Nina Cried Power

[Verse 1: Hozier] It’s not the waking, it’s the rising It is the grounding of a foot uncompromising It’s not forgoing of the lie It’s not the opening of eyes It’s not the waking, it’s the rising It’s not the shade, we should be past it It’s the light, and it’s the obstacle that casts it It’s the heat that drives the light It’s the fire it ignites It’s not the waking, it’s the rising It’s not the song, it is the singing It’s the heaven of a human spirit ringing It is the bringing of the line It is the bearing of the rhyme It’s not the waking, it’s the rising [Chorus: Hozier & Mavis Staples] And I could cry power (Power), power (Power) Power, Lord Nina cried power Billie cried power Mavis cried power And I could cry (Power) power, (Power) power Hey, power Curtis cried power Patti cried power Nina cried power [Verse 2: Hozier] It’s not the wall, but what’s behind it Oh, the fear of fellow man, it’s mere assignment And everything that we’re denied By keeping the divide It’s not the waking, it’s the rising [Chorus: Hozier & Mavis Staples] And I could cry power (Power), power (Power) Oh, power Nina cried power Lennon cried power James Brown cried power And I could cry (Power) power, (Power) power Hey, power B.B. cried power Joni cried power Nina cried power [Bridge: Mavis Staples] And I could cry power Power has been cried by those stronger than me Straight into the face that tells you to Rattle your chains if you love being free [Chorus: Hozier & Mavis Staples] But I could cry power (Power) ‘Cause power is my love when my love reaches to me James Brown cried power Seeger cried power Marvin cried power Yeah ah, power James cried power Lennon cried power Patti cried power Billie, power Dylan, power Woody, power Nina cried power
