Jo Dee Messina – Love Is Not Enough lyrics

Sometimes I have to tell myself
To keep on breathing
My heart is not believing you're gone
I try hard to remind myself
Time will do the healing
'cause right now I'm not feeling all that strong
Everything's a memory
And how they're taunting me
Just one simple thing
And I break down and cry

Why? I wanna scream it's just not fair
Pray to God I didn't care
I wanna turn back time
Turn back time and have you here with me
I wanna find someone to blame
But sometimes life gets in the way
And it doesn't care how much we love
'cause sometimes love is just not enough

Oh we took a chance
We gave it all we had and couldn't make it
It didn't work for all the times we tried
No matter how we loved it seems the odds were stuck against us
Now we have to build our seperate lives
But I'm not ready yet
Too much to forget
Oh it still feels like a part of me is dying


Sometimes love is just not
How come love is just not enough
