I'm Not Enough
Lyrics
You see something when you look at me,
Something I could never hope to see.
Tucked away and hidden deep inside,
But I don't share this belief in me.

You swear to me that there's something there,
Brighter than the sun.
oh, run away, just run from me.
'Cause I don't know if I'm enough,
I'm not sent from above.
So run away, 'cause I'm not enough to hold that kind of love, oh no.

I'm ashamed of some things I've said,
Words I'd hoped had been left for dead.
Phrases never uttered from the heart,
Simply garbage from my foolish head,

Now you swear to me that there's something there,
Brighter than the sun.
oh, run away, just run from me.
'Cause I don't know if I'm enough,
I'm not sent from above, no, no,
Run away, 'cause I'm not enough to hold that kind of love, oh no, no, no.

I'm not enough. I'm not enough.

I'm no angel though you think I am,
I just live here doing what I can.
Oh, if I could share your view of me...
I yearn to be that kind of man.

You swear to me that there's something there,
Brighter than the sun.
oh, run away, just run from me.
'Cause I don't know if I'm enough,
I'm not sent from above, no, no,
Run away, 'cause I'm not enough to hold that kind of love, oh no, no, no, no.
Just run away, 'cause I'm not enough to hold that kind of love.
