"Too Much Love Will Kill You" as written by Frank John Musker, Brian Harold May and Elizabeth A. Lamers....
I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
Oh, I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'Cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
Ooh, how would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose
Oh yes,

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you - every time

Yes, too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end

    General CommentThe music is a bit dated and weak, but the lyrics are absolutely spot oon. I used to listen to this when I was 10 and just knew that my life was gonna turn out this way. Surprise! It did :(

    General Commentthat is how Law of Attraction works in our life and shows how powerful our minds are..you gave much emotions and belief that your life will gonna turn just like that..coz I believe in that rule, it is not surprising for me then.

    Anyway, this is such a powerful song! and speaks the reality for most of us.

    General CommentWhat a poignant and beautiful song about a person torn between a past love and a current love.

    And the love you leave behind"

    General CommentHmm. I think I prefer the Queen 'Made in Heaven' version. Especially the voice. Sorry Brian.
