Don’t you bend

Midnight ’til noon, album by Donal DonohoeIf you take a look around you
to see what’s goin’ on
but before you look too far
you know there’s something goin’ wrong
don’t you bend

If you look out of your window
to see what’s goin’ down
but you find that what you see
just makes you turn around
don’t you bend

There’s a tramp in the alley
who drinks until he’s gone
standing in the shadows
singing out a song
all night long

And if you’ve lost your lover
then there’s not much I can say
to ease the pain you feel
it happens everyday
but don’t you bend

You can rise as far
as you can fall
when you start to wonder
if it’s worth it all
don’t you bend
