Perhaps Love Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Best Of John Denver

This song appears on ten albums, and was first released on the Seasons of the Heart Album, where John sings it solo. It has also been recorded on the Greatest Hits Vol 3, Favourites, John Denver (Italian), The Very Best of John Denver (Double CD), Country Classics, The Country Roads Collection and The Rocky Mountain Collection Albums in a duet with Placido Domingo. A new studio version appears on the Love Again and A Celebration of Life Albums.

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 close
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And dont 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 dont know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of change
Like a fire when its 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

One day while working out in the yard this song came on the radio. I thought I was alone as it was early in morning so I began to sing alone. I did not know that the neighbors daughter was in the yard and heard me. She said it was a very moving song and she liked my voice and would I mind if I sang it at the church for her wedding in June....Guess I'll have to practice..........

It's timeless!
Luv... this song is for you.
Self sacrifice is my gift of love which means "letting you go" for the one who you really belongs... Someday, Somehow, Somewhere our love will bind us back in our own time. Perhaps love will lead us back together...forever... Iloveyou!

Precious, Lovely Tess. These words capture my love for you, in words more beautiful than I could ever say. I love you, even more. You are perfect for me. God bless my Tess....Always. I love you.

this is the song my mother walked down the aisle to at my wedding. she was a woman u couldn't get close to, maybe i didn't try. Perhaps Love was a beautiful description of it, which I didn't realize at the time. also, Annie's Song was the song my husband & I danced to at that wedding. I miss John very much.
by Laurie M. on 6/27/2012 1:48pm
I just heard this song for the first time, even though I have been a John Denver fan for 30 years...I have to say I was deeply moved. So much so that I want it played at my own funeral. Beautiful and precious. John was truly a gift to the world.
