Bend And Break


[Regarding "the other side" and "white light" references] "In Bend and break that phrase is more about getting through a really dark state of mind and emerging into brighter, happier times. The old saying 'the darkest hour is just before the dawn' is very true and potent i think. People often say that with proper depression, things can seem unbearably awful as your thoughts run around each other in the dark of the night but when the sun rises you can get more perspective and see things in a more hopeful way. See Patrick Humphries' book on nick drake for his thoughts on how this phenomenon affected that great songwriter. Anyway for me I've always loved the mornings...the day is new and full of possibilities. The song reminds me of when I was young and in the mornings I'd phone Tom or Richard or other friends and we'd make plans to meet up in town or play football or whatever. I still feel the same way...for example I always write songs best early in the morning." - Tim - Messageboard - Source
