If you do not bend you will eventually break
Unless you make the wind stop blowing your way
We were like two kids blowing on each other with two straws
Only I was willing to stop and listen to yours

You say you do not want me because I want too much
And I almost let you patronize me one last time
But I don't want too much I just want more than you've got
So the lack is not with either, we are merely a different size

Don't forget regret it is a waste of an emotion
And acceptance is the key to peace, do not try to defy her
No I'm not sad we met and slept together in the same bed
I bent, I curved, I lent, I learnt, I'm stronger
 
You did not do me wrong, in fact you did me right
To let me go although I felt so broken
For you did not see the heart of me perhaps you were too lazy
And though I tried I could not gain the heart of you either

So now it's done and I am glad that I will find another man
Though you will always be the first I tasted
And I will harness all this pain and let it bear me far away
I would not let this happening be wasted

If you do not bend you will eventually break
Unless you make the wind stop blowing away
And we were like two kids blowing on each other with two straws
Only I was willing to stop and listen to yours
