Sia's Powerful "Elastic Heart" Lyrics: A Totally Necessary GIF Reaction — PHOTOS

Sia Furler's new single, "Elastic Heart," is one of the best songs on her 1000 Forms of Fear album. It's fantastic. It's wonderful. It's stupendous! It's an emotional and thrilling pop ballad about resilience and the importance of fighting for love, delivered with all of the tremendous power of Sia's soaring voice. Thanks in part to its stunning music video, which features Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler and actor Shia LaBeouf, "Elastic Heart" is already well on its way to becoming a hit. In fact, it debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart just last week! I'm so happy that Sia decided to release her solo version of the track. (A duet version with The Weeknd was included on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack near the end of 2013.)

The only thing that could possibly make "Elastic Heart" better would be a series of hilarious, adorable, and sometimes inspirational gifs to go along with the song's already powerful lyrics... right? Right. Gifs make everything better (especially when they involve people dancing... but especially when they involve people falling down). What am I waiting for? Let's do this!

1st VERSE:

And another one bites the dust

Oh why can I not conquer love?

And I might have thought that we were one

Wanted to fight this war without weapons

And I wanted it, I wanted it bad

But there were so many red flags

Now another one bites the dust

Yeah let's be clear, I'll trust no one


PRE-CHORUS:

You did not break me

I'm still fighting for peace

CHORUS:

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

I may snap and I move fast

But you won't see me fall apart


'Cause I've got an elastic heart

POST-CHORUS:

I've got an elastic heart

Yeah, I've got an elastic heart

2nd VERSE:

And I will stay up through the night

Yeah let's be clear, won't close my eyes

And I know that I can survive

I'll walk through fire to save my life

And I want it, I want my life so bad


I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust

It's hard to lose a chosen one


PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
CHORUS x 2
POST-CHORUS

Fin.
