[Verse 1]
I'm tired of waiting
for our love to just fail
for we both know it's fading
it's not difficult to tell
and as much as I hate to say it
it might be too late to save it
but before this kiss is our last
there's just one thing I have to ask

[Chorus 1]
Was it worth all those years
For it to just bring us tears?
did we do it all in vain?
Was it completely hopeless?
Was it too hard to focus?
because now it has only caused pain.

[Verse 2]
I know we just wanted
the best for each other
but did we have to say those things
that only brought trouble?
We really truly had a wonderful time
with me in your arms and you in mine
but since we know it's not working out
there's one thing that we can't leave out
(repeat chorus 1)

I hope I haven't wasted
too much of your precious time
I hope you find what you're looking for
but I wish we could rewind.

Was it worth those years?
Was it worth these tears?
was it completely hopeless?
Just too hard to focus?
Was it all done in vain?
it has only caused pain
