It’s hard to be strong when you feelin’ powerless (powerless)

‘I’m sorry that she is affected. I did not ever intend to hurt anyone.’
‘How in the name of God, could you think that she wouldn’t be affected?! How?! You do not have no idea how devestated we are because of what you did.’

She wonders why nobody hears her cry
The footsteps in the hallway have her terrified
Scared as she looks into his starrin’ eyes
He crawls into her bed and she just lays there, almost paralized feelin’ powerless
She feels so powerless, she closed her eyes and hides under the covers, as her father tried to touch her. He took advantage of her – took all her innocence from her
She tried to explain to mother, but she said she don’t believe it
Nobody wanna talk about it – cause this don’t happen to good people, this don’t happen to good people
At the age of 17 she finally went to the police
Charged him for the crimes he did, and finally took him off the streets
Then at the trial, she had to relive it all again
Understand, explain, how this man took her life within. **

Abused for 9 years – he got 4 months in the bin
She got a life-long sentence, he got slap on the wrist

It happens all too much, but too many keep it ‘hush-hush’
How these kids suppose to trust us, man? Don’t let em feel powerless

I won’t feel powerless, (x2)

Thank you to my hero – I hope to meet you some day
Can anybody out there hear me? I hope somebody can hear me
Cause I don’t wanna be here no more, one day, one day
Cause I don’t wanna be here no more, one day, one day

We hope – Cause I don’t wanna be here no more

Shout out where my birthplace is, and to the First Nations
And to the people makin’ the best outa the worst cases
Too many unanswered questions and open murder cases
Without a voice how are we suppose to encourage changes?
My grandmother was part-white and part-Native
In fact, my highschool was part-white and part-Native
Personally connected, I’ve met people who’ve been affected
They’ve been asking for some help, but they been continuly neglected

How many more of these indigiounous women have to go missin’ before somebody will listen? Huh?
We need to change the conditions, maybe its blatin’ racism
Maybe there’s hate in the system, but we gotta fix it

Cause the people feel powerless
And the mothers feel powerless
And the fatheres feel powerless
Like, “Don’t anybody care about my daughter?”

“Don’t anybody care if she’s alive or she been slaughtered?”
They deserve to know, so they can go and bury her with honour

Big up to those fightin’ on, and everybody fightin’ strong

I wish that I could do more than just write a song, I feel so powerless
I feel so powerless
It’s hard to feel strong, but don’t feel powerless

Thank you to my hero – I hope to meet you some day
Can anybody out there hear me? I hope somebody can hear me
Cause I don’t wanna be here no more, one day, one day
Cause I don’t wanna be here no more, one day, one day

[Intro]
Someone turned out the lights in Musicland, uh

[Verse 1]
There he goes
My baby walks so slow
Sexual tic-tac-toe
Yeah, but we both know it isn’t time
But would you be m-mine?
We’ll never get too far
Just you, me and the bar
Silly menage a trois
Sometimes, would you be m-mine?
Would you be m-mine?
Could you be m-mine?

[Chorus]
Oh baby, the lights are on
But your mom’s not home
And I’m sick of laying down alone
With this fever, fever, yeah
My one and own
I’m gonna get you alone
Give you a fever, fever, yeah

[Verse 2]
There it goes
You stole my soul and so
‘Cause sweetheart, no-no-nobody a-no-no-knows me
Or can find time to be mine
Let’s get inside your car
Just you, me and the stars
Kind of menage a trois
Sometimes, would you be m-mine?
Would you be m-mine?
Could you be m-mine?

[Chorus]
Oh baby, the lights are on
But your mom’s not home
And I’m sick of laying down alone
With this fever, fever, yeah
My one and own
I’m gonna get you alone
Give you a fever, fever, yeah

[Break]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah

[Chorus]
Oh baby, the lights are on
But your mom’s not home
And I’m sick of laying down alone
With this fever, fever, yeah
My one and own
I’m gonna get you alone
Give you a fever, fever, yeah

[Outro]
Fever, fever, yeah
Yeah
Fever, baby, yeah
Fever, fever, yeah

Heavy on your heart
Heavy on your mind
Wandering the streets tonight
If you’re looking for a home
You are not alone
I can be your guiding line

‘Cause I promise you
I’m a dreamer too
Heavy on my heart
Wandering the streets tonight

When it all counts for something
And your pocket’s full of nothing
Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

We are dreamers together
Always and forever
Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

Heavy on my feet
Heavy on me knees
Walking down a winding road
If you’re looking for a home
You are not alone
I can be your stepping stone

‘Cause I promise you
I’m a dreamer too
Heavy on my feet
Walking down a winding road

When it all counts for something
And your pocket’s full of nothing
Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too
We are dreamers together
Always and forever
Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

I can promise you
Yes I am a dreamer too

Let’s get high on believing
I can promise you
Yes, I am a dreamer too

[Verse 1]
You seem to replace your brain with your heart
You take things so hard and then you fall apart
You try to explain, but before you can start
Those cry baby tears come out of the dark

[Verse 2]
You’re all on your own and you lost all your friends
You told yourself that it’s not you, it’s them
You’re one of a kind and no one understands
But those cry baby tears keep coming back again

[Chorus]
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
You’ll just let them drown
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
You’ll just let them drown
Cry baby, cry baby

[Verse 3]
You’re all on your own and you lost all your friends
You told yourself that it’s not you, it’s them
You’re one of a kind and no one understands
But those cry baby tears keep coming back again

[Verse 4]
You seem to replace your brain with your heart
You take things so hard and then you fall apart
You try to explain, but before you can start
Those cry baby tears come out of the dark

[Pre-Chorus]
Someone’s turning the handle to that faucet in your eyes
You pour it out where everyone can see
Your heart’s too big for your body, it’s why it won’t fit inside
You pour it out where everyone can see

[Chorus 2]
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby
