  • I could capture all the love the great romantics had
    Sing you a song that ain't half bad
    But that ain't enough
    That ain't enough for you

    And I could run across the world to bring you the sun
    Look in your eyes, one on one
    But that ain't enough
    That ain't enough for you

    And I could carry the weight of your sad times, dear
    And give you the strength to face your fears
    I know I'll never be afraid to say
    I'm here by your side and I'm gonna stay

    I could preach about a love that one shouldn't forsake
    Work on my style of give and take
    But that ain't enough (ain't enough)
    That ain't enough for you (it ain't enough for you)

    Said it ain't enough
    It ain't enough for you (it ain't enough for you)

    And I could carry the weight of your sad times dear
    And give you the strength to face your fears
    I know I'll never be afraid to say
    I'm here by your side and I'm gonna stay
    Just a little closer to you, yeah

    I could pour you a drink like I pour out my heart
    Smile when I'm sad and act dumb when I'm smart
    But that ain't enough (ain't enough)
    That ain't enough for you

    Said it ain't enough (ain't enough)
    Nothing's enough for you
    (It ain't enough for you)

    (Ain't enough)
    (It ain't enough for you)
    Oh, ain't enough (ain't enough)
    No ain't enough for you (it ain't enough for you)

    Why did you leave me?
    Now I said, ain't enough
    Ain't enough (ain't enough)
    That ain't enough for you (ain't enough for you)

    (Ain't enough)
    (It ain't enough for you)
    And now ain't enough (ain't enough)

    (Ain't enough for you)
    (Ain't enough)
