Adele – 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 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 and
I'd go crawling
Down the avenue
You Know 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
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, To make you feel my
love

    This song to me is about an unconditional, and powerful love for another person. In my case its the love I have always felt for my daughter, Ali. She was always this extraordinary person with such a she was beautiful, inside and out, she was smart, she was very funny, she was extremely thoughtful, and compassionate! She would do anything for anybody. She was always happy, and wanted everyone else to be happy too. If anyone she knew, loved, or cared about was in trouble, she was always there to do whatever it was she could do to help. Even if she didn't know you, and you asked for her help, she would give it. She loved her entire family so much, she never missed any event. She spent time with her 92 year old great grandmother, all the way down to her little cousins, often going to all of their sporting events. She was a exceptional daughter, step daughter and sister, aunt, granddaughter, niece, friend, and student as well. Anything I may have forgotten, she was great at that too! We lost her to an automobile accident on march 22nd of this year (2013) I am her mother, and I am having the hardest time trying to move forward without her. I speak for our whole family, to her character, and to how truly missed she is and always will be. It is for her, that we all need to strive to move forward, and be happy. That is what she would want for each and every one of us. Ali, we miss you so much, and life will never be the same here on earth. Until the day we meet again, this song is for you!

    Love this cover of the song! When I first listened to it I couldn't tell whether it was meant to be a happy song of expressing love or a sad song about telling someone who doesn't love you, that you love them. I now believe that these lyrics are so well written and powerful that you can really make them any emotion you want. At the moment Adele's version suits my situation better but in years to come I could also use it as a love song. Beautiful lyrics and Adele has an amazing voice.

    This song makes me think of my baby boy, its like a mother could say these words to her child. A mother who loves her child would do anything for them, warm embrace go hungry etc a mother would do these things but I only realised that's what the song meant to me when I held my newborn son. Although everyone interprets a song in there own way and I think it depends who your with or where you are in your life that influences this xx.

    I'm in love with one of my very good friends. I know that he has similar feelings for me, but yet neither of us know what the other is thinking. I'm certain he's doubting it a bit more than I am, and although we haven't talked about the thick tension that's creeping over us I know that this song is exactly how I feel. It's all the words I want to say to him. It's the want and need of someone, so much, and risking the idea of rejection just to show your vulnerability.

    For me this song explains the unexplanable love you have for someone and that you would do anything just to prove how close you are to them I recently sang this song in a contest and when I sang it just reminded me of my friends and family and how I would do anything for them. When adele sings this song she sings it with such emotion you just can't help singing along.

    Me and my dad used to dance around the living room to this song, and when I get married he said this was going to be our "father daughter dance" song. I tear up every time I hear it.
    With that being said, stop trying to force everyone to see what the song is "about". Everyone sees it differently and will have different takes on what the meaning is behind it.

    I used to listen & sing this to my baby bump everyday. I love my husband to the moon & back but the love in this song to me is unconditional & when I listen to it I look at my now 9 month old son & know I would do anything for him to succeed and follow his dreams, how I would die for him. This song is a dedication to my love for my boy.

    Someone really special dedicated this song to me. Whenever I hear this song, all I can think of are the sarifices and risk he is willing to take to prove how much he love me. But then again, in a suden twist of faith. We can't be together. We just can't. ; '(i just hope he knows how much he really mean to me. How much I love him back.

    Honestly, maybe it is just the situation I am in, but I think the meaning of this song is about wanting and loving someone so much that you are willing to be anything they need just to be a part of their life. Trying to stand by them and supporting their decisions even if you think they are wrong. Setteling for being their friend even if you want so much more.

    Through all the tough times when you feel like no one's there to support you I will stay. I'll be there whenever you need me and even if you don't i'll still be there to show you my love. Though you may be hesitant of what I have to offer you don't need to worry. I would never hurt you, I'd do anything for you. I'll put you first. This is so new and different and I want to be the new change in your life. I love you.

