about

“The harshness of life still weighs on our societies and sinks many young people into a dead end,” says the band in a unified statement. “’Worry’ is a positive energy that Songhoy Blues want to be a ray of hope for humanity. ‘Worry’ is about not stopping fighting because at the very end you will find the light.”

lyrics

[CHORUS]
Don’t worry
You’re gonna be happy
Keep working today
That smile will come one day
Don’t worry
You’re gonna be happy
Keep fighting today
That smile will come one day

[VERSE]
Nothing’s come for free
When you get it free – you will lose it freely
So you better know
Work hard is the best way
Nothing’s come for free
When you get it free – you will lose it freely
So you better know
Work hard is the best way
Let your hope come from fight
And go through your darkness
You’ll find your light

-CHORUS-

Keep it
Keep your self control

Keep it
Keep your eyes open

Keep it
Keep your self control

I said Keep it
Keep your eyes open

This got a lesson
You better hear it

This got a lesson
You have to listen!

That smile will come [one day]
That smile will come [one day]

There is a long way to go
There is a long journey
There is a long way to go
There is a long journey

This life is Ups and Downs
There is a long journey
There is a long journey

[Keep fighting today]
