Power (live)

by Saffron A



This song is about our power as people-individually and collectively. These times of quarantine are uncertain for most, and for folks experiencing domestic violence it is beyond terrifying. Before COVID-19, intimate partner violence was on the rise in Canada. Now with enforced isolation, there has been a surge. Women’s Shelters and Sexual Assault Centres have had to endure cuts in funding as the need for their services grows.

Power was recorded live at one of my last concerts before quarantine. 50% of the proceeds from this song will be donated to my local sexual assault centre to to support their work in my community.



I am a star
solar flares, black holes and all
I will die a supernova
I am a star
you'll see me in a constellation
shining brighter than I could
by my own power

I am the moon
waxing and waning
ever changing in the night
I am the moon
shifting the tides but
I am a constant in the sky

I am the sun
I will burn upon the earth
until my time is done
I am the sun
if you stare directly at me
you still won't know my power

I am a star
I am a solar flare
I am the moon
shifting the tides and
I am the sun
I will burn upon the earth
I have power beyond what I've known

I have power beyond what I've known
I have power beyond what I've shown
