Am I Good Enough?

Amy Lee [1] has an incredible voice. Singer, pianist and songwriter — she is a truly talented musician. She’s an artist I admire, with “Good Enough” topping the list of my favorite songs of hers. She said the song was inspired by her husband (long-time friend and soon to be fiance’ at the time).

While some have criticized Amy Lee and her band Evanescence [2] as being “pop” goth-metal, corny and sophomoric, I find her songwriting to be warm and heartfelt, and her soaring vocals to be quite enchanting.

 

 

Good Enough [3]

Under your spell again.
I can’t say no to you.
Crave my heart and it’s bleeding in your hand.
I can’t say no to you.

Shouldn’t let you torture me so sweetly.
Now I can’t let go of this dream.
I can’t breathe but I feel…

Good enough,
I feel good enough for you.

Drink up sweet decadence.
I can’t say no to you,
And I’ve completely lost myself, and I don’t mind.
I can’t say no to you.

Shouldn’t let you conquer me completely.
Now I can’t let go of this dream.
Can’t believe that I feel…

Good enough,
I feel good enough.
It’s been such a long time coming, but I feel good.

And I’m still waiting for the rain to fall.
Pour real life down on me.
‘Cause I can’t hold on to anything this good enough.
Am I good enough for you to love me too?

So take care what you ask of me,
’cause I can’t say no.
