I can't make you love me

I canít make you love me

I canít make you mine

I wish I could draw a line,

Between us

So I didnít have to feel this.


I knew it from the moment that we met

From the first time you made me smile

All the while,

You talked

I laughed.


I canít stop my feelings

I canít stop a fire when itís burning

And I know thereís no use me yearning,

Close my eyes

Try to bar my heart.


My heartís beating fast

I long to hold you

I wish you did too

Try to cover it all up

Try to pretend itís fine.


I canít tell you a million stories about one thing and never be boring forever

I canít change who I am

Or it would all be a sham.

My heart is rocking on the stormy sea

I hope you canít seeÖ


I canít make you love me

I canít make you mine

I wish I could draw a line,

Between us

So I didnít have to feel this.
