Broken

When I think back, didn’t know that the life I’d lead would break me
And the ones that I’d be close to would only let me down
I believe in being open but a thief will always get in
And take what’s in your heart

This is for you – you made me feel dirty in my own skin
This is for you – all your promises have done me in
And this is for you – you’ve got to know that your knife’s done bad
I never did nothin’ to you but you could have been
A better friend than stabbing my back
(how could I know that you wouldn’t be there for me?
(how could I know that you’d let me down time and again)

Now I’m not broken any more
I found a cure, or should I say a cure found me
And I’m a better girl than I’ve ever been
I’m not broken any more
You don’t own me now – I’m fixed now

In the nightclub, at a party…I never found my soldier
Who would lie down in the trenches and cover my old ground
I believe in being truthful but a lie is so inviting
To those that bring us down

Now I’m not broken any more
I found a cure, or should I say a cure found me
And I’m a better girl than I’ve ever been
I’m not broken any more
You don’t own me now – I’m fixed now

It was hopeless, I was sinking – couldn’t clear the mess I was in
Then I heard him here beside me, waiting for me to come round
I believe in things that I see and I know that my enemy
Can’t touch what’s in my heart
