"Nobody 'Cept You" as written by and Bob Dylan....
There's nothing 'round here I believe in
'Cept you, yeah you
And there's nothing to me that's sacred
'Cept you, yeah you

You're the one that reaches me
You're the one that I admire
Every time we meet together
My soul feels like it's on fire
Nothing matters to me
And there's nothing I desire
'Cept you, yeah you

Nothing 'round here I care to try for
'Cept you, yeah you
Got nothing left to live or die for
'Cept you, yeah you

There's a hymn I used to hear
In the churches all the time
Make me feel so good inside
So peaceful, so sublime
And there's nothing to remind me of that
Old familiar chime
'Cept you, uh huh you

Used to play in the cemetery
Dance and sing and run when I was a child
Never seemed strange
But now I just pass mournfully by
That place where the bones of life are piled
I know somethin' has changed
I'm a stranger here and no one sees me
'Cept you, yeah you

Nothing much matters or seems to please me
'Cept you, yeah you
Nothing hypnotizes me
Or holds me in a spell
Everything runs by me
Just like water from a well
Everybody wants my attention
Ev'rybody's got something to sell
'Cept you, yeah you

    General CommentOne of the most simple yet heart wrenchingly true-to-life meanings a song could have - his girl is his everything.


    "Used to run in the cemetery
    Dance and run and sing when I was a child
    And it never seemed strange
    Now I just pass mournfully
    By that place where the bones of life are piled
    I know somethin' has changed"

    Just, wow.



    One of the most amazing/underrated songs of all time.

    General CommentThis is a really beautiful, subtle love song. I completely agree with phlemmo, that this is one of Dylan's most amazing yet underrated songs.

    General CommentGod this great. On paper it sounded so simple but hearing it is really a different thing. Love it.

    "There's a hymn I used to hear
    In the churches all the time
    Make me feel so good inside
    So peaceful, so sublime
    And there's nothing that reminds me of that
    Old familiar chime
    Except you."

    That's so perfect for being in love. All your favorite memories and the way they made you feel in the past, all encapsulated into one person and how they make you feel now.
