"Heartbeat Song" as written by David Hyde, David Craig, Barry Hyde and Ross Millard....
When we meet, I listen to your heartbeat
I can hear the rhythm and the tone
Every time I listen to my heart
It's like a cartwheel in my head, but my legs are made of lead

[Chorus]
Your heartbeat song
It's good, but it's not the one
We're singing out of tune
But I still want to sing with you

When we speak, I find it hard to think straight
Especially when there's no one else around
When we touch, it's impossible to concentrate
Bright lights everywhere, like I'm floating in the air

[Chorus]

Your heartbeat song
It's good, but it's not the one
We're singing out of tune
But I still want to sing with you
But I still want to sing with you

If you care, we can share sometime
If we spare ourselves tonight

When we meet, I listen to your heartbeat
I can hear the rhythm and the tone
Every time I listen to my heart
It's like a cartwheel in my head, but my legs are made of lead

When we speak, I find it hard to think straight
Especially when there's no one else around
When we touch, it's impossible to concentrate
Bright lights everywhere, like I'm floating in the air

[Chorus]

Your heartbeat song
It's good, but it's not the one
We're singing out of tune
But I still want to sing with you
Still want to sing with you
Still want to sing with you
I still want to sing with you

    General CommentI respectfully disagree, and I'm pretty surprised no one else has commented on this one. Not even to make the point I'm about to make, but just in general.

    I think that there's a significant other or person of interest in his life. He has some sort of feelings for them, but he just knows that this person isn't "the one." Hence "your heartbeat song; it's good but it's not the one." And as I interpret it, this isn't because of fighting or disagreements or falling out; he just KNOWS that this isn't the right person for him. It's that feeling that he describes so well as just being "out of tune" with another person.
    But the song is about how although he knows deep down that this person isn't perfect for him and that there's no significant future for them being together, he still wants to stay with them (or as he puts it, "sing" with them). The fact that this relationship isn't the everlasting kind that so many people are looking for doesn't change the fact that he's happy with this other person.

    General CommentLove it.

    Meaning should be fairly obvious. It's about falling in love with someone
    and all the feeling that go along with that.

    I really dig the line about "singing out of tune". It threw me for a loop the first
    time I heard it, but I realized it's meant that they're singing out of tune to something
    on the radio, and it's not the same as the "heartbeat song", but he still want to sing
    with them anyway.

    General CommentI agree with mkay.

    Also: do you think the line 'it's good but it's not the one' is a direct reference to 8os/90s quiz show Catch Phrase? Roy Walker always used to say "Ah that's a good answer but it's not the one". Or am I reading too much into it?
