"The Bully" as written by James Dearness Hogarth, Sia Kate I. Furler and Beck Hansen....
How you been feeling
It's not about marbles snakes or glue
How you been healing
Now that we cannot win or lose
So how you been keeping
It doesn't matter whose dad's richest now
How you been sleeping
From the top bunks further to fall down

You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me

What you been doing
Still make the world a better place
Never stopped ruing
Making those tears fall down your face
Making you suffer
Wondering how you got your scars
And only in hindsight
I wish I had taken you in my arms

Taken you in my arms
Taken you in my arms
Taken you in my arms
Taken you in my arms

You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me

You turned that around on me (forgiving the bully)
You turned that around on me
You turned that around on me (forgiving the bully)

    General CommentI read an interview with Sia in which she said that she used to bully a girl when she was younger, and she wrote this song because she felt bad about it. It was co-written with Beck which is kinda cool.
