The Collector´s Series Volume OneThe Collector´s Series Volume One

Release date: Oct 4, 2000Date de sortie: 4 oct. 2000

Despite being designed specifically for the US market, The Collector's Series, Volume One sells over 3 million copies worldwide. It includes several new or rare songs, such as Céline’s previously unreleased performance of The Power of the Dream at the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996.

The album contains 16 songs in five different languages. Two of the songs are in Spanish: Amar Haciendo El Amor and Sola Otra Vez, the latter of which is a breathtaking interpretation of All By Myself. Two are French titles: Pour que tu m’aimes encore and Un garcon pas comme les autres (Ziggy). One is an Anglo-Italian duet: The Prayer with Andrea Bocelli. Another is a Japanese version of Be The Man. And finally the album includes some of Céline’s most beautiful English-language ballads, such as Where Does My Heart Beat Now, Tell Him, Only One Road and Falling Into You.

To the delight of collectors, the album is available in limited edition in France under the title Tout en amour and includes twelve color postcards.

Bien qu’il fût destiné spécifiquement pour le marché américain, The Collector's Series, Volume One s’est tout de même écoulé à plus de 3 millions d’exemplaires à travers le monde. On y retrouve plusieurs titres inédits ou rares tels The Power of The Dream, que Céline interpréta aux Jeux olympiques d’Atlanta en 1996, et qui ne figure sur aucun album précédent.

Sur cet album, on entend Céline chanter dans cinq langues différentes. On retrouve deux chansons en espagnol : Amar Haciendo El Amor et Sola Otra Vez, une époustouflante interprétation d’All By Myself. Deux titres en français (Pour que tu m’aimes encore et Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy)), un duo anglo-italien (The Prayer avec Andrea Bocelli), une version japonaise de Be The Man et plusieurs incontournables en anglais telles Where Does My Heart Beat Now, Tell Him, Only One Road et Falling Into You.

Offert en édition limitée en France sous le nom Tout en amour, l’album incluait au grand bonheur des collectionneurs, douze cartes postales couleur.

    The Power Of The Dream (As performed at the Opening Ceremony)

    Deep within each heart
    There lies a magic spark
    That lights the fire of our imagination
    And since the dawn of man
    The strength of just “I can”
    Has brought together people of all nations

    There’s nothing ordinary
    In the living of each day
    There’s a special part
    Every one of us will play

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    As the world gives us its best
    To stand apart from all the rest
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    Your mind will take you far
    The rest is just pure heart
    You’ll find your fate is all your own creation
    Every boy and girl
    As they come into this world
    They bring the gift of hope and inspiration

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    There’s so much strength in all of us
    Every woman child and man
    It’s the moment that you think you can’t
    You’ll discover that you can

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    Feel the flame forever burn
    Teaching lessons we must learn
    To bring us closer to the power of the dream
    The world unites in hope and peace
    We pray that it will always be
    It is the power of the dream that brings us here

    The power of the dream
    The faith in things unseen
    The courage to embrace your fear
    No matter where you are
    To reach for your own star
    To realize the power of the dream


    (David Foster / Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds / L. Thompson)

    Where Does My Heart Beat Now

    So much to believe in – We were lost in time
    Everything I needed I feel into your eyes
    Always thought of keepin – Your heart next to mine
    But now that seems so far away
    Don’t know how love could leave without a trace
    Where do silent hearts go?

    Where does my heart beat now
    Where is the sound
    That only echoes through the night
    Where does my heart beat now
    I can’t live without
    Without feeling it inside
    Where do all the lonely hearts go

    Candle in the water – Drifting helplessly
    Hiding from the thunder – Come and rescue me
    Driven by hunger – Of the endless dream
    I’m searching for the hand that I can hold
    I’m reaching for the arms that let me know
    Where do silent hearts go?

    I know that out there somewhere
    He waits for me
    Someone who’s searching just like me
    Then one touch overcomes the silence
    Love still survives
    Two hearts needing one another
    Give me wings to fly
    I hear my heartbeat now
    I hear the sound
    Hear it echo through the night

    I feel my heart beat now
    Now that I’ve found
    The feeling lives inside
    I’ve got someone to give my heart to
    Feel it getting stronger and stronger and stronger
    Hearts are made to last
    Till the end of time


    (Robert White Johnson / Taylor Rhodes)

    Us

    I want to know why
    You're letting this die
    Without the blink of an eye
    You say that you need time
    I say you'll be fine

