I Can't Make You Love Me

Lyricist: Michael Reid/Allen Shamblin    Composer: Michael Reid/Allen Shamblin
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 that it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart, I will feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me

I'll close my eyes 'cause then I won't see
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
Morning will come, 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 that it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart, I will feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me