    Is it a sin to love? Is it wrong to love those who cannot love you back? You only live once, you never know when your time is up and you never know if you will be alive the next day. While you have the opportunity to love the ones you love, you might as well love. Unless those you love hates you, despises you, disgusted at you, is sick of you, will put you in imprisonment, then stop and never show your face to them until to the end of your life.

    You may know that the person isn't ready to except the love you feel for them but now that everything's going wrong and they need someone you will open your arms and heart to protect them. You will do everything in your power to make them feel your love. Even if that person hasn't told you what they feel or want. You just want to love them even if it takes the world.

    You'll be there for that person you love, no matter what. Even if they say they don't love you back and just need someone there for them, or just don't realise that they do actually love you or how much you mean to them. However, you let them take you for granted, because you need them in your life in whichever way or form. You're hoping for a second chance, and would do anything to get one, because you're so sure you'll make them happy and won't go wrong. You just want them to know that, but don't know how you can show them.

    This song is so special to me- my baby was in intensive care after open heart surgery as a newborn for 3 months, and I longed to hold him and knew I would do anything for him- this song expressed how I felt at that time. He's 9 months old now and back home, still brings tears to my eyes to hear this song! I think the post below is right- it speaks to me about unconditional love for your children.

    You generally don't write/sing a love song if you are sure it's going well. You really don't need it. You're already in heaven. That's why people are picking up the sadness, especially from Adele. But, it's strong in the song too. I love the phrase "highway of regret". And traditionally, it is a bad sign, if she/he is not sure yet.
    A great song sung by a great singer. I hope she sings forever.

    Few people seem to know that this song was written by Bob Dylan. I think some people think Adele wrote it. She does a beautiful version, but Dyaln's own vocal on the album Time out of Mind is heartbreakingly beautiful and poignant, sung in his 60 year old husky voice. It brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it, whereas Adele's cover is lovely, but it did not move me as much as Bob's did.

    The song takes a woman's point of view on the one man she knows is the one. However, he doesn't see it the way she does. He has feelings for her, but he also has feelings for another. This song is a way of her telling him how deep her love truly is. She is saying that she would do anything for him to show him how deep her love is. She tries to convince him that she is the one for him.

    This is a song about self-less love and making the lover the most important part of your life. Laying down your life for your lover. And not just idyllic love. The lyrics speak to the reality that life is filled with turbulence and change. And in spite of the crazy world we live in, the lover will be surprised at how deep the giver's love truly is. That is the perfect union. Receiving the love that is given. This is what the giver believes will fulfill their lover completely.

    But. What do you do when you love, and aren't loved back? It's not as if you like someone and you say 'oh, well, that's it. Next one. 'no. "love" is a pretty big word, at least to my mind it is. Every song in the world tells you that you're not the only one who feels things. Yes, you find comfort in music, as you find it in this very song, which is extraordinary, by the way. But you never find solutions anywhere.

    I think it's talking about a person that loves someone with all of their heart but the person they love maybe doesn't love them back or loves someone else. And you're trying to get them to love you back.
    I relate to this because I love a guy named dallas. And I've never loved anyone as much as I love him. But he can't get over his past girlfriend, which happened to be one of my best friends. But she doesn't want him anymore. And I'm trying to get him to see how much I love him and trying to make him "feel my love". And I'm trying to show him that he belongs with me.
    So yea. That's what I think this song is about. :)

    This song is about a person that truly loves someone deeply. They are certain that the two of them should be together. However, the other person is not so sure, hesitant to take the plunge into a loving relationship because they have been badly hurt by another in the past and the wounds are deep. The fear of more pain is paralyzing him/her from taking another chance at love. The person singing the song is making an effort, almost begging, to tell the person how much they love him/her and that him/her can trust again. There is some deep sadness in this song though. I don't think the relationship continues because the fear in the one person is too great. Therefore the person singing the song has deep sorrow because he/she knows that the love will not be returned and it is the love of their life that they will be missing out on.

