lyrics

BEND NOT BREAK

Before you go can I ask you a question?
When's the last time you thought life's worth living?
You may think theres only one way out
Can't see beyond the way you feel right now
But if you just bend, and not break
If you just bend, and not break, at least not today

Now I know that this permanence is tempting
Even on a good day life feels empty
but someones gonna miss you when you're gone
Theres so much more to do if you hold on

But if you just bend, and not break
If you just bend, and not break, at least not today
Not today,
Not today
Not today
Woah not today
Not today, hold on!

Voiceover:
We are not the things we have done
But the things we have overcome
Just take it one day at a time
Because your work here
Is definitely not done. You know

You got a mother got a sister, got a brother
Got a father son and daughter in your life x2

If you just bend, and not break, oh
If you just bend, and not break, at least not today

I can tell by the way you feel its hard to stay strong
In the midst of all this madness, through the darkness
Please hold on, yeah, won't you please hold on, hold on!!

Cause you got a mother got a sister got a brother
In your life,
You got a mother, got a sister, brother, father
son and a daughter, they're living for you.

Children:
You got a mother got a sister, got a brother
Got a father son and daughter in your life x2
