"Heart Attack" as written by Nereus Joseph, Kenny Edgehill, Jah Mirikle, Winston Matthews, Lloyd Mcdonald, George Hayes and Rudolph Dennis....
I've cracked My temper's spat Hot coal, fire and acid jack I've been used I feel abused Something you've done has lit my fuse And I take my theories back Maybe Karma ain't all that Coz you do whatever you please Everybody else is left to bleed

You're a heart attack Your heart is black It's whack Your mind is jacked How did anybody ever get like that? You're a heart attack You stabbed me in the back If you pull your punches jack I'm taking everything back You hit my harder than a heart attack

We used to stick together You and me stay that way forever But now to my surprise You've become what we despised What's that they're telling me? Sleeping with the enemy! Going down on dirty sheets Didn't nobody tell you how to be discreet?

You're a heart attack And your heart is black It's whack You're mind is stacked Tell me how did anybody ever get like that? You're a heart attack You stabbed me in the back If you pull your punches jack I'm taking everything back You hit me harder than a heart attack

You're dancing while I'm dying Laughing while I'm crying Denying the mess you made Your true colors are clashing This airplane is crashing It's smashing Were you even there? Coz I don't think you care About anyone but yourself now

Go run but you can't hide Actions they can't be denied Once thing keeps buggin' me Tell me how you sleep at night I need to set things right Shake things up Modify Change plans and break the rules Play the game like you do fool

You're a heart attack And your heart is black It's whack You're mind is stacked Tell me how did anybody ever get like that? You're a heart attack You stabbed me in the back If you pull your punches jack I'm taking everything back You hit me harder than a heart attack

    General CommentI love this song. Just this total rage you get yourself into when you realize you've been betrayed by a close friend. Anyone who's had that happen can really get this.

    General Comment"you're dancing while I'm dying, laughing while I'm crying, denying the mess you made" Oh yes, who hasn't been mistreated by the person you used to trust the most...so full of dissapointment and anger, I just love it.

    General CommentI'm a big Savage Garden and Darren Hayes fan but I think this song falls in the "it's so bad it's good" category. While Insatiable really hits the pop/R&B sound Heart Attack just falls flat.

    I think ultimately the album Spin shows that Daniel Jones is missed.

    General CommentI dissagree that this song falls flat and that Daniel made Darren. I love solo-Darren because his genre changes slightly from album to album, and he really writes what he's feeling.
    But anyway, this song is very enjoyable to listen to, and the words are cleverly written as per usual. The interpertations already written were a lot of the same feelings I have on the song. Well done guys.

    General CommentYes, I disagree with jbisasky as well. I think Savage Garden and Darren Hayes as a solo artist are just different things, that cannot be compared. I love both but that was a duo, and now we've got Darren on his own doing what it comes to his mind, and he's obviously evolving and experimenting. But I haven't found anything dissapointing or flat with him.

    General CommentObviously, it is a very angry song about backstabbing and realising how heartless that person can be. I actually thought it was directed at Daniel Jones during the Savage Garden break up, though this song can apply to many different situations.

    and wow. I have realised that Gabigs and Misseverus have commented on all the Darren Hayes songs. Well done lol.
