Kelly Clarkson's "Heartbeat Song" Lyrics Perfectly Capture the Excitement of Falling In Love — LISTEN

On Monday, Kelly Clarkson debuted her new single, "Heartbeat Song," a ridiculously catchy pop track with loads of hit potential. Written by former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi (Clarkson's "Gone" and "Walk Away"), singer-songwriter Audra Mae, pop producers Jason Evigan and Mitch Allan (Demi Lovato's "Heart Attack"), and possibly Clarkson herself (it's unclear), the track's lyrics perfectly capture the thrill and excitement of falling in love. Aww! I can't say for certain whether or not Clarkson had a hand in crafting "Heartbeat Song" (she's listed as a writer on the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers website, but not on iTunes), but regardless, I think it's likely that the lyrics reflect a couple of her own recent life experiences.

After all, "Heartbeat Song" is probably one of the first songs Clarkson recorded after marrying talent manager Brandon Blackstock in October 2013. Eight months later, the couple welcomed their first child together, the adorable River Rose. There's a whole lot of love in Clarkson's life at the moment, and, appropriately, her upbeat new single sounds like a celebration.

Check out the full lyrics for "Heartbeat Song" below.

1st VERSE:

You

Where the hell did you come from?

You're a different different kind of fun

And I'm so used to feeling numb

Now, I've got pins and needles on my tongue

Anticipating what's to come

Like a finger on a loaded gun

1st PRE-CHORUS:

I can feel it rising

Temperature inside me

Haven't felt it for a long time

CHORUS:

This is my heartbeat song, and I'm gonna play it

Been so long, I forgot how to turn it up up up up all night long

Oh, up up all night long

This is my heartbeat song, and I'm gonna play it

Turned it on, but I know you can take it up up up up all night long

Oh, up up all night long

2nd VERSE:

I, I wasn't even gonna go out

But I never would've had a doubt

If I'd've known where I'd be now

2nd PRE-CHORUS:

Your hands on my hips and

My kiss on your lips, oh

I could do this for a long time

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Until tonight, I'd only dreamed about you

I can't believe I ever breathed about you

Baby, you make me feel alive and brand new

Bring it one more time (one more time)

CHORUS x 2
