"Obvious" as written by and Heather Holley....
Can you hear it in my voice
Was it something I let slip
Does the whole world know
Isn't it obvious?

I'm the one who's in control
Now I'm acting like a fool
Do my feelings show?
Is my face aglow?
Isn't it obvious?

That I don't know what I'm doing anymore
I'm feeling like a little girl
Caught up in emotions
I'm out of control
Isn't it obvious?

Do you see my hands they tremble
Wonder why I can't look you in the eyes
Don't know how long
I can keep this inside
Isn't it obvious?

That I don't know what I'm doing anymore
I'm feeling like a little girl
Caught up in emotions
I'm out of control
Isn't it obvious?

Suddenly these emotions are in control of my heart
Can you see it in my eyes
Every glance, every smile
Must give me away
And I feel so much I can't hide

That I don't know what I'm doing anymore
I'm feeling like a little girl
Caught up in emotions
I'm out of control
Isn't it obvious?

    General Commenti know what she feels !! when you love someone you don't know how bad you act but others can always see it !! so you have to be careful with what you do and say

    General CommentWhenever I've heard this song, I always thought or at least I always interpreted it as.. simply, a girl who is depressed.. but it can be about love, and most likely is.. I just took it a step deeper.

    General CommentI love singing this song! It`s so simple yet powerful. The vagueness of this song leaves it up for your own interpretation. Not once does it mention the word "love" or any of those cliche words that show up in songs. But to me, it does portray a girl that has fallen in love. =)

    General CommentYes, I think it is free to your interpretation. I remember Christina back then in 2000 saying that this was her favourite song in his first album. And I think it shows her voice alone with a piano showing how much of a soul and a power to get straight to our hearts through it, even when she was only 17 when she recorded it.
    To me it has to do with a girl sinking in depression for the first time, holding too much inside of her, and of course I did relate to that.
