DON'T BACK DOWN

Home demo


Well...
I know you're just running scared, I know you're scared baby
The times got ??? just got ??? down somewhere
If you need a helping hand baby, it might be somewhere I ???
You need a helping hand ??? just stand up, stand up, shout out

Don't back down, don't back down
Don't back down, don't back down
Don't back down, don't back down
Don't back down, don't back down baby

Oh my love [recording cut]
