The lyrics to “Bent” by Matchbox 20 resonated with me today.

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, then
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
Oh, just hold me again

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep 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
Oh, just breaking the skin

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent

Start bending me, it’s never enough
As I feel all your pieces
Start bending me, keep bending me
Oh, until I’m completely broken in

Shouldn’t be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Oh, just touch me again

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Keep breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me will let them
Without understanding
Here I go there again

Can you help me I’m bent
I’m so scared that I’ll never
Get put back together
Yeah, you’re breaking me in
And this is how we will end
With you and me bent
