Ollie – Good Enough Lyrics

Good Enough By Ollie

Nothing’s ever good enough
Nothing’s ever
What’s another day I spend inside?
Like, everything I do’s a waste of time
Nothing’s ever good enough, no
Nothing’s ever
I can barely find the strength to try
Lately, there’s been too much on my mind

Yeah, wish I could change me
I second guess everything that I’m doing lately
Scared if people gon’ hate me, scared that I let ’em down
I’m not sure what created the way that I’m feeling now
Drowning these expectations, no one sees what I’m facing
Somedays I start to miss writing these songs in Grandma’s basement
Never had limitations, all the time and the patience
Before I started constantly searching for validation
Always hard on myself, more than anyone else
Think the pressure too much, it’s been affectin’ my health
Everybody’s a critic, yeah, go and do it yourself
I’m sure you could do this better but I ain’t looking for help
Put my all in the music, every song that I drop
Hope one day I’ll call the team and tell ’em, “Quit on the spot”
I pray to God that it’s coming, somedays I’m worried it’s not
All I can hear is doubts and people just love to talk, like

Nothing’s ever good enough
Nothing’s ever
What’s another day I spend inside?
Like, everything I do’s a waste of time
Nothing’s ever good enough, no
Nothing’s ever
I can barely find the strength to try
Lately, there’s been too much on my mind

I just can’t be happy with myself
Living on the internet
With myself
Living on the internet
I just can’t be happy with myself
Living on the internet
(I can’t) With myself
Living on the internet

I’m very open with all of my lyrics
It’s when I’m writing down my thoughts that I’m seeing the clearest
I think you wonder more about me than friends I hold dearest
I love this music but it’s also been breaking my spirit
I pour my heart into these songs, it’s out on display
When people judge and quick to tell me what isn’t great
I see the love but all I can focus on’s the hate
They drag me down and try to tell me I need to change
Took a year writing this album, got nervous to rap
‘Cause people said this style of music I keep making won’t last
I back, “Look at the fans, I hope you’re hearing us laugh”
No one respects you ’til you die, I think it’s actually sad
This where I’ve been at
Always feel I’m proving my worth
Overthink negative thoughts, wonder if this gon’ work
Maybe we’re hardest on ourselves ’cause we’re scared to be hurt
Instead of listening to your hate, I just hate myself first, like

Nothing’s ever good enough
Nothing’s ever
What’s another day I spend inside?
Like, everything I do’s a waste of time
Nothing’s ever good enough, no
Nothing’s ever
I can barely find the strength to try
Lately, there’s been too much on my mind

I just can’t be happy with myself
Living on the internet
With myself
Living on the internet
I just can’t be happy with myself
Living on the internet
(I can’t) With myself
Living on the internet
