I’m Not Going (lyrics)

This is a wicked world
Full of crooks and fools and kings
I am a wicked girl
American tragic, twisted magic, poison in my rings
I am soaked in sin
And I am punished for my dreams
They wanna lock me in
Iced and wrapped in moonlight satin
Kept but never seen

It was cold as a war
The sky went black at four
I was hollow-eyed and hopeful,
Like a tunnel with its end in sight
They couldn’t keep me in
I’m not afraid of the light
Cuz I’ve got diamonds in my bones
I can shine alone in the shadow of your darkest night
So I said no
I’m not going down

Now that my love is gone
A hard rain is gonna fall
And I guess I got it wrong
So I roll with the thunder,
Take me under
Wait for god to call

And it’s still cold in the north
But there is a distant shore
I can see it flicker
Like a picture inside myself
I settle in for the night
I don’t need no one else
Cuz I’ve got diamonds in my bones
I can shine alone in the corner of your darkest hell
So I’m saying no
I’m not going down
