"Heartbeat" as written by James Valentine, Elizabeth Anne Berg, Jason Lyon Boesel, Alex Greenwald and Stephen Michael Runion....
Who am I to say I want you back?
You were never mine to give away
I was waiting for a long, long time for you to feel the same
Who are you to look at me like that?
Is there something more you need to say?
I haven't loved you in a long, long time
so why do I feel this way?

Can you hear my heartbeat?
Please don't stand so close to me
Can you hear my heartbeat still beating strong?

Maybe I'm ashamed to want you back
Maybe I'm afraid you'll never stay
Thought I hated you a long, long time
There was my mistake

I just can't pretend that nothing's changed
Can you comprehend just what to say?
If you break my heart a second time
I might never be the same

Can you hear my heartbeat?
Please don't stand so close to me
Can you hear my heartbeat still beating strong?

I haven't loved you in a long, long time
Thought I hated you a long, long time
If you break my heart one more time
I won't ever be the same.

Can you hear my heartbeat?
Please don't stand so close to me
Can you feel my heartbeat still beating strong?

Can you hear my heartbeat?
When you stand so close to me
Can you hear my heartbeat still beating strong?

Still beating strong
Still beating strong

    My InterpretationIt's about having harbored feelings of love for someone who you were never in a relationship with because they didn't love you back. You waited for them to feel the same, but they never did and you began to resent/hate them. Now - after not having seen them in a while - you see them and the feelings that you'd thought you had gotten over come back.
