"You Take My Breath Away" as written by and Freddie / Mercury....
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh take it take it all away
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh take my breath away ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh you take my breath away

Look into my eyes and you'll see
I'm the only one
You've captured my love
Stolen my heart
Changed my life
Every time you make a move
You destroy my mind
And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away

You can reduce me to tears
With a single sigh
(Please don't cry anymore)
Every breath that you take
Any sound that you make
Is a whisper in my ear
I could give up all my life for just one kiss
I would surely die
If you dismiss me from your love
You take my breath away

So please don't go
Don't leave me here all by myself
I get ever so lonely from time to time
I will find you
Anywhere you go, I'll be right behind you
Right until the ends of the Earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to tell you
That you just take my breath away

I will find you
Anywhere you go
Right until the ends of the Earth
I'll get no sleep till I find you to
Tell you when I've found you
I love you

    General CommentVery beautiful song, but sadly I have to disagree with what the majority of what people are saying. This is not some simple love song. If you listen closely to the lyrics, it is actually quite creepy. "I will find you anywhere you go" "Ill get no sleep til I find you" not to mention the uncomfortable chanting choir at the end of the song. No, this is not some man professing his love. I believe its from the perspective of a stalker, someone obsessed with another individual. They may think their love is harmless, if not beneficial. But as the intricate instrumentals suggest, it is much darker and scarier.

    General Commenti agree - this is one of the most beautiful songs ever! to feel so much love and express it this way makes my heart melt - it is almost sad and lonely as if you are searching for that one and never find. your heart continues to search and there is always that void.

    General CommentThe most beautiful song ever committed to vinyl (showing my age). Wonderfully performed, and from an extremely underrated album.

    General CommentI love this song.
    I think it is a tragedy that songs like this are totally overlooked in favor of the more well known songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We will rock you".

    General CommentI read that Freddie wrote it about an ex-lover. Now don't let that put you off. Gays can write about their partners too. Freddie was not afraid to show that.
