Patty Smyth – Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough lyrics
----------------------------------------
Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough
By Patty Smyth
----------------------------------------

Now, I don't want to lose you, but I don't want to use you
Just to have somebody by my side.
And I don't want to hate you,
I don't want to take you, but I don't want to be the one to cry.

And that don't really matter to anyone anymore.
But like a fool I keep losing my place
And I keep seeing you walk through that door.

[Chorus:]

But there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
And it's sad when you know it's your heart you can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just aint enough.

Now, I could never change you, I don't want to blame you.
Baby, you don't have to take the fall.
Yes, I may have hurt you, but I did not desert you.
Maybe I just want to have it all.

It makes a sound like thunder, it makes me feel like rain.
And like a fool who will never see the truth,
I keep thinking something's gonna change.

[Chorus:]

And there's no way home, when it's late at night and you're all alone.
Are there things that you wanted to say?
And do you feel me beside you in your bed,
There beside you, where I used to lay?

And there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
And it's sad when you know it's your heart they can't touch.
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just ain't enough.

Baby, sometimes, love... It just ain't enough.
Oh, Oh, Oh, No.

    My daughter was diagnosed with a mental illness at age 17. She was seing a counsellor once a week. She was encouraged and helped by that counsellor to leave home and become independent of her family. For 6 months I had no contact with her and was in total despair as I found out from her friends that she was continuously being hospitalised for suicide attempts. This was something she had not attempted whilst in my care. Everytime I heard this song I would cry and blame myself for not being able to hold onto her. I prayed day and night to our Lord Jesus Christ to protect her and help her come back to her family who missed her and loved her so much. Our prayers were answered and she can now see that some of the decisions she made along with the counsellor were not in her best interest. We now have a loving and strong relationship. She knows that this song is special and now we both cry together when we hear it. She still has a long way to go but at least now she is being supported by the people who love her the most not the people who know it all.
