Falling Into YouFalling Into You

Release date: Mar 12, 1996Date de sortie: 12 mars 1996

Following her two very successful albums (The Colour of My Love and D’eux), Céline outdoes herself once again in one of her most adventurous albums to date, Falling Into You. The album is her fourth in English and quickly becomes a 90s classic. The first single, Because You Loved Me, reaches the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in just three weeks. It's the fastest ascent on the American charts by one of Céline’s songs. The album’s epic opening track, It's All Coming Back To Me Now, is often seen as emblematic of her musical style. It quickly becomes a fan favorite and a centerpiece of her concert repertoire. 

On the album Céline also offers her own take on All By Myself by Eric Carmen and River Deep, Mountain High, a song created by Phil Spector for Tina Turner. Both songs become mainstays of Céline’s concerts. The album includes three English-language adaptations from the French album D’euxI Don’t Know, If That's What It Takes and Fly.

For Falling Into You Céline works with the biggest producers of the time, including David Foster (Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Neil Diamond); Jim Steinman (Meatloaf, Bonnie Tyler, Sisters Of Mercy); Humberto Gatica (Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Robert Palmer); and Ric Wake (Taylor Dayne, Mariah Carey). With their tremendous talent and the magic of French author-composer Jean-Jacques Goldman, Falling Into You wins the Grammy for Best Album of the Year and is certified Diamond in France and Canada; 12 times Platinum in Taiwan, South Africa and Australia; 11 times Platinum in the US; 7 times Platinum in the UK; and multi-Platinum in many other countries.

Falling Into You is a milestone in Céline’s remarkable career and reveals the extent of her vocal and interpretative skills.

Face à l’énorme succès de ses deux précédents opus (The Colour of My Love et D’eux) Céline surpasse toutes les attentes en offrant un des plus audacieux albums de sa carrière. Son quatrième album en anglais, Falling into you, deviendra rapidement un classique des années 90.

Le premier single, Because You Loved Me, ne met que trois semaines pour atteindre la première position du Billboard Hot 100. Il s’agit de l'ascension la plus rapide d'un titre de Céline sur un palmarès américain. La chanson d’ouverture, l’épique It’s All Coming Back To Me Now, est souvent perçue comme la chanson emblématique définissant son style musical. Elle devient elle aussi rapidement une pièce maîtresse de son répertoire en spectacle.

Céline s’y approprie également les standards All By Myself d’Eric Carmen et River Deep, Mountain High, chanson de Phil Spector créée pour Tina Turner. Ces deux titres deviendront des incontournables sur scène. L’album compte aussi trois adaptations anglophones de pièces figurant sur D'eux, soit I Don't Know (Je sais pas), If That's What It Takes (Pour que tu m’aimes encore) et Fly (Vole).

Misant sur les plus grands producteurs du moment comme David Foster (Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Neil Diamond), Jim Steinman (Meatloaf, Bonnie Tyler, Sisters Of Mercy), Humberto Gatica (Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Robert Palmer), Ric Wake (Taylor Dayne, Mariah Carey) et comptant sur l’immense talent de l’auteur-compositeur français Jean-Jacques Goldman, Falling Into You remportera le Grammy du meilleur album (Album of the year) et sera certifié Diamant en France et au Canada, 12 fois Platine à Taiwan, en Afrique du Sud et en Australie, 11 fois Platine aux États-Unis, 7 fois au Royaume-Uni ainsi que moult fois multi platines dans plusieurs autres pays du monde.

Falling Into You fut une étape décisive dans la remarquable carrière de Céline, révélant au grand jour l'étendue de ses qualités vocales et interprétatives. Avec Falling Into You, Céline s'est forgé la solide réputation de première interprète internationale de sa génération.

