Plans of an inmigrant


I'm going to start a new life in America because when we arrive I'm going to do lots of things that we weren't able to do there, in Irlanda.

Maybe, the first thing I'm going to do is watch the sea and swim a bit. After that, I'm going to a bar and drink some beers and dance a bit, but not too much because then it's sure that I'm not going to be able to walk.

Finally, I'm going to search a job and start to build my house, and maybe, I'm going to start a new family.

Titanic song

Titanic Theme Song • My Heart Will Go On • Celine Dion.mp4

Celine Dion Lyrics "My Heart Will Go On" (from "Titanic" soundtrack) 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 'til 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
