You Take My Breath Away -- Freddie Mercury Look into my eyes and you'll see I'm the only one You've captured my love Stolen my heart Changed my life Everytime you make a move You destroy my mind And the way you touch I lose control and shiver deep inside You take my breath away. You can reduce me to tears With a single sigh Every breath that you take -- Any sound that you make Is a whisper in my ear I could give up all my life for just one kiss I would surely die If you dismiss me from your love You take my breath away So please don't go Don't leave me here all by myself I get ever so lonely from time to time I will find you Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you Right until the ends of the earth I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you That you just take my breath away. I will find you...etc. I'll get no sleep till I find you to Tell you when I've found you -- I love you. Long Away -- Brian May You might believe in heaven I would not care to say For every star in heaven There's a sad soul here today Wake up in the morning with a good face Stare at the moon all day. Lonely as a whisper on a star chase Does anyone care anyway For all the prayers in heaven So much of life's this way. Did we leave our way behind us Such a long long way behind us Who knows when, now who knows where Where the light of day will find us? Look for the day Take heart, my friend, we love you Though it seems like you're alone A million lights above you Smile down upon your home Hurry put your troubles in a suitcase Come let the new child play Lonely as a whisper on a star chase I'm leaving here, I'm long away For all the stars in heaven I would not live I could not live this way Did we leave our way behind us Such a long way behind us Leave it for some hopeles lane Such a long long way Such a long long way Such a long long away I'm looking for Still looking for that day. The Millionaire Waltz -- Freddie Mercury Bring out the charge of the love brigade There is spring in the air once again Drink to the sound of the song parade There is music and love everywhere Give a little love to me Take a little love from me, I want to share it with you I feel like a millionaire. Once we were mad, we were happy We spent all our days holding hands together Do you remember, my love How we danced and played In the rain we laid Could stay there, forever and ever Now I am sad You are so far away I sit counting the hours day by day Come back to me, how I long for your love Come back to me -- be happy like we used to be Come back to me, oh my love How I long for your love -- won't you come back to me, yeah. My fine friend -- take me wiz you unt love me forever -- My fine friend -- forever -- every (Repeat verse) Come back, come back to me make me feel -- Like a millionaire. You And I -- John Deacon Music is playing in the darkness And a lantern goes swinging by Shadows flickering My heart's jittering Just you and I Not tonight Come tomorrow When everything's sunny and bright No No No Come tomorrow Cos then we'll be waiting for the moonlight We'll go walking in the moonlight Walking in the moonlight Laughter ringing in the darkness People drinking for days gone by Time don't mean a thing When you're by my side Please stay a while You know I never could foresee the future years You know I never could see where life was leading me But will we be together for ever, What will be my love, can't you see that I just don't know No no not tonight Come tomorrow When everything's gonna be alright Wait and see If tomorrow We'll be as happy as we're feeling tonight We'll go walking in the moonlight Walking in the moonlight I can hear the music in the darkness Floating softly to where we lie No more questions now Let's enjoy tonight Just you and I Just you and I Somebody To Love -- Freddie Mercury Can anybody find me somebody to love Each morning I get up I die a little Can barely stand on my feet Take a look in the mirror and cry Lord what you're doing to me I have spent all my years in believing you But I just can't get no relief, Lord! Somebody, somebody Can anybody find me somebody to love? I work hard every day of my life I work till I ache my bones At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own-- I get down on my knees And I start to pray Till the tears run down from my eyes Lord--somebody--somebody Can anybody find me--somebody to love? (He works hard) Everyday--I try and I try and I try-- But everybody wants to put me down, They say I'm goin' crazy They say I got a lot of water in my brain Got no common sense I got nobody left to believe Yeah--yeah yeah yeah Oh Lord Somebody--somebody Can anybody find me somebody to love? Got no feel, I got no rhythm I just keep losing my beat I'm ok, I'm alright Ain't gonna face no defeat I just gotta get out of this prison cell Someday I'm gonna be free, Lord! Find me somebody to love Can anybody find me somebody to love? White Man -- Brian May I'm a simple man With a simple name From this soil my people came In this soil remain Oh yeah... And we made us our shoes And we trod soft on the land But the immigrant built roads On our blood and sand Oh yeah... White man, white man Don't you see the light behind your blackened skies White man, white man You took away sight to blind my simple eyes White man, white man Where you gonna hide From the hell you've made? Oh the red man knows war With his hands and his knives On the Bible you swore Fought your battle with lies Oh yeah... Leave my body in shame Leave my soul in disgrace But by every God's name Say your prayers for your race White man, white man Our country was green and all our rivers wide White man, white man You came with a gun and soon our children died White man, white man Don't you give a light for the blood you've shed? What is left of your dream? Just the words on your stone A man who learned how to teach Then forget how to learn. Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy -- Freddie Mercury I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things We can do the tango just for two I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings Be your Valentino just for you Ooh love--Ooh Loverboy What're you doin' tonight, hey boy -- Set my alarm, turn on my charm That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (grow faster, faster) Ooh ooh let me feel your love heat Come and sit on my hot-seat of love And tell me how do you feel right after-all I'd like for you and I to go romancing. Say the word--your wish is my command Ooh love-Ooh loverboy What're you doin' tonight, hey boy, Write my letter Feel much better I'll use my fancy patter on the telephone When I'm not with you I think of you always I miss you-- (I miss those long hot summer nights) When I'm not with you Think of me always I love you--Love you-- Hey boy where do you get it from Hey boy where did you go? I learned my passion in the good old fashioned school of loverboys-- Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely I will pay the bill, you taste the wine Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely Just take me back to yours that will be fine (Come on and get it) Ooh love, Ooh loverboy What're you doin' tonight, hey boy-- Everything's all right Just hold on tight-- That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy. (Additional Vocal -- Mike Stone) Drowse -- Roger Taylor It's the sad-eyed, goodbye, yesterday moments I remember, It's the bleak street, weak-kneed partings I recall. It's the mistier mist The hazier days The brighter sun And the easier lays There's all the more reason for laughing and crying When you're younger and life isn't too hard at all. It's the fantastic drowse of the afternoon Sundays That bored you to rages of tears The unending pleadings, to waste all your good times In thoughts of your middle aged years It's a vertical hold, all the things that you're told For the everyday hero it all turns to zero. And there's all the more reason for living or dying When you're young and your troubles are all very small. Out here on the street We'd gather and meet And scuff up the sidewalk with endlessly restless feet Half of the time We'd broaden our minds More in the poolhall than we did in the schoolhall With the downtown chewing-gum bums Watching the nightlife, the lights and the fun. Never wanted to be the boy next door, Always thought I'd be something more, But it ain't easy for a downtown boy, It ain't easy at all, Thinkin' it right, doin' it right It's easier from an armchair, Waves of alternatives wash at my sleepiness, Have my eggs poached for breakfast I guess. Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together) -- Brian May When I'm gone Don't stop to wonder if I ever think of you The same moon shines The same wind blows For both of us,and time is but a paper moon... Be not gone Though I'm gone It's just as though I hold the flower that touches you A new life grows The blossom knows There's no one else could warm my heart as much as you... Be not gone Let us cling together as the years go by Oh my love, my love In the quiet of the night Let our candle always burn Let us never lose the lessons we have learned Teo Torriatte knonmama iko Aisuruhito yo Shizukqana yoi ni Hikario tomoshi Itoshiki oshieo idaki Hear my song Still think of me the way you've come to think of me The nights grow long But dreams live on Just close your pretty eyes and you can be with me... dream on When I'm gone They'd say we're all fools and we don't understand Oh be strong Don't turn your heart You're all We're all For all For always...
