From Greatest Hits and 14 other releases

Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough is the title of a 1992 rock ballad performed as a duet by the American singers Patty Smyth and Don Henley.

Meaning
The lyrics refer to a past relationship between two people as narrated by the two singers, and their efforts to move on with their respective lives and make sense of the aftermath: There’s a reason why people don’t stay where they are / Baby sometimes love just ain’t enough. In the final chorus, there is a slight lyrical change to this line (“stay where they are” becomes “stay who they are”).
