He said he valued duty
I am dutiful
I knew he wanted beauty
I am beautiful
But I am not enough
I am not enough

I take no other comfort
I am loyal
I bear my pain with grace
The perfect royal
But I am not enough
I am not enough

I don't know what he wants
But I'm starting to suspect
That where once I was his jewel
Now I'm a chain around his neck
And I don’t know what to say
Why I'm failing, what I lack
But I am not enough
To bring my husband back

I am the wife he needs
But still unwanted
It hurts to keep my peace
And not confront it

But it’s not enough to want him
It's not enough to cry
I have to still be worth it
Once he decides to try
I'm worth the coming-back-for
He's the center of my world
I haven't let him down
I still can be his girl

But he's out there running free
Doing god-knows-what without me
And it seems as though he's happy we're apart
And I guess I'm not enough to keep his heart
