Adele - 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 closely
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 feel
Somethin' that it won't
And here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I will feel the power but you won't
No you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me
When you don't
When you don't

I'll close my eyes
'Cause then I won't see
The love you don't feel
When you're home with me
Morning will come
And I'll do what's right
Just give me till then
To give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel
Somethin' that it won't
And here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart
I will feel the power but you won't
No you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me
When you don't
When you don't

  5. Kristina Calimlim

  6. Kristina Calimlim

    I'm reading a wattpad story but it is day they are so happy with each other until a past few weeks it's like they didn't know each other..😭(KiefLy fiction)

  7. Julia Nowell

    This one goes out to my ex fiance.

  8. Syead Riad

    Its really painful to cry everyday for the same reason.

  9. Lord Farquaad

    Think I’m in love with my best friend :/

  10. Eva May

    I just want someone to love me as hard as I love them... Is that too much to ask?

  11. LGKids

    Their supposed to love you through the ups and downs, apparently thats sometimes that a one sided affair! Peace!

  12. ZainabSattar Muttar

    How can someone move on? teach me please , it's been two years and I can't stop loving him though many months pass without thinking about him ,sometimes it hits me hard..I can't even fall in love again ,it's not fair

  13. Arlene Valdez

    Yup... I can't make u love me .. when I dont..💔😔

  14. Brandy Webb

    Likewise. I cant make you love me, or act civil, or at least PRETEND you are mentally stable. Im a vagician, not a miracle worker.

  15. Kieron MacLeod

    It’s OK if you don’t love me, in fact I prefer it that way.

  16. Teri Sharp

    It hard when you both are in love, but must part because you are not meant to be each other's forever love.

  17. stephanie jahuey

    For ever my favorite singer and favorite song ❤️

  18. miss piscess

    One sided love is worst feeling you will ever feel

  19. Raíssa Farias

    I loved someone. We wasn't in a serious relationship but we stayed 1 year together, and he told me a lot of times that he loved me back, and that I was his angel. But then I found out he was seeing someone else too and he even introduced her to his friends (which he didn't do to me). I mean, if you do not love someone back, it's okay, love must be mutual. But if you don't love someone back and say that you do, only to have the person laying on their knees for you... that is cruel. No one deserves that. I'm listening to this song on repeat and I am in pain.. he should have told me the truth... I wouldn't force him to love me. :(

    Tammy James

    Maybe he was or is married.

  20. Cristina Iodice

    it’s sad when you are on the other side. Your partner loves you with all his heart, you think that you will never meet another person who will love like he does and you feel fucking crazy because you don’t love him. Just you don’t love him. It’s sad but we can’t pretend to love, we can’t pretend feelings, we can’t think to wait, we can’t think it’s our fault. So i left him, thanking him for all the things and all the love I received. He still loves me, he wants to marry him and it breaks my heart

  21. Mita Karlinaa

    I love someone who I can't have😔

  22. piemaker 12

    Hardest thing to do is watching someone you love pick someone else. Watching someone you love ignore you while giving others attention. Watching someone you love love someone else..

  23. Carolina Bastias

    Juro que me encanta 🥺

  24. Tome XVIII

    Gallery believe is not a problem for anyone so everyone should forget it because the most people has it today :) :) :) ;) :) :) :)

  25. Tome XVIII

    If it is we booth will work in it

    Foots BK as you like :)

  26. Charles Handren

    Her version feels rushed to me. I wish she'd slow down a bit and savor the lines a bit more.

  27. Mitzi Pepall

    This is a hard song to sing, and Bonnie makes it look easy. But Adele reveals all the difficulties.

  28. Queen Bee

    This makes me 😢 evertime I listening to song and so powerful 😥 the pain a person can put you through I like hitting a brick wall

  29. Camera's Apprentice

    Even when you feel like no one will ever love you, know that there is someone out there, and they are waiting for you to find them!

  30. Violet

    So I didn’t realize that this was originally a prince song

  31. Mel M

    Love this tune, bittersweet symphony ❤️😥

  32. Greig Cahill

    I prefer George Michael's version, but this is still incredible.

  33. Minh Lê

    Cause i can’t make you love me when you don’t 😉

  34. Jeimi Cato

    u know you really can't make anyone love you but I feel first to know what love really means is starting to look through gods eyes and see truth love and light which is a mirror reflection of who I truly am today as I stand in light of love.

  35. Jonathan Lawrence

    This is how I think life treats me
    I feel unwanted or purposeless

  36. Jair Jair

    I need Adele....