    I feel like this song is about how someone is feeling down or is doubting the relevency of having a relationship with someone they know, and the person is trying to convince them that it is ok to let him in. He will be there for you anytime you need him and he will take care of you, and he just wants you to understand how much he loves you and he would do anything for you.

    I lie because I am selfish and I wanted someone to fall in love with me. I am ashamed of my past and the things I have done so I lied to the one I love. But when the truth started coming out I didn't know what to do but lie some more. Now I am head over in lies to someone I really love. I pushed him away. There really isn't anything I wouldn't do for him to feel my love and for him to trust me again.

    Such a beautiful, emotional song. Has a particularly strong meaning for me right now, when I think of my boyfriend in mozambique (we've been apart for almost 10 months), because I can't go back to mozambique until this summer. Always makes me cry when I hear it, and think how much I miss him and how much it hurts being away from him, but also the fact that he's waiting for me and soon we will be reunited.

    For me, this song is the most pure love. I sing this to my son all of the time. And I've never heard a song (i'd actually never heard this song before adele's version came up on my pandora) that is everything that I'd ever want to say to my son. We're going through some tough times. This brings me hope as well.
    "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".

    The meaning of this song is two sided I believe. It can be geared towards someone who is in a relationship but having issues or it can be towards someone who is a friend and you are afraid to make that next step because they are afraid of ruining a good friendship. I love this song. Even before adell covered it. It is a song of love and sorrow and it has a huge meaning to me. I had a wonderful friend and he and I decided that we were okay being friends. However, he found out he was terminal with cancer. We moved our friendship up a notch because we both had such strong feelings towards one another and it just so happened that we were driving in my car and this song came on the oldies station and I had to pull over the car and just sobbed uncontrolably. He died shortly after we told each other how much we loved one another and I will never forget that no matter what.

    Wow this is weird. Ummm. I think the meaning of this song is the person saying it is trying to show their loved one how much they would do for them. When I hear adele sing this song it shows how me that I should appreciate having someone there someone love me. She is a great inspirational women we should all love as she sings from her heart not her mind!

    To me: it is my story now. That I live each and everyday. Missing and longing for that one person I love so truly in my heart. The one I've done everything for. Said everything for. The one person I spill my heart out for. And hoping that in return i'll someday be able to feel that person once more. Close to my heart. Hoping to hear those sweet words like I did before. To me. That's only part of it. But in all honesty, there really isn't one thing. I wouldn't do. To make him feel my love.

    This song is mixed emotions of desperate, hurt and love, showing that no matter what happened in their relationship, she will always be there. She express her feelings with actions & sincerity to the guy, hoping one day that the guy will hold and stay forever, even though it hurts knowing, that the guy that she loved wasn't unsure with his feelings. But she's desperately still trying and fighting her very best to feel and show how much she truly deeply in love with him. Addie; d

    I prefer to think that it isn't desperation. It is real love and happiness in her part. She merely desires to let him know how much she loves him and she is telling how she could love him. How wonder full it will be for them. The part says " i know you haven't made up your mind yet. " I speculate the guy has feelings for her but he is uncertain with her and she had his heart broken because there's a part that says " the storms are raging on the rolling sea and on the highway of regret. "

    I choose to believe this is a lover trying to convince the other partner to just jump in and see how wonderfull it will be. One part says"i know you haven't made your mind up yet. " adele makes it seem like such a desperate plea for her love to take a chance with her, a chance she already knows they will not take, that is the desperation I hear in this song.

    I love this song and it's someone telling the person she loves what she would do to make him see and feel how much she loves him. At this time, I miss the man thati love, we had a misundertanding and i; ve always been jealous of other women when I know there is no reason for me to be jealous. He swore to me over and over tha he loves me but I am so insecure. I guess he got tired of it so now we have not spoken in 3 months. I still love him very much and miss him but I don't know what to do. I don't want to make the first move because I was afraid that wont take me back. I really love you, H. C. , and I want to prove it to you this time. I hope you're missing me too.

