Make Your Dreams Come True

Bob Dylan wrote the song ‘Make You Feel My Love’ for his 30th studio album Time Out Of Mind which was released in 1997.  This beautiful song is about regretting not being with someone, and no matter what life throws at you, if you can always be there to offer them a warm embrace, and try to hold you for a million years, or go to the end of the earth for then, to make them feel your love, you can live your life without any regrets.  Dylan is not afraid of being humiliated, ridiculed, or embarrassed and he is not concerned with his dignity, as he is willing to go hungry, get bruised, beaten up and go black and blue, or even go crawling down the avenue, so there is nothing that he wouldn’t do for this love.  True love knows no boundaries and if you really love another person, rain and wind blowing in your face will not deter you from being with them.

Love is the sole inspiration that brings most people together, just like the Captain and Tennille predicted.  Love can make your dreams come true, but it is also a funny thing.  In ancient times, people genuinely considered love to be a sickness.  Parents warned their children against it, and adults quickly arranged marriages before their children were old enough to do something dumb in the name of their emotions.  Falling in love can make you feel all sorts of crazy and wonderful things, as your heart may race whenever your partner is near and you might even get those butterflies in your stomach and so many other things may happen to your body when you fall in love.

Adele decided to cover this song ‘Make You Feel My Love’ on her debut album 19 which was released in 2008.  Adele wrote 9 songs in a short space of time, all about this awful relationship that she was in, but when she heard the Bob Dylan song, she felt that it summed up exactly what she had been trying to say in her songs.  She said that it was weird that her favorite song on this album was a cover, but she knew that it belonged there.

 

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
No, 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
Though winds of change are throwing 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
To make you feel my love
