I can't make you love me if you don't


I love this Bonnie Raitt song for its sad and true message:

Artist/Band: Raitt Bonnie
Lyrics for Song: I Can't Make You Love Me
Lyrics for 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

CHORUS: Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something 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
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love you don't feel when you're holding 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

CHORUS: Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something 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
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

So true that love's absence makes love's coupling nearly impossible.

This is a song that always makes me cry. My ex-husband and I shared a love of Bonnie, and my ex-husband identified with this song when I stopped loving him.

A good cry can be a good thing. Sometimes love just dies and then you need to accept that and try to find a new love. Great song that captures a real emotion and situation that occurs in real life.
