Plant tops fall over. Normal??

Some of my anacharis tops fall to one side when the lights are out. Is this normal? They are leaning towards a window, but the shades are always closed on that window. They are the only plant that does this. After the lights have been on for a while they straighten back up

Ok, should I trim them down so they don't do that or let them be?
