Lyrics

Bend Lyrics:

You see that willow up on the hill
It's weathered storms in solitude
Listen as if you were the wind
It will speak to you as it sways
'bout love and life and give and take
How if you bend, then you will never break

That big old oak tree took a great big fall
It's roots were shallow thought it was tall
It couldn't stand when the cold winds blew
Just like that tree I fell
For something that could never be.
Uprooted. You broke me in two.

Chorus:
I've got to bend and forgive
Compromise so I can live
With no anger no sadness no hate
It's time I make peace and say goodbye to who
I was before the lies
I've got to bend, bend, bend so I don't break

The lesson's easy and so true
Seems our egos tell us what to do
I can let go now, so I think I will
Just like the willow on the hill
I've finally learned for Heaven's Sake
To bend so I will never break

The lesson's easy, easy.

Repeat Chorus

See something new; I wanna see something new
Fresh point of view; Oh, let me open my eyes

See something new: Embracing life after you
Fresh point of view; oh oh open my eyes
Bend and forgive
Compromise so I can live with no anger no sadness no hate
Oh
It's time I make peace and say goodbye to who
I was before all the lies I've got to
Bend, bend bend so I don’t break. Bend yeah..
Bend
