"You Know My Name," performed by Chris Cornell, is the theme song to the 2006 James Bond film, Casino Royale. Cornell wrote it jointly with David Arnold, the soundtrack's composer. The film producers went after Cornell because they wanted a strong male singer (as such, it was the first vocal theme from a James Bond film to be sung by a male vocalist since "The Living Daylights"). Cornell and Arnold tried to make the song a replacement theme for the character instead of the James Bond theme reflecting the agent's inexperience in Casino Royale, as well as an introduction to Daniel Craig's grittier and more emotional portrayal of Bond. The single sold 148,000 copies in 2006 in the UK. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

If you take a life, do you know what you`ll give

Odds are, you won`t like what it is

When the storm arrives, would you be seen with me

By the merciless eyes I`ve deceived

I`ve seen angels fall from blinding heights

But you yourself are nothing so divine

Just next in line

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you

The odds will betray you

And I will replace you

You can`t deny the prize; it may never fulfill you

It longs to kill you

Are you willing to die

The coldest blood runs through my veins

You know my name

If you come inside, things will not be the same

When you return to my night

If you think you`ve won

You never saw me change

The game that we have been playing

I`ve seen diamonds cut through harder men

Than you yourself

but if you must pretend

You may meet your end

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you

The odds will betray you

And I will replace you

You can`t deny the prize; it may never fulfill you

It longs to kill you

Are you willing to die

The coldest blood runs through my veins

Try to hide your hand

Forget how to feel

(Forget how to feel)

Life is gone with just a spin of the wheel

(A spin of the wheel)

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you

The odds will betray you

And I will replace you

You can`t deny the prize; it may never fulfill you

It longs to kill you

Are you willing to die

The coldest blood runs through my veins

You know my name

(You know my name)

You know my name

(You know my name)

you know my name!

You know my name!

You know my name!
