Strong enough to bend

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Over the last few days my girl and I have been dealing with some issues, and it reminded me of the song ‘Strong Enough to Bend’ by Tanya Tucker.

Strong Enough to Bend
 
There’s a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
And the reason its still standing
It was strong enough to bend
 
For years, we have stayed together
As lovers and as friends
What we have will last forever
If we’re strong enough to bend
 
When you say something that you can’t take back
Big wind blows and you hear a little crack
When you say “Hey well I might be wrong”
You can sway with the wind till the storm is gone
Sway with the wind till the storm is gone
 
Like a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
Our love will last forever
If we’re strong enough to bend
When you start thinkin’ that you know it all
Big wind blows and a branch will fall

When you say “Hey this job takes two”
We can sway with the wind till the skies turn blue
Sway with the wind till the skies turn blue
 
Like a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
Our love will last forever if we’re strong enough to bend
Our love will last forever if we’re strong enough to bend
