Powerful Man lyrics

Sun setting on the street
Your dad told you not to look at me
Down came the fist hard, upon your head

I was the young, the other and daughter of
I was the young, the other, the daughter of
I was 18, you were 8 maybe, you were 10

He said she's not gonna help you
He said she's not
I just thought he's a powerful man
I just thought he's a powerful man
I just thought he's a drunk, a powerful man

My good friend convinced me to turn around
My good friend says I think I saw a light on
We walk through the dead house
Looking for teachers and we found one
But she didn't look too happy to see us
She didn't look too happy to see us
How should I know she said that man
You just described could be anyone

He said she's not gonna help you
He said she's not
I just thought he looked a powerful man
I just thought he looked a powerful man

[guitar solo]

(x3)
I just thought he looked a powerful man
I just thought he looked a powerful man
