Bend (Joseph) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I am not my family tree
These are different leaves, you know
There are miles and miles between
My roots and what I'm trying to grow
Verse 2
I am not the slave they sold
Nor am I royalty
I've worn them both, the finest coat
And rags that barely cover me
Verse 3
But there's mercy in the soil, mercy in the sun
Learning to forgive, what cannot be undone
And what was meant to harm can't harm you in the end
Stepped out on a limb I thought might break
But love said, it will only bend
It will only bend
Verse 4
I am not my past mistakes
Labelled by some place and time
Nor am I trophy case
Trying to maintain my shine
Verse 5
I have dreamed a thousand dreams
Watched a grain in famine, grow
I am not my family tree
I have branches of my own
Verse 6
But there's mercy in the soil, mercy in the sun
Learning to forgive, what cannot be undone
And what was meant to harm can't harm you in the end
Stepped out on a limb I thought might break
But Love said, it will only bend
It will only bend
Verse 7
Oh, does fate resign us to
Find shelter for our wounds
Beneath the battered roof of broken dreams?
Oh, but I will choose to stand
In the shadow of your hand
And see what grows when grace has sown the seed
