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 'til 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 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
