Ed Sheeran has been dropping tracks like crazy lately!

After playing two new songs during his concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the British singer released a beautiful acoustic track, “I See Fire,” on Monday night. The song will appear on the soundtrack for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and will play during the film’s closing credits.

“I See Fire” is currently available to purchase on iTunes HERE!

Ed took to Twitter to share his experience recording the song:

While the song’s instrumentals are soothing, the lyrics are somewhat haunting. Check out the chilling lyrics below:

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers’ souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin’s son

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night
Calling out for the rope, sent by and we will
Watch the flames burn over and over
The mountain side

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out for the rope
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn over and over
The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
All of we souls
And I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

Oh, should my people fall in
Surely I’ll do the same
Come finding mountain holes
We got too close to the flame
Calling out for the rope
Hold fast and we will
Watch the flames burn and over
The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountains
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
All of we souls
And I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

And if the night is burning
I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns then
My brothers will die
And as the sky’s falling down
It crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground
I hear my people screaming out

Now I see fire
Inside the mountains
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
All of we souls
And I see fire
Blood in the breeze

I see fire (fire)
And I see fire (fire)
And I see fire (fire)
And I see fire (burn on and on and mountains sigh)

 

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will hit theaters on December 13. Prepare yourself for the epic sequel by watching the official teaser trailer!
