Elastic Heart Lyrics

And another one bites the dust
But why can I not conquer love?
And I might've got to be with one
Why not fight this war without weapons?
And I want it and I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
And let's be clear, I trust no one

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

Well I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard
But I may snap when I move close
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, I won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I walked through fire to save my life
And I want it, I want my life so bad
And 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 (You did not break me, no, no)
I'm still fighting for peace

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

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

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

11 Thoughts & Meanings

An elastic band (or rubber band if youl will) can expand > grow And likewise an elastic band can contract - that's what they do. So the "I" of the song probably feels both hate and love for this other person. In the song she compares herself to a rubber band, when you pull to hard, the rubber band will snap and so will she. Snap meaning several tihings - breaking, breaking down, up and into two. But she has got thick skin - her rubber band is strong. It bounces back. This sounds like an unhealthy on/off relationship. The rubber band expands and contracts (just like a beating heart) in what sounds like an ongoing and neverending cycle . The rubber band reminds me somewhat of a boomerang in this song - it always return. She is possibly not likely to break the cycle. - Because you cannot conquer love.

I personally think the song is about a bad or abusive relationship. She loves the person she keeps going back to them and forgiving them until she reaches her limit, she snaps. She refuses to let that person get to her and break her anymore.

This song can be of more than one interpretation. Of course, this song gives the impression of a couple breaking up. Her skin is thick and she has an elastic heart, her partner can never break her. This love is ending, but she will still fight for herself and for her peace. She is becoming fed up with him, and his red flags (bad signs) makes her not trust him as well as anyone else. To a point, this song gives another impression as inner strength for ones more deeper and personal reasons that doesn't directly need to mean breakups or relationships. It can be gaining inner strength from someone in whichever part of life who swallowed her whole, and left her feeling lost and hopeless; but by having thick skin and an elastic heart, she won't be down too long, and will come back up fighting for herself and inner peace.

The moral of the story here is, even thought your heart may be stretched too far, squeezed too tight or even stabbed too many times, it will always return to its perfect, beautiful shape because you’ve got an elastic heart.

Everyone has a limit. Once you go beyond the limit then "Another one bites the dust". Here the characteristics of elasticity under stressful conditions is used to describe her own behavior in a bad relationship.

Refusing to change who she really is. She is a person who wants to fall in love and be loved. So there is an emotional battle inside that must end in order to find peace. Like an elastic, she returns to her true self. A hopeless romantic.

That's the last heartbreak before all trust is gone (Or so she tells herself)

Red flags symbolize warnings of danger. How many of us here wanted a relationship so bad that even if you knew it’s not going to last and that you’re just going to get hurt in the end, you still want it anyway? But it just didn’t work no matter how many mountains you’ve climbed and oceans crossed.

The song opens with a few words that sets the tone for many. This phrase means to break, to fail or to give out. In other words, another relationship has failed or didn’t work out. It sounds like this is a reoccurring situation.

It's an overall clever concept, while she's had too much of bad experiences in the love-life field, thus she's feeling like no one can harm her like that anymore, voila! Here comes he, who acted like a threat to her well-shielded soul, and a huge hint that he actually did make a damage...
