Two Become One



Welcome to March; my most favorite month of the year! In order to welcoming this wonderful month, I would like to start my writings with something sweet, tender, beautiful, and lovely. And there’s nothing more like it than talking about love at its best. Falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world, and so is being in love. For me personally, anything that hurts isn’t caused by the love, but by the unfulfilled expectations instead. Hence, love never hurts. It sets our spirit free instead. When we fall in love, we feel the beauty of it; the courage to build up dreams, the strength to fight for the dreams to come true, and the perseverance to look after the growing feeling as well as the relationship. There will be fears and doubts, but if it’s really meant so much for us, then love will always conquer. It exists to give us bravery to face even our deepest fear. It exists to give us toughness to face even our darkest doubt. Love is a desire; and it’s so much more than just lust. It’s a passion; and it’s so much more than just a foolish act.

“Candle light and soul forever, a dream of you and me together, say you believe it, say you believe it. Free your mind of doubt and danger, be for real don’t be a stranger, we can achieve it, we can achieve it. Come a little bit closer baby, get it on, get it on, ‘cause tonight is the night when two become one.” –Spice Girls, 2 Become 1

It’s a song titled “2 Become 1”, performed by the legendary English girl group, Spice Girls. It was released as a single in the UK on December 16th 1996 and in the US on July 25th 1997. The pop ballad track served as the third single taken from the group’s debut studio album, “Spice”. “2 Become 1” was written by Spice Girls members along with music producers Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard. Lyrically, it depicts how the bonding of two lovers san becomes so strong that they practically become one entity, through the act of sexual intercourse. And this kind of strong bond would never exist if there was not a real feeling of love. Two versions were recorded for “2 Become 1” (the album version and the single version) with slightly different lyrics. And one that I discuss in this writing is the single version.

Dreams are built from love; and relationship is built on trust. When we love, we dare to dream. When we trust, we endeavor for the relationship. When two souls that are meant to be together meet, we will know. We can feel it and we will understand. We can feel it that we have this belief from within that we can make the dream comes true as long as we believe it. And we believe that we can make it as long as we are brave to put all of our efforts on it. “Candle light and soul forever, a dream of you and me together, say you believe it, say you believe it. Free your mind of doubt and danger, be for real don’t be a stranger, we can achieve it, we can achieve it. Come a little bit closer baby, get it on, get it on, ‘cause tonight is the night when two become one.” We can feel it that it’s real. When it’s meant to be, it’s always real; and never it’s a fake. And when we know that it’s real, then we must give our all in order to achieve it. Dreams won’t come true without efforts. And efforts will never betray us. All we need is just come and take a closer look.
Words are the praying yet it won’t come to the fruitition if we never put an effort on it. When two souls that are meant to be together recognize each other, we will know. We can feel that it’s real and we will understand what’s real. And when it’s real, we don’t play games like we used to be. Love is indeed a game yet it’s on another level when it’s real, because the shits are real too. And we have to work it out to preserve it. “Silly games that you were playing, empty words we both were saying, let’s work it out boy, let’s work it out boy. Once again if we endeavor, love will bring us back together, take it or leave it, take it or leave it. Are you as good as I remember baby? Get it on, get it on, ‘cause tonight is the night when two become one.” And when we know that it’s meant to be, that it’s real, then we make the endeavor. We don’t run away. We don’t hide. We march forward to reach it. For we understand it all the way, we will keep coming back for one another because the feeling is so strong we cannot deny. All we need is just get it on.
All the words that have been said and all the feelings that we feel will go in vain without the willingness to make it come true. And the willingness is poured in the effort. And the effort is materialized through an action. All we need is just to be a little bit wiser and put it on. All we need is just to be a little braver and get it on. “Be a little bit wiser baby, put it on, put it on, ‘cause tonight is the night when two become one.” When we know the kind of love that we need, we just know it. And when we know it, we will fight for it and we will never give up until we achieve it. And it will make us back for more. For the real love sets our spirits free instead of strangling it. “I need some love like I never needed love before, wanna make love to you baby. I had a little love, now I’m back for more, wanna make love to you baby. Set your spirit free, it’s the only way to be.” When we know whom we want and need, we’ll make love for them. For we know, that it’s one of the ways to actualize and consummate our love. All we need is just free our spirit.

Making love is more than just two bodies entangled to one another; it’s just having sex and making love is way beyond that. Making love is the meeting of two souls and minds; the two become one as they merge with each other. It’s the desire. It’s the passion. It’s more than just a temporary lust. That’s why it’s called making love. And we won’t have it like this with another person, for what is real is different. And real is so rare these days. Hence once we have found something and someone real, we won’t let it go and we won’t let if fade. Love needs to be nurtured. And we nurture it by keep on fighting for it and making an endless effort for it. We nurture it through actions on daily basis. We nurture it by little practical things in our everyday life. We speak the truth to each other, we listen, we understand, and sometimes we bend, yet we commit to it. We embrace each other’s real selves. We caress each other’s past, fears, and doubts. We protect each other’s future, dreams, and hopes. We accept each other’s true selves. And we create and nurture the “us”.

“I need some love like I never needed love before, wanna make love to you baby. I had a little love, now I’m back for more, wanna make love to you baby. Set your spirit free, it’s the only way to be.” –Spice Girls, 2 Become 1
