Title: Teary Day - "I can't make you love me"
Post by Tracey on Jun 29th, 2005 at 11:00am
Today is a day full of sadness and tears.  

I heard this song on the way back from therapy this morning in the car and let the tears run freely.  

Although this song is more for the loss of a partner/relationship, the words fit for me with respect to my Mum and Brother; the realisation that you'll never love me and I can't make you.

To Mum and my Brother:-

Song: I Can't Make You Love Me 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
And I can't make you love me
If you don't

I'll close my eyes and then I won't see
The love you do not 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

And I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
And 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
And I can't make you love me
If you don't

Ain't no use in you trying
It's no good for me baby without love
All my tears, all these years, everything I believed in

Someone's gonna love me

Wow ~ sounds like you are really having a bad day.  Therapy day is a day to really get things out and feel the feelings.  Not a good day at all.  I hope you are feeling better tomorrow!!  Hang in there!  I know that song and feel the words as well.   They are fitting for what you went through as well.  

Big hugs,
Mandi :)

Was going through some of the poetry I have not read before and was reminded of this beautiful song.

I think Bonnie Rait sang it and George Michael has done a cover too.

It is such a sad and beautiful song and describes many feelings of loss of love in my life.

I hope your days are brighter now than they were when you heard this on the radio Tracey.

Music is such a powerful and emotive gift.

Love JJ.x
