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 »

I don't' know why it should be so hard
Givin' up this circle dance
Worn out steps from long ago
Don't give love a chance
It's a bitter heirloom handed down
These twisted parts we play

I'm not her and you're not him
It just comes out that way
Can't go back to make things right
Though I wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now
We did the best we could

I'll be home soon, that's what you'd say
And a little kid believes
After a while I learned that love
Must be a thing that leaves
I tried so hard just to hold you near
Was as good as I could be

Even when I had you here
You stayed so far from me
Can't go back to make things right
Though I wish I'd understood
Time has made things clearer now

You did the best you could
Now that this has occurred to me
I just wanted you to know
I've been too faithful all my life
It's time to let you go
