Rachael Yamagata - Elephants

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOBwWnoNI6U&ob=av2e] Husky vocals, ironic lyrics. This song is pretty good if you think about it. Well, I think it just fits the context right now.

"If the elephants have past lives yet are destined to always remember It's no wonder how they scream Like you and I they must have some temper

And I am dreaming of them on the plains Dirtying up their beds Watching for some sign of rain to cool their hot heads

And how dare that you send me that card when I'm doing all that I can do You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you

If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by All my instincts have failed me for once I must have somehow slept the whole night

And I am dreaming of them with their kill Tearing it all apart Blood dripping from their lips and teeth sinking into heart

And how dare that you say you'll call When you know I need some peace of mind If you have to take sides with the animals Won't you do it with one who is kind

And if the hawks in the trees need the dead If you're living you don't stand a chance For a time though you share the same bed There are only two ends to this dance

You can flee with your wounds just in time or lie there as he feeds Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed

So for those of you falling in love keep it kind Keep it good Keep it right Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night"
