Intro
Baby, Powerless
I'm about, I'm about to leave you
I'm about to leave you powerless

Verse 1:
You held me down for too long
Batter charged up now I'm on
I'll flip your breaker now
And take your recharging off of me
Drain me emotionally
Though I could ride on empty
So I brought a back up
Knowing you'd be back up in the outlet
I feel

Pre-Chorus:
(Pull the)
Electricity (power)
This is it for me
It's about to be, It's about to be lights out
(Pull the)
This is History (siren)
Solve the mystery
It's about to be, It's about to be lights out

Chorus
What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about, I'm about to leave you)
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

Verse 2:
Now that your circuit is blown
In the dark and you alone
Taking out your fuses
Now you're just useless
No more doing me wrong
Stole all of my energy
Couldn't just, just let me be
Thought you was golden
Now I'm withholding everything that you need

Pre-Chorus:
(Pull the)
Electricity (power)
This is it for me
It's about to be, It's about to be lights out
(Pull the)
This is History (siren)
Solve the mystery
It's about to be, It's about to be lights out

Chorus
What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about, I'm about to leave you)
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

Bridge
Your body's having a blackout
Before you ask what's that about
Let's recall how you tapped right into me
Used up all of my life line
Took too much of my life
I'm putting all of the power back into me

Chorus:
What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

What you think this is
I'm bout to flip off the switch
And shut it down baby
I'm bout to leave you powerless-less
Leave you powerless-less
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about, I'm about to leave you)
Is it a false alarm
(I'm about to leave you powerless)

Outro:
(Flip off the switch and shut it down baby)
I'm about, I'm about to leave you
I'm about to leave you powerless
