(Tony Joe White)

I've been running low on inspiration
Tired of the physical intrigue
There's nothing left to imagination
Living in a world that treats love so carelessly

Don't want no smooth talkin' lover
I can't play the role
It just leaves me cold

I need a high powered love
I wanna feel that lightning streak
High powered love
Got to be down in the heart with me

Sometimes it's hard to keep believing
Too many pretty faces all skin deep
Now is there anyone left with teeth just a little uneven
And won't spend more time a mirror than he does with me

If you're looking for a good time
A notch on your gun
I ain't the one

I want a high powered love
Got to have intensity
High powered love
Don't start the fire if you can't take the heat

I can't turn back I'm on a mission
I know there's someone out there for me

I need a high powered love
One that'll defy gravity
High powered love
Got to be strong and keep on lifting me

Yeah I need a high powered love
I wanna feel the lightning streak
High powered love
Got to be down in the heart with me
Got to be down in the heart with me
