I bought you everything that you asked for,
Everything but you wanted more,
I guess it wasn't quite enough.
I did everything that you asked me to,
Everything that I could do,
I guess it wasn't quite enough.
I should have acted like a hopeless pessimist,
'cause I know that you're a sucker for that type,
And if I told you I was gonna kill myself,
Maybe then you'd comfort me and hold me tight.
Will I ever learn?
I took you every place that you wanted to go,
Every single place that I know,
I guess it wasn't quite enough.
I told you everything that you wanted to hear,
I said I loved you in your ear,
I guess it wasn't quite enough.
(Chorus)
No matter what I do
I'll never be with you
And if it ends that way
I guess I'll be okay
