Almost Doesn't Count

Almost made you love me, almost made you cry
Almost made you happy, baby, didn't I, didn't I?
You almost had me thinkin' you were turned around
But everybody knows, almost doesn't count

Almost heard you saying you were finally free
What was always missing for you, babe, you found it in me
But you can't get to heaven half off the ground
Everybody knows, almost doesn't count

I can't keep lovin' you one foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on tryin' if you're looking for more
Than all that I could give you than what you came here for

Gotta find somebody not afraid to let go
Want a no-doubt be-there kind of girl, you came real close
But every time you built me up you only let me down
And everybody knows, almost doesn't count

I can't keep lovin' you one foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on tryin' if you're looking for more
Than all that I could give you than what you came here for

Maybe you'll be sorry, maybe you'll be cold
Maybe you'll come runnin' back from the cruel, cruel world
You almost convince me, you're gonna stick around
But everybody knows, almost doesn't count

Maybe I'll be here, maybe I'll see you 'round
That's the way it goes, almost doesn't count
