Head Over Heels Lyrics
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 via the system of touch
And gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration, could...

For whatever reason this song has been playing over and over again in my head. It used to bother me when I would hear these random songs over and over. It doesn't anymore. I believe that is because I found Jesus Christ and have learned a great deal about the occult and witchcraft. I now look at this as an opportunity to pray for those of you that sadly still seek Satan. I just listened to the song again and watched the video. I do agree with the most recent post that they end up together per the music video. It also appears in the video (at the end) that they are very disconnected and that she is "serving" him some kind of drink.
My interpretation of the song is that he falls head over heals for these women and then something happens and that's when he realizes that perhaps they really aren't who he thinks they are or wants them to be. Perhaps she feels the same way. Neither of them seem very happy at the end of the video.
To the person that posted something about seeing the sparkle in his eye..I'm not sure that we watched the same video.
I think this time he's hoping that with the help of a four leaf clover he can finally find the woman that he needs.
**P.S- The Clover isn't going to do the trick. You need to bend your knees and bow your head. Ask God for her. Bare your soul to him. Once you do, it will be much easier to bare your soul to the one he brings to you.
Prayers and peace to all,

If people watched the video all the way through, you would see that they eventually wind up together. The last scene is the librarian bringing Roland coffee or something to his desk

It is basically a romantic love song and one of the most simple tracks that Tears for Fears have ever recorded. It is a romance song that goes a bit perverse at the end.— Roland Orzabal from wikipedia. I watched it a few times, and I saw a little sparkle in his eye. His actions and eyes reminded me of someone. You are one blessed lady!

My interpretation of this song is that Ronald Ozabal was truly trying to tell the woman in this song that he loves her and it's hard for him to be serious at times but when he was telling her he loved her he wasn't fooling around. I know that it might seem crazy but you can obviously see little sparkles in his eyes every time he looks up and down at the woman. Watch it a few times tell me you if you see that little sparkle in his eye. It's the sparkle I see every time I look into my boyfriend's eyes.

For starters, Tears for Fears is a British band. In the 80's Brits didn't run around saying "Dude" like some bleached blonde California surfer.
The song is simply about the man's confusion over being "head over heels" in love with a woman who want's nothing more than a physical relationship with no emotional ties.
But he's being honest and telling her what he wants, laying it all on the line and leaving it up to luck (thus the 4 leaf clover reference towards the end)

I think the song is about a gay guy who has falling for someone that he wishes was gay but isn't. If you listen to the song where he says I'm lost in admiration DUDE I need you this much. In the printed version it reads could instead of DUDE, but listen to the song.
