Riff: Demi Lovato – “Heart Attack”

Jul 2, 2013

Puttin’ my defenses up/Cause I don’t want to fall in love/If I ever did that/I think I’d have a heart attack

from Heart Attack lyrics by Demi Lovato

If your eardrum can avoid self-destruction long enough to get through this nightmare then give yourself credit. Lovato – in her best tough girl routine – declares love to be a farce, which all works out too cause there’s enough nuclear waste here to deter all forms of life for years to come; [LISTEN].
