A laundry list a mile long, I've got so much to do
No, I don't see that elephant standing in the room

And I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
But I'm sick of feeling lovesick over you

You're gonna feel a little sting
A little like a prick
A heart without an arrow in it
Gonna make you sick

So I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
But I'm sick of feeling lovesick over you

You say you love me
You'll never leave me standing all alone
Been 14 days and 50 drinks
I'm staring at the phone
What do you know, what do you know

And I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
They raised my rent, I lost my job
It's anything but you

You said you'd love me
You'd never leave me standing all alone
Where did you go?

'Cause I don’t know
No, I don't know

    General CommentThis such a beautiul song!
    I wonder why no one has left a comment here.. My interpretation goes like

    A laundry list a mile long, I've got so much to do
    No, I don't see that elephant standing in the room
    - she has so much to do but she cant get her mind of him to do it..
    I dunno what the elephant line means

    And I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
    But I'm sick of feeling lovesick over you
    - This is really simple.. she is feeling so bad over him that she can't get out of bed and can't do anything and her mind isn't in one place .. so everyone is asking her what happened? and her answer is that she has got the flu.. which isn't tru but it describes her condition and saves her from giving more answers

    You're gonna feel a little sting
    A little like a prick
    A heart without an arrow in it
    Gonna make you sick
    - She talks about her love leaving her..
    Generally when we talk about love, we talk about how cupid pierces our hearts with his arrow, so here she is talking about removing that arrow from your heart and the pain it causes..

    The rest of the song is very easy to dicpher..s helps
    hope thi
