PINK ELEPHANTS Lyrics
by Summer

I will not forget
Thrown babies at 4am
And I will not forget
How many times you broke that paddle on him

Or a junked up house from bottom to top
With little pathways for us to walk
And I cannot forget the piano
And the handcuffs

And it’s alright
It’s okay
It don’t matter that much now anyway
It’s alright and it’s okay
It don’t matter that much
Anyway

It must have been hard
To grow up with a mother like yours
Please don’t think
I haven’t thought of that before
And I feel for you
I mean, I really do
But I feel for me too

But it’s alright
It’s okay
It don’t matter that much now anyway
It’s alright and it’s okay
It don’t matter that much
Anyway


I got over it
And I don’t know if you
Need to get over it too
But if you do
This is me
Forgiving you

And it’s alright
It’s okay
It don’t matter that much now anyway
It’s alright and it’s okay
It don’t matter that much
Anyway

That faded book of my childhood
Has long been closed
From now on, I will not bring it up
I will not discuss
What only
Pink elephants know

And it’s alright
It’s okay
It don’t matter that much now anyway
It’s alright and it’s okay
It don’t matter that much
Anyway
