  • Lyrics
  • Despite the claims of The Four Seasons and Fergie, the toughest girl does break down once in a while.

    I don't care if I don't look beauty
    Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking


    The soaring ballad finds Sia singing about a hard-bitten girl who lives alone. Having bottled up her emotions, she finally breaks down over the lack of a text message from the man she loves.
  • Sia penned the song with English singer-songwriter Chris Braide. The pair previously collaborated on Britney Spears' single, "Perfume " and David Guetta's hit tune "She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)."
  • Directed by Sia with Daniel Askill, the video is the Australian singer-songwriter's third collaboration with Maddie Ziegler. Filmed in front of a stark black backdrop, the preteen dancer and actress performs straight to camera with only her shoulders upwards in view for the majority of the clip. Ziegler previously appeared in Sia's videos for "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart."
