Janis Ian – I Want To Make You Love Me lyrics

Friendly stranger
Look what you do to me
Smiling faces
And I melt inside
Singing praises of your company
I want to lay me down
Stay all through the night
You are too good to be
Wholly and totally mine
You are too good to be
Slipping away like wine
And I'm waiting, praying
Skating on the edge of the line
Let me down easy
Let me down easy
I want to make you love me
And I want to make you smile
And I want to be your family
For just a little while
I get frightened by the thunder
And the lightning roars
Like a bullet in the pourin rain
I get heightened
By your wondering arms
Lay me down-
Do it all over again
You are too good to be
Wholly and totally mine
You are slipping away
And I'm making you stay
And I'm waiting for the sun to shine
I go rolling down the incline
Holding on a lifeline
Stopping on the edge of a dime
Let me down easy
Let me down easy
Repeat chorus
