[Random] Bonnie Raitt – I Can’t Make You Love Me

♬ BONNIE RAITT – I CAN’T MAKE YOU LOVE ME ♬

First time I knew this song because Adele sang this song too at her concert, Adele Live At The Royal Albert Hall Concert.

And I was so amazed when I knew the lyrics and became the song’s fans so easily. As far as I knew, I Can’t Make You Love Me was the 1991 popular song, written by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin and recorded by Bonnie Raitt on her Luck of the Draw album from that year.

“Oh my God! This song was so amazing! And why I’m not born when this song was out?” My reaction when I heard the original song by Bonnie Raitt, not Adele’s version.

And this song is recommended for you guys who still single like me 😥 and not for couple!

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 lonely 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
