Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Halsey:

Without Me

Length: 3:21

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own
I said I’d catch you if you fall
And if they laugh, then fuck ’em all (all)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you could take advantage of me
