"You Only Live Twice (Nancy Sinatra cover)" as written by and John Barry....
You only live twice
Oh, so it seems
One life for yourself
And one for your dreams

You drift through the years
And life seems stray
Till one dream appears
And love is its way

I'd love you to strangers
Ooh, beckon you on
Don't think of the danger
For a stranger is gone

This dream is for you
So pay the price
Make one dream come true
You only live twice

This dream is for you
So pay the price
Make one dream come true
You only live twice
You only live twice

    General CommentYes, it's a cover of a theme from the James Bond movie, appropriately titled "You Only Live Twice." It was originally performed by Nancy Sinatra. Yeah, Frank's daughter; the "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" girl.

    General CommentIn the live version (not sure if there's a studio one), they use riffs from Robbie Williams' 'Millenium', and say it was written for him. Interesting.

    General Commenti fully agree with this song! people really do have two lives.

    one-- the life everyone sees and knows you for, going through the motions of everyday and just living

    two-- the life that everyone wants, the one people write about in novels where the character dreams about amazing things they could see and do, and where the character finally decides to STEP UP and do what they really WANT to do, letting go of all those worries in the back of his/her head and just LIVING already.
