Queen The Night Comes Down Lyrics

Last updated: 02/28/2013 11:04:29 AM

Words and music by Brian May

When I was young it came to me
And I could see the sun breakin'
Lucy was high and so was I dazzling
Holding the world inside
Once I believed in ev'ryone
Ev'ryone and anyone can see

Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
Oooh and it's dark again

Once I could laugh with ev'ryone
Once I could see the good in me
The black and the white distinctively colouring
Holding the world inside
Now all the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it

Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
Oooh and it's dark again
And it's dark again
And it's dark again

Possible Depression | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/28/13

While the LDS reference may refer to the Beatles song, Brian May has also revealed in interviews his battle with depression and some of these lyrics seem to reflect that as well.

Very nice | Reviewer: Peter | 6/6/09

There is also what could be an ambiguous reference to "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", in the lyric: "When I was young it came to me; And I could see the sun breaking; Lucy was high and so was I; Dazzling, holding the world inside." May is admittedly a Beatles fan and has commented in numerous interviews on their impact on him.

Beautiful Song | Reviewer: Sarah | 3/25/06

Absolutely beautiful piece of work and great fun to play on the acoustic guitar. I love doing it for people! A job well done boys!
