"Not Enough" as written by and Maida/taggart/coutts....
There's nothing you can say
Nothing you can do
There's nothing in between
You know the truth

Nothing left to face
There's nothing left to lose
Nothing takes your place

When they say
You're not that strong
You're not that weak
It's not your fault
And when you climb up to your hill
Up to your place
I hope you're well

There's nothing left to prove
There's nothing I won't do
There's nothing like the pain
I feel for you

Nothing left to hide
Nothing left to fear
I am always here

When they say
You're not that strong
You're not that weak
It's not your fault
And when you climb up to your hill
Up to your place
I hope you're well

What you want
What you lost
What you had
What is gone is over

What you got
What you love
What you need
What you have is real

It's not enough
It's not enough
It's not enough
It's not enough, I'm sorry

It's not enough
It's not enough
It's not enough
It's not enough

When they say
You're not that strong
You're not that weak
It's not your fault
And when you climb up to your hill
Up to your place
I hope you're well

It's not enough
No
It's not enough
It's not enough

    General CommentThis song I think is a great song. The cd is very good too. this song I think is about a girl that cheats on her boyfriend that loves her very much bu tthe pain he caused him is too much for him to forgiver her, and even through the begging and asking for forgiveness, he cant bring himself to love her the way he once did.

    General Commenti dunno about the girl cheating on her boyfriend stuff. he seems pretty supportive to the person he's singin the song to. its actually pretty confusing but its a great song off a great album.

    General Commentto me this song is about someone who is just coming near to the end in a period of depression. he is supporting her saying 'when they (whoever they may be, whether they be the voices she hears or the people depressing her) say you aren't strong, you are (you aren't that weak). they are saying she has to get out if it and to be happy again. there isn't anything left to lose/fear - shes lost everything already, so they are convincing her to try and get up again

    General CommentI pretty much agree with Ashley on the depression thing : He's really, really supportive of her, and reassuring. He wishes the best for her, and hopes she'll find a way to be happy again. He tries his best to be there, but alas, it's 'not enough' to her, because she can never get 'what she wants, what she lost,' again. Everything he gives her, it's all she has now. It's 'what she's got, what she needs, what she loves, what she has'. It's real, but it's still 'not enough.'

    How sad as I think it is, I still adore this song. Amazing.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourites (the other one being Somewhere Out There) off of the new CD. Doesn't compare to the older stuff but is good nonetheless. It's nice and mellow and makes me feel sad (but in a good way!) I see it as a guy who's willing to do anything for the girl, he'd give her the world if he could, but she needs to find the strength within herself first.
