Now I Understand

This song is by Lisa Loeb and appears on the album The Way It Really Is (2004).

Oh, when I turned five I got a piece of cake,
The corner with the rose.
I leaned in close,
And I told him that I loved him, and he ran.
It made my heart stop.
It made my heart stop.

Now I understand that my heart doesn't stop,
Even though it feels like it could explode.
Now I understand that my heart doesn't stop,
It beats on and on and on.

And in the afternoon I put on my best swimming suit,
And spied across the pool at all my friends,
But I sat on the steps, in the shallow end alone
Because my heart stopped.
It made my heart stop.

I didn't get what I expected.
Reached out and I got rejected.
I couldn't have it 'cause I checked it off.
Felt sad, I didn't understand it.
Why would this happen to me?
But my heart, it didn't stop,
It beat on and on and on.

Now I understand that my heart doesn't stop,
Even though it feels like it could explode.
Now I understand that my heart doesn't stop,
It beats on and on and on.
