I'm sorry
If this hurts you
But I tried to keep what we had once I was wrong
It wasn't keeping me awake
You didn't listen (You didn't listen)
You didn't hear me (You didn't hear me)

When I said I want more
I got no more
You were'nt stealing me away
Oh

[Chorus]
It's not enough, it's not enough to give me
What it is I want
It's not enough, it's not enough to get me
Everything I need
And I, I wish it was
I think it's time
To give this up

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh

All the memories
That we're losing
All the time that I spent with you everyday
I think it's running down the drain

I'm feeling (feeling)
That we're fading
Don't make this as hard as you think you'd be
It's a lot easier than it seems
Yeah

[Chorus]
It's not enough, it's not enough to give me
What it is I want
It's not enough, it's not enough to get me
Everything I need
And I, I wish it was
I think it's time
To give this up

And I can feel it falling down
Slowly, slowly
I can see you're starting to drown
Can't stop it now

I can see ya burning out
So show me, show me
How are ya gonna turn it around because...

[Chorus]
It's not enough, it's not enough to give me
What it is I want
It's not enough, it's not enough to get me
Everything I need
And I, I wish it was
I think it's time
To give this up

It's not enough, it's not enough to get me
What it is I want
It's not enough, it's not enough to get me
Everything I need
And I, I wish it was
I think it's time
To give this up


It's not enough, it's not enough
(To get me)
It's not enough, it's not enough
(What it is I want)
It's not enough, it's not enough
(To get me)

    This song really seems to show how hard it is to lose someone. whether it by a boyfriend/girlfriend, a friend, family, etc. It hurts and it's showing it's time to give them up but you will always have memories with them... it shows that sometimes people change and you can't change them back it's up to them.