    If you would only see
    Like you did before
    You became imprisoned
    Can I reopen the door

    You say it doesn't matter
    Then tell me what does
    And why that isn't what
    You've been thinking of
    You say it's never easy
    Then tell me what was
    Is it never worth the pain
    Could you believe it was
    When life keeps living
    That's what life keeps giving
    To us

    Once we were one mind
    Drifting in one time
    And ever true
    We were friends
    But something is gone from my
    Picture of this life

    If we could only see
    Like we did before
    We became imprisoned
    Can I reopen the door

    You say it doesn't matter
    Then tell me what does
    And why that isn't what
    You've been thinking of
    You say it's never easy
    Then tell me what was
    Is it never worth the pain
    Could you believe it was
    When life keeps living
    That's what life keeps giving
    To us

    The hope has vanished from your eyes
    You were my faith and one truth
    There's every reason to get through
    And you're why I know there's a reason


    (Billy Pace)

    The Reason

    I figured it out
    I was high and low and everything in between
    I was wicked and wild, baby, you know what I mean
    Till there was you, yeah, you

    Something went wrong
    I made a deal with the devil for an empty I.O.U.
    Been to hell and back, but an angel was looking through
    It was you, yeah, you
    It's all because of you

    You are the reason
    You are the reason I wake up every day
    And sleep through the night
    You are the reason, the reason

    In the middle of the night
    I'm going down 'cause I adore you
    I want to floor you

    I'm giving it up
    No more running around spinning my wheel
    You came out of my dream and made it real
    I know what I feel
    It's you
    It's all because of you

    You are the reason
    You are the reason I wake up every day
    And sleep through the night
    You are the reason, the reason

    In the middle of the night
    I'm going down 'cause I want you
    I want to touch you
    I want to floor you
    You are the reason, baby

    You are the reason
    You are the reason I wake up every day
    And sleep through the night
    You are the reason, the reason

    Seduces Me

    Everything you are
    Everything you’ll be
    Touches the current of love
    So deep in me
    Every sigh in the night
    Every tear that you cry
    Seduces me

    All that I am
    All that I’ll be
    Means nothing at all
    If you can’t be with me
    Your most innocent kiss
    Or your sweetest caress
    Seduces me

    I don’t care about tomorrow
    I’ve given up on yesterday
    Here and now is all that matters
    Right here with you is where I’ll stay

    Everything in this world
    Every voice in the night
    Every little thing of beauty
    Comes shining thru in your eyes
    And all that is you becomes part of me too
    ‘Cause all you do seduces me

    And if I should die tomorrow
    I’d go down with a smile on my face
    I thank God I’ve ever known you
    I fall down on my knees
    For all the love we’ve made

    Every sigh in the night
    Every tear that you cry
    Seduces me Seduces me
    All that you do ….. Seduces me


    (Dan Hill / John Sheard)

    With This Tear

    With this tear
    I thee want
    I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
    That night in the restaurant

    U spoke of love so openly
    And again and again u promised me
    That I’d never leave
    But now you’re gone

    With this voice
    I thee call
    Sometimes I catch myself
    Calling your name
    When you’re not there at all

    Please tell me what I did wrong
    Why must I hear your voice inside my head
    All day and all night long
    It’s not fair

    (Bridge) (Ad-libs)

    With these arms
    I held u
    When u told me u were dying
    I had less courage it’s true
    And u wrote every day
    Writing about the things
    That we could do
    When your pain went away

    But all that went away was u
    With this tear
    I thee want
    I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
    That night in the restaurant

    With this tear
    I thee want
    I thee want
    I thee want
    I thee want

    With this tear
    I thee want
    I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
    That night in the restaurant

    U spoke of love so openly
    And again and again u promised me
    That I’d never leave
    But now you’re gone

    With this tear

    Falling Into You

    And in your eyes I see ribbons of color
    I see us inside of each other
    I feel my unconscious merge with yours
    And I hear a voice say, "What's his is hers"

    chorus:
    I'm falling into you
    This dream could come true
    And it feels so good falling into you

    I was afraid to let you in here
    Now I have learned love can't be made in fear
    Must begin to tumble down
    And I can't even see the ground

    chorus:
    I'm falling into you
    This dream could come true
    And it feels so good falling into you

    Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
    Finding a belief, falling where you are

    bridge:
    Catch me, don't let me drop!
    Love me, don't ever stop!

