The Dark
Words and music by Brian May

Little baby sweetly sleep
Do not stir
We will bring a coat of fur

We will rock you rock you rock you
We will rock you rock you rock you

See the fur to keep you warm
Softly round your tiny form
 
 

Back To The Light
Words and music by Brian May

Far, far from the light
Hear the night creatures call
With the cold breath they howl
All the hollow hours they're calling you
I'll be there
No matter what you're going through
In the dark I care
I'm holding on, I'm hoping on
It's still the same old me inside

Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light
Back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul

Deep, deep in the night
When the world fills with tears
And the wind blows, colder and colder it grows
And the fire dims with the same old fears
I'll be there
Though maybe you don't hear me babe
I still care
No matter when I'll still be there
When you make it to the other side

I'm going back - Back to the light
Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light
Going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul - yeah

On and on
Searching for a clearer view
Winning and losing an inner war
Wonder what we do it for
Though the road seems never ending
Hold on to the hope I'm sending through - yeah

No matter where you're going to
In the dark I care
I'm holding on - believe it
We'll be walking in the light
'Cos there'll be no place left to hide

Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light -yeah
I'm going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul
I hear you babe

Back to the light (back to the light)
Back to the light (back to the light)
Back to the light
Back to the light - yeah
Coming back with me

Yeah yeah
 
 

Love Token
Words and music by Brian May

Mama's in love, Papa's in love
It's such a shame they don't love each other.
Papa's in a jam, Mama's throwin' pans
The game's up - it's time to run for cover

Everybody's cryin' but they can't stop hopin'
Everybody's lookin' for the door that's open
Mama's makin heat to keep the old fire smokin'
Papa's hangin' on to his old love token

You got love but you ain't got style
You want your freedom but in a while
You're lost children but you know for sure
You gotta find out who your love is for

Oh baby life ain't what it used to be
You're tellin' me - not since you've been hangin' round here

Mama what you screamin' for actin' like a demon for
And hey mama quit wavin' them hands in the air
Don't talk to me that way
Well I don't see no reason to raise your voice to me
You put fat in the fire you got shit for brains
Well you don't give me comfort and a man's gotta get it somewhere
Ooh that's a shame
Yeah, well...
Mama's hangin' on to every word that's spoken
But Papa's hangin' on to his old love token

That's what it is
Here it comes babe

Oh I don't wanna leave you Mama
Oh I don't wanna leave you Papa

Long haired women gonna turn you to stone
You can't beat 'em - cos you need 'em
You gotta live - you gotta love
You're love token's gotta fit like a glove

Listen to the story 'bout the dream that's broken
You gotta keep a hold of your old love token

Oh I don't wanna leave you Mama
Oh I don't wanna leave you Papa
No I don't wanna leave you alone
But I'm gonna have to babe
 
 

Resurrection
Words by Brian May, music by Jamie Page

There's a pain in my brain
Confusion in my heart
My blood's fit for bursting my body apart
I'm gonna ride - ride the night into the morning sun

Yeah I'm gonna make my resurrection
No more of this crap
Got a whole new direction
Ain't no turning back
Resurrection is a-gonna come

My spirit is weeping
For freedom it cries
Been scraping my living
In the valley of lies
Gonna ride the night into the morning sun

Yeah I'm a victim of a victim
Of a conspiracy
From a corpum derelictum
Gonna fly and be free
Resurrection is a-gonna come - yeah

Clear the vision
Heal the system
Sins forgiven
Rise

Flee the prison
Break the system
Sins forgiven
Rise

Ride the night
Yes I know I'm still alive
Gotta ride the night - yeah
I'm gonna ride
Rise again in the morning light

There's no sense in my counting
The price of those years
There's too many heartaches
And too many tears
Ride the night into the morning sun

Yes I thought I was dreaming
But the east is ablaze
With the promise of the future
Those Heavenly days
Ride the night into the morning sun
Ride the night into the morning sun
Cos the resurrection is a-gonna come
 
 

Too Much Love Will Kill You
Words and music by Brian May, Frank Musker, Elizabeth Lamers

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster 'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I have to lose

Oh too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you - every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end
 
 

Driven By You
Words and music by Brian May

Oh - everything I do I do for you

Oh yeah
We touch and you're afraid of me and
We burn and now I'm at your feet
High speed, but you know you're in safe hands
In the dark we make a brighter light
From one spark to the horizon wide
We trust and together we tame the land - yeah

You'd be forgiven if you think you're dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true - yeah
Everything I do is driven by you

Oh - come on babe

Oh well it's tough to make a journey through
The right stuff is dead ahead of you and me
And you know we've still got time
Hold on tight to the driving wheel
This ride is really out of line
Raw deal, but there's no other that's worth a dime

You know I love you but you drive me crazy
'Cos you're saying all the things I want to say to you
You say
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by you

Inner children lost their way
Now they know the price you pay
I'm holding on to life with you
'Cos life without you just won't do

Driven by you

You know I'm never going to know who's dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true - yeah
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by
Driven by
Driven by you

Oh - everything I do I do for you
 
 

Nothin' But Blue
Words by Brian May, music by Cozy Powell, Geoff Nicholls and Steve Makin

