"Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic." -The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde


Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we snap
Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we crack
I have bent in the windstorms
And you were there to make me straight again
You have never swayed in the windstorms
Because you never let the breeze touch your skin
Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we snap
Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we crack
I am stronger now
Stronger than ever before
I will never break again
But you are swaying now
And I am unsure
If I am strong enough to make you straight again
So sway, my love
As the breeze finally touches your skin
So break, my love
The wind might not blow this way again
I might not be strong in the end
We may get broken by the wind
But at least the breeze
Touched our skin
Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we snap
Bend and break
Bend and break
We sway in the wind ‘til we crack
