Power & Control

Album: Electra Heart (2012)
  • Power
    And control

    Give a little, get a lot
    That's just how you are with love
    Give a little, get a lot
    Yeah, you may be good-looking but you're not a piece of art

    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall
    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall

    Women and men, we are the same
    But love will always be game
    We give and take a little more
    Eternal game of tug and war

    Think you're funny, think you're smart
    Think you're gonna break my heart
    Think you're funny, think you're smart
    Yeah, you may be good-looking but you're not a piece of art

    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall
    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall

    Women and men, we are the same
    But love will always be a game
    A human vulnerability
    Doesn't mean that I am weak

    That I am weak
    I am weak
    I am weak
    I am weak
    Weak

    Weak (ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)
    Weak (ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)
    Weak (ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)
    Weak (ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah)

    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall
    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall

    Women and men, we are the same
    But love will always be a game
    We give and take a little more
    Eternal game of tug and war

    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall
    Power, control
    I'm gonna make you fall
    I'm gonna make you fall

    We give and take a little more
    'Cause all my life I've been controlled
    You can't have peace without a war
    Without a war
    Without a war Writer/s: Marina Lambrini Diamandis, Steve Angello
