"Head Over Heels" as written by Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine....
Been running so long
I've nearly lost all track of time
In every direction
I couldn't see the warning signs
I must be losin' it
Cause my mind plays tricks on me
It looked so easy
But you know looks sometimes deceive
Been running so fast
Right from the starting line
No more connections
I don't need any more advice
One hand's just reaching out
And one's just hangin' on
It seems my weaknesses
Just keep going strong

[Chorus]
Head over heels
Where should I go
Can't stop myself
Outta control
Head over heels
No time to think
Looks like
The whole world's out of sync

Been running so hard
When what I need is to unwind
The voice of reason
Is one I left so far behind
I waited so long
So long to play this part
And just remembered
That I'd forgotten about my heart

[Chorus]

    General Commentomg i love this song!
    i don't have an indepth interpretation
    but i don't think it really needs one
    a girl who's head over heels in love with a guy?
    yeah
    :]

    General CommentThis song is about wanted to be a rock star, and then finding out what a screwed up career you've gotten into. The charm is that it seems like a love song.

    Been running so long I’ve nearly lost all track of time
    In every direction I couldn’t see the warning signs

    (been on the road for so long that I don't even know where I am, what day it is. Partying, playing, drugging- couldn't see the warning signs)

    I must be losin’ it ‘Cause my mind plays tricks on me
    It looked so easy (to be famous, popular) But you know looks sometimes deceive

    Been running so fast Right from the starting line (from the moment the Go-Go's hit, it was non-stop promotion, touring, interviews...)
    No more connections (with people trying to make money off me, or drug dealers!)
    I don’t need any more advice

    One hand’s just reaching out And one’s just hangin’ on (I'm barely keeping it together)
    It seems my weaknesses (boys, sex, ego) Just keep going strong

    Head over heels
    Where should I go
    Can’t stop myself
    Outta control

    Head over heels
    No time to think
    Looks like the whole world’s
    Out of sync

    Been running so hard (since becoming a go-go)
    When what I need is to unwind
    The voice of reason
    Is one I left so far behind

    I waited so long
    So long to play this part (of a rockstar)
    And just remembered
    That I’d forgotten about my heart (i sold out)

    Head over heels
    Where should I go
    Can’t stop myself
    Outta control

    Head over heels
    No time to think
    Looks like the whole world’s
    Out of sync
