about

I call this song my relationship prayer. It’s nice to have a reminder of what we realistically can and cannot do for others. You can’t make someone else happy. But you can tell them a joke and make them laugh. And sometimes those little things mean a lot.

lyrics

LYRICS:
Can I love you and not overthink it
Can I love you and just let it be
Can I love you and not worry about it
Can I let this feeling bloom inside of me

Can I love you and not wanna own you
Can I love you and let you go free
Can I love you and not try to change you
Can I let you be you and let me be me

Oh, I want something simple
Even though I know it's not that simple
So, let me start with something simple
Just to wake up every morning thinking

What can I do to make you, what can I do to make you
What can I do, what can I do
What can I do to make you smile

Can I love you and not try to shield you
Can I tell the truth and let you get burned
Can I love you and not take you for granted
Even after the years have made it seem like there's nothing left to learn

Oh, I can't make you happy
Nobody else can make us happy
So, I'll pray that you are happy
But the only thing I'll ask myself is

What can I do to make you, what can I do to make you
What can I do, what can I do
What can I do to make you smile