  37. Kimhoastudio

    Why I just listen to this song. ❤️

  38. Pamela Maloy

  45. Farrah White

    I just love Adele as a singer and as such a beautiful person. True talent and so humble.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  46. Aashma Pun

    This song is so Fucking Strong

  47. Patricia Arnold

    Beautiful...... I know these feelings gs so well. From daughters and other family members.. I can't believe it. I sacrificed my life for all of them.....😥🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👀🙏💜

  48. Vanessa Li

    I hated the fact that why did I even started to fall in love. All these while I’m good and happy being single not until my heart opens up and somehow fate brought us to meet. The process of yearning, longing and emotional attachment just grew so strong in me and the fact that he kinda doesn’t care much makes my heart goes broken. It sucks, it really sucks. There isn’t any seconds or minute that I wouldn’t think about him. But I just can’t feel my feelings being reciprocated. Heartbroken sucks. Now that I know it ain’t easy to find true love and let alone maintaining the relationship. I tell myself I’m not ok but I’m going to be okay. I’m just going to travel and do the things that I love to do. Don’t dwell in the past and move on. It is hard but it will eventually move on. I wish all of you guys out there to be able to find someone that you love and the love is being reciprocated. Appreciate the relationship and don’t lose them.

  49. Syniphe Ykant

    "...just give me till then to give up this fight, and I will give up this fight..."--this is one of the saddest, truest, and most loving lines in all of literature. This song was written by Mike Reid and Allen Shambin, not by Bonnie Raitt as we all think it was. What a great song it is.

  50. hi guys falanfilan

    I had crushes who doesn’t love me back. I was so upset, so down. But it was okay. Life was moving on.
    And I had a boyfriend who is my first. Who told me I love you. Who makes me feel beautiful, amazing, worthy.
    And then same guy told me I don’t have any emotions anymore, he left me. Now I’m the ugliest creature in the world I’m nothing, I’m worthless, I don’t deserve any better.
    I’m fucked up this time.

  51. liliana frincu

    imi pare rau sa o spun dar interpretarea este foarte slaba fata de cea a minunatului george michael.

  52. I Th

    My girlfriend told me she loves me and I love her so much but for some reason I find it so difficult to believe that she really loves me, I feel like she’s going to turn around at any minute and tell me we should end things or that she doesn’t feel the same about me as I feel about her and the worst part is I have absolutely no reason to think that. It’s just a permanent, looming fear and doubt and I hate it because it’s awful to be constantly worried that everyone in your life secretly hates you or that the person you love most doesn’t really want you and it sounds so easy to fix but I can’t get these thoughts out of my head ever and it makes me so tired

    Farrah White

    I Th I will pray for you . She loves you ❤️😢

  53. José carlos Souza Andreza

    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 feel something it won't
    Here in the dark, in these final hours
    I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
    But you won't, no you won't
    'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

    I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
    The love you don't feel when you're holding me
    Morning will come and I'll do what's right
    Just give me till then to give up this fight
    And I will give up this fight

    'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
    You can't make your heart feel something it won't
    Here in the dark, in these final hours
    I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
    But you won't, no you won't
    'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't


    Do you know why we were so perfect in the beginning and why we can't get back there. You didn't make me play this stupid Wheres Waldo game back then. I could just be me. You spend more time trying to trick me into cheating on you than loving me. Think about that, it is the only difference

  55. La Mash

    😭😍😢♥️😢😢😭😍😍😍🔥2019 October

  56. Christopher Langford

    Sing it Girl❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  57. deniro800

    She attacks this song too hard

  58. InfiniteOcean

    I'm so fucking confused. I'm searching up this song to see who wrote it, EVERY POPULAR SINGER EVER IS SINGING IT AND I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHO WROTE THIS MASTERPIECE

    Farrah White

    InfiniteOcean Bonnie Raitt wrote this song and she sang it years ago . Look it up on iTunes she was the original one.

  59. itscrucial

    No, No, just No!, she fkd this version up. I'll stick to Raitt's version. Thank you and I'm the fk! outta here!! with skid marks!!!

  60. slede love

    To you... The lady who stole my heart... The mother of my daughter... Our love story was beautiful but it turned out to be a sad song. I will never love someone as much as I did you. I could smile and pretend. Our love story was like a movie and only our angels know it. I miss you... And I still love you. I STILL LOVE YOU 💔💔 but I can't make you love me when you don't... George Michael singing it is much more heartfelt but this is also beautiful. Everytime I hear this lady sing I'm there beside the one I love. I beg you... Whoever my maker is... Take me fast because this cancer hurts but the pain of this man's broken heart hurts alot more. Joe make her see this when I'm gone xxxxxx make her feel it. Make her see... She was my heart beat 💕

  61. xzotic92

    Hold me close but dont put it in??? Get the fuck of me then!!!

