Two Different Worlds
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Two different worlds
We live in two different worlds
For we've been told
That a love like ours could never be
So far apart
They say we're so far apart
And that we haven't the right
To change our destiny

When will they learn
That a heart doesn't draw the line
Nothing matters if I am yours
And you are mine

Two different worlds
We live in two different worlds
But we will show them
As we walk together in the sun
That our two different worlds are one

Two different worlds
We live in two different worlds
But we will show them




As we walk together in the sun
That our two different worlds are one

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Two Different Worlds" by Engelbert Humperdinck speak of a couple who have been told that their love can never be because they belong to different worlds. The couple is being judged because they aren't from the same background, social status or culture. However, they refuse to accept what others think and are determined to prove them wrong. They believe that love can cross any boundary and that their love is strong enough to overcome any obstacle. The couple wishes for others to understand that just because their worlds look different on the outside, their love is real and powerful, and they will stand by each other no matter what.


The song has a deeper message of personal freedom, tolerance, and acceptance. It highlights the importance of focusing on the heart and disregarding external factors that can sometimes hold us back. The song's lyrics encourage people to break their boundaries and follow their hearts. It represents a universal theme which speaks to people of all ages and races.


Line by Line Meaning

Two different worlds
The two of us come from very different backgrounds.


We live in two different worlds
Our differing upbringings and experiences have shaped us into very different people.


For we've been told
Others have informed us that our love is impossible and impractical.


That a love like ours could never be
The people around us don't believe in our relationship.


So far apart
We are separated by a great distance in terms of our experiences and outlook on life.


They say we're so far apart
Those who oppose our love insist that we will never be able to bridge the gap between us.


And that we haven't the right
They insist it is not our place to try for a relationship.


To change our destiny
We have been fated to be apart and there is nothing we can do to alter that destiny.


When will they learn
We hope the people around us will come to understand our love and accept it for what it is.


That a heart doesn't draw the line
Our love is based on feelings, not logic or common sense.


Nothing matters if I am yours
As long as we love each other, nothing else matters to us.


And you are mine
We belong to each other and our love is true.


But we will show them
We are determined to demonstrate our love to those who doubt it.


As we walk together in the sun
We will live our lives together and make a future for ourselves.


That our two different worlds are one
Our love can overcome the differences between us and make us one united couple.
