The Show Must Go On Lyrics

Artist: Queen
Album: Innuendo

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
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 breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free
The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly - my friends
The show must go on
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 -
On with the show -
The show must go on...

this song may seem boring, but it has a really strong mean behind it. he sang when he know he was dying and he is tell people the show must go on without him. LOVE YOU QUEEN. RIP FREDDIE MERCURY.

Thank you, Violet, for your comments and interpretation. It touched my heart to read the fuller meaning of Freddie's words.
