Love is Enough


words and music by Ray Ducharme and Rick Paul

With drapes drawn so tight
The room black as night
White wine to make it right, we came together
She’d been drinking way too much
Now she longed for someone’s touch
Just once more she had to hear someone whisper

"I love you"
But the words never came
"I need you"
Were words I could not say
When I said, "I want you"
She knew it was not love
But on that day
It was enough

She had never done
That with anyone
But it had been so long since he’d been near her
Though she tried to be a good wife
The bottle had swallowed his life
It was time for her to hear someone whisper

"I love you"
But the words never came
"I need you"
Were words I could not say
When I said, "I want you"
She knew it was not love
But on that day
It was enough

That motel’s long gone
But we’re still going strong
Didn’t take me long to learn to love her
Now she’s loving her life
‘Cause her man is treating her right
How I love to watch her eyes light when I whisper

"I love you"
And know she feels the same
"I need you"
I mean just what I say
When I say, "I want you"
She knows it is true love
And on this day
Love is enough

Love is enough for the two of us
Love is enough
Always enough
For the two of us
Love is enough
