"The World Is Not Enough" as written by and David Arnold....
I know how to hurt
I know how to kill
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


I, I feel sick
I, I feel scared
I, I feel ready
And heaven prepare


The world is not enough
The world is not enough

    General CommentMaybe it's me, but I think the first lines are:

    I know how to hurt
    I know how to HEAL

    Anyone else hear it?

    General CommentI don't know why, and I'm sure this isn't what she is referring to in the song, but this song makes me think of a female vampire who has just made a male fledgeling vampire and wants to be with him and they can have everything together. It's romantic in a sadistic way.

    My InterpretationI thought (personally) that it was a song/story about some-one who was in love but lost it somehow and is now ready to destroy the world. (Killing herself and everyone else in video.)

    General CommentYoumakemenevous>Yeah it is... I think it's about how to 'play the game' and then falling inlove... and you know the saying 'I'd give you the world' basically she's saying that it's not enough for her to just give him the world. In a way I get the feeling they are like evil geniuses in love ^^- It's awsome

    General CommentThis talks about extremely passionate and destructive love/sex, the kind we get to see in the movie between Electra and James.

    Very good song.

    General Commentyoumakemenervous - Yeah, I hear "I know how to hurt, I know how to heal". :/

    Other than that, beautiful song, and paralleled to James Bond, as was explained above.. :)
