Unbroken lyrics — María Ólafsdóttir (Iceland)

During the final of Iceland’s Eurovision 2015 selection, María Ólafsdóttir was flying high. Her voice was powerful, she channeled confidence, and she looked so sprightly and adorbs that you wanted to squeeze her cheeks. But lil’ Miss Maria  also sounded like she knows a thing about perseverance and overcoming obstacles. The Unbroken lyrics tell the story of a woman rebuilding her life, most likely after the breakdown of a relationship. She knows you have to do this day by day and step by step: “A step at a time, Get out of the darkness, And into the light, Forever, A step at a time, I pick up the pieces, Try putting them back together, Till I’m unbroken…”

Unbroken lyrics — María Ólafsdóttir

Step at a time
into the distance
one foot in front of the other

A step at a time
try to forget you
although you said forever

I’m letting go
Go

A step at a time
Get out of the darkness
And into the light
Forever

A step at a time
I pick up the pieces
Try putting them back together

Till I’m unbroken
Unbroken
A step at a time
Get out of the darkness
And into the light
Forever

A step at a time
And I’ve got a feeling
It’s either now or never
I’m letting go
Go

A step at a time
Get out of the darkness
And into the light
Forever

A step at a time
I pick up the pieces
Try putting them back together

Till I’m unbroken
Unbroken
A step at a time
Get out of the darkness
And into the light
Forever

I’m letting go
Go

Go

Time

I pick up the pieces
Try putting them back together
Till I’m unbroken
Unbroken

Yeah, yeah…
Yeah, yeah…

Forever
