Geoff Moore and The Distance: Home Run

Featured Video Play Icon
The lights go on, another game day
I grabbed my bat, and headed for the plate
But the first pitch was a curve, and I was done

Strike one!

I stepped out of the box, looked the pitcher in the eye
You could read his lips, “Hey punk you’re mine”
So I gave him a wink and said, “Let’s see what you can do”

Strike two!

Gotta keep my eye on the ball
Swing straight and true and follow through
Don’t be afraid, whatever the call
Because we’re never alone
Our coach is there to cheer us on
Well, it’s the wind-up
Here comes that ball
You gotta pray and swing
Watch it till, it’s goin’, goin’, it’s gone!

Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
We need a home run!
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
We need a home run!

You know life can be like a baseball game
We’re on the same team, but we’re not all the same
That’s why we’ve got to learn to play together

I didn’t join this team to sit on the bench
I’m goin’ deep, swingin for the fence
I got some friends on base, I gotta get home!

Gotta keep your eye on the ball
Swing straight and true, and follow through
Don’t be afraid, whatever the call
Because we’re never alone
Our coach is there to cheer us on
Well it’s the wind-up
Here comes the ball
You gotta pray and swing
Watch it till it’s goin’, goin’, it’s gone!

Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
I’m on a home run!
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
I’m on a home run!

We are not the first to play this game
Or stand over this plate
We are surrounded by the legacy
Like they’re sittin’ in the stands
I can see them wavin their hands
Sayin, “go, go all the way!”

It’s going, it’s going, it’s going
Oh my!
It’s outta here!
That baby is gone!

Come on now
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
Hey it’s gone, gone now
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
Hey it’s a homerun
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, home run!
