"I Can't Make You Love Me " as written by Adriel Alan Garcia, Elliott Marsh Sharp, Steve Miloszewski and John Leslie Whitney....
The shadows are alive without you
There in my heart you broke in two
I went down to my knees for you and tried to make believe
But you can't say that it's not true, whoa

I'm coming to get you, baby
I'm coming to get you, baby
I'm coming to get you, baby

I can't make you love me
No, I can't make you stay
Love is far above me
When I let you run away

Remember life is almost over
Even sheltered halls will flood with rain
I hope the lights are green from silver sheets and diamond rings
Will be enough to ease your pain, whoa

I'm coming to get you, baby
I'm coming to get you, baby
I'm coming to get you, baby

I can't make you love me
No, I can't make you stay
(I can't make you love me)
Love is far above me
When I let you run away

The shadows are alive without you
There in my heart you broke in two

I can't make you love me
No, I can't make you stay
(I can't make you love me)
Love is far above me
When I let you run away
(I can't make you love me)

And I can't make you love me
And I can't make you love me
And I can't make you love me

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of the song is that it's about him loving this girl and she leaves him for something better, "I hope the lights are green from silver sheets and diamond rings. Will be enough to ease your pain." like she didnt love this better thing, but made the choice anyways, and he is venting about it. And that no matter what he does, he cant have her, because he cant get her back.
