How many should haves, how many should have nots
How many I wish we hads lie between us?
For two basically well intentioned people it seems to me Our failures just demean us
Is it lack of self regard?
It should not be this hard
I want to know, I want to know, I want to know
If love is not enough then what's enough? I am listening
If love is not enough what keeps the moon bright,
What keeps the ocean glistening?
You think it's you, I think it's me
If love is not enough than what else can it be?

When I get up to see the powers that be
I know there's one question I'll bring
How can two people look at the same love
And see two completely different things?
It hurts to say the heavy stuff, so we say it lightly
And I'm amazed at how often I catch us both smiling, if only slightly
But it's maddening, it's saddening, and I want to know

If love is not enough then what's enough? I am waiting
Is there something I should know about the thin ice on which the survivors are skating?
You think it's me, I think it's you
If love is not enough then what else can we do?

So we go on, put on the brave face, but it makes me want to scream
I quit, I give up, I will claw my way out of this bad, bad dream
I love you still, I love you still, I love you still

If love is not enough then what's enough? can you hear me?
I'm sick of the burns I've got on my body from all the perfectly good loves exploding near me
What else can I say? what else can I say?
If love is not enough then we will go on loving anyway
