That's Enough

Searching, healing, and being satisfied with what we have. A simple song for the season.
NOTES
That’s Enough

The day before Christmas I got a box in the mail general delivery up in St. Clair’s Pier
An alpaca sweater the colors of a winter sunset and it might be the only present I get this year
And that’s enough

The lights out on main street are flickering
The children in the church pew are snickering
The mothers and the fathers are all wondering if that’s enough

I don’t know if my ex-boyfriend loves me anymore but I’ll take responsibility for my part
I don’t know if he still loves me anymore but I’m no longer afraid for the safety of my heart
And that’s enough

The lights out on main street are flickering
The children in the church pew are snickering
The preacher ten minutes into his sermon is wondering if that’s enough

Christmas eve, it’s 5 degrees below and you’re the only one in this town I halfway know
And the snow is piling up on the doorsteps and the sidewalks and the wind is blowing a piccolo thru a crack in the window
And there’s a sofa in the living room by the fireplace but there’s a big bed up the stairs
And we lay together under the comforter, under the canopy and you run your fingers thru my hair
And that’s enough

The lights out on main street are flickering
The children in the church pew are snickering
The bodies in the bedsheets are entangling
The snow’s falling soft like dancing figurines
And everyone’s wondering if that’s enough

The day after Christmas I hang the spare key on the nail and my boots hit the concrete
I’m all wrapped up in the warm colors of a sunset sweater and they’re taking the lights down on main street
Cause that’s enough
