Almost Is Never Enough è un duetto pop tra Ariana Grande e Nathan Sykes, membro dei The Wanted. È stato rilasciato come singolo promozionale un giorno prima del debutto del film Shadowhunters - Città di ossa. La canzone è stata ben accolta dalla critica, con la maggior parte dei critici che lodano l'estensione vocale e il controllo di Ariana. La canzone ha debuttato alla posizione 85 sulla classifica on the Billboard Hot 100 ed è arrivata infine all'82° posizione. Una versione più lunga è stata inclusa nell'album di debutto di Ariana, Yours Truly.

Dietro le quinte Modifica

Almost Is Never Enough è stata scritta da Ariana Grande, Harmony Samuels, Carmen Reece, Al Sherrod Lambert, Olaniyi-Akinpelu, e il suo produttore, Moses Samuels. Ariana aveva originalmente registrato Almost Is Never Enough come ballata da solista per il suo album. Circa una settimana più tardi, ha ricevuto un'email dal suo manager Scooter Braun, quest' ultimo è anche il manager di Nathan Sykes (membro dei The Wanted). Nell'email era allegata una nuova versione della canzone che includeva alcune parti cantate da Sykes. Ariana ha adorato la nuova versione ed ha deciso di inserirla nel suo album.[1]

Testo Modifica

I'd like to say we gave it a try
I'd like to blame it all on life
Maybe we just weren’t right, but that’s a lie, that’s a lie

And we can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show
Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is, everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart, but right here in each other's arms
And we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

If I could change the world overnight
There'd be no such thing as goodbye
You'll be standing right where you were
We'd get the chance we deserve

Try to deny it as much as you want
But in time our feelings will show
Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is, everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart, but right here in each other's arms
And we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

Oh, oh, baby
You know, you know, baby
Almost is never enough, baby (baby, baby, baby)
You know... I...

And we can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show
Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
Truth is, everyone knows that

Almost, almost is never enough (It's never enough, baby!)
(We were close to being in love) So close to being in love (So close)
If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you (baby)
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart, but right here in each other's arms
And we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

Oh... oh, baby... (Almost)
You know... you know, baby
Almost is never enough, baby (Never)
You know... I...

I'd like to say we gave it a try
I'd like to blame it all on life
Maybe we just weren't right, but that's a lie, that's a lie

And we can deny it as much as we want
But in time our feelings will show
Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each other's arms
And we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

If I could change the world overnight
There'd be no such thing as goodbye
You'd be standing right where you were
And we'd get the chance we deserve

Try to deny it as much as you want
But in time our feelings will show
Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough (is never enough, babe)
We were so close to being in love (so close)
If I would have known that you wanted me the way I wanted you, babe
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each other's arms
And we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough
