Ruben Studdard – I Can't Make You Love Me lyrics

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
Don’t patronize me

Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
And you can’t make your heart
Feel something it won’t

Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
I’ll feel the power

But you won’t
No, you won’t
Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t

I’ll close my eyes
And then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holding me
(When you’re holding me)

The morning will come
And I’ll do what’s right
Just give me til then
To give up this fight
And I will give up this fight, yes

Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t (If you don’t)
You can’t make your heart
Feel something it won’t (something it won’t)

Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
I’ll feel the power

But you won’t
No, you won’t
Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
If you don’t

Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close
And don’t patronize

(Lay down with me) I can’t make you
(Tell me no lies) I can’t make you love
(Just hold me close) I’ll lay down my heart

And I know that you know and I know that you know and I know that you know
That I love you baby
Oh yea

(Lay down with me) Here in the dark
(Tell me no lies) In the final hours
(Just hold me close) Oh I wish! Oh I wish I had the power
To make you love me
But you won’t
