“Not Enough”

So, here’s a letter for a girl,
I’ve never felt this way before;
She’s in the faces of the strangers I walk by
When it rains with no clouds in the sky.

So, here, the words I’m scared to say
Though she won’t hear ‘em anyways:
“Dear Elle, I’m nothing but a stupid kid
But I promised myself I’d have given you everything

And the sound of my breath breaking
Is the soundtrack to this letter.
I may never hold your hands again
But I feel a little better
When I look at all the scars you left
Right underneath my chest.

And now I can’t hold on,
Does it have to hurt so much?
It’s a game I’ll always lose
‘Cause I love you
But it’s not enough.

So, here’s the song I wrote last night.
Remember when I said I was fine?
Well, it’s been ages since I smiled for real
And this rain’s the only thing I can feel.

So, here’s the truth, I have to lie
‘Cause you won’t trust me otherwise
‘Cause, dear, the truth is I’m a stupid kid
Who would die, right now, with a kiss

And the sound of my heart breaking
Is the soundtrack to my life.
I may never see your face again
But it’s stuck in my mind
When I wake up ‘till I go to bed,
When I go to bed, ‘till I wake up

And now I can’t hold on,
Does it have to hurt so much?
It’s a game I’ll always lose
‘Cause I love you
But it’s not enough.”
