Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from The Neighbourhood:

Daddy Issues

Length: 4:20

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Take you like a drug
I taste you on my tongue
You ask me what I’m thinking about
I tell you that I’m thinking about
Whatever you’re thinking about
Tell me something that I’ll forget
And you might have to tell me again
It’s crazy what you’ll do for a friend
Go ahead and cry, little girl
Nobody does it like you do
I know how much it matters to you
I know that you got daddy issues
And if you were my little girl
I’d do whatever I could do
I’d run away and hide with you
I love that she’s got daddy issues, and I do too
