[Intro]

       C Em9  C  G/B  Em7 Am7
       C Em7  C  G/B  Am7


[Verse 1]

C             Em7                   C
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
                G/B    Em7       Am7 
Turn down these voices inside my head 
C             Em7            C
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
             G/B    Em7        Am7               G/D  D
Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me 


[Chorus]

      G/B     C        G              C
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
                    G          G/B          C
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Em7         G/C      D/F#        Em7 
Here in the dark, in these final hours 
                   G/C       D/F#          Em7
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power 
    Am7           G/D   D
But you won't, no you won't
               C        G     G/C       C   Em9   C  G/B  Am7
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't 


[Verse 2]

C             Em7                C
I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
                   G/B       Em7            Am7 
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
C            Em7                     C 
Morning will come and I'll do what's right
                  G/B     Em7          Am7 
Just give me till then to give up this fight
                          G/D  D  G/B 
And I will give up this fight 


[Chorus]

      G/B     C        G              C
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
                    G          G/B          C
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Em7         G/C      D/F#        Em7 
Here in the dark, in these final hours 
                   G/C       D/F#          Em7
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power 
    Am7           G/D   D
But you won't, no you won't
               C        G     G/C       C  Em7  C  G/B  Em7  Am7
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

+-------+
Listen to the song to get the timing of the chords.
The end of the song is basically oohs along with the chords used for the verses.

Every other line at the end alternates between the C and the Am7 as the last chord of the phrase.

The final chord is an Fmaj9 which is a very dissonant chord.
That is how it is played in the song.
