Let That Be Enough (Model Behavior) Lyrics

Wish I had what I needed
To be on my own
Cause I feel so defeated
And I’m feeling alone
And it all seems so helpless
And I have no plans
I’m a plane in the sunset
With no where to land
And all I see
It could never make me happy
And all...

    The singer has reached a new low in his life and doesn't know how to deal with it. Sorta reminds me of a college student away at a four year school, whose struggling to make it on his own and is asking God for a sign that he's there with him.
    I play this sometimes just to appreciate where I'm at and what I have.

    He isn't necessarily talking to god, the you could be a loved one too. The big point is saying all we need is love. People always want money and toys but love is what makes true happiness. Let that be enough.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    The song is a simple song about religion of course. It is interesting in that he says how lost and alone he feels, going through life aimlessly. All he needs is to know that someone loves him and hears him, when he has problems, and "let that be enough". I think these are great lyrics that suggests a simple and small relationship with god (which is lacking in today's churches). In fact, I think this song is hinting at a purely personal relationship with god, which does not involve church and the corrupt people and ideas that it breeds.

    Also, you could interpret this song as merely needing someone or a small group of people to love and support you, and just knowing that they are in your life, "let that be enough". Aka something to live for.
