(cover of "Dying in Africa" by Nicholas Makelberge)

Someone I loved turned me down
I didn't feel my head touch the ground.

Someone I loved said goodbye
I never knew someone could make me cry
like this.

And I, I won't get over you
even if they're dying in Africa.
And I, I can't get over you
even if they're crying in Africa.

And everything that you say,
It will be held against you now.
And everything that I did,
Yes, it depended on you.
It did.

Love feels so sweet when you're rejected,
even if they're dying in Africa.
And I, I can't get over you
even if they're crying in Africa.

Someone I loved turned me down
Roll with the punches
and come back down.

Love feels so sweet when you're rejected,
even if they're dying in Africa.
And I, I can't get over you
even if they're crying in Africa,
dying in Africa.

I never knew someone could make me cry
like this.

    General CommentThis such a beautiful song.
    There isn't really anything to interpret.
    Just how much love means to you,
    especially when you can't have what you want,
    in a world full of arguably much more important things.

    Love this version and the original,
    but would have never heard it if it weren't for Sally!
