    Lyrics below

     

    [Chorus 1]
    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

    [Chorus 2]
    Because I can’t make you love me if you don’t
    I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
    Here in the dark, in these final hours
    I will lay down my heart (my heart) and I’ll feel the power
    But you won’t, no, you won’t

    [Bridge]
    Because I can’t make you love me if you don’t
    Do you?
    Do you love me?
    Look at me

    [Verse 2]
    I’ll close my eyes, then I won’t see
    The love you don’t feel, when you’re holding me (Hold me)
    Morning will come and I’ll do what’s right (Do it right [x2])
    Just give me ’til then to give up this fight
    And I will, I will give up this fight
    Oh, yes I will

    [Chorus 2]
    Because I can’t make you love me if you don’t
    I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
    Here in the dark, in these final hours
    I will lay down my heart (my heart) and I’ll feel the power
    But you won’t, no, you won’t
    Tell me why, tell me why you don’t?

    [Verse 3]
    (I can’t make you love me if you don’t)
    Come here, baby
    (I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t)
    Talk to me, tell me where you want to be kissed
    Talk to me, tell me how you want me to do this
    In this bedroom/church, you can guess the offering
    I offer you (My heart)
    I offer you sexual relations (But you won’t)
    But you won’t (you won’t)
    Tell me what’s up baby?
    Am I moving to fast?
    Not only do I want to be the first, I want to be the last, the last
    Is that so bad?
    I.. I want to.. you know
    I want to, I want to, I want to make you love me
    (Do you love me?)
    Come on baby, you can take it (My heart) (Come on and take it)
    It’s real love – I want to make it (I want to)
    But you won’t love me, love me (But you won’t)
    You won’t love me, baby
    What’s a man to do?
    What is this man gonna do?
    I can’t make you love me if you don’t
    I want you to (love me) love me
    I need you to (kiss me, yeah)
    Oh darlin’ (Love me)
    Love me [x5]

    [Chorus 1]
    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 between your thighs
    (I can’t make you love me)
