Strike Zone

Loverboy
Language: English



The song addresses the Cold War tensions in East and West Germany. It was written after the band completed a concert tour in East Germany, and describes the mood of the people of that country as perceived by the songwriter.
You tell yourself you're not the one
You won't get hurt when the damage is done
You tell yourself it won't happen to you
It's the same old story, there's nothin' new
Can't be the one, the one to lose
You won't be wearing someone else's shoes
Can't you read it, it's up on the wall
How can someone so big, be so small

Bridge:
You're nothin', wothout your friends
They'll be with you 'till the bitter end
You're nothin', and you'll find out
What this world is all about

Chorus:
Standin' in the strike zone
Runnin' with the pack
Standin' in the strike zone
Ain't no use in turnin' back

You walk on water it's the chance you take
Against the odds that the ice won't break
When the sun comes up in the dead of the night
You won't escape from it's blinding light
Feel the blood running through your veins
See the madness burning in their brains
Nowhere to run, no place to hide
We're all along for that one-way ride

Bridge:
You're nothin', wothout your friends
They'll be with you 'till the bitter end
You're nothin', and you'll find out
What this world is all about

Chorus:
Standin' in the strike zone
Runnin' with the pack
Standin' in the strike zone
Ain't no use in turnin' back

Chorus:
Standin' in the strike zone
There's a panic in the streets
Standin' in the strike zone
Ain't no Bonaparte's Retreat, No!

You tell yourself you're not the one

You won't be wearing someone else's shoes

Chorus:
Standin' in the strike zone
There's a panic in the streets
Standin' in the strike zone
You've got a ticket for a front row seat
