"In Trance" as written by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker....
I wake up in the morning
And the sun begins to shine
The day did sneak up on the night
I see your face and I see myself
And I get a little taste of life
I try to stand it for a while

But I'm in a trance
Hey baby, tell me, can't you hear me calling?
I'm in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey, hey
Hey baby, tell, me can't you hear me calling?
I'm in a trance
I want to try to stop this life

I feel so sad I'm feeling down
On the radio the music plays
I'm in love with her and I feel fine
I close my eyes, I think today is getting better with a sip of wine
And I can stand it for a while

When I'm in a trance
Hey baby tell me can't you hear me calling
I'm in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey, hey
Hey baby tell me can't you hear me calling
I'm in a trance
I want to try to stop this life

I'm in a trance
Hey baby tell me can't you hear me calling
I'm in a trance
I take too much in the Saturday night
Hey, hey
Hey baby tell me can't you hear me calling
I'm in a trance
I want to try to stop this life

    General CommentI can't beleive no-one commented this song! Scorpions fans, where are you?

    It's about that feeling in the morning, when you swear to God, to the whole world, to yourself that you'll be a better person, that you'll get your love back or something...

    It's a beautiful song, the chorus is a work of art, and the whole atmosphere is so.. like Led Zeppelin. Just perfect.

    General CommentThe first time I read the lyrics I thought that this song would be about drugs, but looking deeper, I see that its much more than that.

    I think its about the post-breakup of a serious relationship. The girl has left him and he's trying to cope with the depression. On the saturday nights he goes and gets really drunk and screams out her name, but she cant hear him.

    Yeah, thats my interpretation of it.

    General CommentThe Scorpion's song In Trance is the best Rock and Roll Ballad of all time. It talks about alcoholism, and being disgusted with your present life and old lady. And how it only seems to get better with a "sip of wine." I think when he refers to "Hey baby, Can you hear me calling" is a shout out to death. As if he want to be relieved from this life. And of course, the title In Trance. I think it refers to going through life by just the motions, not really living it, like in a comatose stage....Klaus Meine really brings the darkness, an almost crying in his singing voice...And the music haunting and driving. Just a perfect Rock and Roll Ballad...
