"Can't Stop Lovin You" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
There's a time and place for everything
For everyone
We can push with all our might
But nothin's gonna come
Oh no, nothin's gonna change
And if I asked you not to try
Oh, could you let it be

I wanna hold you and say
We can't throw this all away
Tell me you won't go, you won't go, do you
Have to hear me say
I can't stop lovin' you
And no matter what I say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop lovin' you

You can change your friends
Your place in life
You can change your mind
We can change the things we say
And do anytime
Oh no, but I think you'll find
That when you look inside your heart
Oh baby, I'll be there, yeah

Hold on
I'm holding on
Baby, just come on, come on, come on
I just wanna hear you say
I can't stop lovin' you
And no matter what you say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop lovin' you
Oh, I'm so twisted and tied
And all I remember
Was how hard we tried
Only to surrender

And when it's over
I know how it's gonna be
And true love will never die
Oh, not fade away
And I can't stop lovin' you
No matter what I say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop lovin' you
And I know what I got to do
Hey Ray, what you said is true
Oh, I can't stop lovin' you, oh
Oh, I can't stop lovin' you

    General CommentI can't believe noone's mentioned this yet:

    The last verse pays tribute to Ray Charles' "I Can't Stop Loving You".

    General CommentIt's funny that you mention the Ray Charles homage because I considered the line "And true love will never die, no, not fade away" to be drawing reference from The Rolling Stones song "Not Fade Away".

    General CommentI'd put this in Van Hagar's 5 best, no question
    it's one of my favorites, just because it hits so close to home for me
    There's a girl I've been nuts about for close to 10 years, and she's made it quite clear she is only interested in being friends, and not very close friends at that
    but I still think of her all the time, because it doesn't matter what she says or does, I can't stop loving her
