|Am7               |G   Dsus2/F#  |
   It's not enough

|Am7               |G   Dsus2/F#  |
   Whatever you give

[verse]
|Am7                 |G          Dsus2/F#  |
   A little bit more, you always need

| Am7                     |G           Dsus2/F#  |
   A little more man and a little more seed

[chorus]
         |Am7             |G     Dsus2/F#
It's not enough, it's not enough
    (It's not enough   not enough)
          |Am7                       |G      Dsus2/F#   |
Whatever I give 
             (Whatever you give, it's never enough)


|Dm               |Dm                  | 
   I gave you cash,   I gave you love
|Dm                   |Dm
   All that I heard was, "It's not enough"

|Am7                  |G       Dsus2/F#     |
    I work so hard, it gets so tough
|Am7                      |G          Dsus2/F#  
    Whatever I give never feels like enough

It's not enough
It's not enough
Whatever I give
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)

    |Dm                    |Dm
When I'm on my knees I keep taking your stuff
    |Dm                            |Dm
Make sure that you know it's never enough

[bridge]
   |C                         |F
You said you'd go as far as to turn to my friend
        |C                           |F
Who once warned me of you, said you'd hasten my end
            |C            |F
He'll choose you over me because I have lent
     |C                    |F
Every ounce of my juice, my essence is spent

You'll always want a little more pink
I'll always need a little more ink

It's not enough
It's never enough
Whatever I give
It's never enough

However I praise, however I puff
Though you may smile, it won't be enough

Right at the end when I start to bluff
An' the lift's going down an' I start acting tough

It's not enough
Whatever I give
(Whatever you give, it's never enough)

I'll find someone else to finish filling me up
I'll smile and admit you were never quite enough

Like Brigitte Bardot in Godard's Les Mepris
I can't love you enough to make you complete
You appear in my dreams with some new courtier
You need me there to see what you need to convey

It's not enough
No, it's not enough
No hysterical scene
You will never play rough

I'm the one who will scream
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
But it won't be enough

It's never enough
It's never enough

It's not enough
It's not enough
Whatever I give
(It's not enough, it's not enough)
Whatever I give
It'll never be enough

Ooh, I'll never hold you
How can I scold you?

(It's not enough)
(It's not enough)
(Whatever I give, it'll never be enough)
