Lyrics for The Power
By Elton John

Mail these lyrics to a friend

Duet with Little Richard
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Duets

I have sold myself through and through
I have walked in the darkness too
I've felt a red sun, the living proof
Washed my hands in the honest truth

I have carried this weight time after time
I have bettered the dumb and the blind
I've seen dignity fail and colors run
Seen justice denied by the voice of a gun


And we walk, yes we walk
And we walk with the power every day
Never letting the light slip away


Reaching out, reaching in
Touching truth and touching skin
Never letting the light slip away
And we walk with the power every day


If our faith is a fire then burn baby burn
We've had fire long enough to learn
Keeping me whole is a healing light
Kept alive by the flames of night


Walk tall in the power day after day
Never, never, never lose sight of the way
See the dawn come and the dusk end
See the power rise from an open hand
