Wasis Diop - Everything (is never quite enough)

Moments take so very long… who has time to fear it?
Trust is set on precedent—why should it be I who bleeds?
Giving you a little less, forsaking what I need.
Everything is never quite enough.

Let machinery fake my face… who has time to chase?
Digital is where it is; love can always be replaced.
Welcome to my consciousness, welcome to our race.
Everything is never quite enough.

Can’t see my face…what are you thinking?
Fill in the space, please. Oh let me hear you..

Sterilized behind these gates, locked behind the green.
Even if I had you here, what we had was never clear.
No more words to say to you, no more thoughts appear.

Life was taking way too long…who had breath to waste?
Tired of disappointing you; bored with everything I do.
Every day there’s less of you. Me, I’ve been erased.

These lyrics are by Wasis Diop, from Everything (is never quite enough). Posted at 11:19pm on 21 July 2006.

    I too am looking for the french being sung. Its strange but all the websites says its the Wasis Diop lyrics but none of them give the lyrics actually sung by Diop.

  4. If you/anyone knows the French lyrics, I will happily post them. But I haven’t found them yet either.
