Bonnie Raitt

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". Raitt has received nine Grammy Awards in her career and is a lifelong political activist. more »

Where were you when I was fallin' down 
Buzzin' round your heart
Why'd you wait till I was moving on
To come out of the dark
To say I'm what you need 
And you could spend your life with me

Well I can't help you now
(Sorry baby,no I can't help you)
No, I can't help you now
(Keep away, I've fallen in love)
Maybe there was a time
But sometimes time runs out
And I can't help you know

Forty days since I stopped countin' the days
And countin' the ways that I loved you
Good long while since I found
Good enough reasons to stop believin' 
That you are what I really want
And now that you do baby, I don't

But I can't help you know, now
(Sorry baby, no I can't help you)
No, I can't help you now
(Keep away, I've fallen in love)
Maybe there was a time
But sometimes time runs out
And I can't help you know

Now you're sayin' the one you need
And you could spend your life with me
But I can't help you

No, I can't help you now
(Sorry baby, no I can't help you)
I can't help you now
(Keep away, I've fallen in love)
Maybe there was a time
And I wish I could somehow
I can't help you, can't help you know
