When I'm tired When I'm at my second-last best Will you hold me Even when I've picked a fight? When I've done My personal worst I tried and tried but set My personal worst If everyone on the bus Is talking shop When I escape Could you please pick me up? When the sight of one more person Fills me up with bile Can you help me spit it out, Spit it out? When I'm at My personal worst I tried and tried but set My personal worst But in return, I'll see To your every need Let us savour The quiet nights inside When you're at Your personal worst You tried and tried but set Your personal worst Can we switch off our phones and dim the lights?

Late nights on travel sites Calculating how we'll meet again For those first few seconds in your arms I strain my eyes and stretch my paycheque Was it worth it? Was it worth it? Was it worth it? I don't know. Early mornings at airports Bereft in line, wanting to vomit To empty the emptiness inside Where is home? Where is home now? Was it worth it? Was it worth it? Was it worth it? I don't know. Was it worth it? Was it worth it? Was it worth it? It was worth everything.
