Hey driver, where we're going I swear my nerves are showing Set your hopes up way too high The living's in the way we die Comes the morning and the headlights fade away Hundred thousand people, I'm the one they blame I've been waiting long for one of us to say Save the darkness, let it never fade away In the living daylights.
All right, hold on tighter now It's down, down to the wire Set your hopes way too high The living's in the way we die Comes the morning and the headlights fade in rain Hundred thousand changes, everything's the same I've been waiting long for one of us to say Save the darkness, let it never fade away In the living daylights.
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away Hundred thousand people, I'm the one they frame In the living daylights.

Seventhmist from 7th HeavenI'll have to respectfully disagree with Karen's take on Dalton. He provided a (badly-needed) serious take on the 007 role, which Roger Moore had turned into a parody of what Sean Connery gave us in the 60s.
Shandroise De Laeken from Davao City, PhilippinesThe Living Daylights may be incomprehensible but once you read the lyrics, you'll be able to make out what Morten was singing. a-hahahaha!!! This is another good Bond theme song - I prefer it over A View to Kill and Live and Let Die~ imo, take note. I just heard today DD's A View to a Kill and I don't understand what's the quality in it which made it #1. It's... o_O Anyway, maybe I'm just too biased. Barry must be glad. A-ha reciprocated his cold feeling towards a-ha. They think working with him was so frightening - shut the living daylights out of them!
Karen from Manchester, NhWhile everyone has their own opinion, I have to respectfully disagree with both of esskayess's comments; love the song, and Dalton is the WORST Bond.
Esskayess from Dallas, TxBizarre song and a pity the great John Barry's final 007 score (with a great take on the part by Timothy Dalton) was marred by such an almost incomprehensible song. This gr0up was clearly over its head here.
Shane from Columbus, Oh"The Living Daylights" was the last James Bond film to be a film adaptation of an Ian Flemming work BEFORE Dan Craig began his tenure as Bond in "Casino Royale."
