"Bruised But Not Broken" as written by and Diane Warren....
Been a lot that I've been through
I've cried a tear a time or two
Baby, you know I cried from over you
Had my heart kicked to the ground
Love ripped me up and tore me down
Baby, but that ain't enough to break me
'Cause I supply loving
And I paint myself
And I trust the pain of my heart

[Chorus]
And I'll be all right
And I'll love again
And the wounds will mend
I'm bruised but not broken
And the pain will fade
I'll overcome my fear
Is not the end of me
My heart is still open now
I'm bruised but not broken

Been a lot of tears denied
I thought the tears were...
Baby, the hurt came ahead of time
I took a chance, I took a fall
Love broke my heart and shattered all my dreams
But I won't be down on my knees
'Cause I supply loving
And I paint myself
And I shake the rain out of my heart

[Chorus]

Gonna paint my heart
Obtain my life that shake the hurt away
Pull myself together
Put the pieces back in place
See, I've learned
Loved so hard
Love...
I'm so scarred
I'm shattered inside
You shattered me, baby

[Chorus x 2]

    General Commentto me, this song is about a person's inner strength... they've been hurt, but instead of allowing it to completely break them, they decide to acknowledge the pain, then make attempts at moving past it.

    she says i'm bruised, as in yes, this has hurt me... but i'm strong woman, and i'm not going to give up...

    i love the line "and i'll love again," because often after heartbreak, people give up on love, or are afraid of it. in this song she is saying that she wont give up on love, and i feel that that is a sign of a good, healthy, strong outlook on life.
