Don Henley – You Can't Make Love lyrics

You can make money, you can make good friends
You can make mistakes and you can make amends
You can make it easy when push comes to shove, but-
You can't make love

You can make advances, you can make big plans
Plant sloppy kisses all over her hands
You can tell her everything you're dreamin' of, but-
You can't make love

Love's a little word that's been kicked around
Used too much, beaten down
What in the world are you thinkin' of?
You can't make love

You can go through the motions with your magic spells
Buy all the potions that Fifth Avenue sells
You can try to call down all the stars above, but-
You can't make love

You can buy her diamonds, you can go out in style
You can make a promise, you can walk down the aisle
You can make a life for her that fits like a glove, but-
You can't make love

Oh it takes so long
You gotta be strong
Before it's gone
What in the world were you thinkin' of, boy-
You can't make love
