LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH (TO STAY ALIVE) [demo version] (Robert J. Purvis)

Was around about the month of May when I packed my things and left

Heading out across this land I'd sown

We really couldn't make ends meet and things were looking bad

I had to take this chance to save our home


My heart was filled with sadness as I kissed them all goodbye

We were still so much in love, but love's just not enough to stay alive


I must have walked for miles and miles when a farmer called me from a fence

He said that he would pay me for my time

Well the days were long and the nights were cold

But I kept my eyes above searching for that rainbow in the sky


I felt the need to hold you as the days just passed me by

We were still so much in love, but love's just not enough to stay alive

Yeah


[scat singing (in place of solo)]


CHORUS:

Love's just not enough, no no no

Love's just not enough, no no no

Love's just not enough

Not enough to stay alive

Love's just not enough, no no no

Love's just not enough, no no no

Love's just not enough

Not enough to stay alive.
