"What Can I Do" as written by Kelly Price, T. Jones and Brad Jordan....
I haven't slept at all in days
It's been so long since we've talked
And I have been here many times
I just don't know what I'm doing wrong

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

There's only so much I can take
And I just got to let it go
And who knows I might feel better
If I don't try and I don't hope

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

No more waiting, no more aching
No more fighting, no more trying

Maybe there's nothing more to say
And in a funny way I'm calm
Because the power is not mine
I'm just gonna let it fly

What can I do to make you love me
What can I do to make you care
What can I say to make you feel this
What can I do to get you there

Love me

    General CommentI loved this song the moment I first heard it.

    The lyrics are simple, so is the song.
    But in it's simplicity it conveys a complicated situation. Loving someone who will possibly never love you back.

    The speaker knows that the one she loves will never love her. She knows it's useless to try and hope. But part of her always will hope and therefore try. Love does that to you.

    General CommentI really like this song, despite the lyrics to being particulary happy the tunes quite jolly i thought :)
    I like just about every Corrs song out there, their just so catchy! This songs really sweet and it actually makes you take less people for granted i thought :S :D, also though i'm sure most people can relate to it because theirs always going to be someone who wont love you as much as you do them! If you get that? lol :)

    General CommentThere is this girl that I would give so much to be with and this song kind of describes the situation perfectly.

    General CommentThis song is so simple and still so true. It has been my song for so long now...Even when the sound is cool and melow, I find the lyrics particularly sad...because to me it's accepting that the person you are in love with (or involved with) will never be completely yours, but you are still so attached to him/her. It's like you know it's a lost cause but you can't avoid the sentiment and the pain this "could have been" situation brings to you...sad sad.

    General CommentI love this song. It's so simple, and the meaning is plainly obvious to anyone who has ever been in this situation.

    She knows that despite her feelings for someone, they will never feel the same way for her, regardless of what she does. It perfectly describes a part of my own life.
