Queen It's A Hard Life Lyrics

Last updated: 04/09/2013 10:35:06 AM

Words and music by Freddie Mercury

I don't want my freedom
There's no reason for living with a broken heart

This is a tricky situation
I've only got myself to blame
It's just a simple fact of life
It can happen to anyone

You win - you lose
It's a chance you have to take with love
Oh yeah - I fell in love
And now you say it's over and I'm falling apart

It's a hard life
To be true lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It's a long hard fight
To learn to care for each other
To trust in one another right from the start
When you're in love

I try and mend the broken pieces
I try to fight back the tears
They say it's just a state of mind
But it happens to everyone

How it hurts - deep inside
When your love has cut you down to size
Life is tough - on your own
Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies
And I'm waiting for love

Yes it's a hard life
Two lovers together
To love and live forever in each others hearts
It's a long hard fight
To learn to care for each other
To trust in one another - right from the start
When you're in love

Yes it's a hard life
In a world that's filled with sorrow
There are people searching for love in ev'ry way
It's a long hard fight
But I'll always live for tomorrow
I'll look back on myself and say I did it for love
Yes I did it for love - for love - oh I did it for love

confession | Reviewer: F.B.f.m. | 4/9/13

i don't want to be offensive (not at all) but it is funny how everyone write about his/her love about songs, bands etc. it sounds like a confession. Do we really need to prove it especially on the internet? However it is nice to read it. :)

Love Mercury | Reviewer: Vall | 3/7/12

There will never be better artist and singer in the world than Freddie was. Tears are falling from my eyes when I think of never seeing him in my life. Those who witnessed his talent on the stages are the happy ones. I will never experience it as I was born the year he died . . .
May our Lord in the Heavens be with you FM

This is such a beautiful song from a truly talented band. Freddie Mercury had one of the best voices in the rock era and he is TRULY missed. The lyrics are about love and life; something we all can relate to. Thank you Queen for your musical contributions. Peace 2 all. :)

Oh, My. Ain't that perfection? :) | Reviewer: JustLetGoELLE. | 12/1/09

Oh, God. I love this song. I don't know, it teaches a lot about relationship, and the music is just gorgeous. Plus, his voice is one of the voices we won't hear again for so long.
Gosh; I miss him.

it's a hard life really.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/7/08

as dramatic as this wonderful song might sound,it's really a lesson about human relationships.Freddie always knew how to express feelings with that magnificent voice of his.and he knew how to live and love full heartedly,with all his being.that's smth we can all learn.....

I agree | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/10/07

I agree with all what's been written before... it is a great song. except i never cried at it -- i rather feel a thumping in my chest, like excitment. I wanna sing this song myself then. His voice is incredibly beautiful here -- as everywhere.
