To Make You Love Me

Story Behind The Song

If you've been reading any of my other lyrics, you'll understand I'm not a "feel-good" lyricist, to say the least. And although I AM capable of writing positive stuff, it seems there are a lot of folks doing that already. So, I write my little dramas, and some of the lyrics are very dark, but I put them with these deceptively "pop" melodies and arrangements, and usually about halfway through the song the listener is, like, whoa...what's this about?!! I suppose its a bit like writting a mystery novel, imagining what these characters are feeling. But for only 4 minutes or so at a time! Most of my stuff is observational, either by observing people I know, or stories or items from the media combined with imagination. And it does take longer to write lyrics like these, but its fun.

Song Description

We all know you can't MAKE someone love you. But someone gets to the point of obsession, and perhaps they think they can by manipulating events (kill anyone who ever made you cry), etc. This is a story of someone deeply disturbed.

To Make You Love Me
Lyrics and music c. Steve Waddington

You know I'd walk through fire just for you
Do anything that you ask me to
To have you here and never let you go away

I'd move mountains just to hear you sigh
Kill anyone that ever made you cry
Run over anything that stands in my way

And I'll do everything I can
To Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me...

My obsession now is crystal clear
Nobody's gonna make it disappear
Until I have you I know it will never end

And even though this might be just my dream
Things are never quite the way they seem
If I could hold you I'd be happy to pretend

Someday I will find a way
To Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me...

I know you don't really love me
But I don't care
And you may never know it
Still, I'll be with you everywhere...

Nothing you can say will change my mind
You can run away but still you'll find
At the end I'll be waiting there for you

And I'll be praying for a way
To Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me
Make You Love Me...
