That was then and this is now
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
Roll 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 living 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
Roll 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 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
Roll 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 broken
