If I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk
If I need some other love again
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I’ll smile again
Shouldn’t be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Just hold me again

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

If I couldn’t sleep could you sleep
Could you paint me better off
Could you sympathize with my needs
I know you think I need a lot
I started out clean but I’m jaded
Just phoning it in
Just breaking the skin

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Start bending me
It’s never enough
I feel all your pieces
Start bending me
Keep bending me until I’m completely broken in
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Shouldn’t be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Just touch me again
Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Without understanding, and I go there again
Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Yeah, you’re breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
