Missing Words

  • Again

  • Days
  • Loving
  • Security
  • Thousand
  • Away
  • Breath
  • Never


This is the end
Hold your _1_ and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst _2_

For this is the end
I've drowned and _3_ this moment
So overdue, I owe them
Swept _4_ , I'm stolen

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together


Skyfall is where we start
A _5_ miles and poles apart
When worlds collide, and _6_ are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you'll _7_ have my heart


Where you go I go,
What you see I see
I know I'll never be me, without the _8_
Of your _9_ arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we'll stand