I look at your picture
I'm nothin' but blue
I'm hearing you whisper
The way you used to do
And I can't stop wondering
Just how things might have been
No I'm nothin' but blue

My life has no rhythm
Somehow it's out of tune
I keep trying to tell them
We'll be seeing them soon
But the truth keeps rushing back
Guess you know what I mean
No I'm nothin' but blue
No I'm nothin' but blue

No use in crying - that ain't what you would do - no
Living or dying - we'll just keep on fighting through - yeah

No I can't stop my wondering
'Bout all those things that might have been
No I'm nothin' but blue
No I'm nothin' but blue
Nothin'
Nothin' but blue
(nothin' nothin' nothin' nothin' ...)
Nothin' but blue
 
 

I'm Scared
Words and music by Brian May

You take me to the party
You put me on the stand
You're pumpin' up my heart
To the beatin' of the band
You toss it in the air
And you don't care where it lands
You take it - you break it
You're hurtin' me

Because I wasn't prepared
I couldn't go where you dared
You got my whole soul bared
I never knew that you cared (No it just ain't fair)

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (so scared)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

You take me out to dinner
And you swallow me whole
You're nothin' but a sinner
With a dark black soul
I figured I could handle you
But I'm just a toy
You're gettin' bolder and bolder
You're just a bad bad boy

Because I wasn't prepared (I'm scared I'm scared)
I couldn't go where you dared (I'm scared I'm scared)
You got my whole soul bared (I'm so so scared)
I never knew that you cared (yeah yeah yeah)

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (so scared)
I'm scared (afraid)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

What you starin' at
You're such a scaredy cat
When I know that I just can't fight it
So what you starin' at
You're such a scaredy cat
'Cos I'm only scared that maybe I might like it

I'm scared to move, I'm scared of standing still
I'm scared to change, I'm scared to stay the same
I'm so scared I want to die
I'm scared of dying
I'm scared of not being liked, not being loved
I'm scared to be alone
I'm scared of being with people
I'm scared of disapproval
I'm scared of life
I'm scared to lose what I have built
I'm scared of feeling scared
I'm scared of being ugly, being boring, being dull
I'm scared of my thoughts
I'm scared of being found out
I'm scared of Steven Berkhoff
I'm scared to dance, I'm scared to speak, to sing
I'm scared my body's awkward, the wrong shape, wrong smell
I'm scared to say what I think
I'm scared to say no, or yes too often
I'm scared of disappointing
I'm scared of losing control
I'm scared of pain
I'm scared of hurting, being hurt
I'm scared this will go on 'til I die
I'm scared of losing my home, my love, my kids, my kids, my kids
I'm scared my heart will break
I'm scared of losing myself
I'm scared of finding myself
Because there might be no-one there at all
I'm scared of the unknown future
I'm scared to make a wrong turn
I'm scared of the dark
I'm scared of failing
I'm scared it may all be for nothing

You take me to the limit
You take me to the brink
You left me with the blues
When you found me in the pink
You know just what you're saying
But your metaphors stink
I gotta lick it, or stick it
Or this is the end

Because I wasn't prepared (because)
I couldn't go where you dared (cos I'm)
You got my whole soul bared (because I'm so)
I never knew that you cared (I'm scared)

(I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
So scared (I'm scared)
So scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared

Let Your Heart Rule Your Head
Words and music by Brian May

If you've got time to stay and listen to my story
Just a moment of your life is all I need
Don't say we should be parted
Because we only just got started
Let your heart rule your head tonight

There's a full moon shinin' on the water
There's a warm breeze blowin' off the sea
And when my pulse starts a racin'
I know life is for the tastin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

It's been so long since I put my arms around you
And I don't know if it's real or it's a dream
But don't pussy-foot about it
Shout it
Just can't live without it
Let your heart rule your head tonight (everybody)

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Ooh you're starin' at my face as though I'm crazy
When I tell you that I need you every day
Can't you see that I love you pretty baby
And ol' time don't ever stop tickin' away - yeah

Well your Mama don't mind
And your Papa don't mind
But you'll never be mine
If you're thinkin' all the time
We can work it out right
When I'm holdin' you tight
We can make it tonight
'Cos it ain't no crime

Don't let the moment slip away
Don't think about it - do it

Well I know that we're in a time of changes
And in love there is danger everywhere
But consider every portion
When you've taken your precautions
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart let your heart let your heart

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Oh sing it with me
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight
Let your heart rule your head tonight
 
 

Just One Life
Words and music by Brian May

I did not know you
Our lives never touched
'Til the day they gathered
To bid you farewell
And they painted your picture
And as I looked around
I felt I saw you
In the words and the sound

Your talent came flowing
Through the stories they tell
And through the faces
Of those who loved you so well
Your life gave them a treasure
A piece of themselves
Something they carry
And still serves them well

Just one life
Just one life
Just one life
That is born and is and is gone
Just one life
And I'm so glad to know you
As I know you now

Perhaps inside you
You were messed up like me
But to them you were whole and strong
And friend in their need
And what you left behind you
And what swept over me
Says that your life's work
Rolls on and on
A piece of eternity

Just one life
Just one life
Just one life
That is born and is and is gone
Just one life
Did you ever have the chance to find out
What life is all about

I did not know you
Our lives never touched
'Til the day we gathered
To say our farewells
