  • Lyrics
  • In this song Cabrera offers his best to his former sweetheart, Ashlee Simpson. He explained: "A lot of times, when people break up, they're all pissed off at the other person. They wish the worst for them. But this song is kind of the opposite - it's like, we're not together, but God made you to shine on. You do your thing, I'll do my thing, and hopefully everybody will be doing well."
