Heard it in a love song...

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 evening shadows and the stars appear
And there's is no one 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
There's 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
There ain't nothing' that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on a rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothin' like me yet

There ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
Make you happy make your dreams come true
To make you feel my love

I cannot tell you how much this song means to me.....I remember the first time I ever heard it playing on the radio. I had just came in from running errands and doing some shopping when I came in and turned on the is everything to me, it is the one constant noise in my everyday life (Children aside! lol)

First the melody caught my attention and then the lyrics just blew me away, I immediately connected with that song and tears slipped quietly down my moved me that much. In the end I found out that is was on the soundtrack from the movie "Hope Floats" and it was sang by Garth Brooks. He sang that song from his heart and his talent for telling a story put to music is what made me an instant fan. I found out later that the song was written and originally song from another great story teller Bob Dylan.

Music has a way of defining how we feel, it also has the power to take us back in time whenever we hear something from our past....A song can take me back to a concert, to a broken heart, to a dance floor and sometimes a song has the power to remind someone of what true love is all about.......I love you Jim!

I have been a long time fan of Brother Bob Dylan.
He is too too much.

It is one of my favorite love songs. I don't think anyone could sing it any better than Garth Brooks did.
