Song: Good Enough
Album: The Open Door
Mood: Lovey dovey
Last Valentine’s Day I wrote an anti-holiday post, mainly because I was single and somewhat jaded by the dating scene–having been single for a year and a half at the time. Although still not 100% convinced the holiday is needed, I find myself in a much better place this year than last year. So to celebrate my enjoyment of bliss–and guaranteed “romp” time later–here is the one and only happy Evanescence song, unless of course you count a few demos from their early days.
“Good Enough” isn’t exactly the picture-perfect love song. Instead, it’s about finally finding real love but at the back of Lee’s mind, there will always be the slight lingering feelings of worry. Not doubt as in the relationship won’t work or that she doesn’t love her partner, but that she hopes she is good enough for him. “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?” Despite her insecurities, she’s accepting of love and willing to do anything to keep him close. She just can’t say no to him, and not in the “I’m desperate” way.
After more than a decade on the dating scene, I’m hoping this is the one that sticks because I feel good enough damn it. I’m secure in both who I am as a person and as a partner. “It’s been such a long time coming, but I feel good.” Happy Valentine’s Day and may our readers find true love.
