Corey Hart - It Ain't Enough Lyrics

I could capture all the love the great romantics had
Sing you a song that ain't half bad
But that ain't enough... that ain't enough for you
And I could run across the world, to bring you the sun
Look in your eyes one on one
But that ain't enough... that ain't enough for you.

And I could carry the weight of your sad times, dear
And give you the strength to face your fears
I know I'll never be afraid to say
I'm here by your side and I'm gonna stay

I could preach about love that one shouldn't forsake
Work on my style of give and take
But that ain't enough... That ain't enough for you
Said ain't enough... it ain't enough for you

And I could carry the weight of your sad times, dear
And give you the strength to face your fears
I know I'll never be afraid to say
I'm here by your side and I'm gonna stay
Just a little closer to you, yeah

I could pour you a drink like I pour out my heart
Smile when I'm sad and act dumb when I'm smart
But that ain't enough... that ain't enough for you
That ain't enough for you

Corey Hart It Ain't Enough Comments
  1. koreen cam

    this is probably his best--it is raw and full of emotion.

  2. Huntinbear

    Oh ! My Heavens ! Those Lips !!!

  3. Oppothumbs M

    I'm out of touch but always thought this was his best song. Melody, touching lyrics, well sung, well produced. Easy to forget about him but songs today suck and this type of song would never have a chance today.

  4. Sir Les.

    What the H?! I was 16 in 85 and I can't remember this one.

  5. sauquoit13456

    On this day in 1984 {November 3rd} a video of Corey Hart's "It Ain't Enoung" was aired on the ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time "It Ain't Enough"" was at position #28 on Billboard's Top 100 chart, four weeks later it would peak at #17 {for 2 weeks} and it spent nineteen weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #4 on his native Canada's RPM Singles chart...
    Between 1984 and 1990 the Montreal, Quebec native had ten records on the Top 100 chart, two made the Top 10, "Sunglasses At Night" {#7 for 1 week in 1984} and "Never Surrender" {#3 for 2 weeks in 1985}...
    In his native Canada he charted thirty two times, ten made the Top 10 with two* reaching #1, "Never Surrender" {1985} and "Can't Help Falling In Love" {1986}...
    Corey Mitchell Hart will celebrate his 58th birthday come next May 31st, 2020...
    * And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, he just missed having two more #1 records when both his "In Your Soul" {1988} and "Black Cloud Rain" {1996} peaked at #2 on the RPM Singles chart...

  6. John Franklin

    Great song, I was 24 when it came out, was blasting it In my 79 Trans am. Always thought Corey and Harrison Ford looked a lot alike.

  7. Her Mozart

    Oh Canada...

  8. Mary Wealth

    The opening vocal melody resembles Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown". And considering that Hart was a teenager at the time his fellow Canadian had that hit, the similarity was probably a subconscious nick.

  9. GB MN

    What a hidden gem

  10. Alicia B

    Bring CH bsck, great artist

  11. Alicia B

    Just caught something, gonna replay..

  12. Jeff Austen

    Love this. My first album i ever bought

  13. Bobg Gallagher

    This song is still a great song even in 2019. Man those were sometimes. I mean vinyl and cassettes were the bombs. They still don't sound bad to my ears today. Sure they are getting older but they still know what is good.

  14. Suzanne Swamn

    His lip pout annoys me

  15. John Starnes

    What a song, what a hunk.

  16. Lyle Dixon

    I took my sister to Corey Hart tonight in Vancouver; Corey was the first concert we went to in 1984 Kamloops BC, Memorial Arena. He remains to be an awesome performer. Brought back so many great memories.

    Liza M

    My friend and I were there too. He was amazing and sounded better than ever. My friend said it was one of the best concerts she's ever been to and I totally agree. It was like turning back the hands of time!

  17. tiger1945

    Great song.

  18. dana simpson

    He always has the greatest messages, and so freaking hot!!!

  19. J t $$

    Love this song an looking forward to his tour this Spring...

  20. Ramon LeBlanc Harts

    Still listening in 2019 ( I love this song )!

  21. Sam Kaur

    This song and Never Surrender are my favourite Corey songs.I always thought these two songs were better than his original Sunglasses at night hit.Great singer and very under rated.

  22. lilPopper

    Well deserved Canadian Music Hall Of Fame inductee

  23. James Paulson

    Beautiful song, and I think his best.

  24. enrigue8

    Wonderful music even in 2019 The music today is so pathetic.

  25. Pen Name

    Corey belts one outa the park. Timeless.

  26. maryjane Sutherland

  27. Ramon Hart

    This was the song that made me buy the LP

  28. Brenda duron

    in spite i like so much the sax , I like more the version 2 to this song

    Andy Sanchez

    Yep.. Version 2 is A LOT better.. :):)

  29. Peter Caz

    Way better than the crap they call music today. And I was a metal head fan back in the day. All genres had great songs. Can't say the same for today's music.

  30. Dean Barker

    I just love his voice on any song he sings

  31. Chris Danzell

    Amazing Artist and voice, still rocking Cory...

  32. Derek Vinyard

    little over exaggeration on the lip synching there Corey

  33. maryjane Sutherland

    Gm corey have a good day I will too all my love. From me mjs+cmh😇😎💙🌷🌠

  34. maryjane Sutherland


  35. Andy Sanchez

    Like this song. However, The 7'' version is way way better

  36. Sage Antone

    Same album as Sunglasses at Night, though not nearly as big a hit. I always loved it every bit as much.

  37. maryjane Sutherland

    Hi Corey hart 🌷😇💙👍

  38. Bodine Waterfire

    Help me....this song is looping in my head and I feel crazy.It has been off and on for months. I was never of fan of 80's pop, not even as the 14 year old girl I was when this album was out.I met him 2x in Montreal backstage, and was rude to him, maybe this is my Karma. Is there any medication that can get Cory Hart out of my life?? do I need to apologize to him? to be fair he was rude first.(and I don't mean the music)

  39. Daniel MacKenzie

    My favorite Corey Hart tune !

  40. Mark

    Wish this guy had made more music

  41. maryjane Sutherland


  42. Elizabeth Vance

    I could listen and stare at him all day.

  47. steamyboy69

    Justin Schroh

  48. Yesenia Santamaria


  49. Maxwell Erickson

    its fox

  50. Nancy Smith

    Corey Hart was a master of the judicious use of saxophone in a pop song. Adds just the right bit of oomph and interest.

  51. andie monroe

    Still a great song. Listening in 2018. Always thought Corey was hot! The eyes 👀❤️👍🏻
