Sometimes I wonder where it is love goes 
I don't know if even Heaven knows 
But I know you had some dreams that didn't 
Quite come true 

And now I'm not the one, little girl, who's 
Keeping you 
I was either standing in your shadow or 
Blocking your light 

Though I kept on trying I could not make 
It right 
For you girl- 
There's just not enough love in the world 

I know people hurt you so bad 
They don't know the damage they can do, 
And it makes me so sad- 
How we knock each other down just like 

Children on a playground 
Even after that ol' sun went down- 
I was either standing in your shadow or 
Or blocking your light 

Though I kept on trying I could not 
Make it right 
For you girl- 
There's just not enough love in the world 

Oh darlin', this is still a shady little town 
And sometimes it's so hard to smile- 
For the world, for the camera- 
And still have something left 

You don't have to prove nothin' to nobody 
Just take good care of yourself 
I'm not easy to live with- 
I know that it's true 

You're no picnic either, babe 
And that's one of the things I loved about you 
But a time will come around when we need to settle down 
Got to get of this merry-go-round 

I was either standing in your shadow or 
Blocking you're light 
Though I kept on trying I could not make 
It right 

For you girl- 
There's just not enough love in the world
