Lyrics

Not broken down              

(Verse 1)

The years have left their marks

I got my share of rust

My heart's been under wraps

Just gathering dust.

I see how you could think it

I might think it too

If I was eyeing me

With the gaze I see from you.

 (Pre chorus)

But I'm not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Earned my crown of thorns

Back when life was hard

 (Chorus)

Not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Not broken down

Still pushing hard  

 (Verse 2)

The nights crackle with sparks

Bomb blasts ignite the sky

My obituary's been writ

But I refuse to die.

I know the world thinks it

I might think it too

Too old to still make it

But what's a guy to do.

 (Pre chorus)

Well, I'm not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Earned my crown of thorns

Back when life was hard

 (Chorus)

Not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Not broken down

Still pushing hard

 (Verse 3)

I've worked through my hard days

And learned to love my scars

I dusted off my heart

And oiled its working parts.

I know that I can do it

You can do it too

No barrier can stop us

We're gonna make it through.

 (Pre chorus)

No, I'm not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Earned my crown of thorns

Back when life was hard

 (Chorus)

Not broken down

Not ready for the scrapyard

Not broken down

Still pushing hard
