When I look in your eyes, I recognize
This sadness, is it yours or mine?

If I let myself go, loss all control
Oh baby, can you read my restless mind?

Diamond in the rough
Never enough
Reluctant love

When I lay in your arms, so safe and warm
I wonder, could I lay in the arms of another?

If you gave everything, all that I need
Temptation, could you give me the sun and the sea?

Diamond in the rough
Are you enough?
Reluctant love

Oooh, this apathy
Fear that you'll leave me

Reluctant love, reluctant love
Reluctant love
Could I be enough?
