Never Enough is the eighth track on Made in the A.M. It was released globally on November 13, 2015.

Lyrically, the song is about partying and having sex.

Background

The song was written by Niall, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan and Jamie Scott. It was one of the first tracks to surface from the Made In The A.M. recording sessions, as it was partially leaked in July.

Niall has said the song is his favorite because "I just love it. I don’t even know why I like it, just everything about it is spot on for me" and "it's really fun and different from anything we've done before."[1] He elaborated on how the song was written, stating “It was kind of a new sound...and I had never really written in that sound, either. When you hear the song you’ll know what I mean. It’s very different. I was happy with the way we had written it, and the way we came about it. We were just on the piano one night in Julian [Bunetta, writer-producer]’s house, and we were sitting around and having a couple of beers and then it just kinda popped up on the piano and it’s now played by trumpets. So, when things like that happen, you feel proud.”[2]

Julian Bunetta talked to Rolling Stone about the track, stating "'Never Enough' had an interesting life. It has a Stevie Wonder horn riff, and we've spent many nights in hotel rooms dancing to that one."[3]

Lyrics

[Liam]'
Wanna pull an all nighter
And get into something we'll never forget
Wanna stay up and party
The weekend away and not know when to quit
Wanna drive in the night to the end of the earth
And go over the edge
Wanna wake up with you
And say baby let's do it all over again

[Niall]
Lips so good I forget my name
I swear I could give you everything

[All]
I don't need my love
You can take it, you can take it, take it
I don't need my heart
You can break it, you can break it, break it
I just can't get too much of you, baby
It's never, it's never enough, never enough
It's never enough, never enough
Come on
Come on

[Niall]
Wanna pull an all nighter
And get into something we'll never forget
Wanna stay up and party
The weekend away and not know when to quit
Wanna drive in the night to the end of the earth
And go over the edge
Wanna wake up with you
And say baby let's do it all over again

[Louis]
Lips so good I forget my name
I swear I could give you everything

[All]
I don't need my love
You can take it, you can take it, take it
I don't need my heart
You can break it, you can break it, break it
I just can't get too much of you, baby
It's never, it's never enough, never enough
It's never enough, never enough
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on

[Bridge]
Too much is never enough
Too much is never enough
Too much is never enough
Too much
Too much is never enough
Too much is never enough
Too much is never enough
Too much is never enough
Never enough, never enough
Never enough, never enough

[All]
I don't need my love
You can take it, you can take it, take it
I don't need my heart
You can break it, you can break it, break it
I just can't get too much of you, baby
It's never, it's never enough, never enough
It's never enough, never enough
I don't need my love
You can take it, you can take it, take it
I don't need my heart
You can break it, you can break it, break it
I just can't get too much of you, baby
It's never, it's never enough, never enough
It's never enough, never enough
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on

Reception

"Never Enough" received critical acclaim, with many dubbing it the standout track of the album. USA Today said "A.M. hits its stride with the irresistible Never Enough, which sounds like a funk, doo-wop and '80s hair metal song all rolled into one"[4].
