I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
Oh the sights that I have seen  (riff A)

CHORUS

C     C/B        Am7
 I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
 I?m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
G(strum)
crashing to the grouououond

And all this talk of time
Talk is fine
And I don?t want to stay around
Why can?t we pantomime, just close our eyes
And sleep sweet dreams
Being here with wings on our feet

I?m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I?m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I?m breaking through
I?m bending spoons
I?m keeping flowers in full bloom
I?m looking for answers from the great beyond

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
Look into the stars
Look into the moon

I?m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I?m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I?m breaking through
I?m bending spoons
I?m keeping flowers in full bloom
I?m looking for answers from the great beyond
