Let me give it all to the very small things
That leaves me...powerless
I see my face from another time
From another day gone by (good-bye)
Arrogant and fast
A smile that leaks onto the saddest things
I know I know then what I don't know now
What I'll never know again
Smaller now
Powerless
Finding some shoes
Losing your feet
Finding some food
Losing your teeth
There was a time when the world was mine
Now it's yours and I'm...powerless
I hear your voice from another time
From a day yet to come (here it comes)
Beautiful and slow
A tear that washes through the gladdest things
Now I've forgotten how not to give it all to the
Very small joy that leaves me in tears and...closer now
Powerless
