lyrics

It’s probably nothing, that little twinge of chest pain
My dizzy spells, my hands they swell, my doc calls me the “worried well”
So, it’s probably nothing, I just slept on it wrong
My vision’s blurred, there’s a ringing sound, something must be going round…
Or maybe it’s something… when my heart skips a beat
My breath ain’t right— it’s worse at night— If I can slow it down I’ll be alright

And I feel hungover, but that can’t be right
I’m a hundred percent sure I didn’t drink last night!!

So, it’s probably nothing, that metallic taste
The pain I feel, I know it’s real, the sickness comes with every meal
But it’s probably nothing, chalk it up to my age
I feel like I’m gonna die, my blood pressure’s never been that high
Or maybe it’s something… when my heart skips a beat
My breath ain’t right— it’s worse at night— If I can slow it down I’ll be alright

If there was a blood test for what I’ve got, then I would be fine
And someone would be deserving of the Nobel Prize!!

So, it’s probably nothing, a bad sandwich I guess
Could be hormones or allergies, my family thinks that I’m a mess
But maybe it’s something, that little lump in my neck
I’m bruising now and I’m coughing still, let me google-it… just to check
It says it’s definitely something… when my heart skips a beat
My breath ain’t right— it’s worse at night— If I can slow it down I’ll be alright
