"Goldeneye" as written by and Barry/waaktaar....
See reflections on the water
More than darkness in the depths
See him surface in every shadow
On the wind, I feel his breath

Goldeneye, I found his weakness
Goldeneye, he'll do what I please
Goldeneye, no time for sweetness
But a bitter kiss will bring him to his knees

You'll never know how I watched you from the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels to be the one who's left behind
You'll never know the days and the nights
The tears, the tears I've cried
But now my time has come
And time, time is not on your side

See him move through smoke and mirrors
Feel his presence in the crowd
Other girls they gather around him
If I had him, I wouldn't let him out

Goldeneye, not lace or leather
Golden chain, take him to the spot
Goldeneye, I'll show him forever
It'll take forever to see what I've got

You'll never know how I watched you from the shadows as a child
You'll never know how it feels to get so close and be denied
It's a gold and honey trap
I've got for you tonight
Revenge is a kiss this time I won't miss
Now I've got you in my sight

With a goldeneye
Golden, goldeneye
With a goldeneye

    General Comment"Goldeneye" was the nickname of author Ian Fleming's
    beachfront vaction home in Jamaica where he wrote his James Bond novels. Guess the powers that be thought it would be a cool title for the 17th "official" MGM/UA Bond movie.

    For a Bond tune, it's one of the more exiting ones. Turner belts it out like Shirley Bassey in "Goldfinger". The villian of the film is an ex "double 0" agent Bond believes he leaves behind during a mission, hence the sibling rivalry in the lyics.
    The goldeneye itself is a computer disc that operates the usual Bond superweapon.

    General CommentGoldenEye was Pierce Brosnan's first film as James Bond. He was the hot favourite for the role in 1986 after Roger Moore retired, and was offered the role, but contractual obligations to the Remington Steele TV series prevented him from starring in The Living Daylights. Timothy Dalton instead became Bond.
    Cut to 1995. Dalton has retired from the Bond movies after legal wranglings had delayed the series for 9 years. Brosnan got another chance to play Bond.
    This song references Brosnan's near miss in 1986 ("You’ll never know how it feels to be the one who’s left behind", "You’ll never know how it feels to get so close and be denied"), his eventual succession to the role ("But now my time has come and time, time is not on your side"), and the well-publicised fact that the first film Brosnan ever saw was 'Goldfinger' when he was 11 ("You’ll never know how I watched you from the shadows as a child").

    General CommentGoldeneye is about a distant relationship between a spy and a woman who has been watching him. She sees him as a mystery man and feels that she almost has him and wont stop until she gets him.
