#SongLyricSunday | I Can’t Make You Love Me


Song Lyric Sunday banner


Song Lyric Sunday is hosted by Helen Vahdati over at This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and all the rules can be found here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “pretending”.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

Helen is teaming up with Simply Marquessa and this week’s SLS theme was inspired by her weekly #LyricalFictionFriday theme: “I think it’s so sweet…how you let your friends encourage you to try and talk to me…but let me stop you there…” from the song NO by Meghan Trainor.


We all pretend.

When we’re children, it’s fun. As teenagers, we want to fit in. Once we reach adulthood, we pretend to get along, go along with the program and not make waves.

One of the most difficult times we pretend is in relationships. We pretend everything’s fine, it’s just a phase, we’ll get through this. Only we don’t.

In this twenty-six-year-old treasure from Bonnie Raitt, the relationship is over. She wants one last night with him… with no more pretending.

 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
