Ooh... oh
Yeah, my... oh (Ooh, ooh)

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 (Ooh, ooh)
Don't patronize me

Cuz I can't make U love me if U don't
I can't make ur heart feel somethin' it won't
Here n the dark n these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But U won't, no, U won't
Cuz I can't make U love me if U don't
Do U, do U love me? (Ooh)
Look at me (Ooh)

I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love U don't feel when U're holding me (Hold me)
Morning will come and I'll do what's right (Do it right)
Just give me till then 2 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 U don't
I can't make ur heart feel somethin' it won't
I wanna know here n the dark, n the dark, baby
These final hours I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power, oh yes I will
But U won't
Tell me why, tell me why U don't? (I can't make U love me if U don't)

Come here, baby, talk 2 me (I can't make ur heart feel...)
Tell me where U wanna b kissed (Somethin' it won't)
Talk 2 me, tell me how U want me 2 do this (Ooh)
N this bedroom/church, U can guess the offering (Ooh)
I offer U my heart, I offer U sexual relations
But U won't (U won't)
Tell me what's up, baby? Am I movin' 2 fast?
Not only do I wanna b the 1st, I wanna b the last, the last (Ooh)
Is that so bad? (Ooh)
I... I want 2... U know
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna make U love me
Do U love me?
Come on, baby, U can take it (My heart) (Come on and take it)
It's real love, I wanna make it (I wanna)
But U won't love me, love me (But U won't)
U won't love me, baby (Ooh)
What's a man 2 do?
What is this man gonna do?
I can't make U love me if U don't (Ooh...)
I want U 2 love me (Ooh)
I need U 2 kiss me, yeah
Oh darlin', 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 ur thighs
I can't make U love me (Ooh)
