"Crush" as written by and Bernadette/clark Cosgrove....
Ah, crush, ah

I see ya blowin' me a kiss
It doesn't take a scientist
To understand what's going on, baby
If you see something in my eye
Let's not over analyze
Don't go too deep with it, baby (baby)

So let it be what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here's what I'll do
I'll play loose
Not like we have a date with destiny

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la

It's raising my adrenaline
You're banging on a heart of tin
Please don't make too much of it, baby (baby)
You say the word "forevermore"
That's not what I'm looking for
All I can commit to is "maybe" (maybe)

So let it be what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me (crazy over you and me)
Here's what I'll do
I'll pay loose
Not like we have a date with destiny

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la

Vanilla skies (vanilla skies)
White picket fences in your eyes
A vision of you and me

It's just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just some little thing
Not like everything I do
Depends on you

    General Commenti always find it to be too much of a denial. She keeps saying it's just a crush, but it sounds like she's just trying to hide how serious it is.

    At least, that's what my romantic mind thinks.

    General Commentgreat song! and I think I agree with asdfasdf123, it does seem like shes trying to say its a crush and it will go away but she is really falling for him

    My InterpretationWatching the video, it's not clear to me whether she has a crush on the driver or the other guy (who seems to be with the other girl). If it's the other guy, then that adds a whole new dimension to the meaning of the video and by extension the song: she has a crush on a friend who's involved with someone else.

    Would anyone care to chime in?

    General CommentI actually love this song. The meaning is very obvious but it's a catchy pop beat that I don't mind being stuck in my head. Too bad she was a one hit wonder.

    General CommentI agree with I Heart Thursday on the fact that it's meaning is obvious. The beat is very catchy. I personally love it...it makes me think of summer and the beach.

    General CommentI just heard this song on the radio, for the first time in probably 10 years or so. I still knew the tune exactly, which is a testament to its catchiness. It seems to be about a woman who is not entirely comfortable with the depth of her feelings in the relationship. Great tune, makes you wonder more about an artist when they make such a good song but are never heard from again.

    General CommentI love how this song has a catchy rhythm, and the way she sighs the lyrics is entrancing. Although the meaning is pretty obvious, it's about a guy who's trying to get too serious in a relationship when she's not sure she wants to commit to him. The only question I have is, "What does it mean when she says he's 'banging on a heart of tin'?" Maybe implying that she's like the tinman and doesn't have romantic feelings for him?

    General CommentThis is song played at Apple Bees when I was sitting with my crush. He looked at me and seriously (i hadn't told him but he HAS to know) he said to me "It's just a little crush". Needless to say I screamed water please...with LOTS of ice. Cause whoa!!! It's not just a crush...and when we have touched I do wanna faint-thank you very much!!!

    General Commentmaybe i'm overanalyzing, but, when i listen to this song, i get the feeling she's singing it to herself like she's trying to convince herself she doesn't have feelings for a guy when she really does. does anyone else think that?
