The World is Not Enough

At some point in life, this world makes you a person seasoned enough to differ between what is real and not. At some point in life, this world has made you experienced enough to know when you want something for real. At some point in life, this world has made you have the ability to sense it when you fall in love for good. At some point in life, this world makes you a person who has known enough to know when you meet the person who is destined for you. At some point in life, you just do. And at the point when you do, you just know. And at the moment when you know, everything starts to make sense. And at the moment when you know, everything just falls right into place. And at the moment when you know, that is when you realize the reason behind your existence in this world. And at the moment when you realize, you are ready for anything that may come though you are never prepared. You feel the abundance of the feeling. And you just know it, for you know, when you already meet your fateful partner, the world is not enough.

“People like us know how to survive, there’s no point in living if you can’t feel the life. We know when to kiss and we know when to kill, if we can’t have it all then nobody will.” –Garbage, The World is Not Enough

Still from the Bond’s soundtrack, this one is titled “The World is Not Enough”, performed by alternative rock band, Garbage. It served as theme song for the eponymous 1999 James Bond film. The electronic rock track was written by David Arnold and Don Black. It was released as a single on October 4th 1999, and later was released as a part of “The World is Not Enough: Music from the Motion Picture” on November 9th 1999. The lyrics are from the viewpoint of Elektra King, the Bond girl revealed as the mastermind of the villainous scheme. Its underlying themes are seduction and domination, with a line of dialogue from the film, “There’s no point in living if you can’t feel alive,” was included in the lyrics.

This life has taken us to places. We’ve been hurt and we’ve been hurting. We’ve been healed and we’ve been healing. This life has taught so many things. This life has shaped us into who we are today. The experiences have taught us things we got to know. From the pain and loneliness, we’ve learned how it feels to get hurt as well as to hurt people in return. From the wisdom and lessons, we’ve learned how it feels to be healed as well as to heal people in return. “I know how to hurt, I know how to heal, I know what to show and what to conceal. I know when to talk, and I know when to touch, no one ever died from wanting too much.” The experiences have taught us what to show and what to conceal. And we’re so good at it because of the bad moments in the past. The experiences have taught us when to talk and when to touch. And we’re so good at it because of the good moments in the past. And so it all comes up to one moment when we know we want something or someone so much unlike what we’ve felt before.
“People like us know how to survive, there’s no point in living if you can’t feel the life. We know when to kiss and we know when to kill, if we can’t have it all then nobody will.” And the reason why we want that person so much is because they are just like us. People are indeed able to recognize their kind easily. And just when we know we’ve met that kind of person, that is when we know that we are into them. And that is when we know that we belong together with that person. We’ve been though something similar. And we’ve survived and we know exactly how to do it. We got the same value in regards to how we see life from many points of view, particularly the significant ones. We read the same page. And moreover, we both know when to kiss and when to kill. The experiences have taught us and it all comes up to this moment when we meet. The life has shaped us and it all leads us to this moment when we’re together. And we’re so good at it; at being with each other. “I feel sick, I feel scared, I feel ready and yet unprepared.”
And after all that we’ve been through, it feels so great to finally meet that one person who is so much alike to us. And after all that we’ve been done, it feels so amazing to finally have that one person to stand beside us and face it all together. And after all the experiences, it feels so wonderful to be hand-in-hand with the person who has the same vision and mission. The feeling is galore. We feel sick yet excited at the same time. We feel scared yet joyful at the same time. We feel ready yet unprepared at the same time. However, one thing that we know is that the world is not enough; for we are ready for anything, and we know it all too well that together we can conquer the world. “The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start, my love. And if you’re strong enough, together we can take the world apart, my love.” Though it’s not enough, it’s a perfect place to start. And yes, together we are strong more than enough to take the world apart. “The world is not enough. No, nowhere near enough. The world is not enough.”

Have you ever felt invincible? Well I tell you, that is what you will exactly feel when you’ve meet the one. When you meet that one person whom you feel so connected to, it would make you feel stronger than ever that together you can take the world apart. When you have that one person whom you feel in deep synchronization with, it would make you feel so abundant that the world is not enough. It’s all because you are aware of the potential that you and that person both could reach if you’re together. It’s all because you know it all too well of the power that you and that person both could gain when you’re together. And all you need to do is to convince that person; that the world is not enough, yet you both are strong enough to take the world apart if you’re together. And that is all exactly how I feel towards my relationship with my partner. Together we are strong enough to take this world apart. There’s no point in living if we can’t feel the life. And together we are alive. And together we have it all. And though this world is not enough, it’s such a perfect place to start, together.

“The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start, my love. And if you’re strong enough, together we can take the world apart, my love.” –Garbage, The World is Not Enough




I know how to hurt, I know how to heal, I know what to show and what to conceal
I know when to talk, and I know when to touch, no one ever died from wanting too much

The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start, my love
And if you’re strong enough, together we can take the world apart, my love

People like us know how to survive, there’s no point in living if you can’t feel the life
We know when to kiss and we know when to kill, if we can’t have it all then nobody will

The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start, my love
And if you’re strong enough, together we can take the world apart, my love

I feel sick, I feel scared, I feel ready and yet unprepared

The world is not enough, but it is such a perfect place to start, my love
And if you’re strong enough, together we can take the world apart, my love

The world is not enough, the world is not enough
No, nowhere near enough, the world is not enough
