My Best Was Never Good Enough
Bruce Springsteen Lyrics


Every cloud has a silver lining, every dog has his day
She said, "Now don't say nothin'
If you don't have something nice to say."
The tough, now they get going, when the going gets tough
But for you my best was never good enough

"Now don't try for a home run, baby
If you can get the job done with a hit"
Remember, "A quitter never wins and a winner never quits"
"The sun don't shine on a sleepin' dog's ass"
And all the rest of that stuff
But for you my best was never good enough

"If God gives you nothin' but lemons, then you make some lemonade"
"The early bird catches the fuckin' worm,
Rome wasn't built in a day"

"Now life's like a box of chocolates,
You never know what you're going to get"
"Stupid is as stupid does and all the rest of that shit"

Come'on pretty baby, call my bluff
'Cause for you my best was never good enough

Lyrics:


"Every cloud has a silver lining, every dog has his day."
She said "Now don't stay nothin'
If you don't have something nice to say
The tough now they get going when the going gets tough."
But for you my best was never good enough

"Now don't try for a home run baby
If you can get the job done with a hit
Remember a quitter never wins
And a winner never quits
The sun don't shine on a sleepin' dog's ass."
And all the rest of that stuff
But for you my best was never good enough

"If God gives you nothin' but lemons then you make some lemonade
The early bird catches the fuckin' worm, Rome wasn't built in a day
Now life's like a box of chocolates
You never know what you're going to get
Stupid is as stupid does" and all the rest of that shit
Come on pretty baby call my bluff
'Cause for you my best was never good enough

One of Bruce's funniest songs.

New Damage

The theme of my life.

Juan Rodriguez

I'm going through a transition where I'm ready to leave my gf. This hits home because this is the best I've ever been,but there's too much collateral damage. Sometimes you can find the best person for you in life, but neither of you are ready. Not heartbroken, but truly defeated. Theres a huge difference between the two.

MannBrothersFilms

The Boss.

The Iceman

My favorite song on The Ghost Of Tom Joad.

johnnyM809

Masterpiece of an album in my opinion. Across the Border for me is the best song on the record.

Mike Reiss

I had this on cassette tape a long time ago and to be honest it's the only song I remember after all these years aside from the title track.

Persona Non Grata

Bruce is Mandela Effected-'Life WAS like a box of chocolates'

James Swigart

Sounds a lot like Dylan
