Lilac Bush bent over from winter, it's in a tricky spot!

I'm trying to help get a lilac bush back up after it bent over after a harsh winter... the weird thing is there doesn't appear to be any damage, it's almost as it it literally bent like rubber at the base and turned hard again. Looking at it I'd think it grew that way. I've tried lifting it up but it's quite heavy. Apparently it's still very much alive as it's started growing buds!

I've attached a link to a pic, I'd love to get it up and attach it to a stake but there's a neighbor's house in the way... Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about getting it back up?

Thanks so much for any help!
