate everything about this kind of music you can't diss a sing that is talking about someone loving someone else. Everyone has been there once or twice maybe even more.
    If you ever write a bad comment about the contents of this song I will personaly beat you!!!!!! just kinding but i will be very mad at you.
    Thank you for reading my comments =D

    General CommentBecause of my belief that you can't love someone who never loved you back, I think this song is about someone who regrets all the times she didn't do something about liking this guy. And he's killing her and doesn't even know it. "Crushed by the softest hands I've never held", she knows what she's missing but doesn't know how to get it.
