"I Can't Make You Love Me" Bonnie Raitt

Perhaps one of the most bittersweet love songs ever written:



Artist: Bonnie Raitt
Song: I Can't Make You Love Me
Album: Luck of the Draw

 

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices
Inside my head
Lay down with me
Tell me no lies
Just hold me close
Don't patronize
Don't patronize me
  

Cuz I can't make you love me, if you don't
You can't make your heart feel somethin' it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
  I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power 

But you won't
No you won't
Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't


I'll close my eyes
Then I wont see
The love you don't feel
When your holdin' me
Morning will come
And I'll do what's right
Just give me till then
To give up this fight
And i will give up this fight

I can't make you love me, if you don't
You can't make your heart feel somethin' it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
  I will lay down my heart I'll feel the power 

But you won't
No you won't
Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't
