Love of my life, you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life, can't you see?
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
What it means to me

Love of my life, don't leave me
You've stolen my love, you now desert me
Love of my life, can't you see?
Bring it back, bring it back (back)
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know
What it means to me

Obrigado

You will remember
When this is blown over
Everything's all by the way
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you (I still love you)

I still love you 

Oh, hurry back, hurry back
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know what it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life
Ooh, eh (alright)

A Song to Make You Cry

One of Queen’s most beloved songs, “Love of My Life” was written by Mercury about Mary Austin. During live performances of the song, the audience would get so caught up in it that Mercury would often stop singing and let them take over. After his death, the remaining band members would often dedicate the song to his memory when they performed it.

In the 1970s, Mercury was in a long-term relationship with Mary Austin and they lived together in West Kensington, London. However, when he told her about an affair he’d begun with a male record executive in 1976, their relationship ended. Mercury bought Austin a place of her own when they both moved out of the flat they shared.

Despite the way that their romantic relationship concluded, Mary Austin and Mercury maintained a very close relationship for the rest of their lives. In 1985, Mercury stated “All my lovers asked me why they couldn’t replace Mary, but it’s simply impossible. The only friend I’ve got is Mary, and I don’t want anybody else. To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that’s enough for me.” When he died, Mercury bequeathed his home and recording royalties to Austin. She and her family still live in Mercury’s former home.

Rest in Secret

To this day, Mercury’s final resting place is unknown. After his death on November 24, 1991, his body was cremated, and his ashes were kept in an urn by his lifelong friend, Mary Austin. Two years later, Austin quietly left her house with the urn, fulfilling Mercury’s wishes to be covertly laid to rest without risk of disturbance. Not even his parents were told, and Austin has kept the secret of where the star’s final resting is to this day.

      The meaning of the song was hidden in plain sight after all.
      Although... I thought I saw an interview where Freddie denied "Boehemian Rhapsody " as his coming out song? I could be wrong.

      Quite an insightful look at the band playing. Brian May playing the solo and Freddie Mercury At The Piano And Sound desk mixing tracks.

      Oh! Let's go!
      Steve walks warily down the street
      With the brim pulled way down low.
      Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet,
      Machine guns ready to go.
      Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this?
      Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
      Out of the doorway the bullets rip
      To the sound of the beat
      Another one bites the dust
      Another one bites the dust
      And another one gone, and another one gone
      Another one bites the dust
      Hey, I'm gonna get you, too
      Another one bites the dust
      How do you think I'm going to get along
      Without you when you're gone?
      You took me for everything that I had
      And kicked me out on my own
      Are you happy, are you satisfied?
      How long can you stand the heat?
      Out of the doorway the bullets rip
      To the sound of the beat
      [Chorus]
      Another one bites the dust
      Another one bites the dust
      Another one bites the dust
      Another one bites the dust
      There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
      And bring him to the ground
      You can beat him, you can cheat him
      You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down
      But I'm ready, yes, I'm ready for you
      I'm standing on my own two feet
      Out of the doorway the bullets rip
      Repeating to the sound of the beat?
