I Can’t Make You Love Me
by Josh Kaufman



Turn down the lights,
turn down the bed,
turn down these voices,
inside my head

Lay down with me,
tell me no lies,
just hold me close,
don't patronize me [2x]

Cause I can't make you love me
if you don't,
you can't make your heart feel
something it wont,
here in the dark,
these final words
I will lay down my heart
and I feel the power
but you don't,
no you don't

Cause I can't make you love me,
if you don't [2x]

I'll close my eyes,
Then I wont see
The love you don't feel,
when you're holding me
Morning will come,
and I'll do what's right
Just give me till then
To give up this fight
And I will give up this fight...

Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
I can't make your heart feel,
something it wont,
Here in the dark
These final words
I will lay down my heart
And I feel the power
but you don't,
no you don't

I can't make you love me if you don't
If you don't,
no you, no you won't

I found love darlin' [5x]
Love in the nick of time
I found love darlin' yeah,
Love in the nick of time
