Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is a renowned American blues singer-songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country, but she is perhaps best known for her more commercially accessible recordings in the 1990s including "Nick of Time", "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the slow ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me".

Darkness settles on the ground
Leaves the day stumbling blind
Coming to a quiet close
And maybe just in time
We've almost lost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind
We've almost lost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind

Time has turned an angry face
Throws a dark eye back to sea
But what will pass for mercy now
We'll practice unforgivingly
As if might and will make right
Or either one could make us free
As if might and will make right
Or either one could make us free

Lovers laugh and cross this way
They're weaving out into the street
It seems we never were so young
Or it was never quite so sweet
But the world is always beautiful
When it's seen in full retreat
The worst of life looks beautiful
As it slips away in full retreat

God only knows that we can we do
No more or less than he'll allow
God only knows that we mean well
God knows that we just don't know how
But I try to be your light in love
Pray that is enough for now
Well I tried to be your light in love
And I'll pray that is enough for now
