"Frank & Ava" as written by and Suzanne Vega....
On the way to the bidet is when the trouble used to start
It didn't mean she wasn't queen of the tinderbox that was his heart
Her fire, his desire meant that everything must come undone
And, so, now we know that it's not enough to be in love
(Not enough to be in love, not enough to be in love)

He's so true, she is, too; she says "I love you Frank," and then they drank all night
What a fight! He says "it isn't me you're thinking of"
She's cool; it makes him cruel, and they needle till the jewels go raining down
Upon the ground; she says "it's not enough to be in love"

(It's not enough, it's not enough, it's not enough to be in love)
Not enough to be in love
(It's not enough, it's not enough, it's not enough to be in love)

They woke up, but they broke up; they were so volatile, and all the while life passed
And it went fast; and yet they never could forget their chemistry
Like you and me, it proved to keep them both apart for life
And so, now we know that it's not enough to be in love

(Not enough to be in love)
(Not enough to be in love)
Not enough to be in love