    A guy told me he was drawn to me the first time we met, I am not too sure about my feeling for him, so he dedicated this song to me. The first time I listened to it, I cried. The song is so emotional, I could feel how much he really loves me. I listen to it over and over again and every time I play that song, I have goosebumps all over me.

    I think make you feel my love is about someone who is afraid to love because maybe they've been hurt before but there is someone who really loves that person and really wouldn't do anything to hurt that person and they're just trying to make the hurt person realise that just because one of their relationships didn't go well doesn't mean all of their other ones will fail.

    It is a song about the great lengths someone would go to prove their love for another. That they would be there when no one else would when times get hard. How anything would be done to make the other feel love from them. How they know that they can make the other person happy if they would just let them. They know that no other person will and has ever loved them like they do. They would do anything to prove that.

    I take this song in my heart because well, I text and message my crush, but we rarely talk in person and I relly would like him to know how much he means to me. I'm not the preetiest girl in school but I'm human and have feelings too. And whenever we talk it seems like he likes me too but none of us make a move and I want him to know like how the song says that I will be there for him no matter what. Because he has a spot reserved in my heart.

    I beleive that the song is about someone who is trying to win his/her heart. And even on the toughest time he or she will always be there for them to show their love toward them. Or if ur in a situation when you want to let that someone know that you'll be there for them on their rough times and you want to let him or her know how special they mean to them.

    One night I was having an intense conversation with my 16 year old daughter. She was upset and letting it all out on me. She told me that she resented me and didn't want to take my advice, even if I was right. She was so angry and her words hurt me so much. The next day I was driving to work and couldn't find anything good on the radio. I switched to cd, not knowing what would play. Turned out it was my daughter's adele cd. When 'make you feel my love' started, I hung on every word. The line 'i've known it from the moment that we met, no doubt in my mind where you belong' had me fighting tears. I could see her "fresh out" when she was laid on my belly. The song now serves as a reminder to all of my children, my daughter especially, that I would 'go to the ends of the earth' for each of them.

    This song is about a person that is in love with someone. However, the other person is not sure if they want to be in a relationship. Perhaps this person has been hurt, or has broken up with someone. The lyrics are comfort and reassurance that she'd (adele or whomever) never do anything to hurt the person. This person would go to the ends of the earth to make sure that the other knew, as well as felt how much they are loved. Very sweet, very nice lyrics.

    I believe the lyrics represent someone who has hurt a significant other. "the storms are raging on the rolling seas and the highway of regret" every stanza talks about how much the author would do for that person and how much they love them. They're proving their love any way they can and that might suggest remorse and guilt. They're trying "to make you feel my love" love overpowers mistakes if it is strong enough and the other person can feel that. "you ain't seen nothing like me yet" suggests that the person wants to change and prove themselves worthy. "i know you haven't made your mind up yet" offers a clue to know that the other person has a decision to make. Probably about whether they will take the author back or not. What a beautiful song to simply send out the message that you are still in love with someone, no matter what has happened.

    I think this song is beautiful, adele's cover is just amaing, its my faveourite song of all time. To me it is very meaningful for a number of reasons. Firstly, it brings to mind my gran: currently she is very ill and is not going to get better, this song symbolises everything I want to say to her, everything I want her to know. It also reminds me of my papa, whom I lost two years ago: it was a slow, painful time for my whole family and this song just shows how much you would do for those you love, "i'd go hungry, i'd go black and blue".

    I first heard this song during a desperate time of my life when I feared for my health. I've been christian for many, many years, but have put it on the background and hardly call on it. To me, this song was god reaching out to me and telling me he wanted to make me feel his love. And that morning, when I surrendered to him again, I truly did feel his love.

    It makes me feel sad in a way because its saying that someone wants to share love with another person but he hasent made his mind up and it also makes me sad because she would do anything to be with him but he can't decide and there is so much pressure on him that he crys and I think its just really sad but I love the song still anyway!