    It's All Coming Back To Me Now

    There were nights when the wind was so cold
    That my body froze in bed
    If I just listened to it
    Right outside the window

    There were days when the sun was so cruel
    That all the tears turned to dust
    And I just knew my eyes were
    Drying up forever

    I finished crying in the instant that you left
    And I can't remember where or when or how
    And I banished every memory you and I had ever made

    But when you touch me like this
    And you hold me like that
    I just have to admit
    That it's all coming back to me
    When I touch you like this
    And I hold you like that
    It's so hard to believe but
    It's all coming back to me
    It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now

    There were moments of gold
    And there were flashes of light
    There were things I'd never do again
    But then they'd always seemed right
    There were nights of endless pleasure
    It was more than any laws allow
    Baby Baby

    If I kiss you like this
    And if you whisper like that
    It was lost long ago
    But it's all coming back to me
    If you want me like this
    And if you need me like that
    It was dead long ago
    But it's all coming back to me
    It's so hard to resist
    And it's all coming back to me
    I can barely recall
    But it's all coming back to me now
    But it's all coming back

    There were those empty threats and hollow lies
    And whenever you tried to hurt me
    I just hurt you even worse
    And so much deeper

    There were hours that just went on for days
    When alone at last we'd count up all the chances
    That were lost to us forever

    But you were history with the slamming of the door
    And I made myself so strong again somehow
    And I never wasted any of my time on you since then

    But if I touch you like this
    And if you kiss me like that
    It was so long ago
    But it's all coming back to me
    If you touch me like this
    And if I kiss you like that
    It was gone with the wind
    But it's all coming back to me
    It's all coming back, it's all coming back to me now

    There were moments of gold
    And there were flashes of light
    There were things we'd never do again
    But then they'd always seemed right
    There were nights of endless pleasure
    It was more than all your laws allow
    Baby, Baby, Baby

    When you touch me like this
    And when you hold me like that
    It was gone with the wind
    But it's all coming back to me
    When you see me like this
    And when I see you like that
    Then we see what we want to see
    All coming back to me
    The flesh and the fantasies
    All coming back to me
    I can barely recall
    But it's all coming back to me now

    If you forgive me all this
    If I forgive you all that
    We forgive and forget
    And it's all coming back to me
    When you see me like this
    And when I see you like that
    We see just what we want to see
    All coming back to me
    The flesh and the fantasies
    All coming back to me
    I can barely recall but it's all coming back to me now

    (It's all coming back to me now)
    And when you kiss me like this
    (It's all coming back to me now)
    And when I touch you like that
    (It's all coming back to me now)
    If you do it like this (It's all coming back to me now)
    And if we...

    Because You Loved Me

    For all those times you stood by me
    For all the truth that you made me see
    For all the joy you brought to my life
    For all the wrong that you made right
    For every dream you made come true
    For all the love I found in you
    I'll be forever thankful baby
    You're the one who held me up
    Never let me fall
    You're the one who saw me through through it all

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You gave me wings and made me fly
    You touched my hand I could touch the sky
    I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
    You said no star was out of reach
    You stood by me and I stood tall
    I had your love I had it all
    I'm grateful for each day you gave me
    Maybe I don't know that much
    But I know this much is true
    I was blessed because I was loved by you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    You were always there for me
    The tender wind that carried me
    A light in the dark shining your love into my life
    You've been my inspiration
    Through the lies you were the truth
    My world is a better place because of you

    You were my strength when I was weak
    You were my voice when I couldn't speak
    You were my eyes when I couldn't see
    You saw the best there was in me
    Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
    You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
    I'm everything I am
    Because you loved me

    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

    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

    All By Myself

    When I was young
    I never needed anyone
    And making love was just for fun
    Those days are gone
    Livin’ alone
    I think of all the friends I’ve known
    When I dial the telephone
    Nobody’s home

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore

    Hard to be sure
    Sometimes I feel so insecure
    And loves so distant and obscure
    Remains the cure

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    All by myself
    Anymore

    When I was young
    I never needed anyone
    Making love was just for fun
    Those days are gone

    All by myself
    Don’t wanna be
    All by myself
    Anymore
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    Oh
    Don’t wanna live
    By myself, by myself
    Anymore
    By myself
    Anymore
    Oh
    All by myself
    Don’t wanna live
    I never, never, never
    Needed anyone

    I Love You

    I must be crazy now
    Maybe I dream too much
    But when I think of you
    I long to feel your touch

    To whisper in your ear
    Words that are old as time
    Words only you would hear
    If only you were mine

    I wish I could go back to the very first day I saw you
    Should've made my move when you looked in my eyes
    ‘Cause by now I know that you'd feel the way that I do
    And I'd whisper these words as you'd lie here by my side

