​Power Play

This song is by Eddie And The Tide and appears on the movie soundtrack The Lost Boys (1987).

They're out of order in war
They're out of order in love

They need to feed
They both agree
The hawk and the dove

But don't get mad, get even
And don't let 'em get to you

I've never promised
It was fair or true
Before they're through
They'll have me hunting you

(Remember) It's not important
(It's just a power play)

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on deck

It's a power play
A power power play

We're in the final quarter
And it's running out
You're needing five
In life, there's no time out

It's a power play
A power power play
(It's just a power play)

They'll lift you out of the cradle
Help you into the grave

But don't be fooled
The only rule's
Don't be their slave

Take a chill pill, baby
Relax, float downstream

Life is no rehearsal
You know what I mean
And freedom seems
To be a far-off dream

(Remember) It's not important
(It's just a power play)

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on deck

It's a power play
A power power play

We're in the final quarter
And it's running out
You're needing five
In life, there's no time out

It's a power play
A power power play
(It's just a power play)

(Musical Bridge)

A power power play

It's a power play
A power power play

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on deck

It's a power play
A power power play

We're in the final quarter
And it's running out
You're needing five
In life, there's no time out

It's a power play
A power power play
(It's just a power play)
