Enough of Love

You can stand at the door and wait, but I’d bring a coat.

Everybody knows how to listen
When they want to give you advice
They tell you how to live
and they tell you when to die
and that’s alright

But tonight
I would rather be heard

And I remember how you’d listen
When I’d talk
and my cancer’s in remission
but my body’s drawn in chalk
And that’s alright

Cause tonight
I’m gonna sleep in the dirt

And it’s gonna be a long time
Before I open the door again
A long time
Before I open the door
It’s gonna be a long time
Before I open the door again
A long time
Before I open the door

And so
Baby if you’re waiting
for the day I open up
then you are wasting
time by chasing down
a heart that’s had enough
of love, enough

Here am I just patiently waiting for the day when
my door will open up and my love will show right up
and I will surely be
the fool that she sees
and that’s alright

But tonight
I would rather be told

And we would play with fire
as I savor all her lies and
caustic broken promises
would trickle down my throat
She would tell me that she’d stay
Though I know she’d really go
But that’s alright

Cause tonight
I want somebody to hold

And it’s gonna be a long time
Before I open the door again
A long time
Before I open the door
It’s gonna be a long time
Before I open the door again
A long time
Before I open the door

And so
Baby if you’re waiting
for the day I open up
then you are wasting
time by chasing down
a heart had enough
of love, enough
