"The Power Of..." as written by Allison Margaret Pierce and Catherine Eleanor Pierce....
And it was the final straw
Though I never knew just what he saw
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never underestimate
The power of'

He could bring me to my knees
Though I never saw just what he sees
I was callin' out for him
He never turned
I was callin' out for him
I never learned

Never'. Ever'.
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never' Ever'
Never underestimate
The power of'

Saw you walking down the street
Those Velcro sneakers on your feet
You were walking faster than
I could run
I was walking in the shade
And you, the sun

Now we can watch it fall
Cause they built it up to tall
Now I'm sinking lower than
All my tears
Sinking lower than
All your fears

Never' Ever'
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never' Ever'
Never underestimate
The power of'

Mmmm
Mmmm

Boy you've got a lot to learn
Wait until it is my turn
And, you stand ever

Never' Ever'
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never' Ever'
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never underestimate
The power of'
Never underestimate
The power of'

    General CommentThis is my favorite song from Thirteen Tales Of Love And Revenge. I see it as very spritual (even if I am not). At first it seems like, and could possibly be, talking about a love. So really, either way could work.

    General Commenti think it trails off after "the power of.." because it's definitely not about love. i think it's about them breaking apart and her realizing it wasn't love the whole time. and how the whole relationship was set up to fail.."now we can watch it fall, cause they built it up too tall." the first time i heard it i had just broken up with someone so i always initiate it with that even if maybe it isn't that at all..lol but that's what i love about it also, it doesn't have to have just one meaning.

    General CommentI always think of the quote "never underestimate the power of denial", of American Beauty. It fits nicely to Holly's interpretation too. They knew it couldn't work, they just denied it, and went for it anyway.
