lyrics

Oh baby, I can't promise
I'll give you what you want cuz
What you want is something
I can't be

I've tried my best, I swear it
You just don't want to hear it
Even though you know deep down
It's true

But if it’s never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days

I don’t know what to do
Do I keep on fighting for you
Leaving my pride over by the door

Or do I just cut my losses,
Say “c’est la vie” and move on to
Another day searching for someone new

But if it's me you want
I'll give you all of my heart
A thousand times over
Til I can’t anymore

I'll give you more of myself
Than there is to give
With the world in my hands
I’d give it all, and still it’s

Never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days

But if it’s never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days
