Head Over Heels

Tears For Fears

I wanted to be (with you alone)
And talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against (the child in your face)
Won't escape my attention

You keep your distance with (a system of touch)
And gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration could (I need you this much?)
Oh, you're wasting my time
You're just, just, just wasting time

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out till I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah! Don't take my heart, don't break my heart
Don't, don't, don't throw it away

Throw it away!

Throw it away!

I made a fire (I'm watching burn)
I thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just (how long will it last?)
No! No! No! Have you no ambition?
(What's the matter with—)

My mother and my brothers used to (breathe in clean in air)
(Nothing ever changes when you’re acting your age)
And dreaming I’m a doctor
(Nothing gets done when you feel like a baby)
It’s hard to be a man when there’s a gun (in your hand)
(Nothing ever changes when you’re acting your age)
Oh, I feel so

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out till I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah, don't take my heart, don't break my heart
Don't, don't, don't throw it away

And this my four leaf clover
I'm on the line, one open mind
This is my four leaf clover

(La la-la la la, la la-la la la)
(La la la-la la-la)

It's my mind's eye
One little boy, one little man
Funny how time flies
