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