Ok, so I’m going a little old school with this one, adding a twist of country and blues. But no one says it better than my girl Bonnie. This song definitely has had some meaning for me in my life. Not only is it a beautful song, but it did help me to realize what a dead end I was in at one point and how I was fooling myself for the moment. One day driving to work after a huge blown out fight this song came on and I had never really listened to the words until that day (but have always loved it!) as they told me that I knew I had to let go eventually. This song was the first song that came on when I realized that that was that. So, pull out a good bottle of red wine for this one, it deserves only the best!

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, dont patronize – dont patronize me

Cause I cant make you love me if you dont
You cant make your heart feel something it wont
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and Ill feel the power
But you wont, no you wont
cause I cant make you love me, if you dont

Ill close my eyes, then I wont see
The love you dont feel when youre holding me
Morning will come and Ill do whats right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight

Cause I cant make you love me if you dont
You cant make your heart feel something it wont
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and Ill feel the power
But you wont, no you wont
cause I cant make you love me, if you dont
