If I could take it all away, I would
Take that killer from your veins, I would
If I could find a way to pay, I would give anything
To keep you here

How can we come to terms with fate
When pain is too hard to articulate
All I know is that I always want
To have you near

So I'll pretend that it's not there
Look away, avert my stare
Turn my back on
The elephant in the room
The elephant in the room

Bring back the day when life was so easy
Bring back the day before it all fell apart
Make me okay with the fact that you're leaving
Cause I just hold on
I just hold on

So I'll pretend that it's not there
Look away, avert my stare
Turn my back on
The elephant in the room
The elephant in the room

And maybe if I stay strong
He'll give up and move along
And leave us alone
The elephant in the room

If I could take it all away I would
Make forever here today, I would
If I could find a way to pay I would give anything
To keep you here

Very haunting. The tune is reminiscent of middle age folk but with modern lauds of no barriers.

Great voice! Very stark and haunting vibe.
