Back to the Light
Far,far from the light
Hear the night creatures call
With the cold breath they howl
All the hollow hours they're calling you
I'll be there
No matter what you're going through
In the dark I care
I'm holding on,I'm hoping on
It's still the same old me inside

Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light
Back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul

Deep,deep in the night
When the world fills with tears
And the wind blows,colder and colder it grows
And the fire dims with the same old fears
I'll be there
Though maybe you don't hear me babe
I still care
No matter when I'll still be there
When you make it to the other side

I'm going back - Back to the light
Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light
Going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul - yeah

On and on
Searching for a clearer view
Winning and losing an inner war
Wonder what we do it for
Though the road seems never ending
Hold on to the hope I'm sending through - yeah

No matter where you're going to
In the dark I care
I'm holding on - believe it
We'll be walking in the light
Because there'll be no place left to hide

Back to the light
Back to the streets that are paved with gold
Back to the light -yeah
I'm going back to the land where the sunshine heals my soul
I hear you babe

Back to the light (back to the light)
Back to the light (back to the light)
Back to the light
Back to the light - yeah
Coming back with me

Yeah yeahback to top
Love Token
If you've got time to stay and listen to my storyJust a moment of your life is all I needDon't say we should be partedBecause we only just got startedLet your heart rule your head tonight

Well your Mama don't mindAnd your Papa don't mindBut you'll never be mineIf you're thinking all the timeWe can work it out rightWhen I'm holding you tightWe can make it tonightBecause it ain't no crime
Don't let the moment slip awayDon't think about it, do it
Well I know that we're in a time of changesAnd in love there is danger everywhereBut consider every portionWhen you've taken your precautionsLet your heart (let your heart)Let your heart (let your heart)Let your heart (let your heart)Let your heart let your heart let your heart

Resurrection
Gold and rose, the colour of the dream I had
Not too long ago
Misty blue and lilac too
Never to grow old

There you were under the tree of song
Sleeping so peacefully
In your hand a flower played
Waiting there for me

I have never laid eyes on you
Not before this timeless day
But you woke and you, oh, smiled my name
And you stole my heart away
Stole my heart away, little girl, yeah
Alright

Gold and rose, the colour of the dream I had
Not too long ago
Misty blue and lilac too
Never to grow old

Gold and rose, the colour of the dream I had
Misty blue and lilac too
Gold and rose, the colour of the dream I had
Misty blue and lilac too
Gold and rose, golden rose, golden rose

It's only a dream

I'd love to tell somebody about this dream
The sky was filled with a thousand stars
While the sun kissed the mountains blue
And eleven moons played across the rainbow
Above me and you

Gold and rose, gold and rose
The colour of a velvet wall that surrounds us

Too Much Love Will Kill You
I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a strugle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking 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
'Cause you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Everytime time...

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems that there's now way outta this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Everywhere I go I'm bound to lose

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 will drive you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time...

Yes, 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...back to top
Driven by You
Oh - everything I do I do for you

We touch and you're afraid of me
And we burn and now I'm at your feet
High speed, but you know you're in safe hands
In the dark we make a brighter light
From one spark to the horizon wide
We trust and together we tame the land - yeah

You'd be forgiven if you think you're dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true
Everything I do is driven by you

Oh - come on babe

Oh well it's tough to make a journey through
The right stuff is dead ahead of you and me
And you know we've still got time
Hold on tight to the driving wheel
This ride is really out of line
Raw deal, but there's no other that's worth a dime

You know I love you but you drive me crazy
'Cos you're saying all the things I want to say to you
You say
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by you

Inner children lost their way
Now they know the price you pay
I'm holding on to life with you
'Cos life without you just won't do

Driven by you

You know we're never gonna know who's dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by
Driven by
Driven by you

Oh - everything I do I do for youback to top
Nothin' But Blue
Maybe baby, I'll have you
Maybe baby, you'll be true
Maybe baby, I'll have you for me

It's funny honey, you don't care
You never listen to my prayer
Maybe baby, you will love me some day

Well you are the one that makes me glad
And you are the one that makes me sad
When some day you want me, well
I'll be there, wait and see

Maybe baby, I'll have you
Maybe baby, you'll be true
Maybe baby, I'll have you for me

Well you are the one that makes me glad
And you are the one that makes me sad
When some day you want me, well
I'll be there, wait and see

Maybe baby, I'll have you
Maybe baby, you'll be true
Maybe baby, I'll have you for me, yeah
Maybe baby, I'll have you for meback to top
I'm Scared
You take me to the party
You put me on the stand
You're pumping up my heart
To the beating of the band
You toss it in the air
And you don't care where it lands
You take it, you break it
You're hurting me