    After countless hours of listening to this repeditavly. I finally realize what this song is about. Here's the story. A young girl unconditionally loves this man whole heartedly with an endless amount of passion. But he can't realize how much pain she will go through to make them be together because he likes someone else. But he doesn't realize how much he cares about her too until it's to late. I have known this story better than the back of my own hand. This story is what I live with x10.

    This is how much the spirit, our spirit and god loves us. This is them loving us in song. Open your hearts, let the love in and the tears flow as you feel how much love this actually is. It will refill and remind your soul of what it felt before embarking on this journey in a human body to experience what it needs to feel and learn to be better when it returns to god. Peace, love, joy and grace are within us all. We just need to trust and let it out in our lives.

    You cannot make someone feel your love if they do not wish to. The song reminds me that I have to move on and forget about how she broke my heart. But out of the experience I have found myself again. A hard lesson learned. But she still moves me. When I am alone in my thoughts. And for that. I am thankful for the few moments that I had with her when she let me in.

    I will do anything for you, for you to see how much I love you. Even if you don't love me, I want you to know that I will never hurt you. I could be your one and only. You just have to let me. That's what I think this song means. And can I just say how much I love adele? Oh wait. Words can't describe it. Her music is as beautiful as she is; gorgeous.

    For me, it's. Just love. That's what the song is about. And yearning for love. It's saying "here i am, let me love you. I can ease your burdens. I can soothe your pains. You belong with me; by my side. " I love the stanza 'i'd go hungry-i'd go black and blue, I'd go crawling down the avenue, know there's nothing that I wouldn't do, to make you feel my love'. It's the way I felt about someone once. I would have ripped a mountain apart with my bare hands for them. But, I was crushed. The essence of love itself was put into words. Love isn't just 'in your heart', true love is a part of your soul. Makes me cry. Makes me remember what I had, and that I was truly lucky enough to feel it. I love songs like this.

    For me it is god singing to me. I feel like the struggles she speaks of in the 1st two stanzas is my face is my mother fighting cancer, and he wants to dry my tears and hold me. I haven't completely made my mind up whether or not this "god" can be trusted, however if I do decide to put all my trust in him he could make all my dreams come true.

    I like many at first started thinking about that one great love, but as I sat, and had it on repeat I was sewing and all I could think about was how much I have wanted to be a fashion designer, from the age if 8 that's all I ever wanted, you see how it all came about, I was sitting watching the news with my mom, and a clip from a ck jean fashion show came on the screen, and I remember hearing calvin klein everywhere after that I guess that could all be because my focus on it now, but man all I knew as to me the song really helped me remember for what, and why I am doing what I do, the love, fire, passion, to see the smile on someones face when they try one something I made for them. And the soul and true love miss adele brings to a classic song. My gosh. It would be an honor to some day be you adele if by chance you stumble across this. May god bless and keep you.

    It's a self-less kind of love that she wants to offer to that other. To love means to let yourself die - not in a physical sense, but in a "my all" kind of thing. It sounds kind of morbid but how I've always seen love is the unconditional kind, where you would give your all for that other. Going to the "ends of the earth" for them despite it all (whatever that may be). Love can take many forms, but the kind that I feel when she sings this cover of bob dylan's song is very genuine. I love adele - she puts her emotions into her songs and when she sings it. It makes the song so much more amazing when she does. -mkmi.

    I think she feels just like I feel this very moment, there is a boy in her life who turns her world upside down, but he can't see it. She loves him so deeply and she honestly means every word she sings, she would do anything just for a chance for him to see the love she holds for him. She desperately wants him to realize before it is too late and he falls for someone else she would devote her life to him while he remains oblivious. This song makes me cry because it hurts so much physically.

    I cannot describe the feeling I get when she sings this and when she does I get the immpression that she loves somebody but they don't love her back and she is expressing that through a song. Also this song is expressed through a time of love and dispair for her, I think that this also show something that happened in real life. And that celebrites have the same problems we have (not all the problems!)but I love adele and her songs have true meanings.

