Whole World is Watching - Within Temptation ft. Dave Pirner




The Experience: Those scars are made they're changing the game... You can't turn back the clock, and you can't avoid paying the price of your mistakes. We all do. But can you rise?


Music Video: Singing from the rooftops in the red glow of a stormy sunset, Within Temptations follows a young biker as he comes back from a paralyzing accident, rises, walks, and finally makes it back on his bike. The video adds one very important aspect: he doesn't just burn his crutches. He also burns the liquor that almost cost him his legs and his life. It's not enough to come back from your mistakes - you have to fix them too. And at the very end of the video, you realize that it wasn't sunset after all. It was sunrise.

Meaning of Whole World Is Watching: Sharon den Adel's and Dave Pirner's vocals follow the ups and downs of life: dreams, pain when life shatters your sureties, and finally building hope that's stronger than your greenhorn confidence ever was, precisely because you've already taken some hits. Living isn't about not falling - we can't always help that - it's about getting up.

Ask Yourself: Are you still down, or rising?


LYRICS:

You live your life. 
You go day by day 
like nothing can go wrong. 
Those scars are made 
they're changing the game. 
You learn to play it hard.

And I know you wish for more, 
and I know you try. 
And I hope you realize 
you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise. 
The whole world is beating for you right now. 
Your whole life is flashing 'fore your eyes. 
It's all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for? 
What are you fighting for? 
Cause time's always slipping away. 
The whole world is watching. 
Yeah, the whole world is watching. 
You're in your right.

You build your walls 
then break them away 
cause that is what it takes. 
You saved yourself. 
You found who you are 
that never goes away.

And I know you wish for more 
and I know you try. 
And I hope you realize, 
you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise. 
The whole world is beating for you right now. 
Your whole life is flashing 'fore your eyes. 
It's all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for? 
What are you fighting for?
Cause time's always slipping away. 
The whole world is watching. 
Yeah, the whole world is watching. 
You're in your right.

Your sacrifice comes to your mind, 
but nothing is wasted. 
You made it now. 
You rise again, reaching out. 
He stands as he's taking his claim to prize.

The whole world is watching. 
Yeah, the whole world is watching. 
You're in your right.

What are you waiting for? 
What are you fighting for? 
Cause time's always slipping away. 
The whole world is watching. 
Yeah, the whole world is watching. 
You're in your right.
