english language using lyrics in exam

i’ve been anxious all day because for the english language paper 1 question 5 creative writing i chose to write the story, and included taylor swift lyrics while making the storyline basically the song ‘right where you left me’. it wasn’t my intention to use a lot but i feel i was just rushing so all i could basically think of were different taylor lyrics so now im terrified im going to be penalised..
i can only remember about 3 sentences being the exact lyrics, whereas all the the other ones were more embedded and just used as a reference (if that makes sense). i also did write some of my own stuff too but can someone pls tell me i’ll be okay😥😥
