Adele: I Can't Make You Love Me Meaning

Song Released: 2012

I Can't Make You Love Me Lyrics

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.
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart...

    You really can't make someone love you,you just can't! If they don't,don't force them cause it will only make you feel worse knowing that he/she doesn't love you,they'll only love you just because you forced them too.

    What This Song Means To Me Is, Your Really In Love With Someone And You Know They Will Never Love You Back. You Try And Try To Get Them To Fall In love with You But It Doesn't Work. So You Finally Realize It Doesn't Work, They'll Never Feel The Same Way. But Right Before You Lose Hope You Tell Yourself "I Just Need One More Night" And On That Last Night You Escape to A Place Where They Actually Love You And When That Night Ends You Give Up.

    When you finaly realize after 18 years of marriage that you and your husband have changed and you have both grown apart and there's nothing you or he can do to make the marriage work and you still love him but he is letting you know he don't love you or care about you any more so make the decision to end the marriage. And move on after one last night spending with him

    You can love someone. But you can never force him/her to love you back if they don't really feel it! ;(
    I've been in that situation, and the feeling sucks a lot. But i've gotta admit that everything seems to turn out better when i realized that nothing really lasts forever. People change. And so the feelings they once had for us. :))

    Yeah.. The lyrics says it all!
    You can't make someone love you, if he/she doesn't really feel it.. :(
    The feeling sucks a lot!! But you've got your own life to live, so instead of crying and being depressed because the person you love doesn't love you back, just do the right thing. And it starts in two simple words: MOVE ON! :))
