Ellie Goulding – Power


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 cutting 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-obsession’s 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 cutting 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 cutting me down

You just want the power
You’re not really down for love
You just want the power
(The power)
