Almost Doesn't Count
Brandy Lyrics


Ohh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Almost made you love me
Almost made you cry
Almost made you happy, babe
Didn't I? Didn't I?
You almost had me thinking
You were turned around
But everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

Almost heard you saying
You were finally free
What was always missing for you, babe
You found it in me
But you can't get to Heaven
Half off the ground
Everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

I can't keep on loving you
One foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation
Of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on trying
If you're looking for more
Than all that I could give you
Than what you came here for

Gonna find me somebody
Not afraid to let go
Want a no-doubt-be-there kind of man
You came real close
But every time you built me up
You only let me down
But everybody knows (everybody knows)
Almost doesn't count (almost doesn't count)

(Hey) Ohh
(Hey) Ooh, everybody knows
(Hey) Yeah, yeah, yeah
(Hey-yeah)
(Hey) Can't keep on, baby
(Hey) Can't keep on trying
Everybody knows (everybody knows)
Almost doesn't count

(I can't keep on)
I can't keep on loving (woo-woo) you
One foot outside the door
(I) I hear a funny hesitation (ooh)
Of a heart that's never (never) really sure
Can't keep on trying (no no)
If you're looking for more
Than all that I could give you
Than what you came here for

Maybe you'll be sorry
Maybe you'll be cold
Maybe you'll come running back, babe
From the cruel, cruel world
Almost convinced me
You're gonna stick around
But everybody knows (everybody knows)
Almost doesn't count

So maybe I'll be here
Maybe I'll see you around
That's the way it goes
Almost doesn't count

[Verse 1]
Almost made you love me, almost made you cry
Almost made you happy, baby, didn't I, didn't I?
You almost had me thinking you were turned around
But everybody knows, almost doesn't count
Almost heard you saying you were finally free
What was always missing for you, babe, you found it in me
But, you can't get to heaven half off the ground
Everybody knows, almost doesn't count


[Chorus]
I can't keep on loving you one foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on trying if you're looking for more, than all that
I can give you than what you came here for


[Verse 2]
Gonna find me somebody not afraid to let go
Want a no doubt, be there kind of man - you came real close
But every time you built me up, you only let me down
But everybody knows, almost doesn't count


[Bridge]
Hey, hey (everybody knows)
Hey, hey hey
I can't keep on baby, can't keep on trying
Everybody knows, almost doesn't count


[Chorus]
I can't keep on loving you one foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on trying if you're looking for more, than all that
I can give you than what you came here for


[Verse 3]
Maybe you'll be sorry, maybe you'll be cold
Maybe you'll come running back, babe, from the cruel, cruel world
Almost convinced me you're gonna stick around
But everybody know, almost doesn't count


[Outro]
So maybe I'll be here, maybe I'll see you around
That's the way it goes, almost doesn't count

Fun fact: the writers originally wrote this as a country song but Brandy transformed it into an R&B classic. She is THE vocal bible legend!

Voice of an Angel!

Joseph Walker

Makes sense because the song structure is country. Very cool 👌🏽

Andrew Bloom

@Jayson T He also recorded a country version of Brian McKnight's "Back at One".

Her braids were everything back then

Use to painfully get mines done. However hearing Brandy wearing lace front we knew nothing about back then-yikes!

It was a wig.

Life Matters with Stephanie

@Illicisa Jones I’m pretty sure she was wearing braided wigs back then
