"In the Lap of the Gods" as written by and Freddie / Mercury....
Aaah, ooh, ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Leave it in the lap of the Gods

I live my life for you
Think all my thoughts with you, and only you
Anything you ask I do, for you

I touch your lips with mine
But in the end
I leave it to the lords
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
What more can I do ?

Leave it in the lap of the Gods
I leave it to you
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
I want you to, aah
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
Leave it in the lap of the Gods, aah
Leave it in the lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods, aah
Lap of the Gods, aah
Lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods
Lap of the Gods

    General CommentWell, to me, this is a tragic tale of loving someone but not knowing if you're able to express it enough. Leaving it to God to decide how it goes. Somehow, I get a feeling that there is something drug-related going on beneath the surface, but that's probably just me.

    General CommentIn the end of the Revisited version, you notice at the end an explosion. Well that was achived through tape saturation. Why else would they sing the chorus over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over...

    General CommentI read in an interview with Freddie that this song is like a prelude to Bohemian Rhapsody, but I guess that is more from a musical point of view than a lyrical. Given my interpretation of BR it is anyway.

    General CommentI think Freddieismyqueen is pretty much right about the meaning of this song. Also, I think Freddie might have been stoned or something when he wrote this. I mean, the song's so out there, man! Especially the intro and all that, so..yeah, there's my two cents.
