One of the more anticipated films of 2017 is Fifty Shades Darker, the follow-up to Fifty Shades of Grey. The first film, based off the book by author E.L. James, became a massive hit, earning over $570 million worldwide and, until being unseated by Deadpool, secured the largest opening weekend ever for a February release. Fifty Shades Darker should do big business as well, as its initial trailer set records (which have since been broken) for most views in a 24-hour period. Now, Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik have teamed up for what will be the sequel's likely popular song, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever"

Fifty Shades of Grey featured the popular song "Earned It" by The Weeknd, earning the artist an Academy Award nomination for best original song. While it's too early to tell whether "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" will receive a similarly positive reception, it is another predictably catchy song from Swift.

Haven't listened to it yet? Check out the video at the bottom of the page. Oh, and if you want to sing along, here are the lyrics (via Genius): 

[Verse One: Zayn]
Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call
It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all

[Pre-Chorus One: Zayn]
Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
What is happening to me?

[Chorus: Zayn]
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit wherever
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home

[Verse Two: Taylor Swift]
I'm sitting eyes wide open and I got one thing stuck in my mind
Wondering if I dodged a bullet or just lost the love of my life

[Pre-Chorus Two: Taylor Swift]
Baby, baby, I feel crazy
Up all night, all night and every day
I gave you something, but you gave me nothing
What is happening to me?

[Chorus: Zayn and Taylor Swift]
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit (fit, babe) wherever (wherever)
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home

[Bridge: Taylor Swift and Zayn]
I've been looking sad in all the nicest places
Baby, baby, I feel crazy
I see you around in all these empty faces
Up all night, all night and every day
I've been looking sad in all the nicest places
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
Now I'm in a cab, I tell 'em where your place is
What is happening to me?

[Chorus: Zayn]
I don't wanna live forever, 'cause I know I'll be living in vain
And I don't wanna fit wherever
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home

[Outro: Taylor Swift and Zayn]
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
Until you come back home
