"Don't Make Me" as written by Marla Cannon-goodman, Deanna Bryant and Dave Berg....
Girl, when I look at you
You look through me like I'm not even there
I'm trying not to give up
To be strong but I'm afraid to say I'm scared
I can't find the place your heart is hiding
And I'm no quitter but I'm tired of fighting

Baby I love you
Don't want to lose you
Don't make me let you go
Took such a long time for me to find you
Don't make me let you go
Baby, I'm begging please
And I'm down here on my knees
I don't want to have to set you free
Don't make me

What if when I'm long gone it dawns on you, you just might want me back?
Let me make myself clear
If I leave here its done, I'm gone, that's that

You carry my love around
Like it's a heavy burden
I'm about to take it back
Are you sure it's worth it?

Baby I love you
Don't want to lose you
Don't make me let you go
Took such a long time for me to find you
Don't make me let you go
Baby, I'm begging please
And I'm down here on my knees
I don't want to have to set you free
Don't make me

Baby, I'm begging please
And I'm down here on my knees
I don't want to have to set you free
Don't make me

    General CommentShe has this emotional barrier that she has put up. He tries so hard to love her, and to break that barrier, but he's tired of getting nowhere. He doesn't want to leave her, but he feels that she is giving him no other choice. So he's asking her to let him in, because he doesn't want to let her go.

    General CommentJust heard this song for the first time and loved it.

    To me, I think it could mean a man and a woman have just recently broken up, and the guy doesn't want to give her up and doesn't want to get her out of his mind.

    This song means a lot because it sounds like what I'm going through right now...

    General CommentI think this song is about a woman who is treating her man like crap. She probably doesnt even know she is, so he is letting her know how it makes him feel, and that he's willing to love her but he cant continure on the way it is going.

    General CommentThe song shows that there are 2 people in a relationship, that were both at one point in love with each other, but now only one is still in love. The man in the song is trying to make the girl fall back in love, but so far it's not working, and he's almost ready to do the one thing he doesnt want to, and thats letting her go..... all to familiar.

    General Commenti think its more along the emotional barrier part, as he says " i cant find the place your heart is hiding"
    she has put this wall up and obviously he sees great things and does not want to let her go but how can they have a good and loving relationship when she keeps holding back and being true to herself, thats my take on this song
