Track Name: Never Enough
Nothing comes apart
Like a mother’s good heart
When her boy’s been living rough
She lit another candle for his soul
But it was never enough

She came here looking for peace
In all her worry and grief
Calling up to heaven
And hoping for a little relief

She bowed her head
Like the good book said
Trying hard to settle up
She said another prayer to keep him safe
But it was never enough

She came here looking for peace
In all her worry and grief
Calling up to heaven
And hoping for a little relief

But those words can’t bury the beast
He’s gonna come out and bare his teeth
Calling up to heaven
And hoping for a little release

She cried “Oh won’t you put me back together
I know that I’ve been gone a long time
I know I’m gonna have to do better
Lord, won’t you save my child”

If the good lord knows
Everything that goes on
He’s gonna call her bluff
She put another dollar in the bowl
But it was never enough

She came here looking for peace
In all her worry and grief
Calling up to heaven
And hoping for a little relief

But those words can’t bury the beast
He’s gonna come out and bare his teeth
Calling up to heaven
And hoping for a little release
