"Headstrong" as written by Chris Brown, Simon Ormandy and Peter Charell....
Circling your head contemplating everything you ever said
Now I see the truth I got a doubt
A different motive in your eyes and now I'm out
See you later
I see your fantasies
You wanna make it a reality baby paved in gold
See inside, inside of our heads yeah
Well now that's over

I see your motives inside
Decisions to hide

Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
I know that you are wrong
Headstrong we're Headstrong
Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
I know that you are wrong
This is not where you belong

I can't give everything away
I won't give everything away

Conclusions manifest your first impressions got to be your very best
I see you're full of shit is not so right
That's how you play I guess you get through every night
Now that's over
I see your fantasies
You wanna make it a reality
Paved in gold
See inside, inside of our heads
Well now that's over

I see your motives inside
And your decisions to hide

Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on any one
I know that you are wrong
Headstrong, we're headstrong
Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
I know that you are wrong
And this is not where you belong
Where you belong

I can't give everything away
This is not where you belong
I won't give everything away

I know I know all about
I know I know all about
I know I know all about
I know I know all about
Your motives inside
And your decision to hide

Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
I know that you are wrong
Headstrong,we're headstrong
Back off I'll take you on
Headstrong to take on anyone
I know that you are wrong
And this is not where you belong
Where you belong
This is not where you belong

I can't give everything away
This is not where you belong
I won't give everything away
Where you belong
This is not where you belong

    General CommentMy opinion seems to aim in a similar direction as yours, manduh. I think this song is about a relationship about two people who are different.
    The woman wants the man to give up everything he has, but he won't do that. So he tells her to get out of his life. "This is not where you belong", I believe is aiming at him telling her that he's not right for her.
    And her motives are for him to give up his whole life and everything he has to satisfy her. And he's "headstrong", which is why he's saying no. He's not going to be bossed around. He knows that she's not right for him. Just a theory. Please don't shoot it down.

    General CommentErr, really, it's only a good song for pre-pubescent Good Charlotte fans who think the world hates them.

    Song MeaningThis song could be about a bad relationship between to people. I guess this song is talking about how someone has a friend who is going to betray him or something and that someone figures it out and then he leaves that friend. The friend is scared because the person is angry at him and he wants to 'take him on,' and the friend 'makes the desicion to hide.'

    Well, that's my interpretation.
