To Make You Feel My Love

After yesterday's rant, I thought I would share with you my softer side.

I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business, listening to Pandora. Adele's version of To Make You Feel My Love came on and all of a sudden I was overwhelmed with emotion. I first heard this song many years ago in the movie Hope Floats, as sung by Garth Brooks, and it has always been a favorite of mine. Today I really listened to the lyrics and it struck me that this song speaks to the sacrificial nature of love and all I could do was think about my unborn child and what I would do to protect her.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there 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
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go blind for you
I'd go crawling down the aisle for you
There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

There ain't nothing 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

With lyrics as good as these it should come as no surprise that they were written by Bob Dylan. As I listened to the song I couldn't help but cry, and then I welled up again as I was typing the lyrics.*

Enjoy the video.

*This, I'm blaming on the hormones. And the awesomeness of Dylan.


  1. Ok so if your blaming your pregnant hormones what's my excuse?! I totally teared up after reading the lyrics and then listening to the song. Such a GREAT song! :)

  2. Ha ha ha ha. Yeah, you'll be taken over by emotion the first six months. You'll be better able to handle them in the last trimester. I couldn't watch any mother-daughter movies without turning into an emotional blob.*This should have been my first clue that I was having a girl.* Then your little person gets here and you're all falling in love. Then they spit-up, poop, grab your hair and pinch you. And you're all like "You are sooooooo outta my house at 18!"

  3. Okay, I am not pregnant, and that is one of my favorite songs, but I never thought of it that way. As soon as you hold your baby, you will never be the same. Carrying it is so special in that you bond for 9 months before you ever really see it (minus U/S), but when you see your baby and hold your baby, it will rock your world in the most amazing way. It's awesome! Thanks for sharing.
