"Heel Over Head" as written by and Wesley Reid Scantlin....
Don't you walk out that door
Don't even pet the dog on the floor
Just take your things in the yard
And throw your keys anywhere

After all the things I've done for you
Year after year after burnin' year
And I'm sorry for wastin' all your time
And I'm sorry for losin' all my life
And I think that I'm lost and hard to find
But I fell like I'm livin' a timeless lie

And I'm Heel over head
Jet black sky is painted white again
I'm heel over head
Leave my eyes in the clouds again
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You don't save me

Don't you walk away from me
I'm givin' up everything
But I think that I'm rippin' apart at the seams
And I'm findin' it hard, hard to believe
And I feel like I'm livin' inside a dream
And no one believes
And no one sees
That I'm sorry for wastin' all your time
And I'm sorry for losin' on the line

And I'm Heel over head
Jet black sky is painted white again
I'm heel over head
Leave my eyes in the clouds again

You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all

You don't save me
Or hear me
Or touch me
Or break me
Or think that I'm rippin' a part at the seams
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You dont feel me or touch me

I'm sorry, and I'm sorry for wastin'
I'm sorry, and I'm sorry for wastin'
I'm sorry, and I'm sorry you don't
See me
Hear me
Touch me
Bring me
Think that I'm rippin' apart at the seams
You don't see me
Hear me
Touch me
Bring me
Think that I'm rippin' apart at the seams
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You don't save me at all
You don't see me or hear me

    General CommentThe song is clearly about long-term relationship break up. It starts with Wes kicking an ex-girlfriend out his place.

    My analysis:
    He's heel over head which is the opposite of the head over heels. He's just sick of this person; which is the opposite of being in crazy about her. "Jet black sky is painted white again." This line is taking the expression 'head over heels' literally. The jet black refers to the asphault of the road. The white refers to the clouds.

    "You don't save me
    Or hear me
    Or touch me
    Or break me
    Or think that I'm rippin' a part at the seams "
    His ex was being insensitive to his feelings so he's sick of staying with her for "year after year after burning year."

    When I first bought the 'Life on Display' album, I thought POM could have picked a better 2nd single from the album. But the appeal of this song for me is that it has a very unique instrumental sound.

    General CommentThis has to be one of their best songs so emotion and got lyrics they got to be about a long term break up that Wes feels he is sorry for wasting all the time maybe he know about whatever they finally broke up about a while ago and just didnt say aything but whatever it means one of my favs by POM and everybody better get on it

    General CommentThis song is sweet. POM is good a writing songs that are catchy and still rock. And i'm pretty sure the lyric is, "you dont see me at all."
