"Critical" as written by Joacim Persson, Niclas Molinder, Johan Alkenas and Geraldo Sandell....
There's a storm coming up and I gotta prepare myself
'Cause this feeling's getting stronger everyday
Somethings creeping inside
Everything is about to change
Gotta face the fact that I can't walk away

This critical, I am feeling helpless
So hysterical, and this can't be healthy
I can't even sleep when you're not with me
Baby, you're the air I breathe

This is critical, yeah
So stuck on you

Used to have everything figured out
But it's different now
When you came, you saw
You conquered my heart

It's your laugh and your smile
Wanna stay for a little while
I don't wanna go
I just want you in my arms

This critical, I am feeling helpless
So hysterical, and this can't be healthy
I can't even sleep when you're not with me
Baby, you're the air I breathe

This is critical, yeah
So stuck on you

Used to run and hide
Used to bend our love
But I can't escape this time
Oh no

This critical, I am feeling helpless
So hysterical, and this can't be healthy
I can't even sleep when you're not with me
Baby, you're the air I breathe

This is critical, ooh

Baby, it's so critical (critical)
It's so critical (critical)
Yeah and I like it
Baby, it's so critical (critical)
It's so critical (critical)
Yeah
So stuck on you

    Song MeaningThe couple's broken up, but the boy wants her back. By saying about a storm coming, he's referring to inside him. He feels so much emotion inside it's like a storm. He wants her back in his arms moore than anything and won't forget about her. Obviously the girl broke up with him, perhaps her feelings for him faded.

    General CommentI personally don't see the "couple's broken up" image.

    I actually think it's about falling in love, but after not ever feeling committed before, and even being afraid and running away from love in other relationships, he's realizing he's passed a point of no return. It's become serious, critical, and it's scary but it's unstoppable and wondrous.

    General CommentI think it's about falling so hard in love when trying so hard not fall in love. This song made me a permanent fan. I just love that line, "It's your laugh and your smile, wanna stay for a little while?"

    General CommentThis song about being afraid to jump in and fall in love. It's critical, not just emotionally, but this boy is claiming he needs her to be alive at all

    General Commentbest song in the world. heard it from Nick Jonas and I love it can't stop listening to it.. its like it has something to do with being afriad to fall in love because he doesnt wanna be heartbroken, and its like his relationship is critical.. its sad but at the same time understandable
