Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from George Ezra:


Length: 3:20

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

My house in Budapest, my
My hidden treasure chest
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo
I’d leave it all
My acres of a land
I have achieved
It may be hard for you to
Stop and believe
But for you
I’d leave it all
Oh, for you
I’d leave it all
Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
And, baby, if you hold me
Then all of this will go away
