Lyrics of I Won't Break

My heart is in command No longer in the dark My castle in the sand Is now made of stone and rock The memory I knew The things I've been through And everything I do Has got me living by the minute And now that I'm in it Now that I'm in it... I won't break I won’t break When it comes to emotions From the deepest of oceans Coming straight from my heart I won’t give in to the motions Those so called broken wings Are soaring to the sky I've flown with kings and queens With freedom in their eyes I won't break I won’t break When it comes to emotions From the deepest of oceans Coming straight from my heart I won’t give in to the motions Cause even in the darkness Cause even in the darkest night Cause even in the darkness I can see a light Cause even the darkness... I won't break (Cause even in the darkness Cause even in the darkest night Cause even in the darkness I can see a light) I won’t break (Cause even in the darkness My heart is in command No longer in the dark) I won't break (Cause even in the darkness Cause even in the darkest night Cause even in the darkness...) My heart is in command No longer in the dark
