Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough...

    Most of us children of the 80s would probably have heard of this song called 'Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough' sung by Patty Smyth and Don Henley in the early 90s...I've always thought it was a really sad song...the idealist cannot except the fact that sometimes, love really just ain't enough...and as the idealist became more jaded by the world, it became clear that really, sometimes love just ain't sustain a long distance relationship overcome the odds of 2 people from different worlds staying committed to a long-term relationship....or even for the union of 'a daughter of Christ' and 'a son of Lucifer'...

    Heard the song playing on LiteFM (thanks to my bro) yesterday while on the way to attend a distant cousin's wedding...can't help thinking that the song tugged at a raw nerve...

Now, I don't want to lose you
But I don't want to use you
just to have somebody by my side.
And I don't want to hate you,
I don't want to take you
but I don't want to be the one to cry.
And that don't really matter to anyone anymore.
But like a fool I keep losing my place
And I keep seeing you walk through that door.

But there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
And it's sad when you know it's your heart you can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just aint enough.

Now, I could never change you
I don't want to blame you.
Baby, you don't have to take the fall.
Yes, I may have hurt you, but I did not desert you.
Maybe I just want to have it all.
It makes a sound like thunder
it makes me feel like rain.
And like a fool who will never see the truth,
I keep thinking something's gonna change.

And there's no way home
When it's late at night and you're all alone.
Are there things that you wanted to say?
And do you feel me beside you in your bed,
there beside you, where I used to lay?

And there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
And it's sad when you know it's your heart they can't touch.
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are.
Baby, sometimes, love just ain't enough.
    Oh well, perhaps human love isn't enough...but i choose to believe that God's love is enough...although sometimes we are wretched enough to celebrate the birth of Christ (who is God's love incarnate) in the most undeserving way... may the Lord forgive those of us who have forsaken His Love to chase after meaningless endeavour...
