Marillion - Power Lyrics




You carry me around
Like loose change jingle-jangling
At the bottom of your bag
You don't seem to feel it though
As you swing down the street
Walking that unique birthday-candle glow

In broad daylight
In broad daylight

And you don't even know
The way I love you

You never knew power, did you?
You thought that power was in a strong arm
People pass the laws and gold
Tsunamis and mushroom clouds

Oh babe that's nothing

You think it's kind of sweet
The stammer and the tremble in my voice
But don’t mistake it for weakness
Or some kind of incompleteness
'Cause round about now
I can feel it tingle-tangling
It's coiled up inside me
And it’s ready to blow

You never knew power, did you?
Thought it fizzed in the overhead lines
Burning steel and bone to carbon
A Saturn-5 in a vertical climb

You never knew power, did you?
Thought it roared like Niagara Falls
Or melted stone under volcanoes
Earthquake, thunder, lightning, storms

The way I love you
Is something you don't understand

The way I love you
Took more than I could imagine, even now
You never knew power
All the time you felt so strong

But now you can't function
Awake or asleep
As the meaningless world falls away from your feet
And the Universe ceases its light-speed retreat
Life was sweet in the meteor shower
Of the star-high divine
When you sparkled and fell
From heaven to hell

And ten years grinding by in every hour
In every hour
I know all about power

Listen to the rain
You might feel a tremble
You might feel it

    You carry me around
    Like loose change jingle janglin'
    At the bottom of your bag
    You don't seem to feel it though
    Because you swing down the street
    Walking that unique birthday candle glow
    In broad daylight, in broad daylight
    And you don't even know
    The way I love you
    You never knew power until you
    You thought that power was this scar
    People pass the laws in gold
    Seen our needs, emotional parts
    Oh baby, that's nothing
    You think it's kind of sweet
    The stammer and the tremble in my voice
    But don?t mistake it for weakness
    Or some kind of incompleteness
    'Cause round about now
    I can feel it tingle tanglin'
    It's coiled up inside me
    And it?s ready to blow
    You never knew power until you
    You saw it fizzed in the over-head lines
    Burning steel are borne to currents
    Satisfied the vertical pylons
    You never knew power until you
    Saw it roll like a head with thoughts
    Or melting stone, a new volcano
    Earthquake, thunder, lightning, stars
    The way I love you
    Is something you don't understand
    The way I love you
    Took more than I could imagine, even now
    You never knew how hard
    All the time you felt so strong
    But now you can't function
    The wave of a sleeve
    Is the meaningless slew
    Falls away from your feet
    And the Universe uses
    It's light, streaming free
    Life will scream in the meteor shower
    Of this guided light
    Where you sparkle and fail
    From heavens fell
    Take each guiding light
    In in every hour, in every hour
    I know the power, power
    Listen to me
    My feelings tremble
    Am I feeling?

  19. PurpleIntoDeep

    I like the sound!

  20. Chromatic Element

    This song comes as close to explaining the strength of love as ever I've heard. Which is rare if you're honest with yourself. Great song.

  21. Michael Burns

    Hands down their best song. Captures everything I love about the band. Huge credit to putting out such a masterpiece this far into their careers where so many other artists have long since dried up.

    tronlady1

    I honestly couldn’t decide on their best song!! I truly truly think I have around 100 marillion songs that affect me as much as this...Without a doubt the best band in the world xxxxxx

    Grande marillion gran cancion

  53. Alex Silveston

    très grand groupe

  54. MARBLES81

    Great song from the best album of 2012/13

  55. MARBLES81

    You need to get over it and move on. So so bitter. Marillion with H has been over 24 years now... the only thing that is boring is the tired old bullshit you write here. Marillion got better when H joined and even Fish thinks that.. Move on

  56. Michael DiCerto

    OLD Marillion was like Genesis. It hasn't been that Marillion for almost 2 decades. Get with it.

  57. MrRFasters

    Than we could only conclude that the bastard son of U2 and Pink Flloyd turned out rather well, now didn't he? But: from such wonderful parents nothing bad is to be expected ... :-)

  58. barcigian

    This is the best album from H era!

    Noob de Busca

    Brave and Marbles are the best

    Eric Chenard

    I prefer Brave.

