​Bend

This song is by Ben Sollee and appears on the album Learning to Bend (2008).

When the storm comes
Will you reject the rain
If it falls not soft
If it falls not tame?

When the wind blows
And calls your name
Will you run in fear
Will you hide in shame?

Are you strong enough to bend?
Yes, don't stand against the wind
Cause you know you're gonna break

When age comes
Will you call me names?
Will you cut me down
Just to ease your pain?

When truth comes
Will you accept the blame?
Cause history will teach us
We were all on those plains

Are you strong enough to bend?
Don't stand against the wind
Cause you know you're gonna break

When love comes
Will you release the reins?
Will you change the words
To the song you sang?

Or when the smoke clears
Will your hope remain
To make some peace
On this land we claimed?

Are you strong enough to bend?
Don't stand against the wind
Cause you know you're gonna break

When the storm comes
Will you reject the rain
If it falls not soft
If it falls not tame?
