What is it Worth?

I am the way I am

And only I can change that

You are pushing me to misery

That’s a matter of fact

I know what you’re trying to do

And it’s not going to work

If you don’t cut me a little slack

I’ll dig my heels in the dirt

 

Your friendship means the world to me

But we don’t see eye to eye

Our different personalities

Are causing sparks to fly

We both see things in different ways

It’s just the way we are

You can hurt my feelings with simple words

Causing an emotional scar

 

Now I don’t want to go on like this

I hate this mental tug of war

I’m fighting with myself and you

And I can’t take it anymore

So I try to pick my battles

Avoid the emotional land mines

What I need is support and encouragement

Not to be crying all the time

 

How are we going to fix it

Keep our friendship going strong

We’ll have to have a heart to heart

You’ll have to hear this song

We need to give each other credit

When the balance is due

And stop withdrawing only debits

Our emotional banks are overdue

 

I am good enough

I am doing alright

I am pushing myself

With all of my might

Can we sit down and talk

I need to get this all out

If I don’t my head it will explode

Without a single doubt

 

You haven’t seen this side of me

I don’t like to get mad

But when I do I blow my top

The aftermath makes me sad

If we don’t find a solution

I fear our friendship might end

Talking is a good place to start

A way to heal and to mend

 

I am good enough

I am doing alright

I am pushing myself

With all of my might

Can we sit down and talk

I need to get this all out

If I don’t my head it will explode

Without a single doubt
