Creative Brief

Too often, today people are expecting everything to be perfect,  No room for error or imperfections.  I am challenged with this at times when writing lyrics.  Trying to rewrite and rewrite until I think they are perfect in my own mind.  But, that original inspiration and natural flow of the words can many times deliver a more genuine and believable story and rhythm that gets scrubbed away with all the editing and rewriting.  These lyrics ask that question.  

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore (Lyrics by Mitchel Miller)

Verse 1:

They say that’ll never do

What’s this ol’ world coming to

Now that everyone’s keepin’ score

Caught up in the small stuff

So, the edges are a little rough

Shiny things can still be rotten to the core

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?



When did strong become weak?

When did loud become meek?

When did right become wrong?

When did near become long gone?

What’s in it for them and nothing more

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?

Verse 2:

Makin’ mountains out of hills

Ain’t nothin’ if it’s not fit to kill

They know what they’re in it for

Everyone’s huntin’ for the edge

A place to drive a massive wedge

Not sure I can’t take it all anymore

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?


Verse 3:

Everyone’s splittin’ hairs

One step short won’t get you there

Their opinion is hard to ignore

They’re just nit pickers

And no-account tire kickers

Somebody show them to the door

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?


What’s in it for them and nothing more

Why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?

Tell me, why Isn’t Good Enough Enough Anymore?
