Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from The Kid LAROI:


Length: 2:41

Release: 2020

Opening Lyrics:

You cut out a piece of me, and now I bleed internally
Left here without you (no, no, no), without you (ooh)
And it hurts for me to think about what life could possibly be like
Without you (no, no, no), without you (no, no)
I can’t believe that you wouldn’t believe me
Fuck all of your reasons
I lost my shit, you know I didn’t mean it
Now I see it, you run and repeat it
And I can’t take it back, so in the past is where we’ll leave it, huh
So there you go, oh
Can’t make a wife out of a ho, oh
I’ll never find the words to say I’m sorry
But I’m scared to be alone
