heart skips a beat lyrics – lenka

“heart skips a beat”

heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat

my heart is playing tricks on me
and it’s building bricks on me
i can’t break through
and i can’t face you

my world is turning slowly now
but it’s burning up somehow
i need some time
to know what’s right

‘cause it’s only in the quiet that i feel some relief
i’m trying hard not to resist the joy
don’t listen to me i’m being paranoid
i might try hard but it’s too hard to avoid

my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
my heart is always first to know
and as the feeling grows
i can’t deny push those thoughts aside
my world is full of loveliness
but i focus on the stress

my heart says “go” but my brain says “no”
and it’s only in the quiet that i hear myself breathe

i’m trying hard not to resist the joy
don’t listen to me i’m being paranoid
i might try hard but it’s too hard to avoid

my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat

oh i know this time ’cause it’s physical
my blood has stopped and i am breathless as well
but i need a minute to convince myself
‘cause it’s only in the quiet that i know what to feel

i’m trying hard not to resist the joy
don’t listen to me i’m being paranoid
i might try hard but it’s too hard to avoid

my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat

i’m trying hard not to resist the joy
don’t listen to me i’m being paranoid
i might try hard but it’s too hard to avoid

my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
my heart skips a beat
