Tell me was it worth it?
(Worth it all)
Tell me was it worth it?
(Worth it all)
Tell me was it worth it all?
Tell me was it worth it?
(Worth it all)
Tell me was it worth it?
Tell me was it worth it all?
(Worth it all)
Tell me was it worth it?
(Worth it all)

[Verse 1:]
Before you were no good.
You used to be so good.
And then you changed and flipped on me.
So tell me what's the reason all this time you've been preaching, acting like you know
everything.
Look into my eyes.... and tell me what you see.
Was what you got worth losing me?
Now all your lies has caught up wit your game.
It's a different picture, but in the same old frame.
Tell me was it...

[Chorus:]
Tell me was it worth it, now that it's said and done?
Oh, did you find what you were looking for?
Tell me was it worth it, oh boy that's all I want.
Is just tell me the truth and nothing more.
Don't be confused and think that I wanna be back in your arms because I closed that door.
Tell me was it worth it, for you to make that change?
And play that game wit me.

[Verse 2:]
I gave all I could give you changed it all up for you.
But you didn't sacrifice for me.
So is it for the moment?
Are you really on it?
Either way you ain't thinkin bout me.
Look into my eyes.
And tell me do you see... can you see the pain that you caused on me?
It's not the same.
We'll never be that way again.
Cuz you can't take back those tears.
Please tell me...

[Chorus:]
Tell me was it worth it, now that it's said and done? (Oh, Oh)
Oh, did you find what you were looking for? (Hey)
Tell me was it worth it, oh boy that's all I want. (Was it worth it, that's all I want from you)
Is just tell me the truth and nothing more. (Aye)
Don't be confused and think that I wanna be back in your arms because I closed that door.
(So don't be confused at all, I closed that door)
Tell me was it worth it, for you to make that change? (Tell me was it worth it, ohh)
And play that game wit me. (Play that game wit me)

[Bridge:]
Tell me was it worth it?
Worth it.
Was it worth it?
Worth it all.
Tell me was it worth it?
Worth it.
Was it worth it?
Worth it all.

[Chorus:]
Tell me was it worth it, now that it's said and done? (The life we built hey, said and done)
Oh, did you find what you were looking for?
Tell me was it worth it, oh boy that's all I want. (Baby was it worth it aye)
Is just tell me the truth and nothing more.
Don't be confused and think that I wanna be back in your arms because I closed that door.
(Don't be confused, no no, I don't want you baby no, I don't want you baby no no)
Tell me was it worth it, for you to make that change?
And play that game wit me. (And play this game wit me)

[Chorus:]
Tell me was it worth it, now that it's said and done? (Oh, oh, oh)
Oh, did you find what you were looking for? (Oh)
Tell me was it worth it, oh boy that's all I want. (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is just tell me the truth and nothing more.

    my meaning to this song is, he treated her wrong and now it done caught up with him but all she wanted to know was, was it worth it all was it worth losing her for good? but fellas i got to tell you something if you got a good girl on your hand dont treat her wrong, hold on to her tight because once she's gone she's gone FOR GOOD and you wont be able to get her back and ladies that's the same thing with yall if you got a good man treat him right dont try to be a player because it will catch up with you no matter where youre trying to hide aint no running from it.
