"Dangerous Power" as written by Jan David Streater Burton and N Writer Unknown....
You lost the soul
You're out of control
Your demon siding with you
No sense to your vice
In plastic you hide
I tried, and I failed to teach you

Like a flower I want to be
The sun that you grow to
I long to change you

Open your mind
The loss you don't find
The strength designed to reach you
Destruction finds
The weak and the blind
It tears you up, and it eats you

Like a flower I want to be
The sun that you grow to
Dangerous power between you and me
How I long to change you

Failure comes as passion goes
Too much time has slipped away
All I see anymore is history

Like a flower I want to be
The sun that you grow to
I long to change you

Like a flower I want to be
The one that you grow to

Like a flower I want to be
The one that you grow to
Dangerous power between you and me
How I long to save you

    General CommentI really really love this song.
    Although, I'm not quite sure what it means.
    There are two things I think this song is about...
    I think it's about a father and his daughter who got into drugs, alchohol, etc etc. Hence the whole "You lost the soul
    You’re out of control
    Your demon siding with you
    No sense to your vice
    In plastic you hide
    I tried and I failed to teach you"

    And the whole flower part is about how he wanted her to grow up with him, to learn from him, and how he failed and wishes he could "change her"
    For the next part, "All I see anymore is history" is how it's too late to change her.

    My other guess would be that this is a love song. The whole first part would how she's in love with someone else, but she wishes she wasn't. He, the guy who is in love with her, wants to "teach her" that the guy she's in love with doesn't love her back, but rather that HE loves her.
    Again, the whole flower thing is about growing and learning with each other. I think it would be like, their first kiss, et etc.
    I don't know.

    General CommentThis song is about a famous young woman, could easily be related to Lindsay Lohan who is astranged from her father.. A young starlett that is partying and out of control. The father wanting his daughter to change his behavior and grow to the "Flower" the "Little girl" he always knew and the mature woman he wanted her to become. The "Dangerous Power" is the power that her celebrity has. The Dangerous power is what is keeping them apart.

    General Commenti thought the "dangerous Power" was an out of control emotion between the two people. I think the narrator of the song is talking about how he tried to guide someone he loved and it failed. Especially at the end when he says "all i see anymore is history" as in there is nothing that can continue between them. I have to admit this is a song i found a hard time understanding and relating too.

    General CommentThe dangerous power is their passion for each other. Bigger than both greater than the sum of its parts its overwhelming and if they can't walk away from it it's going to implode on them destroy everything. Like their marriages and such. I want to be your everything the sun that you grow to. But walking away and all he sees is history. The times and the passion that they had together before, their past together....maybe.

    General CommentIt seems to be about a girl wanting to live like a celebrity shes spending money like its nothing " No sense to your vice, in plastic you hide" sounds like the credit card is a habit. He sees this as her friend, or a lover and wants to help her, wants to be her rolemodel, before she self destructs, proberly partying alot and taking drugs. If she loses the passion for wanting to change then theres no hope for her "Failure comes as passion goes, Too much time has slipped away, All I see anymore is history"
    "Dangerous power" is what she has, while shes living like this, everything is good, but its dangerous because eventually she will have nothing.
