Addicted

Album: Breakaway (2005)
  • This is one of Kelly Clarkson's most intense songs. It's about a woman in the throes of addiction which is slowly destroying her, but it makes her feel amazing and gratifying when she's high. It can apply to substance addiction or to a destructive relationship. >>
