  • When the rain is blowing in your face
    And the whole world is on your case
    I could offer a warm embrace
    To make you feel my love

    When evening shadows and the stars appear
    And there is no one there to dry your tears
    I could hold you for a million years
    To make you feel my love

    I know you haven't made your mind up yet
    But I would never do you wrong
    I've known it from the moment that we met
    No doubt in my mind where you belong

    I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
    I'd go crawling down the avenue
    And oh, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
    To make you feel my love

    The storms are raging on the rolling sea
    And on the highway of regret
    The winds of change are blowing wild and free
    You ain't seen nothing like me yet

    I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
    Nothing that I wouldn't do
    Go to the ends of the earth for you
    To make you feel my love Writer/s: Bob Dylan

  • Singerofdreams from Nm, UsaTo those who comment about Bob Dylan being Jewish, in the late 70's he became a Christian and recorded several contemporary Christian albums. In the 90's he resumed his rock genre. It was a surprise for many and many doubted it was genuine, thinking it was for commercial gain. He's never recanted or made a statement casting doubt on the validity his late 70's religious epiphany.
    These lyrics can legitimately go both directions, secular and sacred. Bob Dylan is intelligent, deep and spiritual enough to have written with that intention. A number of secular hits have the same dual purpose. Given his devotion this purpose makes sense to me.
  • To Huh? From Wi Re: JesusListen to Dylan's Slow Train Coming album. Or do 5 seconds of research on Bob Dylan and his faith journey.

  • Huh? from Wi, UsaBob Dylan is Jewish, he wouldn't write a song from Jesus' perspective. That is obviously not correct.
  • Amanda from El Dorado, ArI have always, always really dug this song, but never quite felt it. Just another love song..... I heard Adele's version and my obsession began because I discovered it was a Dylan original. I had always heard Bonnie Raitt's cover, which was great. So then I found Bob's and listened and listened. I think it show's his wisdom with age. It's simple, but very moving, maybe thanks to piano and organ (my favs). I personally love the original version because it's less of a sappy love ballad and more desperate and real. Like Dylan's voice, especially at that later point in his career. I hate that it's become the "cover" song. I wanted to keep it to myself. But that's exactly the opposite of why most art is made. This tops my list of wedding songs.
