Powerless (Say What You Want) by Nelly Furtado

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

Say (4)________ you want

I saw her face outside today
Weatherworn, looking all the rage
They took her passion and her gaze
And (5)________ a poster
Now it’s moccasins we sport
We (6)________ 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 what you want
Say, say...

Hey you, the one, the one outside
Are you (7)__________ 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 (8)________ gonna get in with your
Broken teeth, broken jaw, broken mojo?
Yeah (9)________ life
Is too short to live it just for you
But when you feel so powerless
What are you gonna do?
'Cuz this life
Is too short
To live it just
For you
But when you feel
So powerless
What are you gonna do?
'Cuz this life
Is too short
To live it just
For you
But when you feel
So powerless
What are you gonna do?
Say what you want
Say (10)________ you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say what you want
Say, say, say, say...
Life is too short
Just for you
Feel powerless
Gonna do
