I SING ALONE MY THOUGHTS ALONG

I Can’t Make You Love Me

artist: Bonnie Raitt

Turn down the lights,
Turn down the bed,
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.
Lay down with me,
And tell me no lies.
Just hold me close
And don’t patronize,
Don’t patronize.

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 that 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 ’til then to give up this fight,
And I will give up this fight.

Chorus:

Ain’t no use in crying, baby.

“I am nothing special; of this I am sure.
I am a common girl with common thoughts,
and I’ve led a common life.
There are no monuments dedicated to me
and my name will soon be forgotten,
but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul,
and to me, this has always been enough.”
– The Notebook
