Head Over Heels

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 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 throw it away

I made a fire and watching burn
Thought of your future
With one foot in the past
Now just how long will it last

No, no, no, have you no ambition
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
Oh, I feel so

Something happens and I'm head over heels

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

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