    I love you, please say
    You love me too, these three words
    They could change our lives forever
    And I promise you that we will always be together
    Till the end of time

    So today, I finally find the courage deep inside
    Just to walk right up to your door
    But my body can't move when I finally get to it
    Just like a thousand times before

    Then without a word he handed me this letter
    Read I hope this finds the way into your heart, it said

    I love you, please say
    You love me too, these three words
    They could change our lives forever
    And I promise you that we will always be together
    Till the end of time

    Well maybe I, I need a little love yeah
    And maybe I, I need a little care
    And maybe I, maybe you, maybe you, maybe you
    Oh you need somebody just to hold you
    If you do, just reach out and I'll be there

    I love you, please say
    You love me too
    Please say you love me too
    Till the end of time
    These three words
    They could change our lives forever
    And I promise you that we will always be together

    Oh, I love you
    Please say you love me too
    Please Please
    Say you love me too
    Till the end of time
    My baby
    Together, together, forever
    Till the end of time
    I love you
    I will be your light
    Shining bright
    Shining through your eyes
    My baby

    If That's What It Takes

    You're the bravest of hearts, you're the strongest of souls
    You're my light in the dark, you're the place I call home
    You can say it's all right, but I know that you're breaking up inside
    I see it in your eyes
    Even you face the night afraid and alone
    That's why I'll be there

    When the storm rises up, when the shadows descend
    Ev'ry beat of my heart, ev'ry day without end
    Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make
    Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes
    If that's what it takes

    You can sleep in my arms, you don't have to explain
    When your heart's crying out, baby, whisper my name
    ‘Cause I've reached out for you when the thunder is crashing up above
    You've given me your love
    When your smile like the sun that shines through the pain
    That's why I'll be there

    When the storm rises up, when the shadows descend
    Ev'ry beat of my heart, ev'ry day without end
    I will stand like a rock, I will bend till I break
    Till there's no more to give, if that's what it takes
    I will risk everything, I will fight, I will bleed
    I will lay down my life, if that's what you need
    Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make
    Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes

    Through the wind and the rain, through the smoke and the fire
    When the fear rises up, when the wave's ever higher
    I will lay down my heart, my body, my soul
    I will hold on all night and never let go
    Ev'ry second I live, that's the promise I make
    Baby, that's what I'll give, if that's what it takes

    If that's what it takes
    Every day
    If that's what it takes
    Every day

    I Don't Know

    A mountain of stone, a door of steel
    Can't stand in my way, I'd go on
    Brutal machines, unbending laws
    Can't slow me down, I'd go on
    I've learned how to deal and when to fight
    I know what's real, I know what's right
    I'm not afraid, a wounded dove
    I can be tender in a world so tough

    I'm sure I could face the bitter cold
    But life without you, I don't know

    The winds of the heart can blow me down
    But I get right up and I stand my ground
    I've tasted fear, my share of pain
    The wasted tears of love in vain
    I've held you tight, pushed you away
    Now with all my might I beg you to stay

    I'm sure I could face the bitter cold
    But life without you, I don't know

    I know what I want, I know what I need
    But there's just one thing I must believe
    Deep in the night by a dying flame
    You will be there when I call your name

    I'm sure I could face the bitter cold
    But life without you, I don't know

    I don't know

    River Deep, Mountain High

    When I was a little girl
    I had a rag doll
    Only doll I’ve ever owned
    Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
    But only now my love has grown

    And it gets stronger, in every way
    And it gets deeper, let me say
    And it gets higher, day by day

    And do I love you my oh my
    Yeh river deep mountain high
    If I lost you would I cry
    Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

    When you were a young boy
    Did you have a puppy
    That always followed you around
    Well I’m gonna be as faithful as that puppy
    No I’ll never let you down

    Cause it grows stronger, like a river flows
    And it gets bigger baby, and heaven knows
    And it gets sweeter baby, as it grows

    And do I love you my oh my
    Yeh river deep, mountain high
    If I lost you would I cry
    Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

