R&B Break Up Songs

Lyrics of Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart
The best way to heal your heart is by listening to some good R&B songs. So here is a list of R&B break up songs that relate to what you are going through and help in making you feel better.
Ain't no feeling like being free
When your mind's made up
And your hearts in the right place, yeah
Ain't no feeling like being free
When you've done all you could
But what's misunderstood
(It's all good, it's all good)
Ain't no feeling like being free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feeling like being free
Cause my mind's made up
And my heart is in the right place, yeah...
Destiny's Child, Free
