Queen The Show Must Go On Lyrics

Last updated: 08/29/2014 07:56:18 PM

Empty spaces - what are we living for?
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score..
On and on!
Does anybody know what we are looking for?

Another hero - another mindless crime.
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime.
Hold the line!
Does anybody want to take it anymore?
The Show must go on!
The Show must go on!Yeah!
Inside my heart is breaking,
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile, still, stays on!

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance.
Another heartache - another failed romance.
On and on...
Does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess i'm learning
I must be warmer now..
I'll soon be turning, round the corner now.
Outside the dawn is breaking,
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free!

The Show must go on!
The Show must go on! Yeah,yeah!
Ooh! Inside my heart is breaking!
My make-up may be flaking...
But my smile, still, stays on!
Yeah! oh oh oh

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies,
Fairy tales of yesterday, will grow but never die,
I can fly, my friends!

The Show must go on! Yeah!
The Show must go on!
I'll face it with a grin!
I'm never giving in!
On with the show!

I'll top the bill!
I'll overkill!
I have to find the will to carry on!
On with the show!
On with the show!

The Show must go on.

Freddie is telling us what he was going through just like many of his songs | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/29/14

It is a very fantastic piece o music but more is his lyrics. As he said it towards the end, his music was about "him". Mainly about how he felt at the time of making it. It's sooo sad Bcz we know he was telling us how he was suffering and how he was pretending to be fine with it. Yet he was telling us how hard it was for him to accept his predicament. One moment he was telling himself to be brave and accept it l, whilst the next, he didn't know how to carry on. It's so sad to practically watch this sensetive lover of live and life die, what a pity and loss.

I love his voice and also the great lyric! I wonder if he was alive... I cry each time I listen to this wonderful track! thank you freddie! my heart is really sad while listening to the show must go on...

the best voice ever | Reviewer: LoveQueen | 4/14/13

The song was NOT written by Roger Waters, it was originally written by Brian May, but the credites go to all members of Queen.. Pink floyd (R. Waters) just hhave the song with the same name.

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance.
Another heartache - another failed romance.
On and on...

Suggestions | Reviewer: Dazed and Confused :s | 7/15/12

Hey Rameez, if you want more suggestions of great songs in this genre, may i suggest searching the internet high and low for more queen songs. You will often stumble across some fantastic, lesser known songs like: great king rat, stone cold crazy, keep yourself alive, brighton rock, dead on time, death on two legs, its late, millionaire waltz, scandal and loads more. You would be surprised how different queen songs you will find online. If you're looking for songs with powerful vocals, may I suggest Innuendo, too much love will kill you, I want it all, bohemian rhapsody, and so on. If you are in to your instrumentals, like guitar solos, I would again recommend bohemian rhapsody and innuendo and also a lesser known track "you dont fool me" which has without a doubt one of the best guitar solos ive ever heard. If you are in to the hard rock genre, I would highly recommend Led Zeppelin. Like Queen, Led Zeppelin are one greatest bands of all time. Also like Queen, they have an extremely powerful vocalist.

Amazing song! | Reviewer: Rameez | 7/4/12

I am starting to like this genre of music. Freddie's voice is amazing! I would be very thankful if any of you could suggest songs similar to this - in composition, tune, and powerful lyrics (band doesn't matter). Could somebody please suggest something for me?

it's wonderful | Reviewer: nadia | 5/21/12

i am iranian girl. this song remind for me ,situation that my country was engaged with it after Presidential elections.government and politicians that govern in my county try to smother my country's people with any kind of thing such as incarcerateing poeple,with killing them and with exceedin to boys and girls in perion.they want to destroy people's green movment with anykind of threat tools and is totally true which inside people's heart was broken but they continue to movement only secretly.notwithstanding goverment think to keep people's mouth but they are wrong they know and comprehend that the show will go on and they can not silence people and they can't stifle people's voice in their throat..
from vowpoint of me this song i wonderful and masterpeice and no body can perform it like queen.his voice is very impressive and can wakeanykine of emotion in man

Another Masterpiece | Reviewer: Louise | 3/28/12

Yes truly another masterpiece from our GOD of music. Freddie knew how to get his point across and dared tread where no other would. The Show Must Go On soothes me. Freddie knew he was dying and let us know just how he felt. I sincerely hope to meet HIM when I turn the corner.

hard to bite the dust... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/11

"the show must go on" was one of the most admired song during freddie's last days in the music world,though his answers of all questions that integrates in this song was quite unknown to us, but surely all of us had our own answers too, but it wouldn't take a genuis to see, fredie had his share of biting the dust, common to mankind...learn that no matter how greater heights we soar, all of these are just temporary, that we should learn to care and value life to the fullest and learn to be grateful to our great director YAHWEH or else we would be like this same freddie who just pass on the show to another hero without seeing the next show himself... just mra

Spirit | Reviewer: C3-PO. | 6/30/11

This is one of my favorite songs. The mentality of it just makes you feel so strong and fearless to face all of lifes most difficult and tiring occurrences... Being in taekwondo, I play it in my head all the time when I'm fighting.

On and On.. | Reviewer: Farid | 2/25/11

I've just lost the "hope" part which exists in the song, I've lost it in my mind, and I wish we could be so strong to know that everything is so absurd, and in spite of knowing the crazy truth, we could keep the hope,
I just know that Freddie just found the truth and faced it with a grin.., and maybe he had left the public game.., !!

pain is joy | Reviewer: Isaac Azad | 1/20/11

I don't know what we are living for? but something so strong within me tells me that all the pain will end someday.yet i feel that even the pain we are suffering is beautiful if we feel the God inside us.he is inside me and inside all of us.i hope we'll all be one after we die and get to our genuine destination

luv | Reviewer: l x light | 12/17/10

ohh this song is a b s o l u t l y amazing..but like some other have already said..i cant listen to it much cause it seriously depresses me as i may cry and wish freddie hadnt ever died in such painful pretty sure he's an angel now and i "hate" all those who contorted thier face as soon as they hear he has passed away due to aids cause in their little minds they believe he was a nasty homosexual but fuck all u sick homophobes cause godd knows even many straight guys may die due to aids..*cant wait to die and join u freddie*..
