I Can't Make You Love Me
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


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

'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

'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

Turn down the lights

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
'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
'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

You know when I read your comment a year ago with the eyes of hurt and heartbreak I couldn't understand and agree with it.

But today, a year later... 2 years through the healing process I fully understand what you meant. Soon I will give love another chance. That mf took so much from me... He won't rob me of a soulmate too.

Thank you

And to everyone hurting take a leap of faith and dive into the unknown.....Toxic relationships do not wake up and just become better at some point... They degrade and become worse. Life is a gift from God and is too precious to be spend in so much agony and pain. These are days of your life you will never get back you choosing to spend accepting to be a door mat. The exchange is simply not worth it.

There comes a time when you must learn to have self worth... Draw the line. I remember feeling all the feelings you experiencing when tip toeing around leaving my abusive ex. Deep emotional pain... Heartbreak, "withdrawal symptoms" of sorts inconsolable pain which made me feel as if going back to him was the only remedy there of.

But that isn't true. You ought to pull yourself together and block and cut ties with an abuser and persevere and live through the pain of living without them. I know it seems undo able but I promise it is.

It's extremely difficult but it is definitely worth it

Leave toxic relationships. Healing is hard at first, living without someone you love is torture but it gets a whole lot better.
