Verse 1

I'm bending and about to break , so tired and feeling weak

I'm vulnerable to mistakes, I didn't used make, I am staring at defeat

I'm struggling to address all those shortcomings I've suppressed

so many things I wished I'd changed and now I regret I'm powerless

1st chorus

like a sinking boat in a stormy sea with out a sail

like a speeding train running out track soon I will derail

so powerless as the light fades from your eyes

I pray for a miracle , before all hope dies

2nd Verse

I'm trying to swim upstream, no one hears my frantic calls

the River toys and drowns & laughs at me as I 'm heading for the falls

Like bird with a broken wing I've lost control of so many things

I'm Crumbling under the stress I'm powerless


Like the frightened boy at the leaking dyke with the water breaking through

Every time I plug another hole it gets replaced by two

I'm running out out of fingers what more can I do I'm powerless

2nd chorus

so powerless as the light fades from eyes I pray for a miracle , before all hope dies

so powerless as I watch you slip away I've done everything I know how to do

And it's all been in vain, I'm Powerless , I'm Powerless
