David Archuleta – ‘Crush’ Music & Lyrics

"Crush" is the debut single by David Archuleta, American Idol seventh season runner-up. Following the song's digital release onto the U.S. iTunes store last August 12, 2008, the song rose to the #1 spot on iTunes in less than 24 hours, dethroning Rihanna's "Disturbia." It is also Archuleta's first song to reach the top spot on iTunes.

Here are some rave reviews from Wikipedia regarding David’s debut single:

“Crush” has been met with positive reviews by many critics. Michael Slezak of Entertainment Weekly called the song “surprisingly good!”, as well as “hip and contemporary.” He stated, “David adroitly walks the line between giving his core fans their fill of vocal runs while showing enough restraint that he won’t automatically alienate non-Idol-loving listeners.”

Blender Magazine, despite not liking Archuleta during his time on American Idol, also praised the song, giving it three and a half out of five stars and claiming to have “just listened to the thing six times in a row and we’re not terribly angry about spin seven.” They also liked that the song seemed perfectly crafted for radio, saying, “Songs like “Crush” are great because they sound as if the radio immaculately conceived them.”

Ken Barnes of USA Today liked the “effortless glides into falsetto and some rousing moments in the bridge and chorus”, but also said it “tends to plod”, and “could become pretty tedious with repetition.”

Crush
(David Archuleta)

I hang 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 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 aint goin away, goin away

Has it ever cross you mind
When were hangin, 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 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 aint 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 aint goin away, goin away
