I'd like to say we gave it a try
I'd like to blame it all on life
Maybe we just weren't right, but that's a lie, that's a lie

And we can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show

'Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

Here we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

If I could change the world overnight
There'd be no such thing as goodbye
You'll be standing right where you were
And we'd get the chance we deserve

Try to deny it as much as you want
But in time our feelings will show

'Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

Here we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

We can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show

'Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough (is never enough, babe)
We were so close to being in love (so close)
If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you, babe
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

Here we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

    The song becomes really meaningful to me. There's the thing that you are almost there, almost in your happy ending. But ariana realized that it is not enough that you are almost on the peak of happy ending. Even though that you are at that 'almost happy ending', there's such thing as goodbye that will arrive.. The song is also simply written but have striking and intimate meaning that couples will surely serves as their guide to have a good relationship.

    yes......to me this song is about two people who really have feelings for each other but neither one of them know that they have feelings for each other but in the end they feelings come out nd it could be to late or the right time but they will never know unless they share there feelings wit each other on the real i can really relate to this song it really reminds me of how me nd my first are #IF YOU HAVE SOMEONE OUT THERE YOU HAVE FEELINGS 4 LET THEM KNOW BECAUSE FEELINGS COULD BE THE SAME

    How will you know if that someone loves you too if you don't let her know? Almost is never enough because even before we could try, we already gave up. We did not dare, we simply surrendered. Though late is better than never, our chance already slipped away. Wondering what if what could have been but that's all to it. We almost knew. We almost have been. Just that, almost. So close yet so far, All what's left are regrets. If only. Then maybe.

    I have a friend, I do not know if he likes me or not but all of my relatives and other friends assume that he likes me. He is always there whenever I need him and is always there to make me smile. I was too scared to fall in love again at that time that I ignored it. One day, he just changed. He seems that he never cared about me at all. That time, I realized I loved him already.
