No matter the artist's heart
No matter the fight I put up
No matter the sweat or blood
It's never enough, no

M-m-m-m-m-mama called me on the phone
Said, "Baby, where've you been? You ain't been home"
I said "I'm back, now, not for long:
Come tomorrow mornin', I'll be gone"

I said "My heart's true, but it don't belong
The sounds of the city done shattered my home
Packed prescription and a bottle of rum
Leaving tonight, and I ain't coming home!"
I ain't coming home

And no matter the artist's heart
No matter the fight I put up
No matter the sweat or blood
It's never enough, no

No matter the artist's heart
No matter the fight I put up
No matter the sweat or blood
It's never enough, no

My baby, oh my baby, see our time is done
Promises, promises will let me stay who I am
Rum is bitter, and your dreams are numb
Welcome to the time between conception and time

Death and Loss always beat you to the punch
Hope is a joke, forget writing, I'm blunt
Sick of talking, it's just never enough
I'm leaving tonight, and I ain't coming home!
I ain't coming home! No!

And no matter the artist's heart
No matter the fight I put up
No matter the sweat or blood
It's never enough, no

You can't break an artist's heart
You won't kill the fight I put up
So strike at me, press your luck
You're never enough, no

No matter the artist's heart
No matter the fight I put up
No matter the sweat or blood
It's never enough, no

You can't break an artist's heart
You won't kill the fight I put up
So strike at me, press your luck
It's never enough, no!
