BackgroundEdit

"Heart Attack" was originally recorded by Nikki Williams for her upcoming debut album. However, Williams felt that something was not right and therefore gave the song to Demi to record it. Pia Toscano was also interested in the song, but it was not conclusive. Demi's version has some lyrics altered, and has the dubstep break removed. You can listen to the demo here:

Williams said the song was written two years prior its release. She explained: "At the time I was going through some relationship stuff, and I was just so depressed, so when I got into the session I thought, 'You know what? I’m gonna pour it all out there, and get it off my chest.'.

Songwriters and ProducersEdit

"Heart Attack" was written by Mitch Allan, Jason Evigan, Sean Douglas, Nikki Williams, Aaron Phillips and Demi Lovato. It was produced by The Suspex (Mitch Allan and Jason Evigan).

Music VideoEdit

The video begins with interspersed closeups of Lovato wearing dark makeup, with mirrored images of her head and face rising out of black liquid.[citation needed] A different-looking Lovato in white clothes with less makeup, hair pulled back, and hands painted black then starts singing, against a white background with varying horizontal or vertical black dripping lines. At the bridge it then cuts back to the darker version singing in a lobby with her band in the background (the same lobby as in Daughtry's Crawling Back to You),against a dark background with straight white lines, interlaced with shots of black ink running down white walls. The video won "International Video of the Year - Artist" at the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards.

The music video has almost 80 million hits on VEVO.

LyricsEdit

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, I’m never good enough

When I don’t care

I can play ‘em like a Ken doll

Won’t wash my hair

Then make 'em bounce like a basketball

But you make me wanna act like a girl

Paint my nails and wear high heels

Yea 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

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 (x3)

Never break a sweat for the other guys

When you come around, I get paralyzed

And everytime I try to be myself

It comes out wrong like a cry for help

It’s just not fair

Pain’s more trouble than love 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

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 (x3)

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 take off and I run

I’m flying too close to the sun

And I burst into flames

You make me glow, but I cover up

Won’t let it show, so I’m

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 (x2)

I think I'd have a heart attack


I think I'd have a heart attack (x2)
