  • 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
    Face it all together

    Let the sky fall
    When it crumbles
    We will stand tall
    Face it all together
    At skyfall
    At skyfall

    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
    Face it all together

    Let the sky fall
    When it crumbles
    We will stand tall
    Face it all together
    At skyfall

    Where you go I go
    What you see I see
    I know I'd never be me
    Without the security
    Of 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
    Face it all together

    Let the sky fall
    When it crumbles
    We will stand tall
    Face it all together
    At skyfall

    Let the sky fall
    We will stand tall

  • Lelane from Viet NamSkyfall is a great hit. Despite more than 20 times to hear but still very good. The success of the film 007 has a part of this hit.
  • Karen from Manchester, NhMy husband is a huge Bond fan (I, myself, can't stand the movies, but love most of the theme songs). The first time he heard Adele's "Rolling In the Deep", he said that she would be perfect for a Bond theme. When he found out that she was doing "Skyfall" he was thrilled; hearing the song, he was impressed beyond impressed. As for me, I was like Daniel Craig; I cried. "Skyfall" is sheer perfection.
