"Crashed" as written by Dana Calitri, Christopher A. Daughtry, Nina Meryl Ossoff and Kathy Maria Sommer....
Well, I was movin' at the speed of sound
Head spinnin', couldn't find my way around, and
Didn't know that I was goin' down, yeah, yeah
Where I been; well, it's all a blur
What I was lookin' for I'm not sure
Too late and didn't see it coming, yeah, yeah

Then I crashed into you
And I went up in flames
Could've been the death of me
But then you breathed your breath in me
Then I crashed into you
Like a runaway train
You will consume me
But I can't walk away

Somehow I couldn't stop myself
I just wanted to know how it felt
Too strong, I couldn't hold on, yeah, yeah
Now I'm just tryin' to make some sense
Out of how and why this happened
Where we're headed
There's just no knowin', yeah, yeah

And then I crashed into you
And I went up in flames
Could've been the death of me
But then you breathed your breath in me
Then I crashed into you
Like a runaway train
You will consume me
But I can't walk away

Your face, your eyes
Are burnt into me
You save me, you gave me
Just what I need
Oh, just what I need

And then I crashed into you
And I went up in flames
Could've been the death of me
But then you breathed your breath in me
Then I crashed into you
Like a runaway train
You will consume me
But I can't walk away

Then I crashed into you
And then I crashed into you
And then I crashed into you
And then I crashed into you
Then I crashed into you
Like a runaway train
You will consume me
But I can't walk away

    General CommentSimply put, even though you can live your life at such a fast pace, that doesn't necessarily mean that love won't find you when you least expect it. Love "crashed into" his life without much warning, and the power of it engulfed him. Whereas everything before him was so routine and rushed, this new love of his is ambiguous and you never know what's just around the corner. It's got him so consumed that he can't walk away.

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite song. I get the feeling that he's talking about how he was going down a bad road until he fell in love with someone, whether it be family, a girl, or god; but this person inevitably saves him from himself

    General CommentThis song is definitely about finding God. He was living his life out of control but then he crashed into God. I can't decide if the "crash" is figurative or literal. It of course could mean any bad experience that he had or it could mean that he was in an actual crash that should of killed him but God appeared to him and saved him. Either way he was captured by His grace and he couldn't walk away from Him.
    What he means by "your face and your eyes are burning to me" is that the face of God is impossible to see to a human but to trying to look is painful.
    This is an awesome song by Daughtry that actually takes a step away from all the cliche love songs.

    General CommentI find it interesting that some of you think this song is about God. Even more interesting is the fact that nobody has refuted it...
    I think the lyrics could definitely be interpreted that way; that's how my relationship with God is. I tried all the things the world said would help me fill the void — things that promised to make me happy and content — and in the end I was left with nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was all just a waste of time; an endless pursuit of temporary "remedies." My world came crashing down — and I crashed into Him. My life has never been the same since.
    This song could also just be an incredibly romantic song about someone he's totally and completely in love with, but the symbolism in the lyrics ("Where I've been, well it's all a blur. What I was looking for, I'm not sure," "you breathed your breath in me," "you will consume me") are just too close to the Christian experience to ignore.
    That's what makes a good song, lyrically: the ability to make one think about the possible meanings, or to shorten it a bit, to make one simply just *think.*

    Anyhow, I'm really impressed with Daughtry's album. I'd have to say "Home" is my favorite. That's a really feel-good song. It kind of tugs at the heart with a sense of yearning...
