James Bond’s Daniel Craig era will come to an end in No Time To Die this spring as he bows out of the franchise after 14 years and five movies. As usual, details about the plot have been kept largely under wraps, with just a brief synopsis and cryptic trailers giving fans a glimpse of what’s to come. However, the lyrics to Billie Eilish’s theme song of the same title might unveil some major revelations.
The new single, No Time To Die, hints at a betrayal previously alluded to in the first trailer.
“I should have known / I’d leave alone / Just goes to show / That the blood you bleed is just the blood you owe,” the lyrics begin, appearing to foreshadow a break-up between Bond and his new love, Madeleine Swann (played by Lea Seydoux).
Eilish goes on to croon: “Was I stupid to love you? / Was I reckless to help? / Was it obvious to everybody else?
“That I’d fallen for a lie / You were never on my side / Fool me once, fool me twice / Are you death or paradise?”

No Time To Die will no doubt delve into Swann’s murky past, the trailer having teased a link between her and the new baddie, Safin (Rami Malek).
In the first clip released by Eon productions back in December, Bond and Swann are seen being chased by gun-wielding enemies.
