"Good Enough" as written by and Amy Lee....
Under your spell again
I can't say no to you
Crave my heart and it's bleeding in your hand
I can't say no to you

Shouldn't let you torture me so sweetly
Now I can't let go of this dream
I can't breathe but I feel

Good enough
I feel good enough for you

Drink up sweet decadence
I can't say no to you
And I've completely lost myself and I don't mind
I can't say no to you

Shouldn't let you conquer me completely
Now I can't let go of this dream
Can't believe that I feel

Good enough
I feel good enough
It's been such a long time coming
But I feel good

And I'm still waiting for the rain to fall
Pour real life down on me
'Cause I can't hold on to anything

This good enough
Am I good enough
For you to love me too?

So take care what you ask of me
'Cause I can't say no

    General CommentAmy Lee has said that this was the last song she wrote for the album, and it's the song that best represents her current state of mind. She said it's just about the only happy song she's ever written, and she was a little scared to show it to the rest of the band, but they like it too.

    To me it doesn't seem completely happy though... "I can't say no" suggests that she's sort of trapped in some way. Or maybe everything's so brilliant at the moment she can't be negative. Either way, I am sort of sensing a more negatove undertone to it.

    General CommentThis song relates to me exactly! Like, it wouldn't surprise me if it was written about me! Let me explain ...

    I have/had an online friend. He's 20, I'm 16, I'm in Australia, he's not. So far nothing, right? However, I developed quite the strong crush on this guy. And I would do anything he asked me to. I literally can't say no to him. And it's kinda like he uses me sometimes, like I'm just a little kid to him ... but I still have feelings for him. For me this song is exactly that - and saying that sometimes I really feel like I'm good enough for that guy, even if I'm not.

    It's all about what you think of yourself, I guess ;)

    Just my two cents.

    General CommentI think this is about a crush, and how she just can't let go of it. It destroyed her for a while, but finally, she learned to accept it and finally feels 'good enough'. She knows it's bad, that it's not good for her (decadence) but it makes her feel so happy and she doesn't mind that she's lost herself.

    Still, even while accepting it for what it is and not agonising over her feelings, she can't help wonder if she really is good enough and if she can keep it.

    MemoryThis song describes perfectly my feelings.

    There is this Man, i know he's bad for me, and he doesn't care. he just want my body. I know he will never start a relationship with me, always just sex.

    But i care a lot for him. I can't let him go, i come back everytime he want me to.He make me feel good when i'm around him, give me the feeling to be someone. i lost so much to him...

    i think thats what amylee wanted to say in this song,that when you so deeply in Love, you would do anything for this Person. Even though she's very bad for yoz.

    General CommentIt get's happy at the end.
    When she sings "and I'm still waiting for the rain to fall" it's get's happier at the end.
    The intro is amazing.
