I Will Not Be Broken
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


A true love story
Is hard to find
Can't get no rest
Got no peace of mind
You say you gave
Your heart to me
You put me down
You set me free

You said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
I guess you know he is because

Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Always takes you by surprise

There you was
The only one
Coming on me and ruining my fun

Leave me setting
At home all alone
Waitin' on your call by the telephone

You said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
Guess you know you always was deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly

Finally made me realize
That I tried and tried
But you just cant get enough
So you lied, and lied, and lied, and lied
I will not be denied
I'm gonna plant a seed
I will not be denied
Of the man and the love I need

Said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
Guess you know you are because
Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Always takes you by surprise

It's a sad situation
Yes it's true
I can say it baby
I'm through with you
It's over now
And in the past
Gonna find me a man
With a love that'll last

You know he's deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
Guess you know you always been
Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Finally made me realize

That I tried and tried
But you just couldn't get enough
And so you
So you lied, and lied, and lied, and lied
I will not be denied
I will not be
I will not be denied (I will not be denied)

When your hill is high
All the love I needed

I will not be
I will not be denied
I said I will not be
Will not be denied
Will not be denied
I will not be
I will not be denied
I'll tell you one more time
I will not be de'
I will not be denied
I will not be denied
(Yeah) I will not be
I will not be denied

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

I don't know what it is, but her songs are like a fairy godmother to the soul. They just get me through so much

Jan Rowley

Spoke to me tonight. Love her and she was a favorite of the father of our children - a veteran and mensch.

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.
