"Obsessed" as written by and Roger Lavoie....
Why do I just lie awake and think of you?
I need some sleep.
Tomorrow I have things to do.
Every time I close my eyes I see your face,
So I try to read, but all I do is lose my place.

Am I obsessed with you?
I do my best not to want you.
But I do all the time.
I do all the time.

I just had to call you up and say hello.
I know it's three a.m.
And I saw you awhile ago.
But I still had this aching need to hear your voice
To know your there
I don't seem to have any choice.

Am I obsessed with you?
I do my best not to want you.
But I do all the time.
I do all the time.

Oh yeah.
I'm so sorry I just had to wake you up.
I feel so lonely by myself.
Is this the way it feels when you're in love?
Or is this something else?
Yeah

Yeah

Am I obsessed with you?
I do my best not to want you.
But I do all the time.
I do all the time.

Oh yeah
But I do all the time, I want you all the time.
Am I obsessed with you?

    My InterpretationFull lyrics -

    Why do I just lie awake and think of you?
    I need some sleep
    Tomorrow I have things to do
    Everytime I close my eyes, I see your face
    So I try to read
    But all I do is lose my place

    Am I obsessed with you?
    I do my best not to want you
    But I do all the time
    I do all the time

    I decide to call you up and say hello
    I know it's 3AM
    And I saw you a while ago
    But I still had this ache in me
    To hear your voice, to know you're there
    I don't seem to have any choice

    Am I obsessed with you?
    I do my best not to want you
    But I do all the time
    I do all the time, ooh yeah

    I'm so sorry I just had to wake you up
    I feel so lonely by myself
    Is this the way it feels when you're in love?
    Or is it something else?
    Yeah...

    Am I obsessed with you?
    I do my best not to want you
    But I do all the time
    Want you all the time, ooh yeah

    But I do all the time
    I want you all the time
    Am I obsessed with you?

    General Commentew. i love miley and her music, but the songs on her new cd suck. they have no meaning, and the songs that could have meaning have a horrible beat. just ugh. Theo nly song I like is Before THe Storm, and that's it. jeez. I mean, she's awesome and all, and my thoughts haven't changed about her, but I can't help but think "what the hell happened?"

    Memoryi accidentally downloaded this at my friends insistence, he meant Meriah Carey but i misheard and thought he said Miley Cyrus. i like the song and felt it was underrated.

    My OpinionI love Miley, especially her music and this song relaxes me. I dunno, but that "I try to read" line makes me wanna read xD Miley is wonderful performer and nobody can deny it. She may not have the best, clearest voice but she sure shows what she can do.
    Love her <3

    General CommentThis song is about a girl (the narrat0r) asking herself is she 0bsessed with s0meb0dy because she wants that pers0n ALL the time, that pers0n is 0n her mind day in and day 0ut. But, she still tries her hardest n0t t0 want that pers0n, but she d0es ALL the time. She d0es everything in her p0wer t0 n0t think 0f him, but she d0es.

    0H! and I can n0t understand why pe0ple despise Miley s0 much, she is just a teenager, just like us. give her a break and accept her. She really is a g00d singer and plays g00d music.

    General CommentIn this song, Miley desperately needs a certain person, and feels guilty that she needs them that much. She tries not to want them, but she does anyway. This song is sweet ;)

    Song MeaningMiley Cyrus aiming this at Nick Jonas, she can't help but wan't him all the time. She is saying that she needs him and can't be without him.
