It's not enough
Whatever you give

A little bit more than you always need
A little more man and a little more seed

It's not enough, it's not enough
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
Whatever I give
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)

I gave you cash, I gave you love
All that I heard was, "It's not enough"
I worked so hard to get so tough
Whatever I give, it never feels like enough, not enough

It's not enough, it's not enough
Whatever I give
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)

When I'm on my knees, I keep taking your stuff
You make sure that I know it'll never be enough
You said you'd go as far as turn to my friend
Who once warned me of you, said you'd hasten my end

He'll choose you over me because I have lent
Every ounce of my juice, my essence is spent
You'll always want a little more pink
I always need a little more ink, it's not enough

(It's not enough, it's not enough)
No, it's never enough
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)
Whatever I give

However I praise, however I puff
Though you may smile, it won't be enough
But in the end when I start to bluff
The lift's going down and I start actin' too tough, it's not enough

(It's not enough, it's not enough)
Whatever I give, it's not enough
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)

I'll find someone else to finish filling me up
I'll smile and admit you were never quite enough
Like Brigitte Bardot in Godard's Les Mepris
I can't love you enough to make you complete

You appear in my dreams with some new cortier
You need me there to see
What you need to convey, it's not enough

(It's not enough, it's not enough)
No, no, it's not enough
(It's not enough, it's not enough)

No hysterical scene
You ain't never played rough
I was one who can scream
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
But it won't be enough
(It's not enough, it's not enough)

No, it's ever enough
It's never enough

Whatever I give
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
Whatever I give
(It's not enough, not enough)
It'll never be enough of you, baby
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
No, no
(It's not enough, it's not enough)

I'll never hold you
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
How can I scold you?
(Whatever you give, never be enough)
Whatever I give
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
(Whatever you give, never be enough)
