Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go 'til we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I'd hold to
In my life, we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on (why does the heart go on?)
Once more, you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart and
My heart will go on and on

    General CommentAs a big fan of Titanic the movie, it's hard to separate the song from the flick. As a hater of Celine Dion, it's also hard to separate the singer from the song.

    HOWEVER, just taking the song on it's own merits, I LOVE the theme, both musically and lyrically. It's the polar opposite of the traditional message that Harry Nilsson captured in his song when he said, "I can't live if living is without you."

    This is an incredibly positive and healthy song about MOVING ON in life, despite someone you love going away. You can still love and honor the person, but you don't have to be stuck in the past. You don't have to grieve forever. You don't have to give up your life. You honor the person who went away by having a fantastic life, building on what you got from that person, and on what you continue to get from the memory of that person.

    General CommentI think the meaning is pretty clear, which is so bittersweet and beautiful. You love someone, they'll always be in your heart, and I like to think it was about someone dying, not just breaking up. It's more tragic for me that way (also fits its movie better), and that's how I like it. And even though it's supposed to be uplifting, that you will keep on living, it mostly depresses me.

    General CommentIt's made me cry three times in the last 24 hours, because it just recently entered my consciousness again, and I thought of my boyfriend, and how simply lost and in pain I would be if he was ever gone.... :_(
    I came on here expecting people to say how great it was, despite the fact that being overplayed makes it lose some of its value (quantity kills the quality??), but instead you get these people... Titanic is a beautiful love story, with a beautifully tragic ending, and this beautiful song to go with it. I dislike her accent, but otherwise she sings just fine and with so much emotion....

    I swear, by the typos and attitudes of everyone on here, I can tell they're just a bunch of immature assholes who've never known REAL love and never known the pain, real or imagined, of losing that one person.

    General Commentlove lasts forever, even if it's only in memories. you can love again. love leaves us bruised, not broken, despite how we feel at the time.
