Winger - headed for a heartbreak


Winger - headed for a heartbreak - Meaning of the song


“Headed for a Heartbreak” was one of those songs that immediately make you fall in love with the first time you heard it.


The track was released in May 1989, as a single from Winger‘s self-titled debut album. It was written by the lead singer of the band – Kip Winger. According to him, this is the most definite Winger song.


Written in a lydian scale, the song tells us a story about a man, who wants to be left alone and move on with his life, as his love has become a stranger to him. Despite that he’s going to be heartbroken, he chooses to “live again” instead of keep on dealing with the pain she’s causing him.


Headed for a heartbreak - Lyrics


Morning came and I was on my way

When you reminded me

I had too soon forgotten

It was you that set me free

Yeah, you were here when I came

You'll be here when I'm gone

So don't be waiting on love

'Cause I'll be waiting to ramble on


Headed for a heartbreak

Headed for a heartbreak


Darling, don't wait up for me

Tonight I won't be home

You've become a stranger

I just got to be alone

Don't need nobody on my side

To dull the blade I'm on

So don't be waiting on love

'Cause I'll be waiting to ramble on


Headed for a heartbreak

Headed for a heartbreak

Headed for a heartbreak


It's not a mistake

Don't you think I can feel the pain?

I walk away, to live again...


Headed for a heartbreak

Headed for a heartbreak (Don't make me hurt you)

Headed for a heartbreak ('Cause I love you...)

Headed for a heartbreak


Don't you think I feel the pain?



Winger - headed for a heartbreak - Live