Because I wasn't prepared
I couldn't go where you dared
You got my whole soul bared
I never knew that you cared (No it just ain't fair)

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (so scared)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

You take me out to dinner
And you swallow me whole
You're nothing but a sinner
With a dark black soul
I figured I could handle you
But I'm just a toy
You're getting bolder and bolder
You're just a bad bad boy

Because I wasn't prepared (I'm scared I'm scared)
I couldn't go where you dared (I'm scared I'm scared)
You got my whole soul bared (I'm so so scared)
I never knew that you cared (yeah yeah yeah)

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (so scared)
I'm scared (afraid)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

What you staring at
You're such a scaredy cat
When I know that I just can't fight it
So what you staring at
You're such a scaredy cat
Because I'm only scared that maybe I might like it

I'm scared to move,I'm scared of standing still
I'm scared to change,I'm scared to stay the same
I'm so scared I want to die
I'm scared of dying
I'm scared of not being liked,not being loved
I'm scared to be alone
I'm scared of being with people
I'm scared of disapproval
I'm scared of life
I'm scared to lose what I have built
I'm scared of feeling scared
I'm scared of being ugly,being boring,being dull
I'm scared of my thoughts
I'm scared of being found out
I'm scared of Steven Berkhoff
I'm scared to dance,I'm scared to speak,to sing
I'm scared my body's awkward, the wrong shape,wrong smell
I'm scared to say what I think
I'm scared to say no,or yes too often
I'm scared of disappointing
I'm scared of losing control
I'm scared of pain
I'm scared of hurting,being hurt
I'm scared this will go on 'til I die
I'm scared of losing my home,my love,my kids,my kids,my kids
I'm scared my heart will break
I'm scared of losing myself
I'm scared of finding myself
Because there might be no-one there at all
I'm scared of the unknown future
I'm scared to make a wrong turn
I'm scared of the dark
I'm scared of failing
I'm scared it may all be for nothing

You take me to the limit
You take me to the brink
You left me with the blues
When you found me in the pink
You know just what you're saying
But your metaphors stink
I gotta lick it,or stick it
Or this is the end

Because I wasn't prepared (because)
I couldn't go where you dared (because I'm)
You got my whole soul bared (because I'm so)
I never knew that you cared (I'm scared)

(I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
So scared (I'm scared)
So scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)
I'm scared (I'm scared)

Let Your Heart Rule Your Head
Let Your Heart Rule Your Head

Brian May

If you've got time to stay and listen to my story
Just a moment of your life is all I need
Don't say we should be parted
Because we only just got started
Let your heart rule your head tonight

There's a full moon shinin' on the water
There's a warm breeze blowin' off the sea
And when my pulse starts a racin'
I know life is for the tastin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

It's been so long since I put my arms around you
And I don't know if it's real or it's a dream
But don't pussy-foot about it
Shout it
Just can't live without it
Let your heart rule your head tonight (everybody)

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Ooh you're starin' at my face as though I'm crazy
When I tell you that I need you every day
Can't you see that I love you pretty baby
And ol' time don't ever stop tickin' away - yeah

Well your Mama don't mind
And your Papa don't mind
But you'll never be mine
If you're thinkin' all the time
We can work it out right
When I'm holdin' you tight
We can make it tonight
Cos it ain't no crime

Don't let the moment slip away
Don't think about it - do it

Well I know that we're in a time of changes
And in love there is danger everywhere
But consider every portion
When you've taken your precautions
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart let your heart let your heart

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Oh sing it with me
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinkin'
Come to my way of thinkin'

Rollin' Over
There's a pain in my brainConfusion in my heartMy blood's fit for bursting my body apartI'm gonna ride, ride the night into the morning sun
Yeah I'm gonna make my resurrectionNo more of this crapGot a whole new directionAin't no turning backResurrection is gonna come
My spirit is weepingFor freedom it criesBeen scraping my livingIn the valley of liesGonna ride the night into the morning sun
Yeah I'm a victim of a victimOf a conspiracyFrom a corpum derelictumGonna fly and be freeResurrection is gonna come, yeah
Clear the visionHeal the systemSins forgivenRise
Flee the prisonBreak the systemSins forgivenRise
Ride the nightYes I know I'm still aliveGotta ride the night, yeahI'm gonna rideRise again in the morning light
There's no sense in my countingThe price of those yearsThere's too many heartachesAnd too many tearsRide the night into the morning sun
Yes I thought I was dreamingBut the east is ablazeWith the promise of the futureThose Heavenly daysRide the night into the morning sunRide the night into the morning sunBecause the resurrection is gonna come
