Manic Street Preachers Feat. Nina Persson – Your Love Alone Is Not Enough lyrics

Your love alone is not enough
Not enough, not enough
When times get tough, oh they get tough
They get tough, they get tough

Trade all your heroes in for ghosts
In for ghosts, in for ghosts
They're always the ones that love you most
Love you most, love you most

Your love alone is not enough
Not enough, not enough
It's what you felt, it's what you said
What you said, what you said

You said the sky would fall on you
Fall on you, fall on you
Through all the pain your eyes stayed blue
They stayed blue, baby blue

But your love alone won't save the world
You knew the secret of the universe
Despite it all you made it worse
It left you lonely, it left you cursed

You stole the sun straight from my heart
From my heart, from my heart
With no excuses just fell apart
Fell apart, fell apart

No, you won't make a mess of me
Mess of me, mess of me
For you're as blind as a man can be
Man can be, man can be

I could have seen for miles and miles
I could have made you feel alive
I could have placed us in exile
I could have written all your lines
I could have shown you how to cry
(I could have shown you)

Your love alone is not enough
Your love alone is not enough

I could have shown you
I showed you how to cry
Your love alone is not enough
Your love alone
