The rhythm is always heavy with heart-wrenching intensity. When she fights with herself, you can hear the struggle in every word.

1. Breathe Me

“Be my friend, hold me

Wrap me up, unfold me

I am small, I'm needy

Warm me up and breathe me”

2. Soon We’ll Be Found

“Shut your eyes, there are no lies

In this world we call sleep

Let's desert this day of hurt

Tomorrow we'll be free”

3. My Love

“My love, leave yourself behind

Beat inside me, leave you blind

My love, look what you can do

I am mending, I'll be with you”

4. Alive

“I was born in a thunderstorm

I grew up overnight

I played alone

I played on my own

I survived”

5. Destiny

“When I'm weak, I draw strength from you

And when you're lost I know how to change your mood

And when I'm down you breathe life over me

Even though we're miles apart we are each other's destiny”

6. Chandelier

“One, two, three, one, two, three, drink

One, two, three, one, two, three, drink

One, two, three, one, two, three, drink

Throw ‘em back, till I lose count”

7. I’m In Here

“I'm breaking down

I am fearing it all

Stuck inside these walls

Tell me there is hope for me

Is anybody out there listening?”

8. Elastic Heart

“I wanted it, I wanted it bad

But there were so many red flags

Now another one bites the dust

Yeah, let's be clear, I'll trust no one”

9. Fire Meet Gasoline

“It's dangerous to fall in love

But I want to burn with you tonight

Hurt me, there's two of us

Bristling with desire

The pleasure's pain and fire”

10. Eye Of The Needle

“You're locked inside my heart

And your melody's an art

And I won't let the terror in

I'm stealing time

Through the eye of the needle”

11. I Go To Sleep

“When morning comes again

I have the loneliness you left me

Each day drags by

Until finally my time descends on me

I go to sleep”

12. Big Girls Cry

“I may cry, ruining my makeup

Wash away all the things you've taken

And I don't care if I don't look pretty

Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking”

13. Electric Bird

“Got to set you free, you were blinded by deceit

You can't fly away electric bird

So now this rooms all staged

While you're stuck there in that cage”

14. We Can Hurt Together

“So hurt with me

I'll hurt with you

Baby you know we can hurt together

I've been where you've been

I've seen what you've seen”

15. Numb

“You made me smile today

You spoke with many voices

We travelled miles today

Shared expressions voiceless”

16. Lullaby

“Place your past into a book

Put in everything you ever took

Place your past into a book

Burn the pages, let them cook”

17. Angel By The Wings

“Take an angel by the wings

Beg her now for anything

Beg her now for one more day

Time to tell her everything”

18. Don't Bring Me Down

“Faint light of dawn

I'm listening to you breathing in and breathing out

Needing nothing, you're honey dipped

You are beautiful, floating clouds, soft world”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXfLirBwBKY

19. Bird Set Free

 "I don't care if I sing off key

I find myself in my melodies

I sing for love, I sing for me

I shout it out like a bird set free"

20. Titanium

“Cut me down

But it's you who'll have further to fall

Ghost town and haunted love

Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones”

21. Distractions

“Fancy, a fast car

A bag full of loot

I can nearly guarantee

You'll end up with the boot”

22. Butterflies

“We've shared joy and we've shared pain

We've shared guilt and we've shared shame

We've bought into the stupid games

We've freed each other and we laid claim”

23. Unstoppable

“I'm unstoppable

I'm a Porsche with no brakes

I'm invincible

Yeah, I win every single game”

Sia really can make everything sound profoundly beautiful. Listening to her is always a treat of melodic extravagance.
