Lyrics

Unchained Melody version

Sly as a fox
Quick as a bee
You are as slick as a fish in the sea
Planting your words
Deep in my brain
Making my friends think I'm going insane

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

I have a heart
Beating inside
I would show you, but your eyes are too blind
You are so cool
Running your game
Playing these tricks and avoiding the blame

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

I am kicking ass and raising hell
You will wish that you were saved by the bell
Watch me flexing all my reborn strength
To escape me you would go any length

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

SIR 2004-05-08 version

Sly as a fox
Quick as a bee
Slick as a fish way down deep in the sea
You are a mage
Casting your spell
Pity you don't know the magic so well

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

I got a gift
Something you don't
Pray as you might that you will, you just won't
Better step back
Give him some room
Messing with me will lead you to your doom

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

Kicking ass and raising hell
You will wish that you were saved by the bell
Watch me flexing all my reborn strength
To escape me you would go any length

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

SIR 2004-04-23 version

Holding my heart
Feeling the beat
Never content to admit defeat
Look at you now
My, how you've grown
Ready to reap all the seed that you've sown

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

How does it feel
Knowing you won
Moving the stars and the moon and the sun
Looking around
Seeing the truth
There is not much more that you can undo

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die

All my loving
All my loving
All my loving
I want to give you

All my loving
All my loving
All my loving
I'll give to you

You'll never break me
You'll never break me
You'll never see me cry
You'll never break me
You'll never break me
Until the day we die
