Lyrics:
My hands won’t stop shaking. 
My eyes can’t seem to fix on anything.
My mind won’t stop racing. Taking off, putting on, taking off this ring.
My heart’s a bloody soldier. So I’m just trying to drag us both to someplace safe.
With the bombs falling over. And I know I can’t bear the weight.
I don’t think we’re gonna make it.
I don’t think I can take it.
My love was not enough.
I gave you everything. I was your wife.
And my love was not enough.
I gave you fourteen years of my life.
Mountain pose and peaceful warrior. Close my eyes, click my heels three more times.
Call my therapist and lawyer. And brace myself for unwanted advice.
I don’t know the woman in the mirror with the shadows beneath her taillight eyes
Dirty mascara tears, cutting right through this disguise.
I don’t think I can hide it.
I’m too tired to fight it.
My love was not enough.
I gave you everything. I was your wife.
And my love was not enough.
I gave you fourteen years of my life.
So I become the broken habit, box forgotten in the attic
The song that fades to static as I drive away
Not enough. There goes fourteen years of my life.
My love was not enough.
I gave you everything. I was your wife.
And my love was not enough.
I gave you fourteen years of my life
