Michael Mcdonald – You Can’t Make It Love Lyrics

By Azlyrics

By Michael McDonald and John Scott Sherrill

You if anyone should know that time will tell.
Not so long ago, you taught me oh so well.
Now your time has come;
Someone took your place.
No need to tell me that he’s gone;
I can read it on your face.

Chorus:
You learn that you can dream every night.
You can try all you like.
You can pray every day that it’s enough.
And you can hope all you want;
It’s something to hang your faith on,
But you can’t make it love.

There’s no way love can grow

If only one is true.
I would think that you would know;
After all, I learned this from you.
No matter how much one’s in love,
As long as one is lying,
There ain’t no amount of tears;
There ain’t no amount of trying.

Chorus:
You learn that you can dream every night.
You can try all you like.
You can pray every day that it’s enough.
And you can hope all you want;
It’s something to hang your faith on,
But you can’t make it love.
No you can’t make it love.
