Power

Ellie Goulding

Songtext:

Painted to pure perfection
We had a real connection
Bodies, aching, overtaken

You kept me at a distance,
Not asking any questions
Fingers, Pressing
Learning, lessons

Beautiful lies on a Friday night
Starting to wonder where we lost the magic
Head in the clouds, talking so loud, all I hear is static
I'm not a material girl, everything in your world just feels like plastic,
Wearing your crown, it's pulling me down
You just want the power, you're not really down for love
You just want the power

The power

No I'm not chasing paper and I'm not faking neither
Take me higher or this will expire
Your self obsessions boring, sorry if I'm ignoring
Mindless actions lead to destruction

Beautiful lies on a Friday night
Starting to wonder where we lost the magic
Head in the clouds, talking so loud, all I hear is static
I'm not a material girl, everything in your world just feels like plastic,
Wearing your crown, it's pulling me down
You just want the power, you're not really down for love
You just want the power

The power

Everything you do is so cruel
Taking me for a fool
Making me need a new fix
Making me worship you
Everything you do is so cruel
Taking me for a fool
Making me need a new fix
Making me worship you

Beautiful lies on a Friday night
Starting to wonder where we lost the magic
Head in the clouds, talking so loud, all I hear is static
I'm not a material girl, everything in your world just feels like plastic,
Wearing your crown, it's pulling me down
You just want the power, you're not really down for love
You just want the power
