lyrics

The Power Of Sin

I’ve got a story
I want to tell
Every day of my life’s
Another day in hell
I got no money
No place to stay
Everywhere I go,
They turn me away

I used to have money
I used to have fame
But I did bad things
I’m the one to blame
Power was my drug
Sex was my fling
They went together
Better than anything

I can’t escape the hell I’ve made
My life will never be the same
I can’t escape my sins of old
Lord please save, save my tortured soul

Powerful deals
Powerful lunch
Spending their money
On nothing but a hunch
Well people really hate me
But I don’t mind
I never helped anyone
If they weren’t my kind

It’s the drugs that got me
The scandals too
My hands in the till
I’m forever blue
Well power is seductive
Made me do it
I thought it was easy
But I really blew it

I can’t escape the hell I’ve made
My life will never be the same
Can’t escape the sins I’ve done
My life, my life’s come undone

The story has an ending
It might be good
If I can take it
To Hollywood
To Hollywood
To Hollywood

Scott Leslie Vero Beach, Florida

I’m a self-taught guitarist/songwriter and my influences are from the amazing music of the 60’s and 70's. In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
