"Boom" as written by Janelle Amber Martinez, Jessica Marie Martinez, Stefanie J. Ridel, Jonathan Rotem, E. Cager, L. Davis, Rachel P. De Rougemont, P. Kline and J. Stone....
I'm getting myself in something I don't wanna
I'm getting caught up in him but I don't wanna
I'm getting off track and I can't control a thing, a thing

I'm telling myself it's not a good idea
But the more I hesitate the more I fall for him
I'm tryin' to erase his face from my memory

And then a boom shalaka, he's walkin' up to me
Boom shalaka, he starts to talk to me
Boom shalaka, my heart skips
Boom shalaka laka, boom, boom

The more I hang there the more I get wrapped up in him
Imagine myself in the chair I was sittin' in
And every little thing he said comin' back to me, to me

The more I get scared of losin' I'm afraid to say
Where can I go? At the same time it excites me
Gotta get him outta my head, get on with me

And then a boom shalaka, he's walkin' up to me
Boom shalaka, he starts to talk to me
Boom shalaka, my heart skips a boom
Shalaka laka, boom, boom

Boom shalaka, eyes come in contact
Boom shalaka, starin' me down talk
Boom shalaka, my heart skips
Boom shalaka laka, ah

He make my head go boom, boom
He make my breath go shaka laka
And then my heart goes boom, boom
And everything goes shaka laka

I tell myself, no I'm not gonna do this
I promise myself, no I'm not gonna do this
Doesn't matter what he says
I know he's no good for me, no, no, no, no

And then a boom shalaka, he's walkin' up to me
Boom shalaka, he starts to talk to me
Boom shalaka, my heart skips
Boom shalaka laka, boom, boom

Boom shalaka, eyes come in contact
Boom shalaka, starin' me down talk
Boom shalaka, my heart skips
Boom shalaka laka, ah, ah

He makes my heart go, ah, ah
My heart, my heart

    General CommentSeriously? First one to comment? :)

    Well...that's depressing. This is a good song! Though the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, I think this song is more than just a girl fighting to NOT (which is close to a first)fall in love with someone she knows she's not supposed to be with...

    I think this song is about forbidden love. You know, "I tell myself I'm not going to do this," and "But the more I hesitate the more I fall for him..." I think this is someone's feeling when they trying to fight the fall into love, when they know they're love is forbidden...
