This research discusses the metaphorical elements contained in the song lyrics of Celine Dion's album D'Eux. From this study, it was found that there are 26 verses from 3 songs, titled "Pour que tu m'aimes encore", "J'irai où tu iras", and "Je sais pas", which contain metaphors. The analysis in this study uses the component theory of meaning from Mortureux (1997) and the theory of metaphors from Camp (2003). The results showed that the songs in this album all have the thematic characteristics of love, but with different depictions of it. The producer’s aim in making this album was to dedicate and show the singer’s love and gratitude for her life. The dominant metaphor function used in lyrics is to provide a clear picture of the true meaning. The love metaphor in the song “Pour que tu m'aimes encore” tells of the loss of a partner, “J'irai où tu iras” about the husband she admires, and “Je sais pas” describes her dependence on her husband. We have found that the lyrics in the three songs are proven to have metaphorical elements of love and form the identity of each song. Each song has a different meaning of love, but has one thing that is highlighted in common, namely the effort to fight for love.
