Pink Elephant

Versions: #1#2
Why would I need a pink elephant?
I'm sure, I know it completely,
Objectively, from all sides,
I absolutely don't need it.
But it's going after me all the time,
And I'm already terribly bored of it.
Because I like other animals
Black and camouflaging.
 
I don't need a pink elephant for anything,
But I feel sorry to banish it.
And because we're always together
I started to get used to it.
I already worry about it,
It's with me on every step.
The pink elephant joined my life
I already can't live without it
 
Everyone has to know about this,
That's how life is arranged.
If you want to lose something - get attached.
And as soon as you start believing in Eden, luck
All will get destroyed by a stroke of bad luck.
If you want to lose something - start loving it.
 
And as soon as I started needing it,
As it became essential, necessary,
for some reason the pink elephant became
closed and unsociable.
The pink elephant doesn't long
To be with me every minute
Somehow it is suspended,
it avoids me for some reason.
 
For me this is a terrible drama -
it's not with me for a whole moment.
There a telegram is coming to me,
The elephant has found other hosts.
How will I go through this,
I will die, I will lose my mind.
How to return or how to forget
the pink elephant?
 
Everyone has to know about this,
That's how life is arranged.
If you want to lose something - get attached.
And as soon as you start believing in Eden, luck
All will get destroyed by a stroke of bad luck.
If you want to lose something - start loving it.
 
In order not to cry and not to mourn,
And to avoid many losses,
Never love anybody,
Never trust anybody.
But I don't think it will be possible for me,
Soon new spring will come,
And I will find again
some kind of elephant.
 
Everyone has to know about this,
That's how life is arranged.
If you want to lose something - get attached.
And as soon as you start believing in Eden, luck
All will get destroyed by a stroke of bad luck.
If you want to lose something - start loving it.
