about

What Is It Worth
Emilie Parma / Beth Nielson Chapman

lyrics

I used to cry
But nobody answered
My first months of life
From the day of my birth
I gave up the fight
Of waiting and wondering
Why should I try
What is it worth

They walked in and smiled
Walked right up and chose me
A beautiful child
Blue eyes and blonde hair
They took me home
We flew over the ocean
To live in their world
Where somebody cared

Every child needs
A mother and father
Every child
Needs to know that they’re loved
How they tried
They did all that they could do
But even their best wasn’t enough

The years dragged on by
And each time I lost someone
No tears filled my eyes
They were locked in my rage
Still in denial of my need to need someone
I tried to push through
But fell over the edge

I saw the light
I thought it was heaven
I’d opened my eyes
And crashed back to earth
Cause I wouldn’t stop
Til I hit rock bottom
Why should I try
What is it worth

Every child needs
A mother and father
Every child
Needs to know that they’re loved
Oh how they tried
They did all that they could do
But even their best wasn’t enough

I used to cry
But nobody answered
My first months of life
From the day of my birth
I gave up the fight
Of waiting and wondering
Why should I try
What is it worth

Why should I try
What am I worth
