Lyrics

Don't Worry

Written By: Gypsyfly

Don't Worry

How do you fill an empty heart

it's a question that tears me apart

things won't get better now

no matter what they say I can not wait

to make my break from empty days

And I'm crying out for love

but this time it's not enough

and my heart is breaking up

When you remember me

remember me how I used to be

somethings are meant to be

so don't worry

don't worry

but now is my time

xoxo and say goodbye

your my best memory and you'll always stay apart of me

somethings were meant to be so don't worry

And I'm crying out for love

but this time it's not enough

and my heart is breaking up

When you remember me

remember me how I used to be

somethings are meant to be

so don't worry

don't worry

When you remember me

remember me how I used to be

somethings are meant to be

so don't worry

don't worry

about me
