Sia - Elastic Heart feat. Shia LaBeouf & Maddie Ziegler (Official Video)
This is the second song in a series I am doing called Song Reactions. This means that without looking at any comments or news articles on the song, I break down the meaning to interpret MY meaning. I hope you enjoy!
In this song, what I think Sia is trying to achieve is saying that she's built up walls around her, and that no one is going to tear them down now. But sometimes there are people who come in and can begin to chip away at the walls and reveal a little more of her each time. Now she wants to free herself from those walls, but she's built them so thickly she can't get away.
Sia's music is often a statement. She is revealing a little more of herself with each song. I think this is a massive statement about Sia and how she is trying to push away from everything. All of Sia's songs are beautiful, but this one raises the bar so high. Sia has struggled with depression and she says that music is an outlet for her. I agree. And for the record Sia, you've just torn down a bit more of that wall.
