lyrics

Good enough

Tired as I am, I don't want to sleep without you
And so my fingers are fumbling
With letters and keys
Inside I'm sore
Am I good enough?

They say, pressure makes diamonds
(I hate clichés
Except for those I love)
But broken bones and spirits are nothing I desire
I do not want the cold remains of coal
Aeons in the making
I want your warmth to lead me into dreams

Waiting up, I'm scared of failing
And ashamed not to be working
And astonished to be trying
Because truly, I do not want to be good enough
I want to be so much better
