Jon Young – Can't Make You Love Me lyrics

I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't

I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't

She's damaged goods but still I wish I could be the one to
Heal us over if it's gonna stop for good
Or maybe it isn't me with whom she's meant to be
But I feel I understand what others don't seem to see
She's hurt so I don't expect much Others might just get fed up
Might hurt her even more so I just can't quit and give up
How can I say I love her if I'm so quick to dip
But at the same time I'm waistin time cause she
Has no other gifts she's causin me pain but that's not her intention
How can I make her feel whats beond her comprehension
I give her attention but I'm not sure it even matters
She's to bruised and battered to be the slightest bit flattered
Am I dumb if I stay here am I wrong if I move on
Will she ever come around and if so then how long
She's incapable of love while I got so much to give
All I can really do is be there but I got my life to live

I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't

Shit I can try and try but baby I ask why o why
And I aint one to cry so I'm gon lie and keep my eyes dry
But deep inside I'm hurtin I tried to keep it workin
Was it you or was it me the reason I ain't certain
I guess it aint important no need to point the blame
It's just a thing that happens sometimes girls and feelings change
So no it aint you and no it aint me
It's just the way it is I guess that's how it's supposed to be
We had our good times and I won't ever forget em
We made our bad choices but I won't ever regret em
It's like a life lesson learn from these and move on
Even when it's hard it's something that you gotta do dawg
And though it aint easy but homie best believe me
That tryin to keep it leads to lies deceit and then to cheatin
So I'm gon let it go and I'm gonna wish you best
Cause I can't change your mind so I hope that you find happiness

I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't

    This Is An Amazing Song and gets to the point. Me n my bf of 2yrs only fought 3 times but they say the 3rd time is a charm cuz we are neva gonna b bak together. But the 1st time we fought and broke up over the weekend and the he played me "TAKE A CHANCE ON ME" and we got back together. But now this is my Jon Young song to him.
