"Make It Right" as written by Andrew Dodd, Adam Watts and Nicholas Nick Jonas....
You say you'll know when you really find the one
But it's hard to tell with the damage that's been done
But I'd like to say that it's your fault
But I know better
Cause I'm a fool to think you'll wait around forever

Maybe I, could have loved you
Maybe I, could have shown
That I still do care about you
More than you could know
Don't say it's too late to try
To make it right
Oh, to make it right, yeah

I didn't know how good you were for me
Now its clear, I'm seeing all that we could be
And I know that its my fault
But I'm gonna treat you better
Cause if I had one wish
You'd be with me forever

Maybe I, could have loved you
Maybe I, could have shown
That I still do care about you
More than you could know
Don't say it's too late to try
To make it right
Oh

Is there something I could say?
Show me how to break you down,
So before you walk away
Take the time to turn around
Listen to me now,

Maybe I, could have loved you
Maybe I, could have shown
That I still do care about you
More than you could know
Don't say it's too late to try

Maybe I, could have loved you
Maybe I, could have shown
That I still do care about you
More than you could know
Don't say it's too late to try
To make it right
Oh, to make it right
Make it right
Gonna make it right
Oh yeah

    General CommentSimple song. The writer knows it's his fault for the fights and not showing how much he truly does care about her and love her. So he wants her to stop and listen, because he wants to "make it right," hence the title.

    Song MeaningThe boy feels like he loved the girl, but after everything that's happened he can't tell. He wants to blame it on her because he's so angry about the breakup though it really was his fault and he knows that. He clearly wants her back & doesn't know how to tell her, also he's scared she'll say it's too late.

    General CommentIts obviously about someone the writer had a relationship with. They thought that person could have been the one but obviously so much has happened they are no longer together the fact that "wait around forever" is mentioned implies maybe it had something to do with timing or not doing enough to show they care, it also implies the person it is about has moved on with someone else that is why
    "But I'd like to say that it's your fault But I know better 'Cause I'm a fool to think You'd wait around forever".
    The song then goes on to say
    "Maybe I could have loved you"
    Generally it could be thought that he means he didn't love the person but instead I think it means loved them the way they wanted to be loved: commitment being in a relationship with the person because the previous verse showed that they loved the person just with the mention that they could have been the one also
    "Maybe I could have shown That I still do care about you more than you could know"
    Backs this up because the writer obviously is regretting not trying harder and committing themselves, the person that its about obviously had a previous relationship with the writer
    "I still do care about you"
    Overall It seems the writer is telling a story, the main point of it being a past relationship that is unresolved, The writer wants to blame the person its about because they have moved on but then goes on to express that they were not there and they didn't do enough therefore it is not the persons fault for moving on, however the writer does still care about the person because now that they are gone the writer is seeing everything they could have been and just wants a chance to make it right. The writer obviously has strong feeling as they say "Cause if I had one wish you'd be with me forever"

    Any just an interpretation ;)

    General CommentNick wrote this song and it's about his relationship with Selena Gomez after they broke up the first time around. I think it's basically about him realizing that he fell for her, but just couldn't see it at the time because they fought and split. After the breakup though, all he wants to do is make it right because it was his fault. Although, once they break up for the second time around and this is finally released off off JONAS LA for their show, he sings it in a livechat and changes the lyrics to "And I'd like to say it's my fault but I know better" to basically say that the second time around, it wasn't his fault because he truly did try, while she doubted him and broke it off before she left for half a year. It's a really beautiful song, I just wished Nick recorded this himself instead of using it for their Disney show.
