Elastic Heart Lyrics
And another one bites the dust
Oh why can I not conquer love
And I might have thought that we were one
Wanted to fight this war without weapons

And I wanted it, I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
Yeah let's be clear, I'll trust no one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart

I've got an elastic heart
Yeah I've got an elastic heart

And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I'll walk through fire to save my life

And I want it, I want my life so bad
I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It's hard to lose a chosen one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart
[x3]

I've got an elastic heart

Elastic Heart Info:

• The song was originally recorded for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. She later re-recorded a solo version for her own album 1000 Forms Of Fear

• Sia first wrote the song hoping that Katy Perry would record it, Perry passed, so the she decided to do her own vocal.

• The video for the song faced criticism due to the depiction of a nearly naked adult and child dancing together, being accused of depicting images that may induce triggers to victims of pedophilia.

Sia later apologised on Twitter: "All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring 'Sia' self states. I [apologise] to those who feel triggered by 'Elastic Heart'. My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.
