Never Quite Good Enough Is Quite Good Enough For Me - Poem by Susan Sparks

Verse One:

Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
It's not my damn fault that he was abused
Blaming me's no damn excuse
Now Mr. Right gone Mr. Horribly Wrong is finally gone for good
And it just feels so damn good to finally be free.


Refrain:

Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
Now Mr. Right gone Mr. Horribly Wrong
Is finally gone for Eternity
And now I'm quite glad to be
Just quite good enough for me.


Verse Two:

Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
'You can't eat this'
'You can't wear that'
'You're disgustingly fat'
'I'm sick of this and that'
Now Mr. No Damn Good is finally gone for good
And it feels so good to be just quite good enough for me.


Repeat refrain:


Verse Three:

Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
It'll take some time for the scars to heal
But for now it feels so good to finally feel
That never quite good enough it quite good enough for me.


Repeat refrain:


Verse Four:

Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
Mr. No Damn Good couldn't beat me into conformity.
Now Mr. Right gone Mr. Horribly Wrong is finally gone
There'll be no more sad songs sung for me.
And now it finally feels so damn good to be just me.


Repeat Refrain: {Finale'}

    Never quite good enough is quite good enough for me.
    'You can't eat this'
    'You can't wear that'
    'You're disgustingly fat'
    'I'm sick of this and that'
    Now Mr. No Damn Good is finally gone for good
    And it feels so good to be just quite good enough for me.

    For me, too. (Report) Reply
