Soft Power - Happy Enough Lyrics

2019 Off-Broadway
Soft Power the Musical - Happy Enough Lyrics


XUE XING:
I was taught "Don't expect too much from life."
To have a roof overhead, a job, a wife
I'm happy enough
I'm happy enough

I was taught to be strong. We were hit if we cried
Who am I to want more than my status and pride
I'm happy enough
I'm happy enough

HILLARY:
I was taught I could be anything I wanted
Even President of the United States
If I worked hard enough, gave my all enough
So I worked, and I gave
To my people and my country til I realized today
That there's nothing left inside, I gave all of me away
And why am I so lonely?
I'm never enough
I will be never enough

XUE XING:
I was taught not to listen to the doubts
When they creep into my head
"Ignore those feelings, put them away."
So I ignored them, barely noticed
That I'm completely empty, so lonely, filled with dread
That it wouldn't even matter if someone stabbed me dead
'Cause I never started living
It's not enough
It has never been enough

(spoken) Your people,
They never get to see this side of you

HILLARY: (spoken)
This part, I keep for myself

XUE XING:
You have to save face

HILLARY: (spoken)
Now we both know what we hide from the world

(sung) And isn't that love?

XUE XING:
Is that love?

HILLARY:
Isn't that love?

XUE XING:
Is that love?

BOTH:
To lose your face
And open your heart

HILLARY:
Isn't this love?

XUE XING:
Is this love?

HILLARY:
Isn't this love?

XUE XING:
Is this love?

BOTH:
To lose your face
And open your heart

HILLARY:
Isn't this?
