    He am is not grammatically correct. You might have heard ain`t which is a slang term for is not.
    As for your second question regarding how could i ever when my heart is in your hands, this is not a complete sentence. It could sound:
    How could I ever live / go on / etc. , when my heart is in your hands?

    Songs do not follow the rules of grammar. The language is governed by the need to fit into rhythm, rhyme and music. Do not regard them as a good source of learning formal English.
