  • Been there, done that, messed around
    I'm having fun; don't put me down
    I'll never let you sweep me off my feet

    I won't let you in again
    The messages I've tried to send
    My information's just not going in

    Burning bridges shore to shore
    I'll break away from something more
    I'm not turned on to love until it's cheap

    Been there, done that, messed around
    I'm having fun; don't put me down
    I'll never let you sweep me off my feet

    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof

    I won't let you turn around
    And tell me now I'm much too proud
    To walk away from something when it's dead

    Do, do, do your dirty words
    Come out to play when you are hurt
    There's certain things that should be left unsaid

    Tick, tick, tick, tick on the watch
    And life's too short for me to stop
    Oh, baby, your time is running out

    I won't let you turn around
    And tell me now I'm much too proud
    All you do is fill me up with doubt

    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof

    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof

    This time baby
    I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time baby
    I'll be
    Bulletproof

    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof

    This time, baby, I'll be
    Bulletproof
    This time, baby, I'll be

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOMG! I LOVE THIS SONG! It's just so amazing! It sounds so old, but so modern at the same time. SO AWESOME!!!
  • Beth from N/a, VaAt first, I thought the video-game music at the opening was a little cheesy, but the lyrics are really good. This may be one of her best songs. She puts off a confident, sexy vibe.
  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyThis song basically sums up what I am going thru at the moment....a guy that is in and out of my life and this time I am (like the song) BULLETPROOF! Well said, cleverly sung! :-)
  • Kim from Mobile, AlI absolutley love this song. It couldn't have come at a better time, I have a situation I need to get away from. When she comments above that you have to watch how you do love songs, she's right. Instead of them making you feel worse, this one just pumps me up and makes me feel like I can really get through it. Which it what a great song should consist of!! :)
  • Charlie from London, United Kingdomshe's gorgeous. i love her eyes.
