  • Puttin' my defenses 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, yes 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 defenses up
    'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
    If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
    I think I'd have a heart attack
    I think I'd have a heart attack

    Never break a sweat for the other guys
    When you come around, I get paralyzed
    And every time 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 defenses up
    'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
    If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
    I think I'd have a heart attack
    I think I'd have a heart attack

    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 defenses up
    'Cause I don't wanna fall in love
    If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack
    I think I'd have a heart attack (heart attack)
    I think I'd have a heart attack
    Oh, I think I'd have a heart attack
