I Didn't Sign Up This Week !

Today is Fun Monday. I struggled with what I could possibly post for the assignment. The assignment from Crown Princess at Ooh, a shiny pen was:

Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.


The ONE song that is me.

I thought of one but it doesn't make me smile when I hear it.


It makes me sad.


She doesn't want the soundtrack of my life ... but this one song seems to be right on the money.


I have no idea if when people hear it, they think of me ... I hope not.


I haven't had a very successful track record ...

(I am not smart enough to figure out how to embed the video, so ... this will have to do!!)

I Can't Make You Love Me

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
CHORUS:
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 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

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
CHORUS:
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 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.
Check out everyone else's songs at Ooh, a shiny pen - they are much more "uplifting"

I don't listen to Bonnie Raitt and I have no idea why. After hearing the YouTube though I'm going to be looking her up. What an incredible voice!

I love Bonnie Raitt - and this song in particular. Don't know why but it does speak to me.

I'm adding you to Fun Monday for this week - I hope you find it more fun that last week!
