"Not Enough Love In The World" as written by and Danny/tench Kortchmar....
Sometimes I wonder where it is love goes
I don't know if even Heaven knows
I know you had some dreams that didn't quite come true
Now I'm not the one, little girl, who's keeping you

I was either standing in your shadow
Or blocking your light
Though I kept on trying I could not make it right
For you girl
There's just not enough love in the world

I know people hurt you, so bad
They don't know the damage they can do,
And it makes me so sad
How we knock each other down just like
Children on a playground
Even after that ol' sun went down

I was either standing in your shadow
Or blocking your light
Though I kept on trying I could not make it right
For you girl
There's just not enough love in the world

Oh darlin', baby, this is still a shady little town
And sometimes it's so hard to smile
For the world, for the camera
Still have something left
You don't have to prove nothin' to nobody
Just take good care of yourself

I'm not easy to live with
I know that it's true
You're no picnic either, babe
That's one of the things I loved about you
Time will come around when we need to settle down
Got to get of this merry-go-round

I was either standing in your shadow
Or blocking you're light
Though I kept on trying I could not make it right
For you girl
There's just not enough love in the world
For you girl
There's just not enough love in the world
Not enough love in the world
In the world
In the world
In the world

    General Commentthis song always brings tears to my eyes... for some reason, the line "i was either standing in your shadow, or blocking your light" gets to me every time. this song feels so raw to me. he's saying "look babe, this is it, sink or swim, take it or leave it, but i love you, okay?!" he's reminding her to put the past behind her because he may be the one. =)

    General CommentThis is such a great song. It is so true about relationships. The best line is, "I'm not easy to live with- I know that it's true You're no picnic either, babe And that's one of the things I loved about you." My boyfriend and I always quote this to each other.
