"Lark" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
So
So long
So long ago
There wasn't anyone out there I thought I needed to know
But no more
When I find the day leave my mind in the evening just as the day before

I saw the window was open
The cool air
I don't know what you saw there
Don't know what you saw in me
Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's understood
There's not enough of me

I saw that something was broken
I've crossed the line
I'll point you to a better time
A safer place to be
Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's done no good

Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's done no good

    General Commentthis is so sad. this song. it reminds me that sometimes you love someone even more when the other person's love isnt returned. you keep holding on because you know if you let go theyre not going to come after you.

    i think this song is talking about when a girl finally realizes that she has to let go.

    General CommentOh bonefish. That is exactly what this song means to me. It's exactly what is happening to me right now. This song has been on non-stop repeat for the past 2 weeks. Sometimes you just can't be enough.

    My InterpretationTo me, it isn't about about someone whose date doesn't love them back. Instead, I think she's singing about not being able to love.
    I believe she's someone who has been broken by life, pushed deep into despair. She doesn't know how anyone could love someone as wretched as her, and it's all for naught, because there isn't enough left of her to be able to love back in return. She feels sorry for her lover and wants to set them free.
    Perhaps by the song title "Lark" they refer to her no longer wanting to be chained by this person's love, or that they want to free their paramour from their own lack of love, as birds are generally associated with freedom.

    It is truly a beautiful and bittersweet song.
