"The Fallen Priest" as written by and Freddie/moran Mercury....
Free me, free yourself
A life of sacrifice controlled me
But those promises I made
No longer hold me
Mercurial more wayward by the hour
The shackles fall away I'm in your power

Free me, and free yourself
Come to me and let me lead you
I beg you, I beseech you to let go
My heaven is yours
And heaven is all I know

We are mortal
In the hands of God who roll the dice
Searching for an earthly paradise
So hard to find
We are mortal
Victims of our weaknesses and passion
We are reaching for the heights
(I am falling from the heights)

But I promise I would serve
I should be a rock against depravity and sin
Oh no sin no sin
Free yourself, let your life begin
Oh
To yourself be true
I am a man of God
I should not be here with you

Free me we are mortal ah

Come a little closer to the fire
To love and live that one desire
Denial of that love is treason
The love that we make
The force of our lives and it's reason
We are mortal
In the hands of Gods who roll the dice
Searching for an earthly paradise
So hard to find
We are mortal
Victims of our weaknessess and passion.
(I am falling, I am falling we, we are mortal)

Why do I believe in you
You're destroying my world
Hold nothing back
Give me all there is
I want it all

This is all there is
Prisoners of each others love
Prisoners of each others love

    General CommentThis was written by Tim Rice. It is about a priest who falls in love with a woman, but he is torn between his love for her and his vows to the church. It always makes me think of the affair between Susan kennedy and Father Tom Scully on Neighbours!

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song I have to think of an old neighbour of mine. He used to be a priest but quit after he fell in love with a woman, who he has been married to since.
