Didn't Break It Enough
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(You didn't break it enough)
(You didn't break it enough)

You could've had the decency to do the job properly
'Cause now, you're on my mind more than I care to admit (you didn't break it enough)
And now, I don't have the luxury
Of cutting you off and going cold turkey
And now, I'm joining up the dots
But they don't fit (you didn't break it enough)
At all 'cause

If my heart is broken
Why can it still love you?
Why can it still want you?
Why does it still love you?
If it's broken
Why the hell does it want you still?
When you broke it, you
You didn't break it enough

In love, in love
You still, you didn't break it enough
You, you didn't break it enough

They ask me how I'm doing
And I curse your name
Say I'm better without you
And then, I realize that's not really what they asked (you didn't break it enough)
But either way, I'm passionate
I hate you 'cause I hate the fact
That I still miss you after all of that (you didn't break it enough)
So tell me

If my heart is broken
Why can it still love you?
Why can it still want you?
Why does it still love you?
If it's broken
Why the hell does it want you still?
When you broke it, you
You didn't break it enough

In love, in love
You still, you didn't break it enough
You, you didn't break it enough
In love, in love
You still, you didn't break it enough
You, you didn't break it enough

So if my heart is broken
Why can it still love you?
Why does it still want you?
Why does it still love you?
If it's broken
Why the hell does it want you still?
When you broke it, you
You didn't break it enough

In love, in love
You still, you didn't break it enough
You, you didn't break it enough
In love, in love




You still, you didn't break it enough
You, you didn't break it enough

Overall Meaning

Griff's song "Didn't Break It Enough" expresses the aftermath of a heartbreak that was not enough to completely sever the singer's emotional ties to their former lover. The chorus of the song highlights this confusion the singer feels, asking why, if their heart is broken, does it still love and want the person who caused the pain. The title phrase "You didn't break it enough" serves as a biting memento to the failed attempt at purging their heart of these emotions.


Throughout the verses, Griff acknowledges the difficulty of moving on when the heart is still tethered to the one who hurt it. In the first verse, the singer confronts their ex-lover, claiming that they should have done a better job breaking the heart so as to avoid the ongoing emotional turmoil. The second verse deals more with the singer's internal struggle, questioning why their heart still longs for a person who caused it so much pain. The singer curses their ex's name when asked how they're doing and admits that they still miss them, despite knowing that they would be better off without them.


Overall, "Didn't Break It Enough" portrays a complicated and relatable aftermath of heartbreak, where emotions and logic seem to conflict. The song is a testament to the power of love and its ability to endure even in the midst of heartache.
