Bent Love
- By Michael Mair

we’ve been in the shadows
now we’re stepping into the light
ignorance and fear
have been some peoples plight

no time for diversity
no time for change
no time to understand
no need to rearrange

bent love
it’s just another page
bent love
it’s just a part of the stage
bent love
we are coming of age
bent love
freedom from the cage
freedom from the cage

knowledge is the key
knowledge and understanding
open minds set you free
and love is for the taking

we can walk with eyes shut
our heads stuck in the sand
or we can learn from our neighbour
and appreciate our fellow man

bent love
it’s just another page
bent love
it’s just a part of the stage
bent love
we are coming of age
bent love
freedom from the cage
freedom from the cage

love is not black and white
love comes in many colours
love takes us into the light
building a bridge to one another

the walls are falling down
slowly but surely
hearts are making the sound
slowly but surely
slowly but surely

bent love
it’s just another page
bent love
it’s just a part of the stage
bent love
we are coming of age
bent love
freedom from the cage
freedom from the cage