    So close your eyes and let me kiss you
    And while you sleep I will miss you

    chorus:
    I'm falling into you
    This dream could come true
    And it feels so good falling into you

    Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
    Finding a belief, falling where you are

    Falling into you
    Falling into you
    Falling into you

    Pour que tu m'aimes encore

    J’ai compris tous les mots, j’ai bien compris, merci
    Raisonnable et nouveau, c’est ainsi par ici
    Que les choses ont changé, que les fleurs ont fané
    Que le temps d’avant, c’était le temps d Que si tout zappe et lasse, les amours aussi passent

    Il faut que tu saches

    J’irai chercher ton coeur si tu l’emportes ailleurs
    Même si dans tes danses d’autres dansent tes heures
    J’irai chercher ton âme dans les froids dans les flammes
    Je te jetterai des sorts pour que tu m’aimes encore

    Fallait pas commencer m’attirer me toucher
    Fallait pas tant donner moi je sais pas jouer
    On me dit qu’aujourd’hui, on me dit que les autres font ainsi
    Je ne suis pas les autres
    Avant que l’on s’attache, avant que l’on se gâche

    Je veux que tu saches

    J’irai chercher ton coeur si tu l’emportes ailleurs
    Même si dans tes danses d’autres dansent tes heures
    J’irai chercher ton âme dans les froids dans les flammes
    Je te jetterai des sorts pour que tu m’aimes encore

    Je trouverai des langages pour chanter tes louanges
    Je ferai nos bagages pour d’infinies vendanges
    Les formules magiques des marabouts d’Afrique
    J’les dirai sans remords pour que tu m’aimes encore

    Je m’inventerai reine pour que tu me retiennes
    Je me ferai nouvelle pour que le feu reprenne
    Je deviendrai ces autres qui te donnent du plaisir
    Vos jeux seront les nôtres si tel est ton désir
    Plus brillante plus belle pour une autre étincelle
    Je me changerai en or pour que tu m’aimes encore.


    (Jean-Jacques Goldman)

    Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy)

    Ziggy, il s'appelle Ziggy
    Je suis folle de lui
    C'est un garçon pas comme les autres
    Mais moi je l'aime, c'est pas d'ma faute
    Même si je sais
    Qu'il ne m'aimera jamais

    Ziggy, il s'appelle Ziggy
    Je suis folle de lui
    La première fois que je l'ai vu
    Je m'suis jetée sur lui dans la rue
    J'lui ai seulement dit
    Que j'avais envie de lui

    Il était quatre heures du matin
    J'étais seule et j'avais besoin
    De parler à quelqu'un

    Il m'a dit: viens prendre un café
    Et on s'est raconté nos vies
    On a ri, on a pleuré

    Ziggy, il s'appelle Ziggy
    C'est mon seul ami
    Dans sa tête y'a que d'la musique
    Il vend des disques dans une boutique
    On dirait qu'il vit dans une autre galaxie

    Tous les soirs, il m'emmène danser
    Dans des endroits très très gais
    Où il a des tas d'amis
    Oui, je sais, il aime les garçons
    Je devrais me faire une raison
    Essayer de l'oublier... mais

    Ziggy, il s'appelle Ziggy
    Je suis folle de lui
    C'est un garçon pas comme les autres
    Et moi je l'aime, c'est pas d'ma faute
    Même si je sais
    Qu'il ne m'aimera jamais.

    Be The Man (On This Night)

    I would fight not to ever fall too deep
    Never sure that love would grow
    Now at night as I lay me down to sleep
    I could never let you go

    And lying here with you, I still can't believe it's true
    Never thought that I would ever find a love
    That lasts forever

    Be the man that's mine
    Find the love that never goes away
    Be the heart I know will be
    The one that beats for me, be the man

    Used to be scared if I would ever get this close
    I'm not afraid to touch you now

    Long before I knew, I'd be making love to you
    I dreamed that maybe I would one day
    Lose myself in someone, someday

    Be the man that's mine
    I always try to find the love that never goes away
    Be the heart I know will be
    The one that beats for me, be the man

    Take me where I have never been
    I will follow you, you'll never be alone
    I will run, run to you
    I never thought that I would ever find a love
    That lasts forever

    Be the man that's mine
    I always try to find the love that never goes away
    Tell me we will always be together
    Make us stay in love this way forever
    Be the heart I know will be
    The one that beats for me
    Wherever you may be
    Always be with me, be the man


    (David Foster / Junior Miles)

    Tell Him

    I’m scared
    So afraid to show I care
    Will he think me weak
    If I tremble when I speak
    Oooh – what if
    There’s another one he’s thinking of
    Maybe he’s in love
    I’d feel like a fool
    Life can be so cruel
    I don’t know what to do