    I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
    And I love you baby just like Tina loves to sing
    And I love you baby like a school boy loves his pet
    And I love you baby, river deep mountain high
    Oh yeah you’ve gotta believe me
    River Deep, Mountain High
    Do I love you my oh my, oh baby
    River deep, mountain high
    If I lost you would I cry
    Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

    Your Light

    Hey man, come over here
    There’s a secret that I wanna whisper in your ear
    I’ve waited so long, too long
    But I can’t deny it anymore it’s just too strong

    It’s a special kind of feelin’
    Something to believe in, Oh yeah

    So lay back, and let it flow
    Then just open up your heart and let your feelings go
    I said Hey man, Yo man
    Well it’s really not that difficult to understand

    That it’s me that you’ve been seein’
    Baby when you’re dreamin’, at night

    So let your walls come down
    And you’ll feel my emotion
    I will shelter you
    From a tear or an ocean

    Whenever your hope is gone
    I’ll give you strength to carry on
    In the darkness of the night
    I will be your light
    I’ll give you something to hold on to
    When you can’t find your way
    Like a fire burning bright
    I will be your light

    So relax, we’ll take it slow
    I wouldn’t think you’d really have a better place to go
    I said Hey man, Yo Man
    Why don’t you move a little closer here and take my hand

    Are you feelin’ what I’m feelin’
    I know I must be dreamin’, oh yeah

    But sometimes life can come
    To build a wall in between us
    Don’t let it get you down
    Whoever said love was an easy thing

    Whenever your hope is gone
    I’ll give you strength to carry on
    In the darkness of the night
    I will be your light
    I’ll give you something to hold on to
    When you can’t find your way
    Like a fire burning bright
    I will be your light

    I will be your light
    Whenever you need a friend
    Just come over to me baby
    Baby Baby Baby
    So let your walls come down
    And you’ll feel my emotion
    I will shelter you
    From a tear or an ocean

    Whenever your hope is gone
    I’ll give your strength to carry on
    In the darkness of the night
    I will be your light
    I’ll give you something to hold on to
    When you can’t find your way
    Like a fire burning bright
    I will be your light

    Whenever your hope is gone
    I’ll give you strength to carry on
    In the darkness of the night
    I will be your light
    Light, shining bright, baby
    I’ll be the one who holds you, baby
    I’ll be the one who loves you, baby
    Be the one who holds you, loves you,
    Baby, baby

    Call The Man

    Close the door
    Shut the world away
    All the fight’s gone from this wounded heart
    Across the floor
    Dreams and shadows play
    Like wind blown refugees

    Call the man
    Who deals in love beyond repair
    He can heal the world
    Of hearts in need of care
    Shine a light ahead
    When the next step is unclear
    Call the man
    He’s needed here

    I close my eyes
    I remember when
    Your sweet love filled this empty room
    The tears I cry
    Won’t bring it back again
    Unless the lonely star should fall

    Call the man
    Who deals in love beyond repair
    He can heal the world
    Of hearts in need of care
    Shine a light ahead
    When the next step is unclear
    Call the man
    He’s needed here

    Needed in the chaos and confusion
    From the plains to city hall
    Needed where the proud who walk the wire are set to fall

    Call the man
    Who deals in once upon a time
    Maybe he
    Can mend this broken heart of mine
    Shine a light ahead
    Now the future isn’t clear
    Call the man
    He’s needed here
    Call the man
    He’s needed here

    Fly

    Fly, fly little wing
    Fly beyond imagining
    The softest cloud, the whitest dove
    Upon the wind of heaven’s love
    Past the planets and the stars
    Leave this lonely world of ours
    Escape the sorrow and the pain
    And fly again

    Fly, fly precious one
    Your endless journey has begun
    Take your gentle happiness
    Far too beautiful for this
    Cross over to the other shore
    There is peace forevermore
    But hold this mem’ry bittersweet
    Until we meet

    Fly, fly do not fear
    Don’t waste a breath, don’t shed a tear
    Your heart is pure, your soul is free
    Be on your way, don’t wait for me
    Above the universe you’ll climb
    On beyond the hands of time
    The moon will rise, the sun will set
    But I won’t forget

    Fly, fly little wing
    Fly where only angels sing
    Fly away, the time is right
    Go now, find the light

     

    (Jean-Jacques Goldman / Phil Galdston)
