My Heart Will Go On Lyrics


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 till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold you
In my life we'll always 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

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

My Heart Will Go On
  • This was written for the movie Titanic. James Horner came up with the music for this song and scored the film. Horner is a very popular composer of orchestral music, and has written scores for many movies, including Braveheart, Apollo 13 and Aliens.
  • Will Jennings wrote the lyrics. Jennings is a prolific lyricist who worked with Steve Winwood on many of his hits and also wrote songs for Rodney Crowell, Barry Manilow, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Roy Orbison and many others. Jennings told us the inspiration behind the lyrics to this song:
    "James Horner, who I had worked with on other films, asked me to come to his house and consider writing something for Titanic. James told me the story of the script and then played me the theme he had written for the film. The character Rose, looking back over the all those years, caught my imagination and I connected her with a 100+ year old woman, still working, still vital, Beatrice Wood, who I had met a few years before in Ojai, California, an hour or so north of where I lived in Westlake Village. Wood had been an artist in New York before World War I and had lived and worked in France, and wound up in California and finally in Ojai, working as a fine arts potter. My wife and I happened to be in Ojai when the premiere of a film called Mama of Dada, a documentary about Wood's life, was shown and we went to see it and Ms. Wood herself showed up, very much alive and lively, 101+, and talked about the film before it was shown and then received all of the people at the premiere at a hotel across the street from the theatre where the film was shown. When she shook my hand I had such a feeling of vitality and life force - it was like nothing in my life before or since. When James told me the script, I focused on Rose and thought of Beatrice Wood, who was old enough to have been Rose, and I still had the feeling I had of the life force I felt when I touched Beatrice Wood's hand, and it was from this feeling that I wrote the lyric for 'My Heart Will Go On.' When James and I were working on the film, the rumor was that Jim Cameron had gone crazy in Mexico spending too much money and the film would be a big flop. The rumor was wrong. The film was a huge hit. The song was a huge hit. I am still getting over it. Totally unexpected."
  • When Jennings writes song for movies, he often looks at a script or sees a rough cut of the film. This wasn't the case with this song, as he drew inspiration from Horner's narrative. Says Jennngs, "I wrote everything from the point of view of a person of a great age looking back so many years. It was the love story that made the film, of course. It was magnificently done with special effects, the actors were good. But the love story was what it was."
  • According to Jennings, Celine Dion was the first choice to sing this. Jennings and Horner worked together on the 1991 movie Feival Goes West and wrote the song "Dreams To Dream" for the film, which Dion wanted to sing but went to Linda Ronstadt. After he and Jennings wrote this, Horner played it for Dion and she agreed to sing it. (Check out our interview with Will Jennings.)
  • This won the 1998 Oscar for Best Song From A Film and Grammys for Record Of The Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Song Of The Year and Best Song for a Motion Picture.
  • Worldwide, this was the biggest selling single of 1998 and in the UK it sold 1,312,551 copies, making Celine Dion the only woman with 2 million-selling singles in the UK. (The other was 1994's 'Think Twice'.)
  • This was named the best film song of all time in a 2010 survey decided by listeners of U.K. radio station Magic. Runner-up in the poll was Take That's "Rule The World" and in third place came Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."
  • According to Tommy Mottola, who was chairman of Sony Music at the time, Dion didn't want to record this song. He claims that he had to convince her to record the demo, but when she nailed it in one take, they used that demo track on the actual recording since it was so good.
