There’s a phrase saying: “Everyday’s a little harder, as I feel my power grow”

Isn’t it supposed to be ‘grows’ instead of ‘grow’ going by the fact that ‘my power’ is considered as 3rd person singular?

    No, it uses the infinitive in that construction. The only two correct forms of grow in that construction are grow and growing. In a different construction (my power grows daily) you would be correct. But here, the fact that it's preceded by as I feel changes things. – Jason Bassford May 8 at 4:17
