"Perhaps Love" - Plácido Domingo and Plácido Domingo Jr.

Plácido Domingo and Plácido Domingo Jr. – “Perhaps Love”

The legendary Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo and his son, Plácido Domingo Jr. in duet sing “Perhaps Love”. The closing of the ITunes Festival 2014 at Roundhouse, London.

“Perhaps Love” is a song written by the American singer-songwriter, actor, activist and humanitarian John Denver (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997). It was addressed to his wife Annie Martell (the eponym of his #1 hit “Annie’s Song”) while they were separated and moving towards a divorce. In an interview the day after Denver’s death, Annie said that this is her favorite song of his, rather than Annie’s Song (which she also said she enjoyed).

The song was recorded as a duet by John Denver and Plácido Domingo and appeared on Domingo’s 1981 album of the same title. The orchestra on the track is conducted by Lee Holdridge. The video below features the 1981 recording of song “Perhaps Love”, sung by John Denver & Plácido Domingo.

Lyrics

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of Pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of Pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
