Heard you say, we hit another pothole,
I’ll count the dust, it settles in your hair. And true,
You look so sweet in the ruins of our dream. You knew,
I only acted like I didn’t seem to care.
You look at me, as if I’m being cruel, true
You seem to fight with no one else. Now you’re,
Walking further up the road. And me,
Sinking deeper in a chair.
Friends are here, calling out a tune,
Hear them sing, what you gonna do?
There’s a dancing elephant in the room.
Leave the house, take it slow,
Hidin’ out at a friend’s music show.
Smell that smoke, play a game,
Lashing out, to hide all my shame. And me, I
Sit alone in a club. While friends, they
Wave their hands ‘Hello, why are you alone?’
Stranger’s face is coming into view,
Stranger’s hand, breathe their perfume,
We’re dancing elephants in the room.
Lover please hold my hand again,
Pull me out of this dream.
Waking up, I’m dancing in the room,
Breaking down, skin’s turning blue,
I’m the dancing elephant in the room.
