I Can't Make You Love Me Lyrics
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...

She's a woman in love.
But she doesn't know how to express that love. She believes she's not loved in return. Perhaps her lover needs a different expression of love. This goes unrecognized. In her silence she gives up much too soon. Maybe they both have broken hearts with too much silence.

Not being loved back, the sad hearted lover, after one final moment, will take her life.

It means that no matter how much of your heart you pour unto someone else, you can't manipulate the way they reciprocate.. Sometimes, they just don't love you. And can't love you the way you need them to.
