No Time To Die Lyrics

I should've known
I'd leave alone
Just goes to show
That the blood you bleed
Is just the blood you owe
We were a pair
But I saw you there
Too much to bear
You were my life
But life is far away from fair
Was I stupid to love you?
Was I...

    This song was commissioned by the studios that created the James Bond movie. By this we mean that the lyrics are dedicated to the film. It's not what she feels.
    However:

    "I should've known
    I'd leave alone
    Just goes to show
    That the blood you bleed
    Is just the blood you owe"

    It means she was cheated on by a former lover or something like that.


    "We were a pair
    But I saw you there"

    She had a boyfriend, whom she probably saw in the wrong place, which made her change her mind about him.

    "You were my life
    But life is far away from fair"

    Her boyfriend was something very important to her, like life. But ... life is far from fair.

    "Was I stupid to love you?
    Was I reckless to help?
    Was it obvious to everybody else"

    Now she regrets that he loved her.

    "That I'd fallen for a lie?
    You were never on my side
    Fool me once, fool me twice"

    She realizes she's been lied to. That her boyfriend was never on her side. That she fooled her twice ...


    "Are you death or paradise?"
    She wonders if he has died or is he in paradise.

    "Now you'll never see me cry"
    Now she has learned her lesson and is no longer sensitive. Now it has become quite powerful.

    "There's just no time to die"
    There is not enough time to die. It starts from the beginning.

    "I let it burn
    You're no longer my concern
    Faces from my past return
    Another lesson yet to learn"

    She forgets all the memories. He is no longer in her care. She didn't care about him anymore. Because she learned another lesson ...


    "That I'd fallen for a lie
    You were never on my side
    Fool me once, fool me twice
    Are you death or paradise?
    Now you'll never see me cry
    There's just no time to die
    No time to die
    No time to die
    Fool me once, fool me twice
    Are you death or paradise?
    Now you'll never see me cry
    There's just no time to die"

    She repeats that she doesn't care anymore.

    I think it represents being betrayed by someone you loved. This is also the theme song for the James Bond movie by the same name, and this fits the theme of James Bond since he's a spy and throughout the plot, there's double-crossers, people he's friends with, lovers, and more. "We were a pair" "Was it obvious to everybody else"
    "You were never on my side" and "You're no longer my concern" make me think it's about someone who's lover was on the enemy side and they've left them now. I also think "there's just no time to die" means that they won't let themselves give in to the enemy side even though the person they love is on that side, and that they'd rather sacrifice the person they love rather than give in to the enemy. This also reminds me a bit of the Indiana Jones movie about the Holy Grail where the person Indiana's working with turns out to be a spy for the Nazis. Please rate if you found this helpful.
