and in a heartbeat
the room turns from water into ice
and in a heartbeat
everything you hear is now suddenly so nice
and in a heartbeat
i can feel us falling closer apart
and in a heartbeat
i feel like the finish line -is just the start

and in a heartbeat
he goes and pulls the trigger
and in a heartbeat
all our lives are just changed forever
and in a heartbeat
i'm the man, she's the beast
and in a heartbeat
your life is gone, may you rest in peace

and can't you recognize that thing in your chest when life is just choking you to death
can't you tell the difference between true love and a screaming freight train
you wanna know the secret to living a full and happy life
it's that -you're not the only one who's drowning,
so am i.

and in a heartbeat
this life just aint enough
and in a heartbeat
your tough cookie, aint so tough
and in a heartbeat
this world it comes crashing through your door
and in a heartbeat
you gotta decide can you take any more?

can't you recognize that thing in your chest when life is just choking you to death
and can't you tell the difference between true love and a screaming freight train
you wanna know the secret to living a full and happy life
it's that you're not the only one who's drowning,
baby -so am i.
(repeat)

and in a heartbeat
this life is just gone.
