i can’t make you love me lyrics – bonnie raitt

“i can’t make you love me”

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
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.
‘cuz 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.
