Lyrics

Follow Me

Written By: Distal

There’s an empty space
Where my heart used to be
Back and forth changing on me
Just make up your mind (make up your mind)

Where will you go to find it?
Follow me here
And if the whole world should know
Let them say what they say (say what they say)

Feel the pain; don’t stop now
This is beginning to breakout

Come and find who we are (who we are)

Where will you go to find it?
Follow me here
And if the whole world should know
Let them say what they say (say what they say)
