That Would Be Enough is the 17th song of Act One of the musical Hamilton.

After Alexander is sent home by General Washington, Eliza reveals that she had sent for him and that she was pregnant with their first child. Hamilton, unsure of himself, states that the war is not done and she should have told him beforehand. Eliza assures him that she asked for his return because of her love for him and begs him to "let her be part of his narrative".

LyricsEdit

[ELIZA]
Look around, look around
At how lucky we are to be alive right now
Look around, look around...

[HAMILTON]
How long have you known?

[ELIZA]
A month or so

[HAMILTON]
Eliza, you should have told me

[ELIZA]
I wrote to the General a month ago

[HAMILTON]
No

[ELIZA]
I begged him to send you home

[HAMILTON]
You should have told me

[ELIZA]
I'm not sorry


[ELIZA]
I knew you'd fight until the war was done
But you deserve a chance to meet your son

Look around, look around, at how lucky we are
To be alive right now


[HAMILTON]
The war's not done


[HAMILTON]
Will you relish being a poor man's wife
Unable to provide for your life?

[ELIZA]
I relish being your wife
Look around, look around...

Look at where you are
Look at where you started
That fact that you're alive is a miracle
To stay alive, that would be enough

And if your child
Shares a fraction of your smile
Or a fragment of your mind
Look out, world, that would be enough

I don't pretend to know
The challenges you're facing
The world your keep erasing and creating in your mind

But I'm not afraid
I know who I married
So long as you come home at the end of the day
That would be enough

We don't need a legacy
We don't need money
If I could grant you peace of mind
If you could let me inside your heart...

Oh, let me be part of the narrative
In the story they will write someday
Let this moment be the first chapter:
Where you decide to stay
And I could be enough
And we could be enough
That would be enough
