Worth the Cost

They say it isn't worth the heartache,
No, it's not worth the pain.
Girl, you should break up with him,
If you only had a brain.

You've walked down this road before
And look at what it cost:
Your heart, your home, your self-worth;
Look at everything you lost.

The distance does you no favors,
The long miles keep you forever apart,
Girl, you've walked this lonesome road before,
For once, think of your heart.

Is he really worth the effort?
Is he really worth the time?

You've walked down this road before
And look at what it cost:
Your heart, your home, your self-worth,
Look at everything you lost.

Well, I know it's worth the heartache,
And I know it's worth the pain,
Because I know how it will feel
When I have him in my arms again.

True, I've walked down this road before.
It was a lonely, one-way journey;
But this time I'm taking the two-way streets,
And I know he's walking towards me.

The distance does us a favor
In the long miles keeping us apart,
Because it amplifies the feelings,
Makes us feel with our whole hearts.

He is really worth the effort,
He is really worth the time,
Because there's no better feeling in this world
Than knowing that he's mine.

And so, I'll walk this road again,
And so, I'll continue to wait.
Because for true love there is no cost,
For true love there's never
Too long to wait.
