a place in the sun/almost enough 

A place in the sun

I’ve seen that look in your face before

I know what it is your searching for

Your looking for an escape

Someway out of all this red tape

I know the winter leaves you reeling

Like a love song with no feeling

So the last year has been a living hell

I know cos I was there when you fell

Chorus

We are all searching for a place in the sun

But you can’t find peace on the run

Sometimes your safer in the shade

Learning to deal with the mess you made

Won’t you stay a little longer

Time can make us stronger

Always thought of you as a soul mate

Don’t wanna see you give in to hate

I’m trying my best to understand

Just wish you could except a helping hand

Release some of that pride

And let us stand side by side

Chorus

We are all searching for a place in the sun

But you can’t find peace on the run

Sometimes your safer in the shade

Learning to deal with the mess you made

Almost enough

We both came from the wrong side of the track

Been hurt but we made it back

But our scares refuse to heal

Just hold me now and pretend it’s real

The spark between us is so strong

But I know with me you don’t belong

 

We started this at 90 miles an hour

It’s like trying to grow an instant flower

Something’s just take time to grow

I need it fast and you want to go slow

The more I try to give you time

The more I doubt you are mine

Chorus#

We get along real fine

Sharing tenderness all the time

Gentle huggin and hard kissing

But we both know something’s missing

Babe it’s almost enough

But it’s just not love

The past has given you nothing but pain

It drags you down like a ball and chain

You have to make the load lighter

Let me show you a world so much brighter

Open your heart a little everyday

It’s the only way to make the go pain away

Bridge#

I just wish you could learn to trust

Before you turn love into dust

I can give you all the space you need

It’s just unfair for both of us to bleed

I ain’t got no hard sell

Cos I’m taking a chance as well

But it’s one I need to take

Call me a fool but I’m no fake

Just give us a test run

Don’t give up before it’s begun

Chorus#

We get along real fine

Sharing tenderness all the time

Gentle huggin and hard kissing

But we both know something’s missing

Babe it’s almost enough

But it’s just not love
