 READ THE LYRICS

PERFORMANCE TIPS:

Length of song: 3:24

Song style/genre: Midtempo rumba

Key(s): E major

Note range (Low/High): B below middle C to E an octave above middle C

About the song: This sweet and simple rumba is an unabashed love song in which one partner, in effect, proposes marriage to the other over the course of the song. The protagonist knows well that there are differences between them, but what matters more are the bonds of love they share. The song can be done as a duet, as in the video above.

Gender point of view: Irrelevant. Though written from the point of view of a man, it can be sung by a woman as well with a few changes to the closing lines.