    This an amazing song! Such powerful lyrics of love and longing. It is one of best songs written in my opinion because it's about true love. Its telling there very special to you also that you would anything for them. Like someone said before its a song about asking the person you love to give them a chance to show them how happy they can make them. But do you know what it makes me think of twilight, I love the whole bella and jacob thing! Yet it also reminds me of a love triangle I was in once.

    My husband and I have been married 34 years in january 2012, for the last 10 years he has been in a nursing home, after a fall out of his wheelchair made him lose his ear balance and can no longer sit up and spends his days lying horizontal, we are still very much in love and one night at 3am he sent me this song to my mobile phone, I listened to it and cried my eyes out, because after all these years and everything we have overcome together our love moves mountains, and as the song says, there is nothing he will not do to make me feel his love.

    I feel like the singer understands that the one he or she loves is having a hard time-confused, crying, regretting things. Things that perhaps have nothing to do with the singer. But the singer proclaims unending support regardless, and carries the conviction that his or her love is powerful enough to give strength and healing through this hard time. It's not just about loving someone, it's about doing whatever it takes for them to understand that you do--it's about communication, perspective, persistence and acceptance. This is a very brave and selfless love.

    For me, it's about the unconditional love of a woman towards a man. She will do anything for him. But unfortunately, she afraid to tell the man that she loves him so much. Afraid of rejection and frustration. But. When she have the strength to tell her feelings, the man keeps silence. No answer. She used to be his friend, making jokes, laughing together, hang out. But now. It changed, it's like there's a wall that made him and her isolated, ignored. Waiting and waiting until now, give up to make him feel her love. And. . I know its a bit exaggerate but. It's my broken heart story:/

    This song is exactly how I feel towards one boy. It's about a girl, loving a boy so much she could die for him, and him not returning the love, giving mixed signals. That's what happens to me every day. I'm always there for him, always making him laugh and yet he always says no to me. I just wish he'd feel the same, and I believe that's what adele is singing about.

    Do you ever felt like you love someone, and he has no respect for anything that you do. Don't even matter all the material things, you just want a little peace of him, just him, nothing else. And you just can't make him happy, you're just not enough. And you realise that. And than times comes when you just have to think what would make him happy, and you think all about that, not you, just his happiness. It's so hard to understand the beauty of just leting go. To let him fly. Sorry for my english.

    Beautiful lyrics and beautifully sung. It expresses the real sadness from within from a boy or girl who has found true love and he/she is wearing his/her heart on his/her sleeve to such an extent that he/she would die for him/her- just to be held in his/her arms. I think dylan's feminine side wrote this because he found the love in his life but whoever it was passed him by for someone else. I believe he wrote it from a broken heart experience.

    This song is just full of love. Listening to this song calms me whenever I feel weary of everything that is happening to my current relationship. We both love each other but he keeps on making me realize that there's no point in continuing this relationship. I just hope that he would come to his senses and realizes that no man could ever love him like I do. If ever he would sing to me this song, for sure these uncertainties would be erased from my mind.

    What she is in the song is that she was in a relationship and things went bad maybe things were said that both regret but she still loves with all her heart and unconditionally. Basicly there is nothing that she wouldnt do to get her man back she loves him that much. She is telling him all the things that she could do and would do to make things better she is just sorry for what has happend. If she sang this song to me I would take her back in a second.

    I honestly don't think this is a happy love song. I think it's about the torture of unrequited love. The biggest clue is the line "I know you haven't made your mind up yet", but there are subtler ones. The words "could" and "would" appear multiple times, indicating a potential for things that haven't been done yet. It's like she's saying "I COULD do all of these amazing things for you...if you'd let me".

