NOT ENOUGH (a song)

All of the nights  …:. that you made me cry. 
All of the times ….. that you lied.

Your mind was always …. somewhere else. 
Your thoughts were always …. about somebody else.

Not about me.

You couldn’t tell me …. tell me why.
You couldn’t bear …. to watch me cry.

I tried to believe …. that we were in love.
But, we both know …. I was never enough.

Enough for you.

What was I thinking?  I really don’t know. 
I was afraid …. afraid to let you go.

Your mind was always …. somewhere else.
Your thoughts were always …. about somebody else.

Not about me.

You led me on …. thought I didn’t know.
I knew,   but …… couldn’t let you go.

What was I thinking? I really don’t know.
I should have ….. should have let you go. 

Hold me, please hold me tonight.
Stay with me, stay with me …. if only tonight.

Tell me what you feel for me ….. is love.
Tell me just once …. that I am enough.

Enough for you.
