  • Clinging to love, escape a father and mother
    She offers some other way out of the hole
    She's overachieving, chasing her dreams
    And coming down slowly, yeah, it's out of control

    (Ah) Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
    Flash your teeth, though the inside hurts
    (Ah) it's time to glow, lose your way
    To make you feel better just because you feel worse

    All of the books and all in a boat and
    Nowhere to run, God, this is out of control
    You wait for something to undo these feelings
    Waiting and waiting but it's out of control

    (Ah) Scrap the blues, if the blues don't work
    Flash your teeth, though the inside hurts
    (Ah) it's time to glow, lose your way
    To make you feel better just because you feel worse

    (Ah)
    (Ah)
    It never is enough
    No, it never is enough
    It never is enough
    No, it never is enough Writer/s: Ellen Ciara Rowsell, Joel Donald Scott Amey, Jonathan David Oddie, Theodore Joseph Ellis
