"Enough Of Me" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
This precise time and right here
Are not going anywhere
I've had enough of new todays
For once I'd like to go another way
I speak my last words and then remember it may never end
All that I've won I have lost
Each passing moment cuts me off

Well, I don't like to waste a chance but they're overflowing
What I don't do will get done by somebody
When I was five I saw some plants ungrowing
Whether seen forwards or back they'd keep going
They'd keep going

If the seasons which change were all still
It's so easy to see life would fail
Whatever slips out of our hands

Will find it's way back to us once again
If the seasons which change were all still
It's so easy to see life would fail
Whatever slips out of our hands

Will find it's way back to us once again [Repeat: x3]
Once again

    General CommentI think these lyrics are slightly off. This is what I think they are:

    This precise time and right here
    Are not going anywhere
    Ive had enough of new todays
    For once Id like to go another way

    I speak my last words and then remember it may never end
    All that Ive won I have lost
    Each passing moment cuts me off

    Well, I dont like to waste a chance but theyre overflowing
    What I dont do will get done by somebody
    When I was five I saw some plants ungrowing
    Whether seen forwards or back theyd keep going
    Theyd keep going

    If the seasons which change were all still
    Its so easy to see life would fail
    Whatever slips out of our hands
    Will find its way back to us once again

    If the seasons which change were all still
    Its so easy to see life would fail
    Whatever slips out of our hands
    Will find its way back to us once again
    Will find its way back to us once again
    Will find its way back to us once again
    Once again


    It's an amazing song. One of my favorites already and I can't stop listening to it. I derive a lot of the meaning from the last lines:

    "If the seasons which change were are still
    It's so easy to see life would fail.
    Whatever slips out of our hands
    will find its way back to us once again"

    I interpret it as without our struggles and hardships, without knowing failure and grief, we can never succeed as humans. We need to go through periods of coldness and desolation, like a winter, in order to learn from it and grow further we emerge out of it, in our spring. I think he's saying that feelings of depression and sadness are temporary, that, whatever feelings of happiness "slipped out of our hands" will return to us eventually, just like spring does every year. Such a great song and message.

    General CommentThis is actually a song that shows true pain..yet by the end of it there is a closure of some sort.. it symbolizes death, and the rebirth that comes with it.. its not suicide exactly just the death of a bad piece of ones personality and how the same way as death it will form a new life

    My InterpretationThis song for me is about a couple of related things:

    - Realising 'now' and the fact it never goes anywhere, because all there ever is, is now.
    - Now exists always, it's never gone. Allow things to be, instead of seeking. Things will be the way they are.
    - If nothing changed, life would have no colour.
    - What we lose will find it's way back, we had no thing, there for no thing will find its way back (see other tracks, cba to look them up)
