Demi Lovato – Heart Attack lyrics

Putting my defenses up
Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack

Never put my love out on the line
Never said yes to the right guy
Never had trouble getting what I want
But when it comes to you I'm never good enough

When I don't care
I can play him like a Ken doll
Won't wash my hair
Then make him bounce like a basketball

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear high heels
Yes you, make me so nervous that I just can't hold your hand


You make me glow
But I cover up, won't let it show

So I'm putting my defenses up
Cause I don't wanna fall in love

If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack

Never break a sweat for the other guys
When you come around I get paralyzed
And every time I try to be myself
It comes out wrong like a cry for help

It's just not fair
Brings more trouble than it all is worth
I gasp for air
It feels so good, but you know it
hurts

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear perfume
For you, make me so nervous that I just can't hold your hand

You make me glow
But I cover up, won't let it show

So I'm putting my defenses up
Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack

The feelings got lost in my lungs
They're burning, I'd rather be numb
And there's no one else to blame
So scared I'll take off and run
I'm flying too close to the sun
And I'll burst into
flames

You make me glow
But I cover up, won't let it show
So I'm putting my defenses up
Cause I don't wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack
Heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack - tack
Oh I think I'd have a heart attack
I think I'd have a heart attack

    I believe the song is about being scared to fall in love because the person was hurt before. But this person realized they were falling in love again and tried to stop themself from falling in love and the fear (heart attack). This person doesn't want to feel the emotion called love and would rather be numb to them. But, it seems to me, in the end they are losing the internal war. They keep repeating they won't, in the hopes that if they say that they won't fall in love... they won't. But the self-hypnosis might not have worked because of how many times they repeated it to convince themself. That's just how I saw it. To each his own opinion, right? So don't judge. That's just how I perceive it.

    This song makes me really miss my crush because this is basically the definition of how I feel around him. I litterally can't breathe around him. I actually play basketball and I am a total jock but I literally painted my nails did my hair, wore makeup and heels and purfume. But now I live in california and he is in kentucky and any time I think about him I almost cry because I miss him so much. He was also the only crush I had that liked me too. O s**t. I am crying now. I am such a dweeb. I can't believe I am crying. I am already depressed and thinking about jackson only makes it worse. I would have been overjoyed if I managed to have jackson jones as my first boyfriend. I was always terrified of two things once I realized I liked him. 1) being friend zoned, and 2) moving away from him. Now I only have one to go. This depression thing sucks. I was diagnosed with depression and adhd about two months ago. How did I get into all this when I was just planning on saying this reminds me of my crush. O well. I guess once I find a way to let out allof these overwhelming feelings that control my daily life I guess it just flows out of me. Ok well I put too much effort into that to erase it so imma post it. Thanks if you read this much and diddnd pass out from boerdom after readging that much about my sad depressing life. Oh no. Not again. I am leaving before I leave you with another paragraph. Because I am not shure you or this type box can take anymore. Bye.

    Well this song, for me. Is a song for encouragement, for not to fall in love. This song encourages me to not to fall in love with someone who you just met. Cause I really don't like to fall in love or crush on him or something like that, it just make sense. It's just because the people around me keeps teasing me that I have a crush on him even I don't like him for a fact, but until my feelings got develop and I keep on telling to myself not to f all in love. So I started to listen this music and it keeps me reminding me not to fall in love and this song is really good and its more than awesome!