  62. Claire Wood

    The hardest thing is letting go of someone who don’t love you anymore 💔😭 he don’t love me anymore and I can’t move on and forget him my heart aches 🙈

  63. Linda Holmes

    Way too rushed

  64. Jl Movement

    don't come close to the original version

  65. Joseph G

    please watch my vids and everyone have a good day thanks

  66. Erik Johnson

    Bonnie Raitt sang it better.....👎

  67. mike mailman

    Do you ever ask yourself...Was it really love in the beginning? How can someone you thought loved you for all those years, shatter your heart into a million pieces?

  68. Timmy Clark

    Thank You so Much for all that YOU DO for US fans that enjoy every lyrical step.

  69. Coleysclay

    I played with alot of hearts when I was 17-31.. at 31 I met the one who would break my heart.. I'll never be able to wrap my head around how someone can love another so much they would give up their last breath for, to someone who wouldn't even piss on them if they were on fire.. after we broke up I got their name tattooed across my heart.. I've been single 9 yrs now. . And still I'd give my last breath for this person..

  70. Nicholas Shelley

    Bon Iver.

  71. Neptuned 220

    My whole marriage in a song.

  72. Victor Komori

    Oh, this did not match my really high expectation from Adele. Somehow this is not her song...

  73. Dan Yager

    This is NOT a great version of this song. Seems rushed. Too bad really.

  74. Selena Herzog

    I am alone

  75. Courtney Prnnybacker

    I think this song is about her and her demons

  76. Emily White

    Everyone is thinking of their spouse or s/o. But I'm sitting here thinking of all the fights I've had with my mother and how I doubt she actually cares about me

    Cris Flores

    She loves you


    She is in love with you

    Krim Eggers

    No love is deeper then a love a parent has for there child. She loves u regardless of how many fights u have with her

  77. Icalynn Davis

    This will always be the best cover

  78. Gabrielle Desane

    Tank 💜

  79. GesineTschatter

    For Adele is a "weak" song. Her previous songs were much better.

  80. Dessycomesalive

    2019 and I’m still living, breathing, and loving this song

  81. Divine light

    Sorry, but Teddy Swims does a much better heartful version of the song. Go listen to him.

    Kirsten Laidlaw

    Higher Love Bonnie Raitt too - much, much better.

  82. Serina Vanderfall

    He says he loves me he misses me that I miss everything in this life but his actions are different he’s always busy he never calls he answers my texts late And the worst part is that I love him to the point I can’t describe how much I love him I have never felt in love with anyone this strong before And it hurts to know that he doesn’t seem to love me at all

  83. Silvia N.

    First time I heard this song was after being in depression for 3 months, then I picked myself up but one month later, I relapsed and fell into another depression for almost 2 years. It still hurts, not as much as before, but it is painful,nonetheless.
    I am still working on myself, learning to love and appreciate myself better. Although I have days I cry for no reason, just because I feel I've been too strong for so long and it's weighing on me. But I still wipe those tears each time and keep forging on.
    Stay strong fellow broken heart, no matter the reason, heartbreak, terminal illness, both, loss of a loved one, etc just know you aren't alone. Lots of love and hugs from me.

    Briana G.

    Silvia N. Keep pushing Silvia ❤️

  84. streetstunna600

    Listen at .075 slower. Little deformed but it gives peace to the song!

  85. streetstunna600

    Slow down!!!!!

  86. Amber Osei

    I vote this the best break up song of all time. Every time I hear it, I think of when my heart was broken. Also, Make You Feel my Love, and that Rascal Flatt song, “Trying to do” I think?? Oh and that Jewel song, Dreams Last for So long!!

    So I guess you can tell how old I was when I was a teenager. However, with as many covers as this one has, you can tell it is so powerful.

  87. vvarisang

    I love this person so much. We're dating but I feel like he doesn't love me back. And it's ok, it just hurts

  88. Martell White

    I’ve tried and it’s not even possible thank u Adele for this song I love u

  89. Mona Okasha


  90. Jamila Bi

    Ive tried to give up the fight but my heart just won't...
    I'll stay on that life support machine for as long as it takes...

  91. alexa kenzie

    i still wonder to this day what i did to mess up.

  92. lovelyj 75

    What a voice. Wow

  93. Mocha B

    This song ruined my life

  94. Karima Ghailes

    2019 !! Who's here? September 🖤

  95. Andrew Olearnick

    To Joyce, when we used to make love to just sex. Never again.

  96. Lisa Martinez

    Going thru this right now, cried to sleep. Love this song

  97. Katelyn~Chan

    Of all the choices that I've made this is the worst one. But I am not sorry that I'm in love with you Phen
