You Only Live Twice

Words & Music by Leslie Bricusse & John Barry
Recorded by Nancy Sinatra, 1967

C   C6   C        Gm      Fm7/6 G7  C
You on - ly live twice, or  so  it seems-

Fm                 G      Fm            G
One life for yourself and one for your dreams.

C    C6     C           Gm      Fm7/6 G7     C
You drift through the years and life seems tame,

Fm               G         Bbm9 G  G9   C
Till one dream appears and love is its name.


Fm               G7     Bbm                  G
And love is a stranger     who'll beckon you on,

Fm                  G7            Bbm9        G7
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

C    C6    C      Gm      Fm7/6 G7    C
This dream is for you, so  pay  the price.

Fm                  G        Bbm9  G  G9    C
Make one dream come true, you on - ly live twice.
