"Less" as written by and Ben Harper....
I could give you more, but you still wouldn't be happy
I could give all you need, but you still wouldn't be satisfied
I could give to our poor
Now what good would that be?
You'd shake hands with Jesus
And you still would not believe

If you're happy with nothing you'll be so very happy with me
The less you expect the more you'll be pleased
The more you'll be pleased

I could change your mind, but what would you really be thinking
I'd show you a sign, but you'd just pass it on by
I could hold your hand but then we'd both be sinking
The problem with the world is everyone's not just like you

If you're happy with nothing you'll be so very happy with me
The less you expect the more you'll be pleased
The more you'll be pleased

If you're happy with nothing you'll be so very happy with me
If you're happy with nothing you'll be so very happy with me
If you're happy with nothing you'll be so very happy with me...
So happy with nothing, so happy with me

    General CommentI think its talking about someone who thinks they are better than the person in the song, and that they don't realise that the person in the song is the person they need, so they treat them like nothing (hence the chorus)...