    My anniversary is tomorrow, 9/8/11. It's been a roller coaster decade. Three children later, missing divorce twice, bankruptcy, home (we built) in foreclosure. Quit my job and took another one at a lower salary but the usual gamble of moving a step up in my business. A decade of stress, heartache, heartbreak, no connection, anger, torment, misery, all but "done." but we stayed and sorted things out, took our own journeys and I can honestly say that for the first time in a decade, I feel good about all of this. I have always loved my wife dearly and have always knew it. I'm a lucky man here. The worst of times otherwise but I have an intact marriage, a loving one, the love of my girls. I'm fine. This song makes me weep with such joy, as it speaks to me and says it all.

    The first time I had this song I cryed a tear of joy, I was moved. We shouldnt hold back on our love just because we were hurt. I have th most loving man in my life, he tells me every second that he loves me but I have been holding back. Thank you adele for making me realize that I go hugry, I go black and blue, if I loose him. I love you Thube.

    To me the song is a heartfelt mix of hope and hopelessness at the same time. I first heard it sung by Adele on my way to visit my partner in the psychiatric unit where he was recovering from self-abuse and near-successful attempted suicide. I had to stop the car and cry floods I'd been holding back after weeks of being 'strong'. Anyone who has suffered childhood abuse will understand his lack of self-worth, yet from the moment that we met I found him special, kind, funny, loving and deserving of all I could offer. Sadly, not enough to heal him. Tho' I can't fix him, and maybe he doesn't want to be, this song helps me remember how much he means and gives me strength to be there for him as a best friend, whatever the future brings.

    And if you think about it, it can also be a love song for your children. The 3rd stanza can relate to a teen and how they pull away from their parent, don't trust them, think they don't know anything. But hopefully they eventually come to realize their parent wants what is best for them. As a mom, the moment my children were born, and even before when I felt them first move while I was still pregnant, I knew I would willingly do anything I could for them.

    Although Adele did not write the song, I believe it is not anything close to being an awful cover. Yes, Bob Dylan wrote these wonderful lyrics, and yes, Ronan Keating did a fabulous job covering it, but honestly so did Adele. Her voice is magnificent. And maybe she added a depressing touch to the song, but at least she made it her own. I personally find it tragic that you believe that you'd compare a good, pure, and honest artist like Adele to and over-hyped pop star. This is definitely not in the 'shitty covers' category. If you want to hear a shitty cover. You should've watched Fergie sing with Slash last night at the superbowl. All I am saying is give Adele some credit for this and look at it in a new light. She took Dylan's lyrics and made something of them, and she sang how she felt. This is an example of a heartfelt cover.

    @Emmybell: Adele did not write this! And this is an awful cover!
    The only half-decent cover is Ronan Keating's. Both Bob Dylan (who did write this song) and Ronan Keating manage to show the real emotion; Adele makes it depressing, you said yourself "sad song", it's not. At all. I find it tragic that people only learn about songs such as this when over-hyped pop stars make shitty covers.

    Love the lyrics so much. Every line speaks about love. An unconditional love. Either it's love for someone special to you or love for a friend. Love for someone special but it's just a one sided love. It's hurts but it's just showed how she/he loved the person he/she loves. It also shows the love for a friend that who is down and she/he always be there for him/her to support and help her/him. I'm so touched cause this song make me realized how love is precious. Whether it's for someone special to me or friends or even family. That I have to stand and fight for my love ones from the cruelty of reality.

    I will never give up on my ex girlfriend. She is the only girl I ever want to be with. And everything about this song is true. I knew from the moment that we met that she belongs with me. I love her, and I will marry her someday. She's everything to me. And by that time hopefully it will be legal for us to marry:/ I love her with all my heart.

    This song can be whatever you want it to be and open to people that critisise without passion or feeling. So I believe this song is very personal only to those lucky enough to feel the magic could also mean a relationship that is never going to happen. I am listening to this song continuesley until I know the words because it inspires me as a musician never give up my day will come. Pure magic love you xx.

