"Skyfall" is the theme song to the 2012 film of the same name, performed by Adele. The film, which is the twenty-third James Bond film to be released, was released in October and November of 2012 in the UK and US, respectively.

RecordingEdit

Adele agreed to record the movie's theme song, and she was even spotted at Abbey Road Studios sometime earlier in September 2011 where the score for Skyfall was being created by composer Thomas Newman. Adele hinted at working on the song in April 2011, when she told The Jonathan Ross Show that she had to go into the studio in November to record a “theme". She further stated: "Wow, that's really giving something away!"

LyricsEdit

This is the end,
hold your breath and count to ten,
feel the earth move and then,
hear my heart burst again,
for this is the end,
I've drowned and dreamt this moment,
so overdue, I owe them,
swept away, I'm stolen.

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
at sky fall,
at sky fall.

Skyfall is where we start,
a thousand miles and poles apart,
where worlds collide and days are dark,
you may have my number, You can take my name,
but you'll never have my heart.

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
at sky fall.

Let the sky fall, When it crumbles, We will stand tall,
let the sky fall, When it crumbles, We will stand tall.

Where you go I go,
what you see I see,
I know I'd never be me without the security,
are your loving arms keeping me from harm,
put your hand in my hand and we'll stand.

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
let the sky fall, when it crumbles,
we will stand tall,
and face it all together,
at sky fall.

Let the sky fall,
we will stand tall,
at sky falls.
