That Would Be Enough
Look around, look around at how lucky we are To be alive right now Look around, look around How long have you known? A month or so Eliza, you should have told me I wrote to the General a month ago No I begged him to send you home You should have told me I’m not sorry I knew you’d fight Until the war was won But you deserve a chance to meet your son Look around, look around at how lucky we are To be alive right now Will you relish being a poor man’s wife Unable to provide for your life? I relish being your wife Look around, look around Look at where you are Look at where you started The fact that you’re alive is a miracle Just stay alive, that would be enough And if this child Shares a fraction of your smile Or a fragment of your mind, look out world That would be enough I don’t pretend to know The challenges you’re facing The worlds you keep erasing and creating in your mind But I’m not afraid I know who I married So long as you come home at the end of the day That would be enough We don’t need a legacy We don’t need money If I could grant you peace of mind If you could let me inside your heart Oh, let me be a part of the narrative In the story they will write someday Let this moment be the first chapter Where you decide to stay And I could be enough And we could be enough That would be enough
