"Keep Passing The Open Windows" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
This is the only life for me - yeah
Surround myself around my own fantasy
You just gotta be strong and believe in yourself
Forget all the sadness 'cause love is all you need
Love is all you need

Do you know what it's like to be alone in this world
When you're down and out on your luck and you're a failure
Wake up screaming in the middle of the night
You think it's all been a waste of time
It's been a bad year
You start believing everything's gonna be alright
Next minute you're down and you're flat on your back
A brand new day is beginning
Get that sunny feeling and you're on your way (way)

Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just believe - just keep passing the open windows

Do you know how it feels when you don't have friend (friend)
Without a job and no money to spend
You're a stranger

All you think about is suicide
One of these days you're gonna lose the fight
You better keep out of danger - yeah
That same old feeling just keeps burning deep inside (inside)
You keep telling yourself it's gonna be the end
Oh - get yourself together
Things are looking better everyday (day)

Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just believe - just keep passing the open windows

This is the only life for me - yeah
Surround myself around my own fantasy

You just gotta be strong and believe in yourselves
Forget all the sadness 'cause love is all you need

Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just believe - just keep passing the open windows

You just gotta be strong and believe in yourselves
Forget all the sadness 'cause love is all you need yeah
Love is all you need
Oh baby love is all you need

Just believe - just keep passing the open windows
Just believe - just keep passing the open windows

Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Just keep passing the open windows
Keep passing the open windows

    General CommentIt looks like a anti-suicide song.

    General CommentThe phrase "Just Keep Passing The Open Windows" is an important line from the book "The Hotel New Hampshire". Queen wanted to make a soundtrack for the film of the same name, but as their own album (The Works) was too time-consuming, they decided to stop the soundtrack-work. Keep Passing The Open Window is one of the songs that were written for the film.

    General CommentIt's also a recurrent line in The Hotel new Hampshire By John Irving, so maybe one of them is a fan?

    General CommentIt would be quite a coincidence if the band and the author both came up with that same theme. After finding out that the album is newer than the book, I'd be surprised if it *wasnt* taken from Hotel New Hampshire.

    yep Freddie I've been there.
    This song really cheers me up when I'm lonely and could be anti-suicide i.e. 'just keep passing the open windows'= don't jump out of 'em!

    Song ComparisonThis song always brings to mind Joe Jackson's "Steppin' Out" (which by the way , came out few years earlier)