    I’ve been there
    With my heart out in my hand
    But what you must understand
    You can’t let the chance
    To love him pass you by

    Should I

    Tell him
    Tell him that the sun and moon
    Rise in his eyes
    Reach out to him
    And whisper
    Tender words so soft and sweet
    Hold him close to feel his heart beat
    Love will be the gift you give yourself

    Touch him
    With the gentleness you feel inside
    Your love can’t be denied
    The truth will set you free
    You’ll have what’s meant to be
    All in time you’ll see

    I love him
    Of that much I can be sure
    I don’t think I could endure
    If I let him walk away
    When I have so much to say

    I’ll

    Love is light that surely glows
    In the hearts of those who know
    It’s a steady flame that grows
    Feed the fire with all the passion you can show
    Tonight love will assume its place
    This memory time cannot erase
    Blind faith will lead love where it has to go

    Never let him go

    The Prayer (Duet With Andrea Bocelli)

    I pray you’ll be our eyes, and watch us where we go
    And help us to be wise in times when we don’t know
    Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
    Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
    To a place where we’ll be safe
    I pray we’ll find your light, and hold it in our hearts
    When stars go out each night,
    remind us where you are
    Let this be our prayer, when shadows fill our day
    Help us find a place, guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we’ll be safe
    A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
    And every heart that’s broken will be mended
    And we’ll remember we are all God’s children
    Reaching out to touch you
    Reaching to the sky
    We ask that life be kind, and watch us from above
    We hope each soul will find another soul to love
    Let this be our prayer, just like every child
    Who needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we’ll be safe
    Needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we’ll be safe

    Amar Haciendo El Amor

    Sola en mi silencio andaba en la ciudad
    El calor de tu mirada me hizo despertar
    De ese largo sueño de esa soledad
    caminar junto a tu lado era natural

    Contigo me escapé del mundo a otra dimensión
    En tus brazos yo sentía que perdía la razón
    El miedo de entregarme con tu piel se me borró
    Y en mi corazón por ti se despertaba el amor
    como despierta una flor
    cuando el viento la acaricia
    y se entrega ante el calor

    Se despertaba el amor
    con esta loca pasión
    junto a ti descubro lo que es
    Amar haciendo el amor

    Fuimos descubriendo secretos de los dos
    Y así entre risa y lágrimas el sol nos
    Encontró

    Somos dos extraños que el cielo confesó

    Amantes que el destino sedujo sin control

    Como un dia soñe
    Cuando el sentimiento es tan profundo entre el hombre y la mujer
    Cuando es de verdad cuando sientes mas
    y el deseo llega más adentro

    Only One Road

    I'm looking back through the years
    Down this highway
    Memories, they all lead up to this one day
    And many dreams lost along the way
    Haunt me still
    I guess they always will
    When love was too much to bear
    I just left it there
    But here I stand face to face
    With this heart of mine
    Livin' without you I only fall behind
    We had a love most people never find
    All this time I never realized
    And the courage I finally found
    Has made me turn around

    (Chorus)
    There is only one road I'm walkin'
    Only one lifetime one heart to guide me
    Only one road I'm walkin'
    But I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back
    ‘Cause I need you right here
    Beside me

    I can still hear the song of your laughter
    I can still taste the sorrow of your tears
    We said goodbye but our hearts did not hear
    Now my love there's nothing left to fear
    With all my heart put me through
    It leads me back to you

    (Chorus)

    (Chorus)

    I'm gonna run back, I'm gonna run back
    ‘Cause I need you right here
    Beside me

    That's The Way It Is

    I can read your mind
    And I know your story
    I see what you’re going through (yeah)
    It’s an uphill climb
    And I’m feeling sorry
    But I know it will come to you
    Don’t surrender
    ‘Cause you can win
    In this thing called love
    When you want it the most
    There’s no easy way out
    When you’re ready to go
    And your heart’s left in doubt
    Don’t give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that’s the way it is
    When you question me
    For a simple answer
    I don’t know what to say (no)
    But it’s plain to see
    If you stick together
    You’re gonna find the way
    So don’t surrender
    ‘Cause you can win
    In this thing called love

    Chorus

    When life is empty
    With no tomorrow
    And loneliness starts to call
    Baby don’t worry
    Forget your sorrow
    ‘Cause love’s gonna conquer it all


    (M. Martin / K. Lundin / A. Carlsson)
