Lime Cordiale – Elephant In The Room


Can’t say I feel too comfortable
When asked to smile for your friends
I spent almost an hour or two
Waiting in the freezing cold for you
Where are all your please and thanks
When you finally arrive
And then you forget to introduce
I end up st-st-stumbling through

I plod along
Pretending that
Nothing’s wrong

Sooner or later
I’ll stop playing favourites
You’re giving signals
And it seems so simple
But what can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?
What can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?

Can be your crying shoulder
When you’re lost and alone
But it’s not just me and you
Watching from your ivory tower view
Not sure I can go on like this
When I’m dragged down by the ear
Now you’ve turned on love and that’s bizarre
But at least I know who my real friends are

I plod along
Pretending that
Nothing’s wrong

Sooner or later
I’ll stop playing favourites
You’re giving signals
And it seems so simple
But what can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?
What can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?

Moping around
Stuck to the ground
Can you stop bringing everyone else down
Never forgive I gave my best
But an elephant never forgets

Moping around
Stuck to the ground
Can you stop bringing everyone else down
Never forgive I gave my best

(Sooner or later)
(I’ll stop playing favourites)

Sooner or later
I’ll stop playing favourites
You’re giving signals
And it seems so simple
But what can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?
What can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?
While an elephant sits in the room?

What can you do?
Set an alarm
You twist the truth
Set an alarm
I’ll be lonely but I’ll be alright

What can you do?
Set an alarm
You twist the truth
Set an alarm
I’ll be lonely but I’ll be alright

What can you do?
