"Head Games" as written by Wayne Jones, David Joseph Betts, Jonathan Charles Benn, Matthew John Albon and Samuel Dyson....
Day light, alright, I don't know, I don't know if it's real
Been a long night, and something ain't right
You won't show, you won't show how you feel
No time ever seems right, to talk about the reasons why you and I fight
It's high time to draw the line, put an end to this game, before it's too late
Head games, it's you and me, baby
Head games, and I can't take it anymore
Head games, I don't want to play the head games
A daydream, for hours it seems, I keep thinking of you, yeah thinking of you
These daydreams, what do they mean
They keep haunting me, are they warning me
Daylight turns into night
We try and find the answer, but it's nowhere in sight
It's always the same, and you know who's to blame
You know what I'm saying, still we keep on playing
Head games, that's all I get from you
Head games, and I can't take it anymore
Head games, don't want to play the head games

So near, so far away, we pass each other by 'cause we don't know what to say
It's so clear, I'm sorry to say
But if you want to win, you gotta learn how to play
Head games, always you and me, baby
Head games, till I can't take it anymore
Head games, instead of making love
Head games, oh
Head games, always you and me, baby
Head games, till I can't take it anymore, no more
Head games, instead of making love, we play
Head games
Head games, in the first degree
Head games, yeah, always you and me
Head games, why do you do it, baby
Head games, you put me trough it baby

    General CommentHead games—also played by men—are part of the allure sexuality promises and delivers. Without them, we'd be bored—our brains would stagnate.

    An interesting perspective—wars are started by head games and perpetuated with weapons ... No offense to every man—because they are all so wonderfully diverse and different—but most of war’s head games have been played by men. With the notion that both of you males have unfortunately been silly putty in the hands of wily females, I wish you better luck in matters of the heart.

    Song MeaningWith all due respect , you are all wrong. I can relate to this song. He is admitting that he is guilty too of playing the head games and he finally comes out with his feelings. I have had situations where , I had certain history with a woman and in a nightclub or party or wherever, we both just ignore each other , like neither one exists. This is what Lou Gramm is reffering. It is the whole process that goes with these "head games', including the awkwardness of an unexpected meeting. He is being the big man by having the guts to tell this lady how he truly feels.

    General CommentI think people have totally missed the actual *second* hidden meaning of this song. He intentionally named it HEAD games. Normally, people use the term "mind games" to describe the manipulative psychological interplay between a couple. I think one perfectly acceptable interpretation of this song is that the girl will not give him sex, only "head games". He's getting fed up with the situation and wants her to give herself sexually to him. Why is he having daydreams about her? Because he wants to make love and all she can give him is head games because she wants to either be in love or married before she'll go all the way. Given the mindset of women around 1980, this fits perfectly. But yet, you can also take the other literal meaning that it's about mind games between a couple.
