Pat Benatar - Invincible



"Invincible" is the Grammy-nominated lead single from Pat Benatar's sixth studio album Seven the Hard Way (1985), released on July 6, 1985. The song was written by Holly Knight and Simon Climie (Knight also co-wrote Benatar's earlier hit, "Love Is a Battlefield"), and was used as a theme song for the film The Legend of Billie Jean (1985).


Helen Slater ("Billie Jean") once stated "That song will always take me back to a part in the movie where Lisa Simpson gets her period," (referring to a scene involving the character "Putter," played by Yeardley Smith).


The song was a huge hit, peaking at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on September 14, 1985.




Lyrics


This bloody road remains a mystery.

This sudden darkness fills the air.

What are we waiting for?

Won't anybody help us?

What are we waiting for?

We can't afford to be innocent

stand up and face the enemy.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

This shattered dream you cannot justify.

We're gonna scream until we're satisfied.

What are we running for? We've got the right to be angry.

What are we running for when there's nowhere we can run to anymore?

We can't afford to be innocent

stand up and face the enemy.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.


Won't anybody help us?

What are we running for when there's nowhere

nowhere we can run to anymore?

We can't afford to be innocent

stand up and face the enemy.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

We can't afford to be innocent

stand up and face the enemy.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

We can't afford to be innocent

stand up and face the enemy.

It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
