Queen Too Much Love Will Kill You Lyrics

Last updated: 09/29/2013 08:52:57 AM

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are rainin' down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long, ohoo
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growin' up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been lookin' 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, ooohh
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
Oh there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose
Oho oh!

Yeah, 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 it will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time

Yeah, 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...

Tears. | Reviewer: Sadie | 7/22/12

Singing this song in a theatre in front of about a hundred people is simply priceless. One of the songs of my life, really; I adore both Freddie's version and Brian's one, because they both have the essential ingredient: the soul.

Apt! | Reviewer: Jacqueline | 10/28/07

This is so true, "too much love will kill you just as sure as none at all", love is painful but you are better off having experienced it at least once! Kudos to Brian May for the awesome song that breaks my heart just a little bit more every time i hear it. Rest Easy Freddie knowing that you are forever immortalised in our hearts through Brian, Roger, John and your own words!
'And he realised that one minute, one second, with her was worth so much more to him than a lifetime without her'

TOO MUCH LOVE ! | Reviewer: QnkaT | 8/21/07

Yes, we're "headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs"

Queen Rulez.. Love ya Freddie
This song remind me to Freddie T-T

My life | Reviewer: Fernando Jr | 9/4/06

These lyrics are simply the story of my life.
It doesn't mean that i'm about to die, it's just that my soul is already dead.
Freddie lives!! He was made in heaven.

Uh | Reviewer: Jolanta | 9/24/04
