Bastille Power Lyrics

Aim, throw your best shot right at me

Cause pain, I can take it easily

Did you really think I’d fall to my knees

Just to pray for some sweet simplicity?

Cause woah, you’re squeezing my heart,

Too hard in your bare hands, they hold too tight

And woah the air is on fire,

This room feels electric, caught here in your sights

Power, power

I will never understand the power you were holding over me

Power, power

Oh you had it too long, yes you had it too long

Pain, just synapses firing in our brain

So when you cut me, cut me deep

Hurt the ones you love the most easily

Cause in time we show our Achilles’s heels

And woah, you’re squeezing my heart,

Too hard in your cold bare hands, they hold too tight

And woah the air is on fire,

This room feels electric, caught here in your sights

Power, power

I will never understand the power you were holding over me

Power, power

Oh you had it too long, yes you had it too long

If you’re gonna hit me, hit me harder

(Hit me, hit me harder)

Cause you better knock me out the first time

And if you’re gonna do this rip the plaster

(Do this rip the plaster)

If you’re gonna hit me, hit me harder than this

Power, power

Blows my mind to think I ever let you hold it over me

Power, power

I will never understand the way I let you hold it over me

Power, power

Well you had it too long, yes you had it too long

Power, oh, oh, power, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Power, power

I let you have it too long, yes you had it too long
