give up this fight

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.

-Bonnie Raitt

What is it about music that can so perfectly describe a situation that seems so hard to describe? Just saying it you would feel stupid, but hearing it in song is so beautiful. This made me sad for you. I'm sorry Rebecca.

You know I love this song for my own reasons; it means something completely different for you. I'm sorry you are hurting.
