Almost Doesn't Count

Almost made you love me,
Almost made you cry,
Almost made you happy,
But baby at least I tried,

Almost made me believe you,
After all the times you lied,
Almost made me leave you,
Thought you were gonna die,

But everybody knows,
That almost doesn't count,
Everytime you built me up,
You just brought me down,

Almost had you thinking,
That I was turned around,
Almost had the pieces,
Picked up off the ground,

I can't keep loving you,
With one foot out the door,
I feel a funny hesitation,
Of a heart that's never really sure,

But everybody knows,
That almost doesn't count,
Everytime you built me up,
You just brought me down,

Can't keep on trying,
If you're looking for more,
Than all that I can give you,
Than what you came here for,

Gonne find me somebody,
Not afraid to let go,
A 'no-doubt-be-there' kinda man,
You came real close,

But everybody knows,
That almost doesn't count,
Everytime you built me up,
You just brought me down,

Maybe you'll be sorry,
Maybe you'll be cold,
Maybe you'll come running back,
From the cruel, cruel world,

Almost convinced me,
You're gonna stick around,
But everybody knows,
Almost doesn't count
