Various Artists-Moonraker Soundtrack 3
Moonraker is the theme song of the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker. It was composed by John Barry and Hal David and performed by Shirley Bassey, a Welsh singer who has performed more James Bond theme songs than any other, with three.

There are notably two different versions of the song — a slow ballad version (used over the film's opening titles) and an up-tempo disco version (played over the film's end credits). The former is the one typically associated with the film and the one featured on Bond music compilations, although both are included on the Moonraker soundtrack.

Lyrics

Where are you
Why do you hide
Where is that moonlight trail that leads to your side
Just like the moonraker goes
in search of his dream of gold
I search for love
for someone to have and hold
I've seen your smile
in a thousand dreams
felt your touch
and it always seems
You love me
You love me

Where are you
When will we meet
Take my unfinished life and make it complete
Just like the moonraker knows
his dream will come true someday
I know that you
are only a kiss away
I've seen your smile
in a thousand dreams
felt your touch
and it always seems
You love me
You love me
