I can’t seem to make you mine
Rolling around in circles all the time
Kiss and run all the time
I’m floating around like a bee
Hurting everything I see, oh
I tried everything I know, oh
To make you wanna love me so
But the only thing I see
Is you try to put the hurt on me

Can’t you see what you’re doin’ to me?
My mind’s made up in misery
Every day in every way
I’m more in love with you

Oh, I can’t go on like this
Looking for your kiss
Come on back, baby, to me
And ease my misery
Well, I can’t seem to make you mine
I can’t seem to make you mine

Oh, Come back baby
‘Cause I really want ya
Come back baby
‘Cause I really need ya
Come back baby
I’m all alone
Girl, I want you right now

Oh, I can’t seem to make you mine
I can’t seem to make you mine
I can’t seem to make you mine
I can’t seem to make you mine
