Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Dean Lewis:

Be Alright

Length: 3:16

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

I look up from the ground to see your sad and teary eyes you look away from me
And I see there’s something you’re trying to hide
And I reach for your hand but it’s cold, you pull away again
And I wonder what’s on your mind
And then you say to me you made a dumb mistake
You start to tremble and your voice begins to break
You say the cigarettes on the counter weren’t your friend’s they were my mate’s
And I feel the color draining from my face
And my friend said
I know you love her, but it’s over, mate
It doesn’t matter, put the phone away
It’s never easy to walk away, let her go
It’ll be alright
So I still look back at all the messages you’d sent
And I know it wasn’t right, but it was fucking with my head
And everything deleted like the past, yeah, it was gone
And when I touched your face, I could tell you’re moving on
