Courage

Global superstar Celine Dion has released three new tracks from her highly anticipated album, Courage, today via Sony Music Entertainment Canada/Columbia Records. “Imperfections,” “Lying Down” and “Courage” are new tracks from the eclectic album, each representing an exciting new creative direction for Celine.  A mix of beautiful ballads and edgy up-tempo tracks, Courage is her first English album in 6 years and will be available everywhere November 15th. Courage is available for preorder now HERE.

“Imperfections,” examines the lens of self-criticism and was written by Ari Leff, Michael Pollack, Nicholas Perloff-Giles, Dallas Koehlke (‘DallasK’) and produced by DallasK. “Lying Down” reminds us all to change our mindset to move forward after a poisonous relationship and was written by David Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort, and Sia Furler. The title track “Courage” is an anthemic call for strength and fierceness when you are on the precipice of a new challenge, and was written by Stephan Moccio, Erik Alcock and Liz Rodrigues. Also featured on the album is the previously-released “Flying On My Own,” which Celine performed on the last night of her historic 16-year Las Vegas residency. The song was written by Jörgen Elofsson, Liz Rodrigues and Anton Mårtensson, and marked Celine’s first step in the bold next phase of her career.

Track List

  • 1. Flying On My Own

    There's something shifting in the air
    If I'm not mistaken
    The dust is clearing everywhere
    Memories awaken

    My feet on the runway
    It's a beautiful day
    I look to the sky now
    I’m finding my way

    I'm flying on my own
    On the wings of your love
    I'm flying on my own
    On the wings of your love
    I’m flying on my own (on the wings of your love)
    I’m flying on my own (on the wings of your love)

    The warmer winds will carry me
    Anywhere I want them to
    If you could see what I can see
    That nothing’s blocking my view

    I look to the sky now
    It's a beautiful day

    I'm flying on my own
    On the wings of your love
    I'm flying on my own
    On the wings of your love
    I'm flying on my own (on the wings of your love)
    I'm flying on my own (on the wings of your love)

    I'm free like an eagle
    Soar like an eagle
    Sailing the winds of change
    On the winds of change
    On the winds of change

    My feet on the runway
    It's a beautiful day
    I look to the sky now
    I’m finding my way

    I'm flying on my own (on the wings of your love)
    I'm flying on my own (on the wings of your love)
    I'm flying on my
    Flying on my
    Flying on my own
    Flying on my own baby yeah yeah

    I'm flying on my
    Flying on my
    Flying on my own
    Flying on my own baby yeah yeah

    I’m flying on my own
    On the winds of change

    (Jörgen Elofsson, Liz Rodrigues, Anton Mårtenson)

  • 2. Lovers Never Die
  • 3. Falling In Love Again
  • 4. Lying Down

    oh i didn't mean to fall in deep
    but i've no regrets
    you tried to push me down, you tried to keep me possessed

    i gave you my heart, you took the key
    but now i pay my debt
    it's time i left

    and i don't need someone who makes me feel so bad
    and i've just enough left to help me pack my bags
    yes i have found something i thought i lost
    i found me, i found faith, i found trust


    you can't take this from me
    can't you see i won’t take this lying down
    and i can hear you when you speak your poison
    bitter words can't hurt me now, i won't take it lying down

    all it takes is one bold move to change everything
    all it takes is loving you to forget, forgive
    but i'm having some kind of breakthrough
    i'm ready to live

    and i don't need someone who makes me feel so bad
    and i've just enough left to help me pack my bags
    yes i have found something i thought i lost
    i found me, i found faith, i found trust


    you can't take this from me
    can't you see i won’t take this lying down
    and i can hear you when you speak your poison
    bitter words can't hurt me now, i won't take it lying down

    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down

    you can't take this from me
    can't you see i won’t take this lying down
    and i can hear you when you speak your poison
    bitter words can't hurt me now, i won't take it lying down

    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down
    i won't take it lying down

    (David Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort, Sia Furler)

  • 5. Courage

    I would be lying if I said I'm fine
    I think of you at least 100 times
    Cause in the echo of my voice I hear your words
    Just like you’re there

    I still come home from a long day
    So much to talk about so much to say
    I love to think that we're still making plans
    In conversations that'll never end
    In conversations that'll never end

    Courage
    Don't you dare fail me now
    I need you to keep away the doubts
    I'm staring in the face of something new
    You’re all I got to hold on to
    So courage
    Don't you dare fail me now

    I’m not one to hide from the truth I know
    It’s out of my hands but I won't let you go
    There’s no replacing the way you touched me
    I still feel the rush

    Sometimes it drowns me until I can’t breath
    Thinking it’s only in our memories
    But then I talk to you like I did then
    In conversations that will never end

    Courage
    Don't you dare fail me now
    I need you to keep away the doubts
    I'm staring in the face of something new
    You’re all I got to hold on to
    So courage
    Don't you dare fail me now


    Cause it’s not easy
    When you’re not with me
    This world of madness
    Goes faster now
    And it's a train wreck
    But I won’t crash yet
    Long as your echo
    Never fades out

    Courage don't you dare fail me now

    Cause it’s not easy
    When you’re not with me
    This world of madness
    Goes faster now
    And it's a train wreck
    But I won’t crash yet
    Long as your echo
    Never fades out

    Courage don't you dare fail me now

    (Stephan Moccio, Liz Rodrigues, Erik Alcock)

  • 6. Imperfections

    I try to give all of myself to you
    But before I can get there
    Got parts of me I'm trying to lose

    Ya I got my own imperfections
    I got my own set of scars to hide
    I got my own imperfections
    I can't hold your heart when I'm fixing mine

    So give it up give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up give it up now
    Give it up give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up give it up now

    Cuz I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Ya I got my own
    I got my own

    Hold on not tryna put you on the shelf
    But before I could love you
    I need to learn to love myself

    Cause I got my own imperfections
    I got my own set of scars to hide
    I got my own imperfections
    I can't hold your heart when I'm fixing mine
    So give it up give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up give it up now
    Give it up give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up give it up now

    Cuz I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Ya I got my own
    I got my own

    They’re part of me, and you are too
    And I don’t really wanna choose
    Can you love them the way that I love you
    They make me who I am today
    And they won’t ever go away
    Can you love them the way that I love you


    Cuz I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Ya I got my own
    I got my own

    Before I can love you
    I need to learn to love myself
    Before I can trust you
    I need to learn to trust myself

    (Ari Leff, Michael Pollack, Nicholas Perloff-Giles, Dallas Koehlke)
