Nina Cried Power (Live)
by Hozier, ft. Mavis Staples
From the "Nina Cried Power" 4 song EP which was released in September, Hozier performs his song on the TV show Ellen, with Mavis Staples.

Here is a link to the official video, https://youtu.be/j2YgDua2gpk , which has Booker T. Jones on organ. The video features activists. According to Hozier, "This song was intended as a thank you note to the spirit and legacy of protest; to the artists who imbued their work with the vigour of dissent, and a reflection on the importance of that tradition in the context of the rights, and lives, we enjoy today."

"It's not the waking, it's the rising
It is the grounding of a foot uncompromising
It's not forgoing of the lie
It's not the opening of eyes
It's not the waking, it's the rising

It's not the shade, we should be past it
It's the light and it's the obstacle that casts it
It's the heat that drives the light
It's the fire it ignites
It's not the waking, it's the rising

It's not the song, it’s the singing
It's the heaven of the human spirit ringing
It is the bringing of the line
It is the baring of the rhyme
It's not the waking, it's the rising

And I could cry power (power)
Power (power)
Power (power)
Nina cried power
Billie cried power
Mavis cried power

And I could cry power
Power (power)
Power (power)
Power
Curtis cried power
Patti cried power
Nina cried power

It's not the wall but what's behind it
Oh, the fear of fellow man, his mere assignment
And everything that we're denied by keeping the divide
It's not the waking, it's the rising

And I could cry power (power)
Power (power)
Oh, power
Nina cried power
Lennon cried power
James Brown cried power
And I could cry power
Power (power)
Power (power)
Power, lord
B.B. cried power
Joni cried power
Nina cried power

And I could cry power
Power has been cried by those stronger than me
Straight into the face that tells you
To rattle your chains if you love being free

I could cry power (power)
And power is my love when my love reaches to me
James Brown cried power
Seeger cried power
Marvin cried power
Yeah ah, power
James cried power
Lennon cried power
Patti cried power
Billie, power
Dylan, power
Woody, power
Nina cried power"

Enjoy!
