Twist and bend it, twist and bend it
A broken heart takes a little time to mend
Rip and tear it, rip and tear it
Forget the pain, shake it off and leave it there

I had to laugh at the way that you tried
Every known trick of its kind
You've done more than your share of dishin' it out
Let's see what it feels like
For you to be stuck for a ride

Twist and bend it, twist and bend it
It's such a shame, you don't have a thing to blame
Crack and peel it, crack and peel it
Listen to me, cut the crap and let it be

You went out lookin' for some fast relief
Got torn to pieces by the strain
I see the future and it don't look good
Alone in the darkness
And counting all your ill-gotten gains

Twist and bend it, twist and bend it
A broken heart takes a little while to mend

People tell me I'm the lucky one sometimes
They don't know it's only in their eyes
If it ever gets to be unreal at times
Tell them so, don't let 'em in for free
You've paid a nominal fee

I just can't stand it, I just can't stand it
It isn't bad, shoot the juice and wipe your hands

I had to laugh at the way that you tried
Every trick under the sun
I told you not to let it get you down
You miss it, you hit it
As long as you can stick to your guns

Twist and bend it, twist and bend it
A broken heart takes a little while to mend
