Heartbeat

Ba-bum, ba-dum

Can you feel it?

Can you hear it?

It's my heart

The organ that keeps me alive

Though sometimes I wonder

Does how I feel affect it?

When I'm sad does it slow down?

When I'm happy does it speed up?

Does it skip a beat when I'm surprised?

It does, doesn't it?

So that means if I want to die

My heart will just stop, right

If I want it enough

I will stop living

So why does my heart still beat?

I know my feelings are true

Should I take it as some kind of sign?

I feel my heart beat slow as I'm sad

But it never stops

It steadily beats

Ba-dum, ba-dum

Does this mean I like the pain of life?

That can't be true, right?

Because I just want it to end

I want my heart to stop beating

I want to cry myself to death

Why must I endure this torture?

It hurts so much

The burning in my heart never lets up

But it still beats

Why?

Why?

Maybe it just goes to show that hearts are love

They love you so much they refuse to let go

Even when you want nothing more than to fall

Ba-dum, ba-dum
