The Heart Wants What It Wants Lyrics

You got me sippin' on something
I can't compare to nothing
I've ever known, I'm hoping
That after this fever I'll survive
I know I'm acting a bit crazy
Strung out, a little bit hazy
Hand over heart, I'm praying
That I'm gonna make it out...

    This song is about her ex boyfriend Justin Bieber. In this song she says "The bed´s getting cold and your not here. The future that we hold is so unclear. But I´m not alive until you come. And I´ll bet the odds against it all."
    Here she is trying to deliver that sometimes she couldn´t count on Bieber and that she never knew what was going to happen in the future. But without him a part of her life was missing. She also says,"There's a million reasons why I should give you up. But the heart wants what it wants." And here she is just stating that although sometimes Justin brings her down she still loves him. The rest of the song is just saying how Justin has treated her and that she feels broken and alone for the bad things he has done, but above that she did love him.

    It's about being addicted to someone when you know they don't love you and never will but you hope someday they will.

    I’ve been recording with my band because it’s been the best of recording this session and that song projected into my music and theater to do theater

    she got addicted to him such that even if he disappears she still waits and such that eventhough he does something wrong she blames herself.

    It's about a person who love someone, who never would love you back, but you hope that someday they will.

    Affair ....he’s trying to convince her it’s wrong and she doesn’t care. The lover is addictive to her. He pulls back and makes her wait. She’s not alive until she talks to him. Totally an affair.

    This song seems to be about Justin Bisbee and how even though she should have broken up with him for so many reasons she couldnt because she loved him no matter what he said it how he treated her

    Selena Gomez openly said this song was about her former and now boyfriend Justin Bieber. This song says so much about what went on with their love. This song is so emotional and powerful. Even though I support Jelena does not mean I am biased. I'm just saying this song says alot.

    When I was on, when I was on stage and I was thinking of...
    I felt like I know, I know him though
    And I know that, and I know his heart
    And I know what he wouldn't do to hurt me
    But I didn't realize that I-I-I feeling so confident
    Feeling so great about myself
    And then it just be completely shattered
    By one thing, by something so stupid
    But then you make me feel crazy
    You make me feel like it's my fault
    I was in pain
