Another Year Has Gone By Christmas Song

Another Year Has Gone By

Year: 1998

Written By: Bryan Adams, Eliot Kennedy

Celion Dion's song 'Another Year Has Gone By' was written by Bryan Adams, who also contributed guitar and backing vocals, for her hugely successful (12 million sales to date) 1998 Christmas album 'These Are Special Times'. The album was Dion's 3rd festive collection but her first in English.

To be honest 'Another Year Has Gone By' doesn't sound particularly Christmassy, even if it does mention the 25th of December. The lyrics concern the singer and her love's journey through life and the manner in which New Year's Eve seem to come around so quickly each year. Dion gets into traditional festive mode on many of the other tracks from 'These Are Special Times' including 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful'.
 

Another Year Has Gone By Lyrics

So many 25th's of December
Just as many 4th of July's
And we're still holding it together
It only comes down to you and I

I know you can still remember
Things we said right from the start
When we said that this could be special
I'm keeping those words deep down in my heart

Another year has gone by
And I'm still the one by your side
After everything that's gone by
There's still no one saying goodbye
Though another year has gone by

I never been much for occasions
You never let another birthday go by
Without announcing how much you love me
But the truth was always there
Right there in your eyes

And we're still holding hands when we're walking
Acting like we've only just met
But how can that be - when there's so much history
I guess that's how true lovers can get

Another year has gone by
And I'm still the one by your side
After everything that's gone by
There's still no one saying goodbye
Though another year has gone by

Another year has gone by
And I'm still the one by your side
After everything that's gone by
There's still no one saying goodbye
Though another year has gone by
