Power, and control.
Give a little, get a lot,
That's just how you are with love.
Give a little, get a lot,
Yeah you may be good looking,
But you're not a piece of art.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Women and men we are the same,
And still we play the stupid game,
Of love and now a virgin whore,
I've played it but not anymore.
Think you're funny, think you're smart,
Think you're gonna break my heart.
Think you're funny, think you're smart,
Yeah you may be good looking,
But you're not a piece of art.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Women and men we are the same,
And still we play the stupid game,
I shouldn't win ability,
Doesn't mean that I am weak.
That I am weak, I am weak,
I am weak, I am weak, weak,
(Ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah), weak,
(Ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah), weak,
(Ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah), weak,
(Ah-ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah), weak,
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Women and men we are the same,
But love, but love, must be a game.
We give and take a little more,
Eternal game of love and war.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
Power and control,
I'm gonna make you fall.
I'm gonna make you fall,
We give and take a little more,
'Cause all my life I've been controlled,
You can't have peace without a war,
Without a war, without a war.

    These lyrics are wrong!

    First chorus should be:
    Women and men, we are the same
    But love will always be a game
    We give and take a little more
    Eternal game of tug and war

    Second chorus:
    Women and men, we are the same
    But love will always be a game
    A human vulnerability
    Does not mean that i am weak
