Pet Names – I Can't Make You Love Me lyrics

Was lying in the sand
I was crashing in the waves
I was floating through the air
But I couldn’t make you stay

We were sitting on the couch
When you started tearing up
There were soft and simple sounds
When we were coming undone

But no, I can't make you love me
I can't make you happy
I can't turn those grey skies

I know we both have pasts
And we have strange and selfish ways
I could try to make you laugh
Or I could try to make you stay

I don’t wanna write songs
To try to right wrongs
