"Heart Attack" as written by Benjamin Levin, Tremaine Neverson and Rico Love....
Turn the lights on! Oh wo-oh, oh wo-oh

We share something so common
Still so rare, and I'm in awe
Never been here before
So high, we're still climbing
Even here inside these walls
Breaking each others hearts
And we don't care 'cause we're so

In too deep, can't think about giving it up
But I never knew love would feel like a heart attack
It's killing me, swear I never cried so much
'Cause I never knew love would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

Oh wo-oh, never never never knew love (Oh wo-oh)
Would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

All the times when I know I should be smiling
Seem to be the time that I frown the most
Can't believe that we're still survivin'
Cause I'm slowly breaking down
Even when I hold you close
And if I lose you
I'm afraid I would lose who
Who I gave my love to
That's the reason I stay around
Even though I fell way

In too deep, can't think about giving it up
But I never knew love would feel like a heart attack
It's killing me, swear I never cried so much
'Cause I never knew love would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

Oh wo-oh, never never never knew love (Oh wo-oh)
Would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

And it hurts,
Cause I wanna leave, and you wanna leave
But the love keeps us together

And if I lose you
I'm afraid I would lose who
Who I gave my love to
That's the reason I stay around
Even though I fell way

In too deep, can't think about giving it up
But I never knew love would feel like a heart attack
It's killing me, swear I never cried so much
Cause I never knew love would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

Oh wo-oh, never never never knew love (Oh wo-oh)
Would hurt this f***in' bad
The worst pain that I ever had

    My InterpretationHere's what I think this somg means:

    The song talks about this guy who still loves this girl (who he may have been with or still is with her idk which). While he still loves her he wants to not love her, but he's scared that, "I'm afraid I would lose who, Who I gave my love to" meaning the guy he became cus of her or the guy he was with her. He feels like he's being drawn in with their love even when the actual relationship may be going downhill, "And it hurts, Cause I wanna leave, and you wanna leave, But the love keeps us together."

    I think I can relate to this song because me and my ex remained friends and we see a lot of each other. Even now when I see him I get these same feelings I had when we were going out, but I know it's over. It's like we can't just stop seeing each other because we did love each other a lot. I don't know how he may feel, but for me it's like I don't want to loose him because we had so many happy memories together while going out. I want to say that I'm fully over him, but because I still think of him with love idk if I am. And here is where trey's part about love being a heart attack may come in. You love someone, don't want them, want them back, or don't know if you want them which causes strain on the heart, hence heart attack.

    My OpinionNice Insight LillyPad. Personally i think this song is about the feelings of love if the initial crushes or infatuations that fuels a relationship go away. Like if you really love the person for who they are but you aren't as attracted to them anymore. They may be more interested in somebody else but they don't want to hurt each other or give up what they have. I think this is a powerful song that talks about a message I've never heard expressed.

    General Comment(I Believe) This song is about 2 people that obviously love each other, but the special spark in the relashionship has faded. They both wanted to leave one another, but mentally cant because they don't want to leave what they had, and they love each other far too much to leave the relashionship. Stated , this is obviously hurting ones heart, he's decided to use the phrase "heart attack"
