Led Zeppelin - All My Love (1978)




"All My Love" is the sixth song on Led Zeppelin's 1979 album In Through the Out Door. Credited to Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, it is a rock ballad that features a synthesizer solo by Jones. It was written in honour of Plant's son Karac, who died while Led Zeppelin was on their 1977 North American tour.


"All My Love" is one of only two Led Zeppelin songs that Jimmy Page had no part in writing (the other being "South Bound Saurez", also from In Through the Out Door).


In a review for In Through the Out Door (Deluxe Edition), Andrew Doscas of PopMatters described "All My Love" as "the saddest and most heartfelt Zeppelin song." Doscas described the song as "a fitting ode to Plant's son, which hauntingly enough sounds like a foreshadowing of a band on the path to an impending and unforeseeable dissolution.


In an interview he later gave to rock journalist Cameron Crowe, Plant stated that this song was one of Led Zeppelin's "finest moments". However, guitarist Jimmy Page and drummer John Bonham had reservations about the song's soft rock sound.





Lyrics


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

To 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 to dim

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

Is this to end or just begin?


All of my love, all of my love

All of my love to you, oh

All of my love, all of my love, oh

All of my love to you


The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

One voice is clear above the din

Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain

For me, the cloth once more to spin


All of my love, all of my love

All of my love to you, oh

All of my love, all of my love, oh

All of my love to you


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


All of my love, all of my love, oh

All of my love to you


All of my love, ooh yes, all of my love to you now

All of my love, all of my love

All of my love, love, sometimes, sometimes


Sometimes, sometimes, oh love

Hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey

Ooh yeah, it's all 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 to, to you, you, you, yeah

I get a little bit lonely
