Cher - After All (Love Theme From Chances Are)

[Verse 1]
Well, here we are again
I guess it must be fate
We've tried it on our own
But deep inside we've known
We'd be back to set things straight
I still remember when
Your kiss was so brand new
Every memory repeats
Every step I take retreats
Every journey always brings me back to you

After all the stops and starts
We keep coming back to these two hearts
Two angels who've been rescued from the fall
And after all that we've been through
It all comes down to me and you
I guess it's meant to be
Forever you and me, after all

[Verse 2]
When love is truly right
(This time it's truly right)
It lives from year to year
It changes as it goes
Oh, and on the way it grows
But it never disappears

"After All" is a 1989 Billboard Hot 100 number six hit song performed as a duet by American singer and actress Cher and American singer and bass player Peter Cetera (former lead vocalist of Chicago), released on February 21, 1989 by Geffen Records. It was used as the love theme for the movie Chances Are and was nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards 1989. The song was also the first North American single (promo in the rest of the world) release from Cher's twentieth album Heart of Stone. The song was featured on Peter Cetera's album You're The Inspiration - A Collection . The single peaked at number six in the United States and Canada, the only two countries where the song was officially released. However, it did manage to enter some European charts due to airplay, including Ireland, where it peaked at 24, and the United Kingdom, where it reached 84. "After All" also became Cher's first number one hit on the Adult Contemporary chart in the United States.[1] It was ranked #79 on US Billboard Year-end Hot 100 singles of 1989.[2] The song found strong success stateside, but no video was ever made to further promote it. Peter Cetera and Cher recorded this song separately. There is no footage of Cher and Cetera ever performing this song live together. Although the song was nominated at the Academy Awards 1989, that year was the only time between 1945 and 2010 that Best Original Song nominees were not performed at the ceremony. Cher performed a solo version of the song during her Heart of Stone and Love Hurts tours. She then performed it with her keyboardist / musical director, Paul Mirkovich, for her Believe and Farewell tours. She currently performs it in her latest concert Cher at the Colosseum. These particular performances would accompany a video montage of Cher in film, which would start before the song begins.
