“Never Enough”

When I hold you in my arms,

I want us to become one.

Sometimes I fear I’ll break you,

And I’ll be undone.

 

But it’s never enough

Just to hold you

No matter how I might enfold you

It’s never enough for you.

 

I tell you that I need you

More than food and air and water,

And I try to give it all to you,

To be all the things that matter.

 

But it’s never enough

Just to need you

No matter how my giving has freed you

It’s never enough for you.

 

I tell you that I love you

More than life and more than living,

But the only way you’ll really know

Is through all that I am giving.

 

But it’s never enough

Just to love you

’Though no one else could be above you

It’s never enough for you.

 

’Cause I can never hold you strong enough,

Or give enough from what I need,

Or love enough with my heart and soul

Or love enough

Or love enough

Because you deserve so much more.
