Hunter Hayes newest song 'I Want Crazy' is the first song from his yet to be released album. While I was watching Hunter on the Academy of Country Music awards Sunday night, I began wondering "where is Hunter Hayes headed in his young career?" By the sounds on this lead single, Hayes clearly wants to show some maturity and restraint. By not letting his vocals wander in falsetto land, (like he's done in his last three singles.) There are a lot of lyrics that Hunter fits into 3 minutes and 57 seconds. It's a toe tapping, uptempo, begging for a good time song. Check it out.

I’m booking myself a one-way flight
I gotta see the color in your eyes
And tellin’ myself I’m gonna be alright
Without you baby is a waste of time, ooh
Yeah, our first date, girl, the seasons change
That got washed away in a summer rain
You can’t undo a fall like this
‘Cause love don’t know what distance is
Yeah, I know it’s crazy

But I don’t want good and I don’t want good enough
I want can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love
Front porch and one more kiss
It don’t make sense to anybody else
Who cares if you’re all I think about?
I’ve searched the world and I know now
It ain’t right and if you ain’t lost your mind
Yeah, I don’t want easy, I want crazy
Are you with me baby, let’s be crazy

Yeah, I wanna be scared, don’t wanna know why
I wanna feel good, don’t have to be right
The world makes all kinds of rules for love
I see you gotta let it do what it does
I don’t want just another hug and a kiss goodnight
Catchin’ up calls and a date sometimes
A love that revels and we still believe
We’re the kind of crazy that people wish that they could be
I know we’re crazy

But I don’t want good and I don’t want good enough
I want can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love
Front porch and one more kiss
It don’t make sense to anybody else
Who cares if you’re all I think about?
I’ve searched the world and I know now
It ain’t right and if you ain’t lost your mind
Yeah, I don’t want easy, I want crazy
Are you with me baby, let’s be crazy

But I don’t want good and I don’t want good enough
I want can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love
Front porch and one more kiss
It don’t make sense to anybody else
Who cares if you’re all I think about?
I’ve searched the world and I know now
It ain’t right and if you ain’t lost your mind

Yeah, I don’t want easy, I want crazy
Yeah, look at us baby
Tonight the midnight rules are breaking
There’s no such thing as wild enough
Or maybe we just think too much
Who needs to play it safe in love?
Let’s be crazy

Who cares if we’re crazy?
We gotta be crazy
I know that we’re crazy
So let’s be crazy
