Is It Really Worth It


Alice C. Bateman 

Dedicated to my good friend Richard

Is it really worth it 
All the pain and crap we take 
Is it really worth it 
Is it really 'for our sake' 

Does it really matter 
How much work I do 
Does it really matter 
How much I care for you 

There are some days when I just don't know 
When I think I've had enough 
The days when there is too much work 
And everything seems tough 

And then a good friend comes along 
And says just the right words 
That make the whole thing worth it 
All the twists and turns and curves 

'Cause if we didn't suffer 
If everything came cheap 
Then it really would mean nothing 
When it comes the time to reap
