Celine Dion: Immortality Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 1998
And this is all I know
And I must choose to live
For all that I can give
The spark that makes the power grow
And I will stand for my dream if I can
Symbol of my faith in who I am
But you are my only
And I must follow...

A woman torn between her dream and the man she loves. In the end, she chooses her dream over the man but the love she has for him will be immortal even if they will be in different paths.

For me, Its about being torn apart between his/ her one and only love and his/her dreams. However, realizing he / she cant have both at the same time. Realizing that all that has life will die, decided to put his / her dream first. But, he / she asks for immortality so that he / she can be with her love afterwards. Hence the lyrics
"Cause I have found a dream that must come true
Every ounce of me must see it through
But you are my only
I'm sorry I don't have a role for love to play
Hand over my heart I'll find my way
I will make them give to me
Then the coda.." With all my love for you
And what else we may do
We don't say, goodbye"
He / she doesn't want to sive up either of the two. Therefore, asked for immortality.
"Hand over my heart I'll find my way
I will make them give to me...

This song has become close to my heart after my partner died of cancer. After years of depression, I managed to put the unbearable sadness behind me and pursue my dream of working for farmed animals and - in a way - saving the world for animals, despite the fact that I will never stop loving my dead partner. For me, our love is immortal, but I choose my dream instead of crying forever about losing her.

We don’t say goodbye because our love will live for ever. What ever may come my Heart will be yours forever even though my head tells me something else. My dream is to see you on the other side wherever it is and I will say “hello my love” it is nice to be with you again and this is the dream I have all along. I love you fotrever.

Immortality means a love that is never ending - forever - even if you take different paths because of the power in who you are as individuals to pursue
. We should all be that lucky to have that kind of love in our lives.

I personally think that the song is a dirge even though she is dead, her love for her partner is immortal

We have a purpose and that is being portrayed by the dreams inside of us. Immortality is the reward we get as we fulfill our destiny here on earth and with the fulfillment of it then we'll be once again be reunited with the people we love.

Celine sings this with the Bee Gees. Its about people that have passed on in your life. Their spirit and memories always stay with you. Through having dreams about them or seeing visions of them for that split 2nd. There is an afterlife I truly believe and reincarnation. The soul is reborn into somebody new . U will quite often come across this person and say to yourself u remind me of somebody . Beautiful piece of music

"I love you but I have fulfil dreams! I have to prove to everyone that can, that my life has a purpose in this world. Inspite of being judged and accused by negative people surrounds me. So now I will sacrice even my dearest love just to prove everyone that I not "useless". No matter what happen even if it is last time that we see each other I will love you forever." Immortality

to me this song is about ( if there was a possibility of) reincarnation and an immortal soul, a love between two people so strong and true that it carries over to the next life. so in hopes of never loosing them would rather remain immortal ,to find and recapture them in the next. Immortality: the ability to live forever

I thought immortality was what she chose through her dream. Be it a song or a book. You become immortal through your work. But I like the way you think.

This song popped up in my head on July 2016 for someone that i realised as my twin flame; soulmate; true love (whatever it called). Feels like i know my destiny as it written on the lyrics. Feeling not happy, not sad either...wholeness that we needed. This song is definitely my story that angel gave me to prepare myself facing my life path to be stronger n wiser person.to tame my ego n my shadow side

What it means to me is that the protagonist must choose between their lover and their dreams. Also, they realize that although they and the person they love are on separate paths and even after death, they will never be apart.
