Oh, when I turned five
I got a piece of cake,
The corner with the rose.
I leaned in close,
And I told him
That I loved him,
And he ran.
It made my heart stop.
It made my heart stop.

Now I understand
That my heart
It doesn't stop,
Even though
It feels like it could explode.
Now I understand
That my heart
It beats on and on and on.

And in the afternoon
I put on my best swimming suit,
And spied across the pool
At all my friends,
But I sat
On the steps,
In the shallow end alone
Because my heart stopped.
It made my heart stop.

I didn't get what I expected.
Reached out
And I got rejected.
I couldn't have it
Cause I checked it off.
Felt sad,
I didn't understand it.
Why would this happen to me?
But my heart,
It didn't stop,
It beat on and on and on.

Now I understand
That my heart doesn't stop,
Even though
It feels like it could explode.
Now I understand
That my heart,
It beats on and on and on.
