Gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around,
And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down,
Gonna stand my ground and I won’t back down.
Tom Petty makes feel-good music for any occasion, and “I Won’t Back Down” is one of his most inspirational songs. It’s simple, and the lyrics aren’t complicated or confusing. He talks about standing your ground and not letting the world or outside factors bring you down:
Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground and I won’t back down
Never let anybody or anything stand in the way of what you want to do! If you believe that what you’re doing is important, then prove it by having confidence in yourself and never letting your goal be diminished. Don’t back down, and don’t quit on something just because it’s difficult!
