it's not enough

my beating silence likes to haunt
in frost covered fields I find you,
i could never know what you want
i've assembled a list of shit to do
but it will remain incomplete, dear
i never could break free
i wonder what you see in me

but i'll hold you till the sun goes into hiding
if your heart's searching, it'll make a great finding
everybody is stupid and gross
but you're my light in the darkness
no matter how the snow drifts, you can always count on me,
but it's not enough you're my only reason to be
