To Make You Feel My Love
by Garth Brooks

>> When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

>> 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

>> The storms are raging on a rolling sea
Down the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
But you ain’t seen nothing like me yet
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
