Enough – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Minute of Your Time (2020).

If this is it, then this is it 

I’m not going to beg you to stay

If you want to leave then the door is open

If you want to run, I’m too tired to chase

You know where to find me

I’m right where I’ve always been 

You can change your mind

But I won’t be checking in

I’ll be looking forward, looking in

Look past the past into what might begin

I’ll be falling down, dusting myself off

Not always standing strong

But still standing is enough

If, to my devastation, I never get that invitation

Even though I swore that I would 

And don’t get all of it, well thank god I saw part of it 

I did everything that I could

No, I didn’t have it hardest

But that doesn’t mean it was fun

I won’t bemoan my battles

Coz look what they’ve become

I’ll be looking forward, looking in

Look past the past into what might begin

I’ll be falling down, dusting myself off

Not always standing strong

But still standing is enough

Just keep looking forward, looking in

Look past the past into what might begin

Keep on falling down, dusting yourself off

Not always standing strong

But still standing is enough
