"I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" by the Jayhawks

Marc believed in love’s resilience. At moments of discouragement, either mine or his, he’d assert his love by playing the Jayhawk’s “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me(3:42 minutes).

“Le coeur a ses raisons que le raison ne connaît point.”
“The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know.”
— Blaise Pascal, Pensées

“[That] which cannot be within the realm of reason simply has to be within the realm of love.”
(From Tang Xianzu’s preface to Peony Pavilion [16th century]; translation by Wai-yee Li)
The world never ends
It’s only the beginning
And we can’t pretend
To discover it’s meaning
. . .
I’ll never be all you want me to
But that’s all right
I’m gonna make you love me
I’m gonna dry your tears
And we’re gonna stay together
For a million years
