As humans, we’re complicated creatures. We’re full of all kinds of things; emotions, thoughts, plans, dreams, joy, pain, and the list would go on for quite a while if we attempted to make one.
 

This work is a reflection of what some of us may experience when we’re in the beginning stages of a relationship. It’s a point you realize the person you are in those beginning stages with is holding onto some past trauma.
 

As the person experiencing that past trauma, we can go through a myriad of emotions and thoughts, one of those that we deal with is Worth.
 

These lyrics are in response to someone feeling they may not be worth it.

Worth It


Verse 1:
 

There’s a lot of reasons I could write a song
but tonight it’s as simple as it is true
I just want you to know everything’s gonna be alright.
This ain’t a race we have to win
if what you need is grace, patience and time
you’re worth that and a hell of a lot more
so that’s easy for me to give.

Now we’re here in that place
where I know your past and you know mine
it doesn’t mean we know what the future holds
even if I know what I’d like.
There is one thing I can promise
I’ll always be by your side.

Chorus:

 

So, take it slow girl
take your time.
I’m not gonna run or try to hide
cause in case you didn’t know it
you’re worth the risk
you’re worth the fight

 

Verse 2:

Now there isn’t much in this life that scares me
but I remembered what that was like the first time I saw you
cause I knew you were something I didn’t want to lose.
And I may not know what I’m doing
it’s been a while since I felt something like this
I know I want to thank you for all you’ve given me
and I need you to know your worth every chance there is to take.

So if you ever wonder where to go
when the shadows are calling
and you don’t know which way to turn
remember I’m right here waiting.
I’ll pick up your cause, I’ll take on your fight.
You don’t have to do this alone
but even if there’s times you want to
always know I’ll never be far behind.

 

Chorus:

So, take it slow girl
take your time.
I’m not gonna run or try to hide
cause in case you didn’t know it
you’re worth the risk
you’re worth the fight


Bridge:

I know a part of you is hurting
Even though I can’t I wish I could take away that pain
but I know what we have is special
and come hell or high water
I need you to know I’m here
and I’ll never walk away.

And if you ever have a time you ask yourself “why me?”
remember there’s someone over here
who knows your worth taking every minute of the day
to show you why.

Chorus:

So, take it slow girl
take your time.
I’m not gonna run or try to hide
cause in case you didn’t know it
you’re worth the risk
you’re worth the fight
