Burned

Songfacts®:

  • Alyssa penned this song in her bedroom after breaking up with her first proper boyfriend. She told 4music: "It's really embarrassing, but it's one of my favorite songs on the album, and it means a lot to me. And it shows people who I am - not only as an artist, but a person. And I think that would connect me to people."
  • Alyssa told 4Music that not only has her former boyfriend heard the song, "but he knows that the entire album is about him. And he tried to come back."
