"Worthless"

Music and Lyrics by Rachael Yamagata

From the album TIGHTROPE WALKER (Sony Korea Edition)

 

YOU DON’T SEE WHAT I SEE

IT’S CLEAR TO ME NOW

CATCHING MY BREATH FROM WHAT YOU JUST SAID

HELD DEEP INSIDE

IT ISN’T WORTHLESS

NO WASTE OF TIME

YOU MAY FEEL HELPLESS I’LL MAKE MY MISTAKES

BUT WHETHER THEY’RE RIGHT

THE CHOICE IS STILL MINE

I’LL TRY TO BE GENTLE 

DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S BREAKING MY HEART

BUT TIME MOVES TOO FAST 

IF WE HOLD OURSELVES HOSTAGE

RELIVING OUR PAST WILL BREAK US APART

IT’S GONNA BE HARD IT’S GONNA BE HARD THIS TIME

 

YOU’RE STEPPING BACK AND I’M STEPPING OUT

I KNOW THERE’S HARDSHIP THAT I’LL NEVER KNOW ABOUT

BUT I, I’M FINDING MY WAY AND I STILL NEED YOU AROUND

I HEAR WHAT YOU SAY THOUGH I’M STANDING MY GROUND

 

IT ISN’T WORTHLESS

NO WASTE OF TIME

YOU MAY FEEL HELPLESS I’LL MAKE MY MISTAKES

BUT WHETHER THEY’RE RIGHT THE CHOICE IS STILL MINE

AND IF I’VE BEEN CHANGING DON’T YOU KNOW

TOO MUCH FOR YOU

THEN LET ME BE FALLEN OH LET ME BE LOST

BUT LET ME FREE IF WE CAN’T BREAK THROUGH

IT’S GONNA BE HARD

IT’S GONNA BE HARD THIS TIME

IT’S GONNA BE HARD THIS TIME

IT’S GONNA BE HARD THIS TIME

 

IT ISN’T WORTHLESS

NO WASTE OF TIME

YOU MAY FEEL HELPLESS I’LL MAKE MY MISTAKES

BUT WHETHER THEY’RE RIGHT THE CHOICE IS STILL MINE

AND IF I’VE BEEN CHANGING DON’T YOU KNOW

IT’S BREAKING MY HEART

BUT TIME MOVES TOO FAST IF WE HOLD OURSELVES HOSTAGE

RELIVING OUR PAST WILL BREAK US APART

AND IF THIS IS OVER DON’T YOU KNOW

AND NOTHING’S THE SAME

I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU MEANT IT WITH LOVE

BUT SOME LOVE IS FIRE AND IT’S TOO HARD TO TAKE
