I know what's coming
You've taken me down this road before
Something's missing
Too many times you've let me know
I am trying to make it the way it used to be
Back when all you said that you'd need was the best of me

If I gave you the ocean
You would ask for the sun
But if I gave you that sunlight
You would say it's not what you want
And I give, and I give, and I give
But I don't give up
There was a time
When my best was good enough

Sometimes I wish I could walk away and not think twice
I can't get past the thought of you in someone else's life
Can I keep you if I try?
Can I make it right?

If I gave you the ocean
You would ask for the sun
But if I gave you that sunlight
You would say it's not what you want
And I give, and I give, and I give
But I don't give up
There was a time
When my best was good enough

Can I keep you if I try?
Can I make it right?

If I gave you the ocean
You would ask for the sun
But if I gave you that sunlight
You would say it's not what you want
And I give, and I give, and I give
But I don't give up
There was a time
When my best was good enough

There was a time
When my best was good enough

There was a time
When my best was good enough

    I feel as though the singer is feeling like nothing he does is enough to make his girlfriend happy, he keeps trying, but when he gives her what she wants, it's not enough.. She still wants more. I can relate to that i just got out of a relationship that was like this. She claimed she "wasn't materialistic" and as long as she had me she was good... But i saw that change... She wanted this, she wanted that.. And if i couldn't get it right away, she never let me live it down.. And when i did get it, she wanted something else... It's frustrating
