Queen Long Away Lyrics

Last updated: 08/20/2013 07:25:16 AM

Words and music by 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 light's 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 long way behind us
Leave it for some hopeless lane
Such a long long way such a long long way
Such a long long way I'm looking for
Still looking for that day

I love this song - heck, I adore Queen! | Reviewer: Lyn | 8/19/13

Brian was the perfect man to sing this, his voice is warm and soft and comforting, especially when he sings the lines -

Take heart my friend we love you
Though it seems like you're alone
A million light's above you
Smile down upon your home...

I love listening to Queen, even if I have their every song on my list, there's always something to discover: Freddie's nuances on a song he sang, the thump-thump-thump-boom-boom-boom-BOOM beat of Roger's drums, how Brian made his guitar SCREAM, and like a special gift, John's complex bass runs - but it never draws attention away from the entirety of the song. There has never been a band so much in tune with each other - or there never will.

Doesn't sound much like a Beatles song, it isn't of course, but I can't help remind it towards my favorite Beatles song A Day in the Life. Both are somewhat about each day. I love both songs, very beautiful.
