Enough

Why is it never enough? Why is it never enough?
Because I keep on trying, I keep on trying
But it’s never enough
Yeah, I keep on trying, I keep on trying
But it’s never enough
No, no 

So I keep on giving, I keep on giving
Just a little bit more
Yeah I keep on giving, I keep on giving
Just a little bit more
Yeah, yeah

No baptisms of fire for me
I just burn up in a minute
I thought you’d seen this coming
Don’t throw me in at the deep end
I just sink right to the bottom
Have you got it yet?

It’s fight or flight, but I do neither
I just lay down and play dead
And hope that you’ll leave me alone

Why is it never enough? Why is it never enough?
Because I keep on trying, I keep on trying
But it’s never enough
Yeah, I keep on trying, I keep on trying 
But it’s never enough
No, no 

So sick and tired of people telling me my
H-h-hesitant demeanor
Is something I’ll grow out of
Letting myself get all caught up in their social complications
And regretting it
They tell me I should grin and bear it
So I lie through my teeth and I pay
Through the nose every time

Why is it never enough? Why is it never enough?
Because I keep on trying, I keep on trying
But it’s never enough
Yeah, I keep on trying, I keep on trying 
But it’s never enough
No, no 

So I keep on giving, I keep on giving
Just a little bit more
Yeah I keep on giving, I keep on giving
Just a little bit more
Yeah, yeah
