Charted: 1 1
  • 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 to
    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 Writer/s: James Horner, Will Jennings

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesI love the MUSIC VIDEO its like in The Movie "Titanic" where The Titanic crash I see two old couple kissing before they Die! Plus Celine Dion's Voice get high. It just really Tragic Ending for Titanic.
    Celine Dion rocks!!!!!!
  • Raymond from Little Rock, ArIn the Vid on you tube titled "Céline Dion - My Heart Will Go On " @ 3:34 and 4:59 she looks like she's "throwing 3 sixes" she also looks like she is Completely Overwhelmed/Overcome.
    Very Powerful Song.
  • Susie from Burnaby, BcOriginally several Titanic songs were written in french and included with the script. A decision was made however to keep these on a separate Celine Dion album and use only the english song and rest of the score. The story was based off of a newspaper article marking the day in history and how it affected the locals and those abroad with what had happened. Included was this one remark about a woman who fell in love at sea and lost him in the disaster. What isn't main stream knowledge was there was a heart shaped pendant that really existed. I was on a cruise with a bunch of people and got offered tickets by a studio which I had done some writing for under a wide range of pen names so I could maintain some privacy(you have NDA's and rep agreements with studios, actors, etc). Anyways on this cruise a prince of one of the arab countries gave someone a special piece of jewelry. It was a ruby heart which his grandpa had made for him(at the time due to its size it was a named gem). There was a problem family on this trip mostly due to the antics of their family member the actor (Jason) who was later known as Jonathan Brandis(Robbie Benson another one of their family was sort of behaving except for all the women). Jason stole the necklace and tossed it overboard. This didn't only made a few people mad. But also got his family in trouble for not dealing with his brat stage very well. I wasn't the only writer on this cruise. My cousins were too busy to go on it at the time.(Steven Spielberg, Leslie Anderson - voice acting/production, Lari, & Terri) So I went with some other family on the trip.

  • Karen from Manchester, NhI am #6 of 7 children, with 4 brothers and 2 sisters. At my parents' 50th anniversary party, when this song played, I danced with my father. It was the first time I had ever danced with my father (I didn't have a traditional wedding, so I had no "daddy/daughter" dance) and, as we danced, I sang along with this. It was also the first time I had ever sang to my father. Needless to say, the song holds a special place in my heart because of all that.
  • Bill from Pensacola, FlI can't believe the most amazing fact about this song is not here,
    This song almost didn't happen.
    according to IMDB trivia:

    James Cameron was adamant about not including any song in the movie, even over the closing credits. No singing. But composer James Horner secretly arranged with lyricist Will Jennings to write it and singer Céline Dion to sing it, the tape was then presented to Cameron.
    We all know what happened next.

  • Slik from Land Of Awesomeness, AustraliaOutstanding piece of music, an inspiration, a historic movement, captures the inbuilt musical senses. I'll put it on now and have a cry..
  • Ivana from Baltimore, MdI just adore this song!!! It's so beautiful and it just makes me cry because I can relate to it since I've seen the Titanic and I have a relationship as well. The song just seems to pertain to my relationship with my boyfriend with all the things love has gotten us through.It really is the song of our relationship and it's just so bittersweet!!!Also, Celine Dion sings it so beautifully!!!
  • Sukumaran from Singapore, SingaporeAn awesome song coupled with the memories of my late father and late godson. Time to move on. Thank you Will Jennings for the meaningful lyrics and Celine Dion for the fantastic performance.
  • Edwin from Vancouver, BcO.K. she can sing... but get the woman some better material!
  • Spencer from Palm Harbor , FlNew Found Glory did a cover of this song they ruined it
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceThis was certainly one of the most over-played ballads of the year. However, if you listen once again, the song is beautiful, and Celine Dion is one of the most reliable voices in the business.
  • Elmer from Honolulu, Hibest song for celine dion
  • Lee from Blacksburg , VaThis song fills me with hope for longevity.
  • Nage from Boston, Mai think that this song represents romeo and juliet and how the love and the emotion's. And the words that they use

    -tia boston, ma tech boston academy! class of 2010

  • Michelle from Darlington, EnglandThis song is good, but whenever i hear it i feel like crying. I probably start to feel like crying because i've watched the film titanic and i hate songs that's somehow related to death. (If that didin't make any sense don't blame me.) Hopefully you know what i mean.
  • Matija from Zagreb, CroatiaIt's an awesome song. Celine Dion has a beautiful voice. Great job - now is she'd only written it too... oh well
