"Perhaps Love" as written by and John Denver....
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

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me think of my parents' love for me..especially the parts of "and in those times of trouble" and "even if you lose yourslef".

    General CommentIncredibly beautiful song. It's even better when he sings it with the male opera singer (whose name escapes me at the moment but it begin with "P," I believe). It's a song about love and memories and how memories are comforting. No matter how sh*tty a day or week or month can be, our good memories bring us back to happier times and have a way of keeping us warm and safe. This special song went so unnoticed...
