Sia’s Elastic Heart

I’ve been listening to Sia’s piano recording of Elastic Heart a lot lately. I love this version because it really showcases the raw power of her voice and the emotions she pours into this song. 

It’s a break up song, but it reminds me a lot of how I feel about the submission process. Most of the time the publications I submit to don’t even respond back, and the perpetual waiting for that response can feel worse than an actual rejection.

But I keep pushing forward, hoping that if I keep trying with thick skin and an elastic heart, I can find the right place for my work.

Well I’ve got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I’m like a rubber band until you pull too hard
But I may snap when I move close
But you won’t see me fall apart
‘Cause I’ve got an elastic heart

    Another I’d recommend because it also gives me goosebumps is the Superfruit version of Katy Perry’s “Rise”. I heard this version before the original and I can’t even listen to the original. It just doesn’t compare

  2. I always love Bri Heart’s covers of various songs, especially her versions of Photograph by Ed Sheeran and All of Me by John Legend.

    Never have been a huge fan of Sia, but I loved hearing this version! Thank you for sharing.
