Does Not Suffice

Album: Have One On Me (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song the narrator is packing to permanently leave a lover's house. When asked during an interview with The Observer, Newsom wouldn't say who this break-up song is about, but hinted heavily. She said: "There were a few songs on the record that came to me quickly before I had a chance to stop them, and that was one. The mood of that song is the mood I was in."
