Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Dua Lipa:

Don’t Start Now

Length: 3:03

Release: 2019

Opening Lyrics:

If you don’t wanna see me
Did a full 180, crazy
Thinking ’bout the way I was
Did the heartbreak change me? Maybe
But look at where I ended up
I’m all good already
So moved on, it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all, so
If you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me
