YOU'RE ENOUGH (Richard Carpenter (m) / John Bettis (l) ) As released by the Carpenters on < Voice Of The Heart > 1983 You're enough If I never had another Never hold another lover Baby, you're enough. All the rest are second best Compared to you. You're enough If I never know another After what we've known together Baby, you're enough. I've already had my sweetest dreams come true. Can't you see In these eyes that adore you I've been waiting here for you Baby, can't you see. Look at me See love's greatest non-believer Believing that she might be seeing love In your eyes. Stars above Made for wishin', made for dreamers Won't you listen to this heart And what it's dreamin' of. If they'll only shine their lucky starlight down on me Make it bright enough for only you to see Baby, you're enough for me. (bridge) Look at me See love's greatest non-believer Believing that she might be seeing love In your eyes. Stars above Made for wishin', made for dreamers Won't you listen to this heart And what it's dreamin' of. If they'll only shine their lucky starlight down on me Make it bright enough for only you to see Baby, you're enough for me. Baby, you're enough for me. (fade) NOTES: The Carpenters were a talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. As of 2013, they had sold more than 100 million units (source BBC). Their distinctive soft rock sound provided contrast to the loud and raucous sounds of the day. As well as singing, Karen was accomplished at drums and brother Richard at piano. Sadly, the duo's career ended prematurely with the death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. < Made In America > was the final album released before Karen's passing. The Grammy Hall Of Fame recognized the Carpenters as providing music of 'lasting qualitative or history significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award. To all Carpenters aficionados, two particular songs resonate as poignant and emotionally charged reminders of Karen Carpenter. This was one of two songs in her final recording session, the other being < Now > (see elsewhere in this ILP database). The album on which it appears < Voice Of The Heart >, was released after her death, compiled by her brother Richard and contained previously unreleased tracks.
