Heart Attack Lyrics

Puttin’ my defences 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,...

    This song is about a girl who was heartbroken and pretended not to take love seriously, when really she was just afraid to fall in love again. Then she meets this perfect guy who makes her act unlike herself, and suddenly she realizes, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, am I falling in love again??!!!" and she takes a step back. In the song, she is obviously struggling with herself ("feels so good but you know it hurts!") , becuse she knows if she falls in love, she will be oblivious to pain that might come at any time.

    It is about a girl and she is always saying that she will never fall in love. She is "putting her defenses up" because she doesn't want to get hurt again. Then, she meets a boy that she really really likes. She falls in love with him even though she doesn't want to. Instead of thinking about him she wants to paint her nails and wear high heels. She keeps trying to avoid the fact that she is in love until the point that she is so stressed that she might have a heart attack.

    This song is about a girl who is falling in love for the first time. She's scared because she's never been in love before, and worries that all the emotion she isn't prepared for will give her a heart attack.
    At this point, she feels so good around her crush (you make me glow) but covers it up because she doesn't feel quite ready for a relationship yet. She knows she can flirt but is holding back and limiting herself to painting her nails and wearing perfume instead of flirting.
    She wants her crush to know that she likes him, and deep down she desires a relationship with the guy, but getting into a relationship is unknown territory and she knows it's probably for the best if she plays it safe and just pretends she doesn't like him. So she puts her defenses up because she doesn't want to fall in love. Through all this, it's really hard for her because the guy is desirable and she doesn't want to lose him.

    She is in love with a person (no specific gender cause she doesn't specify) who doesn't love her back yet he is still in love and is expressing her feelings to this person. As a person who has been in love with someone for a long time now I can relate to this song alot so thank you Demi!!

    How I interpreted this song is like the girl has a crush who she really likes, but she cannot be in an affair with him.

    My interpretation of this song is. She’s had her fair share of heartbreaks in the past. But this one guy makes her nervous and feels like she’s not good enough for him. So she starts to change herself to “become better” wearing high heels, perfume, nail varnish and “”acting like a girl” He makes her happy and glow but she hides it and becomes nervous and she doesn’t trust him and she wants to run for the hills basically

    The represent to be afraid of being falling in love with somebody else because sometimes people had been representing the person you love

    It's kinda like yandere simulator but instead of killing people to get the guy, she doesn't want to start a relationship with him. She also doesn't want anyone else to have him.

    She's young and falling in love for the first time. All the other crushes she's had were easy to get because she could manipulate them into wanting her and weren't serious; but this guy means so much to her, and she's trying extra hard to impress him. At the same time, these new feelings terrify her, and even though she wants to be around him (you make me glow), she's thinks she'll end up hurt (I'm flying too close to the sun). The meaning is clear (as they usually are in Demi's songs): I don't wanna fall in love, if I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack. Figuratively speaking and possibly literal as well, because it's a lot of emotion, stress, and responsibility. The end of her young, carefree life.

    my interpretation may be different, but i what i really think is that she really likes this guy she can't get. she has no problem with other guys, but she feels like she's not good enough for this one guy. She starts changing for him, and can't take it anymore. she can't take it if he won't like her back, she can't bear it, and she's scared she'll have a heart attack, so she's trying not to fall for him, because she's scared that she can't take it anymore, or get a heart attack.

    I think she's afraid to fall in love and trust a man because of we relationship with her biological father. That's scars a person and it can make a girl fear trusting men because she trusted her father to love her but instead he abused her. She fears that if she puts her trust in another man hell do the same thing.

    This is how you don't have to face the world alone. It's about how a friend is willing to help guide you through your bad times. That you don't have to rely just on yourself. You have true friends who you can trust and believe in without worries. A friend that will be there from "beginning to end" that helps you get up when you're down.

    This song is about how she is in love with some guy,but is afraid to get hurt again...so she denies all those feelings that she has for him and is telling herself that she won't be in that situation again.But their love is so strong that it is causing her to think that she might get a heart attack.Awwww,so sad...just follow your heart!!!!!!!!!

    It is kind of sad, she has a guy that she is totally in love with but she is afraid to love him because she'll have a heart attack.
