Video[edit]

The video for Live Twice was filmed in Málaga, Spain[2] in black and white.

The church bell tolls and Darius is holding a rosary. He removes his tie and watch, symbolic of letting go of the material World. Groups of photographers and fans try to catch his attention but Darius walks through them like a spirit.

He is shown chasing after a white horse but when it eventually stops it dies peacefully whilst a girl releases a dove as a symbol of hope.

The white stallion used in filming the video also made an appearance as Brad Pitt's horse in the movie Troy.[2]
