"Elastic Love" as written by Mathangi Arulpragasam, Christina Aguilera, John Graham Hill and David James Andrew Taylor....
A rubber band is what I call your love for me
'Cause it comes and goes and pins me like a trampoline
But all this back and forth is freaky, it's confusing me
Like a pencil trying to write and you're erasing me

If I was a ruler I'd set you straight
But your love is like a sharpener, it really grates
'Cause once I'm trying to bounce, you pull me back
And when I try to come to you, you give me slack

Your love is pulling like a rubber band
Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love
Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

A rubber band was an analogy
You can even say it's a metaphor
The tension between you and me
I ain't gonna feel it if you let it go

I can take a little bit and make it more
A little bit of hate can make it war
But a lot of love ain't enough
And so, I don't really know how we find the cure

Your love is pulling like a rubber band
Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love
Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love

Paper clips, they couldn't even hold us together
Paper clips, they couldn't even hold us together
Paper clips, they couldn't even hold us together

If we were gaffer tape maybe we could spend the summer
You could say your piece, you could post it on a paper
When your love hits, it sticks me like a stapler

Your love is pulling like a rubber band
Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love
Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love

Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love
Elastic love, everlastic love
Ever lusting love, such a spastic love

    General CommentFavorite song off the album. I thought Bionic was going to be a dud (NMT is a horrible first single) but all of the other songs are pretty good, and this one is my favorite. M.I.A. obviously wrote it and you can tell this is the song she worked with Christina on.

    General Commentconsidering that's M.I.A singing the verses, yes it's easy to say it's the song she worked on with Christina.

    General Commentthis is my favorite track on the album. i thought M.I.A. was singing on the track at first, too, but she's not. it's all christina. i think i read somewhere that M.I.A. co-wrote and did vocal instructing or something along those lines, but i'm not sure. either way it's awesome.
