I Will Not Be Broken
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


That was then and this is now
I found my way back here somehow
Knew you'd have to let me go
I told you once I told you so

Take me down
You can hold me but you
Can't hold what's within
Pull me round
Push me to the limit
Maybe I may bend
But I know where I'm not going
I will not be broken
I will not be broken
I will not be

Someone other than who I am
I will fight to make my stand
Cause what is livin' if I can't live free

What is freedom if I can't be me

Take me down
You can hold me but you
Can't hold what's within
Pull me round
Push me to the limit
Maybe I may bend
But I know where I'm not going
I will not be broken
I will not be broken
I will not be

I won't let you near it
I will let my spirit fly
Fly
High
Oh take me down

Take me down
You can hold me but you
Can't hold what's within
Pull me round
Push me to the limit
Maybe I may bend
But we both know where I'm not going
I will not be broken
I will not be broken
I will not be

This song reminds me of a girl I knew. When I met her she was going through a nasty divorce where she was mentally abused. We had been dating for awhile but I wasn't able to get pass her shell. She wasn't able to trust again. Even though she was worth the effort I was frustrated and close to giving up. I was driving home from a date with her and thinking about ending it when this song came on the radio. Felt like it was worth fighting for. We have been married 11 years now.
