J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

BELONG (2) - TIME (7) - rock 'n' roll - MONEY

It's been a long ________________ since I came around

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me, oh
I’d give anything again to be your baby doll
This _________________ I'm not leaving without you

He said, sit back down where you ___________________
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we made love the first time
And you said to me

Somethin', somethin' about this place
Somethin', somethin' 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face
Somethin', somethin' about my cool Nebraska guy
Yeah something about, baby, you and I

It's been two years since I let you go
I couldn't listen to a joke or ____________________
Muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart
On my birthday you sang me "A Heart Of Gold"
With a guitar hummin' and overload
This _____________________ I'm not leaving without you
Ooh-oh ooh-oh

Sit back down where you ___________________
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on
Sit back down on the couch where we made love the first ___________________

'Cause you can't buy a house in heaven
There's only three men that I'mma serve my whole life
It's my daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ

Somethin', somethin' about the chase (six whole years)
I'm a New York woman born to run you down
Still want my lipstick all over your face
Somethin', somethin' about just knowing when it's right
So put your drinks up for Nebraska,
For Nebraska, Nebraska, I love ya

You and I, you, you and I
Baby I rather die
Without you and I

You and I, you, you and I
Nebraska, I'd rather die,
Without you and I

It's been a long time since I came around
Been a long time but I'm back in town
And this __________________________ I'm not leaving without you

My Heart Will Go On: Teacher’s Notes


1. Print out this page and cut the following into sections. Give these to students and ask them to try to put them into order. It helps if you have a little “lead in” first, maybe chatting about the film if they’ve seen it, or telling them something about it if they haven’t.

e. On 10 April 1912 the “unsinkable” ship Titanic set off from Southampton in England for New York with 2,223 on board.
c. On the night of Sunday 14 April the ship hit an iceberg and sank, only 706 survived. It was the worst peacetime maritime disaster in history and by far the most famous.

a. 85 years later a Hollywood blockbuster was made, setting a Romeo and Juliet style romance on the maiden voyage of the doomed steamship.

b. In the movie, a treasure hunter is looking for a diamond in the ruins of the Titanic when he finds a painting of a beautiful woman wearing the diamond.

d. He finds out that the woman is Rose Dawson, now an old woman. She tells her story, about how she was a 17 year old girl from a rich family and how she fell in love with a poor man named Jack Dawson.

f. She describes, through flashbacks, how she met Jack and fell in love, and how he died in the icy water but, decades later, her love for him lives on. It is this love that Celine Dion sings about in 1997’s hit song


(The order here is correct! The letters are to make checking answers easier)

2. Cut up the verses of the songs (from the next page) and give them to the learners to put in order as they listen. It’s probably best to do this in pairs.

3. Give them the whole worksheet on the following page for them to keep and check their answers.

4. Possible follow up activities:

  1. watch part of the video.

  2. role play parts of the video.

  3. Write a review of the song/video etc.

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 go till we're one

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

There is some love that will not
go away
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
