LYRICS

Oh so, your wounds they show

I know you have never felt so alone

But hold on, head up, be strong

Oh hold on, hold on until you hear them come

Here they come, oh

Take an angel by the wings

Beg her now for anything

Beg her now for one more day

Take an angel by the wings

Time to tell her everything

Ask her for the strength to stay

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

Look up, call to the sky

Oh, look up and don't ask why, oh

Just take an angel by the wings

Beg her now for anything

Beg her now for one more day

Take an angel by the wings

Time to tell her anything

Ask her for the strength to stay

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

You can, you can do anything, anything

You can do anything

About SIA: "Sia Kate Isobelle Furler (/ˈsiːə/ SEE-ə; born 18 December 1975) is an Australian singer, songwriter, voice actress and director. She started her career as a singer in the acid jazz band Crisp in the mid-1990s in Adelaide. In 1997, when Crisp disbanded, she released her debut studio album, titled OnlySee, in Australia. She moved to London, England, and provided vocals for the British duo Zero 7. Sia released her second studio album, Healing Is Difficult, in 2000, and her third studio album, Colour the Small One, in 2004.

Sia relocated to New York City in 2005 and toured in the United States. Her fourth and fifth studio albums, Some People Have Real Problems and We Are Born, were released in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Each was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association and attracted wider notice than her earlier albums. Uncomfortable with her growing fame, Sia took a hiatus from performing, during which she focused on songwriting for other artists, producing successful collaborations "Titanium" (with David Guetta), "Diamonds" (with Rihanna) and "Wild Ones" (with Flo Rida).

In 2014, Sia broke through as a solo recording artist when her sixth studio album, 1000 Forms of Fear, debuted at No 1 in the U.S. Billboard 200 and generated the top-ten single "Chandelier" and a trilogy of music videos co-directed by Sia and starring child dancer Maddie Ziegler. Since then, Sia has usually worn a wig that obscures her face to protect her privacy.[1] Her seventh studio album, This Is Acting (2016), spawned her first Billboard Hot 100 number one single, "Cheap Thrills". The same year, Sia gave her Nostalgic for the Present Tour, which incorporated dancing by Ziegler and others and other performance art elements. Her eighth studio album, Everyday Is Christmas, was released in 2017 and reissued in 2018 with three bonus tracks. In 2018, she collaborated with Labrinth and Diplo in the group LSD, and they released their self-titled debut album in April 2019.

Sia wrote and directed an upcoming feature film, titled Music. Among the accolades received by Sia are nearly a dozen ARIA Awards, 9 Grammy Award nominations and an MTV Video Music Award.[2]

1975–1997: Early life and career beginnings

Her father, Phil Colson, is a musician, and her mother, Loene Furler, is an art lecturer.[3] Sia is the niece of actor-singer Kevin Colson.[4] Sia said that as a child she imitated the performing style of Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Sting, whom she cites as early influences.[5] She attended Adelaide High School.[3] In the mid-1990s, Sia started a career as a singer in the local acid jazz band Crisp.[3] Sia collaborated with the band and contributed vocals to their album Word and the Deal (1996) and EP Delirium (1997).[6] In 1997 Crisp disbanded,[7] and Sia released her debut studio album, OnlySee, on Flavoured Records, in Australia, on 23 December.[8] The album sold about 1,200 copies.[9][10] Unlike her later albums, OnlySee was marketed under her full name, "Sia Furler".
