Power - Alicia Keys

www.last.fmby Benjamin O'Loughlin 


The Experience: You head out into the world... and you want to make it. You have faith in your destiny. But we meet doubt and fear along the way...

Music Video: Still waiting...

Meaning of Power: Alicia Keys wrote Power in 2007, but just released it now for Martin Luther King Day. Fear and doubt are definitely hurdles in life, and they bring lots of people down. But the question is, once you've handled your doubts and overcome your fears, what do you do with that power? Glory and power are two things that can be very addictive. Two things that you can use to do a lot of good... or a lot of harm.

Ask Yourself: If you get fame and glory, what's the key to making your power a force for good?


LYRICS:

Let me tell you a little story

Grandma, used to say nothing before it was time
Used to say that the world would be mine
So I should just have faith
She showed me, all I need in this life is for free
Change is one thing that is guaranteed
So I should just keep pace

So I marched on like the soldier in the story
Long the way I met a guy named Glory
He went to my head
I said
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you now more than ever
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you, feeling you
I feel the power
I feel the power
I feel the power
I want the power

Strong will
Long the road met a girl named Doubt
Wrapped in my mind, couldn't get her out
No matter how I tried it
And somewhere she introduced me to a friend named Fear
Thought I would never get the hell out of here
I had to say goodbye

So I marched on like the soldier in the story
Long the way I met a guy named Glory
He went to my head
I said

Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you now more than ever
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you, feeling you
I feel the power
I feel the power
I feel the power
I got the power
I feel the power

You wanna feel invincible?
If you wanna victorious
If you wanna feel this way
Let me hear you say

Power
Say power
Say power
Say power

I said

Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you now more than ever
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you, feeling you

I said
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you now more than ever
Oh baby, got to know you better
I'm feeling you, feeling you
