It Makes No Difference

Lyrics: Robbie Robertson
Music: Robbie Robertson

Sung by Grahame Lesh with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in 2013.

It makes no difference where I turn
I can't get over you and the flame still burns
It makes no difference, night or day
The shadow never seems to fade away

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door
Now there's no love as true
As the love that dies untold
But the clouds never hung so low before

It makes no diff'rence how far I go
Like a scar the hurt will always show
It makes no diff'rence who I meet
They're just a face in the crowd on a dead-end street

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

These old love letters, well I just can't keep
'Cause like the gambler says, read 'em and weep
And the dawn don't rescue me no more

Without your love I'm nothing at all
Like an empty hall it's a lonely fall
Since you've gone it's a losing battle
Stampeding cattle, they rattle the walls

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

Well, I love you so much, and it's all I can do
Just to keep myself from telling you
That I never felt so alone before
