Better pack your bags and run
Or stay until the job is done
Baby you could sit and hope
That providence will fray the rope
And sink like a stone
Or go it alone

And isn't it enough for you
Isn't it enough?
Isn't it enough for you
Isn't it enough?
For you...

So better pack your bags and run
Send it to oblivion
Where you don't look like anyone
That anyone would care about
And do what you do
To leave her is you

And isn't it enough for you
Isn't it enough
Isn't it enough for you
Isn't it enough

And isn't it enough?
Like Majorino and Pobluff
Wondering aloud if help is on the way

And baby isn't this your chance
To make a break with circumstance

And isn't it enough to prove today's the day?
Isn't it enough to prove today's the day?

    General Commentthe lyrics are wrong...

    To leave her is you

    should be: til it buries you

    and "Like Majorino and Pobluff"

    should be: like Major Reno at the Bluff

    General CommentI had bought this cd just a week or two before watching the Jennifer Lopez movie "Enough", which features this song. The movie was about an abused woman who breaks away to make a new startand becomes much stronger in the process So, for me that's the meaning this song has taken on. And it fits in the movie perfectly. Great song and great movie.

    Song MeaningI love the lyrics and her voice.

    This song is about someone who's in an insane environment, and the last straw that breaks the camel's back happens and that person decides to breakaway.

    It could be about breaking away from a relationship, leaving home or just quitting a job.

    "And isn't it enough to prove today's the day?" - It's like she's saying isn't there enough reasons for you to get the hell out of this situation you're in?

    General CommentThe line about "Major Reno at the bluff" sent me to Wikipedia, so I thought I'd weigh in with what I learned.

    Major Reno served under General Custer at the ill-fated Battle of the Little Bighorn. The battle is commonly known as "Custer's Last Stand" because Custer (and a lot of his men) died in the fighting. Reno was ordered to lead an attack from the south, while Custer attacked from the north. The Native strength had been greatly underestimated, and Reno's men were overwhelmed and retreated to a bluff overlooking the village. They took up defensive positions and spent the remainder of that day and much of the next surrounded and under fire, as Custer and his men were wiped out. Towards the end of the second day, the Native forces withdrew and Reno's group was able to escape.

    After the battle, Reno's conduct was questioned - why did he not come to Custer's aid? But he was found to have acted honorably, and carried out his duties in a desperate situation. So Custer and Reno are controversial figures. Custer is either a hero who died heroically, or an arrogant fool who is personally responsible for an avoidable defeat. Reno either failed Custer at great cost, or was smart enough to save himself and his men from a hopeless situation brought about by Custer's flawed plan.

    In the context of the song, I think Aimee invokes him as a sort of patron saint of sensibly abandoning lost causes. Why stick it out when it's hopeless? Save yourself!

    Then again, Aimee's songs rarely have heroes. Maybe she chose a controversial figure on purpose. Relationships fall apart in messy ways, and competing stories tend to emerge from the wreckage. Maybe she's suggesting that the subject of the song give up on the situation, because it's hopeless, but also because they're not really the sort to stick it out anyway. Leaving would be smart - and typical, too.
