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, donэt patronize - don't patronize me

Cause I can't make you love me if you donэt
You can't make your heart feel something it wonэt
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 donэt

I'll close my eyes, then I wonэt 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 wonэt
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

Ain't no use in crying, baby.

    It's true! It really hurts when you love someone who can't love you back. But like what they say love is never selfish. So if you truly love that person you should set him/her free even if it's killing you inside. It's better to be hurt for now than forever. ^_^ juliboi

    Letting go because you love that person so much, you just couldn't keep him/her... 'cause deep in your heart you know that he/she can't love you back...

    It hurts. The song made me teary-eyed. Yeah, you cant make someone love you if somebody already owns him/her. You might be better than the person he/she loves but his/her heart would still long/cling to that someone. Reality hurts but that's life. It's better to move knowing that you dont have chance than keep on loving him and always ending up crying.
