lyrics

Find me on the playground
in a holy headlock
I don't have a friend in sight
My eyes have a death glow
cause you stole my Yu-Gi-Oh
I never learned how to fight

Who am I?

I don't speak your language
but I know a swear word
just by the way it's said
And all of your hatred
once translated
hurt, and it hurt real bad

Who am I?

I feel like the baby
from "Look Homeward, Angel"
I can't say a word
With my middle-school jeans on
and my Tooth And Nail theme song
I conjugate my verbs

Who am I?
Who was I?
Who will I?
Who am I?

My grades go backwards
I draw diamonds
life outside's a wrench
And me at fourteen
wonders if he'd succeed
talking girls into bed in french

Who am I?

So I walk the playground
reading "Antigone"
singing to girls in white
The one that wants to see me
is far too clingy
but I still never learned how to fight

Who am I?

I sit in the dark
til my eyes adjust
and pretend it's past midnight
and I'm still up
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

I watch as the rain
makes reflections outside
it looks like tinsel
that's been stripped and tied
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

It was summer this morning
but it's winter tonight
and these nine chords
are saving my life
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

I reread all I wrote you
when I was sixteen
where I tried hard to sound impressive
but just came across mean
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

I cried through September
like I cried through June
I've a present premonition
that my past is soon
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

It may sound like there's a problem
but everything's fine
I just wanna be alone
with “You Are My Sunshine”
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

I was reading "Pretty Deadly"
when I overheard sex
it's hard not to listen
or feel curious
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

You think about the redhead
you crossed on the stairs
give it two months
and you'll have forgotten you cared
She's not enough for me
she's not enough

I remembered when we argued
about self-harm
how I used the needle of a compass
to draw maps on my arms
It's not enough for me
it's not enough

This has been a lot of verses
but I could always write more
I don't know why
I don't get bored singing:
“it's not enough for me”
It's not enough