  59. SYM

    Amazing song, I love

  60. Jefrey indriago

    Its very good, but sound like Somewhere Else

  61. Crap Reviewer

    4:25 - amazing music change

  62. Crap Reviewer

  64. MARBLES81

    Best band in the world

  65. Dominique Jacob

    Génial vraiment du très bon Marillion

  66. freedamo76

    Love these guys always making great music Viva Marillion!!

  67. cudaguy74

    Just came from Montreal and 3 nights of the best music in my life. I like Floyd, Genisis, U2, Queen , Rush etc and you are missing the boat with your ignorance. There is no better music out there rite now and they just keep on making great songs where as all the big bands just play the old shit when the checking accounts get low and there you are paying 150 bucks ea for your U2 tixs.

  68. Yake Div

    U R f****g deaf.keep listening ur trash and stay away from the good suff little closer minded.

  69. Pertti Yli-Öyrä

    Marillion is making their music. Not what you want them to do. That makes them even better.

  70. omeoplasmine1

    MARILLION ne change rien, toujours les meme!!!
    Steve.H ta voix merveilleuse qui nous envoutes........... quelle soit éternelle,merci pour ces purs moments de bonheur!!!!
    A tous MERCI, grâce a vous j'ai toujours de la musique envoutante ennivrante et magique a écouter; thank you !!!!!

  71. Juhani Palomäki

    Love the bass line and the atmosphere of this song. Pure Marillion!

  72. Wade Williams

    You guys seem to be talented musicians, but this style/genre of music is horrible. This sounds like a bastard child that U2 and Pink Floyd would create.

  73. augenbutter

    ..and you don't even know the way I love this song!!
    ⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄/////⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄/////⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄/////⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄/////⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄/////⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄⁄

  74. Sylvie Zorita

    encore un album de marillion qui cartonne

  75. IguessImight

    Paris h-2!

  76. Carlos Mastenbroek

    I swing down the street day and night with this song....Love the groove... Love every note of it! Power rules!

  77. Paulo Santos

    Yes, but their music style have nothing in common with Coldplay. But in deed, I prefer Marillion... Light years ahead...

  78. PositiveLastAction

    Fantastic song...huge credits to Pete and Mark on this one!

  79. herrporcupine

    I don't even know what that Coldcrap is :P

  80. Sandrine6364

    excellentissime album <3<3<3

  81. Sandrine6364

    bientôt à Toulouse <3

  82. allconsuminghat

    I don't know whether to like this in agreement or vote it down for the comparison.

  83. 92SJ

    Is that even a question?

  84. Alexandra Wood

    I've never heard them compared to Coldplay before. Do people do that? They're in different leagues.

  85. Luiz Bertevello

    Marillion, the best ever...

  86. Carlos River

    Marillion is the best band in history, allways keep the vangaurd in them sounds, too many quality songs in all of them records, and the show is realy wonderful, thanks God for give me tha chance to see them for three times in México City. Marillion rules!!!!!!

  87. erythmatea

    this album it`s not marillion i think that this album is silmarillion, beautiful musics with beautiful lyrics, such a pure classic rock...

  88. luiz

    Excelente

  89. Adam Pocwiardowski

    True. Just Marillion. But "Power" is so warm and electrifying to me. Montreal is also a good piece of music. By the way my favourite is Wim Mertens. Birds for the Mind !

  90. Dai Thomas

    H. can't sing for toffee.

  91. Brunno Loss

    Marillion > all lol :3

  92. Michael DiCerto

    Best Marillion album since Marbles

  93. Stefano Trida

    It's like saying diamonds > common stone.

  94. Xeretix

    except Coldplay would never have such a great vocal performance.

  95. florescu anuta

    no word yet invented to describe marillion ♥

  96. Photobyke

    I'm not sure I agree with you. This song is nothing like 80's music at all. Listen to Ultravox, Wham, Duran Duran and Talk Talk and then tell me how Marillion compare to any of these.
    If any bands are starting to hark back to the 80's, I'd point to Muse. It's not necessarily a bad thing either.

  97. hopeless4x

    I wasnt trying to do that i just hate groups in mainstream, money and fame ruin them
