You Won’t Make Me
© 2011 by BowlingWithEd)
You love me enough to woo me,
to draw me close to You.
To whisper Your affections,
and to shout Your loyalty is true.
And You beg me to open
myself to You…
But You don’t make me love You
My heart is a bit of bursting,
with all the gifts you shove my way.
You seem to be coming strong,
and trying to buy me to make me stay.
But it’s different than that,
Your reason is not that.
Cause you don’t make me love You
You won’t take me with gifts and flattery
You don’t make me love You
You won’t try to force what could be mine
My eyes are a shade of red tears,
from all the outside pressing down.
I’m ready to give You what You want now,
as long as You’ll give it back.
But you won’t make me love You
You won’t trade some tricks to get my love
You won’t make me love You
You won’t take what isn’t true of love
