Powerless (Say What You Want) by Nelly Furtado

Paint my (1)________ in your magazines
Make it look (2)____________ than it seems
Paint me over (3)________ your dreams
Shove away my ethnicity
Burn every (4)____________ that I
May have a flame inside to fight
And say just what is on my mind
Without offending (5)________ might
'Cuz (6)________ life
Is too short
To (7)________ it just
For you
But (8)________ you feel
So powerless
What are you gonna do?
So say what you want

Say what you want

I saw her face (9)______________ today
Weatherworn, (10)______________ all the rage
They (11)________ her passion and her gaze
And made a poster
Now it’s moccasins we sport
We (12)________ the culture and contort
Perhaps only to distort what we are hiding
'Cuz this life
Is too short
To live it just
For you
But when you feel
So powerless
What are you gonna do?
But say what you want

Say (13)________ you want
Say, say...

Hey you, the one, the one outside
Are you gonna get in, get in?
Hey you, the one that don’t fit in
How ya, how ya gonna get in?
Hey you, the one outside
Are you ever gonna get in (14)________ your
Broken teeth, broken jaw, broken mojo?
Yeah this life
Is too short to (15)________ it (16)________ for you
But when you feel so powerless
What are you gonna do?
'Cuz (17)________ life
Is too short
To live it just
For you
But when you feel
So powerless
What are you gonna do?
'Cuz (18)________ life
Is too short
To (19)________ it just
For you
But when you feel
So powerless
What are you (20)__________ do?
Say what you want
Say (21)________ you want
Say what you want
Say (22)________ you want
Say (23)________ you want
Say (24)________ you want
Say, say, say, say...
Life is too short
Just for you
Feel powerless
Gonna do