    Strong and deep song for a person. Based on the interpretations. The person would do anything for this person and letting him know how much she loves him. I also like the interpretation "its about loving someone with all of you and telling them you would do anything for them to be right next to you for all your life. " anyway, this song is a declaration of love for someone, her imagination is so alive. The lyrics explains it all.

    I love keevan patterson and for me to make him feel my love was my only goal. Yesterday wednesday may 9, 2012 I was successful. To make someone feel your love is when you feel you can't live without them. Keevan is my true one and only boo. I adore him with all the love in my heart. I would go any distance for him and he would do the same. Him being alternative school keeps us apart but we get through it together. I would surely die without him in my life. Te quiero baby. Love adri.

    This song is everything I have wanted to tell someone and never knew how to say it to make them understand! So until he understands I will continue to wait for him to put aside his fears that all the other people in his life have made him feel, one day soon he will know that I am his safe place to land. I wont cry or have pity parties until then because I know he sense's that I am what he is needing, it just has to be when he completely lets go of his past fear & pain. Then he will come to me! Fate is a strong word I hold on to it and he knows that fate brought us together :)

    She loves this guy very much. Thoughts of her love is explained in this song. She wants to embrace him, dry his tears, hold him, she is waiting for his reply if he would give them a chance to be together or if he would take her back after parting ways. Her love is sincere. He is engraved in her heart. She'll sacrifice for him. Full of regrets for the things she had done to him and she is asking for his pardon. She wants him to be happy, his dreams be fulfilled and to make him feel her love.

    I assume that there is an age gap between you and her. Age doesn't matter when it comes to love. The main thing is you both have love in your hearts. I assume the soul you truly loved was left by the man who got her pregnant and she only wants the best for her child. All mothers would give up everything just to keep their child loved and protected. If you love her so much and you can't live with out her the best way is to marry her so that she will have an assurance that you would never leave her like her past love and tell her that you would love her child as your own. Or just keep on proving that you have grown as a mature man. Love will find a way. Indifference will find an excuse.

    Its truly an amazing song. When I first heard this song, it was like I became frozen. Its amazing how I could relate to this song in such a way. For 4 years I have been in a off and on relationship. My partner always left me to go back to her ex. And yet I was still there trying to show her that no matter how many times she left I would always love her and will be there when her world started crashing down. I will love til my heart stops beating. But with my last breath that I take I will tell her "i love you"

    This song to me is about a woman in love with a married man who loves her, but is torn between staying with his wife and leaving to be with the woman who loves him like no other woman could - his mistress. She sings it with so much feeling, makes you feel the pain as she sits alone on the bed secretly texting the man who she loves and wants to be with and love for the rest of his life.

    The song words and lyrics is by Bob Dylan, the one and only Mr Z. Any fan can tell it's him, such blasphemy.

    While “Make You Feel My Love” was originally written by Bob Dylan, the first released recording was actually done by Billy Joel, who put it on his Greatest Hits Volume III.

    It is track number 9 from the Bob Dylan album "Time Out Of Mind". At the beginning of Time Out of Mind, Bob Dylan finds himself in the same dead-day world as on 1964's "One Too Many Mornings." By now, though, he can't be bothered to romanticise the street and the distant dogs' barking; he can only moan about how sick he is of love, of himself. Saying it seems to give him the strength to go on, and go on he does, over 11 songs that are among his most plainspoken and musically eloquent. The reconstituted bottle-blues that sparked the early '90s acoustic masterpieces Good As I Been to You and World Gone Wrong carries over to Daniel Lanois's carefully dirty production and a groove that tops anything Dylan's done in a studio since, at least, Blood on the Tracks. No matter how lousy he feels, this is the work of a mighty, mighty man.

    This song is about someone who willing to do anything. Willing to wait for a long time for the one who she love the most. Eventhough the man do not know actually the girl's feeling. How big her love for him. But she always try to do anything to make him feel her love. - appreciate the person who love you the most, maybe someday we gonna miss the every single things that the person done to make you feel their love.
