Aimee Mann – Nothing Is Good Enough lyrics

Once upon a time is how it always goes

But I'll make it brief

What was started out with such excitement

Now I'd gladly end with relief

In what now has become a familiar motif:





That nothing is good enough

For people like you

Who have to have someone take the fall

And something to sabotage--

Determined to lose it all





Critics at their worst could never criticize

The way that you do

No, there's no one else, I find,

To undermine or dash a hope

Quite like you

And you do it so casually, too





Cause nothing is good enough

For people like you

Who have to have someone take the fall

And something to sabotage--

Determined to lose it all





Ladies and gentlemen--

Here's exhibit a

Didn't I try again?

And did the effort pay?

Wouldn't a smarter man

Simply walk away?





It doesn't really help that you can never say

What you're looking for

But you'll know it when you hear it,

Know it when you see it walk through the door

So you say--

So you've said many times before





But nothing is good enough

For people like you

Who have to have someone take the fall

And something to sabotage--

Determined to lose it all
