Hozier feat. Mavis Staples – Nina Cried Power (Video)

Lyrics for “Nina Cried Power” performed by Hozier feat. Mavis Staples

It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’
It is the groundin’ of a foot uncompromisin’
It’s not forgoin’ of the lie
It’s not the openin’ of eyes
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

It’s not the shade we should be cast in
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 wakin’, it’s the risin’

It’s not the song, it is the singin’
It’s the heaven of the human spirit ringin’
It is the bringin’ of the line
It is the bearin’ of the rhyme
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

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)
Power, Lord
Curtis cried power
Patti cried power
Nina cried power

It’s not the war but what’s behind it
Oh, the fear of fellow men is near assignment
And everythin’ that we’re denied by keepin’ the divide
It’s not the wakin’, it’s the risin’

And I could cry power (power)
Power, power (power)
Power, Lord
Nina cried power
Lennon cried power
James Brown cried power

And I could cry power
Power, power (power)
Power, power
B.B. cried power
Joni cried power
Nina cried power

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 bein’ free

Ah, lord I could cry power (power)
‘Cause power is my love when my love reaches to me
James Brown cried power versuri.online
Seger cried power
Marvin cried power

Yeah ah, power
James cried power
Millie cried power
Patti cried power
Billie, power
Dylan, power
Woody, power
Nina cried power…
