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

'Cuz I can't make U 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
'Cuz I can't make U love me if you don't

Do you, do you love me?
Look at me

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, do it right)
Just give me 'til then to give up this fight
And I will, I will give up this fight, oh, yes I will

'Cuz I can't make U love me if you don't
I can't make your heart feel something it won't
Ah, don't you know here in the dark
In the dark, baby, these final hours
(Here in the dark)

I will lay down my heart
(My heart)
And I'll feel the power, oh, yes, I will
But you won't, tell me, why
Tell me, why you don't?

(I can't make U 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 wanna 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 wanna be the first
I wanna be the last, the last
Is that so bad?
I, I want to, you know

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna 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 wanna make it
(I wanna)
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, love me, love me
Love me, love me

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 U love me)
