I Can't Change You
5 October, 2012
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I can change the color of my hair
I can change the clothes I wear
It won't change the way you feel about me

I can add a tattoo to my skin
I can change the house I'm living in
But I can't make you love me

When did love change it's song
When did I go wrong
Why can't I make you love me

Maybe.. I can't change a thing
Maybe.. it's time to cast away the ring
No matter what, I can't make you love me

It's so sad you no longer love me

------- Author's Notes -------

Sometimes you have to let go and move on....
