Fabienne Thibeault originally perfomed this song on the rock musical Starmania.
The lyrics were written especially for Celine by Luc Plamondon. The song presents a bolder sound than Celine's previous hits. Aldo Nova and Marty Simon made the music. Besides, Luc Plamondon and Aldo Nova are presents on its rock'n roll videoclip.
"I sang for the first time the lyrics from Lolita in front of Rene, Celine tells, to provoke him. I wasn't looking at him, but I was sure that he was possessed with every words and that he was upset... It was strange, a kind of declaration of chaste and unchaste love. Then we kept silent for a long while. The message was direct."
(Note that Celine and Rene were not yet in love but their love was becoming clear.)
For this album, Celine has a new look, a new sound, a new team, a new disc company, so she's a new Celine Dion. It is what the song is about.
It is Celine's favorite song on the album D'Eux. Jean-Jacques Goldman wrote it late in 1994.
"Pour que tu m'aimes encore, Celine tells, the first song heard, the first recorded, at once reminded me L'hymne à l'amour by Edith Piaf. The same subject, the same structure, the same woman consumed by love. It is a hymn to wild, possessed, possessive, definitive love, as mine... We knew while we were recording that now it will be part of my life."
This song speaks about a woman who couldn't imagine her life without her man, like Celine with Rene. We can remember that during the concert at the Stade de France in 1999, Celine was crying singing it, as we just learnt about Rene's cancer.
"For me, Celine tells, Zora does not only represent Algeria but also all those women from all those countries where they just don't have the chance to be free and happy."
The lyrics puts in light the example of a woman who fights for her and for the others, who resists to the insults, who keeps her dignity in spite of the difficulties.
With her steady and frank voice, Celine expresses all these feelings, those of the revolt but also those of the hope.
