"Crush" as written by David Hodges, Emanuel Kiriakou and Jess Cates....
I hung up the phone tonight
Something happened for the first time deep inside
It was a rush, what a rush

'Cause the possibility
That you would ever feel the same way about me
It's just too much, just too much

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I've just got to know

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way you do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

Has it ever crossed your mind
When we're hanging, spending time girl, are we just friends?
Is there more, is there more?

See it's a chance we've gotta take
'Cause I believe that we can make this into something that will last
Last forever, forever

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I've just got to know

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way you do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
This crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy
Goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

    General CommentThis song is so relatable. "Do you catch a breath when I look at you?" I so know how that feels.

    General Commentlike others have said, this is a self explanatory song. it perfectly describes my situation. i want to be more than just friends with her and for her to feel the same way that i do about her, would be just overwhelming. pretty much every line describes how i feel, from being crazy or falling in love to thinking about her all the time. despite out distance, i still think it can work out and last forever.

    General CommentIt's about 2 friends and they are just friends, or best friend perhaps. They talk on the phone every night just as some friends may and eventually the guy starts to feel something for her. He doesn't know how to tell her because it could be coming on strong. Basically if you ever see 2 former friends, or best friends date then this song probably meant something to them before they started

    General CommentThis is the correct lyrics.


    I hung up the phone tonight,
    something happened for the first time, deep inside
    It was a rush, what a rush
    Cause the possibility that you would ever
    Feel the same way about me
    It's just too much, just too much
    Why do I keep running from the truth
    All I ever do is think about you
    You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized, and I just got to know


    Do you ever think, when you're all alone
    All that we can be, Where this thing can go
    Am I crazy or falling in love
    Is it really just another crush
    Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
    Are you holding back, like the way I do
    Cause I'm tryin, tryin to walk away
    But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away


    Has it ever crossed your mind when we were hanging
    Spending time girl, are we just friends
    Is there more, is there more
    See it's a chance we've gotta take
    Cause I believe we can make this into
    Something that will last forever, forever


    Do you ever think, when you're all alone
    All that we can be, Where this thing can go
    Am I crazy or falling in love
    Is it really just another crush
    Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
    Are you holding back, like the way I do
    Cause I'm tryin, tryin to walk away
    But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away


    Why do I keep running from the truth
    All I ever think about is you
    You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
    And I just got to know


    Do you ever think, when you're all alone
    All that we can be, Where this thing can go
    Am I crazy or falling in love
    Is it really just another crush
    Do you catch a breath, when I look at you
    Are you holding back, like the way I do
    Cause I'm tryin, tryin to walk away
    But I know this crush ain't goin away, goin away
