Not Enough
Van Halen (Balance)

Transcribed by: Bob Brockman (

Intro (bogus, but just in case a piano isn't handy... :-)

                 C      Em    F           Dm     Am     Bb

                 Bb      F     C           Dm     Am     Bb     F   C

Two-fingered piano riff that leads into most verses:

        This version is        Something like this sounds
        pretty much like       not as 'thin' for one
        the piano part...      guitar playing alone...

                    F             C   G   F
        e|----------1---|     |-----------1---|
        B|--5-6-3-1-1---|     |---5-6-3---1---|
        G|--5-7-4-2-2---|     |---5---4-5-2---|
        D|----------3---|     |---5---5---3---|
        A|----------3---|     |---3---5---3---|
        E|----------1---|     |-------3---1---|

Verse 1
        F           G           C      C/G    F
        to love somebody naturally
        to love somebody faithfully
        to love somebody equally
           Em   Am        Em   F           G   C
        is not enough, is not enough, it's not enough

Verse 2
        F           G          C       C/G   F
        to love somebody secretly (and never touch)
        to love somebody honestly (and always trust)
        F           G          C       Em     Am
        to love somebody tenderly, the tender touch
             Em   Dm          G   Am
        it's not enough, it's not enough

(Lead-in to chorus):

            Am            Bb

        Bb   C             F
        love hurts you sometime
        Bb          C       F
        it's not so easy to find, no
        Bb        C    F
        searchin' everywhere
            Am       Bb          C           Dsus2
        you turn and swear, it's always been there

Verse 3:
        F           G           C       C/G    F
        to love somebody foolishly (can happen once)
        to love somebody hopelessly (it hurts so much)
        to love somebody equally
           Em   Am        Em   Dm          G    Am
        is not enough, is not enough, it's not enough

        Bb   C              F
        love takes a little time
        Bb          C       F
        it's not so easy to find, no
        Bb        C    F          Am       Bb
        searchin' everywhere, you turn and swear
              C           Dm     Em  F  G     A5 Bb    A
        she's always been there         standin' there

        Dm Em F G A-Bb A     (2x)
        Dm Em F G Asus4 A

Verse (sung over piano intro):

                  C          Em   F
        and if it don't come easily
        Dm            Am      Bb
        one thing you must believe
                Bb          F        C
        you can always have trust in me
                   Dm         Am     Bb
        because my heart will always be
              F     C
        yours honestly

              Bb   C         F
        yeah, love hurts you sometimes
        Bb     C       F
        not so easy to find, no
        Bb        C    F           Am       Bb
        searchin' everywhere, then turn and swear
             C           F      C        Bb
        it's always been there, standin' there

        Bb   C         F
        love hurts you sometimes
        Bb  C               F
        not yours, it's not mine, no
        Bb     C       F
        love's only to share
        Am       Bb          C    F               Bb
        turn and swear, it's everywhere, standin' there
                    C           Bb     C   F
        'cause it's always been there

About the artist behind Not Enough Tab:

Van Halen is an American hard rock band formed in Pasadena, California in 1972. They enjoyed success from the release of their self titled debut album in 1978. As of 2007 Van Halen has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide[2] and have had the most number one hits on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.[3] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Van Halen is the 19th best selling band/artist of all time with sales of over 56 million albums in the USA[4] and is one of five rock bands that have had two albums sell more than 10 million copies in the USA.

In addition to being recognized for quality and success, the band is known for the drama surrounding the exits of former members. The (multiple) exits of singers Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth were surrounded in controversy and mass press coverage with various contrasting press statements between them and the band. More recently, founding bassist Michael Anthony was kicked out of the band for controversial reasons. Following their 2004 concert tour the band was on a hiatus from the public until September 2006, new bassist Wolfgang Van Halen's place was confirmed and Roth-reunion rumours began to re-surface coinciding with the band's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on March 12, 2007.[5] After years of speculation, Van Halen began a tour with Roth in late 2007 across North America, which has been extended into 2008. An album is proposed to follow.[6] Along with this, a live tour DVD was announced at their May 13, 2008 concert at the Izod Center that would contain recordings from several performances on their current tour.
