Radio XLVI, side B, track 11: “All My Love” by Led Zeppelin

Led ZeppelinOh, Led Zeppelin, I will admit that I wasn’t really into you growing up.  Honestly, this is probably the only song I heard by you when I was a kid, as hard as that might be to believe.  I’m sure I actually probably heard a lot of your music, at least peripherally, but I didn’t know it was you.  And I know for a fact that this was the only song of yours I ever recorded off the radio when I was a kid.  And that’s all I’m going to write for this post.  You can chalk some of it up to pure laziness on my part, but after listening to this song again after the longest time and following along with the lyrics, it’s clear to me that it would be the height of hubris to think that I could add anything of interest when talking about you since you are obviously about the greatest rock and roll band to ever exist.  So my vow to you, Led Zeppelin, is that if any of your music ever happens to grace this blog ever again, I’m going to just shut up and let your music speak for itself, because it says pretty much everything way more eloquently than I ever could.

“All My Love”

<awesome Led Zeppelin jam>

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light

Ta chase a feather in the wind

Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight

There moves a thread that has no end

For many hours and days that pass ever soon

The tides have caused the flame ta dim

At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom

Is this ta end or just begin

All of my love
All of my love
Oh, all of my love
To you now

All of my love
All of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

One voice is clear above the din

Proud Arianne one word, my will to sustain

For me, the cloth once more to spin

Oh, all of my love
All of my love
Oh, all of my love
To you now

All of my love
All of my love
Yes, all of my love to you, child

<awesome Led Zeppelin jam>

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time

His is the force that lies within

Ours is the fire
All the warmth we can find

He is a feather
In the wind

Oh, all of my love
All of my love
Oh, all of my love
To you now

All of my love
Ohhhh yes, all of my love
To you now

All of my love
All of my love
All of my
Loooooove
Yeeeeah

Sometime, ahhhh

All of my love
All of my love
All of my love
To you now

All of my love
All of my love
All of my love
