"Was It Worth It" as written by Keyshia M. Cole, Bryan Michael Paul Cox, Adonis Shropshire and Kendrick Ashley Jevon Dean....
Well I don't know why I was dreaming about you
But I do know that I was dancing without you
Then you smiled, and I was lost
You fall in love, why count the cost?

All I gave to you
All you made me do
I react when I hear people ask

Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth living for
Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth giving more

If I'd had my way this would have happened much sooner
But until that day it was only a rumor
All at once you changed my life
And led me in to paradise

Where I had to do
What I wanted to
I react when I hear people ask

Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth living for
Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth giving more

I reserve the right to live
My life this way, and I don't give
A damn when I hear people say
I'll pay the price that others pay

'Cause it's worth it
Yes it's worth living for
'Cause it's worth it
Yes it's worth living for

All I gave to you
All you made me do
I react when I hear people ask

Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth living for
Was it worth it?
Yes it's worth giving more

And I reserve (what?)
The right to live (where?)
My life this way (how?)
I couldn't give
A damn when I (what?)
Hear people say (who?)
I'll pay the price
That others pay

'Cause it's worth it
Yes it's worth living for
'Cause it's worth it
Yes it's worth giving more
And it's worth it

I don't know why
I never thought I'd fall in love
I don't know why
I don't know why
I never thought I'd fall in love
I don't know why
I don't know why

    General CommentAbout loving someone even if other people don't understand why you love them. Telling people that it's worth all the sacrifices that come with it because you love this person.

    General CommentI feel this song is about "forbidden love" so to speak and the backlash you have to face for it from the society which presents this question - "Was it worth it?". The author made the decision to come out in open about it (and confirm the rumour) and shares how liberating that was, and hence - "And led me in to paradise".."I wish it would have happened much sooner".

    Towards the end the disclosure that he never thought he would fall in love is interesting. Whether it was the fear or whether he misjudged his own ability to provide love.
