Was It Worth It
by Lecrae, Derek Minor, Crystal Nicole

Album: Church Clothes, Vol. 2
by Lecrae, Derek Minor, Crystal Nicole


[Derek Minor]
On birthdays and Christmas
I used to have you on my wishlist
Held my son the first time
Looked him in his eye
And thought to myself
What kind of fool would ever miss this

I ain't ask for you to sleep with mom and make me
Plus I'm your blood
Why would you leave
What was so important
They told you smash broads
Roll up the weed
I guess that buzz got you high enough to float over me

I hope that every dollar that you made
Every girl that you slave
When you close your eyes at night
I hope you say it's all worth it
Every graduation, birthday
Game that you missed
I hope what you got instead
Make you feel it's all worth it

Being a
Father's expensive
And it cost you may ignore
Just know, man
Your grandson is paying for it
Can't ask myself what would dad do in hard times
Cause that that man he'll be writing one of these rhymes

[Crystal Nicole]
All these hearts that you broke
All these lies that you told
All this pain that you own
Years all alone
Nights away from home
Tell me
I hope it was worth it
Was it worth it
Tell me, was worth it
Tell me, was it really worth it

[Lecrae]
Listen, a lot of rap dudes never had a daddy
That's why we want approval from Nas
Like he family
But, it ain't just Jermaine
It's Dre to the game
To the Birdman
Saying that he's the father of Wayne, man

What happened to us
Better yet what didn't happen
No happy family
Cause daddy left me deep in this valley, of the Shadow of Death
I'm felling the breath of repetitiveness on my neck
Ate me alive
While daddy was getting high

Trying to chase after something that I'm certain he'll never find
When the whole time
He could have had my young mind
Somewhere along the line
I guess he spent up all his time
Sent me this birthday card out of the blind
When I was nine

Inherited a bunch of of pain and some empty memories
Wishing that he picked me up from elementary
I wish he could have seen me on my graduation
Taught me he to raise the son
And told me congratulations
