Bend And Not Break

This song is by Dashboard Confessional and appears on the album A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar (2003).

Original video
I catalogue these steps now
Decisive and intentioned
Precise and patterned specifically to yours
I'm talented at breathing
Especially exhaling
So that my chest will rise and fall with yours

I'm careful not to wake you
Fearing conversation
It's better just to hold you and keep you pacified
I'm talented with reason
I cover all the angles
I can fail before I ever try

Try to understand there's an old mistake
That fools will make and
I'm the king of them
Pushing everything that's good away so

Won't you hold me now?
(I will not bend, I will not break)
Won't you hold me now?
(I will not bend, I will not break)

I am fairly agile
I can bend and not break
Or I can break and take it with a smile
And I am so resilient
I recover quickly
I'll convince you soon that I am fine

Try to understand there's an old mistake
That fools will make and
I'm the king of them
Pushing everything that's good away so

Won't you hold me now?
(I will not bend, I will not break)
Won't you hold me now?
(For you I rise, for you I fall)

Just hold me close to you
Just hold me close to you
Just hold me close to you
(Won't you hold me now?)
Just hold me close to you
(Won't you hold me now?)

Try to understand there's an old mistake
That fools will make and
I'm the king of them
Pushing everything that's good away so

Won't you hold me now?
Won't you hold me now?
