Outside the Pennsylvania night flies by so fast
As I approach the perfect speed to drive into the past
The radio seems to tune right into the situation
Seems like they're playing disco on every single station
You gotta do what the roamers do wherever you roam
And I'm stuck out here in the Disco Zone

I never much liked disco guess I'm just not that kinda guy
My ex-wife she loved it and could never tell me why
I guess that was the first sure sign that something had to give
Ever since she left seems like this road is where I live
Some nights her memories won't leave me alone
And I'm stuck out here in the Disco Zone

Trying not to think of her is like trying to defy gravity
My brain seeks out the pain like a tongue to a cavity
That insipid music backed up all our biggest fights
Looks like it's gonna be another disco night

All those eighteen wheels out there rolling across the black
Sometimes I think this one in front of me is all that holds me back
From somehow getting all the way back to 1978
Stopping all this music and setting things all straight
When the past is in the wind sometimes the future looks blown
And I'm stuck out there in the Disco Zone

Here come the Beatles singing about "Here Comes The Sun"
Here comes the truck stop, think I'll put some walk into this run
Damn if that old backbeat didn't get right into my back
I got kind of dark last night but I'll get back on track
Sometimes those deep regrets get right into your bones
When you're stuck out there in the Disco Zone
