Empire - Shakira


The Experience: I wanna be yours, wanna be your hero, a
nd my heart beats. Love isn't just a part of your life. When you're in love, it's your whole life...

Music Video: The lyric video features nature, cities and animals - mostly predators, with some prey thrown in - sort of creepy for a love song. The music video is a nightmare - literally - but still stunning. Shakira shows up for her own wedding, but there's no one to give her away, and no one waiting for her at the end of the aisle. After that, it splits into two realities: a happy bride in front of a breathtaking backdrop of fields, mountains and sunshine, and a desperate Shakira dressed in black, singing in the ruins of the same church where she was supposed to get married. Conclusion? Empire is a dream of ideal love... but not all dreams come true.

The Meaning of Empire: Two people fall in love... and everything he is meets everything she is. You take off all of your skin, and you let them inside your heart. That's not just follow you down. It's more. It's bound to you. It's sharing everything: the good - wanna be your hero - and the bad - all of your sins. Your whole universe meets all of their stars. And forever: until the final end. Love is big.

Ask Yourself: Do you realize how much you give away when you love someone? And how much you receive?

LYRICS:



Take off all of your skin
And brave when you are free
Shake off all of your sins
And give them to me
Close up, lemme back in
I wanna be yours, wanna be your hero
And my heart beats

Like the empires of the world unite
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
You're my wildfire every single night
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
And you touch me
And I'm like and I'm like and I'm like
Oooo Oooo
And I'm like Oooo Oooo
And I'm like Oooo Oooo

I will follow you down wherever you go
I, I'm baby I'm bound to you and do you know?
Closer, pull me in tight
I wanna be yours, wanna be your hero
And my heart beats

Like the empires of the world unite
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
You're my wild fire every single night
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
And you touch me
And I'm like and I'm like and I'm like
Oooo OoooWe are alive
And I'm like Oooo Oooo
We are alive

I'm just gonna raise my head
Welcome to the final end
And I'm gonna fight
(And the stars make love to the universe)
I'm just gonna raise my head
And hold you close

Like the empire of the world unite
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
You're my wild fire every single night
We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
And you touch me
And I'm like and I'm like and I'm like
Oooo Oooo
And I'm like Oooo Oooo
And I'm like Oooo Oooo
And I'm like Oooo Oooo
