ENOUGH

Verse I

I never could be what you wanted me to be,

I know that now but even now, even now I think about what I could do better. 

How I could have been better if I just stayed by your side.

Because I know even if I ran and ran away from all the truth,

I thought I could outsmart my own brain, 

Well that just makes me the fool.

But here's to trying for you.

 

Chorus

Because I work damn hard enough,

I'm never gonna be enough.

I stood in the way of myself and now I'm

Picking up the pieces of my life,

One by one they fall. 

 

Verse II

Because I never thought I'd be enough,

I never thought I'd smile enough,

I'd never really love my life or love love.

Never love my love, I'd never love my loves,

I've never heard my beating heart.

Lover lover lover lover love my heart,

Is it enough my heart?

Don't let my thoughts get in the way.

Lover lover love my heart,

They never said it'd be this hard,

Will this be my life?

I thought if I stood quiet in the night time,

I could wait a life time, for you.

 

This is a rare gem! It has been played live only a handful of times. I often think of it as the B Side to Reservoir as they were written about the same person many months apart from each other.

This song has always been played in a stripped-back form even if I have the full band on stage. Deciding to play stripped-back songs in the middle of full band sets was the beginning of learning that I could be more creative with the choices I made on stage.

 

Initially, when I started Last Apollo, I wanted each song to be loud and bombastic in order to blow audiences away and make sure they remembered me. Although my songwriting has improved a lot since 'Enough', it was definitely the beginning of a more mature, more considered approach to songwriting. I was no longer writing to try and impress anyone and was instead simply trying to process something that felt beyond words.
