"My Life Has Been Saved" as written by John Deacon, Brian Harold May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor....
This is where we are today
People going separate ways
This is the way things are now
In disarray
I read it in the papers
There's death on every page
Oh Lord, I thank the Lord above
My life has been saved, eaah eah

Here we go
Tellin' lies
Here we go - here we go

We're right back where we started from
People going separate ways
This is the way things are now
In disarray - hey
I read it in the papers
There's death on every page
Aah - oh Lord, I thank you from above
My life has been saved
Ooh ooh ooh ooh my life
My life has been saved
Ooh my life
My life has been saved

    General CommentI love love love this song. It's about being thankful for every minute of your life. People are dying all the time, millions and millions of them, and, thank God, my life has been saved.

    I've listened to the song a bajillion times, though, and never heard that last bit about "I'm in no doubt..." up to the end of those lyrics listed there.

    General CommentNote that there are two versions of this song. It was originally released as a B-side to 1989's Scandal, and for 1995's Made in Heaven album it was reworked to the version that is now better known. I haven't heard the 1989 version yet (need to find it somewhere), but perhaps that's where the missing lyrics can be found.

    General CommentSmall update: In the meantime I've managed to get hold of the '89 version of this song, and that one indeed has the extra lyrics at the end. Still, I think the '95 version is better, Freddie's voice sounds clearer there.

    General CommentIsn't the lyric "I'm in the dark" rather than "I'm in no doubt"? Those lyrics at the end scare me, especially considering what Freddie was going through at the time. (Yes, I know this was a John song rather than a Freddie song, but I wonder if Freddie added in those last lines himself or if John put them there for Freddie.) I always found it ironic that Freddie was singing this, because his life had not been saved...but then when I heard the 1989 version, with those creepy lyrics at the end, it was a hint that everything was not alright.

    I prefer the 1989 version to the Made in Heaven version, though. It's more guitar-oriented, which sounds nicer than the synthesizers.

    General CommentYou're right about those last three verses, he's saying "I'm in the dark". I never really noticed it, but it does make a lot more sense in the context. Whoever posted these lyrics seems to have trouble getting his lyrics right, he's made quite a few (glaring) mistakes with other songs.

    Now that I have gotten better used to the '89 version of this song, I have to agree that the original version is more likeable than the Made in Heaven version. It's just that in the '89 version there's a strange echo-y thing going on with Freddie's voice, which makes it sound a bit muffled. The '95 version removes those voice transformations, making Freddie's voice sound crisper. Still, overall the original version sounds a lot more honest.
