Break Me

Struggle, Strength, Reclamation 

Lyrics by Leslie Benson, 2009

You say you give, but you
take, take, take.
You want to mend, but you
break, break, break
(down) everything in your way,
everything in your way.

But you can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.

Every story’s got a
hero and a
villain, except this one.
Every story’s got an
ending, a beginning,
out of nothing.

Don’t try so
hard, don’t move so
fast. You ain’t got
nothing but time.
Just have some
faith. You’ll find your
way, eventually.

But you can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me!
You can’t break me.
You can’t break me.
You can’t break what’s already broken.

About the Song

“I’m not as fragile as you think,” she thought to herself, fists clenched and feet planted firm on the ground. Although her innocence peaked through with radiance unknown to him, she felt herself fighting back as she shattered like porcelain to the ground.

Singer-songwriter Leslie I. Benson tells a story of strength and forgiveness in “Break Me,” a song written shortly after the completion of album one, Closer to Home.

“Every hero’s got a villain inside him,” Benson says. “It’s a battle within. Who knows who’s winning?”
