From TO LOVE YOU MORE (single)
Written by David Foster & Junior Miles

“To Love You More” is one of those Céliné Dion/David Foster signature songs that helped shaping the adult contemporary sound of the nineties.  It was recorded in 1995 for the popular Japanese TV series, Koibito Yo (meaning My Dear Lover), and eventually released as a single in Japan. It immediately became a smash, selling more than 1.2 million copies, and became the best selling single ever by an international female artist in Japan.  “To Love You More” was later included in the US release of Ms. Dion’s album “Let’s Talk About Love” and on the Canadian version of “Live á Paris.” It was also issued as a single in North America and became a hit on the Adult Contemporary charts.

Foster’s classically inspired arrangement beautifully serves Celine’s vocal performance that develops from a restrained intro to the fireworks of her stunning finale. Another key element of “To Love You More” is the elegant performance of the Japanese crossover trio, Kryzler & Company. Their amazing strings put the song in a different dimension. A Kryzler & Company member, violinist Taro Hakase, also released an instrumental cover of the song that enhanced the classical quality of this composition even more.

Foster co-wrote “To Love You More” with mogul Edgar Bronfman, Jr. who picked the alias Junior Miles for his activity as a songwriter. Soon after they came up with another famous song for Ms. Dion entitled “Be The Man,” also written for a Japanese series.

Lyrics

Take me back in the arms I love
Need me like you did before
Touch me once again
And remember when
There was no one that you wanted more

Don’t go you know you will break my heart
She wont love you like I will
I’m the one who’ll stay
When she walks away
And you know Ill be standing here still

Ill be waiting for you
Here inside my heart
I’m the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need
Let me be the one to love you more

See me as if you never knew
Hold me so you cant let go
Just believe in me
I will make you see
All the things that your heart needs to know

Ill be waiting for you
Here inside my heart
I’m the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need
Let me be the one to love you more
And some way all the love that we had can be saved
Whatever it takes well find a way

Ill be waiting for you
Here inside my heart
I’m the one who wants to love you more
You will see I can give you
Everything you need
Let me be the one to love you more
