Make you Feel my Love Lyrics

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

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no one there
To dry your tears
I could...

    I think that this song is simply saying that she's so in love that there's nothing that she wouldn't do to have him love her back.

    In my opinion it's a song of heartbreak. She loves someone dearly and wants to show him but she can't. It's probably someone she can't have or someone who doesn't feel the same about her. When she sings I feel her sadness. It's a sad, lonely and helpless feeling when you love someone and have to keep it hidden and bottled up. She just wants to touch him, hold him, kiss him and just love and care for him. What a beautiful voice she has to be able to make the listener feel her sorrow. Such a sad thing when love goes to waste.

    This is a song about a person who is deeply in love with somebody and is desperate to make that love them back, telling the person that they would do anything to make them feel their love.

    This song is about the love I feel for a guy I have never met, never will met and will never be with. I would do anything for him, I’d travel the length of the earth just to look in his eyes or feel his hand touch mine, I’d give up every earthly material possession, just for one kiss. If he knew how much I loved him and could feel it just for a few seconds, he would know those pains in his chest weren’t pains at all, he would know it was his heart wanting to come home. Eveytime I think of him my heart feels like it’s going to jump out of my body. I love him. But he doesn’t love me. I will love you forever D x

    This song makes me think of my love for my children. There isn't anything I would not do for them to make them feel my love.

    For me it's a song about the love of a parent for his baby. New born baby, and what they will do through life.

    It's all about protection and caring, "embrace" "hold you" etc ... who is scared at night and cries ? Who calms down when you hold them ? A baby. there is also the signs of the person being not completely developed ans not as wise of the narrator: "haven't made up your mind yet" etc...
    There is the vocabulary of a baby journey like crawling etc...
    Anyway if you read the lyrics thinking about the love for your baby, and how you will pass through anything to show your absolute love for them, how it passes by protection, by you getting old and wise, how you would like then to one day live the same and therefore have the same thoughts... if you think about how they are the only people than you can promess such an inconditionnal love for ever ... you will see it like i do

    For me this song makes heartbreak because Ived fall in love with a man, but he didn't appreciate my love for him, he always looking for someone only gived temporary love in bed.

    Remember Dylan is a born again Jew - the song is about God
    And who could hug you fir a million years

    I think this song comes from the point of a view of a woman who so desperately wants to love, care for, and be with a man who is hurting. He pushes her away because he doesn't want to hurt her, but she doesn't care... even if she gets hurt it doesn't matter as long as she gets the chance to love him with everything she has. She just wants him to trust her, when she knows trust is hard for him. Her yearning for this man, is slowly tearing her to pieces but she still continues to be there for him in every way that she can. :)

    I miscarried at 12 weeks, this song immensely made me cry when I heard

    "I've known it from the moment that we've met, no doubt in my mind where you belong."

    Ever since then, the rest of the lyrics makes sense. Personally for me, it's the pain of having this great deep love for someone but you will never have the chance to show them, it's the pain of not knowing how this person will love you back.

    i feel like it’s a about a person who lost the love of there life and they just want to hold them close to them again and apologize for everything they did and just be with them one more time but they can’t be he / she is dead or either gone

    For me personally. This is to my daughter. I let her down badly when she was a child, but I allways loved her and allways will.
    I have a terminal illness but I want her to know I love her with every piece of my heart and more than I could ever say.If she ever reads this,she will know who I am." I love you to infinity and beyond.You were my sunshine Allways remember that".

    I wrote the song to be the producer is to be up beat like the drum and obviously to make everything as possibly. I would ask songwriters. Beth would spell the lyrics and let’s write about something like that. I haven’t recording Bethany in the studio.

    It’s about love. Any love. Yes obvi the romantic kind...but also could be about Love for your siblings. Friends. Family. Maybe People you’ve lost that don’t know you miss them so much ...it’s not a cut and dry song about lovers ...it’s about love in general

    To me this song is purely about being in love with a person that doesn’t necessarily not love you back but doesn’t see the fact that you love them. It shows devotion and honesty

    For me, this song is about a man who just proposed and is waiting for the answer to his proposal. In this song, he tells the things that he would do for his loved one just to prove his love and that he could offer more.

    The original song is by Bob Dylan by the way.
