And now a word from our sponsor ...

This song, here covered by Adele, has taken off recently.  Written by Bob Dylan, on first glance it appears to be a simple love song - and it is.  But of course, being Dylan, it goes deeper as it comes from his great album, Time Out of Mind.  It's not hard to imagine the Lord himself sings this to you.  Because He does.

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 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
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ 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

B. Dylan
