"Burned" as written by and Hilary Duff Fredrick Faird Nassar....
What's wrong with me?
I get lonely in a crowd
Everyone is smiling
But I made myself left out

I got an imaginary shield around me
But nobody's ever really getting through
I keep thinking that they're gonna break me free
But they never do (no)

[Chorus]
When somebody's knockin'
When somebody wants me
When somebody's trying to love me completely
I get scared
Don't know how it works
Will somebody save me
Or will I get burned?
Don't wanna get burned

Is there thickness in the air
Or are you heavy on my heart?
Why can't I just fit in?
Why can't I do what everyone else does?

People come around like a storm
When you least expect them to
For me I run for cover
When I should really face the truth

[Chorus]

What's wrong with me?
I get lonely in a crowd
Everyone is smiling
But I made myself left out

[Chorus :x2]

[Repeat: x3]
I get scared (I get scared)
Don't know how it works (Don't know how it works)
Will somebody save me? (Will somebody save me?)
Or will I get burned? (Or will I get burned?)

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG!!

    I dont know; but I honestly think this song is about her being very weary and guarded when it comes to relationships, and not wanting to get hurt. She blocks out her feelings in order to avoid the pain of perhaps rejection, heartbreak etc.

    I only say this cuz this applies to my situation, and it sounds pretty darn right.

    General CommentOh, sorry for double posting, but I have to add, the commitment phobia sounds right too; thats another thing I actually have too. I think.

    Good thinking :)
