Power Lyrics by Peter, Paul & Mary

Power Lyrics

    Just give me the warm power of the sun
    Give me the steady flow of a waterfall
    Give me the spirit of living things as they return to clay.
    Just give me the restless power of the wind
    Give me the comforting glow of a wood fire
    But please take all of your atomic poison power away.

    Everybody needs some power i'm told
    To shield them from the darkness and the cold
    Some may see a way to take control when it's bought and sold.

    I know that lives are at stake
    Yours and mine and our descendants in time.
    There's so much to gain, so much to lose
    Everyone of us has to choose.


    We are only now beginning to see
    How delicate the balance of nature can be
    The limits of her ways have been defined
    And we've crossed that line.

    Some don't even care or know that we'll pay
    But we have seen the face of death in our day.
    There's so little time to change our ways
    If only we together can say


    All of your atomic poison power
    All of your atomic poison power
